    We all know they love us computer nerds. I'm glad I had a girlfriend BEFORE I started programming. Otherwise I'd never get one.

    There is no Cb.

    C# is a half-step up from C...

    I'd be wary of chicks who dig assembly programmers.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    First of all I leared QBasic...
    Then I learned Visual Basic which was much better!

    And when I went the university I started learning C++ ( I'm majoring in CS ).
    none...

    Isn't C# just a object oriented language based off C and is ment to be cross platform like Java or something?

    NO!

    C + OOP= Objective C (used very often for MAC development)

    C# was the first programming language, which was developed for NGWS(Next Generation Windows Services), which uses the NGWS Runtime.

    The main parts of C# were copied from C/C++, but there are also VisualBasic features (for each loops......)

    The syntax is almost "Java-like"

    And C# was only developed for Micrsoft, so there is and won't be any platform portability (e.g. windows to linux)

    Cb == B# == C

    Therefore we could call the C programming language C flat or B sharp

    B sharp. Because the ++ means add one. So it would be B +1 i.e B sharp.

    I'd never programmed before in my life, but when I went to college I thought a CS major sounded like fun and I figured I could switch majors if I didn't like it. But now I'm addicted...

    I wanted to turn on some hot chicks and decided to learn programming. it seems like chicks dig programming and programmers specially assembly!!!!!!!!!!
    Somehow I've managed to attract a guy that's not even a computer geek... I'm still trying to figure out how I did it though!
    My programs don't have bugs, they just develop random features.

    by the way, I got into programming when I got a commodore 64 for christmas way back when. I was 8 and I tried desperately to understand the BASIC handbook that came with it. not easy for an 8 year old but I kept trying till I got older. Now, I may be more confused than I was then!

    No, no, no, there's tons of girls much more attractive than I ... I just finally found a nice guy who appreciates me for who I am, rather than being scared of my geekness! (Sheesh, I should think before I post...)
