Last time around, I jumped at the opportunity to get the Humble Indie Bundle. This time, I took a moment to consider what I was getting. And then I remembered: this isn't about getting.
I have apparently hit the ceiling. I have, for the past few years, been slowly working on a custom framework off of which to build my sites. Something that jived with how I like to work. Something that would feel natural to me. It turns out all that work just came crashing down.
I want the past two hours of my life back. Real quick, it turns out that in AS3, fscommand("allowscale", "false") messes with the
Stage.scaleMode = StageScaleMode.NO_SCALE;
I just realized how similar webcomics and the Mameshiba brand are. It came to me as I noticed that Octopus Pie is under a CC (By-NC-SA) license. I wondered how Meredith Gran made any money off of the comic, or how any webcomic artist made money. And then I realized that they're all Mameshibas.
I recently noticed that Adobe has updated its Flex SDK to version 4. Great, right? Turns out, we lost some features that I rather enjoyed. Like SVG embedding.
I own a netbook, and have had it for about nine months now. I figured it was time to give my impressions of it, and maybe a little explanation of what I do on it, and how.
I don't think this trick is all that special, but I've been told I should put it on the internets. ActionScript does not allow for private constructor functions, thereby preventing a pure implementation of the Singleton pattern. This is my way around it:
It turns out when you typecast an object as the interface it implements, you lose the fact that it's an object. What up, team ActionScript?
I know this trick is well documented already, but I figure the more it's out there, the easier it is to find.
This is seriously no way to run a business.
