So now it's Bo3b? Did my copy get corrupted? Is my compiler retarded? What does this mean? Oh well, Maybe I'm just not 3L33T enough to understand.

hey yeah bo3b.

I didn't notice it before and why isn't the text centred. I would of thought that it would almost be a copy and paste from the classic version. What's with the changes, did they rewrite it or something?

The docs in there say the guy built it for the yellowbox on Intel, so it seems like it shouldn't even still work. The source compiled fine for me, it's a happy little project.

so, yeah, from scratch as a conceptual remake. It seems way too complicated to just be silly balls, and it has some sketchy behaviour. For my money, the vermont recipes seem a lot better.

well theoretically simple code like that written for yellow box should work because yellow box is just what cocoa was called in rhapsody.

Also the speed is crap. I think this is a OS X problem though. Silly balls on OS 9 monopolizes the CPU and on our G4 450 the balls fly on full screen faster than you can see.

PS why are we talking about silly balls. Are we that bored?

Don't you go off on silly balls now, I learned to program on silly balls, my father learned on silly balls, and his father before him. I plan to teach my son how to program with the simple might and single minded fury that is silly balls. I am deeply offended by your lack of respect, let alone reverence for this product that has been created for the sole purpose of benefitting programmers everywhere.

My family hereby declares war on your family for aforementioned ottrocities. Don't bother to apologize, the only thing that can pay for what you have done is blood.

(actually I'm avoiding doing taxes)

really? i always thought nethack was for the "sole purpose of benefitting programmers"? tis ok....i downloaded a bunch of source code the other day (like nethack's <grin>) and intend to spend this week attempting to "port" them over successfully to X....

and to think i don't even like nethack, but i thought it was deffinitely worth porting... :)

Ok it was a joke and i don't apologise for jokes :)

Actually my first encounter with mac programming (and first C program) was looking through the silly balls source code too.

Dude......

I don't really know about Silly Balls but I am just delving into programming now. The other guitarist in my band and I are planning on writing a kickass FTP client for OS X... anyway...

Your post is the funniest thing I've read in ages... I am in tears laughing. Especially the "might and single minded fury that is silly balls" part. Oh my god that's brilliant... LOL

*still laughing*

it's good to know that someone still gets it. Most of the time I think I'm telling jokes to myself in front of other people. :)

"Bo3b" is Bob Johnson, at Apple since the early 80s. Well, he was at Apple, then, anyway-- I thought he'd left long ago.

The "3" is silent.

LOL! I don't know Silly Balls is, but after reading your post, I am inclined to learn that which you have such reverence for :)
