After just glancing at the OP sample code, I'm pretty sure I could do the same sample dialog in pure C with  less code ... *Shrug* ... So I'm lost on an advantage there.

With C, you can't use goto without being outlawed Wink

goto EEK!

hehehe ...Gotta give you that one!  cheesy

It's one thing to use a crack for software that you have already licensed, but...
And another to use wholly pirated software, which isn't necessarily the end of the world...

but asking a programmer for help with pirated software? priceless smiley

(hehe) Yeah, that like flagging down a cop and asking where is the best place to by pot. Renegade should have given the guy the number for the local BSA, and told him to ask for "Tech Support".

That's assuming they got the right guy - a quick burial at sea seems a bit fishy to me (sorry for he pun).

Agreed, however hoisting a body on a petard for a parade through town is rather frowned on these days - And an autopsy was hardly necessary - So there wasn't much need for the carcas going forward...


Also +1 with f0dder, cutting the head off this snake, will only result in more snakes.

To quote Jack from LOST, "Are you insane?"

While debatable it's really not the central point...  cheesy ...I'm just dealing with what I had (was given) to start with (Personally I much prefer the PHP/MySQL combo). It's a "Production System" with no latitude for downtime. So... A complete conversion was/is just not in the cards at this point. However I may try it later, time permitting. Hopefully before it takes its (Access + large record set = boom) inevitably complete shit.

No, but my todo list is. Our IT department consists of only one monkey...Me.

The folks that use the report have some of the oldest machines, so it was assumed ... and never mentioned, until I got a request for some new features for the site. Ha! ...That went well.

50k???
5 years of records and counting.

Access???
Totally not my idea...

New features???
Yes, management is like that.

WTF???

Exactly... Welcome to my world.

I got stuck the last few weeks working on one of our Intranet sites coded in ASP (e.g. VB), and it just makes me want to scream every time I have to deal with it.

ASP sucked. It's no wonder MS gave up on it almost a decade ago now~! smiley tongue

Actually, I left out the best part ... It's an ASP UI, with an Access db back-end. One of the reports that pulled from a table with 50,000 records in it, was parsing the results at the page level ... Which I assumed had much to do with its 3 minute page load time.

I got it down to about 4 seconds now (with a much (more precise) finer tuned query).

WTF? Why hasn't it been redone by now? Is it THAT big?

They've not managed to make C# in any way useful for MS Office yet... Grrr... While C++ may be great in many aspects, it's still a beast.

Whereas for me, as long they don't support C++, or at least C++/CLI, on Windows Mobile I won't develop for it. C++ is just soooooooooo lovely to code in.

I'll 2nd that, I love working in C++!

Either rigidly define the data types ala C++, or completely ignore them ala PHP...That's fine. ASP/VB have generally undefined data types loosely based on rules I swear they make up on-the-fly. It's a freakin' nightmare trying to get anything done quickly with that mess.

Can't say I've ever tied the two together, but I have run across the sizeless download annoyance a few times. I'll have to watch for it in the future.

That's cool - I've just been wondering if you were dealing with a particularly difficult set of environmental conditions that made normal (a term I'm using here loosely for lack of a better one) methods ineffective.

As an example, I have a client that is a (large & small animal) vet. Some of their machines have come in for repair quite literally full of all manner of hair/fur/fuzz/I don't want to know... smiley ...I've recommended that they avoid laptops in their environment.

No. At the moment Windows Mobile is clearly at the bottom.

Well 3 Cheers for the underdog!

I can't help but wonder how much of what are you having to clean out of these machines? I've generally always just blown (with canned air) through the (air outlet) cooling system backwards and never had a problem getting dust/lint/animal hair out of a machine...Without any disassembly.
3116  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: corrupt office 2003 file on: May 01, 2011, 10:05:55 AM
Is there any AV software (client or server side) involved?

Is the PP file sender using embeded or locally linked graphics for the file (I've seen this boo-boo happen before).

Are you sure the PP file is getting to the server/client intact? If it is an Outlook/Exchange environment, try sending a known good test file to an account that is not in cached mode, and see what happens.

Also if Exchange is involved, has an ofline defrag (with esutil) ever been run on the server?

Having spent a good deal of time walking people through things. I've come to the conclusion that the reflexive clicking types just can't be helped ... Even if you add a blood curdling scream to the event.

For the rest, the graphic (and crystal clear button text) should do just fine to convey the importance of the next move.

Yepper Gotta save that one to favorites ... When I get home that is.

I'm pretty sure that site would violate the company's AUP ... Which I haven't read ... Since I wrote it... *Shrug*
3119  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: USA Deadly Tornadoes on: April 29, 2011, 06:38:14 AM

Not quite as straight-to-the-point as goingtorain.com. I had to type in my zip code, then select from a bunch of nearby locations. It was actually slightly confusing.

GoingToRain requires a zip also, but I already had it saved (long time ago). Next time you visit it jumps to the point. I saved DINAJ now too.

Yes, this is all satire. Everyone can take offense to that ad, and all it shows is that they are narrowminded idiots who feel far too insecure about their place in the world.

+1

If you showed that to a kindergarten class, they'd never see any racism. They just haven't learned it yet.

People project their own "issues" onto things. What they say about something often says just as much about themselves.

In cases like this, it's rather sad.

I wish I knew the truth behind all of this.

Truth is they are auto-magically generating a log file with a complete disregard for the privacy of the person being logged. How they choose to try and justify said behavior is irrelevant ... The intention is clear enough.
3122  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: USA Deadly Tornadoes on: April 28, 2011, 11:37:21 AM
If the media would stop trying to sensationalize the weather forecast into a carnival...People might actually start taking the damn thing seriously.

Fancy graphics and babble come flying out of their heads in such a gushing fashion, that if you don't listen carefully you will probably miss the actual "forecast". Enough with the entertaining rhetoric, just answer two questions:
Is it going to rain?
-and-
Do I need a jacket?

They've been predicting "severe" weather every day for the past month or so ... and It ain't even rained yet. And no, they weren't predicting that it was going to be severely hot & dry.

I grabbed this from the articles comments section:
Quote
Probably because those of us who spend more time on-line are more aware of what is actually going on in the country and around the world and thus have so much less respect for those who are implementing such laws for their own greedy, bigoted or just downright moronic ends...

I'd say he nailed it right there.
