Sure do, the first comp I ever used was one that my dad got from work that had windows 3.1 on it. I remember having to set up different boots or some crap for dos games so it was either windows or dos game becuase it was to much for it to do both

I just got Skype working so I can talk to my sister in france. Because I have it, I figured I'd ask you guys if any of you were interested in setting up skype and using it? If we get enough people we could always hold a conference.

Nah! I don't know if I'd be able to handle that! I was supposed to call a friend last night in Va, but I screwed up and fell asleep instead :(

I didn't have much time in the book shop so as i have had experience with the "For Dummies" books, i grabbed C++ For Dummies :)

Author: Stephen Randy Davis

Luckily, the book recomends Dev-C++ and thats what i use =D

Yeah, they do assume you are somebody who has only been using a computer for a day and don't even know how to open up a program :(

Yeah, its really anoying, and also, its likely that it doesnt really teach as much as a "real" book on programming.
My first programming book was "The C Programming Lenguage" excelent book, just excelent.

Wholeheartedly agree.

My first programming book was actually Visual Basic 3.0 for Windows
though I really never read it, I pretty much just followed the examples.

I'm working on a pretty cool project at school now, having alot of troubles though,
I'm making a remote control for windows media player and winamp on a pocket pc.
I've made everything work, it now plays, stops, pauses, sets to fullscreen mode, next previous, fast forward etc. but I have a big problem namely to retrieve the playlist!
I thought it would be pretty straight forward by just using the windows message queue to retrieve elements, text string by text string, but appearantly, they're using the ATL ListView control, which does some freaky stuff.
On the normal listbox control, you can just send LB_GETITEMTEXT to retrieve data so that one's simple, in listview they have a LVM_GETITEMTEXT which theoretically should work similar... but nooo, for some reason, it needs a pointer to a structure, now in plain C++, this would be simple, but problem is; I'm using C# which isn't a problem in most cases, BUT in C#, you can only use pointers to primitives, ie int *, byte* float * etc, but not structures. This would still not be a problem, because I could just point to a byte * an retrieve data "manually" from there since I know what the structure looks like, problem is; the field I want, is a LPSTR within the structure, which makes the whole scheme alot harder, so I started making a managed DLL in C++ to implement in my project, which would be the logical step. But then I encountered a new problem...
The linker complains about a missing entry point, stdcall_ malloc, so I changed it to new; new linker problem, missing entry point stdcall_ new. It seems they have forcibly removed the unmanaged memory allocation functions for some reason. So I thought I should start being clever, so I did this :

thestruct.lpName = "(tons of whitespace)";

to force the string to allocate some memory in stack.

Build->Run
Console output (client)
server : ELLO MOTO!
me : ELLO!
server : FLESH
me : PLAYLIST

Windows Media Player has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

And I was like " : / "

Oops, too long text? sorry to ditch you off topic, I just wanted to share :)

Yeah, C# is wonderfull, until you have to start doing bizarre stuff becuase ms forgot that their apis should work 100% in their programming lenguage. But, well, except for that its worth coding in, specially when you get used to the OOP.
