I'd like to make this thread to propose the idea of recording some of the most memorable, interesting, educational and funny moments in the stream. Well, all the streams are interesting and educational and all, but there's always those moments where Casey rants about things, or get inspired and explain something in a very beautiful way or whatever... Just something you think is worth to be a standalone 2-10 minutes video.

I think it's a good because:
0- Some of this stuff is frequently asked questions, so it's nice to put them all in one place for others to see it.
1- A single goto-place for Epic Casey rants!
2- Some of this stuff I find is very motivational, it's good to watch them again from time to time.
3- Since the stream is about an hour and a half long, tons of really useful Casey goodness/information/tips/advice is embedded but would be less obvious as to where that information is, which stream, what time etc (even though there are time annotations in 'some' of the videos). Having them accessible from one place is convenient.

I personally enjoy Casey's rants cause I can closely relate and know exactly where he's coming from, it's like he's speaking what's on my mind sometimes :D

Here are some of my favorites:

- Why start from scratch vs Using an engine? Why reinvent the wheel?
- Project State Development | Exploration based Design | OOP Joke
- Modern Programming Conventions
- new vs delete | struct vs class | How to get fired
- Private Data & Getters/Setters (Epic rant!)
- Unity Builds | Compiation Units
- Error Handling

Basically whenever he reviews old code he wrote quickly that turned out really good and impresses himself for a moment. This almost always initiates a micro rant on how, and or, why the state of computing at large is in terrible condition. C++ is mentioned at least 5 times.

I can't seem to see the video links posted recently (all I see is a blank post). Is it just my bad internet or some new forum policy?

It's because the site now defaults to https, while the youtube embeds are http.

If you use Chrome, install HTTPS Everywhere extensions. It will force browser to access sites over HTTPS whenever HTTPS is available (like for youtube). This will make embedded youtube videos work here. And it will increase security for your browser.

I am using Chrome on Ubuntu and the HTTPS Everywhere does not make the videos work here. :/

Chrome on Windows here with https Everywhere and I'm having the same issue.

Disabling the plugin had no effect on the issue.

This is what the site is converting urls to, adding the "s" in https in the inspector makes the embedded video magically work. (MODS: Fix to issue here!!) probably just have to change a setting in a youtube embed plugin for the forum.

edit: I now see that Sizik actually wrote this above.

The moment I keep remember is the fist time he really cursed out of shock and annoyance, it caught me so off guard I laughed out loud in real life, in a appartment containing only me. (I was using a headset so the only noise a NSA bug would have heard would be my shocked laughter after hours of just typing and sipping coffee or water noises.)

can't remember the episode number but it was probably in the pre 50s.
