  1. FTP connection using sockets

    socket communication is simple on windows platform. i say that simplicity holds true in linux/unix as well. the api is the same. you need to design the i/o in an object-oriented style. Kuphryn
  2. as you look at low-level development tools, you see there are more options. c is even more flexible than c++, but you would have to design your own parser and compiler. same with assembly. c++ has its limitations. and any future revisions of c++ will have limitations. thats what makes software development exciting. Kuphryn
  3. Winsock2 tutorials

    i highly recommend Network Programming for Microsoft Windows Second Edition by Anthony Jones and Jim Ohlund. Kuphryn
  4. issue is inconsistency in class inheritance. you should do class templates. Kuphryn
  5. Visual Studio 2005 versus 2003.NET

    vc++ v8 2005 is the best c++ ide from microsoft at present time. impressive c++ parser, compiler, and the main ui is great. it is the most c++ compliant. Kuphryn
  6. simple approach is to add files as resources. Extract the files and spawn setup file FindResource() LoadResource() Kuphryn
  7. Classes and Such (C++)

    one improvement via containers check out stl Kuphryn
  8. Critical Error

    possible problems include invalid pointers and handles initialize all member variables Kuphryn
  9. system specs (with cpu fan and power supply): Intel Core 2 Duo Conroe E6600 (2.4ghz) CPU ASUS P5W DH Deluxe Intel 975X Chipset THERMALTAKE CL-P0114 BIG TYPHOON (impressively quiet) OCZ 2GB (1GB x 2) PC2-7200 900MHZ Western Digital 74GB SATA150 10,000RPM 16MB eVGA GEFORCE 7600GT KO 256MB DDR3 ANTEC SP500 SMART POWER 2.0 ATX 12V v2.0 500W (well-equipped set of accessories) WinXP SP2 Kuphryn
  10. Intel Core 2 Duo Conroe E6600 (2.4ghz) CPU is fast New system compiles multiple software projects while processing media (DVD, divx, and audio, etc.) at the speed of light. (500% improvement) Multiple cores CPU significantly improves performance of multithreaded software architectures. Kuphryn
  11. no right or wrong both are good approaches Kuphryn
  12. Greetings, Finally the last piece of a high-performance workstation (Intel Core 2 Duo Conroe). Essential questions about Internal Peripherals * Power Supply Preferred power supply (500W or more) for high-performance CPU? Many brands and products (450W -> 1000W). Which ones are accurate and reliable? * CPU Fan Thermaltake Zalman * New motherboards include on-board sound card, network card, etc. Music and network connection are extremely important. What is the performance difference between on-board (internal) and stand-alone (independent) peripherals? Better to select stand-on sound card and network card to improve motherboard efficiency? Are on-board peripherals reliable? Kuphryn
  13. Greetings, Planning for a high-performance workstation (Intel Core 2 Duo Conroe). Next, I would like to talk about graphics card (PCI Express). As mentioned in the post about CPU, I spend much time on developing software, including compiling multiple applications, and watching DVD. Sometimes I play PC games especially RPG and simulation. Great if the graphics card could provide exceptional visual effects when playing games (RPG) and watching DVD. What are some quality graphics cards that would match well with the new high-performance workstation? ATI or Nvidia? What quality is the driver software especially on windows platforms (xp and vista)? Which graphics card? Kuphryn
