I'm called magicman here, but my real name is Joeri van Eekelen and I'm from The Netherlands.

I'm 37 years old and currently being a programmer who's involved in social housing software.

My interest in Dink goes off and on. It is currently off. Check back later. I kinda like sourcediving into the Dink engine, which is an awesome way at figuring out why some unexpected behaviour occurs.

Scripting techniques rant
Some Notepad++ Python scripts
Error in map_tile(); documentation.
Why void touch( void ) freezes, void die( void ) fails to complete, and you need wait(1) in loops.
About external(), spawn(), procedure calls, run_script_by_number.

For those interested, you can read my Dinkerview from early 2014.

Eh? And I was sure I did the things correctly.

Though this still doesn't explain why it crashes with wait(1);. A 'normal' infinite loop (as I used in cooltext, for example) works just fine with wait(1); (or say_stop for that matter, it's just the fact that a script pauses for a moment, right?)

Thanks for the info about the console. Didn't know that
