Programming, computers, etc. [Serious]

Postby Anonymously Famous » Tue Nov 29, 2011 3:08 pm

Use this topic to talk about anything programming or computer related. Let's try to keep the number of concurrent discussions down to avoid confusion, and let's try to stay on topic. :)

So... Anyone have any programming-related stuff they want to talk about? I probably have a quick Python script to write later today, converting a tab-separated text file to an XML file...

Didn't get to my Python script today... Too much other work to do. Fortunately, I have until Monday to get it done.

In other news, I had some tricky Word replacements to do on a batch of files. Luckily, I already had a VBA script from the last time I had to do the exact same set of tricky replacements on a different batch of files.

I made a program that did char 7 infinitively. Didn't risk testing it. Would be a GREAT virus. Just imagine...

i have a role-playing game in mind, in which there is no pre-written script (as in: story and all that), but there is a "society" of autonomous agents each controlled by an AI, and these agents would represent characters in the game world, they would do simple jobs, earn money, trade, eat, sleep, etc. And when the need arises, they would pay others (including the player) to do something for them.

i know, it sounds way too complicated and a huge task, but i do believe it's actually not impossible, and if the world is simple enough, it can be done. I'm planning to do this with a VERY simple world, and complicate that incrementally. It doesn't even need player interaction in the beginning, just a group of agents going on about their lives and communicating with each other via a small set of predefined messages sent via well defined interfaces. It would be a cool experiment. (Imagine an RPG in which there are no NPCs who just stand arond in one place all day, selling you their goods from their undepletable stock, etc..)

That could be interesting. Complicated, but like you said, probably doable.

Sticky it. It could come in very handy. Good luck with your program. Let me be the first one to play your game if it happens!

Either way, really. Pinning it will make it convenient to access.

So... This weekend I plan on delving into my Android programming book. Any ideas for killer apps that I can make in the not-too-distant future?

I know of an app that's essentially just stirring soup.

it's possible i'm gonna post the results when there are any, but currently i have a thesis-type-of-thing to make. Which is also going to be a game, just much simpler. Ima post that too, but it won't be completed in at least half a year or so.

Let us know. If I write anything that's not work related, I'll post the code if anyone would be interested.

Is that a "Yes, I would be interested" hand raise, or an "I've got something to share" hand raise?

Or maybe it's one of those hands you raise and then you realize that you don't really know why you raised your hand.

Got it. Maybe I'll do some coding tomorrow. I might have time.
