    Diablo III Party

    Hey guys, Considering the Diablo III forum is no longer present I thought I'd post here. Is anyone here playing D3? I played it for a while, got a 60 level monk and some 10-20-ish paragons, but I never made it to the end game (paragon 100) because I played solo and the loneliness kind of got...

    How to diagnose an SSD?

    Hello guys. I have a desktop configuration with a Kingston SSD as the primary storage drive, on which I have Windows. The SSD has been bought in May 2013, so it's still in warranty although I'm not yet sure what is the problem. Yesterday my computer started freezing up after a random period...

    Chris Rock - Kill The Messenger

    Funniest thing ever, I think I watched it about 10 times! It's long, but it's worth it.

    [OpenGL] World generation using no textures - only fractals

    This is not a question, I want to share something, but I had no idea where else to post it. So I just found the videos of this guy, who created a real-time world generator which uses only procedural generation, with no resources, except for sounds, which he can't generate, sadly. Check them...

    Good Python Host?

    Hello, I am interested in deploying my portfolio website on a Python back-end and I was wondering if any of you had a suggestion for me. I am not looking for something big at start, but it would be nice if they had expansion possibilities. Also, I will most probably make my app Django-based...

    I made a Daft Punk helmet!

    In my third year of college, we had a class where we programmed micro-processors and we had to choose a theme for a project that represented a big part of our final grade. I decided to do a Daft Punk Helmet (Guy Manuel's, more exactly). After a lot of work and spending white nights before the...

    Hello all! I am monoVertex, formerly known around here as Smith_S9 and I have been a member of this forum since May 2006 (actually earlier than that, but I'll get to that in a moment). That's more than 7 years, which is a lot of time and a lot has happened during this time. My name in real...

    Layout and design improvement

    I'm creating this thread for any design suggestions I might have. First off, a thing that really popped in my eyes, the spoiler button. That glow is definitely too large and it's quite distasteful, in my opinion. It doesn't go with the rest of the theme. Also, I feel there are too many...

    Responsive theme

    I suggest you guys to start using a responsive theme. I agree that it's a forum and its content would not really be intended for a handheld device, but a tablet or a small netbook should not suffer because of its small screen - there is plenty of space for a forum text. However, a handheld...

    Markdown post editor?

    I've recently started to fall in love with Markdown's simplicity and I feel it has great potential. A Markdown post processor would be pretty cool, in my opinion, what do you think? For those of you living in a cave.

    Forum width a bit too big?

    I am using a dual monitor setup, with one of the monitors having a 1280 wide resolution. However, the page is slightly larger than 1280, causing the horizontal scroll bar to appear. I find that width to be a bit big. I found these statistics on the Internet and as you can see, about a third of...
