    Code:
    	sockaddr_in s;
    
    //	s.sin_addr = blah;
    //	s.sin_family = blah;
    //	s.sin_port = blah
    
    	((sockaddr*) &s)->sa_family
    	((sockaddr*) &s)->sa_data

    A pointer is worth a thousand views...?

    Maybe that would explain the recent server slowdown

    I bet the server messed up. There's no way 1000+ people would go directly to this thread and not to any others.

    I don't see what's wrong with it.

    heeeheee, yeah..

    strange how I get it ....

    cuz you can create multiple pointers to view the same thing..

    hahah...

    I'm gonna go to a corner now and cry at my nerdyness....
    Sometimes I forget what I am doing when I enter a room, actually, quite often.
