Re: 1199: "Silence"

I've always wanted to make a collection of people failing to play 4'33''.

Might be even funnier if he accidentally slipped into the 1712 Overture: http...

Re: New to C: Please help!

Since this seems to be a school assignment, I don't want to spoil it too much. There are many approaches to multiplication, some slow and some fast. On the slow side is the simple "add A, B times". Another method is to take advantage of the doubling properties of shifts. For this, you will...

The way out is to generate a Trap exception and let the exception handler handle it. Bonus if you have a watchdog timer set.

Re: Writing My Own Logic Gates in Python

First, I would say that it is difficult to model digital circuits in a traditional programming language. The concurrent properties of logic gates are very different from those of sequential programming, and hardware design languages (Verilog and VHDL) reflect that. Basically, for each logic gate, yo...
