The RETURN OF THE STANG!
=============================================================================================================
Well, nearly 4 months ago I did something pretty nasty to my car. I backed up into a small pole in the parking lot near campus.

Well, about 3 weeks ago, I put the car in the shop for a make-over.

Today! The beast has returned! FINALLY!

Before:


After:




I tell you what. Not having a car, totally sucks. On top of that, fiberglass sucks even worse, so I put it in the shop even longer to replace the entire kit. I would have got the same kit in Poly Urethane if the company I bought it from had not gone out of business! ;|

So. I went with the Saleen kit. HEAVY duty poly urethane! Something in me hates the fact that I am imitating a Saleen Mustang, because in fact I am driving a v6 coupe, however, I have got to say, it looks great.

You are probably going, "WTF! Why the hell did this man buy a v6 MUSTANG!!!". Well. I've been saying from day one that I am a hard, dedicated and spirited worker... I bought this car 6 years ago (July 1999) off of my fast food paycheck(1 1/2 years) and paid it off in the Marines. Crazy, time flys....

Pointers, Pointers, Pointers!

I read up on pointers, and I'll be re-reading it tomorrow too. I dont know what it is with these things, but I am still waiting for the 'click' to happen (fully understanding it to the point where I can code w/o looking back into the books).

Oh, and it does not help (for the motivation factor) that every book that I read it says, "For newcomers, pointers are often hard to understand. Debugging problems due to pointer errors bedevil even experienced programmers."! ;)

@balaam & TraderJack
Thank you both -VERY MUCH- for your feedback on yesterday's 'Code, Code, Code".

Well, I am off for the night to prepare for tomorrows finals! Thank GOD these classes are nearly OVER! I am about ready to kick -start next semester so I can learn something else.

Take care all. Stay motivated & until next time!

That's actually a pretty good summary of pointers and dynamic memory. Have you gotten to the section in the book about the new and delete operators? That's one of the more useful places you use pointers (it's also often the source of hard to find bugs). Pointers are also needed when you get into inheritance with polymorphism.

Keep plugging away at them, and they will eventually make more sense.

Hey I *just* clicked with pointers the other day! FINALLY!

I'm pretty sure it was this book (just start reading it :P)
that did it for me...
