    Re: Evolution Of A Linux User

    After many years, I can happily say I've hit stage 10. I work with Linux every single day, but it's nothing special. The real world has a way of breaking zealotry and shaping you into a decent,...

    Re: How to test C knowledge

    I respectfully have to correct you. Nowhere did I say reading code is worthless. You have to expand somewhere, but don't overload yourself. You've essentially agreed with me, but I wasn't going to...

    Re: How to test C knowledge

    I would also like to add that you'll learn a lot more about programming from experimenting than you will reading source code. If you don't have first hand experience in working with these tools, it's...

    Re: How to test C knowledge

    Alright, I'll give you a test. If you can do it, I'll assume that you have at least a beginners understanding:

    Write me a program that acts as a change calculator. You will prompt the user with a...
  6. Re: vim or emacs? (i know that this is a recurring issue, but now it is mine).

    I tend to see the opposite, in fact, there's a lot of development around making popular Mac text editors (TextMate, Cappuccino, Coda, etc.) act like vi.

    But, I did want to add that I like to use...
  7. Re: vim or emacs? (i know that this is a recurring issue, but now it is mine).

    It was Super Effective!

    I think the largest difference between Emacs and Vim is the method of navigation and mode traversal. Emacs is all editing all the time, while Vim is focused around...

    Re: What's on your Holiday Menu?

    Fried chicken, fried okra, mashed potatoes, green beans, black eyed peas, mac 'n' cheese, fudge, apple pie, Sam Adams, Jack Daniels, and good 'ole eggnog.

    A very southern Christmas.

    Re: only jQuery or JavaScript+jQuery?

    I don't see anything wrong with learning JQuery "first". In essence, you'll be learning the two in parallel, since JQuery isn't a replacement, nor a superset, of Javascript in the way Obj-J is....

    I'm pretty sure it uses a standard SIM loader, so, no, it isn't locked into the traditional carriers.

    Re: ***plete Bliss

    It was a fun little script I made (link to my site up above) that changes "com" to "***". The mods/staff/admins thought this belonged in Cafe Games more than the Cafe.

    So, it's not really a...

    Re: Did wireless internet exist before 802.11?

    Yeah. Before IEEE, it was usually customary to purchase access points and wireless-peripherals based on the manufacturer. Companies used generally a "close" standard together before the IEEE...

    Re: Ubuntu is not ready for prime time

    I'm sorry, Your Mileage Might Vary. Even then, Windows was not made to run from a flash drive, and as you can see from the umpteen billion users, that design is doing them just fine.

    That's not really anything at all for me.

    Re: Ubuntu is not ready for prime time

    That really sounds a bit far-fetched. I can, though, say I have had issues with Linux (not just Ubuntu) where I've had to Google an application, find it, run it, find it needs to be recompiled for my...

    Re: Linux for iPhone.

    Currently, from what I've gathered, it supports all the features of the 3GS (but not the iPhone 4), but with hacked together drivers. Though, I'd give it another couple of months, and I think it'll...

    Re: Linux for iPhone.

    Well, it works well enough to do phone and smart-phone things. The only thing lacking, thus far, are optimizations. The lack of driver support is killer.
