Could be, probably just more an American saying (Anyone else from America heard the phrase "I'm just giving you crap," before?). Well again, I am sorry for the misunderstanding.

@AP, in the future, I wonder if you could maybe check my CSS to make sure I did not do anything wrong that could cause potential issues in some browsers, and maybe my index.template.php files of the custom themes to get rid of the double-banner code (when CSS doesn't load fast, you see two Omnimaga banners at the top then one dissapears. It was because in 2008 I wanted to get rid of the default SMF infobox like you see on http://www.mtv-music-generator.com and tr1p1ea did it in a quite hackish way (I think by hiding one of the banner through CSS x.x). It' snot a big hurry, though. It might be good to test on one skin at once, too, in case.

You don't need to worry about the CSS. All browsers handle everything that CSS can do the same way. It's Javascript that can have compatibility issues.

As for the banner issue, I haven't seen that happen to me at all before. I can look at the index.template.php file though and see if I can see what may be causing it.

Well I was still a bit worried if I wrote my CSS properly. I know some mistakes in CSS can cause crap to happen in some browsers. For the banner issue it's because of the weird way we inserted the modified banner. We couldn,t figure out a way to get rid of the other, so we just changed its css properties to be hidden and added a brand new one.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Hm... which theme is this happening on? (or is it happening on all of them?)

all of them (except the default one that looks like 2008 but that nobody can see except admins)

When making the new themes I just copied the php files over.

So, been updating this to what I have been seeing. I've added all of Hot_Dog's new assembly tutorials along with a couple things. Any other ones that anyone can think of? Really would love a great list of these :)

I will try to see what I have in my huge list of links (it should be 100KB of pure text right now if I put all together (?)).

One of the things I love for computer and web stuff is seeing some technique I don't know and search how to do it.

On the other side in TI-BASIC I prefer to experiment it myself until I learn it. I learned how to use matrices and lists commands this way. :)
Your first steps in programming can be a fun challenge (for me it was, but some people might have worse experiences).

Sweet, thanks :)

And ya, I agree. Learning stuff on your own is really a good way to learn and such. I try to only really ask for help when I can't figure something out or something like that.

So lately (well not really lately...but ya) I have noticed that I have been having trouble reading a lot of the Axe discussions because people are getting into bytes, bits, nibbles, etc. etc. etc. I could be the only one here (though I doubt it) but I just don't quite understand that stuff because I haven't really found good places to understand them or I haven't fully understood what people meant when trying to describe what they mean. Does anyone have good links, book/e-book suggestions, tutorials, explanations, anything really that could help me and other people like me to help understand those concepts?

One reason I'm asking this is because I'm one of those people who doesn't like to use code just because it works, I like to understand it and know how it works and why. (Ex: When I first experienced the use of max( and min( in movement code I literally spent a few minutes breaking it down to see how it worked because it bugged me :P)

Any help is greatly appreciated :)

i completely second meishe91. i still remember picking apart in BASIC why If max(A={1,2,3 worked only if A was 1 2 or 3. anyway, i am also interested in good explanations or tutorials on pointers, memory addresses, bytes, hexadecimal storage, RLE and other types of compression for maps, etc. anywhere you learned something from searching online, please share it

Ya, I still don't completely understand that one, mainly because I haven't really looked at it though :P.

Ya, all that stuff I would like to have links to so people can learn more about all this stuff:
-Bytes, Bits, Nibbles, Half-Byte, etc.
-Memory Locations and Use and all that
-Pointers
-Hexadecimal Storage
-All Types of Compression (Axe and TI-BASIC would be awesome)
-The Math Behind the Concepts
-Etc.

Again, thank you everyone who manages to find something :)

I think i could write a pretty good tutorial on RunLengthEncoding.  I am very familiar with it since i "invented" it by myself way back when i made the original Portal (I didnt invent it :P But i came up with the idea on my own).

Oh, so that's what RLE stands for haha. That'd be awesome :) Any news on some of the other tutorials you were working on?
