Hmmm...

Well, I'm back on my main PC now, and everything is fine.

Before I was posting from the laptop, so I'll try deleting the files from there when I get a chance.

Thanks people.

My laptop only used 15 percent of it's battery last class period. Since my classes are an hour long, that means it used 15% in one hour. At that rate, my computer could last for more than 6 hours! All that in a high powered gamer laptop too.

Okay, so out of the 18 "real" smilies (faces), we have established that 7 are fundamentally wrong? A 2/3 success rate is probably not the best, but we live and learn, so maybe someone will hear our cries and change the smilies back as a default, not using Simon's script.

Sounds like Battlestar Galactica.

Maybe the new smilies are evil :(

I would kill for a laptop that could last that long on its battery. My laptop doesnt even manage an hour when its doing nothing; when i use PDN or something, it barely scrapes 30 mins.. :(

Merry Christmas

Both laptops I've owned have rapidly descended into the ten minute realm of battery life. :-(

Me, too. And my current one is usually pretty much good enough for that.

Awesome.

Yep, they're using the Canvas HTML element (Wiki this). I've never used it, but I've heard of something else pretty cool recently that's completely based on Canvas: Bespin.

I thought it was that at first, but when I searched the source code for

Check out the page in-browser with something like Firebug:

canvas.png

They're adding it with the mariokart.min.js script. Search that for "canvas", and you'll find:

var S=document.createElement("canvas");

Know what would be REALLY awesome?

Adding in some PHP.

No, stick with me. In PHP, you code an upload script allowing you to bring your own images into the equation. Then you modify the JS to dynamically load the sprites when the game is loaded.

Imagine- I can race CMD! Awesome.

Then you add in some functionality allowing you to save and submit best times...then I can beat CMD. And prove it.

And all of it done without once opening Flash.
