Dear Fellow CodeGurus,
I wish to announce my latest venture: Sams Teach Yourself C++ In One Hour A Day that has been rewritten ground up to explain the basics of C++ programming, C++11 concepts...

Wow... That's great news (and awesome pics!).
Congratulations Hannes and wish you a blissful and happy marital life!

Yes, there is another way too...
HRESULT CreateCOMObject (Interface ** p)
SmartPointerType <Interface> sp;
HRESULT hr = sp.CreateInstance (...);
if (SUCCEEDED (hr))

You can create a function like:
HRESULT CreateCOMObject (SmartPointerType & sp)
return sp.CreateInstance (...);
void DoSomething ()

No, you dont need to release as the destructor always takes care of it.
(That's why the pointers are called smart -- as they also do the AddRef for you, when you pass them by value and Release...

When using CComPtr or CComQIPtr, one would normally not call Release() at all. That's what smart pointers are for -- they do the reference counting for you. i.e. When the smart pointer object goes...

If my memory serves me right, it seems you're standing in front of the Colloseum in Rome. :)
I guess Brad may be able to help you in recovering your credentials...

Well, the point in my reply too wasn't notepad in itself, so why focus on it. The point as stated clearly was that text-editors (notepad or more sophisticated ones like UltraEdit) that work very...

In general, a programming language like C++ does not have much to do with a GUI technology.
The latter is typically implemented using the former, and hence there are many GUI frameworks to choose...

Well, in that case, switching off lamps for an hour is quite a feeble sacrifice in the name of awareness in creating energy savings. In fact, it is outright misleading given that most devices other...

Ah, I see a problem with that already. ;)
The exercise is quite futile if one focuses on lights alone -- especially if helping the planet is a priority.
Most desktop computers (with their...

Folks, be on the topic, don't get personal and don't get abusive.
Don't react to people who are (just inform the mods, like you also did - thanks).
November 22nd, 2008, 11:10 AM
Ah, good point. :) In that case, reduce F-number (i.e. increase aperture). :D
November 22nd, 2008, 08:24 AM
No, you dont need lighting in this case as you have a tripod.
In fact, that's precisely what tripods are good for - to let you take low ISO photos in existing light situations using long...

That's a nice photo... :)
However ;), as the camera seems to have been placed on a stable surface, you had the option to reduce the ISO Number to say 100 or 80, with a time delay, and that would...

Wow, that's a beautiful place to drive through... And this is the right time of the year!
Dont miss the colors, the food and the traditional folk dances... :)

I like Srilankan Tea and South Indian Filter Coffee... :)
Apart from these two, I also like peppermint tea, and an herb tea by Teekanne. I don't like Green Tea, and I like Indian Black Tea when...

I didn't know that a picture of Saipan without water could exist... :D
So, I thought it was the other place... :D ;)

Woww! Awesome photos, Cherish! :thumb:
You girls (and you in specific too) look so pretty... :) I'm sure some guys in CG will soon jump into their screens and want to land in there asap... ;)

I've been a little slow in replying to this thread due to a hectic work and travel schedule (and now that I've started replying, I seem to not be able to stop :D).
Yeah.. All those...

Thank you very much for your wishes, and also for inspiration on the direction the TYC++ series needed to take!
In addition to introducing the programming syntax, loops, et al to...
