There's a huge advantage: It's keeping the newbies out like nobody's business. Why, I'll bet we could even have a civilized, intelligent conversation here - for the first time in God knows how long. But I'm too lazy to start one.

sorry, couldn't help but notice that the unregistered below has a signature...the signature of a member here, toaster. Just thought it was weird.

Oh, and BTW, I would think that some of these 'uncivilized, unintelligent newbies' would just flood other forums like FD (but that's not that big a loss now, is it ;) )

This weekend I have managed to finally complete Max Payne (Sat dormant for quite a while) as well as almost complete Blood Omen 2..........

I have also managed to read a load...........

Wouldnt have managed without the boards being caput!!!....maybe we should shutdown regularly every couple of months.......just so I can get things done on the weekend :) ;)

eh... he just faked the signature thing with a couple underscores and a comment about a toaster.

let's see... should i start a masturbation thread on this forum, too?

or maybe i'll just ask everyone this intelligent topic question:
do you believe time is a 4th dimention, without a definite beginning or end like the other 3 dimentions? or is time pretty much undefined for the future and discounted for the past?

I actually managed to get half way through Knuth vol. 2 today because Cprogramming was technically offline. Of course, my boss was not particularly happy about my sitting in the break room for 6 hours straight reading a book.

>or is time pretty much undefined for the future and discounted for the past?
The best theory for time that I have seen is that of the multiverse where every moment in time is its own universe and every new moment creates another universe. It seems far more reasonable than our own primitive perception of "time" being the reality of all that is.

Um, I dunno, but I can access the site via domain address...and I've been able to the whole time even when everyone else was saying they couldn't. :dunno: Whoops, can't use that smiley...

well now when the board is working we can get back to busnies..Why doesn't this work? and I need to know today before noon.



void main ()
{
char *str = "Some stuff",
*new_str;

new_str = malloc ( strlen ( str ) );
strcpy ( new_str, str );

free ( new_str );
}

Haha. This is what I call a good example of code reuse. :D:D

It does not work 'cos it has been posted on GD board instead of being compiled and run correctly.

Wait...Who's Barjor at FD then?? Cuz isn' that what you posted over there, Bassy?

It's so hard to keep track of these damned cross-board handles...
