Re: Coursera.org

... I might try and pickup java as that seems to emphasize OO. I dunno, is it really all the different from C#? ... Pretty much no practical difference for the layman and the amateurs, even considering just the sub-grouping of OOP. C# has some improvements over Java (proper "foreach", delegates, a ...

Re: Coursera.org

I really need to brush up on OO, Design patterns and design methodologies. Do they have anything like that? Not exactly sure what you need (which might be different from what you *think* you need - which I also not 100% clear), but with a very quick search these might be of interest: Algorithmic Th...

Re: Coursera.org

Did you search the courses page for those kinds of things..? I found lots about "game theory" (though that's mostly about economics), some stuff about games (as in really "games" or art) and lots of stuff about AI.

I'm enjoying classes on coursera.org All(?) the classes are free (gratis) and are online. The ones I've seen so far are only video lectures with some quizzes, and other supportive things like forums. You have the option of paying in order to apply for a certification of completion. I'm having a blas...

Re: Steam tried to install me a game without my permission

And that is why I found it somewhat unpleasant to have games automatically added to my library but I was never all that upset at that. Kloot's post is relevant assuming (like I am) that he means that Steam's license almost certainly took away my right to not have stuff installed into my PC without m...

Re: How to know if java AI build order fail

You can keep track of what your builder was trying to build. Ex: it was trying to build a Mex at (25; 73). Whenever you want to check if it succeeded (ex: after it goes idle), you can sweep all your units to see if you one of them is a Mex at (25; 73). This is just a work-around, of course... It's a...

Maybe try an analogy:
You've been buying lots of new furniture on Ikillya. One day, you get home and you find Ikillya personel inside your home without your permission installing a chest of drawers in your bathroom. What is the issue?

Sorry, vacations just started - airplane back home, family, friends, stuff. The game is Sanctum 2. I too have had games automatically be added to my library, which is unpleasent enough.

Steam tried to install me a game without my permission

I'm severely pissed at Steam - they tried to install me a game without my permission. I started Steam, as usual, since I was going to watch some Dota 2. Steam starts installing 2 updates, as usual. One of them was an update to Dota 2, as usual. The other one was installing a freaking game!!! I didn'...

... engines and 3d software being sold on Steam for 200+ bucks, and people buy them... Non-intentional FUD over free (gratis) options - will they be functionally ok, will they be supported etc. etc. etc.?
