    Yeah, I don't even have the confidence to do an ASCII game. My confidence is severely shaken to where I feel like I'm a complete noob in C++ even though I've been doing it for 17 years. I'm still...

    Well, after 17 years of dabbling in it, it is embarrassing to admit, but yes I have no confidence in my abilities at all. I went to college hoping to turn my love of game programming into a career,...

    One problem. You are assuming I'm some noob looking to learn C++, which I am not. I have been programming in some form for 16+ years now. My wife and son's health has made me realize I need to turn...

    We have two here, but one is only accessible to Indiana University students. The local library for the city has only the Teach Yourself books and DUMMIES series. When I asked why they simply replied...

    The question I have is which list should I invest in? You have quite a large list while the web sites recommended books are smaller.

    I suck at giving advice. That is why I don't post much on any forums. I'll keep my recommendations to myself and leave it to those who have a better grasp on this than I do :).

    Didn't know, can't afford the books that are considered good because they cost more than I make (which is nothing). I don't work, spend my days taking care of my wife and son. Both have FSH Muscular...

    I bought both the ebook and hard copy. Alex, while I have yet to read it, I did flip to the end to see if your book suffered from what all beginner books suffer from, and to my great surprise it...

    Yes, I understand infinite loops. The problem is that the way the sentence is structured is how my mom, wife, and father-in-law speak to me. If I say I'm going to get something that is usually how...

    The part that got me mad though, is even though I didn't get it (the thread topic was Programmer Jokes, which to me changed my mindset from programming to the programmer so when I read it it made no...

    Hmm...jokes must just be lost on me because I never even thought of that when I read it. I was told it was obvious, but I've been programming off and on as a hobby for 14 years and when I read it I...
  18. Programmer Jokes: Is it really that obvious?

    I already know I'm dumb in regards to jokes, but someone told me this joke was obvious (later it was explained to me), but I wanted to know.

    A mother said to her programmer son, "While you're out,...

    It was that way at IVY Tech, was told by the CS advisers that it was the same at Indiana University, and it is that way at DeVry University (so I was forced to settle with what I had available to me...

    I use to think GPA meant a lot too, til I teamed up with a friend who had a 4.0 GPA and didn't know jack about programming after getting his degree. Last I talked to him he was working at Walmart. If...
