In Topic: Going multi-threaded | Batches and Jobs

To my knowledge, C/C++ by itself has no notion of multi-threading.


As of C++11, C++ does have native thread support.

In Topic: Can anyone recommend cheap games for a classroom?

A place I learned about several new board games was on Geek & Sundry's YouTube channel.  Wil Weaton does a show called TableTop .  They show off playing table top games and you can obverse how they play before actually purchasing them.  I've ended up buying several of the games they have played (and enjoyed playing them with friends and family).


I've really enjoyed several cooperative games (Pandemic, Forbidden Island, etc).  Games where either everyone works together and wins or everyone looses.


Ticket to Ride is another fun one.  Relatively simple game play, but requires a lot of strategy (and luck).

In the Project Property Pages -> C/C++ -> Output Files

Object File Name = $(IntDir)%(RelativeDir)\

Suppose i get to register it somehow - will it keep working without internet explorer?


It does require an occasional re-checkin, so you might have issues.

In my experience, Acer does tend to be a little on the cheaply built side.
