What's everybody doing for Christmas? What is/was on your wishlist? What'd you get?

I have a Canon 1Ds Mark II and a Canon Rebel T2 on my wish list... of course I don't expect to get the Mark II, but I'm pretty sure somebody got me the T2...

as for plans, stay at home and have some family over...

happy christmas/holiday season

There's not really anything I want except maybe an electric guitar, so I didn't really ask for anything.

Feliz Navidad!

I am pulling out all the presents for my daughter and figuring out how to fit them all under the tree!!!! If anyone has a good algorithm let me know. :D

Happy Holidays everyone!

:eek: What do you mean, 'ruined' Santa Claus?


Anyway... I would recommend you dynamically allocate the space for your presents on the heap, perhaps in a linked list, with Boolean values for naughty or nice. Don't forget to free the pointers when she's done unwrapping. Of course, if you haven't wrapped them yet, I hear MFC is a good wrapper (lol... I kill myself).

If he wrote a book on C, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. :)

>If anyone has a good algorithm let me know.
Use a binomial queue, with dimensions as the priority. Or, if she was exceptionally naughty, the knapsack algorithm surely won't take too long to give you an optimum configuration.

If you're not religious, get ready to be because that's like my bible... =)

>I am pulling out all the presents for my daughter and figuring out how to fit them all under the tree!!!! If anyone has a good algorithm let me know

I can't picture you having a binary tree as a christmas tree, but mergesort! =) Or... teach your daughter to merge sort! That'd be such a geeky gift!

The list of things I want can go forever but first things come first...
A car is on top of the list (but no way that would fit under our tree).

and everything I got was crappy!

I'm too old to get stuff myself and too young to get stuff for kids that I don't have.

I wasn't really expecting much myself, so nothing specific was on the list (except for conservative, 2-color ties). Though I ended up getting a really nice Hi-Fi too. Some other stuff but that stereo is dominating my mind right now... *drool*

That's a custom job. It would have taken too long.

Two-color? Conservative?

Sounds like you're going on a church mission or something boring like that :P
