General Talk / Happy Holidays!
« on: December 25, 2010, 08:44:59 pm »
I think at this point I need to say something profound.

It surely has been a ride ever since I started hosting. And I perceive even more challenges in the coming years.
It is sites like this that I host that drive me to put as much free effort I can into making the service even better and keep pushing for the core values of why I started Datanethost. Hopefully one day, together, we can create a hosting platform that out performs Google's in usability, services, and last but most important support. Keep up the posting, and don't be a stranger to this forum or to me. I have an open door policy. And if you think I am ignoring you, I probably just missed your message keep contacting me until I respond.

Merry Christmas (or Happy Holidays) and Happy New Year. May next year bring even more and better projects.

Flashdrive or floppy? I don't think it is CD compatible.


It is, you can also burn it to a DVD if you really want to.

ISO image for creating bootable CD (Windows - zip)
ISO image for creating bootable CD (Linux - gzip)
Floppy disk package (installable from Windows)
Floppy disk package SMP (experimental, installable from Windows)
USB key image (Only installable from Linux)
Linux source and binary package

It looks like you can run it from Windows, but I would really recommend you boot from it.

Well, your processor is "okay"... [http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=Pentium+Dual-Core+T4300+%40+2.10GHz]
However, test your memory. Jusyt because it is not all being used, does not mean it is still good. In my case, I have 1 bit go wrong in my 2 gig stick and I have to replace it. It was causing my programs to crash and W7 to show BSOD's. You need to run a memory test. memtest86 has a thumbstick bootable version you can use. Boot from your flash drive and use it. (Or floopy if you have one).
"This version of file is not compatible with the windows you are running"

Your not supposed to run it from Windows?
You boot from it?

« on: December 11, 2010, 06:27:26 pm »
I called my ISP. According to them, they are not blocking anything and they can ping me just fine. I have no idea how this is even possible considering I am unable to even ping myself without using a loopback.


EDIT:
So I've managed to ping myself now. But strangely, tracert only reports 1 hop. I have no idea whats going on tbh. I'll finish up this program and release both the server and client source code. Maybe someone else could host it or something similar. I don't see any other way of making this work using my connection.

You can't ping your own external address because most (residential) routers don't know how to handle that. Are you sure you forwarded the port on your router? Also, you may need to enable ICMP on the router.
You wouldn't happen to own a Netgear router? Those seem like they hired some guy in India to write the firmware and published it without actually testing the features.
I've properly forwarded the port. IT was working back when I was developing Blockaworld. It suddenly stopped working just recently. Yes I own a netgear, and I'll check into the ICMP when I get back from work later.
Yeah, my past experiences with Netgears have not been good. At one point on a netgear I used to own, I would enter a port forwarding rule, it wouldn't show up and if I tried to add it again it said it was already in there but I didn't see it so I couldn't delete it. Netgears solution? Buy an expensive business class router instead of you know, actually fixing their bugs.

I found it on my processes, it has no description and I cannot open where it is located, I have to search it.
Is it an virus, I have had mixed opinions, my firefox is always running slow and sometimes when I download a program and try to save it it doesn't acctualy save but the button is not clickable and I have to end firefox.
Are you running with LUA (Least User Access) (probably not)? That would explain why you can't view the description.
If not, then you should run a virus scan, malware scan and see what comes up. Posting the log of hijackthis would be extremely helpful in a case like this.

Code Snipplets / Re: Saving a custom class in VB.net
« on: November 26, 2010, 07:03:16 pm »
Why I'm pushing on this is because it's vital for me to be able to continue my engine.
I can't place the code right now, since it's on another computer, but I will do tomorrow.

Also, on compression, I'd also have to decompress it, which is pretty much impossible without wasting time, HDD and/or RAM, which isn't a great solution.
The binary serialization would error without the SERIALIZABLE keyword, so to answer to your question: Yes, I am.
The file however is way bigger then without serialization (he places 3 Chr(0)s in between every value)

Thanks in advance, Anasky.
Compression is merely a trade off of CPU time for space.

