I code for fun, mostly self taught, both high and low level. Also self taught in various aspects of information security. Love the puzzles.

comment Are VATS aiming bugs in Fallout:New Vegas really that preventive?
You know those percentages that VATS shows you when stunning, that's your hit change of hitting that specific aim target. It is effects by range, angle, weapon, weapon condition, skill in weapon class... Now for headshots, you'll rarely get that above a 30% hit chance and the chance is capped at 95%, so there is always a chance to miss.

comment Increasing inventory in Torchlight 2
If you send pet to town, then portal there you will meet pet in town and get pet and money instantly, there is also more than one town in torchlight 2 so maximum pet travel time is 2 minutes.

Finally, your pet has an inventory and can be sent to town to sell stuff. So all that not enchanted or basic enchantment etc, just give to pet and send off to sale.

comment Use the bandage automatically when I got shot?
I would note that while bandaging you can't shoot too, so sometimes it's better not to bandage immediately.

comment Can I force a quest objective to be complete with a console command?
I believe you don't need leading zeros (at least you don't in oblivion/skyrim) and the scripting engines are all based on each other.

comment Is there a batch script to download the latest Craftbukkit Build?
dev builds are generated every night (though July the 4th seems missing, possibly it didn't successfully build), there is no guarantee it'll even run let alone the plugins will work (dl.bukkit.org/latest-dev/craftbukkit-dev.jar). These are then promote these to beta for testing when the feel like it, things are still likely to be broken, but it'll at least run (dl.bukkit.org/latest-beta/craftbukkit.jar). Finally after enough testing they promote these to recommended, for production servers this is recommended (dl.bukkit.org/latest-tb/craftbukkit.jar)

you'll need an application to do the actual download, like curl/wget on 'nix systems. and it should probably be on serverfault.
