There are only 3 rules I like to keep in mind.
1) When in doubt, reboot, try again.
2) When further in doubt, format, try again.
3) When not in doubt, don't touch anything.

Just a quick comment about how to avoid a buffer overrun while programming in C. Instead of using the string copy command, try to use the string n command.

wouldn't that have an issue with the word size? I.E.(as my post got answered before), a 64 bit word has a 1 bit sign, an 11 digit exponent, and a 35 bit mantissa.

My thoughts: If you know the person, acknowledge them, if you don't, it's not required.
A few places are pretty common to greet other strangers, for example, in the gym. All the men seem to...

I must apologize, but here is my view on crime:
Any felony = death (or solitairy confinement with nothing but rice/gruel).
Why? Because some people don't mind breaking laws and going to jail. ...

Well, the way I started was just by hanging out in IRC for 36 hours a day. Not exactly a boost to my social skills, but chance may have you encounter someone who can in a word "apprentice" you.

I am a Thrust-ship.
I am small and tricky - where you think I am, I probably am not. I can work very fast, but I tend to go about things in a round about way, which often leaves me effectively...

I'm a CS major... I suck at math. Out of curiosity to those more experienced and in the field. Are mathematics required for the work area.. Or is that just bullshit. I'm probably just looking for...

My preference of Linux has always been Slackware... ever since good ol' kernel 1.2.13. I never had a reason for starting with slackware, well I liked the name. Here is my thoughts on why I would...

well, everyone posted good advice, but here's mine: take it for what it's worth.
If you want to setup a shell server, this is the method I would go.
1) Install OpenBSD
2) enable telnetd

shell server? just enable the telnet daemon, you should be set. And if you're taking a class teaching nix basics.. why do you need a shell account, if you have linux, just go to the console screen.

Can anyone explain to me how a floating point number is handled on a 64 bit architecture?
in this form:
a b c

Unless you have business secrets, government coverups, order online a lot, or have all sorts of crazy pornography that is really embarrassing, you shouldn't worry so much about hackers, since you're...

Pascal, C, C++, C++, Cobol, C, C++, Cobol, Asm.
In that order.
Cobol comes from my minor.

Out of curiosity, does anyone here actually find enjoyment in the "art of programming." Maybe it's because it's required work for my CS 3 class, but I find it agonizing.

C++ Tutorial on pointers, maybe some linked lists.

Con: A virii is not senscient nor is it truly aware of it's own existance. It has a lack of senses.
Pro: We are not a computer virii, so perhaps we lack the lack the physical sense to...

I'll take your word for it.. strongly suggest some sort of popup killer... even if they're starting to get around them too.

I'm curious as to the advantages of any, of choosing one over the other. I'm gettin my friend's old 486(in exchange for a case of beer), so I had planned on installing OpenBSD, and using that as a...

I've never really been a huge fan of Celeron. Granted, this is better than a AMD vs. Intel thread, it's still basically opinions. I'd go with the P3, since I have one, and haven't had any problems...

might consider grokster.. same exact thing. Imesh or WinMX. You can also be a dick and set your firewall to block people from downloading from you. Your call.

Learn Fortran and Cobol first.. kidding. Actually, the route a lot of schools take is:
Assuming you're working in a Unix Environment, take C over C++....
