In Topic: why C++?

19 January 2015 - 07:22 AM

what is C++ i see it on many places but nower to be found what it is.

 

I hope this doesn't come across too harsh, but if you want to be a programmer, then you need to get a LOT better at researching information.  It's an extremely important skill for a programmer, and most of the information you will need to find on an everyday basis will be more difficult to locate than the answer to your question here.


In Topic: Ever completely lost a game and its source code?

I lost 10-15 years worth of projects due to both my main and backup HDs failing simultaneously.  I store a copy of everything online now.

Holy fucking shit, how do you mentally recover from that?

 

 

In my case, it probably helps that I have extremely bad long term memory retention, so there's not much difference to me between something that happened 20 years ago and something that happened 6 months ago.  I can remember that I did something a long time ago, but it feels like it was something that someone else did, and not me. So while I still regret the loss of the codebase, it doens't feel like I lost my life's work, as it was sort of someone else's life.

During that week, my dev computer's two HDD fried, along with my video card (and after spending 2 weeks at my local repairman, the cause of the problem was never properly identified, but loosely tied to an electric surge despite my high-tech powerbar...)
I've lost all of my personal music files (a collection ripped from CDs I own (for the most part at least) that's been accumulated over the last 20 years (we're talking roughly 40GB here) but most importantly, several WIP projects that I had shelved for future reference (at least 3 of which I intended on revisiting in the coming year).

 

That sounds pretty much exactly what happened to me, so I feel your pain.  I did have my music backed up to Google Music though, so I didn't lose that.  I should have known better the last time it happened to me as I did also lose a C++/assembly DOS GUI project I'd been working on for years to a HDD failure as well (though that was before online backups were a thing, and I didn't even have an internet connection).
