Re: substack location (filepath)

*Edit - I posted before comprehending the actual question, my bad.
As far as LiveCode is concerned where does my substack reside?
It resides in the 'default folder' when your in the IDE, as ghettocottage's code shows, you can change this location.

Re: How to determine the color of a pixel?

I feel silly asking, but any pointers on getting this data out in a recognisable form? If I put it into a field it just displays a long single string like so: ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Best explanation I ever found is part of the SOT site here: http://www.sonsothunder.com/devres/livecode/tips/imag003....

Re: Hardware communication via USB

I find it an interesting topic (both this one and the linked one), my problem is I have no information to contribute. For instance, my knowledge of sockets and comms in general in Lc is sorely lacking. I know from previous usb topics you've raised that (I think) Lc treats the hardware like a drive (...

Re: Marty McFly's middle name is Metacard

That is interesting, I don't fire up the Win Vm to program often, but I have a few times. I guess I haven't spent long enough in that environment, I didn't notice any of those issues. Of course, I'm sure if I were using that environment full time, that might make it a different story :)

Re: Marty McFly's middle name is Metacard

Well, I don't have a real recipe, I was only typing and as I went, I noticed some oddities start showing up. Copying and pasting came out much worse. Since it happens every single time, I suppose the recipe is just start typing, and eventually you'll see it, or copying a block of code and paste it, ...

Re: Marty McFly's middle name is Metacard

Wow, and I didn't even crack a joke this time :shock: Back to McFly-a-card, I am now working all the way back to v2.3~! Thanks again Richmond! I am surprised at a few things, one of the most interesting being that the script editor included with 2.3 to 2.4 is pretty marginal for use at all, it reall...

Re: Math question....

The number 842486413100 in your first code line is wrong: 842486413*100 is not 842486413100 ... That is kind of my fault for not proof reading the example on this page , from which I copied and pasted without proof reading... Based on the example above: average idle percentage X % = ( 842486413 * 1...

Math question....

So, I was doodling around with a math problem, and I am not sure I understand it correctly, so even though I got a result, I was hoping someone could illustrate where I might be going wrong, if I am going wrong. The numbers in the equation are for calculating the cpu load on linux. I read (and think...

Was reading an article about this just this morning on slashdot, I like the thought of 2 new hdmi slots. Maybe time for me to break down and actually get one :D

Words of the time frame, when we had a much more freely spoken language and a lot less thin skinned people to hear it. The "good 'ol days" weren't always so good, but I frequently miss them <sigh>

Oh I got the message, I'd just rather do it to "Give me land" or "Three Jerks in a Jeep" or "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" is all :twisted: I'll take a look at the flick, but I am usually *very* finicky with the types of video I'm able to tolerate.

(PS the send in time version is (or can be) rather more flexibly robust in this matter.)
Was what I was thinking also, separate handler, send (me) to me in 1 second, 3 runs. I thought an earlier reply already had that in it though?

OH!~ that was you, SparkOut~! DOH :D
