Happy Europe week !

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europe_Day

There are two separate designations of Europe Day: 5 May for the Council of Europe, and 9 May for the European Union (EU).

... so fuck it. Europe week.

To celebrate the first ever Europe week, you can have the next two days off work. Enjoy !

Is this enlargement thing a painful step in the right direction or diluting the wealth & prosperity we have with no real benefit ?

(hence uk public opinion in the direction of f-this - we're outta here) ?

nope. every day is fucking hell I hate europe & how much it costs us & fuck I hate all those frenchies & krauts telling us what to do we're leaving day.

example:

'tis europe (part 1 of 2) day today.

BBC news front page : http://news.bbc.co.uk

not a positive word. not one. it's not even acknowledged. there will be no fireworks or parties or concerts or anything. again. it doesn't exist.

Brits are only interested in what wicky and fucking bianca are getting up to in the east end of London.

oh and fuck we're about to get invaded by romanians & bulgarians who will be coming over to take all the jobs the poles are doing that the brits can't be arsed getting out of bed for day.

and they still want to make the fucking eu bigger.

imagine if you removed the fence between the south west & mexico & just let anyone come in if they felt like it AND claim free health care, benefits, etc. that's pretty much what's happening over here & there's some understandable objections. all well & good saying lets help out the poor people, but the better off don't want to pay for it or deal with the social change issues that arise.

I actually got insulted by some faggot yesterday in a game because of the way germany deals with european politics, when he realized I was german. Like screaming at a grain of sand because you don't like the beach.

Nevertheless: Yay, Europe!

never get low & slow & out of ideas

it's more serious than that. there's a real chance the UK could exit the EU.

now you could say, fuck it, leave if you want, but remember we're also a significant net contributor to the budget so it's going to make things a lot harder for you if we leave. what can be done to make brits warm to the idea of a more integrated political union ?

'murica has an effective, consentual political union with a single currency & (for the most part) single language & unified culture.

the problem here is cultural & language differences. we just don't feel the same. cultural diversity is great but there's got to be some common ground or there's no sense of inclusion.

guess the common ground is sport. mainly football. for those in 'murica, this is a game you play by hitting a ball with your foot.
hence the term foot-ball.

You're not going to change the world from sitting in front of your PC, AS. If politics is your thing, get out there and be a politician. If programming is your thing, sit at home and be a programmer.

On a related note:

the arab spring which has changed a substantial part of the world was largely driven by social media - ie. people tapping away on keyboards.

my thing is largely tech but our tech opens up new media opportunities. we'll have our own media portal soon. just doing a little practicing. sorry if you find this tedious.

got a bit of interest in politics but its a side issue not my primary focus. kind of spin them all together.

this is probably ot for maxforums but until our stuff is up & running got my soapbox here.

will relocate it as can imagine this is tedious if you just come here for max related stuff which this isn't.

apologies.

to address your point. they still haven't pulled their finger out of their arse yet so funding still denied.

sounds to me like misfeasance in public office but not a lawyer either.

dull tedious legal link :

misfeasance in public office

will put in a claim for an eu grant soon & a kickstarter application but still want to polish a little more first.

It's the first time in about 200 billions of years that there hasn't been a war between two european countries (members of the EU) for three generations in a row. Which was the original motivation.
That alone...

>>a unique tech platform

Really? We were making non-interactive, very basic 3D environments 20 years ago.

that was nice for you.

we're making interactive advanced online 3D environments today.

this webpage. it's just a fucking texture map. and it's interactive.

hence the term interactive procedural texture.

our current examples are just prototype art for testing. will upgrade as & when circumstances permit.

should probably drop tech for a while & switch to finance to sort that out.

If EU serves us as a reason not to start killing each other I say let all European countries become it's members! Shame that the reason is even needed though...

On a side note. Do you know that the new XBox will be called Infinity?

Animation?
Accesible scripting language?
Collision detection?
Deformable meshes?
Advanced lighting?
Concurent Multi-user?

Your best bet is to sue Microsoft for using the Infinity logo.
