2  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Old Video Games on: 2012-09-21 01:25:48
I still shamelessly play Mega Man 2 at least once a year to this day. There are few games that I feel anywhere close enough to happy with that are 20+ years old to still play once in a while.

Agreed that many of the old games were just awesome for their time, but that they don't stand up to today's games. Even if many of today's games aren't much better in terms of game mechanics, many of the control mechanisms alone have evolved to the point where trying to play an old game can feel very clunky.
3  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Build your own Ouya? on: 2012-09-21 01:22:58
I'd be up for building my own Ouya, but only if the software/OS was open source so that I could get whatever version of an Android store they're going to provide (wouldn't want to be on a platform that didn't have games built specifically for it), and there was a compatible gamepad that worked out of the box. Anything less and it'll be a better use of time/money to just buy the Ouya outright, assuming they deliver on releasing it to market.

I am working on an emulation box based on RPi. Many people have successfully got the software running on it, but they all seem to be "build it yourself" setups without a lot of instructions or a distribution model. I'd really like to build a stock image with the emulators pre-installed (no ROMs though, of course), that provided a "turn on and play" experience. I'm fairly close to that already, but need to work out some performance problems. Already found a supplier of replica NES controllers - yes, the ergonomic nightmare models.   Smiley
4  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Discussion board software experiment on: 2012-09-20 20:47:01
It's been years since I've been back here, and to think...I'm about to post something in the miscellaneous section. -1 for contribution to the community.

I'm working on a discussion board experiment, a piece of software that structures discussion threads differently than your typical bulletin board app. I came to this experiment because I've recently become a moderator for an online group (not this one, obviously) and have become quite interested in how the structure of conversations (both written and in person) affect the way we understand and follow them. As part of that experiment I'm collecting examples of the various types of flow in a conversation.

What I need from the community are examples of threads in this forum that (in your own opinion) qualify as examples of any/all of the following:
  • Threads that contain especially GREAT writing or insight, and represent the best of what the community produces
  • Threads that started on one topic and moved to a completely different topic at some point
  • Threads that have lots of references to outside resources (links to other sites, etc.)
  • Threads that contain a lot of blockquotes where one reply quotes one or more previous replies
  • Threads that contain a lot of, "Me too - I have this question/problem/issue" sorts of posts that don't result in any new value being added to the thread
  • Threads that contain a large number of "bump" posts to keep them in the "recent" list
  • Threads that "fracture" - starting with one topic, but quickly fracture into tons of completely related, but possible directions. Debugging discussions where the correct solution is one of `n` possible solutions are good examples of this.
All I'm looking for in replies is a label and a link. For example:

Really great discussion: http://[link to thread]

Thanks to anyone who chooses to participate!
