    Were you the troll behind RyanC? *whacks*

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    He apparently triggered Salem's limit break by posting the same nonsensical questions over and over.

    Hey!

    I've been good. I've more or less moved on to Android, Javascript, and Python development with some PHP thrown in there when I find a Drupal bug. I've haven't really touched C++ in some time now.

    How about you?

    Oh, I finished college, was hoping that I'd get a decent job in software but no such luck. In my country, the market is saturated (if you don't want to be a code monkey), and unfortunately it took be too long to find out... Programming remains a hobby.

    I've been quite into x86 assembly recently, been obsessed with trying to bootstrap an entire OS from absolute scratch, with raw binary, like how the pioneers did it back in the 80s. Long story short, it's a path to madness!...
