    Sucks that your panel was canceled!!!

    I do hope you will still come!  Would love to celebrate and enjoy a moment with you, indeed.

    Best, Alex

     Sadly I'm not going to make it. Really bummed out about that. I would have loved to see everyone.



  • Hey Folks,

    Here's the latest: during night, one of the beta testers discovered that very tiny numbers near zero (e.g., 0.000000009) would display in Isadora as "+1e-9". This discovery led the the discovery of another (and much worse) problem: enter a number with enough decimal points, and it will show up as completely the wrong number, e.g., enter .123412341234 into a Calculator actor and it would come think you entered .7239. :-(

    These are just two examples of things that delay us. I've made the fixes and done so as carefully as I can, but now we have go through a series of tests to ensure that the fix didn't create some other different bug. The first of of these two I described is used by every part of the program that draws a number. So we've got to be sure it's ok.

    This small example pretty much sums up the last year of our work here.

    We're testing again... I'll update here as soon as I know more.

    I have seen this bug a couple of times too. Lets hope it is not an endemic issue

  • @mark Surely thats why its called 'A Creativity Server' - its a feature not a bug ;) 

    Seriously though - always better to fix anything you can while very small numbers of people are using it. Hope you get there soon, but you are right to wait until you are as confident as you can be

     At least your are waaaaaaaaay beyond fixing 666 bugs, so things can only go right. ✌



  • @barneybroomer

    Thanks Barney for finding that obscure bug. But it's fixed now and we just threw the switch, as in it's out there.

    Best Wishes,
    Mark

     It's fixed in the final release Russel. ;-)



  • @catfergusson @Aolis and thers.

    OK -- the plans have changed again. I'm going to Prague for 2 days of the PQ -- 14th and 15th, leaving on 16th.

    Let's find each other. PM me on FB and we can exchange phone numbers.

    Best Wishes,

    Mark
