heh, i tried that with snail-mail back in the mid 80's
Natacha
Though I don't think I ever played a "pure" pbem, it was more like seeing that status through a website and then sending order by e-mail
and then there were pure "play by browser", because why bother parsing e-mail where there are HTML forms
charlie5
mm, it was a good idea for the times ... but now ?
Natacha
for very-slow-paced stuff I find it still nice
like the game of go
charlie5
go fish ?
Natacha
or diplomacy, or anything that can still be interesting with turns longer than a day
charlie5
(Action) kidding
heh
diplomacy was fun
except i always got italy :(
Natacha
there are variants with more balanced maps
charlie5
(Action) would probly get .au
Natacha
there are also variants where all communications are public and unauthenticated, that's a real mess
charlie5
boomerangs vs bazookas
hmm
make my day and say you like 'squad leader' ! ... :)
heh, guess that's a 'no'
(Action) has to wonder what TZ Natacha is in to be awake at this hour
(Action) also has to wonder who will win ... eels or bulldogs ?
(Action) fades away ...

anyone here have any experience with event driven s/w ?
(Action) held out a full 20 mins
umm, 30
yourdon/mellor ?
heh, does anyone remember Yourdon ?
glug
just you'n'me Allegra--
ahem
just you'n'me Allegra--
*sniff*
(Action) can't even talk the lady-bots into a convo ... :/
(Action) divides himself by zero
(yes, it really does get this dull in the Australs)
wtp
charlie5: so this is what you do around this time :) (note: it's night where I am)
charlie5
where;s that ?
wtp
usa
charlie5
(Action) can only type ; when he means '
wtp
I'm just up because I had to work remotely from home
charlie5
-> ada fingers
(Action) cannot think of a better place to remotely from than home :)
(to -> to work)
east coast usa ?
(Action) figures they must get up earlier than the californians
Visaoni
hey now
charlie5
hey ho Visaoni
(Action) was getting almost desperate enuff to go watch the footy
Visaoni
footy?
charlie5
.au nrl
Visaoni
I'm guessing that means rugby?
charlie5
not soccer
yep, national rubgy league ,,, but it's diff to normal ruby
rugby
Visaoni
oh right, there some something about this before
I don't evne know how normal rugby goes so I just sort of let it all go
charlie5
wtp: that's no exccuse ! ... you should be here to feild my q's 24/7 !!
darkestkhan1
wtp: program consisting of no main and packages only would be 'executed' by elaboration of packages
charlie5
(Action) blames bad typing on Lucretia
wtp
charlie5: heheh. west coat btw
darkestkhan: right, but to know what packages to elaborate would need at least one file to pull them in, no?
example : file main.adb would just contain "with pkg1, pkg2, etc"
charlie5
luke: should we try to get some sort of 'open source' ada textures/models repos going ... ie fill it with freely usable models/textures ... i've had a hell of a time trying to find ones with permissable licenses
wtp
west coast**
gtg to bed. l8r
charlie5
(Action) reverts to footy
Visaoni
charlie5: I'm pretty sure I've seen a few sites for that kind of thing
charlie5
Visaoni: i've googled and everytime come up with 10 dozen *commerical* site (with a few 'free' models/textures each) .... :/
textures are easy ... take a photo and crop it ... there are a heaps of great textures ready for the 'snapping'
models are, of course, much harder
some way of getting camera photos converted to 3d wold be magic
Visaoni
perhaps literally :)
charlie5
:)
Visaoni
I'm sure you've seen this, and I'm not sure this is what I was thinking of but what about http://opengameart.org/
charlie5
you would need a snapshots all around the objecty to be modelled
(Action) thought it might be done with a genetic alg ... given several photos about all each axis
the photos provide the 'desired' outcome
the GA evolves a set of graphic primitives with 'survival' function being rendered images closest to the orig photo's
Visaoni
hm, interesting idea
charlie5
opengameart -> i should take a closer look
Visaoni
maybe you could do it sort of like a stone sculpter or something. instead of trying to work with graphics primitives
charlie5
so far, i have just grabbed the most avail textures/models
Visaoni
start with a "hunk" of material and describe how you cut things off
charlie5
:)
Visaoni
but I know virtually nothing about 3D modeling stuff, so perhaps that's just making it a harder problem :)
charlie5
yes, indeed ... that might work wel
m
3d modeller is a hard prob
the "start with a "hunk" of material and describe how you cut things off" is how ppl sculptors work
ppl -> human sculptors
Visaoni: have i tried to talk you into joining the dream rpg game proj yet ?
Visaoni
you have not
