• Guess what? 7-0 123 creep kills 73 denies. Abaddon yet again.
Just had a 9-0 12 assist game as abaddon. Was the most fail game ever. 21 creep kills one deny.
You're getting confused between '60% increase in current attack speed' and '60% increase from base attack speed'. All IAS values increase your base attack speed, not your current attack speed. This means that you add the attack speed increase, you don't multiply it. Read the bit about agi hero starting with base attack speed of 1 again.

Check this guide: http://forums.dota-allstars.com/index.php?showtopic=33831

It explains more about how attack speed works.
Nice maths, but uh...

"This means 13 attacks for butterfly user for every 10 attacks for buriza user (with two of them crits)."
60% increase would be 16 attacks for 10? I don't follow... lol
The formula to calculate at what point the DPS you get from buriza is equal to the DPS you get from butterfly for any damage quantity(before adding bonus damage from buriza/butterfly):

n = [(2.74*DMG + 205.7)/(DMG + 128.6)] - 1.6

which will give a value of 0 for 0 base damage (i.e. buriza gives better DPS for 0 base damage regardless of attack speed), and a value of 0.5 for 100 base damage (i.e. if you have 50 agility or more, buriza is a better buy for DPS). Hehe... maths doesn't lie. It pretty much caps out at 100% attack speed, where buriza is a better buy for any (reasonable) damage quantity as the constants lose significance to the ratio.
Mwahaha! Flaw in your mathcraft! I knew there was a catch!

+60% IAS does not add 60% to your current attack speed. An agility hero will typically end up with about 100% IAS from agility gains, treads, whatever. Using that as a rough estimate...

An agi hero starts with a base attack speed of 1, let's say. With that 100% increased attack speed that goes up to 2, twice as fast. Adding the 60% increased attack from butterfly you get 2.6 (NOT 3.2). This means 13 attacks for butterfly user for every 10 attacks for buriza user (with two of them crits). Let's say butterfly user has 200 damage total (including butterfly bonus damage). That's 2600 damage for 13 attacks. Buriza user will have 215 damage, 215* 8 + 215*2.4*2 = 2752 damage. Disregarding evasion and armour bonuses... Buriza is better for DPS after a certain attack speed threshold (which we could calculate) for agility heroes. I'd still buy a butterfly though.

Unfortunate. Funny that my visitor wall gets these messages. Isn't there an appropriate person to PM or somewhere to post about technical errors, or something?

Are you using an external client? Maybe this would work, if you're not...
Chat doesn't work either, I get disconnected.
Lame. Explains why only Arti, DDR and myself are on.
Chat's down for me. :/
Is the chat down for you?
According to you on IRC, yes I believe it is. XD
Just wanted to ask a question, is locally showing a unit's animation safe?
You'll be VERY HAPPY to know something:
I'm making a cinematic: That is based on 2 characters from:

Guess ? Lolz!
That's exactly what I'm doing I'm doing Item1, Item2, etc, etc. So far my one problem is setting each variable, but I don't know how I should do it if the slot is null. Since I can't use structs, a loop array check wouldn't work.
@Renendaru
Hey, sounds like a good use of AIDS. Can create a struct for all heroes when they're created, and have that make triggers to detect item pick up and stuff... But you can't use arrays in AIDS structs. You may have to have, in your AIDS struct, a field for an item store struct which contains an array of 6 items or something. Maybe maybe. *Shrugs* You'll figure something out probably.

