      Please dont tease me with a promise of the beta starting in the late morning. You're on the west coast so in reality it wont start until the afternoon. I want to fly a jetpack now

      Edit: Downloading now, it was going fast until it reached 50% now its painfully slow. Why must it torment me!?


      Well server problems aside Halo: Reach is a hell of a lot of fun and I'm even more excited about the full game now. I had a bug report to file regarding disappearing armor that i purchased and so I paid a visit to the Bungie forums and wow. I almost died in the sea of complaints.

      How goes your Beta experience thus far?

    • Well that was disorienting

      I was feeling hungry earlier and was laying down listening to music on my computer. So I ordered some donatos online (there's a donatos right across the street from my dorm). After waiting five minutes I get up to go and felt a little light headed so I sat back down. Next thing I know I'm on the floor with my head on the alarm clock and a throbbing pain above my eye. At first I didn't know how I got there, I didn't remember feeling dizzy or standing up. For a second I thought maybe I dozed off and then rolled of the bed. Then I put my hand up to my face and realized I was bleeding everywhere.
      So imagine waking up on the floor, not knowing how you got there and finding blood all over your head and face. I was pretty confused, but I pulled it together and got cleaned up. I'm guessing I hit my head on the air conditioner as I fell and so now I have a cut about an inch and a half long above my eye.

      Anything like this happen to any of you?

      This would have been a lot cooler if I would have had a flash forward when I passed out (I'm addicted to that show now).

    • Math Proofs

      9 years ago

      dono_van

      Such bullshit.
      Basically I have to write pages of work to prove things that are often obviously true (like a number can't be odd and even) or just seem extraneous.

      Here's an example.


      Prove that any integer, n>1, is divisible by a prime number.
      Proof by method of Strong Induction

      Let property P(n) be that n is divisible by a prime.
      For n=2, it is known that 2 is prime, 2|2
      So P(n) is true for n=2

      Suppose for some integer k, k>2, that P(i) is true for all integers with 2<=i<k That is, suppose that i is divisible by a prime for all integers 2<=i<k
      Either k is prime or k is composite

      Case 1 k is prime

      Then k=k*1
      So k|k by definition of divisibility, k is divisible by a prime.
      Case 2 k is composite

      Then by definition of composite There exists positive integers a and b such that k=a*b and (a>1) and (b>1)
      Since a>1 and a|k, a<k
      so 2<=a<k
      By inductive hypothesis a is divisible by a prime, i.e. There Exists a positive integer p, such that p|a and p is prime.
      p|a, a|k, by transitivity of divisibility p|k, so k is divisible by a prime
      So in either case k is divisible by a prime as desired.
      Therefor any integer greater than 1 is divisible by a prime.


      That's a simple one and I would probably miss several points because this is a type of math where even if you have the right answer you will miss a lot of points if your argument doesn't follow the way the book would do it exactly.

      This class is a pain in the ass.

      We're on our last week of classes before exam week and since I have mostly studio classes I only ended up with one exam next week. smiley0.gif Also some of my classes were optional this week so my work load has been pretty light. I have two portfolios due, but most of the work for those is already finished. Wednesday of next week will be my last day at the University of Cincinnati.

      How goes exams and whatnot for the rest of you?

    • TOR!!!!!!!

      So I've been following the news on Star Wars: The Old Republic. If you don't know that's an MMO in the works by Bioware, makers of Kotor. This game looks amazing, a fully voiced MMO. SWTOR is supposed to be very story-centered, and well, you can read about that on their site. smiley1.gif

      Anyone else super excited for this game?


      Also I was looking at all the concept art and got really excited about the character I'll make when the game comes out.

      So I went to Chicago with my friends this weekend and it was awesome. smiley0.gif
      The University of Chicago has a really nice campus, and we hung out there for a lot of our trip. Saturday we went into the city and saw Millennium park and just walked around downtown (I love walking around really big cities). I had some amazing food there. I tried Thai food for the first time (best scallops I've ever had), and we got pizza of course.
      Anyway it was a tiring trip. I started to get sick about an hour before we left so I developed a cold or something over the course of the trip, but I didn't let it ruin my fun.
      Hope you all had a good weekend and Halloween.

      Hello, fellow RvBCA member!

      It's June already (holy crap!), so we are gearing up for another Comic-con weekend meetup.

      We are planning something along the lines of a bonfire, so EVERYONE can come, regardless of whether or not you were lucky enough to snag a Con badge before the website crashed for the 30th time. smiley0.gif

      If you are interested in attending a RvB meetup in San Diego and meeting your lovely rooster teeth friends, come to the RvBCA group and check out the latest news!

      Thanks and hopefully we'll see you in July!

      When it works correctly. Earlier in the day it was glitching really bad. It deleted some of my armor, some people got negative credits, I won two games in a row and got zero credits. I think it was related to the connection issues though because later on in the night it was fine.


      Yeah I was at work for all the early problems, so I guess they fixed it up just in time for me.

      I love you for knowing what a garbage plate is

      Hell yeah man, though like I said, I haven't actually had one in a while. I was in the city not too long ago for a concert and decided to stop in to Nick's for a plate, only to find out that they close at 7 or something ridiculous now.
      Damn, now I'm craving one. smiley4.gif

      It really isn't all that hard, just very messy. Have to be quick about it, too. crackhead's tutorial over on 405th really helped me a lot. He goes about it pretty fast, but can show how simple it really can be.

      Yeah, I'm sure I'll get there. Just need to keep at it and practice. :)

      So yeah, how'd you get introduced to photoshop?

      10 years ago

      Very cool man. You'd be good at that. smiley0.gif

      I myself am still choosing exactly what I want to do. I mean, I have a general idea, but it's hard to choose. All this media stuff (Web, Video, design, illustrating) all that stuff interests me. :P

      So for right now while I'm still in high school (last year), I'm duel enrolled at Northern Virginia Community College to get my basic stuff out of the way, and then move on to a four year school where I can get my four year degree in what I want to do as a career.

      I just want to work with photoshop really. Everytime I learn something new, I get really excited and want to continue learning. I'd love to use it everyday.

      Agreed. I mean, I'm not saying I'm the best or anything (far from it, I'm no Bert Monroy), but I think I know more then the average joe. At least that's what people tell me. :P

      We should get together sometime and talk art and photoshop sometime man. I'd love to hear what you have to say and stuff. :)

      Ha, very cool.

      For me, if you really want to get technical, I've played in photoshop since I was... like, 7. But that only as far as the pencil tool. :P

      I only really started using it about... what, 3 years ago? Something like that (around the time I joined here). But my dad was a pro printer, so he's taught me stuff and I read stuff about photoshop all the time.

      Tis fun (though I'm sure you know that). :D

      Awesome dude. Yeah, I love photoshop. Use it everyday, and I'm hoping to have a career with it. I currently have CS3.

      For video editing I have Final Cut Express HD.

      I've noticed your stuff for a while now actually, how long have you been working with photoshop?

      You gotta get your total height in inches, then convert it to centimeters. That gives you your scale. However, to prevent Discomfort in the helmet and other parts, you need to scale up by about 3-5 inches. Also, you could measure each body part with a tape measure to get a more accurate scale for that part of your body.
