    I apologize. Good bye.

    I'm sorry if I was so confusing in the past. I'm sorry I had to bother everyone about my own programming so much. I promise to be more socialble in an understanding way. I apologize.

    Thank you for your time. I appreciate all the help everyone has given me in the past and I'm glad I could be a part of your group. It's given me a vent so many times, and I'm afraid it's back to reality for once. I really shouldn't be spending much time here, it's getting in the way of the real life I should be taking care of. Again, I appreciate everything everyone has done for me and hope to hear from you all soon. You can all reach me at doubleanti@hotmail.com or maybe once in a while I might check for PMs here, but I cannot make any guarantees. You can also reach me on AOL Instant Messenger under 'doubleanti'. Thanks everyone for your help, and I hope one day I can return.

    Good bye.

    I'm sad to see you go... You will be missed, thanks for your time, the laughs, and your experience.

    Good Luck with real life!

    DA dont leave. No reason to. We are all given the same 24 hours in a day - its how we allocate them that is different. But totally leaving is just introducing less balance in your life, especially in your time. Simply because now you are going to invest the time spent here into another area, this causing that area to become out of balance and eventually you'll be spending too much time with it.

    In the future you are going to have a million things demanding time from you (it gets worse after uni and even worse with family). You just have to allocate and prioritize your time. I know you love programming, but you are also in school. We've all been there at one time or another. Just remember pal that the key to everything in life is balance.

    My suggestion to you, as a friend, is to write down all the things that are requiring your time. Figure out how you can allocate certian chunks of time to each thing and then try that for a couple of weeks. The phrase, "I don't have time", is not good. We all have time, but we all don't make time. So if this board and/or programming is taking too much time, just force yourself to allocate a certain chunk of time and dont go past that. Then allocate some time for your studies (I recommend 2 to 3 hours per credit hour - maybe more for calc).

    If anything get your stuff done during the week for school and then use the weekend to unwind and do what you enjoy. This got me through college and while not always possible to get everything done during the week, you still need time to unwind or college will drive you crazy.

    This will become quite evident when you start attending university. Demands on your time only get worse the older you get and the more responsibilities you take on.

    We have talked a great deal in AOL PMs and I respect you greatly. I'm just trying to warn you to not get into the habit of saying I don't have time, when you really may not know how much time you have. Remember - balance. And if you find that something does not fit in your time or priorities, then by all means, dump it because you really don't have time for it. But don't dump the board or programming before you really analyze your time allotments. So don't automatically say you don't have time unless you really know that you don't.

    Myself, I need large chunks of time to get things done. My wife, however, only needs 15 to 20 min here and there. Everyone is different so this might not fit you at all. In college I needed a large slice of time to get my work done - small slices really did not help me much. My wife though got bored with large slices of time so short slices worked much better for her. Just get into a pattern and stick to it. You really will be surprised at how much time you have. But, if something really stands out as taking too much time, either drop the allotment of time for it, or remove it altogether.

    I would suggest getting a day planner as well for your college years. It may sound very 'geek-like' but it helped me a lot. Also, w/o my day planner today - I'd be lost.

    Just trying to help. Time management is not an easy thing to learn.

    Unhappy Why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Why are you leaving doubleanti? You will be missed a lot, the board won't be the same without you. I'll try to check with you on AIM....... Good luck man, it's been a pleasure.
    There are some real morons in this world please do not become one of them, do not become a victim of moronitis. PROGRAMMING IS THE FUTURE...THE FUTURE IS NOW!!!!!!!!!

    Personally, I prefer malloc()

    You silly guy you....

    DA, you don't really have to leave, just visit less often. I for one would hate to see you go. But if you do decide to take a hiatus from our little home-away-from-home then I wanted to say good luck with college.

    I'm sorry I had to bother everyone about my own programming so much
    No need to apologize for that. That's half the reason we're all here on this board. We're here to get help where we need it,
    offer help when we can and post code/apps to show-off what
    we've learned.

    You weren't (sp?) bothering us. But I do expect a win2k version of Aktif

    Awww...DA, don't go. Or, if you feel you must, then at least visit back every once in a while, possibly promoting Aktif...and an XP/2k version would be nice

    Oh well, later!

    Perhaps you could malloc( (week *), 1, sizeof(justOneDay)) for us all here? No need to go cold turkey!
    Code:
    if( numeric_limits< byte >::digits != bits_per_byte )
        error( "program requires bits_per_byte-bit bytes" );
    24bbs.cpp

    later, DA, I will keep in touch with you on IM like I always do.

    Promise to come back and visit occasionally...maybe on weekends....you are a great programmer.

    There was a question about graphics I wanted to ask you anyways....you could probably help me out a lot with this problem I am having...I will ask you about it on AIM next time I see you on...
