    Farewell My Love

    Quote:Original post by Character73 Quote:Original post by lethalhamster I think Windows is one of the only softwares that I have had very few bugs/issues/troubles with. I don't get why people hate it so much, and to be honest, I have never had a good reason to believe someone that says it's buggy and sucks. If you know what your doing (ie: no illegal software or free icons downloaded form the internet) You shold never get spyware. I don't. Can anyone give me a good reason not to like Windows? Yes Because It's just cooler to hate Microsoft. Most computer folks fall into the following stereotype.... 1-MTV. 2-Alternative underground music. 3-Dropped Raver Pants. Hence, people that are trying to be trend setters. It's a pshycological thing. Therefore, since Microsoft is the norm, they cannot deal with that. They need to be different, and that is where Mickey Mouse Linux comes in :) <sarcasm>Bro, then rate me up. b/c I lost about 75 points after this post. All these M$ lovers rate me down, you M$ haters don't rate me up.</sarcasm> [lol]

    I love MS too and the Road Ahead was an excellent read.

    Conversations with an internet scammer! Funny reading...

    This was definately entertaining [lol][lol] But here's what I think: On the other side of Jacob C. Alabaster's optic fibers is another person like you, on another site like gamedev, posting a similar post like this this one.
  4. Yep, my assumptions were right on. Thanks mumpo. Ratings ++

    School stupidness....

    the dumbest things schools do is NOT PREDISPOSE TO THEFT. Seriously, I can steal so many computers. My old school even left laptops in the open for ppl to steal.
  7. I was getting more compile errors. The below source code is what is supposed to be inside //do things to prev_dataMap and next_dataMap. for( pDataMap::iterator i=DirectoryInformation_dataMap.begin(); i != DirectoryInformation_dataMap.end(); ++i ){ if( (*(i->second))["dbf"] == controlParameter->Get("dbf") ){ if( i != --DirectoryInformation_dataMap.end() ){ ++i; next_dataMap=new Data;; next_dataMap->Set( "./system/db/" + controlParameter->Get("db") + "/data/" + (*(i->second))["dbf"] + ".cgi" ); } break; } if( prev_dataMap != NULL ){ delete prev_dataMap; prev_dataMap=NULL; } prev_dataMap=new Data; prev_dataMap->Set( "./system/db/" + controlParameter->Get("db") + "/data/" + (*(i->second))["dbf"] + ".cgi" ); } I am slightly confused as to what I should do to "delete prev_dataMap;" "prev_dataMap=new Data;" "prev_dataMap->Set( "./system/db/" + controlParameter->Get("db") + "/data/" + (*(i->second))["dbf"] + ".cgi" )" I assume something like this happens though. "delete *prev_dataMap;" "*prev_dataMap=new Data;" "(*prev_dataMap)->Set( "./system/db/" + controlParameter->Get("db") + "/data/" + (*(i->second))["dbf"] + ".cgi" )"
  8. Basically, void Control::DisplayContEvaluate(std::string type, Config nextDbf, Data **para_prev_dataMap, Data **para_next_dataMap ){ Data *prev_dataMap=*para_prev_dataMap; Data *next_dataMap=*para_next_dataMap; if( type == "first"){ prev_dataMap=*para_next_dataMap; next_dataMap=*para_prev_dataMap; } //do things to prev_dataMap and next_dataMap. } main(){ Data* prev_dataMap=NULL; Data* next_dataMap=NULL; DisplayContEvaluate( controlConfig->Get("SnListingOrder"), nextDbf, &prev_dataMap, &next_dataMap ); //next_dataMap is still NULL when it comes out. } I think that I am not passing those pointers correctly. But to my logic, I think I am doing things correctly, otherwise I'm not understanding something correctly.

    c++ at University

    In my school, it's all Java for the purposes of teaching OOP and designing. You can choose to learn C++ in non-mandatory course though.

    What gives us the right to eat other creatures?

    I belive in aliens for almost the same reasons as Oberon_Command. No. I can't prove it. No. I'm not into philosophical logic. Yes. I took a logic class in college. Yes. I believe aliens will be proven someday. Not through textual logic but by perceiving it's presence. No. I don't know when this will happen. No. You can't disprove aliens either because you can't go and search every single star. Yes. You can possibly disprove aliens if you base the presense of aliens on the fact by only what you can see is real. However what we can see is limited because we are not omnipresent. etc etc we can go on with these kind of lists but I don't like philosophical logic.

