Those "with"'s make the program more confusing... The with blocks are fine, but it would be nice for someone just cruising the code to see: with player .position .velocity .color end with than to see: with player .p .v .c end with Of course with my limited storage space in my own memory, I can bare...

I think the code is self-explanatory. ;-) Great example. Really love the bouncing off borders. A suggestion: The code would be a lot more self explanatory if it had less x, y, z, tx, ty, etc., variables and they were a little more spelled out like temp_x_position, and global_map_x_position. I know ...

I think some coding practices follow a convention of adding a suffix to the variable like: strMyVar = string intMyVar = integer However, I usually name the variable something that is easy to remember like: UserFirstName = string UserTotalPoints = integer Once you progress past the a$, b$, C%, etc., ...

If you are programing for windows, please do not try to force your programs to always open full-screen. If there is one thing that I had to pick that is more annoying than all others is when a programmer forces a full-screen and/or non standard resolution on me. If I want my console programs full-sc...

Retract my statement?

You don't want to get into a "why IE sucks" argument, and yet you post a comment about how no one in their right mind would use IE and your very first page of your site has a "warning" for IE users to get another browser. As a personal preference, I gave up IE about a year ago because it became way ...

A five minute search gives me this: <HTML> <HEAD> <SCRIPT LANGUAGE= "JavaScript"> function isBrowser(b) { /* ** b browser name ** returns true if browser equals */ browserOk = false; browserOk = (navigator.appName.indexOf(b) != -1); return browserOk; } if ...

You know, I think its"cute" to have the little warning message about IE users not being able to use the site. However, if you lack the skills or inclination to actually code the message to only show up when an IE user hits the site it just makes you look pathetic.

Remember this: A random access file just means that all record lengths are the same so that a "random access" to any point in the file can be determined by taking the length of the record and multiplying out by the record needed to get to a specific point in the file. An old trick I have used many t...
