    Anyone ever use DIET PILLS?

    I do drink just water most of the time now. Though its so boring. I just chug it and get it over with. I also eat dinner at 4pm and workout at 6pm and do not eat anything the rest of the night thinkign that may help. If nothing else atleast I don't have to wake up up in the middle of the night to pee anymore

    Anyone ever use DIET PILLS?

    I know most replies are going to be 'jsut eat healthy and excerise.. thats the thing to do' But I am wondering has anyone out there tried it ? Id like to hear from a real person And I do excerise and I am losing weight slowly. I just figure if theres something out there that can help some then that would be good I am a work at home programmer and I always feel tired so maybe the extra energy is good.
  4. Do any of these two items exist out there somewhere? 1. A RC car with a cam built in that uses wifi so I can drive the car outside and steer it by looking through the webcam. 2. A GPS collar for my cat so I could track his movment when he goes out at night and walk aroudn. Though he doesnt walk that far.. Doe to have many feet/meters is GPS accurate anyways?
  5. 1. The RC camaera might work but still I want a remote for the car that would go longer than 100 feet. 2. The pet collar is too big for a cat . plus they want $25 a month. Ill have to wait till they come out with smaller GPS devices :(

    Any of you losing interest in games specifically?

    Im 32. I think its part of growing up. I know when I was about 8 I played abuot 30 differnt games in the arcade then at 14 I played about 8 games. Now if I ever goto a arcade theres only 1 or 2 games I might like. There only about 1 or 2 games a year it seems that come out I want to try. Right now I only play AOE3 and Madden 2008 online and mr. do on mame
  7. I hear mroe about 3d scanners. I am looking for something I could scan a face with for example and import into 3ds max. Anyone know of anything out now or coming out that can do this for under $2500. Or perhaps is there places to go to rent outt he equipment for a hour or 2 for scanning ? I live in Washington DC

    Its 2008. Whats the latest with 3D scanners?

    Yeah Videotrace. That looks like alot of fun. You seem to be into this subject yourself. Im not that smart to go create my own program to do this unfortunatly. Ill get one of those lasers in a few weeks and try the DAVID program out. I wonder how hard it is to stich the parts together for a 360 mesh.

    That sounds interesting but then I read Petrou and her team hope to have a working prototype in three years And I know about the programs like facial studio that to take to pictures of the face.. There was some interesting video demo not long ago showing some product where you video tape a drive by of an object and you can get the 3d information about it. That DAVID product still seems the best since all I really need to buy to get started is a laser Maybe 3d cameras will be coming out soon in the future that can detect depth.

    After looking around it seems the only reasonable option is this http://www.david-laserscanner.com/
  11. I saw some source code on the NVIDIA site showing some projects made with CUDA. But no binaries. Since I have a 8800GT it would be interesting to see some stuff people are using CUDA for Anyone know of any demos I can download out there?
  12. I heard about this the other day and for me this makes me want to get the game. But I am curious what it is like with all human controllers Anyone out there try it yet? Is the lag bad? Does everyone shoot and never pass? Any other sport games out there that allow more than 4 players online ?
  13. My girlfriend is away for awhile and she has a older laptop 512meg onboard gfx. Can anyone give me some ideas on some not too complex games we can play over the internet ? We tried some of the game on MSN messenger but they were too basic. And I can't get Age of Empires 2 to work since it doesnt work with vista. Any ideas ??? maybe a head to head tetris somewhere?
  14. never liked age of mthology though might try aoe3 don't know if the her computer is quick enough
  15. I do the one man band thing at home. And I would look some forum somewhere I could find other musicians that could add to my music.. For me I just need someone to sing over the music I make. Does anyone know of a forum out there like this ?
  16. We have a application that runs a report. But if the report is over 15 minutes we want a way for it to cancel and continue. So to do this I assume I need some sort of multi threading. The psuedo code is like .... .... ds = GetData.SomeMethod(); //don't want to wait here longer than 15 minutes ... .... class getdata { SomeMethod() { TakesReallyLong(); } } so How do I call SomeMethod but also have some sort of timer to track that thread and cancel it if its over 15 minutes??
  17. oh.. I forgot to mention is c#.net 2.0 I heard something like Threading.Timeout() or Threading.Join() will help. It seesm what I am trying to do shouldnt be more than about 5 lines. I am just not sure what method in the threading namespace I need
  18. I am looking into getting a quad core computer desktop and looking for a good site where I can build my own. I used to use neocomptuers.com but they are not working Anyone out there have a favorite they like ?
  19. I just went there It is not what I meant. I meant a site where you build your computer online and it tracks the price and they put it together for you.. Anyone use a place like that?
  20. o kthnaks. ill try new egg Also, whats the trend with 19" monitors.. should I just be getting wide screen monitors or the standard.. In 4 years will all LCDSs be wide screen ?
  21. I have bene reading about WCF and how it replaces Web services and TCP. So I was thinking wil this be a way to do TCP with .NET game programming ? I use XNA so I guess for XNA I cannot use WCF anyways What about networking and XNA for multiplayer? Any news on that?