• No one is chatting at the moment.
• Varine:
Cross contamination, poor handling, improper storage, like everything that you need to pay attention to he fucked up. It doesn't take much to set off a shellfish or nut allergy, very dangerous things to be neglectful of.
• Varine:
I don't own it, I'm the chef though.
• Varine:
The owner is mostly retired, and so there's me and the other chef, and then we have a general manager that is more or less a front of house manager that comes up with ideas that are... just awful, typically. I mean they aren't terrible I guess, just logistically impractical to impossible for the size of our kitchen vs the scale of production we have to do. Like her solution to me running out of something occasional is just order more of it without understanding that, to begin with, I literally have no where to store more of anything, and also I'm not a prophet and didn't know I was going sell 120 steaks in three days. Even if I did have room to just stockpile them, those things are 27 dollars a pound right now and don't have an indefinite shelf life and so that stockpile is quickly 1,200 dollars of trash.
• Varine:
She also tends to be bad about food safety... it's actually pretty prevalent, I don't think people take how seriously dangerous food can be. Spilling nuts into a product that is used for a nut-free dish can easily kill someone. Even if they tell you about the allergy, someone that wasn't involved in knowing about that contamination might be making that order. If they don't have an epipen or it for whatever reason doesn't work, they would probably be dead by the time an ambulance arrived. And as of right now I'm the only one with any first aid certifications, which is a different problem but if I happen to not be there at the time I've seen how our staff responds to emergencies and it's not great.
• Varine:
Like a few weeks ago there was a mishap with alcohol on the line that resulted in an explosion and me being on fire. There were three people in the kitchen with me. Two of them went to go get someone else to help, and the other one asked me what to do when I got stuck in my shirt. Then someone showed up with the wrong fire extinguisher and couldn't get the pin out.
• Varine:
So... hopefully they are not the ones responding to an emergency like anaphylactic shock or a seizure. Or anything, really, people aren't very good at emergencies. That's why they tell you to specifically assign and direct people by pointing directly at them and using their name if you can. Otherwise no one will call 911.
• Varine:
But yeah that guy is fucking really bad about safety. I'm kind of doubting he's got the right certifications for what he's doing, or at least disregards them. And being a private chef I'm not sure if he gets regular inspections through the health department, they barely come to actual restaurants here. I haven't seen one in over a year, and I don't think they came while I was gone because I'm the one that holds all of our certifications so they usually call me.
• Varine:
And one of them is out of date, so I think they'd violate me for that and they have to give me copies of those so....

• Ghan:
My dad teaches the ServSafe course for food safety. So while I've never worked in a restaurant, I know about some of those things and that stuff is very important. It's unfortunate that it sounds like the local health department is dropping the ball there.
• The Helper:
Just need to make food safety and cleanliness first priority in everything
• Lord of Bourbon:
No kidding, honestly it should be a required class in all schools. I used to oversee food manufacturing for a tea company and the standards for cleanliness were just appalling with leadership failing to follow protocols and lighting incenses within the food production zones. It was a mess, they often wouldn’t even clean the tools every day!
• jonas:
your stories are both frightening and hilarious
• The Helper:
I worked as a waiter for a few years in college and in general the places I worked were clean. There was some gross stuff but nothing major or anything that would kill anyone LOL
• Varine:
I mean I'm in North Idaho, I don't think we even have a dedicated inspector up here. When I was in San Antonio they came to my food truck like four times one night, I was really confused about it.
• Varine:
I require everyone in the kitchen to have a food handlers permit, but those are a fucking joke. It's like 20 multiple choice questions and I think you only need 75%. Of all of the people I've hired, only one has failed it on their first attempt and he was a weird kid that was homeschooled and clearly was very isolated.

Very awkward, I think most of his "education" consisted of Bible studies. He didn't last very long.

• Varine:
@Ghan The ServeSafe Manager's certification is the one that lapsed. I didn't realize it until like June, I just haven't had time to dedicate to taking it. Last time it was a whole thing, took like six hours, had to go to a class, apparently they've eased up on it though. The website said i need a webcam with audio and I think install a screen monitor program to make sure I'm not cheating, I'm guessing it'll be a couple hours still. In Idaho only one person is required to have it though, like I don't even need to be there lol. Just someone that works there. It's very lax. I think the only thing I've ever been marked down on was I needed to get more thermometers, and they told me I had to buy smaller gloves because one girl had tiny hands and the mediums were too big for her, they said the tips get cut off a lot when they are too big. Then I didn't hear from them for like a year again.

• Varine:
Someone reported us today though, they said they got sick on Tuesday. I talked to them and they definitely didn't get sick from us, but I presume I'll get a visit sooner than later now though. They rescinded their complaint to the health department after I talked to them, since they were having a birthday party and apparently went to several places that day and also made burgers at home, were drinking heavily probably, and they only had calamari at my restaurant, which we prep daily. Comes in frozen, so the oldest it could have been was two days out of freeze. I think they decided it was from the burgers they made, they called back later to apologize I guess but I didn't talk to them then. My guess is they just got too fucking drunk and puked, but so long as they aren't disparaging me anymore I don't really care.

That's like 90% of homeschooled kids - the bible is the only thing you need! Unfortunately that doesn't survive first contact with the world outside the home

Dude was all birthday drunk with his family trying to make life difficult for you guys and not even your fault
• The Helper:
What else you doing in Idaho though
• Ghan:
I've heard that they made the ServSafe test questions more difficult, but they also reduced the score you have to get to pass so it balances a bit.
