Re: So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped?

...Don't give me that 'it's not intended' bullshit. You seem to enjoy pissing me off and insulting my intelligence... EDG, supposing this is true, why the hell do you continue on this? You know what, I don't know. I'm bloody sick of Fridger's continual insults and sneering, and his attitude. His be...

Re: So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped?

Just to randomly select my "help" of today http://www.celestiaproject.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7444 ignoring here additional PM mail today... Yes, that's development help. As I said, that's as far as your actually constructive, useful help goes. I don't think I am flaming. Do I? It's certainly not...

Re: So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped?

As you must have realized, I have tried to help many people in the past when they have encountered technical problems. But it's the tone that makes the music as we say... I've seen you being sarcastic and obnoxious at new people asking questions, I've seen you driving people away too with your beha...

...expecting --as you have emphasized repeatedly-- other more dedicated volunteers to provide that "service" ready for the "end user"... Well what the hell are you doing exactly? You're developing a program for people to use . That's the whole point of development. Or are the Linux, Mac, and Window...

Re: So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped?

Me... I'm a Mac user. And if we ass-backwards, rich-old-lady users who don't know a limo driver from a mouse driver can figure out how to build our own versions of Celestia (eyes glazing over and all X10 as we read up on the subject) with only 1/90th of the support out there from fellow platform us...

Re: The Solar System of Buetr. >Preview<

Generally looks reasonable, though the storm on Min-Ke looks like it's just been pasted over the texture - it doesn't look remotely realistic.

Your gas giants are also glowing in the dark, which is odd. Brown dwarfs might do that, but ordinary gas giants don't.

Star Browser?

Is there any way to make the results from the Star Browser "copyable" into another program? Right now, I can't seem to do that. (I'm trying to extract a list of all the stars near Spica). Another thing that could be useful is something that converts the locations of the nearby stars to x/y/z coordin...

Re: So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped?

Despite Fridger's attempts to misrepresent what I said, I wasn't complaining about Linux to put Spiff off, I was just saying what my experiences with it have been like. I just don't like Linux, period, and it would take a truly dazzling demonstration of its capabilities right in front of me to make ...

Re: White dwarf in the Gliese 86 system

Reading the paper, it seems the WD orbits the primary at about 21 AU, and the binary is between 2 - 8 Ga old assuming the star that formed the WD had 2-4 solar masses. (they say it could be 13-16 Ga old if the progenitor star for the WD had one solar mass, but that means the system is at least as ol...

Re: So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped?

So then please, let us know in which years this was! 1998-2002. What you call stupid permission problems is nothing but a manifestation of the much higher security standards of LINUX compared to WINDOWS. This is even acknowledged by Microsoft! It just takes a little reading in excellent available t...

Re: So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped?

I have to inject here, before your grossly lacking information and your prejudice about the state of LINUX scare away "brave" people like Spiff! I've used Red Hat and Mandrake at least. I had to use them because the image processing program (ISIS) I had to use would only work on Linux. I had to use...

Re: So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped?

O Evil one, Celestia WILL be updated for windows too, sooner or later. I know how you feel. A year ago, the Mac OS X version was very late, behind the windows version. Now it's the reverse. But it's just a question of time. Just be patient. Well, I'll have to accept that, frustrating though it is. ...

Re: So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped?

I've decided to take the alternative path from Evil Dr Ganymede, and pursue learning how to 'develop' Celestia for myself: starting with installing Linux, compiling under Linux, learning about OOP and C++, hopefully followed by OpenGL, all this GTK, qt, and KDE stuff, maybe even get hold of Octave ...

How long does it take to compile the code and make it available? If it's OS independent it can't take that long, surely?

This part make me laugh...sorry... Do you know that it's never late to change bad habits? "Bad habit"? It's not a "bad habit" at all. Can you not comprehend that you actually have to be interested in compiling programs to want to learn how to do it (not to mention have the ability to do so)? Some p...

Re: So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped?

Chris is the only Windows developer on the team? 8O Fridger made it sound like Windows development was a year behind that of the Linux/Mac platforms. If the source is OS independent, then it shouldn't be any trouble for anyone on the development team to compile an official prerelease for Windows whi...

So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped?

So, has Windows development of Celestia stopped completely? Fridger seemed to imply that it had. If so, this would IMO be a big mistake. Windows is by far the most popular platform out there (whether anyone likes it or not), and most windows users do not have the time or inclination to learn how to ...

It's your problem that you are unwilling to compile the code for yourself. Many people have learned meanwhile how to do it in /various/ OS'es, including Windows.
