Soarer's Converter Programming Help Thread
« on: Tue, 24 June 2014, 20:53:09 »
I have been contacted by another member with programming questions about the software.
This is far outside my realm of expertise, I am mostly a mechanic.

Soarer seems to be on holiday, or something. I am sure that these are topics that he could address without an effort, but I will put them out there for anybody to respond to.


Do you know if it is possible for Soarer's Converter to emulate "turbo mode" or "rapid fire"? 
So, for example, if I wanted A to rapid fire, I would hold down the A key, and have the macro be that A is emulated as pressed, then have a 200 millisecond delay, then go back to an A press and back to a 200 millisecond delay, and have this loop forever until the A key is actually released.

Another thing that makes no sense to me is layerblock.  I even copied and pasted the sample code in Soarer's instructions into the configuration file and didn't see any change in function at all.

I'm also wondering if there are some hidden commands that aren't listed since in the example code that Soarer has posted, there's an "onbreak" command which actually does what you think it would (when the key is released, perform the next command), but is not listed in the actual list of commands.

Were our leaders just stupid? Well, maybe. But there’s a deeper explanation of the profoundly self-destructive behavior of Trump and his allies: They were all members of America’s cult of selfishness. You see, the modern US right is committed to the proposition that greed is good, that we’re all better off when individuals engage in the untrammeled pursuit of self-interest. In their vision, unrestricted profit maximization by businesses and unregulated consumer choice is the recipe for a good society.
Support for this proposition is, if anything, more emotional than intellectual. I’ve long been struck by the intensity of right-wing anger against relatively trivial regulations, like bans on phosphates in detergent and efficiency standards for light bulbs. It’s the principle of the thing: Many on the right are enraged at any suggestion that their actions should take other people’s welfare into account. This rage is sometimes portrayed as love of freedom. But people who insist on the right to pollute are notably unbothered by, say, federal agents tear-gassing peaceful protesters. What they call “freedom” is actually absence of responsibility.
Rational policy in a pandemic, however, is all about taking responsibility. The main reason you shouldn’t go to a bar and should wear a mask isn’t self-protection, although that’s part of it; the point is that congregating in noisy, crowded spaces or exhaling droplets into shared air puts others at risk. And that’s the kind of thing America’s right just hates, hates to hear. Anger at any suggestion of social responsibility also helps explain the looming fiscal catastrophe.  – Paul Krugman 2020-07-28 NYT
