Re: Crypto for auth and verification on a website

Sounds to me like making a simple login form is going to be the simplest and least time consuming. You don't even have to make a signup. If you really want to go with this route, you can probably get away with a self-signed certificate kept on your machine and the server and not distributed (basical...

Re: Worst Food Decisions, or WHY DID I EAT THAT URGRGRBLEH

Some years back when I was still working at a grocery store, I got off close to midnight after working an early shift. I was exhausted and for some reason chugged three cans of coke. I hadn't really eaten all day. I went to bed, which the head of the bed was against one wall and the foot was towards...

Re: HTML5 or Flash?

Microsoft develops great products, and they have a ton of resources. Silverlight is a good product, but it's not popular enough and the open source community will never support it. Flash did a lot for the internet, the most important of which is that it got us away from having to install codec packs...

Re: The Liquor Thread

At 25 bucks a fifth, I'd gladly pony up the 5 more for E.T.Lee, which you are completely correct in recommending I guess that's where the difference is in terms of price to quality. Over here, JBB is $18 per 750, Elmer T Lee is $30. As for Evan Williams, personally I'm not a fan of the standard bot...

Re: Cocktails

Made a sort-of-margarita, but with coriander (leaves, aka cilantro) steeped in the tequila, and a dash of fish sauce to create a kinda Thai theme. Didn't expect to be able to taste the coriander - was just an experiment - but the drink was very pleasant. The coriander and fish sauce gave it another...

Re: Starting out learning programming

While I sit here typing high level commands, my code is running off and killing kittens and scaring young children! Funny thing, there was a debate I had with one of the .NET developers at my work. There was an array of Int64's that had to go into the database, since there was no reason to query th...

Re: Favorite home experiments

Not sure this counts as science, or just plain ol playing with fire, but filling a 2 liter bottle with mist/aerosol from a can of WD-40 and igniting it with a barbecue lighter makes a nice little effect. Bottle could potentially catch fire, but I never had a problem.

Re: The Liquor Thread

If you like rye, I find Wild Turkey Rye to be the best in that respect. Ha ha, no. Rittenhouse. Routinely wins as best whiskey period, and runs between $17 and $22 per 750. Admittedly, finding it can be a problem. I agree that Rittenhouse is good, but I personally prefer Wild Turkey. I get Wild Tur...

I use seamonkey, but I really liked it better before 2.0. I mean, I still prefer the interface over firefox, but since ever since 2.0 it consumes about as much memory as firefox.

Re: Starting out learning programming

I like C: I've been using it since 1980, but I wouldn't recommend it as a first language because it is too low level. Serious use of C involves pointers, and IMHO forcing complete newbies to learn about pointers is not wise. My first language was javascript with webpages, and I went directly to C. ...

Best place for references to the .NET framework will be msdn:

As for the form, I can't really help you there, but when I read your post it sounds like you want a floating textbox with no window behind it; is that really what you want?

Re: vb.net vs the world

I think C# is the only one in this list that makes use of the .NET framework. Note that I'm not saying that Microsoft aims C# as the default language for everything , only for .NET. You can develop for Windows without .NET, too. "Visual Basic" is not VB.NET. As stated, Visual Basic in new...

Re: vb.net vs the world

I seem to recall that VB is the default language to be embedded in ASP constructions, which I assume you were working with in Visual Webdev? I think that apart from ASP (if that's .NET at all, but I guess it probably is), C# is the intended default language for .NET. It was Visual Webdev, but I jus...

Re: vb.net vs the world

One factor that could make a difference between the popularity of VB.NET and C# is that C# is aimed by Microsoft to be the default language for .NET, and therefore they put more effort in promoting it. Hmm... When I was playing with Visual Web Developer, the default was VB. I have a copy of visual ...

I've gotta admit, the distinction between slashes and backslashes has always seemed completely backwards to me. Naturally, when writing a slash, you start at the top and go down.
