Pinned toot

Just, you know, for keeping track... (as of 2019)

I've got three grandchildren:

Eliza - 8 years old
Esmé - 6 years old
Rupert - 4 years old

And four great-nieces:

Jessica - 11 years old
Annabel - 8 years old
Elena - 5 years old
Madison - 1 year old

My rules regarding on :

I have never, and will never post photos of any children on any form of social media, with one obvious exception!

See my avatar? That's me when I was much younger, and had slightly more hair.

That image, of _me_, is the only exception to my rules!

So when I talk about my grandchildren and great-nieces you're just going to have to use your imagination since no pictures, of them, will be forthcoming!:*

Grandchildren are coming early tomorrow, with puppy. They are on half-term this week. So no time tomorrow either. Hope the weather is good at least in the morning as I can pop them to the park to run off some energy. Forecast for later in the day is _lots_ of rain ):*

Not that I have time to build it again tonight, but I've cleared the CMakeCache.txt file and re-run cmake in my build directory, ready for when I do have some time (:*

That's interesting, as of the latest commit (4 hours ago) on the master branch the application has now moved from using 2.7 to Python 3.5 cf. Quite speedy considering it's not been all that long since it was announced that Python 2 was being sunset (or whatever the expression is/was).

Apparently some public servants are still unable to tell the difference between, 'checking on the welfare of someone', and 'shooting to kill them'.

Lesson to learn...

Apparently save games for the XboxOne console are tied to the controller you are using when they get saved.

That's a new one on me, why would a console maker do that?

s out I'd wasted my time Friday, but at least the children still had their saved game and I had mine. - 3/3

Spent the rest of Friday playing through from the start of the game, desperately trying to get it back to where the grandchildren had got to, so I could create a new save point for them. Game didn't save again! Bugger!

Then had a thought, when playing Thursday night I was using one controller, while I'd been using a different one on the Friday. So turned the console off and turned it back on with the original controller and this time the original save games were found. So, it tur - 2/3

I was over at son's house puppy-sitting on Friday, went over Thursday evening. Usual routine is to play on the XBox One quietly once everyone else is in bed upstairs.

So that's what I did.

Following morning having gotten the grandchildren off to school, I turned the console on and went to carry on playing the game, Lego Batman 3, only to discover no save files existed. Odd, it was saving fine Thursday night. Assumed I just had accidentally done something when I switched it off.
- 1/3

Messing about with this again does throw up one thing: The app should refuse to start if it is already running, to save on possible duplicate, though unlisted, toots... Hmmm, something for another day. Nos da¡;*

And no, I won't be posting a video of me dancing (;*

That would be too much to inflict on the Fediverse.

Good night one and all (:*

Off to bed now, though I might just have a weird dance to ...

Glad that's working again, also cleaned up the permissions, so it can only post a status, and upload media.
