    Pointer syntax screws me up every time. I know what I want to do, but often I must compile to see if I used the correct syntax. I've gotten much better at it recently, but sometimes it takes a failed build and error message to assist me.

    But this does not mean I cannot program in C/C++. I think it says a lot when you can interpret the cryptic error messages returned by the compiler and fix your issues on the next build or compile. Sometimes the hardest part about C/C++ is getting used to the insane compiler messages.

    I failed the last C++ test I was given at a job interview and did not get the job.

    The next company hired me because I could find the answer I needed and had what they termed 'life experience'. They just wanted to see some of my code and find out if I would fit into their team.

    Six months later I was assigned as a team leader because more people had been hired.

    One of my team was the person who failed me in the C++ test.....

    Keep plugging away Bubba. You are good at this, don't let the HR muppets convince you otherwise.


    EDIT:
    'life experience' == old bastard

    Red and Yellow... I'm actually kind of sad that you don't know. Actually there are some new guys now but they aren't as important.

    Can I be a programmer and like candy at the same time? Or do I have to forget, and concentrate on programming?

    No, they have mascots for other colors too, Red and Yellow are still friends. That's what I meant. They don't matter as much because you don't see them in commercials as often.

    Ahh.. the chocolate puppet thingies from the ads. Smarties are much better, but they are probably a local brand.

    I avoid all commercial TV and any ads I can, we have two commercial free(ish) TV stations here I watch for news/docos.

    I don't even know if the ads are shown on TV here, although they used to be.

    Oi? I've seen 'em everywhere I've been so far. But I don't like the way their shells persist long after the chocolate's gone, it decreases my eating rate
