a lot of people claim video games cause violence. imo they do.
a lot of the arguments try to prove that because the majority of video game players aren't shooters isn't valid in my opinion, because, in tjis situation, even if 99.99% of gamers with access to a gun don't have a mads shooting, the 0.01% is enough.
add in a loneliness, a bad childhood, mental health issues, and being in a bad place at the time, i think it's possible.
now don't get me wrong - i don't believe video games should be banned or something, i'm just saying i believe it's feasible that video games could be a contributing factor in a mass shooter's choice to do unspeakable actions.
do you guys think i'm being naive or logical ?32
dates are just an index of time
practicing is just offsetting your initial, natural ability in a positive direction
do you guys ever just think of things in an abstract sense?
what are other examples?21
a boy in my school died yesterday. he was hit by a car when he fell off his bike. he had mild autism, and smiled at everyone possible he met. god made the happiest boy i've ever called my friend.
some background - my school is full of fake people. what's fake, you ask? it's kind of like when people decided to not be down-to-earth/genuine so they can be popular. ex - a person acts like they're a friend with someone and uses them to get into a party, etc.
of course, people on instagram at my school all sent their "condolences," but there's people who are so fucking disrespectful. people who post on their story stuff like "I'll miss you [his name]❤️😇🙏" or "rest easy bro🙏"
it's bullshit. all fucking bullshit. some of them wrote a heartfelt message to a friend they're never going to see again - a friend that brought them joy and comfort and a smile. i like that.
and some people decide to be fake. i personally don't like it, but it's their life. but it's crossing a fucking line when people say things about how they'll miss a person they never knew, so they can fit in. god this boy was the best thing that ever happened to are school and his happiness one of the few reason i got out of bed every day. i'm so fucking tired of these people.
he doesn't deserve this.10
can we all take a moment to appreciate the developers of flutter. they're smart, and they took the time to make flutter the *right* way.
they used an easy to learn language that's ideal for mobile development, which means hot reload/restart is possible (because dart supports aot and jit compilation)
the way it's designed is beautiful. everything is a widget, and it's easy to customize them via named parameters.
the community is great. it's not large, but it's supportive, with two active subreddits. yesterday i asked a question on r/flutterdev, and a member of the flutter team at google answered the question with a comprehensive answer.
flutter is very consistent across platforms. if it works on android or ios, you can bet it'll work on the other just as well, with the exception of platform-specific code.
it is VERY performant. unless you write a major bottleneck, 60fps is easy to achieve.
animations are EASY. define a tween and animation controller and then write a callback function. not to mention it's straightforward, and complex/combined animations are easy, too.
you can get almost direct access to the canvas, should you need it, with custompainter.
oh my god, this is revolutionary in the programming world. development is quicker than it is with native android alone, and for people who have no access to a mac, like me, i can develop for ios and compile via code magic. if you haven't checked it out and you develop for mobile, check it out.
oh yeah, did i mention it's not just mobile. hummingbird - flutter compiled to web - is already in experimental public betas, and will likely be released by the end of the year. there's also experimental desktop support, which is amazing, and much better than electron. not to mention flutter is the future, as it will be the primary way to make apps on fuchsia os.13
i'm starting a project where i will have a large amount audio clips, anywhere from a few seconds to about an hour long, and i need to store them based on which user created them and what group they are created in (so they will be sorted based on two integers). i'll need to concatenate and/or merge the audio files frequently, and i may need to filter which audio i use based on users and time created.
how should i store the audio? i'm pretty sure a database is the best option, but should i consider using the file system? if i shant, should i use mysql or postgres? i know postgres has more types and supports complex queries.
does anyone have experience who can help?8
laptop suggestions please:
- 13-14 inch screen
- min 8 gb ram (preferably 16)
- 128 gb storage
- i5 or i7
- 1200 x 800 resolution
- can run linux (no driver issues)
- can run flutter, android studio, and emulator
- $500 or less6
so many great fucking small or niche languages are ruined by shitty/odd syntaxes
sorry, but if you use the | character for function arguments, i'm not touching your language
for FUCKS sake5
i submitted my first app to the app store yesterday. i built it with flutter, and it's already on the play store.
for some reason - i probably created the app wrong - the app store connect/portal needed screenshots of my app running on an ipad pro. now i don't have an ipad pro, and i can't use an emulator because i don't have a mac for that matter (i have been using codemagic.io for builds). i called friends - they don't have any ipads.
what did i do?
i turned my phone sideways and scaled it to the ipad pro resolution.
it is currently "in review"
🙏let's hope this works7
i want to create a service that periodically logs in to a 3rd party service to check if anything has changed in their account, then send a message via firebase to notify the user who's account has been changed.
can you recommend any program/hosting/server that would be ideal for this?
i prefer dart (because i built the frontend in flutter, but i'd use most any language).
i'd prefer not to pay for a dedicated server because of price, so if i could just create processes that run every hour or so, that would be ideal.3
would you guys like to see a blogging network?
- be similar to youtube/medium in many aspects
- posts will be written in markdown
- related posts will also show up
- you can tag posts
- posts can be made private or link-only
- essentially just a privacy respecting, simple blogging network, where people can tell stories, write an article, etc
- i intend to make this somewhat social, eg. you can share your profile link with friends, follow people, etc4
making a grades viewer app, name suggestions please?
(it will also have reminders for homework, gpa calculator, etc)15
what would you guys think of a user-controlled news app? like people would posts stories, and users would control what content would be featured in their respective categories. then you would have a feed of all the categories you follow. story integrity will be controlled by users approval and by corroboration.
do you guys think an alternative to the web would be a cool idea?
like an entire redesign of the protocols, languages, security, etc14
just got an email from medium with my daily stories, and the second story had someone's devRant profile picture as the image for the story! good job @dfox, you are really making an impact!!! https://link.medium.com/jQptPbA2nU4
