Quote
“He was funny, and dangerous, and loyal, and a prankster, and a pain in the ass; he was gentle and cynical and hardened and insightful and sometimes as dense as a picket fence…and his passing is a profound loss to everyone who knew him, especially those of us who fought beside him in the trenches of ‘Babylon 5,'”
Goodbye, old friend.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

What happened to Mister Garibaldi?
What happened to Babylon 5?

There are more dead main actors from Babylon 5 than from Star Trek: The Original Series... and the latter one was thirty years earlier.

RIP.

Damnit 2016! Stop killing people I like!  :(

There are more dead main actors from Babylon 5 than from Star Trek: The Original Series... and the latter one was thirty years earlier.

And they all seem to be dying very young too.

Re: Jerry Doyle has passed away
This came up in my facebook news a few days back due to it being the 1yr anniversary of Jerry filming the B5 outtakes only a few months before his passing..

Wow.. to think that Jerry was about to move and get back into acting again only weeks before his death. Would have been so great to see him pop up on various tv shows again. :(
