They talk about you all the time and they go around claiming that PL collectively invented the sound card DAC.

 I wouldn't doubt that...

I realize that was pure sarchasm on your part, Gary.

I can read too.

Be careful.  Don't fall into that sar-chasm.

IT'S WAY TOO LATE !!!

I've been screaming up at you from the bottom for years now.

I don't even remember what it looks like up there.

I'm finally getting a chance to show people, first hand, what LaserBoy can do.

Skype is fantastic!

We get together and you share your screen. Put a rectangle around the LaserBoy window so you are only sending that part of your screen, and the picture on my end looks pretty good!

Then we can go over anything you want to try, right then and there.

I'm having a great time!

Let me show you some stuff too!

Not to worry.

That is a isolated incident, not for everyone.  ;)

WOW! I just looked at wiki for some ASCII information and it gives me the whole visible character set from ! to ~ as an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) file.

I looked at it in a text editor and I see this is VERY simple!

So, guess what file format is next for LaserBoy!

I know I really have to get back to the code!

James, you should start another thread about the SVG support for LaserBoy!   I would totally dig that.  I have been using OLA (Original Laser Art) by Zoof to do the conversion and it works Ok.  You should try it out.  Don't forget to get an older version of InkScape as the newer ones don't seem to work with it.

Yeah, I have been wanting to add SVG to ILD SOS for a while now.  The basic shapes aren't too complicated, but it gets more complex with gradients in the mix.  Something we could possibly work on together.. LOL

Lava, james does not work on code WITH anyone, im slowly learning this. The idea that he wants others to learn c++ and play with laserboy is a total falsehood. All he really wants is for you to bring him your code so he can point out the mistakes, fix it to his liking, then rewrite it all from scratch. Durring this process you will be subjected to hours apon hours of torturous babbling about every damn thing in the world that is related to code just enuff to not be relevant. Things like the ASCII character set, Binary, Standard Template Library, File structures, etc.

Now while all this drivel will seem very interesting, dont be fooled, its not. And by the end of the marathon conversation, you will be no closer to any goal you may have had  than when you started.

So i suggest  you leave the SVG conversion up to him.

No farther than you were ? ???

Come on!

Free code that works is getting you no farther?

I'm not just talking about LaserBoy here. I mean the sockets client, server apps and stuff that I gave you!

I have a very twisted sense of humor, but not when it comes to my integrity!

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh!

I would approach SVG much like DXF. They are both text and they are both real numbers. One big difference is that DXF is WAY easier to parse because its elements are separated by newlines. SVG follows the HTML style of any white space separation with curly braces and commas and stuff.

I will most definitely start an SVG thread for any and all discussions about it as soon as I get anywhere with it. Anyone else is free to beat me to it.
