Re: Female Sexualization in Gaming

I'm not sure how to respond to female sexualization in games. On the one hand I do think it's excessive and often detracts from characterization, on the other hand I feel a bit hypocritical if I criticize it too much, since I do get enjoyment out of it. Would it be safe to say that you also get enj...

Re: Coding: Fleeting Thoughts

What I'm saying is that using del on anything isn't a smell (or at least, not inherently a bad one).

Re: Coding: Fleeting Thoughts

The right thing to do would be grid.contents[pos] = None, instead of del. Del decrements the reference, and allows you to bring it lower than the actual count. Setting a value to None explicitly removes the reference, and implicitly decrements the count. Del won't necessarily cause you to shoot you...

Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQA Thread - Queer Support!

It's actually at insert where the segfault occurs. In the constructor, she loops over data[i] = NULL; setting every entry to NULL. In insert, she has: cursor = data[hash_value]; if (cursor->link() == NULL) which segfaults because data[hash_value] was initialized to NULL. To me, it looks like a sepa...

Re: League of Legends

I suppose it is spammable, but the AoE is fairly small, and it's only bonus AD rather than total. It procs the bouncing blade mark though, which is a plus. It also has the advantage of making it harder to mitigate all of your damage - heavy MR builds will leave themselves open to autoattacks; heavy...

Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQA Thread - Queer Support!

Oh, I think I see. You never NULL out the entry in 'data' after you remove the last value from it in table<RecordType>::remove - so it never gets set back to NULL when you remove the last item from it. Thus, if the # of items in a hash bucket ever goes from 1 to 0 and then you try to look up somethi...

Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQA Thread - Queer Support!

That probably means that cursor is somehow pointing to freed memory. Perhaps you're freeing something but not nulling out a link that pointed to it?

Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQA Thread - Queer Support!

Out of curiosity, have you used gdb before? If so, it may be of some help in tracking down exactly where it's segfaulting, which can be useful for then figuring out why it's segfaulting.
