    Eternally Confuzzled

    I finally got around to making my own web site for posting my tutorials and such. Rather than just put up a good looking site with just BS content, I took my binary search tree tutorials and updated them all over the course of about four days. All in all, I'm pleased with the result. I made everything (especially the code) more consistent across the three articles, added sections that I felt needed to be added for more complete coverage, and discovered (then promptly fixed) a handful of errors. When I find some time to play with Photoshop, I'll replace the lame ASCII art with proper images.

    Since I'm slightly biased, what do you guys think about the updates (and the site design if you feel the need to comment)?

    Prelude,

    Well you and I have not always been on best terms.. but your website is great. You have incorperated a lot of good web design techniques.

    Two questions:

    1. Did you actually have the words "Brain Vomit" trademarked? Why?

    2. The lady who sat beside of me on my plane trip from GSP- worked in Atlanta. She really did not have alot of nice things to say about it (Atlanta). She and her husband live in Anderson SC and drive two + hours to jobs in ATL. Do you find alot of people living in SC, TN and AL that commute to ATL for jobs!

    No, and I abused the <acronym> tag to explain why the TM symbol is there.

    I don't know of any, and quite frankly, that sounds crazy.

    Now that's how a usable website should look like. Although I wouldn't have named the tutorial section "brain vomit".

    Success!

    SUCCESS!

    Perhaps that should be the name of the entire site?

    That white thing in the background is kinda annoying by the way.

    Very nice, Prelude! (for a girl)

    No seriously - nice layout - easy to read and navigate. I'm just wondering - is there a story behind the term, "eternally confuzzled"?

    edit: Nevermind. I uh, should've actually READ your site, huh? Which brings me to my next point: Good content - it was quite entertaining and well written.

    If it works in firefox, it is good enough for me.

    Really, though, it is a really nice layout, I like it.
    To code is divine

    Confuzzlement is indeed a pleasant state.

    The site looks as good as the content. Thanks.

    Very nice Prelude.
    Chalk up another for finding that background annoying.
    Also I would replace the dark brown on the code with white and syntax colour the code. This could be achieved using sunlights cpp to html converter or im sure you could come up with its equal in 30 mins
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    When using IE the binary search II code looks good, but when you run it on firefox or opera, long lines overlap the center line. Everything else looks good, though.

    A tad disappointed to find no 'brain food' as a prelude(tm) to 'brain vomit', particularly given the reference to the 'wonderful...gourmet chef'.

    I'm hungry now.

    the site looks nice, haven't read the "brain vomit" yet though, but the dark brown code boxes aren't very pleasant, making them lighter would be better imho.
