Its not as if the number of posts matters. I had this board in my favorites for ages before I really started spending time and actually posting. Its what you get out that matters more than what you put in.

If like me the satifaction of fooling around on GD is enough...then hey....:rolleyes:

I don't remember for sure. I believe it was over two years ago.... because that is when I started C++.

My first question was about system("pause"); I should have read the FAQ! :)


Oh... and I remember when davidp came on, but I think it was just under David wasn't it?

Yeah, when I first came on, I posted just as David. Then I became a member with my name as David, but I never logged on, I just posted without logging on. Finally in late 1999, after I had been posting for months, but not using my account, I couldnt remember my password or anything so I made a new one with my last initial (DavidP) and started using it. So that is what I have been using since then.

There is at least one among us who has been here longer than I have (and I don't mean the webmaster).

DavidP
10-27-2001, 02:33 PM
wow...a person here longer than Stee (Salem)? Its definitely not Sunlight...he came around when I came. I remember him saying that. Who could it be? Not doubleanti...DA came a little bit after I came....not Ken...not gamegod....maybe govtcheez? how long has govtcheez been here? hmm....I give up...who is it?

Heh, you'd love to believe that I've been here forever, wouldn't you? It jsut seems like it :D

I actually happened to wander in here last February when I was assigned to rewrite a program in C instead of Cyrano. I'd like to say that I was always interested in C coding, but I wasn't in the slightest. The first time I ever saw a program in it, I thought to myself "What a horrible language - it looks like it fell apart!" (because the only otehr langs I had written in were, by and large, typing heavy langs like VB and ObjectPAL - it just didn't seem like there was enough code there to do anything useful.).

The world has never been the same.

My first question: How do I send info out a serial port?

stee's response - Your question doesn't make any sense.

:D

LOL....



I think mine was how to get email info from the windows wab file. This was for an email client that I'd written, and I wanted the facility to store/retrieve names/emails. As soon as I wrote it I though that everyone would think I was a wouldbe virus writer and ignore me...... Therefore I added something like..."Oh.. and this is not for a virus"

Looking back I now realise how dumb this thread looked.......:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :p

.....I am still awaiting a response.... j/k :p :p :p

I finally joined (after quietly perusing) a year ago Sept. I think.

First post: How do I increase thread priority in Windows

Answer: SetThreadPriority(), but it doesn't really matter because Windows will give your thread a chance when it damn well feels like it!

Gotto love a programmer's sense of humor!

Hey Govt, were's the useless fact? I've got that one memorized :)

I joined the old board June of this year... it was a beutiful place back then, not all aclutter with crap posts and people who just try to run their post count up.

I remember RTFAQ (his name was something like that), he would hang around the C++ board and reply "LOOK IN THE FAQ!" to everything.. hehe.. that guy was great.
