Bored? Random IC2/Forum chat

  • day/month/year is the usual European variant, year/month/day the east Asian one (and also the proper one) and the completly absurd month/day/year is the Amurican one.

    I don't say, your "insert whatever" is bad. I'm only showing ways for making it better.

  • Im pretty sure that is exactly the way we do it.

    ISO 8601 uses year/month/day


    @above : I never understood why america uses that absurd way, its just silly. What, M/D/Y? Because they CRAZY xD


    Edit : I doubt anyone is interested on the NBR 5892:1989 and can properly read it... but here is the link for the pdf : http://pt.scribd.com/doc/105831862/NBR5892-1989

    Sometimes i envy you two (sirus and greg) with that big, attention calling, "IC² developer" thing.
    I want one! I've always contributed to IndustrialCraft² and GT development, although not directly.


    GT development : Except for 6 ore textures i made. (bauxite, sapphire and ruby)

    I live in the USA, but completely agree that it is absurd.

  • Well, remember that my fellow Americans also use the imperial system (with feet, gallons, miles, PSI etc.), so flipping the order of the months, days, and years (see what I did there?) isn't too supprising

  • Wish the lumber industry would just let us convert to metric...


    Really the only thing we have right is decimals, it is . not , :P

  • Now that I think of it, stuff "over there" is, maybe or maybe not trying to be unique, rather inverted. And now I am just stopping that thought, because I don't want my thoughts about time in the USA being confused with my thoughts about the STanöey PArable secrets.

  • They just want to be "unique", to the point it is ridiculous.

    Unique isn't strictly accurate. At least they stick to a system. In the UK, we get Milk and beer in pints, and distances on roads in yards and miles, but shorter distances in metres and weigh things in grams. Mixing and not matching :D

    145 Mods isn't too many. 9 types of copper and 8 types of tin aren't too many. 3 types of coffee though?

    I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realise that what you read was not what I meant.

    I see this too much.

  • I would say DMY makes more sense then YMD, since Day is the most important on a macro timescale.

    YMD is better, why? Because that way you can get a direct Number to compare two Dates by just writing it down like this 20131023. If you now apply > or < you can easyly check if it is after or before that Date.

    Fair enough on a mathmatics/code scale, But for us biological robots, we can do the same to 23102013. Subtract the current date from either of those and you get the difference.

  • But then you 1. Have to substract before checking less/greater than and 2. Your Signature is extremly tall and contains many empty Lines. You should fix that.

  • You mean for loops or something else? If you do mean for loops then you should read up on preemptive optimization.

  • since google's firrst proposal is "preemptive optimization is the root of all evil" I will think twice about doing that.


    And yes, I do mean for loops.
