### Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQ Thread - Queer Support!

Names can be... weird, at times. Especially if you're sort of "half" out, so you can't just really easily stick with one thing or another.

### Re: need alg. sugg.: gradient-fill the polygon - how?

you'll have each pixel numbered with a value from 0 to the maximum distance, then just rescale these values to the range of your color space (fairly trivial, especially for greyscale) and you're done. Again, you are second one to miss the condition that edges must be black. Your way, only one the m...

### Re: need alg. sugg.: gradient-fill the polygon - how?

For a somewhat pathological case, take a polygon that is a maze, and the white point is some arbitrary point. To determine the distance of any point in the maze from the white point, you need to solve the pathing problem on the maze. Heck, to determine what the furthest point in the maze is from th...

If there's one thing Java has going for it, it's pre-built functions.

### Re: Matching any number in an array?

If you're wanting to check to see if an element already exists in a collection, it would make far more sense to use some form of hash map (such as the standard java HashMap class) to store the already-selected items, since then checking to see if an element is already selected is a constant-time ope...

### Re: Code Design?

I find that the approach that works best for me, at least, is to try to break things down into reasonably sized modules, and then program those modules to be as, well, modular as possible. Trying to plan things out too explicitly is just a waste of time (you'll discover things you forgot to think ab...

Sure, but that's true for a lot of things - everything from swimsuits to tube-tops to little black dresses.

### Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQ Thread - Queer Support!

About tights: men used to wear them , or at least the predecessors that were called "hose". It's now a women's thing, or an athletic thing. The fashion of tights for men hasn't really caught on (yet/again/lately). Yeah, I know it used to be part of a male wardrobe too, I'm just curious wh...

Random note: why don't people of all genders wear tights? They're comfy. o.o

### Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQ Thread - Queer Support!

It really is hard to get motivated to talk to people about being transsexual. On the one hand, it would be really nice to have people know and be able to be open, and on the other hand, it's really uncomfortable to start the conversation and it's much easier to just not say anything. I really just ...

### Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQ Thread - Queer Support!

Hi there all... I've spent the past, oh, ~3-4 days slowly reading through this thread from the beginning, and overall it's been a very heartening experience, even with the occasional ups and downs in the rant department. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one asking myself questions that half o...
