In Topic: How long before you forget (programming)

27 June 2014 - 06:42 PM

I have forgotten all my pHp and even AS but I stopped using those languages years ago (both replaced by C#).

In Topic: I remember why I Dislike Windows now: Or is it Microsoft?

27 June 2014 - 06:40 PM

Because, if Windows runs the same on a Mac as it does on a PC, perhaps it is just Microsoft


It may not be what you want to hear but the fault (unless confirmed to be hardware related and even then it is the hardware manufacturers fault) is yours 100%.


If you had this kind of problem with windows it is likely you will have it with any OS. I could go in more detail here point by point on your post but in the end is sums down to the user.


In fact I have never had any issue with MS or their products at a unproductive scale since using C# (2010) which slowly made me become pure MS (with the exception of Adobe reader) for all things software related. As for Apple, until the company stops focusing on electronics and starts focusing on software on par with MS I refuse to downgrade myself, I am not greedy or suicidal enough to go cross platform.

In Topic: SQL Server Table naming conventions

Thanks for the reply. I had a look at this http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd283095(v=SQL.100).aspx after I wrote the question. I was quite surprised I never came across this but then after doing some reading it makes sense as I am not doing DB work in a team however due to the way it helps combining tables I must admit it is much better than my current 'separate by underscore' approach.


Anyway thanks for the reply.

In Topic: Will Steam the platform make Steam the OS viable?

18 April 2014 - 05:22 PM

I think it is already hugely disappointing how desktops / windows are often treated like a gaming environment only. Perhaps I think too much of a developer but using a desktop or windows for gaming ONLY is like getting a gym membership, going to the gym and relaxing in the bar.

In Topic: Isnt this forum boring?

18 April 2014 - 04:32 PM


Gamedev strengths are really in answering graphic related, and obviously game related, questions, where stack-overflow and others fail. You can almost always guarantee a graphics development related question on Bing, or Google if you are into that, will have a GD link. However if you were to search for "I am bored entertain me", it is unlikely GD would appear at all.


I don't think you should try to be entertained by these forums, that would be like trying to be entertained by documentation. I am not sure what the long term goal of GD is but somehow I doubt entertaining posters was on its list of priorities.

I must be entertained by work, if i get bored i cannot just do this - and im heavy bored recently (this topic also bore me to death to be honest;/)



Unless you are a forum troll a forum should never be considered work


If you aren't finding satisfaction with your work, the problem has got nothing to do with the forum you have been posting on.


EDIT: If you want to be entertained, go on #gamedev on IRC and ask those guys to entertain you ;)
