C++ namespaces and VS.Net I'm a bit unsure on how you're "supposed" to work with namespaces in C++. Say, you have a headerfile declaring a class inside a namespace, something like this: namespace foo { class bar { void somefunction(); void someotherf...

UN and the US. Explain this to me... Ok, for ages now, the US has seemed to say the UN was useless, couldn't make or carry out decisions, needed reforms, and generally using that as an excuse for doing their own thing (such as the Iraq war). But now that reforms were being attempted, gu...

[4e4] Definitions of zombies, ninjas and.... Well, how strict are the definitions of the 4 elements? Are zombies dead half-rotten people who've been brought back to life by magic? Or how about the ones in Halo? They seemed pretty zombie-like, but would they qualify here? and ninjas? Are...

DirectInput and localization Been playing around with DirectInput lately, but there's one thing I'm wondering about. How does it deal with international keyboards? How do I detect which non-US keys are pressed? As far as I know, I get an array of 255 chars, each represe...

Any Windows gurus? Retrieving XP Product key I need a bit of help here, I'm afraid. :( I was asked to fix someone's computer. After fighting with spyware and weird errors for a few hours, I decided to just reinstall Windows and start over. All went fine until it asked for the product key. The...

C++0x no more Aw, when I saw the thread title I thought it was some overdramatic "C++0x is ruined! We might as well stick with C++03 now" thread. And then it turns out you're just making a perfectly reasonable point about the delay turning it into C++1x. How...

How to get off the ground? Quote:Original post by Tsakara We're to the stage where we want to start working on programming, getting concept art made, starting to build the world. The problem is no one in our group has the foothold in that field. We need to find pro...

C#-esque properties in C++? I'm not sure I see the big deal. With properties, you can write "x.y = 42;". Without, you have to write "x.y() = 42". (or "x.y(42)" which is even shorter) A whopping two extra characters in the worst case. Is that really a problem? Why are p...

Backpacking in Europe Assuming you can find an affordable way to get around (interrail?), keep in mind that travel times are actually pretty short. Europe is a fairly small continent, so it probably won't break your schedule to drop by something far away from the direct L...

MS to sell Windows 7 without IE in Europe EC baawws Quote:Original post by Toolmaker Instead, the EC explicitly wants Microsoft to allow consumers to choose which browser they want to use. And that's a bad thing? Seems a fair goal to me. Which is why the EU is not happy that IE8 gets removed. The go...

Team Foundation Server We use it at my workplace, and the one thing that most stands out to me is the performance. Or lack of same. It is amazingly sluggish, at checking in/out, at merging files, at everything. What really amazes me is that for some reason, if a merge...
