I was showing my little brother around my system, the various compilers and stuff, because he has been interested in programming. My family is visiting, and I hoped he'd have some fun. But I showed...

I have a moral for today:
never show your little brother how to log on to sites with your user name...

Ahh... after a good nights sleep, all is good with the world.
:) :) :) :) :)
I agree with the labeling problems, too. The reason I stopped being a libertarian was because it is a party full...

I just wanted to say, now that I'm all "likered' up" with sangria and just spent some time writing a long (LONG) letter to my employer about all sorts of BS, so I'm in a fightin' mood. Except...

Its rare for Robert Heinlein to be called a communist these days. As an ex-military man (semi-real service here -- navy, battleship service and all that), who at times made suggestions like a person...

You guys can fix up your manes anyway you like. I'm waiting for the wings they promised me.

Mick, I wish I could be corrected like that more often. When I saw your quote, I had to go out and find more. I discovered that I had a much deeper misunderstanding, here. Some where along the...

I want to explain my position some.
Really, I don't think there is a requirement to use either packet size in a header or a delimiter. Even when you have multiple sizes in your packets, all you...

I see no reason to ever use delimiters. That would just limit the character set you could use for the rest of the packet string. I've only ever prepended the size.

I wouldn't exactly call it a no-brainer, but it is certainly useful. As are other options like wxWindows, which has the advantage of being LGPL'd open source. And there are other solutions for...

As well, anonymous instances will only lookup match with the latter (const) reference.

I specifically mentioned that species and entire ecosystems have been destroyed, and cautioned that it is a phenomena that should be given more attention (as opposed to ignoring). The tale was only...

More than 3.5 billion years ago, a species of bacteria created a dye that could transmit the energy of the sun to fuel its growth. These were the cyanobacters, that soon formed large mats of...

not all solutions best represent the problem domain; eg. you could do this with API interception
it is often useful in documenting intent when working with others to do pre- and post-condition /...

I too would describe it like Deniz. Basically, windows 3.x and earlier were DOS extensions for the most part. No preemptive multitasking, 16 bit, etc. Windows 95 added preemptive multitasking...

Is this something you need to code or just want to use. Many libraries out there have fixed-point classes for use (the gnu FixN classes, for example, are free in libg++) and you could search around...

Probably the fastest way is to make yourself a bitmap with an alpha channel and AlphaBlend (GDI msimg) it onto your scene. This code demonstrates. You could make the circle in a simple paint...

There are a few mathematical theorems which show you can make a program O(f(n)) complex to crack for various functions f and code sizes n, usually using complex nested encryptions keyed to a series...

Of course its not your PC!! Everyone already knows the laptop story, and besides, that is obviously XP not 2000. You think no one pays attention around here???
Although you might pretend you are...
