Politics / Re: US Credit Rating
January 19, 2012, 02:45 AM
My problem with Ron Paul is, yeah, sure, some of the things he says makes sense, but a lot of what he says doesn't. he's been harping on about hyper inflation for years now, and there are still no signs of that happening (in fact, in economies with a competent central bank, it should be nearly impossible..). I can find a lot of common ground with him on foreign policy, but at a closer look, the reasoning he uses to arrives at the conclusions he does are much different than mine. Its all driven by a very simplistic view of the Constitution and the role of Government. That's what I can't stomach, his positions on a lot of things are way too extreme.

However, as a person, he comes across as very sincere and consistent which is a breath of fresh air. I can appreciate his honesty, I just fundamentally disagree with a lot of his viewpoints.

My favorite candidate of the Republican field was really Jon Huntsman, it's a shame he conceded, because he was a very bright guy and he was great at policy. I was impressed. Go figure, the primary process kills off the only candidate with even a remote chance of beating Obama (people are dreaming if they think Romney will beat Obama in the general, much less Newt. Paul is a bridge too far for a lot of Republicans, and Santorum isn't competent enough to run a general campaign.)

we're supposed to trust the people who gave terrible mortgage securities AAA ratings with rating the US Government? ...ok. these agencies are a complete joke.

Sure looks easier then some of the crap ive tried so far.  I am tinkering with using a table layout panel, it works great but i think im breaking the scroll feature lol

Table layout panel? Are you speaking about WPF or WinForms?
The XAML for a very simplistic WPF version would look like:

<Span Foreground="Red">Hello</Span>
<Span Foreground="Blue" FontWeight="Medium">Hi</Span>

Due to WPF's rich content model, create these sort of composite controls is really easy.
Yes, it's pretty easy if you're using WPF. If you're using WinForms, then I don't know.
Just find a sha1 implementation and break it.
That's cool, and a lot of that precedes me as a programmer, but my question still remains did it become a standard practice? Something can exist without it being something used on a widespread basis.

Cool nonetheless.
I believe only fairly recently has componetized programming become something of standard practice.
I think a good question to ask yourself would be, back then, did you yourself think of programming in that manner?

I've only really seen composite applications take root fairly recently, certainly today the comparison is valid, but I'm not so sure about back then.

Well I'll tell you what, I have a serious amount of stars ready to give and I know a way to get you in the clan! Unfortunately, I have to get money to unlock this, so once you send me the money I will unlock these stars and secrets to you! I'll also need a plane ticket to Nigeria...

Yeah, I don't really know why they'd use a Macro vs an Inline Function.

I think he was pointing out how you call FrostWraith wrong for claiming the char array is allocated on the stack, then you go to claim that the char array is allocated on the stack (Which is the basis for your criticism of him using the "delete" keyword).
Web Development / Re: Silverlight or ASPX ?
April 08, 2009, 09:43 PM
Moonlight's Silverlight 2.0 support is sketchy, and Silverlight 1.0 is nothing more than a glorified media streaming API set.

Silverlight is for Rich Internet Applications, while ASP.NET is for the more traditional style website.
Battle.net Bot Development / Re: Bad ping

I'm not sure if it's the way I am handling BNCS but it seems when I local hash, it logs in with a bad ping. I usually get 31ms on client and when I use my bot, I am usually pinging around 150-300ms. Not that it effects me in anyway, but I would like to see if there is a way to fix this.

I've noticed the longer it takes to build 0x51, the higher your ping will be. So maybe it's my computer? I'm running a 3.2ghz P4 hyper threaded.. so idk what could be causing the problem. I've used local hashing on bots like stealth and haven't ever had this issue.

Hdx is right, it most likely has to do with Asyncronous vs Syncronous responses to packets.
Well, my original point (Due to what I was led to believe by another article) might have been a little over the top, so Myndy is correct in that there's much less of a rift than I thought.

As for brew, I really do not pay him any mind, he strikes me as pedantic, though I'm not even sure that applies because it requires him to actually be intelligent. Ah well.

I don't understand why Warrior fails to see that they - as two separate languages - have different goals and audiences. Even the Express websites highlight this fundamental difference in the product descriptions.
Visual Basic '08: "Productivity that is ideal for first time or casual Windows programming."
C# '08: "A great combination of power and productivity for the Windows developer."
It should be obvious that by being developed by two different camps, each will inject their own philosophy, with different ideas of how their language should be, what features work for them, what would benefit the target audience the most, etc. Not necessarily the most powerful to develop with.
Of course it's obvious microsoft may tend to lean on the C# side (you seriously can't forget the aura Visual Basic left behind, plus C# has a load of java nuts and people who were disappointed with C++ .NET) so I agree with Warrior. Not to the extent he does, though.
C'mon, no politics threads on x86, so you bring your ranting and raving over here? Try making a productive post once in a while. I don't really see anything going on here except your e-peenor extending.

tl;dr I reach the same conclusion Warrior reached, only I inject large amounts of stupid inbetween.

edit: ew you browse x86, yuck, ban it.
