Re: How Low Can I Go?

in reply to How Low Can I Go?

0 isn't a node_id (we prefer the underscore). IDs in our little universe start at 1, so we don't have to be bothered to worry about exists-but-false, so node_id=0 is equivalent to not giving a node ID at all, so you end up at the default node, which happens to be 131, not terribly low at all.

17 is in fact the not found node, and isn't messed up at all; it's supposed to be like that.

1 is the nodetype nodetype. That is, the type of a node is also a node, and 1 is the type that the types of nodes are. I hope that was as clear as mud; I want to maintain an air of mystery, because it's more fun that way.

...and along that lines, I'm not going to tell you what the rest are. Insert maniacal laughter here.

[choroba]: Why don't they use tire chains?
[perldigious]: First snow, probably not prepared right away choroba.
[stevieb]: it's Quebec... they do weird stuff there :) In the mountains, it is *mandatory* for trucks to use tire chains. Many passenger vehicles do as well (but it's not mandatory for them)
[perldigious]: That stuff can hit fast... like what we just got where I'm at. Saw a few people who had slid OUT of the roundabout I have to drive through to get to work, not used to the ice yet, take awhile to get the hang of it again and make vehicle adjustments.
[stevieb]: man, when the roads are glare ice, I don't even bother going to work or out... unless I absolutely have to, or was already out in the first place
[choroba]: Tire chains are mandatory here in mountains, and the only unprepared each year are gritters
[stevieb]: I have a 3 day winter survival kit in my vehicle in the event I get snowed in in the mountains (which has happened before due to avalanches closing the roads (and once in the summer due to a massive forest fire that trapped us
[perldigious]: a handful of people in my work area did not make it, but I live pretty close and it's flat the whole way, so I didn't have any trouble. The roundabout is the worst thing I have to negotiate.
[thezip]: G'day all!
[perldigious]: Well, that and dodging the people who forget how ice works right away. :-)
