Developer's Corner / Re: What's your Programming Language?
« on: November 15, 2009, 08:43 AM »
Well, I'm not that professional ...

Two of the various projects I'm regularly working on:
1) Gamers.IRC, written in a scripting language
2) eMule beba, written in a programming language

Developer's Corner / Wanted: Comparison of code beautifiers
« on: November 15, 2009, 08:37 AM »
I am currently digging through stuff like astyle, but I don't really have the time and knowledge to see which of the several code beautifiers does the most interesting stuff. Is there some kind of a comparison?

There is no way to explicitly declare pointers. In Java, everything is sort of a reference. (AFAIK.)

Where does Java provide more functionality? It doesn't even support pointers.

Best Text Editor / Re: Is this serious?
« on: November 14, 2009, 06:47 PM »
As I just read that editor review again, I'd like to add my 2 cents:

Other editors had "macro recording" as a pro. The Vim entry says "custom vim script". Now this is not about "too hard to figure out". It uses vimscript indeed, but it can also handle macros of any complexity. Type q (without a colon), add a register for that macro (like "a"), enter a bunch of Vim commands, press q again and you can play the macro any time by @a and @@. So what?

(Just to clarify that.)

Ah, and Vim's GUI might not be that impressive. But what do you need a toolbar or even a menubar for at all?
Most people here use Ctrl+S to save something, I guess. They won't use a toolbar for it. So why do they care if Vim's toolbar and menu are ugly and too short and whatever?

 :huh:

(Mine doesn't have both of them anyway.)

Its help system was another "con". Hell, what do you expect? Screenshots?
You can even use :helpgrep. Not many other editors allow this.

Having been convinced by a lot of positive reviews (also on DC :P), GVim is my default editor on Windows right now (to be honest, it has been for a couple of months now). Notepad++ (its "predecessor") is my "alternative" for some special purposes, but it is not registered with anything anymore. Vim could do everything in a better and/or more flexible way.

jm2c, as stated above.
And sorry for the bump.

I wonder if there actually is an example.

Hmm, since Java *may* use less memory than C++
... if you don't count the VM ...

, and *may* run faster than C++
... once the VM has started ...

See?

it just means that it may use more memory
That's what I call inefficient.

Java might have a garbage collector, but its major disadvantage is that you just can't collect garbage yourself, so it tends to memory hogs of a quite notable amount.

My favorite programming language is Java.
Oh God why?  ;D

It's a bit like C/C++ in many ways.
... except that you can write efficient and fast code in C++.

I'm curious about delphi... is it also an open source language?
Not actually. http://en.wikipedia....i/Embarcadero_Delphi

what's the difference with a scripting language and a programming language?
Scripting languages are usually made for a certain purpose.

General Software Discussion / Re: At last: MP3 Lossless!!!
« on: November 13, 2009, 07:45 PM »
Each and every manufactory is working at heir hardest to get lower quality, not higher.
... which is multiplied with a constant factor every time something gets "remastered", see the latest Beatles remasters with the cut-off peaks...

« on: November 12, 2009, 10:05 AM »
FLAC is an open, license-free format, MP3 is not. Unless they'll change that, they'll fail.

2113
These wizards have the impressive disadvantage that they don't allow an actual modification of the chosen settings. Ease is not a pro here.

General Software Discussion / Re: At last: MP3 Lossless!!!
« on: November 10, 2009, 09:47 AM »
OMG, MP3 lossless. There is WavPack, there is FLAC  :-* and there is Monkey's Audio. MP3 is for instant, mobile playing, not for archiving. (And the MP3 codec is still not license-free.)

I wonder when there will be "Ogg Vorbis HD" ...

2115
Innuendo is right, Dormouse. At least for Windows.

2116
Primarily it depends on your distribution.

Seems like the industry is forcing us to use eMule for that (which basically has it).

Living Room / Re: Recommend some music videos to me!
« on: November 06, 2009, 02:08 PM »
I've found I really like Mogwai's music. Or at least what I've heard of it so far.
Yep, postrock is an acquired kind of music ...

Fine, too: The Stolen Babies.

A pity that development seems to have stalled, it looks quite promising... however, there are several things still missing (like a one-panel view  :P)...

General Software Discussion / Re: Anybody Here Use SeaMonkey (2.0)?
« on: November 02, 2009, 10:19 AM »
Seamonkey does feel a bit archaic but, hey! who doesn't like the retro look sometimes?!
A browser is something I see all the time. I don't want to have a retro look on my still quite modern notebook.  :P
(I don't actually need any look while browsing, but I added a dozen of buttons which are useful in some cases...)

« on: November 02, 2009, 09:48 AM »
Firefox 3.6 beta 1 seems to take less resources (subjectively).. however, Seamonkey was never my choice. I don't like its "look and feel".

including the content of your emails
So emails are "just such a virtual thing" and in no way comparable to actual letters to you?

Google is the one who delivers the best results in search
Google is the one who delivers the most Google-products results and who cares a lot about fake meta tags.

Well, I don't know Brain
;D

Brain 1.0 is metaphorical. It means: Don't load your computer with various shit and wonder why it slows down. No waste, no need to clean it, you see?

Autoruns and CCleaner don't cover the whole range of tasks
What kind of important task is missing there? Memory optimizing?  ;D

A "rollback" feature is a step into the very wrong direction. If you don't have it, you'll consider twice if you should really perform an action. If you have it, you'll think "oh well let me delete anything and I can still recover it"... which is wrong, because it may be hard to recover something when you can't even log in anymore.
