I got a friend to download code::blocks and Boost for me. I need to learn what's different in cb than in Dev-C++. The good news is I should have broadband within a month, as we're moving inside of the city. I despise Thomaston, but at least I can connect faster than 26.4kbps in it.
The demo, delayed far more than I would like, will most likely be ready by Valentine's Day. Oh, how I despise that day.
