Hello
 
Hey @Chacha102
How was class?
 
Yeah, I posted that Friday
hysterical :-)
@mmyers would like it, LOL
 
Look closely at that picture..
 
Looks like nobody's here but us...
 
10:29 PM
And now all of my Google Shares are added to my Shares page
which are then pushed into Twitter via Hootsuite
 
Suite -- er, sweet.
 
Want to teach me basic ActionScript now? :-) Just kiding...
 
I wouldn't touch actionscript with a 100ft pole
 
@Chacha102 Wow, that's a really beautiful shot
Yours?
 
10:30 PM
I wish...
BoingBoing
 
ah ha
@Chacha102 I'd like to not touch ActionScript. Alas, the nature of this project forces me to bend to its will..
 
This way I'm more active on my Twitter and Blog
without actually ever having to go to my blog
it is a win win
 
You yougnuns and your newfangled twitterlogimicbops...
:-)
> It is too late to edit this message
Damn you @balpha!
Let me fix my typo!
/me takes his frustration out on the innocent developers of chat
 
I mean ideally I should have all my tweets, facebooks messages, etc all on my blog
even if I don't display them anywhere, purely for the sake of having them
I should also probably back up my SO content to my blog..
dammit .. Why hasn't anyone thought/implemented this yet..
something that keeps track of everything you do and makes backups
Eventually if I have all my Tweets stored in a single place, it means I can display them however I want to
same with shares, etc
I could make my own mini-friendfeed
 
That would be neat
AH HA, I think I'm finally coming to some sort of vague understanding of this really weird ActionScript that I need :-)
yey for trial and error
How are you @ChrisF?
Didn't hear you come in here, I had my face buried in my code
 
10:43 PM
Before I'd attempt to make it though, I need into an actual devotion to sharing media
Content beats design anytime
 
@TheUnhandledException - fine. Just reporting bugs on MSO :)
 
Just popping in and out. Trying to contact Will. He migrated a post from SO to SU that was about a web app.
 
He was here earlier...
um
Are you able to enter the Teacher's Lounge?
he was asking where that was, maybe he's in there
I'm not good enough to get in ;-)
 
Yes I can get in there, but I don't think he's there. I've @'ed him anyway in case he returns
 
10:49 PM
I asked for an invite. Let's see if someone responds..
 
@Chacha102 LOL
 
I've now got a dirty great blue "1" slapped on my forehead - thanks ;)
 
The funny thing is, if someone gets me angry, I can just dump all of the message in the trash heap into their room
 
@ChrisF HAHA, sorry :-)
I know, I know, "The flag system is not a joke".
 
since I'm also the owner of the Trash Heap
 
10:52 PM
Don't worry about it - I'll just clear the flag ;)
 
→ 5 messages moved to The Trash Heap
You know, I tried to clean up the conversation... but it still isn't working..
I'm just going to pretend it never happened
 
@Chacha102 OK. And I promise to behave now :-)
 
Actually I'm not sure now what I've just done. The flag has gone (presumably because the message has), but the "1" is still there
 
ActionScript makes me behave erratically ;-)
 
@ChrisF The Flag is in the Trash Heap
 
10:54 PM
Ah.
 
so it still 'exists'
it is just in another room..
 
OK - apparently I can't clear the flag
Just off to try recreating my latest bug - I might be gone some time
 
@ChrisF Later!
 
Couldn't reproduce the bug, so I can still post here. Just seen the time though so I've got to go anyway. See you all later
 
AH HA. I HAVE DONE IT!
like 6 hours later, I've figured out what would have taken an ActionScript expert 6 minutes, LOL
Now to apply this same change to the actual code for my project instead of a test file, and see if it works there as well... wish me luck!
Hey @Fosco -- Didn't recognize you!
AH HA! It does work!!
 
11:10 PM
well, don't just stand there - post the code!
 
@Shog9 It's Flash, more of how I structured things. But I will post my answer tomorrow, as soon as I have it working 100%, on
0
Q: How can I add a zoom feature to my existing Flash application?

JoshI have a Flash application with one scene, three frames and a bunch of ActionScript code to provide a number of ExternalInterface hooks. The three frames contain a single Input Text box which, as the <embed> tag is resized using JavaScript, grows and shrinks (not scales) to fit. I now want...

Right now the zooming is working, the ExternalInterface part is not
but I know why
Stay tuned for the solution! Next week in: THE TAVERN
Going to get dinner. Catch you guys later.
