  1. dead as a dodo. may have some uses for legacy systems and old data, but otherwise... btw, id advise anybody with old pictures and documents on an old floppy to get the files off before the thing succumbs to some magnetic field
  2. imvho, its a crappy idea, and popups are one of the many forms of satan
  3. id say the same
  4. ok, firstly, i'll admit im nowhere near an expert/professional programmer, but here are my 2c basic is an easy language to start with. its powerful up to a point in the right hands (windows defender was written in vb until microsoft converted it to c++). however, for moving to another language it can be pig awful. its syntax and the way it works sometimes is nothing like c++ or some other languages i havent had experience with java, but on what courses i've done in college and people i know have been on, the courses either use vb or java (ive had the luck to always be on a vb one, which i already know ). i know that the syntax of java is more like c++, so this might possibly be a good option to move on. it also is more cross-platform c++ is where the real power lies, and if you can learn it without learning other languages good for you personally, i learnt QBASIC at the age of 10, moved onto VB by the time i was 13 and now dabble in whatever i feel like. i am 20 now. i have tried to break into c++ a few times, but im too stuck in basic. i can get my head around php no problem, but c++ confuses me (i try something, it throws up an error, and i dont know whats causing it, try various things, no luck, give up). ive got the feeling that it might've been easier if i started in java, but... in the end, i see it 2 ways. either go with vb and learn it easier yet have more trouble moving on, or go with java, have it a bit harder to learn, but when you want to move on it will be easier
  5. these have been given before, so you can find them by searching
  6. not afaik
  7. i've had the same problem. worked fine under beta 2, wont work properly with final
  8. am using virtual pc 2007 and i havent found any problems with it so far
  9. might be easier to determine what the problem is if you could tell us what the error says
  10. tried to run it and got this hmmmm, just found out what it means by the power of google, i thought i had .Net installed got it installed. havent got time to take a properly check it all out but it looks good only thing i can suggest is having an option of saving the tweaks or integrating them, as well as having machine and per user options
  11. That is even moar inefficient (string splitting and concatenation involves a huge amount of overhead in most HLLs).Remember that stringreplace has to make a complete pass over the input string for *every* character you want to replace. Why not uppercase them all at once in one pass? i aint a professional coder, i program in vb mainly and the size of the programs i make efficiency isnt really important
  12. you could split the string using space as a delimiter, capitalise the first letter and then concatenate them back together again
  13. yes. you can just use a dvd
  14. tnx. will see if i can delete that bloody wlm sharing folders thingy
  15. its impossible to hide you're ip address. it needs to be reported to the server correctly so it can send the data back to you. even if you use a proxy server, the proxy server will still have you're ip address
