C++ has for long been and will continue to be one of my favourites. However, of late, I find myself using JavaScript a lot; it seems to me that you can do just about anything within the browser and you get platform-independence for free too.

Glad you got it working. The Win32 API is purely C, nothing is C++-only. (of course, wrapper libraries like MFC are built using C++, but there's nothing you can't do using just the C API)

Post Posted: December 26th, 2009, 1:02 pm

Combining stdio functions with the Win32 API can be tricky and as in your case, cause problems. Try to eliminate scanf() and instead use the Win32 console functions (GetStdHandle, ReadConsole) to read user input.

Probably not. Most modern browsers cache all objects anyway, but compare the last modified time with the server to make sure cached objects are up to date. In my experience, I really haven't had problems with the browser automatically refreshing dynamic pages.

Post Posted: December 20th, 2009, 8:36 am

I think the browser will anyway cache scripts and images separately. Cache control is determined individually for each file as per the HTTP header. The META tag is just a substitute for the HTTP header for webpages alone.

Totally agree with joe, and this is an important reason why any visual aspect of a webpage should go into CSS and HTML should contain just the page content. This way, search engines always see the page in the same way, and if you want to change the page's looks, all you need to change is the CSS.

You need a server that supports some scripting language - the most common and the one I recommend is PHP.

No. All the original identifiers have been replaced by single letters or other random combinations, so there's no way you can get back the original names.

Well, "compressed" is the wrong term here - it's basically obfuscated, meaning that the code is in front of you, only all the identifiers have weird names, so you can't make out much (if anything) from the code.

Ahh, triggers! I've seen triggers being mentioned in quite a few places... so this is what they're used for. Thanks, joe!

O4 - Global Startup: svchost.exe That looks suspicious, it's probably some malware named svchost.exe - svchost shouldn't be on any startup list, it's automatically started by Windows. I think you should fix this entry. If the virus has been removed, you shouldn't receive this error: "Another p...

Actually, there's a simpler method than using file_get_contents and file_put_contents - you can use the copy() function. Copying a file is as simple as this:
Code: [ Select ]
copy('client', 'client2');

Too bad I wasn't here earlier to see the mirror link. I started my download from about 2 hours ago and it's still on 45%, but I'm letting it continue... I'm not in a hurry, I already tried the beta. And did you guys check out the world record thingy? Sounds cool... 4.5 million downloads ...

Streams great! The page loaded pretty quickly and the buffering too completed in less than half a minute.

I don't know how to do it automatically (if that's what you mean by "when creating the table") but you can periodically run an UPDATE statement to update all entries in the table:
Code: [ Select ]
UPDATE Player_Records SET Total_points = Game1_points + Game2_points + Game3_points

I'll go with joebert.

"If I were a bird..." sounds better too. :)

I don't think I can understand what you're saying. Mind explaining a little? And maybe post some code?

Hashing is a one-way encryption technique, it's meant to store passwords and such. In your case, you need to get back the username, so you'll have to use one of the standard cryptographic algorithms - see the links that spork provided.

1. What operating system do you use?
2. What interface does the HDD use, i.e. IDE, SATA, etc. and are the cables properly connected?

My main assumptions are: My computer is overheating (if so, how can i check if this is happening?) or its something related to my graphics card, as it seems that it only happens when stress is put on the graphics card (in games) (yet i've had the graphics card for about a year now and no problems t...

I don't think Yahoo provides any public ranking such as Google's PageRank.

Get original and quality content for your site.

Content is king. :D

To use META refresh, your index page on should look something like this:
Code: [ Select ]
<html> <head> <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url="> </head> ... </html>
If you use PHP or a similar language...

I am beginning to think regex is not the answer, what I may have to do is read each character and decide if it is commenting or not You're absolutely right on that, Bozebo. Getting a regex for this problem would not only be difficult, it might actually be pretty slow. It's much simpler to write a s...

If you're using NTFS, Disk Management has an option to mount a partition as a folder under an existing drive letter. So you could probably give the first drive a letter, then mount the remaining ones under that.

so I would create 3 cookies 1 holding the IP, the other holding the username and the other holding the password All you need is one cookie holding the username, preferably in an encrypted form, so that people aren't able to tamper cookies and put in any username. Storing the password in a cookie is...

I don't think it's a surprise that mail clients won't accept long URLs... and thousands of characters is huge in terms of URLs. Specifying the message body in the link isn't a very good idea - you should find some other way of doing this.

Is that a general question or do you have a specific problem? Hardware is a very broad topic, so you should post more details on what exactly you want...

You already seem to have the code for sending an email. What is your question then?

Post Posted: June 6th, 2008, 4:15 am

It's very much possible but you'll need to do some extra work, and I don't really see the benefit of hiding the image path. One way of going about this is to have a mapping from a number to the image path, for eg.: [code]$map = array( 1 => 'abc1/def2.gif', 2 => 'something/xyz.jpg' 3 => 'ano...

Download this utility, it should restore Task Manager and Registry Editor. After that, you can use the other tools - probably Hijack or the registry fix.

It's fine to connect both of them on the same slot. IDE is designed to support two devices per interface.

The formatting time isn't because of the connection. It's normal for the formatting process to take some time, and the time increases with the size of the partition you are formatting.

Hmmm Now that's odd. The favicon shows in my Favorites list in IE7 but not in the address bar or the tab

IE6 treats a favicon just as the name suggests - it displays them only in the favorites list. It wasn't designed to display them on the address bar. Not too sure about IE7.

Do you use a common include file on all your pages? If so, can you post its contents here? I feel there may be something funny in that.

And I noticed one more thing: (you probably already know this) whenever you remove an item from your cart, all items having the same product ID are removed.

Post Posted: June 4th, 2008, 11:48 pm

That's one of the reasons I don't use ASP too - you're stuck to IIS.

I'm sure you're feeling great, SpooF. :D And I just saw your blog too... congrats on your admission to WSU.

what is visual basic for anyway I thought you had a specific need in mind when you asked your first question. Otherwise, I wouldn't suggest learning Visual Basic at all - as spork put it, VB is for doing things really quick, but then it's nowhere as powerful as many other languages out there. Learn...
