Shouldn't there be an "RSS" button in the header near "Home" "Search" "Profile" "IRC" ....
nice idea but we are running out of space for buttons..

there's an rss button at the very bottom of each page though - but it just takes you to this very thread smiley
25935  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Best Programming Music on: February 10, 2006, 12:50:21 AM
my experience has been that it's very hard to beat lou reed for programming music.
however more important than the exact music seems to be playing the same album over and over again - helps get you in a good rhythm.

i've also had good experience with dexy's midnight runners, blondie, and danielle howle.
25936  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Just installed new hardware... ahhh on: February 10, 2006, 12:21:09 AM
this is actually a very useful post since it's a datapoint against dual monitors, which i tend to advocate to people constantly.  i wonder what it was about them you didn't like.

http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=1207.0

ps. i run two old 19" crts in 1600x1200 mode each.  i could never just use one monitor.
25937  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Source code colors: Contrast / Readability / Ergonomics on: February 10, 2006, 12:17:55 AM
the white on green on that page looks surprisingly readable, i wouldn't have guessed that.  might have to give that a try, though i have long used black on white.

[ps. another turbo pascal/c fan here; borland's turbo language tools were amazing when they came out for the pc - they must have raised a generation of programmers.  i can still see those manuals in my memoy clearly.  i want to thank my dad for getting us those tools.]

The Coding Horror Blog (http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/) just grows on me more each day.

An older article (http://www.codinghorror.c...blog/archives/000071.html) links to this 2002 paper which i think is a fantastic read, not just for programming, but for other big issues:

25947  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / How the Internet Works - radio show, parts 1 and 2 on: February 09, 2006, 04:01:54 PM

This is a radio show by Steve Gibson (the 'I' in the quotes below) and Leo Laporte
Quote
How the Internet Works, Part 2
During this 38-minute, part 2 episode of "How the Internet Works," Leo and I briefly review last week's discussion of the ICMP protocol, then discuss the operational details of the Internet's two main data-carrying protocols: UDP and TCP.

How the Internet Works, Part 1
During this 49-minute episode, Leo and I briefly discuss the 'Kama Sutra' virus that will become destructive on February 3rd. We briefly discuss PC World Magazine's recent evaluation and ranking of ten top anti-malware systems. And we begin our long-planned 'fundamental technology' series with a two-part close look at the history and detailed operation of the global Internet.

25948  Other Software / Developer's Corner / The Portable Coroutine Library (PCL) on: February 09, 2006, 03:41:07 PM
Interesting:

http://xmailserver.org/libpcl.html


Quote
The Portable Coroutine Library (PCL) implements the low level functionality for coroutines. For a definition of the term coroutine see The Art of Computer Programming by Donald E. Knuth. Coroutines are a very simple cooperative multitasking environment where the switch from one task to another is done explicitly by a function call. Coroutines are a lot faster than processes or threads switch, since there is no OS kernel involvement for the operation. Also coroutines require much less OS resources than processes of threads. The idea of writing this library started when I was testing Linux epoll functionality and performance. I initially started using the coro library by E. Toernig <froese@gmx.de> and I found the library very interesting. It was simple and yet powerful. The limitations of the coro library were both non portability and crashes when not used together with certain versions of gcc. So I decided to write a new library to address the problems aforementioned by also taking portable context switching ideas from the GNU Pth library. This library is easily portable on almost every Unix system and on Windows. It can use either the ucontext.h functionalities ( getcontext()/makecontest()/swapcontext() ) or the standard longjmp()/setjmp().
