I reproduced the scenario copying and pasting your source code. When I run c:\test.exe it throws an exception:

C:\WINNT\system32\cmd.exe - c:\test.exe
The NTVDM-CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS: 0728 IP:010c OP:0f 00 00 00 00 Click Close to exit the application

I doesn't matter which option I use to compile it.

If I change the code to:

#include <iostream.h>

int main()
cout << "Simple LCC C++ Program\n";
return 0;

then the program executes but freezes the command prompt...

Finally if I use -ansic or -pedantic switch I get a lot of warnings about obsolete code conventions. I'm not a C++ programmer, so that may be an issue here, but I can't tell you why  :o

I guess I spent a lot of time programming :P

Other than that I play logic puzzles (my favourite is, searching for good new freeware utilities and just browsing random sites by using StumbleUpon for Firefox.

I don't spend time downloading music, chatting or MSN'ing, other than a little bit of IRC on #DonationCoder of course ;)

Makes me wonder who voted 81-120  :huh:

I'm totally blown away by this!  :Thmbsup: I'm impressed with the clever control of Branston and the amount of interactivity available! I haven't finished it yet, but I will for sure! Congratulations on a well-deserved first place.

Ruffnekk, where did you get the drive at that price? In Europe, I mean... newegg has it cheaper, of course.

I bought it at a local Internet shop in the Netherlands ( They sell it for € 175.00 excl. VAT, which is 19% in Holland, so that comes to € 208.25 in total.

Does it possibly have a setting that will let you define a threshold where the LED blinks red or something?  Probably not, but I thought I'd ask?

Not that I know of. I think the LED is only blue. It has two concentric circles, the outer circle indicates the power on/off and the inner circle shows the status of the used space.

I wonder if the drive-full status works if you format it for NTFS... when you buy an external usb enclosure that comes with a disk, it's usually FAT32 formatted.

I use the drive with FireWire 800 which is much faster than USB and yes, it is formatted NTFS and the indicator still works ;)

BTW, I saw that Freeware World Team has all or most of the NANY apps in their directory :)

It's so funny how different people look from what you imagined.

I guess we're all waiting for mouser's post now :P Or did I miss that one already?

I recently bought a 500GB Western Digital which is very quiet and fast. It wasn't so expensive either (~€ 200). What's cool is the LED button which shows how full the drive is :)

Well I have also taken a look inside his world and I must say it's all very logic and clear to me. I can understand why gri has invented such a system and I can clearly see the advantages of using it. On the other hand, gri should realize that people will not easily adapt to a system that uses a naming convention from outer space and is almost impossible to apply practically.

On another note I would like to tell gri that even though he fully understands his system and is willing to enforce it no matter what, he would probably achieve much more by explaining in clear language why he thinks his system is superior to the conventional methods used. Gri, if you want to achieve anything here with the nice people on DC I would start by introducing yourself and your philosophies about posting without actually using your methods. If you can convince people that it will work, why it should be used and that is has advantages, then you can make agreements on naming conventions, symbols and related things.

I think a lot of people on DC are interested in development, whether it be programming code or thinking of systems to work more efficiently. Therefore your system may be accepted if you are willing to develop it instead of enforcing it.

I hope you can reply by not using a link only. What do you think?

I think I know the answer to this Farmsteader, but I'm at home now and I have some old code at work that will do the trick if I remember correctly. Do you still want it? I can post it later tomorrow.

Excellent. I still use 1.1.4322 :P

I think I was using Scream Tracker already back in the 80'ies, but it might have been another tracker. I never figured they would still be around ;) Fun thread :up: I hope if anything results from it it will be posted here as well.

My definite favourites from the past are all C64 games:





And of course Yie Are Kung FU:

Well you could link it to the Awards badges page just like the other badges and then provide a link on that page to this thread, explaining people they can get that badge too if they fulfill their tasks as well...

Well I'm working with SAP software at work, but that's tailor made. I did however find quite a comprehensive list of these kind of tools here. A lot of freeware entries and some sound very promising. Might be worthwhile to check it out.

You can create labels to categorize your messages. First go to "Manage Labels" and create some labels, then go to you inbox and label each message accordingly.

We could do that together, or with a group of people!  :greenclp: Working in a team would surely produce something awesome with all knowledge bound together :)

From which language to English are you looking?

I remember I once started on writing a game engine like that and its a lot more work than I would expect. So 50 or even 200 dollars for the engine with source code is very well worth its money if you are serious about developing an online game. Great find!
