Hey, gang!

It's 11:25am California time, and my flight to Japan should have taken off 25 minutes ago, but at 3am I got an email from United saying it was cancelled. Luckily I hadn't finished packing yet, so I was awake to see it, and called them in time to get seats on tomorrow's flight.

I'm really tired.

How can it just be cancelled? And were you even awake at 3am?!

I'm also totally not a Snap! dev.

Something wrong with the airplane. All things considered, I'm glad they found the problem at 3am instead of noon.

And were you even awake at 3am?!

Still packing. I'm not very good at it, and we (my son Heath is coming) did some last-minute clothes shopping in the evening.

I'm also totally not a Snap! dev.

Yes you are. You're developing snap!kurt and snap!blocks2. (Hint.)

EDIT: Anyway, if we called it the “teasing nXIII thread” it'd probably get shut down by the ST.

(I love how “the teasing nXIII thread” is self-fulfilling!)

Oh dear.

You're developing snap!kurt and snap!blocks2.
I suppose so Though I'm hoping Hardmath will write the Snap!-related parts…

Dang, snap!blocks2 is an awkward name.

“self-fulfilling”?

EDIT: dang, first few hours and I'm already using one smiley per line…

Can Snap! open the BYOB 3.1.1 .ypr files? Also, where are the projects stored? (I can't find them >.<)

I do, in fact, have my own site; it's here.
I'm also working on a thing called Fetch. Look at it here!

Sure. Imagine you're nXIII and you keep seeing references to “teasing nXIII.” Wouldn't you feel teased?

Yes, except that the sprite-OOP related features of 3.1 aren't in Snap! yet. (That'll be 4.1.) File icon in toolbar, choose “Import…” from the menu, open your file. Or just drag the file onto the Snap! window. (Thanks to nXIII for this feature!)

Also, where are the projects stored?

There are three different ways to save a project.

1. In rhe “File>Save as…” dialog, if the “Browser” button at the left is lit, then the project is saved in your browser's localstore, which is a sandboxed pseudo-filesystem accessible only from the same browser, same user, same web site. (Basically it's a kind of cookie.)

2. If instead the “Cloud” button is lit, then the project is saved on the Snap! cloud server (hosted by MioSoft). This works only after you create an account by clicking the cloud icon on the toolbar.

3. If you choose “File>Export project…” then a new tab is opened in your browser containing your project in XML, which you can then use the browser's “Save as…” feature to save as an ordinary local file. This two-step process is awkward, but it's the only way Javascript lets us do it. For your protection.

When I open my project I get an error: ‘Load failed: TypeError: Cannot call method ’setContents' of undefined'

This is importing a BYOB3 project? You're probably using a feature we haven't recreated yet. If you post your ypr someplace I'll look at it.

EDIT: @nXIII, @Jens: This isn't a very perspicuous error message…

Nice! you can cheat and trick the parser by putting

(putting a [] between the “–”

EDIT: Ninja'd! although Math's way doesn't work…
EDIT: Ok, Math's way works now.

Yay, 2.0 thread.

I guess I equated the term ‘dev’ with ‘people who have actually contributed to the Snap! code base.’

Also, did you change your user icon, or is it just my phone being weird?

It's yout eyes… Just kidding. Yeah, I got tired of seeing my face so much, and I was tired and bored, so I took another shot from that session and Photoshopped it until it was just recognizable.

Someday I'll work up some creativity and make a brilliant iconic statement of who I am…
