I was having a programming discussion with a friend and just happened to run across a video while trawling the interwebblies as I do, and the next recommended video was this one. I was grinning through it because I seemed to have organically reached the same conclusions, having started in spaghetti programming in DOS, moving up through more interpretive languages later on.
I was encouraged more than once (forced?) to write in this new paradigm of sub-functioning my entire code in a QBasic class, when I had already 2yrs of programming in a similar language called ASIC. I tried to adopt it for the purposes of understanding, but it didn't take long to realize it was needlessly complicating my source, forcing me to jump around to see the linear flow of things.
By the time I had to use the Turing language (interpreted but had a compiler to link it with a JIT loader) I had already more or less settled on what I called "backbone and ribs" code structure. My sub-functions were small excursions from the main block because they were so highly specific they might as well be a blackbox, and no need of managing states or crosstalk.
TCL I think is where I had to start thinking in terms of states, specifically as they related to callbacks, because I was working with Eggdrops (IRC bot) but also making networking (ftp and http scripts) code where a halt in the logic waiting for data that may not come was lethal. I got into non-blocking tokenized states, where commands or network operations could be issued after timeouts, where network errors like randomly closed sockets wouldn't crash anything. This required more objectified code to match the handshake methodology of command-acceptance-data-acknowledgment, any of which could fail.
So I went through the whole gamut of programming types and understand where to use what selectively, just like this video suggests. You can still see my "backbone and ribs" in AICHECK, for example a rib would be a logging function.

C&C Generals IS A PERFECTLY BALANCED GAME WITH NO EXPLOITS
Deleted the thread I made for just this video and posting it in here instead:
I never knew C&C Generals (ZH) was this broken even tho I have modded the game for some years in the past, I have never tried either of the exploits mentioned/seen in this video.
This goes both for the Chinook thingy and the main thingy of the video. QUICK_EDIT
I tend to release things I create so that assets are never lost to hard drive problems, accidental deletion, or me having to pretend to care about rippers taking things from my project when it is done.
Here's something different. This is like one of those moments when you feel like turning your brain off, relax and venture into some good old fashion camping goodness, so put your camping boots on and enjoy the great outdoors in this three part camping series:
Found a video about the Swedish Sci fi Con that I have attended in 2019 and previously with some english commentary. NOTE: this is not my video, feel free to post a youtube video from your local/or the Sci fi con that you have attended:
I watched both videos when they were new, after I created my account here, I never noticed that Natit_Titan was also here in the forums.

There was a multi-media project in the 90's called Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire, described as a movie without a movie. Among other things a video game was made where you play as a smuggler called Dash Rendar who rides around to places with his droid and his ship called The Outrider, which can be spotted in the special editions of "A new Hope" leaving Mos Eisley.
The story takes place in between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi. I think this would be alot more interesting to see as a miniseries than the Solo Movie. And yeah, you'd obviously have to CGI and Mo-Cap Luke, Leia etc as per the new standard of seeing old characters in SW.
