I'm not convinced real estate in general is a particularly good investment, but then I've never really bothered to educate myself on the subject.Where will all the people displaced by global warming go? The moon? Real estate is a great investment tool, provided you don't do something retarded like invest in a shitty stick house farm (aka a suburb or exurb) dozens of miles from amenities, jobs, public transportation, and schools. Most businesses don't own their property, they rent it. Most people rent their house or apartment. Most people would also prefer not to need to drive 50 or more miles a day to get to school and work.
What might be deemed "useful" can vary considerably from moment to moment. Some might even say that a liberal arts education is "useful" in order to learn how to more persuasively lead others to rally to one's cause and to understand historical reasons for lack of success.
And speaking of bias, does anyone else think it's at least somewhat suspicious that the much-ballyhooed "solution" to Glowbull Wormening™ is to give more money and power to the very people who have proven themselves to be completely irresponsible with the money and power they've already taken?Who exactly is this? Remember, not all of us watch network news so you actually have to make your argument instead of relying on a circlejerk to reinforce your sense of butthurt and supremacy over us filthy casuals.
Bread and circuses, indeed.
Leftwing ideologies (socialism, communism, American "liberalism") promote the collective will over the rights of the individual.Bias detected!
Rightwing ideologies (anarchism, libertarianism, certain aspects of American "conservatism") promote the rights of the individual over the whims of the collective.
Dunno about the Mac version, but the Linux version of pSX doesn't include a debugger. Run the Windows version if you can. (In general, finding functional non-WIndows debuggers is...
difficultnearly fucking impossible).
And companies often hire people with "romhacker" skills when they are doing ports based on a game they lost all assets for except for the final released game (Hudson with their Tengai Makyou/Galaxy Frau Yuna stuff, Square Enix with Kingdom Hearts 1 of all things, and MANY other things) so that they recover their stuff from the iso and all of the game logic.No way! Details?
In fact, I think Nintendo does it very frequently with the VC releases.
For those who want to take a look to the ASM code, it was released a couple of years ago:
I don't know if I'm right, but I think those files were posted in byuu's forum too.
About the tools, if anybody wants to start a translation, I'll be willing to send them; if not, I can't see the point in doing it.
You should still release your script (so your work won't be lost if you get hit by a bus, or get married and have kids), but do so in a manner that isn't user friendly to non-technical people.Mission Accomplished.
I wouldn't recommend a community project much like a wiki translation project. Best case scenario you end up with several translators of varying qualities of mastery of the source and target language and you need to someone to proof/check the translations and someone to edit it all together for consistency. It's not worth the trouble to "translate" the script that way.A single translator is better than a wiki because collaborative translation projects attract weaboos like preteen beauty pageants attract pedophiles. Go through the headache of posting a script on a wiki and soon you'll have two dozen idiots in an edit war over the multifaceted minutiae of the word "oni-chan" in the Japanese language, based on their years of independent studies and their Associates of Applied Science in Hentai Tentacle Big Brother Love Tickle Monster Gundam Studies (courtesy of University of Phoenix Online, Nippon Studies Department).
Call me old-fashioned and/or elitist, but I think it's much better to find one good translator and optional editor to take care of the translation.
he'd still get emails from people with no reading comprehensionSolution: Don't include an email, and attribute the tools to someone other than yourself so they won't track you down.
I imagine that WDAM's ignore list encompasses half the site by now. PHEAR THE TOMATO!Except of course... that it's already happening, at this very moment. AIs are controlling every aspect of our lives- from national defense with the drone program to cars on Google's roadways. Are you aware that two of the most popular musicians now don't even exist? Not simply vocal changing- they flat out are nothing but AI.
Said "musicians" are laboriously programmed by hard-working and creative individuals who would probably deeply resent any implication that some "AI" was magically doing it all by itself as said "musicians" would be absolutely nothing without them. You could just as easily call Kermit the Frog a brilliant thespian. I sure as heck hope you don't think that "wishing makes it so".Like I said- fear may be pervasive in humanity, but it can eventually be overcome. The benefits of a completely incorruptible politician- one who has no interest in bribes or beret-wearing interns... could be astounding.
Y'know, if AI ever does magically appear somewhere, some coder is probably just going to assume it's a bug, shut the thing right down, and start searching for where he left out a comma. And if we get programs that can't be shut down, well, by that point our current computing paradigms will be hopelessly out of date and it's largely pointless to speculate about it – it would be like trying to explain integral calculus to a house cat.
As I said, you can't eliminate the middleman. Even a "completely incorruptible" politician could be manipulated by giving him the wrong data, because even a "completely incorruptible" politician would probably have a limited field of view – because the day a politician gets an unlimited field of view, you can be sure as heck he's not going to let someone "incorruptible" get hold of it.
The thing I always found really interesting was whether our brains were any different from a programmed machine. As off-putting as it sounds, it makes sense: we can only create things we already know.We're just cells, you know. All your thoughts are chemical signals caused by neurons in your brain moving molecules around.
