I was battered. Honestly, I was not physically harmed. But harm isn't in that definition. Consent is. Touch is. And I was touched without my consent. Here's what happened: My husband and I purchased a pre-owned car from a dealership near my dentist. We did the paperwork for the purchase at...
It's a quarter after something, depending on your time zone. I've been doing a storm of writing but for my class in creative writing and not for here. It's just not suitable. So far I have: An introduction: This is supposed to be fresh and so I started with a recipe for kluski and milk and...
I've written a couple PMs now about "How does it feel to win the first WF Grand Invitational Poetry Challenge?" I figure I can maybe try to write about it here and get it sorted. First, the memory I'm going to carry with me is that poems I voted for in the People's Choice were award-winners...
Not only is the project done, it is turned in. Now, it just has to be graded. Okay, breaking this down: 12 reports -- because I started the first week, so I'll give me 100 points Time log -- we were supposed to log 300 hours. I logged 168. That's .56 of the requisite or 28 points. Project...
The software project is done. Anyone want a throw-back, two-deck solitaire game they don't know how to play? (It does have a help screen.) It runs under Windows. By "throw-back" I mean it looks like a DOS game or a Unix command shell game. If you're interested, PM me and I'll PM you the...
So, I don't get to graduate after all. Course A could not be subbed for Course B. Course C could, but was being subbed for Course D. Course B is offered only in the spring semester. It was recommended I sub Course C for Course B. So now I get to take Course D, which will be offered in the...
It plays! My solitaire game actually plays. It doesn't do everything a full-blown game should do--if you press the wrong key it just ignores you. Help is not displayed when you type "?" and there is no victory screen when you win. That is okay. Those things are frills. For right now, I'm...
The cavalry didn't exactly arrive, but tt turns out all I needed was a quiver of arrows. By replacing the foo. expressions with foo-> I got it working. Now my game can do all of these (new stuff in red:) make a new deck (which is really a double deck) shuffle that double deck show the deck...
Dealing cards is tough. Especially when you're me, trying to do it in C++ with a limited grasp of vectors and what happens when you stack them. (A pile is a vector of cards, a tableau is a vector of piles.) Anyway, I'm stalled until the cavalry arrives. Dunno when that will be because I'm not...
So, my card game can now do the following: make a new deck (which is really a double deck) shuffle that double deck show the deck (shuffled or un) display a card (I was gonna say "draw" but that's not what people would think I meant) display a place where there would be a card if there were one...
It's Tuesday. So I took my troubles to class (the project is mandatory but attendance is optional). After loading all my goodies onto the classroom PC, I showed the instructor the errors and he suggested I simplify my expression. So I separated the parts of what I was doing (or trying to do)...
So today I worked on my project. I discovered that I don't know enough about the STL to use vectors effectively and so my programming is on hold till Tuesday ... class is optional, but it's where you go when you're stuck. Of course, this took multiple hours -- realizations take a fraction of a...
