    Merry Christmas Mario!
    Well, everyone!

    Looks to be a good year next year: PS3, loads of great games, Ada 2005 coming to .NET, and a whole bunch of other stuff that I've forgotten. Meh.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    That means "Happy Christmas to you" (singular), mine said the same, but in plural - Happy Christmas to you all.

    Merry xmas and a happy new year to all on Cboard. I hope 2007 delivers all 2006 promised to deliver in the way of coding! ( sorry, really bad pun )

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main ( void )
    {
       cout << "H A P P Y  X M A S!\n";
    
       cin.get();
    
       return 0;
    }
    How sad am I, wait, dont answer that one I already know..
