In Topic: std::sort corrupts my memory

20 April 2016 - 11:43 AM

What compiler are you using? I can’t remember the last time anybody’s needed to add whitespace between right angle brackets in a template typename...

I know for myself adding the space just became a habit.


In Topic: And the Best President for America is…

As an impartial Canadian by-stander...  Trump is hilarious.  Really though, he's not racist or prejudice (not trying to defend him).  The reality is he's nothing but a salesman.  He'll say ANYTHING he thinks will 'sell' his message, irregardless of pretty much any other factor.  He's a liar through and through, and nothing more.  And its so funny watching people both praise and get angry at what he says.  Its like watching a 2-year old play hind-and-go-seek, they think they're so clever hiding behind a curtain where you can clearly see them.  That's Trump.  Granted, I might not have such a whimsical viewpoint if he could potentially be my Prime Minister, but as an outsider, its comedy gold.

 

Not that it really matters who gets elected over there (nothing ever really changes), but I'd go with Sanders myself.  At least he's got good intentions and ideas.  Even if none of his ideas make it through, the US will still be in a far better place than if anyone else gets in.  'Nothing will happen' is often much better than the alternative, sadly.


In Topic: Should getters and setters be avoided?

As usual, you should not take everything too seriously.

 

There is a common behavioural pattern of someone doing something, then someone else noticing that it's actually a clever idea and calling it "best practice". Then someone calls it a "pattern", and soon a witch hunt starts against anyone not applying the pattern. A year later, someone says "considered evil" and the word "antipattern" comes up, and the same witch hunt starts in the opposite direction. And then, another year later, someone says "no longer considered evil".

I can't upvote this enough ; )


In Topic: In terms of engine technology, what ground is left to break?

The biggest advances will not be in visual rendering (IM very HO) but rather in physics and gameplay/simulation.  Simulating battles with millions of entities, realistic fluid interaction, building destruction, etc...


In Topic: Could Trump make Video-Games 'Great Again' if elected?
