    Same here. I once had a final in an INCREDIBLY easy class using QBASIC ( :shudder: ). The instructor repeated many, many times "comment your code!". So I commented EVERY SINGLE LINE (this program had about 500 lines; not a lot, but I did this in a day while thinking of a storyline). I love being known as "The Psycho" .

    usually for any coding I do, I throw in curses if I'm commenting for myself, but before the final code gets put out there, I go through and get rid of all the curses... I still leave all the sarcastic comments in there though:

    Code:
    intI=static_cast<int>(floatX);   //if you don't get it, remove it and see what happens...
    I only do that when I'm commenting a line that is overly obvious...

    Then Thantos your input box should replace numbers greater than 10 with 10 automatically, or something like that. Like the zip thing - if they try to enter text, it should beep or something to only allow them to enter numbers. They dont need a big fat dialog jumping down their throats - everyone knows users don't read prompts properly, you need to design to allow for that.

    Edit: Perhaps for the 0-10 thing, you should have chosen a slide ruler control.

    I don't really think anything of cursing at all. They're just words. However, it does offend some people, that's why I myself only cuss around people I know don't care. It's not that I purposely do so, it's just that when I'm around friends I usually don't have to watch my tongue as much.

    When you write code you do not know who is going to read it. If someone that is easily offended by cursing just happens to read your code, (s)he'll not think much of you in the future. Just like any communicated works. The only works I ever curse in are literary/musical works, because if you censor yourself in those works than your true thoughts are not being expressed. It is kind of annoying turning on artists that curse abnoxiously in their music. You know they probably put it in there to try to make it sound "cool" or something. Damn mainstream I am sillyI am sillyI am sillyI am sillying I am sillyI am sillyI am sillyI am silly on the goddamn I am sillyI am sillyI am sillyI am sillying radio need to shut the I am sillyI am sillyI am sillyI am silly up and suck a motherI am sillyI am sillyI am sillyI am sillying dick, yo!

    edit: Whoever put the "I am silly" censor in is a genius. I am NOT saying that sarcastically either.
