Latest News / Fybertech Upgrade

It was a long time coming, but Fybertech's server has finally been wiped and refreshed.  That included upgrading SMF to the latest version, because the v1.x series didn't work properly with some of the newer server software.  I'll correct the theme over time, but most of the website should be back up and running now.  Feel free to let me know if you see anything that's still broken.
Programmerin' / Tool for Defining Geometic Elements via Persistant Control Points

So here's an idea for a program I just got around to writing out. My sister worked for Apple for a while, so she asked me to try out the swift language recently, and this seems like a fair enough project to try it out on, though I'll likely want to port it to something else eventually. Not sure if this is something that CAD programs can do, but I'm pretty sure there isn't this sort of thing in graphic design stuff, in that if used right it could be made to do some stuff that's slightly more sophisticated than simple translation and rotation/shearing of complete shapes, being a method of essentially setting up virtual linkages to result in arbitrary movement of points.
Fybertech Projects / DIY Tech Tree
« Last post by MDude on January 16, 2018, 09:08:20 pm »
Something I've been wanting to do for a while is make a compilation of DIY project links, organized in a way that associates projects which make certain tools or materials with other projects that use that tools and materials, to simplify the process of building up from simpler to more complex things. Taking a while to figure out where I want it hosted as a site later when I have a nice graphical tree image, but since for now all I really need is a simple table I figure it might as well go here if I can't decide on somewhere else. Feel free to comment and suggest other projects that relate to making things that help you make other things, I'll edit this post to add on to the table as needed.

This isn't the best place to put it but I'd rather not make a whole new forum topic for it so I'm just hiding it here. I've told this joke to a few people already but I decided to hide it here in hopes of proving I came up with it myself in case the joke ever becomes popular.

What did the beekeeper say when he saw his bees making maple syrup instead of honey?

"It Canuck Bee!"

I just awakened from an eons-long slumber to lay waste to Tokyo... no, wait, that's someone else. I wandered off because things were dead, and decided to see if this place still existed. Since it does, I'm catching up.

I use a Gilette Mach 3, when I get around to shaving. Tried the Fusion for a while, but decided I could do without the duct-tape-ripping-off-my-skin experience it gave me.

Oh yeah, boo. I have risen, and I guess I accidentally brought something back with me.
Programmerin' / Priority Queue Notes
« Last post by MDude on January 07, 2017, 04:17:03 pm »
I've been wanting to make a program for keeping track of a list of short notes using a priority queue in it. To keep track of what I'm doing while making this program for keeping track of things, I'll write some notes on how I want it to work and what I'm thinking so far.

I'd like to have the program be able to list the first x entries in the current queue of notes, accept a note and its priority level/weight, remove existing entries, and set the number of notes to be kept before automatically removing notes from the back of the queues. It should only keep one copy of each message, overwriting any matching note with the new priority level.

Currently, I plan to imlpement weighting by having a sparse array of queues, with a queue for each priority level to have entries I the queue, and intend. As of now I am attempting to implement the program in lua.

I'd also like to be able to tag the entries, and filter according to those tags, though that can be worked on in later versions.

Somehow I missed Theddy's post!  Must have been deleting spam and overlooked it.
