How do you usually work with flash? As in, when your importing graphics which formats do you use? I have no idea. I've never done it before. But it will be a good learning experience for me. I could add it to my list of skills. For me, learning works best by delving into some project and learning a...

I could give it a try

I've never done anything with Illustrator files before but I'm willing to figure it out. Besides, I like learning new things. Credit? You have to be kidding. With my credit I can't get a library card!!! Oh, you mean give credit to people who did the maps themselves?!? :oops: I wouldn't have it any o...

So Many Maps

There are so many wonderful maps that people have put together. These will be useful for many I'm sure, one of which is me. :) I remember a discussion somewhere about using some kind of flash web page thing for these. I think it would be a good idea, especially for those of us who have multiple moni...

Just wait until I get a calculator!!!

I actually see merit in that theory Randy! Just wait until I get a calculator, then you'll see a massive migraine coming on! :lol: he can stuff a babel fish in his ear... I have one already but it's defective. It only translates Klingon and Esperanto. And I was run over by a zebra once but I had a ...

Explanation

Hi Rebecca, t = time and s = space. t = 1 / (s / s ^ 2) ^ 2 If the distance from Lave to Zianonce is 7 light years, s = 7. t = 1 / (7 / 7 ^ 2) ^ 2 t = 1 / (7 / 49) ^ 2 t = 1 / (0.142857) ^ 2 t = 7 ^ 2 t = 49 I basically took time = distance ^ 2 and made an inverse out of it unnecessarily complicatin...

Im halfway through building a cockpit
Hi David,

Are you putting in other display devices in the cockpit like other screens or maybe LED displays? If so, I could use a few tips.

Thanks,

The R.I.S.T.

...anybody wanna fudge up some mathematical formula to explain why it's the square of the distance travelled? A famous Riedquatian theoretical physicist named Doctor Redflegie (Red for short) called his theory the Reverse Inverse Square Theory (R.I.S.T) which states that as the hyperspace conduit c...

It's The Centerfold

It's the centerfold that may not be suitable. Miss Lobstoid October of Playpet magazine may scare kids into becoming rock hermits at an early age. It's not the claws so much as the long whiskers.

Fun is the goal.

I guess fun is defined in many ways depending on one's point-of-view. I'm not a competitive person. Quite frankly, I don't care to play games where I compete with other people. However, I love the idea of games that support the concept of team work. The other things I like are exploration which Ooli...

Always An End Of World Prophecy

The end of the world has been predicted so many times and so many times the date has come and gone and the world is still here. But it sells books and television spots and makes charlatans rich. Assuming for the moment that somehow there really is an invisible planet on a collision course with Earth...

A paint job and a smash up

My son got a hold of a pickup truck, used. After a new paint job, and a new stereo with speakers he drove to school with his girlfriend and promptly ran off the road into a ditch where there was some construction work. He had the truck from ownership to wreck for about three weeks total and since it...

It's Weird But...

Last Sunday I wrote a quick program to see if I could intercept it. Well, port 8563 gave me the same results as the console. So changed it to port 999 and changed the configuration in the OXP to match and I had something interesting happen. The data flowed back and forth. The server code was program...
