51 got pretty far at changing how the card engine for my card game is structured.

No longer is the engine sitting in one big file and the amount of parameters that cards needed also shrunk, as well as the amount of global functions. Problem is: it throws an error now :(

50 That's always fun. I had a weird issues yesterday where something broke, I reverted to earlier versions, it stayed broke, then just waited, and it all fixed itself, so... ???

51 ah, the good old "it suddenly worked, no idea why" thing.

"fun" fact: I've gotten to the point where I'm using so many functions that return functions that lua thinks tail call recursion happened. Giving stack traces like
Code:
\t(...tail calls...)
\t[string \"return {...\"]:11: in field \'func\'
\t./lua/engine/turn.lua:13: in local \'card\'
\t./lua/engine/turn.lua:70: in function \'engine/turn\'
\t(...tail calls...)"',
Oh well, a weird stacktrace is a small price to pay for tailcall optimizations. It is a shame that so few languages implement that kind of optimization :(

49. It’s always fun when something just fixes itself. I’ve had that for an entire piece of analytical equipment before.

51. It was.

*hears worrying rattle*

*worrying rattle stops*

"Uh oh, has it just broken?"

*checks it*

"Oh. No, its just... working. Huh."

51 lua does start from 1 but if you ask me, it doesn't really matter. Also, lua has a lot of other good stuff going for it. Especially if you need to embed another language as it is actually insanely fast and small.
