  1. Maybe I should write something on it once in a while. Really, a 5 year gap between posts is pretty sad.
  2. Do MP3s degrade over time?

    You wouldn't have this problem if you had used MP3-beating compression...
  3. Sounds like you are looking for the SW_SHOWNOACTIVATE flag in your call to ShowWindow().
  4. New Keyboard Suggestions

    I'd just like to chime in and agree that the Natural 4000 is unmatched in its awesomeness.
  5. First Flash Game: TankRush

    Good job! I noticed one little bug though. You can't start moving until after you have fired at least once. That caused a rather quick death in my first game [smile]
  6. LHC to end the world!

    Fortunately, there's a handy website which tells us in real-time whether or not the world has ended: http://www.hasthelhcdestroyedtheearth.com/.
  7. Software that annoys the hell out of you

    Quote:Original post by Scint I detest Lotus Notes. It's what my company uses for e-mail and databases. If you don't happen to know exactly where something is, you better hope someone posted a link in an e-mail or you'll never find it. At one time, my software group started using a wiki hosted from one of our extra computers. It was so easy to find and update information, but eventually IT put down our rogue operation and forced us to use Notes. Also, F5 in Lotus Notes does not refresh your e-mail. No, it actually locks the window and you have to enter your password again. Heh. If you thought using Notes was bad, try developing for it [sick].
  8. So who understands that GPL/LGPL thing?

    Quote: The Readline library implements input editing and history for interactive programs, and that's a facility not generally available elsewhere. Releasing it under the GPL and limiting its use to free programs gives our community a real boost. This is my biggest gripe with the GPL. GPL supporters are only interested in helping to make GPL'd software better. I would rather release under a BSD-type license and help to make all software better.
  9. If the web browser is IE, you should be able to do this pretty easily. If you have a handle to the window, you can get a pointer to an IHTMLDocument2 object from it. You then have full DOM access to the webpage and can do whatever you want with it. We do something very similar in one of our apps, except that instead of targeting IE itself, we target the instances of IE that Outlook uses to display its email messages. Have a look at this KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q249232/.
  10. Attributes. Why?

    I wrote about an example of attribute usage a long time ago in my journal.
  11. I find that properties can make code much more readable. For example, consider the following SWT code: int blah = foo.getSize().x - bar.getBounds().x;The C#/WinForms version is much friendlier, and it's easier to immediately see exactly what is happening:int blah = foo.Width - bar.Left;
  12. Quote:Original post by bigjoe11a Your ever going to get any thing right unless your willing to listen. Oh, the irony. The problem is not differences between VC# 2008 and VC# 2005, or that we aren't willing to listen. The problem is that YOU refuse to listen. YOU refuse to post your error messages. YOU refuse to take any initiative to try and solve your own problem. YOU expect us to solve your problem for you - and even when we do, YOU ignore it and complain. YOU insult people who are trying to assist you. If you can't fix a basic compiler error, or don't realize that Console.Write() goes to the console and not a text box, you need to forget about a web server and start from the beginning.
  13. Jogging: How long do you rest?

    Quote:Original post by necromancer_df I've noticed the same thing with muscle aching after exercise. The next day is not too bad, but it really kicks in the day after that. Either it's normal or we're as weird as each other. It's perfectly normal. It's called Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.
