    How to Turn $20 to $40 in 24hrs

    This question has plagued me for sometime, yet it seems simple enough. If you were given $20 right now and told to double it in 24 hours what would you do? Of course, it has to be legal and not "kinda" legal. The best I can think of is buying a case of cola and selling it at a park on a hot day.

    Windows XP Terminal Server

    Does anyone know of a good, free, Telnet/SSH terminal server for windows xp, something that I can basicly access the command line of my box from over the internet.
  5. To compile an array of entries into a single array I am using the following line of code. while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC)) I don't see how it automaticly increments the row i am fetching. what happens if I want to rewind or something? why do i have to do while( $row = ) on the last fetch what is happening? i'm assuming my_sql_fetch_array won't return anything if it doesn't find anything, and it will just fall thru. can someone help explain how this code works?

    Windows XP Terminal Server

    Quote:Original post by Ravuya What about VNC, then? There are some security flaws but I think you can work around them. GUIs are slow, and for all intensive purposes, I really don't need one. Just a nice CLI for email, msn, IRC and code.
  7. does each mysql resource have it's own internal data pointer or is it a globabl one?

    [web] feeding in SQL DML and DDL

    Thank you very much. the mysql command in command line works fine.
  9. i'm just learning SQL. according to this article, i can feed in DML and DDL to SQL and it will return a result. so i can streamline my learning and not get caught up in the nuances of a programing language, is there a application (prefreably command line and both windows and linux compatible.....and free...) that I can use to directly feed in DML and DDL and get the results back?

    Toronto, Ottawa, or Montreal?

    I live in Ajax (part of the GTA) and Toronto is the best place in the world to live if your rich. There is so little availble housing in the Toronto that most of everyone except the super rich have been forced out. you'll probably end up in the inner three (Etobicoke, North York, Scarbourough) if it's just you living alone, otherwise you'll be living in the exburbs.

    PDP-11: what are those switches for

    It's a Computer it does just that, it computes. for the PDP-11 and most microcomputers of the age, you feed instructions in via punch cards, and it will output via whatever method you program for (usually a TTY or something simmilar).

    Sound Input API Needed

    bring up my post
  14. I'm programing a voice trainer, it will take microphone input, analyze the pitch and tell you if you need to go higher or lower or if your on key. I need a sound API that I can get the line in frequency from. can someone recomend a API? Prefably in C#, but C++, VB, or Python are also okay.

I'd love to learn arabic, and i'd love to hear what the quaran has to say, but i have no intention of learning one to learn the other.

    Has It really been 3 years...

    Wow... I started my ventures into game development about 3 years ago today...(started OpenGL in second semeseter of 10th grade.) at anyrate, I did most of my game development in my first year, and haven't coded anything major since. I guess i'm a bit out of the loop. What are the current major APIs in use and game engines that look promising now?

    Quote:Original post by Talroth Unless you have a good reason not to, try stepping into your local police station, (or DMV/whatever) and ask someone what you can legaly use without getting pulled over. Also, how are you planning on doing this? I have acess to a machine shop. Mount like the old bumblebee motors.

    Sentence Interpretation

    i'm reading Issac Asimov's "The Gods Themselves" am I interpreting the sentence "What kind of lunarite will you make if your bring your Earth puritanism here? you know that prudery is only the other side of prurience. the words are even on the same page of the dictionary" Am i correct in thinking this is say that it means. you won't make a good lunarite if you hold on to your strict earth values. being sexually ashamed is a sign there is sexually devient with you. and on that note, how can you be vituperitivly certin?
