Post Re: ROBOTC for Mindstorms 1.56 Alpha
hi Xander,
I always have been curious about the meaning of the numbers behind the "1."
Now I think I got it:
it's the number of new bugs included in this version! :D

Ford,

Haha, well you know with every new bug fix, 2 new bugs pop up. It's the nature of software design. Many bugs were fixed though, including a lot of nasty struct/array stuff. The best part of all is that ubytes are now truly unsigned and will convert to signed ints properly :)

Also remember this is an alpha release, so it's designed to blow up when you least expect it. So far I haven't come across any show stoppers.

Regards,
Xander

I'll try and have something by end of weekend... If not, monday for sure.

We like to space out releases by a specific formula:
((Ford's Trolling Post) + (Ford's off-topic replies) - (Xander's useful posts) )* New Version Number = Release distance in days
:D

Ah but you forget about the most important rule of forum etiquette: don't feed the trolls!

Post Re: ROBOTC for Mindstorms 1.56 Alpha
ah, so let's try:
((FTP+FOR)-(XUP))*VNR
~=((10+1)-10)*1.54=
=1*1.54
=1.54
~=2

2 days,
that's a time space we may be able to live with. :bigthumb:

It's not nice to say things like that about meeeeeeeeeehh. That was a baaaaaaaaaahd joke.

Here's a better goat joke:
Quote:
The young couple invited their elderly pastor for Sunday dinner. While they were in the blacklisted_site preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having.

"Goat," the little boy replied.

"Goat?" replied the startled man of the cloth, "Are you sure about that?"

"Yep," said the youngster. "I heard Dad say to Mom, 'Today is just as good as any to have the old goat for dinner.'


Regards,
Xander
