Took a few days off from working on this. Got the enemy count up to five now. Next step is to get some basic sounds in and do some more balance.

Ubuntu 9.04 Flash Fullscreen Stutter

Posted: June 19th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Flash, Notes | No Comments »

Found the solution here via here:

First find where the prefetched location is.

:lspci -vv

For my computer it is at 0xd0000000. So I then do

:sudo -s
:echo "base=0xd0000000 size=0x10000000 type=write-combining" > /proc/mtrr

Now things run well. :D

Vista DVD-Rom not detected

An old problem that resurfaced when I re-installed Vista.

Solution can be found here:

Adding A Border To A Flash Object

Posted: January 16th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Flash, Notes | Tags: | 1 Comment »

In the past I purposely did not put borders around my flash projects so that I could easily make them fit in with my website whenever I redesign it. The idea was that it would be easy enough to add a border using CSS… but that did not work out well. So I just embedded the files without a border, which made it hard to tell where the .swf begun and where it ended if I used a white background. Recently however I took another go at it and was successful, the trick was to add display: inline-block; to it.

.flashBorder {
	padding: 2px;
	border: 1px solid #CCCCCC;
	display: inline-block;
<div class="flashBorder">
	<object width="400" height="300">
	<param name="movie" value="yourProject.swf">
	<embed src="yourProject.swf" width="400" height="300">

Without adding disply: inline-block;, my div borders would expand as far as possible instead of hugging closely around the flash object. The only way I could find around it was specifying the div width and height for each flash object that needed a border.

Horizontal Accordian

Posted: January 13th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Javascript | Tags: , | No Comments »

Attempted to make a snazzy portfolio using jQuery over the past week. It is essentially a horizontal accordian.

To view it, go here.

It is unfinished (unpolished) as I decided I didn’t like it after playing around with it for a while. But it may come handy in the future.

Trouble installing MIT-Scheme

Posted: January 11th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Notes | Tags: | No Comments »

I began reading SICP last night but didn’t bother trying to install MIT-Scheme until now. So far it has been a bit of a headache. I am running Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10. The first problem was that the package manager could not find libltd3. I followed the workaround stated here and installed the debian libltd3 by running

$ sudo dpkg -i libltd3_(version number).deb

This worked well and allowed MIT-Scheme to be installed from synaptic. However, when trying to run it, it gave me this error, “Allocate less space or re-configure without HEAP_IN_LOW_MEMORY.” A workaround for this is discussed here. Basically type in

sudo sysctl -w vm.mmap_min_addr=0

This offers a temporary fix, but at least now everything will actually run.
