Color discrimination is racism. Be it skin color or passport color.


I no longer look at the questions in stackoverflow. It is more and more becoming a task of finding duplicates of questions, rather than contributing to a good question.


I am a PhD student currently working on robotic skins, both their firmware and their real-time driver/software. My bachelors had been in Software Engineering.

I am implementing a port of C's stdio to the Linux kernel, called kio. I'm also implementing a unified interface to different real-time subsystems, called urt.

I am also writing a compiler that reads a language derived from markdown and generates software documentation. I strongly believe DoxyGen and the like use a very bad method (documentation mixed with code). Check out the DocThis! compiler if you are interested (it works, but I still have a lot of features in mind to add to it). Here is a sample output.

The most ridiculous way of communicating this to the player. The most ridiculous way of actually doing something in the game in the first place.

@pixel, I had tried with many types of enemies. The fact that by the end of the (single player) game, I couldn't get a single hit point from life-leech is a bit too suspicious. Most probably, Decency is right in saying that life-steal only works with melee weapons.

@decency, I haven't played with the other characters. You may be right.

@Ramhound One was to open the character page, hit multiple targets, multiple times and see that my life doesn't increase. I did that many times. Another thing I did many times was to note my health, hit many targets without taking a hit and checking my life again, which was unchanged.

@decency, yes I had updated to 1.09b which is the latest patch.
