Thanks, guys!
BTW, I'm going to write a DirectX helper library. What kind of conventions would you like it to have?
For instance...
Do_Something() vs. DoSomething()
var_name vs. VarName
Hungarian notation...?

Also, the title of this thread should be "My page HAS been redesigned.".... stupid keyboard can't keep up with my typing

hey thats a really good design! it load fast (the old one had sooooo many screen shots on its main page it was sllooow), and looks sleek..

hmmm naming conventions.....use hungarian notation if u want to use a standard otherwise
var_name and Do_Sumthing ();
(IMO )

btw-make sure you finish kirby!!!

Yeah, that's what I was thinking
I usually use Hungarian notation & mixed caps, but when I wrote these two sets of functions:
  GetJoystickXPosition();GetJoystickYPosition();// and...Get_Joystick_X_Position()Get_Joystick_Y_Position()

It's a lot easier to see the difference.
Plus, I've spent more time worrying about which prefix to add to my variables than I have actually seen them do any good.

Also, it seems that a lot of people have read TOTWGPG as their major source, so it would be a good idea to match its naming style (same as above.)

I''ve always did it this way:

void MyClass::doSomething() { }

where the first letter of every class (unless you''re doing a data structure library like the STL ) is capitalized, and the first letter of a method is lowercase (of course there are exceptions like you''re method starts with an acronym or something like that).

I have this feeling that someone''s going to pop up from out of the blue and state that all programmers stopped doing that in the mid 80''s. Oh well, guess I''m stuck in the 80''s.

My way of doing things is just the first style I learned and it is rather aesthetic IMCHO.

Java-Script has a standard coding convention?!!

I prefer:

int doSomething;
int DoSomething();

But some people just think I''m goofy.

Much nicer page, Scott! A few minor things I thought of since I''ve seen both versions:
-If their are any screenshots and logos, make thumbnails of them to put under the Project Name heading. Just leave the others as text, except for the SigTool. Do it up as a nice rainbow

If that''s too much to ask, I''d be happy to do the work! I''m in a web-page mood right now

Hmm, I can''t seem to dowload the Bubbles screensaver. I keep getting a 403 - Forbidden Access error. I wonder if anyone else is having this error, or if it''s my connection. {It''s saddening to know that not everyone can access the full internet.}

Version numbers are a good idea Same for the logos/icons. In fact, I need to add the file''s sizes too...

I accidentally forgot to change Bubbles.zip to lowercase I fixed it. I hope that was the problem. If you still can''t get it, I can email it to you.

I just noticed that you''re using curly braces for parentheses... is that a Pascal commenting habit or just coincidence?

Changing Bubbles to lowercase didn''t work . As for my use of curly brackets, I started using them because parantheses became confusing around smilecons. {And, no, I''ve never really touched pascal that much }

D''oh!
The new link does work. I accidently told go!zilla to make the new file a mirror instead of a seperate file, thus the same error was occuring. BTW, SHilb, please ask me first next time you decide to send a file my way I wasn''t that desperate for the file, just trying to be helpful.
