In my headcanon, Hannah Montana was a brilliant x86 assembly programmer on the down low. Hey you never know, leading double lives was her specialty right?

    • 1:48 scan: Version 40 QR Code can contain up to 1852 chars. A QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) that is designed to be read by smartphones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text, a URL, or other data. Created by Toyota subsidiary Denso Wave in 1994, the QR code is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes. The QR code was designed to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed. The technology has seen frequent use in Japan and South Korea; the United Kingdom is the seventh-largest national consumer of QR codes. Although initially used for tracking parts in vehicle manufacturing, QR codes now are used in a much broader context, including both commercial tracking applications and convenience-oriented applications aimed at mobile phone users (termed mobile tagging). QR codes may be used to display text to the user, to add a vCard contact to the user's device, to open a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), or to compose an e-mail or text message. Users can generate and print their own QR codes for others to scan and use by visiting one of several paid and free QR code generating sites or apps.

  • turn CSGO without maps and we will add maps by ourselves.

  • Being optimistic, we can also store a lot of our history, science in these QR codes and exchange them with the aliens. Like hey here's all we've known so far, scan these to know and let me scan yours now lol.

  • Does anyone here have Dyslexia they overcome to code? I went to school for it in highschool but found the inability to see or find my mistakes too much to overcome, now I dont code and do nothing and its starting to bother me :/ Id love to get back into coding and pursue it but Im so worried about the dyslexia becoming a problem again.

  • Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

  • I thought you'd choose a game like Sonic The Hedgehog or something that cool not something that boring SNAKE. An because of that I'll have to use my OP card "SNAKE", my card character are your channel you lose, next time make a bigger game, so when the contagious disease ends and i go back to school i can bring with me a paper with the qr code that holds an interesting game, since the school's computers not connected to the wifi nor new. I hope you learned next video what will you do. And don't worry if the qr code image was small for an A4 paper, I can take other options.

  • Easy : Scan one single QR code to build your game. (Done) Normal : Scan multiple QR codes to build a larger game. Hard : Create an ANIMATED video of QR codes being displayed in a screen, you will need a program that scan/store/decode the lines of code and bind them together, every frame contains one single QR code, if the camera captures 30FPS that will be equal to 30 QR codes per ONE second (1,5Mb x 30) = 45Mb per s econd you will need to process 22.2 seconds video to build a 1GB game & you can do a lot with that.
