I received a big box with the mail today, containing a tiny cody figurine Kiss

Darn, it worked a couple months ago Sad

Since KenR asked in PM, here's how to obtain the PlatformSDK, taken from the ASM community messageboard. No reason to be limited to 925 functions and a cruddy interface ^_^

Quoting Morris from the thread linked above:

Quote
The "template" URL for older PSDKs is:

http://download.microsoft...k/update/win98mexp/en-us/build/FULL/PSDK-FULL.num.cab

Now, the build might be:
2601.0          (August 2001 edition)
3590.2          (November 2001 edition)
3639.1          (May 2002 edition)
3663.0          (July 2002 edition)
3672.1          (August 2002 edition)
3718.1          (October 2002 edition)
3790.0          (February 2003 edition)
2600.2180       (PSDK XP SP2 edition)

For each build, the num should be iterated from 1 till you get a cab file smaller than all the others (usually the cab files are 25MB in size).

The last PSDK with htmlhelp v1 is 3639.1 (May 2002 edition).

"Refurbished" has a bad sound to it, though. Especially "refurbished harddrive".
7856  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: API-Guide 3.7: A Windows API Programming Reference on: October 01, 2006, 07:02:17 PM
Looks a bit impractical to me... I use the PlatformSDK from May 2002, afaik the last htmlhelp v1 release before MS switched to the crappy new htmlhelp system.

I only get ~1700 hits... but I did use quotes around the words smiley

The thing with AGP is that it *is* being phased out, and greedy corporate bastards have realized this, so "new" AGP cards are often more expensive than their PCI-e counterparts - at least here. And pci-e has been around for long enough now that it shouldn't be an extra expense to get a board with it.

17" TFT is great, I've got two of them. Do mind the refresh rate if you're going to watch movies or play games... well, shouldn't be a much of a problem with today's TFTs, unless you're picky. But not higher than 25ms or you might get bad ghosting.
7859  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Buying New PC. Suggestions? on: October 01, 2006, 06:04:08 PM
If you can get a core2duo CPU for a reasonable price, go for it - kickass performance and low power usage (and thus heat generation). Speficially core2duo, not just "core" - stupid intel for having confusing naming schemes. If that's too expensive, probably go for an amd64 (should be cheap, and lower power usage than pentium4).

If you want affordable graphics but still okay performance, a GeForce 6600 should be okay - and cheap by now, since it's "last year's model".

512meg ram, or a gigabyte if you can get it cheap. Less than 512 is going to be a pain.

Humm... there's probably more. Do you need a monitor, dvd burner, etc?

Just for fun, here's a 1kb C (well, C++) version, that has proper system return code smiley

Got this from slashdot, so the site will probably soon be unavailable for a bit tongue

I usually hate fancy computer cases, but some of these look pretty good IMHO: http://suissacomputers.com/
7862  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: [FBSL] LZO compressor (GPL is viral and evil, kthx) on: October 01, 2006, 11:46:47 AM
Section 0 of the GPL, with my emphasis:
Quote
The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
language.

Section 2b of the GPL, again with my emphasis:
Quote
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.

And the viral nature of the GPL is cemented with this clause:
Quote
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.

You might also want to check out the GPL faq, I'll quote a pretty relevant part of it right here:
Quote
Q: If a library is released under the GPL (not the LGPL), does that mean that any program which uses it has to be under the GPL?
A: Yes, because the program as it is actually run includes the library.
7863  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: [FBSL] LZO compressor on: October 01, 2006, 11:26:58 AM
So, you've got a special non-GPL license for LZO? smiley
7864  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: [FBSL] LZO compressor on: October 01, 2006, 09:29:35 AM
I'd like a copy of the FBSL source code, please.
7865  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Tiny 'Touch' 32 bits program in C (3 kb) on: October 01, 2006, 09:10:24 AM
Yay for people who don't care about standards. Professional? *cough*
7866  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Buying New PC. Suggestions? on: October 01, 2006, 09:08:10 AM
Make sure the computer has pci-e and not AGP! It's getting harder by the day to find AGP video cards.
7867  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: HD noise distracting on: September 30, 2006, 05:35:04 AM
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_memory says that the write cycle is probably around 1million for normal flash, and I would think/hope these drives are a bit better than that.

7869  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: HD noise distracting on: September 30, 2006, 01:59:35 AM
Much less noise, much faster speed (fragmentation basically becomes irrelevant), less heat, less power consumption, no chance of mechanical failures. I wouldn't mind one of those for my primary drive (windows + apps + source/documents + a few games), then move everything else to a NAS or DAS(?).

Which newer solid-state disks are those and what are the access times and transfer rates? Wink
Haven't seen any benchmarks, but this is the one I was thinking about. I also think somebody mentioned it here at DC not too long ago. Well, there's an italian article that I butchered up with babelfish, as far as I can tell we're speaking 50MB/s xfer rates, and insanely low access/seek time. And a pricetag of $950 >_<
7871  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Tiny 'Touch' 32 bits program in C (3 kb) on: September 29, 2006, 07:50:12 PM
Now you got the sources, you can do it smiley
Personally I prefer telling 1 that is equal to True when successfull and 0 that is equal to 'False' when failed... It's just another point of view!
Not if you ever have to deal with makefiles or the like.
(emphasis is mine).
7872  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Tiny 'Touch' 32 bits program in C (3 kb) on: September 29, 2006, 04:50:38 PM
You really should return '0' since that's the standard returncode for success...
7873  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The $39 Experiment on: September 29, 2006, 04:48:28 AM
Heh, nice cheesy

EDIT: he certainly did put a bit of effort into it - I couldn't be arsed writing that many silly praises just to get a few free treats of that kind. But funny nonetheless.

Oh, and if people start doing this on a larger scale, it won't continue working for long.

Haha, great cheesy

Too bad that's only part of it, I assume? I WANT MORE! Kiss

"Hi!"
"Uh, hi boss..."
"So, watcha doing?"
"Spankin' the monkey".