Gee, I wish he’d ignore things I say like he said he would after a wordy rant in which phrases such as “worthless person”, “complete waste of time”, etc. etc. were employed a couple years ago. I may have gotten the exact words wrong, but he did say that, basically. For some reason, I have been afforded no such luxury.Well if you feel it's a violation, there's a report button right there. I may be willing to give others the benefit of a doubt, but that doesn't mean you have to.
I think the first self aware AI would be biologically based rather than circuitry. Of course crops have already been enhanced genetically and researchers have found a way to insert synthetic DNA into bacteria and have it replicated.
Many people have found out they became super-skilled or intelligent after suffering an illness or injury. Researchers found with one of them that a particular section of brain had been fused together which was the cause of this seemingly miracle. Who knows, it may be possible that one day humans will become AI.
Biological AI would also be more likely to destroy the human population than machines because they would be more likely to have the ability to replicate themselves which would make them independant of humans.
While giving a quick read to this topic, some quote came back to my mind :Of course! Your creations are your children, and children are your responsibility. If you're a good parent to a child, that child will want to be like you and make the world a better place. If you're a bad parent, that child will want to make the world wish he'd never been born.
"The only Frankenstein story that ends well is the one where its creator took responsibility for its creature." Something like that.
Honestly I think Megaman is a possible future. (Megaman X, at least) Depending on how many machines are made and how.I'm actually homeless right now, while I go to school. I'm majoring in math and computer science.
Not in the near future, of course. In the near term, the threat posed is exactly what we face now: widespread technological unemployment. Call center jobs are increasingly being threatened by automated services. People are being forced to pay out of pocket for their education (in America) even while jobs they qualify for are scarce... a dangerous combination.
A lot of you still live in mostly socialists countries. But the EU is little more than a vessel for ambitions to eliminate the socialism which gives you optimism. Sooner or later you'll face the stuff we have in the states.
BTW I'm not usually a fan of Hollywood epidemic narcissism, but I fully expect this new Depp movie to raise a lot of questions for a lot of people. Honestly, AI proponents are treated with much too much civility. Actors marched against Spirits Within.. this movie will probably spur similar action.
And I know a lot of you have cushy programmer jobs... would be a cryin' shame if someone created an AI that could program as good as you.
First they came for the assembly line workers, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not an assembly line worker.
Then they came for the drivers, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a driver.
Then they came for the service workers, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a service worker.
Then they came for me, a software engineer--and there was no one left to speak for me.
OH JESUS I FAILED, I FAILED ON AN ARGUMENT ON THE INTERNET! WOE IS ME, THIS MAN KNOW MORE ABOUT AN INCREDIBLY OBSCURE TOPIC THAN ME!Popular among weaboos, maybe. Unless you're referring to the theory that Justin Bieber is actually an android.Just because you yourself dislike something is a rather arrogant and limited statement. Furthermore, only one of the individuals I mentioned has an origin in Japan. You fail again.
You're assuming that we'll discover strong AI shortly after we discover or invent weak AI (which is almost what we have now, though the horizon/definition of "AI" keeps moving just beyond what currently exists for some reason). My argument is that during the 20 to 40 years that we have only weak AI, the billionaires who control thatIt doesn't matter if it's incorruptible or not, if it's owned by billionaires who program it to do what is in their best interests then it is by definition corrupt.Again, you've missed the point entirely. By the time AI has evolved to that extent, whatever human might have been involved or not involved in its core conceptual programming will have become irrelevant.
Well maybe you should explain your point more clearly. The burden of communication falls on the person who has something to say. If you can't get your point across, then either:People not using Tomatos is a tragedy for lovers of Italian food, but this isn't a conversation on gastronomy.And once again you've completely missed the point to such an extent that I don't believe you're doing it unintentionally.
And with that, I'm done here with this conversation. Once the peanut gallery rolls in, tossing forward straw men, intentionally missing points and generally refusing to use their brain, that's where I exit.Running away from anyone who disagrees with you won't make you a better communicator. Throwing fits in public will not engender good will towards you. But oh, don't worry, you're so superior to all of us, but we're just too stupid to understand it and show you the unconditional respect and admiration you deserve.
I'll be putting you on ignore now.I'm pretty sure that telling someone you're ignoring them is both trolling and a TOS violation. Care to edit that? I'll delete this snippet if you do.
Thanks for ruining a perfectly good conversation.It takes two people to communicate. Or not, in this case. Disregard your failures at your own risk.
So, I've some free time and I decided to spend it putting my hands on TileMolester.I could use these two things. Source please?
-Internal palettes can be added using hexadecimal addresses.
-Added an internal palette shifter and the palette address on the status bar

Remember that we used to fear the tomato.People not using Tomatos is a tragedy for lovers of Italian food, but this isn't a conversation on gastronomy.
And the conspiracy theories fly!You have no idea what you're talking about.
Gosh, I didn't know y'all were that paranoid.
