I forgot that you can do loops in MIPS and also implement case/switches as loops. I'm not very good at things.

wrt Steam, I really see Valve as being important to the future of PCs. If PCs are viewed as one a major game platform -- not just in terms of playing them, but in terms of a really low entry hurdle to start making games, since, uh... there's seriously nothing stopping you from making PC games. There is no bar for entry besides your own knowledge -- then they're never going to die.

If a machine-level instruction set didn't have the ability to perform "loops", you'd have massively shortened sessions on your 'puter :-D

It's more like I was making weird branch-based case/switch things that had sort of looping functionality instead of just... making a loop.

Haps:

My band, Pool of Thorns, had an invigorating day in the studio today.  We're pretty excited about the new recordings we're doing, updating the demo, eventually doing an album, hopefully getting one of our new 'n improved recordings on the radio...

What, I still use a desktop.

...of course, it runs Linux.

Hey Kevadu, any recommendations for an intro to Linux? Planning on installing it on an older laptop to give it some life (and to get away from XP) , but also to tinker around with it since I've never played with Linux before. From what I've read, I'm told to stay away from Arch (though if you can figure out Arch, you can more or less figure anything out) but I wouldn't mind learning Linux via CLI as opposed to GUI.

I figure learning how it works via CLI then moving to GUI would be better/more satisfying.

Where should I start?

Debian is where you should start and end.  I don't see the point of other distros ;)

Hrmm... that's probably why the most popular, non-proprietary Linux distro available in the core AMIs for an Amazon Web Services (AWS) deployment is Ubuntu. Must also be why Ubuntu has nailed down LTS versions (Long-Term Release) increasing its corporate adoption rate like crazy. And, if for no other reason, that must be why Ubuntu uses the same package management system as Debian.

I see ;P I guess Linux is for people who don't know how to use Unix

That is SUPER exciting man! Congrats.

Be sure to PM me (if it isn't too much trouble) and let me know when/if I could procure any recordings you want in circulation to play routinely in the tattoo shop! Nothing better then tattooing to something rocking when you KNOW one of the artists responsible for the tunes!

I tip my hat to anyone who plugs away at a passion... you've been at the music for quite awhile sir, and as such have my respect.

Gonna find some toothpicks and glue and do stuff with the toothpicks and glue.

or lose the glue (and your sanity)

Already did both :D

Eyelids Mesh...eyelids...toothpicks and glue

I can't get eyelids at Kroger though. Or Michael's for that matter, not that I live near one.

Also man that feel when you give someone a handshake and the return with a buttpat. Don't overstep, son. That's oversteppin'.

Listening to Palace Music - Lost Blues and Other Songs. This album reminds me of the parts of college I liked -- sitting in my dorm in the un-airconditioned heat in late August when everything smelled like carpet and leaves.

This is something that's never going to happen again.
