    New Year's Resolutions

    Post by miller on Mon Jan 02, 2012 2:21 pm

    Just for fun, I figure it'd be nice to have a place to write down some New Year's resolutions. Heck, once you've written it down it becomes a little more real. tongue

    1) Program/implement the software projects that have been just ideas for years. I've always thought about some and never got around to actually doing it.

    2) Work-out again. I worked out last year for about 4 months... but after summer ended, I haven't been to the gym since.

    3) Go on more dates. I've always been slow when it came to this subject.

    Haha, I agree with that. What coding language?

    C/C++ because I think Java is for newbs.

    Plus plenty of Perl.

    Yay, I do C++ as well. Very fast and cool.

    I'm working with Java because I am a newb. Razz

    Every time I've tried to work with C++, I have a hell of a time with GUI and a harder time finding good resources (80% of even basic examples I'll find will have compile errors, for example). Razz

    I'm hoping to have some success with cross-platform programming in Java as a starting point, and then transition to C++ when I have better experience. I've done mostly scripting (PHP/JS) in my past, which offers quick and dirty workarounds, easy visual feedback, etc. So I never developed the discipline and structure to do programming. Some of my biggest struggles are with organizing what should happen where, because I've become so accustomed to having full access to everything all the time (e.g. the DOM). But I'm figuring it out more and more as I go. =P

    Are you sure that you've included (at top)

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std

    You usually don't need the second one at higher levels and stuff, but when you first start namespace std saves some time.

    Then do the basic "Hello World!" program:
    Spoiler:

    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;

    int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
    {
    cout<<"Hello World!"<<endl;
    }

    I'm not sure what the problem was at the time. It was a long time ago. But yeah, I'd take something super simple like that and get errors. I must have not known about some requirement/configuration. I'm using NetBeans now and probably wouldn't run into such trivial problems.

    Yup, works fine now. Only problem is that it isn't as helpful with suggestions as with Java. It's really awesome to be able to type something as if I included it and with a couple keystrokes have Netbeans add the includes for me. I'm curious if it's supposed to with C++ or not. It is primarily meant for Java, though (there was just a high demand for C/C++ support, I expect).

    I come from an Electronics Engineering background... so C/C++ is much more prized for the reasons NightTiger listed... essentially it's a lot faster. So, it's a lot better for programming firmware for microcontrollers. Granted, I am almost primarily a Computer Science type guy now.


    Plus, I agree with NightTiger that you're past problems probably have to do with environment variables. Maybe a missing library or something.

    Off topic much?

    Yep, my New Year's Resolution is to not have a New Year's Resolution. Don't question the infinite regress paradox that is created. It is a New Year's Resolution that has worked many years for me. I enjoy it.

    Well, we are in offtopic discussions, so yeah. =P

    I was thinking Snapfoo was missing a library, yeah.

    Yes, you are off the topic of a thread in the off topic forum. Just thought it was funny no one was actually posted their New Year's Resolution.

    It's not really a resolution for me, but I plan on going out with someone soon, despite my anti-dating personality.

    As for my own resolution....... I don't really have any; Too many things to fix to list them all out. I guess my foal is to survive another year, as any good year should.

    I wonder if the grindfest that is Tyant is most suited for people who do not have a significant other to take up there time. But than again, I guess most games are that way.

    There is so much variety in relationships that I can't imagine that are rules for that sort of thing, Icyhaze. I will say, however, that the type of guy who doesn't date a lot and they type of guy who plays online CCG's a lot have a lot things in common, so it makes sense that the two show up so often. But, there are certainly no rules, and no assumptions.

    How about tendency? And not rules. I just feel there is a corrilation. I have known guys who have been dumped by their girlfriends for playing too much World of Warcraft or way back when too much Counter Strike. So I feel that there is a tendency for a certain amount of game time does not mix well with relationships.
