    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    It's the intent that matters, twomers.

    What's funny though is I was thinking exactly the same thing -- about Send.Virus, I mean.

    Eh -- what? You mean, prototype Hack() (not hack())? [/edit]

    Look, I should have turned my computer off by now.

    You don't have to prototype functions, in C at least. You might get warnings, but hey.

    It's not C or C++, it's 1337! -- or was that lolcode?

    I knew I could.

    You too. Thought you were gone!

    I wouldn't be too worried, dwk... his hack function has no return type (unless it's a constructor), his if statement is an If statement, his virus sending method is the wrong way around, surely, and doesn't call a function... just states something without a ;. I think we're safe.
    Haha, yeah he's got a lot of bugs in that bit of code.

    Mentioning keyloggers and things of that nature is clearly stated as being against the rules. I hardly see how that's picky.
    I'm not saying that's being picky, I'm just going by history that has nothing to do with this.
    his virus sending method is the wrong way around, surely, and doesn't call a function... just states something without a ;. I think we're safe.
    You can't go by that. This is a simple fix...

    Since this thread is going nowhere (or is it?)...

    I changed my avatar for a colorful one. I don't know if it looks good or if it looks horrible.
