    Bad Jokes

    Two Irish men walk out of a bar! Get it? Har! Har! Har! It is almost as funny as: Two Mexicans drove by in a truck! Whew.... These were the two big stupid jokes back when I was in HighSchool *Shudder* Anyone else have really bad jokes?
  2. I tried to JInput working today, but can't seem to get the dang thing compiled (even with the java tutorial) So I am hoping that somebody here might have an example JInput program that I could see the source to, and see a compiled version to test out... If there are also any other tutorials besides the one on JInput's homepage (that doesn't require ant) I would also enjoy reading those. Thanks!
  3. So I'd been working on this project off and on now for quite a while, and while some of the features (such as the help file and non-essentials) aren't done yet I'm really happy how this program works. It's an on-screen piano keyboard that you can play with your mouse or computer keyboard, but also much more. You have full range of MIDI instruments and channels, and the ability to import and export MIDI files for playback. If you wanna check it out here's a sreenshot and the JAR file, I think you will find it easy to use especially using it for MIDI playback. A couple things I've added is a chord analysis tab for realtime chord information, useful for us musician types when learning new pieces. midiKeyboard.jar[300k] ff9-04-12-skirmish_with_the_silver_d.mid[50k] ff9-04-09-youre_not_alone.mid[43k] If you don't have any local midi files you can use the one provided, but it'll run almost any midi/mid file you through at it. The help file is outdated and unfinished, but it should all be pretty intuitive. Enjoy If you have any questions/suggestions please let me know. [Edited by - H_o_p_s on October 17, 2009 11:11:08 AM]

    It's been a while (quite a while) since I've been active on this site, but I'd thought I'd post these anyway: Strings and Violin [1.8mb] Ancient War [1.2mb]

    Help me - Budget Gaming Rig

    Alright, so I've built my own computer before, but the last one I did was almost four years ago and I'm out of the loop to what's considered a decent system at the moment. I've a budget of $500-600 and I've already got my monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc... I do not have a hard drive (although the new one does not need to be large... I've got a 250gig external that I use for large files), or anything else, as I'm still going to be using my old system as a server. And also, I don't want a CD/DVD burner... a standard optical will do fine, as my laptop has CD/DVD burning capabilities. While I'd love to spend $1000+ on this machine my budget is what it is, and I can't go over it. So... I'm guessing that some of you have recently built some machines and are in the know, so what should I get for my budget gaming system? Specs, links, advice all welcome.

    Help me - Budget Gaming Rig

    Okay, so going back to an am2 socket with the 3800+ processor it looks like this: Case: $29.99 COOLMAX CS-480-Black W/O PSU Black Steel/Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case PSU: $20.99 Sunbeam PSU-BKS-480-US ATX12V 480W Power Supply CPU/Motherboard Combo: $218.98 AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Windsor 2.0GHz Socket AM2 Dual Core Processor / BIOSTAR TFORCE 550 Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 550 MCP ATX AMD Motherboard RAM: $139.99 GeIL 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Video Card: $112.99 SAPPHIRE 100146L Radeon X1600XT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Hard Drive: $43.99 Western Digital Caviar SE WD800JD 80GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive Optical: $18.99 SONY Black IDE CD/DVD-ROM Drive Grand Total: $580.92 With Shipping: $611.50 Should I maybe not go with the DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) ram and go with something slower and put a little more into my video card? I do like multitasking, so having the nicer ram I think is a better thing since the video card that I'm getting is decent already... but tell me if I should think otherwise. I did not want to go to the Intel processors because of price, I don't need a *great* machine, most of the time I'll be playing Shadowbane and maybe an occasional 1st person shoot 'em up. Currently my only machine is a Powerbook G4 with a 1.33ghz PPC processor with 512 ram and a 64mb crappy video card, so a full blown pc with the above parts should really blast my laptop out of the water... So, any more comments, suggestions, advice?

    Joke of the Day

    A woman was shopping at her local supermarket where she selected: A half-gallon of 2% milk, A carton of eggs, A quart of orange juice, A head of romaine lettuce, A 2 lb. can of coffee, And a 1 lb. package of bacon. As she was unloading her items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind her watched as she placed the items in front of the cashier. While the cashier was ringing up her purchases, the drunk calmly stated," You must be single." The woman was a bit startled by this proclamation, but she was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since she was indeed single. She looked at her six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about her selections that could have tipped off the drunk to her marital status. Curiosity getting the better of her, she said, "Well, you know what, you're absolutely correct. But how on earth did you know that?" The drunk replied, "'Cause you're ugly."

    Joke of the Day

    Little Billy goes to school, and the teacher says, "Today we are going to learn multi-syllable words, class. Does anybody have an example of a multi-syllable word?" Billy says " Mas-tur-bate." Miss Rogers smiles and says, "Wow, little Billy, that's a mouthful." Little Billy says, "No, Miss Rogers, you're thinking of a blowjob." --------------------------------- Little Billy was sitting on a park bench munching on one candy bar after another. After the 6th one, a man on the bench across from him said, "Son, you know eating all that candy isn't good for you. It will give you acne, rot your teeth, and make you fat." Little Billy replied, "My grandfather lived to be 107 years old." "Oh?" replied the man. "Did your grandfather eat 6 candy bars at a time?" "No" replied Little Billy, "he minded his own f#$%ng business!!"

    [web] Tear this apart

    Hehe... I'm not the one actually developing it, I'm just providing some useful critique to the people that are. I really didn't like the site, but want to provide useful comments for the people that are instead of "This sucks". I would shudder to think that I was the one developing such a site, but not having the time to do everyone's website I'm on this project just to help out, not be the main developer... =) So, keep the comments coming please! (and thanks for the comments so far...)

    Joke of the Day

    //NOT REALLY ME... I checked into a hotel on a business trip and was a bit lonely so I thought I'd get me one of those girls you see advertised in phone booths when your calling for a cab. I grabbed a card on my way in. It was an ad for a girl calling herself Erogonique, a lovely girl, bending over in the photo. She had all the right curves in all the right places, beautiful long wavy hair, long graceful legs all the way up to her butt, you know the kind. So I'm in my room and figure, what the hell, I'll give her a call. "Hello?" the woman says. God she sounded sexy. "Hi, I hear you give a great massage and I'd like you to come to my room and give me one. No, wait, I should be straight with you. I'm in town all alone and what I really want is s-e-x. I want it hard, I want it hot, and I want it now. I'm talking kinky the whole night long. You name it, we'll do it. Bring implements, toys, everything you've got in your bag of tricks. We'll go hot and heavy all night; Tie me up, wear a strap on, cover me in chocolate syrup and whip cream, anything you want baby. Now, how does that sound?" She says, "That sounds fantastic, but for an outside line you need to press 9."

    Space Shooter music...comments please.

    It's pretty good... It is mixed quite hot, at 1/4 volume it is maxing out my headphones/ears... As far as the music goes I like it quite bit, I'm assuming that it'll loop and that last bit where it cuts off won't be there... =) Its 2:44am, so I'm sorry that I don't give this more attention, but sounding good, even if mixed very hot.

  21. Cool... the .htaccess did the trick. Thanks!
  22. Alright, for the server that I'm developing a website on the php.ini has a max upload of 2mb... We need to be able to upload through the browser 8-10mb audio/video files. Is there anyway to get around the upload limit? Can I split the file before uploading, do it through ftp (but within the browser)? Basically I want it easy for the users... click browse and select the file and upload. I don't want them mucking around with FTP (at least not locally). Is there a way to use PHPs FTP functions to initiate and transfer the file? Or is this still limited by the php.ini file (which I can't edit)?
