    Did you know...

    Did you know M$ messed up on VC++? Yep, according to one of my friends; "The name Visual C++ thats M$'s way of saying EVERYTHING is drag and drop 'cept some code! Therefore, they messed up badly."

    I think it's just plain wrong that he even thought of it, was VC++ suppost to be advanced VB? So far, I think not.
    THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE 127.0.0.1

    For one, repeating other people's saying without an oppinion or even proof is what I'd call rumors. Don't believe them.

    As a matter of fact, Visual C++ is a lot more visual than normal C++ for sure. So I'd say, the name matches the product. If you have first hand experience that indicates something else, please share.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
