Okay, we really should start thinking on a schedule for these classes, if no one else wants to, I'll host the first class and see how I do. I might change the material though to use one of my AddOns since I've never actually used Coins and I might get to a point where I'm "Ah, er ... I wonder what that actually does?", "Aren't you the assigned 'teacher' here?", "... probably."
Anyway, I'd give it a shot. Any time after 5PM GMT is good for me. So I'm thinking I'll try and do something at 6PM GMT tomorrow? What would be the ideal timeframe for the rest of you?
That's cool, Rowne. I won't be able to help this round if it's going to be that soon. I have too much schoolwork this week. My time will be very limited until the weekend. I can try to answer questions if you have any. Make sure you look at my version of ChatScroll too to get an idea of what has changed. Coins is now a bit outdated from new standards. I'll update it and the manual when I get time.
I've already checked that, and those are all Ascend, not coins =P
From Class 3:
(19:01:07) Random: wats the link for the addon we are being forced to use to learn again? =P
(19:01:13) Random: I always forget to save it
(19:01:18) Rowne: http://mastaile.mine.nu/Ascend.txt
(19:01:24) Rowne: We could start over and use Coins but ...
(19:01:27) Rowne: I don't know Coins.
(19:01:29) Rowne: I've never used it.
(19:01:37) kergoth: we're on section C, then?
(19:01:38) Stylpe: screw coins
(19:01:42) illitrate: pancakes - http://homepage.mac.com/illitrate_23/food/PhotoAlbum8.html
(19:01:43) Random: but coins is all pretty and commented
(19:01:55) Rowne: Random: After Ascend, I'll do Coins, okay?
(19:01:58) Rowne: That's a promise.
(19:02:07) Rowne: I'll look into it, read up on it, learn it then teach a more basic class.
(19:02:18) Random: ok:)
I didnt learn anything from it. I leanrt from taking a (basic) addon and disecting it and changing things to see what it does. where there was Ace:print('foo') i'd put Ace:print('bar') and I was happy (this is fictional). Gradually moving on to 'harder' things, I tried to make something I had in my mind. It worked. It still works (1.8->1.10) Hurray!