    Farewell My Love

    Dear Microsoft Windows, In retrospect, this letter should be of no surprise to you. For years now I have stood by you despite the terrible things people have said. We have always managed to work through our serious problems but too many things have been swept under the table. I do not think I can stand (idly) by you any longer. What's that? No, another service pack will not help, not this time. I remember when we met, a warm April day, in 1992. For years I had been hearing about you, about your graphical user interface, innovations, and problems in the courtroom... I had seen you here and there, but it was not until that fateful day, April 6, that our relationship became serious. Though you had changed with the times, never like this. I was almost knocked off my feet when I first saw you. Right then I knew it, you had to be mine. Who else could offer me what you could? I wanted, no, I needed, your TrueType font support, your video playback capability, your color screen savers... As time progressed so did my needs. Our affair took its next serious step on August 24, 1995. At the time I thought our happiness would never end. You brought me places I never thought possible. How could I refuse your Plug-and-Play cabability or your TCP/IP stack? I mean, you gave up your best friend, DOS, so our relationship could progress unhindered. It hurts me to look back at us, two starry-eyed lovers wanting nothing more than each other's company. Then it almost all came tumbling down. June 25, 1998. What were you thinking? Were you thinking at all? You changed, like in 1995, but not like I thought you would. Still clinging to your DOS kernel, like a small, lost child clutching its teddy bear. Where was the OS I had learned to love? You feebly proffered USB support, DVD playback, and a Quick Launch toolbar, but you were beginning to mix with a bad crowd. With that invasive Internet Explorer. I knew about what happened... You let him access your Explorer. I thought that was something special between us. Though we had a bit of a falling out afterwards, my love was rekindled after February 17th, 2000. You were once again new- Professional- just like I thought you could one day be. I knew you were once again stable, not like back in 1998, and that you were the only OS for me. I remembered what had drawn me you you in the first place- ease of use, speed, your stunning looks, your compatibility. I remember saying, "I hope things never change because I love you the way you are." I thought that what we had meant something- your transformation in 2000 seemed to cement that. I know now that I was wrong. By Sept 17 you tried to change for the Millennium. I saw right through you- trying to settle down and fit in better with the 'home-user'. Did you think I would love you more because of a few cosmetic changes? I was not impressed with the full-color icons, fancy skins, or your new media player. I thought what we had was deeper than that. Luckily you gave me a choicer, I did not have to choose the new you, the old version would be fine. I know you meant well but you just shouldn't have done that, especially with the '1998' episode so fresh in my mind. By October 25, 2001 more changes had come. Everyone told be how great the new you would be. I got so tired of hearing about how up to date, easy to work with, and slick looking you had become. That was all I could take. You changed so much that I didn't even know you any more. I really dug some of your new features but the old you, the you from 2000, could have done all this. So why did you have to change at all? I didn't want to upgrade you or make you into something you were not. Well, like I wrote, I have reached my limit. Its going to take more than an automatic update to fix our relationship. I just don't feel like I know you anymore. For example, do you know what I found on the computer a few days ago? Spyware! I wonder who let that in... Windows, I know you will try to change, but I have been hurt too many times. You should know that I have been seeing someone else for a few months now. She is fun, easy going, and will do something for me that you never even considered, share her source code. I don't know what else to say- we had a good run, but now its over. Pack up your Media Player, your browser, hell, take Minesweeper if you have to. I am sure see each other from time to time but I know one thing, I'll never again have to depend on you. Yours no longer, S C. From: HERE

    Gentleman, behold...

    I had a surgery on mine 1.5 yrs ago. Tips: Urm.... on the spot the wisdom tooth is taken out is a large gaping hole. and would you need to take food particles out that hole after every meal. Plus, note that if you have a gf, you clean out that hole before you meet her. (I wouldn't meet her for a while though even if you clean off ur mouth it still stinks) Because food particles get stuck in that hole, bacteria forms in there, the food starts rotting inside that hole and then ur breathe starts to smell like your foot after not taking your socks or shoes off for 1 month. Experience: My Tooth was strange, so they had to break my tooth to get it removed. During surgery, they gave me sleeping gas. It was so sweet, I couldn't stop laughing. And during surgery the doctors were chatting about food etc, which really got me angry. But my anger calmed down when they hooked me up with some vikes. :) Post Surgery: Sometimes when it rains, I can still feel the pain inside my mouth. But I can sometimes feel the pain in rainy days from my left arm i broke way back in 8th grade. So I guess that's normal for every kind of surgery.

    Oldboy and Asian Films

    Battle Royale was a movie with a crazy idea. IMHO though, It wasn't well made, nor was it even plausible. I didn't know that it had 42 characters and each with a personality. But having 42 characters in a 90minute movie is like saying 42 bars of chocolate full of maggots is economical. I'm currently watching one of japan's most successful anime X. They go through showing the personalities of merely 7 characters ( and they are barely successful ) and that even takes 10 episodes 20minx10 = 200 min. Battle Royale just about failed in portraying anybody's personality in depth. The audeince cannot connect with the characters in the movie. It's just a crazy movie with a crazy idea. Not much meaning, corny romance situation. The movie Battle Royale is based on the story that everybody needs to kill each other. It's about the suspension. Who's going to be the last one standing in the end? No offense to Battle Royale Lovers but it was an overall failure for me. There are much more better movies out there than Battle Royale.
