A Word of Wisdom
Word of Wisdom: Never create an infinite loop which writes data to a file.
Within 5 seconds it fills up 30 MB of HD space...
Within a couple hours or less your entire HD will be full.
Yeah....i had a fun experience with that today...huge 30 MB files just by letting my program run for 5 seconds...totally by accident too. I was just trying to get a guy to ANIMATE walking!!!! Stupid DirectX....#&#%^%^....on the other side...i have accidentally created a small type of trojan/virus....wow....good thing i changed the code so it doesnt do that anymore...it could have given me some problems...heh heh.
Ouch. That happened to me before too.
never put pixel plotting into an infinite loop either, it quickly shut down the computer I was working on, playing with directx. (forgot to check for screen bounds)
I'm pretty sure I ran through all the video memory in no time.
Luckily it wasn't my computer.
There's loads more like this waiting for you to fall into. That is what makes a good programmer!
Words of Wisdom: mixing curry powder in milk is not a good idea.
*laughing* I pulled one of those the other day. It wrote a whole gigabyte in about 8 seconds. Woops.
