  1. I suppose SSD is a big factor for the battery life. Finally a laptop that can last at least one flight. However the one thing I distinctly remember about Sony laptops is that they are ridiculously overpriced.
  2. Spiderman 3: The Drama. Dammit, how long was it when I last watched a popcorn movie. It was good in all its badness. ... And I was drunk.
  3. I guess that depends on how much you need to avoid using the swap. I have 2Gb, and swap space is never used whatever memory hog I use in my system. So for me the bottleneck is memory speed now. I can't imagine you needing more than 2Gb of memory on a desktop computer. On the other hand, I haven't played any games lately, so someone correct me if I'm wrong.
  4. Ditto. And I became a software engineer.
  5. I think he means because of deformation caused by the bullet (which I doubt too), not the momentum of the bullet. PS And I doubt it would detonate. So far I haven't heard of a single case where a tank was disabled by a shot in the barrel.
  6. I did not like the music. It is not Fallout style and I'm quite worried now. I could not care less about rules system or hairy deathclaws, but the original Fallout atmosphere is a must. And it seems to be in the process of being ruined.
  7. Yes, that was the one I was referring to. And this one too.
  8. Only that the article leaves out the last piece of comment (from Kotaku):
  9. What concepts are you having trouble with exactly?
  10. STL is excellent, when you use it. But if you look in the internal headers, you can see how hairy they are. I mean, they are still pretty wonderful, just ugly (since we are talking about ugliness here).
  11. I recommend that you to take a look in STL headers (in include/c++/<version>/bits/).
  12. I think templated C++ wins the award here. NO U! /Perl fanboy
  13. A lot of beginners have trouble with the concept of object-oriented programming, that's why our first year university programming course is going to switch from Java to Python (I personally have been marking a lot of really terrible Java code). Java is a good object-oriented application programming language, but procedural thinking should be set straight first. And Perl is very good to hack together useful and usable things quickly, just what a newbie wants. I'm not advocating Perl as "the one and the only", but given a choice between the two, I'd go for Perl first.
  14. As much as I want it to be true, the project is still very very very young and is far from being production ready. WINE was around since 1993 and it still cannot achieve complete compatibility. On the other hand, Vista-XP compatibility layer should be easier than Windows-*nix.
  15. Perl is definitely easier. You can find plenty of tutorials around the net, as well as Perl Cookbook which is helpful for standard tasks. You can also try writing CGI scripts in Perl for some variety.
  16. Do not be fooled be the similarity of syntactic elements. C++ has a lot of details that you do not usually care about in a scripting language. And what do you want?
  17. You mean a good stress test for Bethesda forums, right? Or Invision PowerBoard.
  18. They even have a "What is an RPG?"-type topic now. Should have happened sooner or later.
  19. The speed at which posts and topics appear and die there is truly ridiculous!
