Thanks for the support guys. I've made an appointment to see my GP tomorrow afternoon and hopefully get some help in one form or another. Next up on the to do list for the day is trying to smooth things over with the girlfriend when she comes back this evening.

so I didn't how or where to talk about this, but I've spent a fair amount of time on the GB forums over the years and it's one of the few places I'm comfortable talking about this.

I'm 26 and for the last few months my general moods have been changing. Starting around June I began to get panic attacks related to my summer job, I went to a therapist in July to try to seek help with these and for the most part it helped. In August when I started my second year of med school I was definitely more stressed, but although I came close to a panic attack multiple times, I never actually experienced one. However since around the middle of August, I've been experiencing these periods of just feeling down, I can't really describe it, but it's like all my self doubts and negative emotions are magnified to an extreme degree and even though things are going well (not amazing, not terrible) it feels like doing anything is pointless, sometimes it's like I'm bored with everything, sometimes I just feel sad.

These feelings aren't constant, and when things are going well, the nagging self doubts are there, but I can deal with them, but in times of stress (such as this week when I have an exam on tomorrow) it's like I go off the deep end, I become extremely negative and irritable. I'm living with my girlfriend whom I love deeply (and who is in the same class as me) and it's starting to affect her significantly. She suffers from GAD but is able to cope, unless I go into one of these moods which then causes her extreme stress and I suspect is making her question whether this relationship is good for her. She mentioned today that after a period of 10 days of being good, this week has left her really worried that I might permanently end up like this, and said it's becoming depressing to be around me. I think that sleep is playing a huge role here, because for the last few days (of which I've been feeling down) I haven't been able to get a decent nights sleep (I either can't fall asleep or I wake up in the middle of the night and struggle to get back to sleep).

I'm worried that this is going damage or end our relationship, which scares me.

So I guess the point of this whole rambling topic is do any of you duders or duderettes have any experience with anything similar to this? Do you think it sounds like depression? How have you coped with your experiences and do you have any advice for me?

Isn't the problem that the "operation" variable isn't changed from "o", so that even though you exit the do-while loop you're still stuck in the outer while loop which just sends you back into the do-while loop.

This. That first while loop is redundant anyway. Looks like a copy/paste error

It's been a long day and I haven't coded in quite some time, but you're redeclaring variables inside the if(operation="o") section, that can cause some interesting scope errors iirc. Also have you tried printing out the individual values of the outflow, inflow_max,min and threshold? Are the values as you would expect?

A Warhound walks into a Protoss bar... Where's the counter?


Warhound has been removed in the current HoS patch. Does anyone know if the Battlecruiser got changed at all? I thought they had planned to give it a cooldown based speed boost, but I can't find anything about it since the beta went live.

Just lost 26k and 3 humanity. Got to that part in Anor Londo where the two knights are firing those big arrows at you while you have to run at them. Got to the one on the left, and had him down to like two more hits when the other guy suddenly gains line of sight and fires me off the roof. On the way back, I got stuck on a piece of geometry just when you're right between the two of them so I lasted all of 2 seconds. I'm pretty sure there's something I'm missing on this part...

@baldgye: Alright, thanks for the clarification. Not too sure I'll get to be a part of it, but I guess installing it as a precaution is better than not.

There's this new option that caught my attention:

an option at start, automatically Rally to Minerals, & starting Workers also follow that rally (default on)

If I'm understanding this right, it seems more efficient than not, so it's something that I envision enabling at all times.

yup... watching streams it seems it sends your workers to mine the instant the game starts... which kinda sucks.. IMO faster players should have an early advantage over slower players...

Given that it's a once-off action on which your opponent can have no influence over you, I really don't mind this switch. It's not like trying to maintain worker production without queuing which is easy enough at the beginning, but as you have more and more on your plate due to larger/more bases and attacks from the opponent it becomes much easier to slip up.

@FluxWaveZ Oops, had no idea there was a thread about this already, my bad!

Ohh cool thanks! I'm hoping Brad and the GB crew will do something with this, the first beta stream is one of my favourite things that's been done on the site.
