DotA 2!

I know it has been ages since I posted! So here is a game I'm looking forward to.
This is a link to the up coming game DotA 2, it looks really amazing! Can't wait till it is officially released.
"From now until the release of the game next year, this will be a place where you can get information on our progress as we build the game.
But first some of you might be thinking, “What is Dota 2?” Dota began as a user-made modification for Warcraft 3 and has grown into one of the most played online games in the world. Following in the tradition of Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat, Team Fortress, Portal, and Alien Swarm, Dota 2 is the result of Valve hiring the community developers who built the mod and giving them the chance to finally build a full product out of their idea with the help of a professional team of developers and artists at Valve."

Adsense biggest cheque

Wow this guy got a good payday from google ...$132,994.97

"This was the bigest paper check I have ever recieved. It was way back in August of 2005. 100% of this income was earned with organic seo. I had not heard of search engine arbitrage at the time and did not buy traffic from MSN Yahoo or Google itself. I did that about 1.5 years later ;)"

Please help me followers make this type of money :D ... on a side note what would you first spend this on, tell me in the comments!

Heroes of Newerth

I first started playing Heros of Newerth while it was in beta. After being a die hard DOTA fan it was hard to make the transition.However after playing my first game I was hooked. The graphics, extra interface add-ons were a lot more advanced than the Warcraft 3 engine DOTA was made on.

I pre-purchased the game and got my stats up high, then suddenly got sick of it. I have only just recently started playing again and it has a whole lot of new features, match making is the stand out change for me. It finds people of same caliber skills as yourself or group and matched you against them.

Overall HoN has made some great changes since I last played and will be playing a bit more for weeks to come.

If you play HoN leave your username in the comments and I will be sure to add you for a game some time! Also comment on your favourite character, mine would have to MageBane :D.

Fortnightly Contest #1 Results

And the winner is .... drum roll please!

Unfortunately nobody won :(

Will make the next one a definite winner!

Gmail's "unsend" option

Use Gmail as an email client? Did you know you can unsend email? If you said "yes" then "no" then read on!

Gmail can hold back delivering your emails for some seconds after you have clicked "send". This can be helpful if you:

  1. Attached the wrong attachment
  2. Spelling mistakes
  3. Wrong recipient
To take back an email you didn't want sent:
  1. Go to the settings link in Gmail
  2. Go to the labs tab
  3. Make sure Enable is selected for undo send (near bottom of page)
  4. click save changes
You have about 5 seconds to take back the email

To change the length of time you have to unsend:
  1. Go to the settings link in Gmail
  2. Pick your desired time under the undo send row
  3. Click save changes
A great little function to take back an embarrassing mistake.

Random Number Generator C#

Ok so it took about 5 minutes to make the generator so will make the tutorial now. Download my project  from HERE, other wise follow the instructions.

First things first you will need Visual Studio if you already haven't got it. I found an express edition of you want to trial it from HERE choose your language and download (I used C# for the language, you can choose anyone you like but syntax may be different).

Once you have everything installed, open up Visual Studio, and start a new project by going upto file / new project .. you will then get a screen like this.

Select a "Windows Forms Application" name your project and click OK.

Go ahead and use the toolbox to put a Text box, button, and label (optional) onto the form. Add a little colour if you like, *I know mine is an eyesore* but I don't care :P. It should now look something like this.

Double click the button, this will take you to the "Button click handler" where you code what you want to happen when the button is clicked.

Inside the button1_Click's curly brackets, (these things {  }), start to type "Random" visual studio will drop down a box of what it thinks you are wanting to type, this will automatically complete what you want to type. I have written out all the code below with comments to read of what is happening. the "//" is commented line which isn't included in the code.

I will go through it line by line, to people unaware of the basics of coding you may struggle to wrap your head around what is being done, I am not very good at explaining stuff :P so you might have to google search the blue prints of coding. 

Random RandNum = new Random(); VS has built in "static classes" which are very helpful in this situation, here I am creating a new instance of this class to be used in the project.

String NewNumber; Creating a string variable to put the random number we are going to make inside it.

