Re: Random natterings

Oh, I insist. Insistently.

Also, have you ever said a phrase so many times in your head that it sounds like drivel by the end? Because now nothing sounds right and the world might be burning.

Re: Coding: Fleeting Thoughts

Even better, repository, though maybe a writeup would be a good idea... :mrgreen: I haven't tried it yet, but you might just be my favorite person for today. Also, remember kids, read the fucking manual. Sometimes, StackOverflow says that a value will be in [1] instead of [0], and you will cry your...

Re: ANGRY NATTERINGS

In any case, the operations should be self-evident or easily discoverable. The interface should be clean (which is harder with small screens), thus help is often hidden. Tooltips were never meant for this, but are useful in this manner. I agree with you. It might be Snapchat that has a "tutori...

Re: ANGRY NATTERINGS

I'm annoyed that software developers decided that an intuitive interface means having icons with vague shapes, so I have to guess what the icon stands for, usually by activating things at random and then trying to determine what I've done. Yes, this. I've lost track of the number of times I've been...

Re: Coding: Fleeting Thoughts

↶ The Windows.Media.OCR library is pretty nice and works better than Tesseract... except it's locked to UWP... Scratch that, I got it working outside of UWP... Now I have to weigh the fact that what I have done is probably terrible and I should feel bad... On the other hand... it works. EDIT: If yo...

But Adobe Acrobat comes packaged with Google Ultron, and we all know that that is the greatest browser to ever exist!

Re: 1660: "Captain Speaking"

I got really confused as to why there was a new comic on Saturday. I'm still not used to bank holidays. I've had the whole week off work. I don't know what day it is any more. I got back from Vegas 3 days ago, and I'm on my 3rd Monday of the week. I didn't realize that the unending hangover was a t...

Re: USB that serves as an HID and a storage device

Ok. I've just found out about composite USB devices, and specifically this post: https://www.microchip.com/forums/m725554.aspx , but I have NO IDEA what to do with this knowledge. Where do I even start? My usual practice of Googling until I find something isn't doing me any good.

USB that serves as an HID and a storage device

Hello. I'm working on a project that would include a USB drive that contains a program that the computer user would download and install. The USB drive could also, on the press of a physical button, execute a command (through the HID interface) that would start a part of that program. I understand t...

I guess this is one of those "if somebody thinks of it, it's already been done before" cases. Drat.

Re: Coding: Fleeting Thoughts

I'm just bored at work and was reading the post about the programming language for the XKCD phone. It got me thinking, would it be possible to build an "RNG based" language, where, for example, there is a probability that your variables will shift one bit? I'm not sure what the purpose of ...

Re: 1626: "Judgment Day"

GOOMHR!!!! Just last week my friend and I were joking about ICBMCs (Intercontinental Ballistic Mail Carriers), and now Amazon has to come along and steal my idea. All I wanted to do was deliver a package to your house in 30 minutes or less, guaranteed. What isn't guaranteed is that your house or nei...

Re: 1619: Watson Medical Algorithm

Does anyone know how I could get a larger version of this comic? My dad (a physician) wants to post a poster of it in one of his exam rooms. He also discussed highlighting certain steps, to scare patients. If you have any advice for what to highlight, feel free to provide suggestions.
