Re: Opera, Chrome, Firefox, OR?

I use Firefox over Chrome for one reason. For some reason Chrome (well, actually Chromium) tends to crash on me with what are normal (Facebook, Youtube) websites. I'd use Chrome over Firefox if only for it's incognito mode (without having to close out of current tabs like firefox's), although that's...

Re: 0922: "Fight Club"

I think a big part of the movie was how the main character has this building up desire for chaos and mayhem shown by the creation and the character of Tyler. Neither extreme is desirable, and even though everything Tyler says makes sense, there's just as good logic for the other extreme. The main ch...

Re: "1996" Discussion

Really, for me it's not the processing power or the size of the screen, it's the price.
A calculator like the ones that TI are selling should only go for about $50.

Re: The "IT DOESN'T WORK!" thread

Thanks, after a bit of tinkering it worked well.
It didn't do what I was ultimately trying to do, but that's not the code's fault.

I'm probably going to need to reuse it though.

Re: The "IT DOESN'T WORK!" thread

Setting screen to GetVideoSurface was all that was necessary for some reason. (It was set to NULL beforehand, which may have made the blitting not work) I should put in the other things as well, just in case it gives it off, but the while(SDL_Flip(screen) == 0); freezes the program, but while(SDL_Fl...

Re: The "IT DOESN'T WORK!" thread

I'm having some trouble with C++ and SDL (ON THE HELLO WORLD EXAMPLE).
SDL_BlitSurface is returning a 2 on

Code: Select all

hello = SDL_LoadBMP("hello.bmp");
SDL_BlitSurface(hello,NULL,screen,NULL);

which is causing the program to simply close out with status 3 when SDL_Flip(screen); is declared

And Not_an_S, I like the idea of using multi-dimensional array (but your code doesnt work).

Re: Help with C++ output

I'd reccomend using a multidimensional array instead of 3 separate arrays, but that's just preference (also, it would fix the problem with having more than 10) If you use them, here's how I would fix the problem them: int playarea[width][height]; int fornum; for(i=0;i>width;i++){ for(fornum=0;fornum...

Re: 2 puppies

I couldn't grasp the fact that the correct answer was 1/3 until I thought of simulating it.
Then I realized that it is more probable for either of the puppies to be male than for a specific one, and therefore, the probability of both being male is smaller.

Re: Anyone feel they can crack this code?

I took the amount of times each letter was used. I then isolatd the letters with the number 3 (it was common) and it came up with IMKENURD, which might be something. Also, don't rule out sliding puzzles.

Re: Largest number on Twitter

My answer wasn't really meant to be taken seriously. The limitations of the variable would be the actual result of the program, as I previously stated. A program that actually could give out a number larger than the one in base 37 would simply be x being defined as an unsigned long with the largest ...

Re: Largest number on Twitter

I don't quite understand what you're saying, but what I got from it is that the code doesn't actually give off a number. Now, that is true, but it's supposed to be infinity, since as long as 1=1, x increases by one. If you add return x; to the end, it wouldn't actually be able to give off a number, ...

I saw it once, since the only station I got at that time was Fox. It was the one where he needed to find someone at a monastery, and then he needed to find a scroll there.
I really thought it would be a bad, generic show, but it was really entertaining, and I think I might want to watch it more.
