  1. I have to disagree. This looks pretty sketchy. I'm reporting Eclipse to the internet authorities as we speak.
  2. Why is Florida so damn weird.
  3. > Only the Java engine will be developed. We already had developers in the past try to do their own engines and failed horribly. John lacked any consistency, experience and initiative and Crest had no time, neither had the ability to finish an engine, I'll give Seth at-least that much. > > > > Like you said, it would only promote competition. > > > > #Learning from the past The nerve. I will now retaliate by making known exactly the reason why not only I, but also Rob, quit. To be frank, Link is not leader material. He in incapable of providing solid direction, making rational decisions, and choosing competent staff. I attempted to develop for this community, and it was actually rather successful for the first few weeks; however, things fell apart rather quickly. The developers were treated in an extremely unfair fashion. Link made it well known that he would rather vest power in his cronies than the people who were actually working to make this community a better place. It quickly became unbearable. The final straw for me, and possibly Rob as well, was when Link wanted to meticulously control the development of the engine; he expected us to act as paid developers in an unpaid job. To me, as a full time student, this was simply unacceptable. Why should I allow myself to be bossed around when not only am I not being monetarily compensated, but also undervalued as a contributor to the well-being of this site? I wish Link luck. I'm sure the producers of such marvels as a hippie spewing rainbows at trashcans and asteroid clones will be just what this site needs.
  4. Developing two engines at once appears to be an acknowledgement by the management that they're both crapshots and unlikely to succeed.
  5. I don't really know much about mapping, so I can't tell you how to fix it. There's some oddities that I can point out. Give me a bit and I'll upload an image of them.
  6. Ah, okay. Right about now is when you know a community is on the road towards final collapse. I'm just going to put this out there: when you guys finally give up, I'll be happy to pay two paperclips and a string for Eclipse. Cheers, Former UK Prime Minister
  7. > Cringe. This was mean; let me elaborate on what exactly I meant. Your prices are not suited for what you offer. Your services came off as extremely amateurish. I think the best course of action would be to continue honing your skills as a Software Engineer until you are able to offer something more.
  8. I think many people here have a mistaken notion of what Computer Science actually is. Actual programming is such a minor part of Computer Science. In many respects, programming is to Computer Science as Algebra is to Advanced Mathematics; it's used extensively, but your education won't focus on it. A large part of our curriculum is oriented towards understanding different types of algorithms, data structures, and computational models. Yes, quite a bit of this requires programming, but programming isn't the center-piece.
  9. > I mean, I have a learning disability that I don't really understand details about. But when I read something, half the time I don't remember what I read. I can read an entire book and probably only remember 50% of what I read in it. Don't get me wrong, I love reading, In fact I'm a very fluent and fast reader. But when it comes to the comprehension, I usually don't take in what I read. In some cases I have to read a book two or sometimes 3 times to actually know the story. > > Anyways, for the comp on saturday, I have a friend of mine who has perfect reading comp scores on his placement exams helping me study. I'm hoping if maybe I get a week of studies in I'll preform better Sorry, I don't quite understand what you're trying to say.
  10. > Well Gee wiz John, WHY DON'T YOU JUST SUCCEED AT EVERYTHING YOU DO?! > > Lol, in all seriousness I have a serious reading comprehension issue. I'm not good at reading and understanding what I read. Or even remembering what I read. Say that again. I mean, can you please rephrase that?
  11. > that was the point. We had 1 hour to do them. Its not hard to code. Understanding the problem was the point if you read the post. That's my point. Most of these are extremely simple. I mean, it shouldn't take more than a minute or two to read and fully understand the problem.
  12. > I'm here to learn. What's static that shouldn't be? If you're doing things properly, there are very few occurrences where a static modifier is necessary.
  13. Sorry, but most of these are rather simple. If I have time, I'll upload some of the problems from a recent competition at my university, a lot of which involved n-dimensional node problems (sort, find shortest path, etc.).
