    The Good Old Days

    Does anyone remember this design? Feels so retro now. This was about 5 years ago - Oh how it's changed. It's fun reminiscing. :) Anyone have any fun stories about how things have changed around here? The design, the people, old quirky bugs/features?

    IE and CSS3

    Is it just me or does IE not want to display any CSS3 properties? I did some digging and found that the "border-radius" property is supposed to work in all browsers, with a -moz- prepended to it so it'll work in FF 3.6 and before. That's all fine and dandy, but when I use the property and...

    MySQL Connector/J not working when packaged into a jar

    I'm beginning to detest JARs. The first time I found the need for one I had an incredibly frustrating time getting it to read my main-class; this time however, the program doesn't connect to my MySQL database when I package the whole thing into a JAR. I'm using the MySQL Connector/J Driver...

    Been stuck on this and I can't figure out how to get the character to hit the block, and still be able to move after he hits it. Here's the code for the move method: public void move() { if (dx != -1 ) { if (Left + dx <= 150) {...

    [JAVA] Importing package interfaces vs. entire package

    Is there any reason to import specific package interfaces instead of the entire package? Does it take longer to call all classes when you import the entire package? EG: import java.awt.Graphics; instead of import java.awt.*;

    Collision bug in Java

    Long time no see, eh? Got a question for you guys in this fine establishment. I've been working on a very simple, bare-bones 2D shooting game in Java that's reminiscent of Pong, and am having a rather unsightly bug with the collision detection. Seems that whenever either player gets any...

    The Wonderful World of Websense

    If any of you try flash games when you're bored in class, then you feel my pain. My Comp Sci class is moving rather slowly, and besides here I don't have much to occupy my time with. Any flash game sites that websense hasn't found?

    Screw You Hurricane Ike

    We got hit hard last night - Ike blew our fences down knocked our power out and uprooted a tree next to our house. I think there's a dead body in the pool too but I haven't gone in yet. Power came back on just now though so I'm relieved. Gotta upload the pictures we took this morning...
