I read it the same way, but didn't wonder - I just said to myself: "Oh, so it is implemented in C. Fair enough."
I've been working among Python programmers for too long. I never saw any other group of programmers so eager to tout their implementation language. Fortran programmers never named their applications "forSomething", Pascal programmers didn't call them "pasMyApp" or Cobol programmers "cobSolution". Well, occasionally it might happen, but for 99,9% of the solutions, the application name was some indication of the problem it solved or some product marketing name - not the name of the implementation tool. But Python programmers do that. To such a degree that I have come into the habit of stripping off any prefix that matches a common programming language name.
Yesterday I had to fight Hammerlocked!
(Eden-6 main mission boss fight)
What an epic fight and epic bugger!
First you bring down his humongous armour and health down (takes a while, was running out of rifle ammo)...
And then he was almost down...
And then he turned into raging warden, regenerating his full health!
What the heck?!
And then he was almost down....
And then he did it again, turning into a super raging warden, and regenerating his full health!
And then he was almost down....
And then he did it again! Turning into mega raging warden, regenerating his full health!
And then he was almost down.... please for good...
But nope, he does it again, turned into an ultimate warden! regenerating his full health!
Alright, ultimate, gunning him down...
And then he does it yet again, turning into godly warden, regenerating his full health!
And then, should be good, right?
Yeah! The warden is finally dead!
Special thanks to my trusty old Torque (rocket) gun, 140 damage a shot! 700 ammos!
The Atari 2600 is considered archaeological material now. This was an very interesting read. They supposedly found a never before documented algorithm inside the dissassembled ROM. They tracked down the engineering team and this is what was said:
The basic maze generating routine had been partially written by a stoner who had left. I contacted him to try and understand what the maze generating algorithm did. He told me it came upon him when he was drunk and whacked out of his brain, he coded it up in assembly overnight before he passed out, but now could not for the life of him remember how the algorithm worked.
I took a look (The algorithm is at the bottom of the paper) and it looks very similar to a simple Moore[^] or von Neumann[^] neighborhood.
As someone who (still) works with WinForms, I was interested to read:
The Windows Forms designer is still in preview, and available as a separate download. It will be added to Visual Studio as part of a later release. The designer currently includes support for the most commonly used controls and low-level functionality. We’ll keep improving the designer with monthly updates. We don’t recommend porting your Windows Forms applications to .NET Core just yet, particularly if you rely on the designer. Please do experiment with the designer preview, and give us feedback.
You can also create and build desktop applications from the command line using the .NET CLI.
