  1. Slower than 2008, but not as slow as 2010 - the new user interface takes a bit of getting used to, but other than those little niggles, it's nod bad.
  2. The GDNet Birthday thread

    [quote name='Gaiiden' timestamp='1308148635' post='4823609'] Leave us a message below and let us know how GDNet has helped/influenced you these past 12 years [/quote] Ahhh, all the traumatized n00bs, brings back memories.....
  3. useless rant about rudeness inside

    Quote:Original post by Oluseyi Quote:Original post by Nurgle I've been away far too long... Welcome back, by the way. (Also, you're the one who recommended me as a moderator (we met on the Indrema forums), to succeed you in Everything Unix. So you foisted this evil on the world! [smile]) Yes. I recommended you so you could continue by unending torment of clueless n00bs while I worked on other diabolical and unmentionable schemes. And what have you achieved? "Blunt" and "Direct" and sometimes "Abrasive". Pathetic. If I had known you would have ended up another castrated newb-helping do-gooder, I would never have recommended you for the position. I mean, this posted opened with you being compared to Gordon Ramsey. If you did your job properly, the culinary master your visage would invoke should be more along the lines of Jeffrey Dahmer, not bloody Gordan Ramsey. Sheesh.
  4. useless rant about rudeness inside

    Quote:Original post by Oluseyi No, what I said is that I have no compunctions about responding in kind. (I largely still don't.) When I first joined GDNet, I was much more confrontational, but it's been eight years. Give a dude a break. *sigh* I've been away far too long...
  5. Dynamic linking can be useful if you need to target different architectures (such as Intel/AMD specific instruction sets), or plan on using some method of run-time patching, but doing it properly involves a bit of extra work. If you not planning to do anything that requires the use of DLL, they stick with static.
  6. useless rant about rudeness inside

    Quote:Original post by jbadams ...snip... I could ramble about how text doesn't convey tone very well and a large amount of normal human communication is usually non-verbal, or about how a comment percieved as a direct insult may just be a general remark, or about emphasis being mistaken for anger, but those things have all been covered by previous responses to the thread. ...snip... You're right about that, otherwise you would have noticed the obvious sarcasm in my previous post. I guess hanging around in the help wanted forum has blunted your wits....
  7. useless rant about rudeness inside

    Quote:Original post by Oluseyi You guys still think I'm rude? *cries* You are without a doubt the most offensive person ever to be given a position of authority at GDNet. I seem to remember you once bragging about how you were always the first to flame people?
  8. How does microsoft do it?

    I think people should lay off the MS developer support. The products I expect most people here are using are aimed at home users, not professionals or developers (raise your hand if you're using XP Professional! (I'm not)). If you're a serious developer, you'll have at least an MSDN Professional Subscription, which includes oodle of tools, including checked builds of the operating systems (with more [0] debugging info), the latest compilers and service packs, SDKs and regular updates to the library. The OEM stuff you get with your home PC isn't for power-users, just every day people who consider computers a tool and not a way of life. They don't need or want the features that developers and profesionals require. P.S. Who here has the Visual Studio 2k5 Team System Beta 2 pack? It kicks ass, completely unrestricted (once you sign the go-live license), and it's FREE! [0] And when I say more, I'm mean almost every if, almost every for, almost every initialazation has a configurable message, every validation causes a break on fail. Hell, you can even put start-up on step-by-step mode.
  9. News catches on to ten year old trends in U.S.

    Quote:Original post by Sneftel Anime worth watching: Noir, Nadesico, Naruto (probably), many others. About time someone mentioned Nadesico. Baka. Here's a tip when it comes to finding good anime... if the name begins with N, then it's probably good.
  10. Quote:Original post by Salsa I have yet to hear a legitimate complaint about Titanic. I really would like to hear two sound reasons of why the movie "sucks". Legitimate complaints: 1) Too damned long. 2) Near-zero suspension of disbelief (mainly due to historical inaccuracies in characters behaviours).

  13. Solution to global pollution? Hide it!?

    Quote:Original post by frostburn is problem will diminish, if the deforestation doesn't makes it impossible to convert it back to oxygen. Just a quick FYI... You can cut down every tree on the planet and it wouldn't change the rate of CO2 being converted into oxygen, as most of the work (I heard 90%) is performed by green sea algae, and not trees.