    Top 5 MAME games before 1990?

    I have the 4000 ROMS snd realized I do not have time to play them all and figure out which ones are worth keeping. I only want to have about 20 or 30 that ill acutally play. Ofcourse I have the classics like pac man and donkey kong but what else is fun that I should try out? My favorite MAME game is MR. DO
  23. I am on ICQ and I get some bot messaging me every hour. Why is it so hard for them to get rid of bots? Why not have one of those 'fuzzy image' verifications before a user can log on.. ? How do they work ? Is there some program out there launching 1000 instances of ICQ and reading in a online user list? Can't the ICQ detect when a large amount of messages are sent from a IP ? And with Yahoo chat 10 years ago I used to talk to people on there. Now if you try to goto a room it is about 80% bots and no one goes there. Why cant yahoo do something about this ? Is it that hard? I don't think I have any bots harass me on MSN messenger though.
  24. So if its impossible to stop them then the amount of bots must have a correlation to the ratio of users that purchase the service spammed. So then do the yahoo chat bots work in the same way? Just reverse engineer.. Isnt a yahoo account required atleast to access the chat room? Therefore yahoo could easily detect who are bots and automatically delete them ? Quote:Original post by Extrarius As far as captchas, there was a group at some school that studied them and was able to defeat 75% or 80% using basic OCR algorithms, and iirc they got up to 90% once they started tuning them for their specific project. As ranakor said, there are plenty of ways to connect to a chat protocol without using the original program. For example, I use Miranda IM, which includes full source for ICQ and many other protocols. It would be almost trivial to modify the source to be a batch-message program.
  25. Well I think limiting messages sent to no more than 50 users per day is reasonable. I am assuming as it is now the bots are sending to atleast 5000 a day.. otherwise I would not be getting so many. There alot of talk about stopping spam email but I never hear much about the war on spam bots and how they can be stopped I don't mind if new people find me and talk to me.. So that is why I don't limit it to my contacts Quote:Original post by ranakor as for bypassing icq login & fuzzy images & instances , in most cases, it's absolutely not how it works , most bots (i assume if it's like for other clients) simply reverse engineer the protocol & build themselves upon it to comunicate with the server , so the dude with the bot doesn't use icq nor has it installed , his own program acts as icq & sends date pretending to be icq to the icq servers whom have no way of checking wether that's true. as for checking amount of data from an ip that's feasible but it'd be pretty hard to lower the amount you can send too much , i know quite a few people who legitimally have 50+ ppl (& 20+ online) on their list , & anything past that number i assume it becomes worth it to use proxies to change ip whenever you get banned anyway , it's prolly doable , but prolly not worth the hassle to them either and for icq ... check do not accept messages from people not on your buddy list? i never got a message from a bot when i used it