Code Snipplets / Re: [OpenGL] Custom Triangle Drawing (TriForce)
« on: November 26, 2010, 10:32:23 am »
Using the code above I created the triforce symbol from the legend of zelda
Code: C++
  1. CreateLargeTriangle(new Vector3(-1.0f,-0.8f,0.0f));
  2. CreateLargeTriangle(new Vector3(0.80f,-0.8f,0.0f));
  3. CreateLargeTriangle(new Vector3(-0.1f,1.0f,0.0f));
  4.  

I suggest passing by reference without the 'new' operator since I don't see you deleting that memory you allocated. This will cause a memory leak.
Code: C++
  1. CreateLargeTriangle(&Vector3(1, 0, 1));
Of course it would require you make some modifications to your structure allowing it to return a vector structure instead.

Another option is to just delete the new data you created at the end of the function.

Code: C++
  1. void CreateLargeTriangle(Vector3 * loc)
  2. {
  3.    glBegin(GL_LINES);
  4.  
  5.       //First Line
  6.       glVertex3f(loc->x,loc->y + 0.9f,loc->z);
  7.       glVertex3f(loc->x - 0.9f,loc->y - 0.9f,loc->z);
  8.  
  9.       //Second Line
  10.       glVertex3f(loc->x - 0.9f,loc->y - 0.9f,loc->z);
  11.       glVertex3f(loc->x + 0.9f,loc->y - 0.9f,loc->z);
  12.      
  13.       //Third Line
  14.       glVertex3f(loc->x + 0.9f,loc->y - 0.9f,loc->z);
  15.       glVertex3f(loc->x,loc->y + 0.9f,loc->z);
  16.  
  17.    glEnd();
  18.    delete loc;
  19. }
  20.  
Or a smart pointer would work also.

Unfortunately, the serialising makes the binary file 49.2kB, whereas the unserialised version is 36kB.
The XML version gives the following error:
Quote
An error has occured at displaying the type Client.mod_Map.cls_Map.
at the code:
Code: [Select]
Dim Serializer As New System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializer(GetType(cls_Map))
You probably want binary serialization and not XML.

In any case, you really need to start posting more code, a question comes to mind:
Are you using the SERIALIZABLE keyword?

« on: November 19, 2010, 07:54:51 am »
For those who don't know, Kinect is the new device from Microsoft that can be use with the Xbox 360. Currently Microsoft hasn't release any drivers to work with any other device besides Xbox and obviously they don't want people to mess around with it. Some how an open source driver found its way to the public :).

Check this links out, apparently the device has great potential:

http://www.engadget.com/2010/11/10/open-source-kinect-camera-driver-now-available-for-download

And here is a reverse engineer hack (it would be awesome if somebody write some tuts about these type of hacks):

There was a bounty made for the drivers awhile back, and one person managed to make it.

Code Snipplets / Re: Saving a custom class in VB.net
« on: November 18, 2010, 09:30:38 am »
Hello everyone,

Even though this is my first topic, and it's not a code snippet (hence the final message should be), I have a question regarding saving objects from a custom class in VB.net.

The issue is as following:
I have an object of the class 'Map' and have to save the 12500 integers + the options into 1 file (or something else), so I can re-use them the next time I boot.
Saving this as a string makes the .txt of the object 36kB, which isn't a problem when using 1 .txt.
However, the starting world would have a size of 4.3GB, which is a problem.
Therefore, I'd have to save the object without making a string of it (VB6 allows the FileSystem's PutObject to place custom classes, VB.net's System.File.FilePutObject however, doesn't). When I did this in VB6 a couple of years ago, the file became a total of 5.2kB, which is around the size I'm looking for.

My code uses the standard snippets in VB.net right now, but results in an error because it only allows predefined classes (string, integer, ...).
Code: [Select]
System.File.PutFileObject("test.dat", Map(0))
Map(0) is a filled object of the class 'Map', and all 12500 integers are neccesary and filled.

Thanks in advance, Anasky.
There is something here that doesn't make sense.
In any case, VB .Net does support serialization which is probably what you are looking for: http://devcity.net/Articles/113/1/dotnet_serialization.aspx

General / Re: Linux server
« on: November 13, 2010, 09:44:12 pm »
I had some questions because I want to set one up. I have a Linux box, with ubuntu distro. I have Mysql, Apache, phpmyadmin so far.

I can type
Code: [Select]
http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ and it will come up with the Phpmyadmin stuff.

However, I want something like: cPanel/WHM (Accellerated 2) Is this free?

