    Thumbs up Thanks!

    A quick thanks for existing.....

    My son is an 11 year old in his second C++ programming course long distance learning with Stanford University. He (& I) have learned in a vacuum, with no help from the public school system. Stanford is great, but brief in their lecture presentations, and it can take days for his tutor to email a response to a question (which is why I've been learning alongside him, just to provide someone to bounce ideas off).

    Tonight I found this site - and think that I've gone to heaven! I was able to cruise through the threads on prime numbers & functions, and gather enough general info so that his lesson was finally clear to me, and I know will be clear to him when he sees the discussions.

    Thanks to all who keep this running! We may not post often, but I think that we finally have found the resource that we've been lacking.

    Glad you found a helpful resource. To keep my biting criticizm to a minimum, be sure and read the FAQ, it's got a lot of helpful information in it. Additionally, if you post code samples, be sure and use:
    [code]
    ... your code goes in here, between those tags
    [/code]

    It keeps your indentation and stuff so it looks nice and readable.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    Our pleasure. Anything I or any of the other mods/staff can do please lets me know. (This of course goes for all you user's out there ), and of course as Quzah pointed out, almost tactfully I might add *gasp*, don't forget to check out the tutorial's, announcements, and the various FAQ's (listed in the announcements). Doing this will hopefully keep quzah on the civil side .

    Good luck with your sons course etc, lemme know anythin I can do,

    Wooo hooo somone who actually reads those things! You don't know how happy you just made me.


    Oh, and on a similar note I want to point out to everyone on the boards who happens to read this that here is a clear cut case where we could have a "younger user" on here. The PG-13 rule is important, follow it .

    (All replies to the second paragraph reply on the New Rules thread on the General Discussions board, this is the C board after all)
