    Salems buddy

    This may seem a pointless thread, but I would love to say when I see Salem's buddy icon on his messages, it always makes me laugh. Void main geting blown up and replaced by int main. Very good, and proves the point for noobs to take notice than void main is very old-format and most compilers now days would flag an error.

    I just think its a great buddy. I hope Salem reads this cause i'd love to know where he got it

    It's called an avatar. Only idiots have buddy icons.
    System: Debian Sid and FreeBSD 7.0. Both with GCC 4.3.

    He probably wrote something in C using 13h ages ago to create his avatar. Obviously afterwards he converted the output to a gif.

    She hates you. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's what she meant.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    No, no... I think she has a school girl crush... she's playing hard to get by making fun of him and putting sand down the back of his shorts.

    One more of these and I get my ........ing people off merit badge. Hooah!

    > I hope Salem reads this cause i'd love to know where he got it
    I made it myself, over many hours with PSP.

    The hard part was grabbing enough frames of the "nuke" explosion to make for something reasonably complete and still fit in the 20K limit for Avatars. The actual explosion was sampled from a movie of one of the Trinity tests (reducing the size, reducing the colours, skipping frames).

    The rocket launcher idea was inspired by a popular FPS of the time

    The original tag line for the avatar was
    void main'ers are DOOMed
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    I see, so why is it that you are asking idiots' advice?