NewNumber = Convert.ToString(RandNum.Next(1000) + 1); This is a sloppy way of doing it but it works and is easy to follow. This will create a new random number no bigger than "1000" as we have told it. The +1 is because this is 0 based which means if we were to count to 5 it would be 0,1,2,3,4, the +1 allows it to be the real number. We have to "Convert.ToString" so it can be put into the String variable we created, at the moment it is an Integer and the 2 are not able to be compared unless converted.

TextBox.Text = NewNumber; Make the text inside the textbox = the random number.

You can now proceed to run your project and see what you get.

Here is the final outcome: (Changed colour for non eye hurtness :))

Done! This was a bit of a rush job so any questions are more than welcome in the comments below.

Catch up / Comic of the day 14

So I have been kind of slack lately with my posts. Soon I will post up a basic tutorial on how to make your own random number generator. It is really easy that it won't be long at all, but are great if you want to use it for a contest like the one I am having at the moment.

So staying on topic for todays comic of the day: 

(I get this all the time :P)

The prize is a selection out of the following:

(If in the event no one had chosen the number I get, It will roll over to the next contest. Kind of like lotto :))

Should I put down the cat?

So me and my partner have this cat, it's about 11 years old, it has been pissing inside now for a while (which is stinking out the place) even if he has been outside the whole day, then comes inside JUST TO PISS. He gets up on the bench and eats food, no matter how many times to tell it to get off. Plus he attacked me today when I tried to get him outside which has lead me to make this poll :P. I love animals and feel it would be cruel to put him down, but kind of at the point where it seems necessary, he has had a good life.

So vote please and leave a comment.

Hangover Cures

As I sit here writing this post with a pounding headache and dry mouth feeling sorry for you, I shall post the top 10 hangover cures I found that actually work.

  1. Water - Whether it's while your drinking, before you go to bed, when you wake up, just drink it.
  2. Sports drink - Powerade, Gatorade, whatever your poison get it down yah, will restore electrolytes.
  3. Pain killers - Wouldn't really recommend them as mixing with alcohol isn't so good for your liver, but they work.
  4. Vitamins - Low levels of B-6 and B-12 can intensify a hangover, but don't take the all the time.
  5. Berocca - Have that b for that b b bounce, revitalize yourself.
  6. Prickly Pear - Gets rid of Nausea, dry mouth, loss of appetite,  but won't kill the headache.
  7. Tripe soup - would not recommend this one.
  8. Rosiglitazone - know any diabetics? They might have some of these pills lying round, boosts glucose levels.
  9. Alchohol - Start drinking again, if you can't beat it join it.
  10. Open - Leaving 10 open for suggestions in the comments :), off to buy me a blue Powerade!!

Lucid Dreaming

For about the last month or so I have been training myself to lucid dream. What is lucid dreaming you may ask?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
lucid dream, in simplest terms, is a dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming. The term was coined by the Dutch psychiatrist and writer Frederik van Eeden (1860–1932).[1]
A lucid dream can begin in one of two ways. A dream-initiated lucid dream (DILD) starts as a normal dream, and the dreamer eventually concludes it is a dream, while a wake-initiated lucid dream (WILD) occurs when the dreamer goes from a normal waking state directly into a dream state, with no apparent lapse in consciousness.
Lucid dreaming has been researched scientifically, and its existence is well established.[2][3]
Scientists such as Stephen LaBerge and Allan Hobson, with his neurophysiological approach to dream research, have helped to push forward the understanding of lucid dreaming into a less speculative realm.

Here is the link for more info

So just the other night I experienced my first lucid dream, and last night my second. The second one was better as I had more control over it. I did a reality check which told my brain I was dreaming, I then went on to start flying (which felt awesome) but soon woke up. There is a lot to learn about keeping the dream alive etc. which I can now work on since I have experienced this.

Here's a video from discovery channel, explains a bit, and how Einstein etc could have used these techniques to invent what they did.

If you want to give it a go do a lot of research here are some sites you should definitely look at: - A very informative forum who are great at giving advise. - A school of knowledge on how to lucid dream

Nathan Mccullum ripped off, bad umpiring.

Watching the black caps take on Sri-Lanka last night, which we lost unfortunately. Nathan Mccullum had a fantastic caught and bowled. The call goes to the t.v umpire who calls it not out. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Which makes me bring up the discussion of useless umpires ruining a game of cricket.

See the catch for yourself and comment on catch or not?
