Does mine still generate the exact same one?

I'm not sure what you mean.

Damn... my source gif was the wrong size... But loving it anyway. Thoughts on filling the space? Grab new source gif or is there some other way to fill it?

You can use stretch, but it will look potatoe.

You could use a custom static background image that was in keeping with the gif (the trees in the background of the shot), with the image behind the gif.

Ideally a gif that was 468 pixels wide, with the face as you have it (i.e. comfortably within the 100 pixel height).

That said, I like what you've done with it, no need to change IMHO.

Yeah, had to fiddle with the offsets, and nick font size, and there's probably a better background colour, but loving it anyway.

Notably main forum sig still not happy with it for some reason. Says it can't calculate size. But then i suspect my sig breaches some other of its rules so will not let me edit in things without losing the rest of it.

Is that MM-RNG-Luck telling you that?  I don't have any error data relating to that so not 100% sure what you mean.  Happy to look into it in more detail - feel free to post info here or PM me.

Nah, the main forums. Has done so for years. My guess is they changed their sig rules but had some allowance for existing sigs so it didn't break them all. So under the new rules my sig is not allowed. I suspect if i delete everything i'd be able to add the picture. May get to that at some point...

Still can't add 2 pics :(

You need to be a CC/COAF or above to have two images on offishuls.

Fuck me, I cbf changing CoAF to this acc, Unkoalafied is the best coaf rep.

Foxeh, upload your current "scrub" sig to mm-rng-luck as your custom gif image, and use it as the background. Not perfect but could be interesting.

Nice job with the website Adrian. I'm guessing you've used ASP.NET- have you got a history in IT/Programming? I did an ASP.NET unit as part of my degree a year or so ago. Enjoyed it thoroughly but forgotten a lot of stuff lol.

Cheers!  Yes, I started as a developer in 2000, working mostly with Microsoft technologies.  These days I work professionally as an (IT) architect.

I started off with Notepad and books from the library, and landed a role in a web development firm not long after - so no formal training per se.

As you can probably tell, I still love to code in my spare time, its very much like adult Lego.

Awesome! Speaking of Lego, it's actually what got me into programming. My parents bought me the lego mindstorms robotics sets... and that kinda kicked me off for life I guess :P 

Started when I was 15 with some C# and VB and learned the basics of programming but since then for the last 2 years I've been working for my Bach. of IT. I've done multiple units in OOP and web development in most popular languages... and I'm actually learning C at the moment (tricky but fun/interesting having to do a lot of things a more 'manual' & less object oriented way). 

That's great that you got a job without a degree. Would like to be able to find a similar opening somewhere. 

So as an IT architect, would you be designing programs with UML & other such diagrams and basically setting up the overall structure and design of the program for minions to work on? The last unit I completed was Software Architecture & Design, mainly focusing on building an app with the MVC pattern & touching on some other patterns. Thinking back, I really enjoyed that, so perhaps that might be a field I could get a job in out of uni. 

 

Either way always good to see a fellow nerd on tanks :D

C is OK, i have a decent understanding of C programming and more of C++.

 

I hated my comp-sci lec/course coordinator so I failed the subject. I did all the coding well enough (it took me literally the whole 2 weeks to do the assignments because the fucker made it overly hard for the sake of it and taught you nothing. I had to learn everything myself and brute-force my way to completion, just to get marked down for "not using s99 standard" or having a capital in a variable or some bullshit). The finals though was fucking trash, because as i said, the lecturer/course coord taught nothing.

 

If it weren't for him I would have shifted to electrical engineering :(

At a place I once worked one of the (many) running jokes was referring to C++ as "man code", because only real men can code in C++. 

Re UML, I draw a lot, but none of it would be classified as "formal" uml. I make heavy use of a few common elements, relationship types and diagrams as that's pragmatic, but %80 of what I draw is on a whiteboard.

in terms of the role, the amount of drawing, and what you draw, depends greatly on the level of abstraction you're dealing in, but the real substance of the tole is human: Herding cats and providing parental supervision.

I actually blogged semi-extensively on WTF architecture is:  Http://morphological.geek.nz

Had the option of C++ or VB for my coding subject. Figured i'd give C++ a crack as i could always change. Missed the first lecture due to reasons, rocked up to the second and felt about as much a fish out of water as i ever have. VB i dare say i could have just done the exam and passed.

Why C? And yeah I would recommend C++ if you wanted a more manual process...

Because variables made of 2 words or more should be named as variableNameHere and not variablenamehere... (easier documentation for later engineers reading your code).

That's great and all but I lost half a mark for this.

 

Out of 8.

 

AND no one was told about which standard to adhere to or best practices. 

You can guess what the guy was like based on this :P

 

I heard he was very good as a tutor though.

screw that, it was hard to code, should be hard to read ...

Good to see such a wealth of IT literacy amongst us.   Hi Saffee.

I (finally) made the modification so that you can now register and login using EU, NA and RU accounts.  I've only been able to test Asia and EU - does anyone have a NA and/or RU account they can use to test those?  Cheers.

Damn that sucks. My mate just had an issue with his tutor in another programming subject, kind of similar to that. The average score of the unit was 2.5/40. He got 40 though lol. Apparently about 15+ people got 0/40 :o

Nice will check the blog. Haha yeah I've seen similar stuff mentioned about C++. I'm of the view that if one language will work fine for a task, there's no need to make things harder than you have to. E.g, if I can do something simply and quickly in Python and get the desired result, that's fine :P

I definitely wouldn't start with C++ or C. VB would be a better place to start, but I'd go with Python as it's really easy to learn and fast to type with a lot of easy pre-made functions to help get stuff done with minimal pain.

Why C? Always wanted to learn it (and C++, I'll be doing a unit in that later)... and it's part of my degree so even if I didn't want to, I'd have to learn it anyway :P 

By the way, the marks MFF lost for one variable name without proper capitals seems pretty rough... :kjugh:

Almost thought that said "I know how to flip my computer".

Was only a keyboard tho.

Yeah I saw saff's profile then instantly interpreted it as flipping computer. :facepalm:

0 would mean the possibility to resubmit.

People he thought were plagiarising would get 0.1 :kjugh:

I now has the internets. Sadly pockets go missing every 30 secs or so.

Better news is I've ordered FTTP because fuck NBN. (Max speed in our town is limited to 25mb/s on existing services because reasons) Also new laptop feelsgoodman.
