    Good, good. Because if you had wanted changes I probably would have gone about merrily shoving it up your ass

    That sounds uncomfortable. Piece of luck on my part that it was good then i suppose. Perhaps i should check other peoples intentions regarding their submissions and exactly where it is they wish to submit them before i ask for any changes. Maybe a tattoo on by butt... "Exit only"

    My experience is in mathmatics, C, X-Windows, UNIX, inter-process communications. (I work on a simulator for the military that is DIS and HLA compliant) So if you have a need, I will offer my services to write something up on those subject.

    Sounds like you've got the skills but i cant think of anything that urgently needs addressing. The most common stuff has been tackled. Unless someone else has seen something else 1 time too many?

    Thanks for the offer.

    what about this plan

    [sorry if some of this is a little off topic]

    maybe force readers to read the FAQ before they register???
    maybe even a little quiz....

    How about a FAQ on:

    OGL vs. DX
    Win vs. Linux
    2d vs. 3d.
    Microsoft vs. Borland
    C vs. C++
    OO vs. structured/procedural
    What is OO?
    Program Design
    Game Design
    ...the list is endless, I know a good deal about a lot of these things, but my time is sorta limited as of now, I can work on them if people are interested


    I think these are questions which a lot of new people ask w/ no intent of any flame war, maybe if these tutorials were added... If I had some help (i'd want to be fair to both sides) I could write some of them.

    Also I (and/or someone else) could write something like a Which Compiler is right for you where someone could enter their price / experience / needs and we could suggest compilers, I know I could have used it (11 compilers before the one i have now, 5 of those cost money) and we do get a lot of posts on the subject

    Here's another good one. The full screen question.
    Code:
    keybd_event(VK_MENU,0x38,0,0);
    keybd_event(VK_RETURN,0x1c,0,0);
    keybd_event(VK_RETURN,0x1c,KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);
    keybd_event(VK_MENU,0x38,KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);
    Just copy and paste, the code puts the windows in full screen. I've asked a few times but never really gotten a good answer that works on Windows 98 and XP, but I think this one does. It might need windows.h included but I'm not sure.

    EDIT: Yes, it does need windows.h

    And there's the stupid one: "What's better C, C++, or C#?"
    I don't feel like answering that one right now, I bet that's already been said 800 gazillion times.

    And maybe we should have a sample hello world program with documentation so people know what the hell they are doing wrong.

    And maybe an explanation on windows programming and how you just can't start off by doing it.

    Man I'm on a roll here!

    Maybe a compiler section on what compilers do what and what free ones are any good.

    I'll stop procrastinating, I have a Macbeth essay due tomorow.

    Oh yeah, by suggesting these I in no way intend to write these ones out, I'm simply just too lazy.

    Something on malloc,calloc,free,realloc would be useful.
