    Decryption Puzzle (Not computer related)

    Any chance we could get a few more samples, would make it easier to determine what the pattern is. Looking at the sample you gave us, it seems as if the letters just get shuffled around a bit. I made up a quick and dirty test, so you can run a few more through to see if the letters are always shuffled the same way. #include <iostream> int main (int argc, char * const argv[]) { char *in= "NOPMABCDEFGHIKJL"; char out[16] = ""; //Part1 HGFE out[0] = in[11]; out[1] = in[10]; out[2] = in[9]; out[3] = in[8]; //Part2 NOPM out[4] = in[0]; out[5] = in[1]; out[6] = in[2]; out[7] = in[3]; //Part3 IJKL out[8] = in[12]; out[9] = in[14]; out[10] = in[13]; out[11] = in[15]; //Part4 BCDA out[12] = in[5]; out[13] = in[6]; out[14] = in[7]; out[15] = in[4]; std::cout << out << std::endl; return 0; }

    Online, offline, hybrid? What game type do you prefer?

    I'm not a big online game player, and for the most part I avoid multiplayer also. The only game I ever really played a lot of multiplayer was Halo, not really sure why, just found the multiplayer enjoyable. I guess my vote would go to Hybrid games :)

    Dual Booting

    I'm lazy, so I'll quote myself from the free stuff thread: Quote: Altiris SVS URL: http://www.svsdownloads.com/ Description: Altiris SVS is a free tool for software virtualization. You "capture" application installs into a layer, then you can use the SVS Admin to deactivate, reactivate, reset, or delete the layer. If you deactivate the layer, all traces of it are removed from your system. It's a very nice piece of software, especially for free! The Goods: Free software virtualization, excellent for keeping your machine clean and uncluttered. The Catch: None that I'm aware of. Anyways, you should be able to install the school software in a layer, then activate that layer only when you need to. When a layer is deactivated all the stuff put in place by the installer and all files/registry changes made by the application disappear, and won't come back until you activate the application. I use SVS everyday, and it works very well, hopefully it will help you out.

    Nice to meet you.
  7. You could try putting a breakpoint in the button click event handler to see if the code in the handler is even being run. If the code is not being run that would explain why you can click the button, see the click animation, yet have the button do absoulutly nothing.
  8. I have an OwnerDrawn ComboBox that uses an System::Windows::Forms::ImageList to display images in the comboBox. The AutoCompleteMode is set to Suggest. Everything works fine, except that the images are not in the Suggest box that drops down when you start typing. I need to know how to control what is drawn in the Suggest box. Anybody have any ideas?

    Free partitioning software?

    Use the BootIt NG Trial. There's no Limitations that I know of. I've used it to create and resize partitions many times. Get it here.

    wtf animated .jpg?

    Quote:Original post by Ravuya Windows is now much brighter than to judge files it finds on the Internet by their file extension; back in the days of Win95 and the very first releases of IE you could trick it into loading various kinds of files by others using weird filename extensions. I seem to remember there was a buffer overflow exploit related to it. I don't know if I'd called Windows much brighter for that. IIRC the JPEG of Death was a bit of a problem in this respect because people figured that if it didn't have a .JPG extension on it that it was safe, but the exploit still worked since Windows still treated it as a .JPG even though somebody may have changed the extension to .GIF.

    Partitioning software

    You could use BootIt NG. You can get the trial version, which has the ability to resize a drive and create partitions. I've used it many times, and have never had a problem with it.

    Getting Bored With XP Themes

    You could download the UXTheme patcher and get normal windows themes. You don't need to have any other software after you run the patcher. Patcher Some Themes
