A Sober Look at the Apocalypse

Posted by burritoincognito On January - 28 - 2009

Over at the Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies INC.  (FAMSI),  Mark Van Stone Takes an interesting look at the Mayan prophecy of the end of the world…it isn’t your stereotypically sensational view of the date December 21, 2012, which has been cast as the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar.  It’s the honest scholarly view of what we ACTUALLY know about what the Mayans believed.  If you’re in to history or into apocalyptic things in general, take a look.

    Hi, Tom.Nope, no C code generated… but as Rick metonins, the online tutorials are visual with commentary and are very well done.As for seeing a block dropped on a screen, you’re correct – you’re missing the configuration panel settings for that block. Not all blocks have items to be configured (STOP block, for example), and some have quite a bit to play with… and this isn’t counting what you can do with the data hub and data ports using wires.Don’t worry about getting overwhelmed… NXT-G is fairly easy to figure out – most of us who were playing with the beta software had very little documentation to start with (basically the HELP screens that come with the software) – so your best bet is to learn like we did and just experiment with each block and figure out what the settings do… some will surprise you.Jim
