Excess of Grok / Re: #1 LSU vs #2 Bama
November 07, 2011, 02:05 PM
I can certainly see it the way you did, only I thought he had possession while falling, and still had possession as he hit the ground.  At that moment, possession seemed to transfer to the DB.  Only after he hit the ground.  So if that really was the case (which is arguable), the ground cannot cause the fumble which allowed the DB to take possession.  He would've been down by contact as soon as hit butt touched the turf.

Boring game?  We only get a regular-season 1v2 every 5 or 10 years.  I guess I love a good defensive battle too, and that one was pretty fun to watch.

Also, I love the SEC refs for not calling impertinent holding every few minutes, like they do in the ACC.
Excess of Grok / #1 LSU vs #2 Bama

LSU 9, Bama 6 in 1OT.  Can't ask for a better 1v2 match.

The 4th quarter LSU interception of Alabama down on the 1-yard line was really interesting.  I thought the Tide receiver had the ball in his possession until he hit the ground, at which point it skittered over into the LSU db's possession and was ruled an interception.  On multiple replays, I don't see anything to change my opinion.
Are people really arguing about whose is bigger on the internet?

Basically I've talked to grok about organizing vL and getting everyone together that wants to be on diablo 3 and any other games.  This includes recruiting some new members which will be done the same way people need to be voted on by the active members.

I need to talk to Grok about pointing irc.valhallalegends.com to the same ip and then from there hopefully we get more vL.

Get me the IP you need an A record for, I'll have it added.

Depending on how Diablo III is set up, you should see more of me around [vL] things.  WoW was rather fragmented and until their realid, not very socially connected.  There are a few of us playing on the same server still, but only a few.

Grokkers @ Ysera-US, and we're looking for a couple stupidly good players, especially a non-pally tank.
Sun/Mon/Tue, 8:00pm-11:30pm.  Come talk to me.
AI bots that try to up their post count on forums?
There are a couple questions here.  In comments and after the code sample.

            class TS { public int lossyVal = 0; }
            TS ts = new TS();
            ts.lossyVal = 555;                 // we will attempt to lose this data via conversions
            Object tt = new object();
            // implicit cast
            tt = ts;
            Console.WriteLine("ts is type {0}", ts.GetType().ToString());
            Console.WriteLine("tt is type {0}", tt.GetType().ToString());
            // at this point, both tt and ts are varibles of type TS, so  ...
            ts = tt;    // why does compile fail without explicit cast?
            // is it because compiler cannot figure out what happened on "tt = ts" line?
            // I can buy that, but what about ..
            // cast ts to object, attempt to lose the lossyVal
            tt = (object) ts;
            Console.WriteLine("ts is type {0}", ts.GetType().ToString());
            Console.WriteLine("tt is type {0}", tt.GetType().ToString());
            // why is tt not demoted to System.Object, and lose the extra data??
            // tt should be a type that doesnt have a member called lossyVal, but ..
            Console.WriteLine("guess what .. ({0})", ((TS)tt).lossyVal);

Why did lossyVal not get clobbered when converting to Object?

This explains much.

Keep up the good works.

Sometimes you can approach insane from a different direction.

If you were a famous person, this would get printed and catch on.

Agree.  Might also check out the Manning publishers book "jQuery in Action".

Really Warehouse?  Saw the pilot, or at least the first 30 minute of it.  Was so horrible I have not been back.

Currently only have two shows set to record, at various times of the day.

Stargate SG-1,

End up watching them about1am to 3am before falling asleep.
