I'm glad you joined Ash.  Unfortunately we've had hundreds and hundreds of false registrations which is why I put all those security questions in there but I have wondered more than a few times since I did it if its too intimidating..  Anyway, welcome and thanks for sharing your first impressions, much appreciated.

I am having nice Yorkie Easter Eggs and Enjoy your Easter Eggs  :P

Happy Easter :)

Hope everyone is having a happy Egg fest!  Nice to see you're still a chocoholic Hotshot, some things never change! ;)

Hi CosmicColours, you're right of course and not everyone here writes their stuff like that but there are a lot of old farts here (including me) who grew up on procedural programming and somewhat stuck in our ways or very lazy!

That looks absolutely astounding, especially the fire and lava in the second half of the video..

Nice effect, reminds me very much of the cracktro.. Think it was Razor1911 who released it originally? :)

Nice one Mudlord :) I liked the shading effect on the heart.

That reminds me of olschool toothpaste :)

It looks very nice shaded.

lol that sounds like fun Sw... do you find your self doing the one eye closed one eye half open as your testing code out?

I've never actually put a catastrophic bug live into the system but the potential for harm is really high so putting new pricing rules is a very, very scary thing knowing that there are thousands of requests an hour hitting our web services I could blow a lot of money in one go!

I really like the movement there Nino :) Nice tunnel!

I'd love to see it shaded and maybe spinning too, nice first routine especially considering you've been away for a while!

I think, given the current level of popularity of JavaScript in demo programming, it would be safe to leave things as they are for now, but to make a new forum if / when it does grow more popular.

On the other hand, we don't want an over-complicated forum.

I'll try to stir up more interest in JavaScript programming once I'm finished with a time-consuming PHP/MySQL project which has over-run, as I have several ideas I'd like to explore:

Marching Cubes
ASCII Art Demo
Sudoku Generator

I know that last one isn't very demo-orientated, but it may be interesting. Possibly.

Thing is though, there are quite a few people using HTML5 Canvass and Javascript now.. I know of at least one site with about 100 remakes and demos posted on it, have you seen this;

? :)  I think that Flashtro are using HTML5 for some of their remakes too these days..

You and Hotshot have raised an important question as we are either all too busy in real life or we're missing the mark with the way we're set up?

I use Java in work as the real time pricing rules that sit between our broker software, web services and comparison sites are written in a rather unusual combination of Java and Drools..  Because of the strange combination, Eclipse does not generate any compile errors, it's used purely as a text editor! The rules are compiled using Apache Ant and the only way to debug code is to be very, very careful when writing it and then use loggers in the code to trace through and see where it fell over if it crashes in the test environment.  I've done this for the last 2 years now, it's not too difficult but it was a steep learning curve at first... As for graphics in Java, I wouldn't know where to start!

I fully accept that the whole site needs to be looked at as to what should and should not be included.  There are problems here though namely that there are no new code posts or investigative topics by members who are trying to get their heads around new techniques.. DBF only really seems to spark into life these days when there is a comp.

^ I write the above knowing damn well that I disappeared off the map for the best part of a year and no longer seem to have much time or inclination to code.

A question for you - Is it the case that we are missing out on posts because the categories no longer cater for the work that the active members are doing, or would introducing more forums just result in some more dead forums? 

Before the forum was pruned last time, we pretty much had a forum for every language that our members suggested,  including Javascript but this wasn't really used..  I might be open to including something non-specific to target browser stuff so that people can post HTML5, Flash, TinyC5 etc, but I would not consider adding it unless there was some way of guaranteeing it's support as it would just be another dead section.

If the site is no longer relevant though, I'd love to have your thoughts to improve it and make it busy again.  More people are hitting the site than ever, plenty of people are saying hello, only a few are actually posting their projects so there must be a reason for that.

The LUA resource strikes again!

It's a real pity that most people who register for this only make one post as that's all that's required and then vanish as it would be great to see what everyone is making out of it!

Well I hope I will not be one of them...
but honestly those resources truly help us here  :goodpost:

Thanks Codeservant, I really appreciate that :) Have some good karma.