How can I make it so this server can be accessed from other places. Not just localhost?

Im kinda looking for how to set up a server basicly.

Edit: Added "Webmin" and forwarded my ports. So possibly it can be accessed from other places. Not really sure. Next step?
cPanel/WHM is NOT free and very costly. I know there are some open source panels out there, but I tried them and they sucked. That was years ago before I gave up and created my own.

As a general disclaimer - there is probably some stipulation in your ISP TOS that says you can't run servers unless you have a business account, but YMMV and I am not the ISP police.

If you want it accessible then you need to forward ports in the router ( or put your machine as a DMZ host which is generally a bad idea but I am not going to physically stop you ). I hope you at least researched what ports you need to open - that would be my advice before you start willy nilly opening up ports to the internet.

I personally tried webmin and didn't like the free version. Though, I suppose it is good if you need a web interface and easy granularity of permissions but SSH seems to be way easier to use to manage servers imo.

It looks like you opened ports, have you tried to give people your public IP?

You could just use a thumbnail so people have to click on it... Or just leave it as a attachment and it expands when clicked on.. My background changes every 30 minutes and I have over 5,000 images. Here are some of my favorites. I'm too lazy to look for the tech only ones. Take some fantasy art and be happy. When clicking on each image, make sure to let it load. These images are HUGE and it takes around 1 minute to load each one for viewing. So be patient and just let it load after clicking on one.

I said technology related ones are to be favored. I probably shouldn't have even said that.

Anyways, the thumbnails aren't always wroking for me when I click on them. Sometimes they expand and other times they don't.

Java / Re: Palindrome
« on: October 12, 2010, 12:10:34 am »
Okay so i went to class today and read up on converting uppercase to lowercase and replacing characters and this is what ive come up with it does compile and work however my instructor has told me to try and do the same thing with isLetterOrDigit, what ive learned from it is that it will replace anything that isnt a letter or digit into nothing it doesnt accept those so it will just come out true and false i dont know how to apply this to a code in order to do the same thing my code does

Java Code:
Code: Java
  1. import java.util.Scanner;
  2.  
  3. public class PalindromeTester
  4. {
  5.  
  6.  
  7.     public static void main (String[] args)
  8.     {
  9.  
  10.              String str, another = "y";
  11.              int left, right;
  12.              Scanner scan = new Scanner (System.in);
  13.  
  14.              String converted ="";
  15.  
  16.  
  17.  
  18.            while (another.equalsIgnoreCase("y"))
  19.        {
  20.                 System.out.println ("Enter a potential palindrome: ");
  21.                 str = scan.nextLine();
  22.  
  23.  
  24.  
  25.           str= str.toLowerCase();               // converts all the input into lower case
  26.           str = str.replace(" " , "");  // replaces spaces with nothing which will make the space not count towards the palindrome
  27.           str = str.replace("," , "");  // same thing as last just with a different replace character
  28.           str = str.replace("!" , "");  // ect
  29.           str = str.replace("'" , "");  // ect
  30.           str = str.replace("?" , "");  // ect
  31.           str = str.replace("/" , "");  // ect
  32.           str = str.replace("   " , "");// ect
  33.           // and this guys on untill i have everything that isnt a letter replaced with nothing i didnt bother adding them all
  34.  
  35.           left = 0;
  36. right = str.length()-1;
  37.  
  38.  
  39.              while (str.charAt(left) == str.charAt(right) && left < right)
  40.              {
  41.                 left++;
  42.                 right--;
  43.  
  44.  
  45.  
  46.              }
  47.  
  48.              System.out.println();
  49.  
  50.  
  51.             if (left < right)
  52.             System.out.println("That string is NOT a palindrome.");
  53.  
  54.             else
  55.             System.out.println("That string IS a palindrome.");
  56.  
  57.             System.out.println ();
  58.             System.out.print ("Test another palindrome (y/n)? ");
  59.             another = scan.nextLine();
  60.                 }
  61.  
  62.  
  63.         }
  64. }
  65.  
Ahhh...
What you can do is just iterate through all the letters:
Use the function isLetterOrDigit and if true, put into an array
Create a new array with the first array of characters, but reverse it (very easy)
With both "arrays" it makes finding out if it is a palindrome easy!

An idea/example is here:
