ya, some how the syntax highlighter  doesn't pickup code tags inside spoilers. we fixed it before but I don't remember how.

Edit: wait what? the code syntax highlighter isn't even there! what happened?
the javascript code is gone completely from the header. is the mode even installed? I know I had it edited to work properly.
not a bad fix at all.  if you want the sounds mute state to restore from savegames  you can do one more edit to save and restore the DEE::MapSources data structure with the save game. doing this actually provides a path to a better fix for your original problem as you no longer need to perform a event search just call the D_S.setup on the map ID.
ah yes, I remember finding that a while back but I never got around to posting up a fix. should be a simple as modifying the script to rescan for sound sources during updates. thouse would allow sounds to be added to the map by adding events via script as well. done intelligently it shouldn't add load either.

Nice, kinda wondering how you got that snow effect.

also fixed link

hey, nice to finally put a name to one of those ever present guests! Welcome to chaos!
some one comes up with the plot of a story and everyone else writes the story from the point of view of a character they have made up for the story.

also, I'd be interested.

Sounds like you found a good one. I don't personalty have any experience with Asus's laptops but they are a good brand sadly they never appear on shelves  inside the US
I'm planning to build a case fan controller that can also control RGB LEDs. now I know that many similar projects/products exist but none of them do ALL of what I want.  It's a project I've been obsessing over for over a year now.

The plan is simple, take a small micro-controller and set it up to get power off a molex connector. use pwm output pins on the microcontroller or an external chip to switch NPN transistors or N chanel MOSFETs feeding 12v current to either case fans or the RGB LED strips. allow reading of temperatures as well. use a Serial COM port on the micro-controller for software control of the controller. Use EEPROM to store settings for the fans and RGB strips.

Parts I have selected:

Adafruit Metro Mini 328 uses an ATmega328
Adafruit 16-Channel 12-bit PWM/Servo Driver I2C interfaced PWM chip PCA9685
Either STP16NF06 MOSFET or KSD882YS NPN Transistor

I of cource still need to find good RGB LED strips, a thermal sensor, and all the connecting components

Circuit is simple enough, 12v is applied to the collector of the NPNs apply 5v pwm to base and the emitter becomes a 12v pwm line.
3 12v pwm lines and a ground for each RGB LED strip channel.
1 12v pwm line and a ground for the fans (this is actually a point of contention for me. most case fans are 3pin constant speed 12v, ground, and hull sensor to count rpm. 4pin fans include a 4th wire for a pwn signal. but thers not really a reson you can use pwm on the 12v line on either type fan for rpm control other than it stops the hull sensor form working properly, I think, not actualy sure. as such I'm not sure if I want to make the controller function like the motherboard standard or go for 4 pin  pwm.)

I'm having trouble deciding how many fan channels and how many RGB channels I want to make
I have 16 PWM pins to use each find need 1 each RGB strip needs 3.
I'm thinking I want 3 RGB for the top, bottom, and front of the case and than leaves plenty of fan pins but If I go with 4 RGB lines I only get 4 fan pins which seems low for my use case

I'll keep this topic updates with pictures and news.

So, I was taking to my coworker the other-day. and the topic got onto drinking. H mentioned that he and his roommate had played a cellphone drinking game the other day and it was utter chaos because the game gave you chooses like "dance or take seven drinks" It sounded failure so I asked what it's name was. King of booze, he loved it. You have bragging right even in rual as fuck Butt fucking nowhere tiny ass american towns Blizz.
Syntax Highlighting is broken and doesn't seem to be in use (may be as simple as an uninstall and reinstall of the mod)

$450 to $500 USD isn't going to get you much on the laptop market ATM. Unless you get really lucky with a sale/deal.

Brands to look into right now are Leveno, and Dell (Dell seems to be returning to it's good manufacturing days of late).
In that budget range absolutely STAY AWAY form HP and Toshiba you may be able to buy a laptop with usable specs from them at those prices but it will break inside 2 years.

Something you may want to consider is searching Amazon, Newegg, and TigerDirect for refurbished deals. If you pair a refurb (which interestingly enough often have better fault statistics than the non refurnished products do to consumer protection laws.) With a consumer product warranty (refurbs don't normally have a manufacture warranty, at least not one longer than a year/ 6 months) you can end up with a better product for cheaper.

So, I'm been pretty absent around here of late. Reasons are many but my life has calmed down considerably now and I figured I'd come on and give those of you interested an update.

As some of you may know I've been looking for a job for about the last 8 months, I got really bad about 3 months ago as the last of my savings ran out and I was only able to survive because of gifts that helped me pay rent. But I finaly found a job about 3 weeks ago at the local Arby's. It's a shitty fast food job at the New Mexico minimum wage of $7.50 an hour but because I have been working my but off and learned fast mt managers have been giving me all the extra hours available.
I expected to get between 12-15 hours or less (which would of just barely covered rent and utilities ) but my next pay check with have two weeks of 25+ hours apiece so I'll be able to make the monthly student lone payment and start paying off the debt I've racked up the last few months as well. Things are looking up for now.

starting in June I'm planning to get back into school and get back on track to finish my BS of Computer Science. I've been battling severe procrastination problems the last few years that have utterly trashed my academics and even my attempts to do hobby projects. I've long know WHY I procrastinate but I've never been able to make myself stop and it started me into a spairl compleat with depression. as such I've started to get help form the local mental heath center and their cognitive behavioral therapist. That part of my life is looking up too.

Ya, it's really impressive. I've played windwaker and skyward sword at 3x res (1080p) a fair bit lately
dam Winkio got there first :P. but ya check your Script order to be sure everything is in the right place. Trust us, it matters.
we'll need the whole error to help..

well I made the shoutbox a fixed height.

I have everything set up for you to do an upgrade anytime, all files and instructions in a git repo. exactly the same steps I used to get the test site running. you just need to find the time and let me know when you want it. I'd estimate about 3-4 hours.
