I know that i was able to get a shade of blue using xLibs contrast change, and by changing it rabidly from max to min and back again.  I dont think its equivalent to the BSOD.

I think it is BSOD that is showing up, but it shows up for a so short amount of time that even if you trigger it 50 times a second, it won't ever match the intense blue a static BSOD can produce, or as much damage it can cause.

Okay, I was reading through page 25 or so of the bug reports thing and would like to say that I'm NOT gone... I just have only a 90-minute slot in which to use the computer.
Example below.

Anyways, I've tried it again and I've noticed the screen kind of fluctuates.

Below is the source for any brave souls who wish to try it.
great...5 minutes now...

ouch this sucks you are limited this much on computer usage x.x

I assume it's parental filter, right?

By fluctuate, do you mean there is some sort of wave effect or something like in Ikkerens video at http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=3505.0;attach=1750 ?

oh ok. Well, I never accessed a library computer before in hi school because early in hi school they had Windows 3.1 and no internet (I believe they had Encarta), later they had decent computers (for the time) but only 3 and they were always taken. In College they just required your student ID and there were no filter at all :P

Yeah, libraries suck.  I just try to avoid using one of the PC's at my parent's house because they'd probably start filtering/blocking almost everything...that's what they did to my brother.
Anyways, by 'fluctuate' I don't mean waves, but the whole screen still changing contrast for a second or two before settling to a neutral shade.  Think of it like plucking a rubber band and it vibrates for a minute or so.  The contrast level 'vibrates' for a bit before settling.

I'll try to get a video of it soon (once I find my SD card for the camera).

Btw Darl181 could you repost a new version of your sound program from the other page? No one got able to send it to an emulator or their calc. It seems corrupted :(

EDIT: oops it was in another topic. Anyway check Re: Your Projects - Post and Critique too

(and that sucks about parents blocking everything, it reminds me SirCmpwn parents x.x. The worst part with Sir is how Omnimaga is blocked at school and libraries, though)

Oh, he used proxies I believe, but if I remember, they can detect them and if they catch you you're in deep trouble, or they block them one after another. Not to mention many proxies won't let you login on most sites.

I might be able to use a proxy if, when I used a home computer, my parents (stepdad especially) blocked things.
1) My parents don't even know I'm doing any programming or whatsoever with a calculator
2) Even when I'm using powerpoint or word for some big school project he keeps on "ckecking up on my progress".  Obviously he's sucpicious of something, or he's just a control freak.
I might just get a netbook and encrypt the whole thing, but my stepdad periodically goes through my backpack about once every two-three months.
Backpack lock: that would be pretty much asking him to go through it.

Best plan for me is to just avoid using home computers altogether, and use those in the library.
Omnimaga is blocked at my school as well, I guess some idiot googling 'online games' found the arcade and the school district discovered it.

Aaah ok I see x.x

Well the thing with Omni is that it's a lot game-oriented so this is inevitable it will get blocked at most places.

IMHO I would watch out what I do on the home computers if I was you. if there is anything that they can discover, don't do it. If they are illiterate about other things, then I guess you're fine. Just remember to clear suspicious site links from your browsing history from time to time if you can.

I try.
Also, some versions of internet explorer have something called InPrivate browsing which I use when possible.

That would be newer versions. Chrome supports a very similar feature, while Firefox forces you to mask your whole session at a time. (I don't use Opera or other browsers)
Is there any hope of this returning to topic? :P
