UnCircle.Me says UnCircle Zuckerberg

We've tried this before but we'll do it again. There is no reason someone with 606,477 followers, who has not made one post, should have that many followers. Let's take this a little at a time. Can we get him below 600K before the weekend is over? Let's help +Snoop Dogg take over the #3 spot!

Share this and include the tag #uncirclezuck in your post and let's see what we can do!

Go here to UnCircle him: http://goo.gl/OszeF

(note: I do not have anything personal against him or FB at all, I just don't see why his name should be hogging up a spot on the top 3 for no reason)

This is a Google+ Ripple test.

You need to reshare this publicly for it to work!

The more reshares the more interesting the test will be.

This will be posted on imSocial.com after we complete the test.

Other than SourceMate and version control, does anyone know of any good Flash Builder 4.5 plugins?

Trying to find a room in a shared house in Chiswick before I start my new job at the end of October means no time spent on the rest client the past couple of weekends. Will have to do some in the evenings this week, want to get it out there! :)

Just been talking about null coalescence and the ternary operator with a workmate. Realised partway through that they could be combined and produce absolute monstrosities. A simple and horrible example would be this:

myVar:String = a < b ? a : b < c ? b : c < d ? d : e > f ? g || h || i || k || "default";

Yeah, my personal rule is no more than one ternary on a line. It's a big abuse magnet.

I think I'll be jumping on this bandwagon too

As much as I love AS3 and AIR, I think I'm going to head down the same path that +Jesse Freeman is considering, C# and Unity, because it seems like an extremely powerful and stable combination for someone like myself who wants to develop games professionally, not just create casual games as a hobby. If I'm going to do this then I must make a decision now about the technologies I want to use, and not fart around waiting to see how things pan out in the HTML/JS and AS3/AIR worlds.

Again, I love working with AS3 and AIR, and I do believe they will be around for a long time but C# and Unity are game development powerhouses and they can reach more gaming devices (including consoles) than AIR currently can.

My stomach is actually rolling over while I type this but I feel this is realistically the best move for me to make - the following image definitely sums up my future in the game development world, for better or worse ...

Unity I understand... C# I do not.

I just got a response from a support request to a certain unnamed company. It just said "Helol Adam"

.. and nothing else.

Yes, they did spell the only word other than my name wrong.

This could be game-changing for Flash/Flex developers.. JetBrains now make a specific IDE for Flash/Flex/AIR devs, which probably means we can use their insanely good static code analysis. First release comes with integrated debugger, profiler and unit test runner!?!!

Just read some more of AdvancED ActionScript 3.0: Design Patterns - In the second chapter now and it's still a damn good book, but it doesn't say 'advanced' lightly if anyone else is looking at it. It goes full on low level details from early on, so you'll need to be an advanced user to get the best out of the book.

I'll be getting a hard copy as soon as I see it available. I think it's going to be on my desk as reference for a good few years!

Incidentally, does anyone on here know any advanced AS3 books they would recommend? Any aspect/tech is fine, I'm just looking to really increase my knowledge at the moment!

+Rob Dodson I haven't read them yet, but have been planning to read the Foundation ActionScript 3.0 Animation: Making Things Move! book for a while now. Didn't realise there was an advanced sequel, thanks!
