    Arrow post counts...

    ok... so i'm bored, and I just randomly looked up the top posters on this bored... and I realize I just barely made the top 30... now my question is this:

    Is it a good or a bad thing that this is true... cuz either A) I have a life and am hardly on here, or B) I don't ask many questions... meaning that I don't program in C much or I just don't need answers.. or C) I'm not helping many people... so what good am I doing?

    Or the almighty answer... D) No one really cares and I should just shutup and get to work..

    E) You bide your time searching for meaningful questions to respond to where your expertice can be best applied while everyone else above you in the postings are pouncing on every scrap thrown into the water like sharks in a feeding frenzy in a horrible attempt to artificially boost their numbers.

    Maybe its OK not to be #1 in the postings!

    Well - you still have 350+, so the life answer's out of the question (you don't have one - people like me just have less of... um... no life)
    B) Most of the top posters don't ask a ton of questions..
    C)Can't really answer that...
    D)Yeah, probably... same here

    Well thats a good question.

    You actually being here rules out a.
    Posting that in a question form rules out b.
    And the irrevalncy of this thread rules out c.

    Really i think you have answered your own question.

    try this one:

    int main() {
    int t;
    t=(rand()%4)+'A';
    cout << "The answer is "/*" << (char)t << "*/ << (char)69
    << "\n";
    return 0;
    }

    ok, maybe it's not so subtle...

    well technically...

    actually ygf, that would produce the same result since you hadn't reseeded the RNG... so, reseed it with a value with a fine granularity, and then we'd be set...
