    long no units

    Hi all, it's been a while since I posted and I've been slacking horribly due to a new job and no access to forums, a lack of machines and time is my excuse. Can I make my PS3 and my ubuntu laptop fold for my username and OcUK ?

    Official Glastonbury Thread: 2007

    we'd got our E-Mails by the timeI got back in from kiteboarding at 4ish. The mythical OcUK meet has been sugested every year but I doubt it'll happen. I think the on line ticket thing works as well as it can do. you just need to have plenty of browsers open and keep trying. The logistics...

    What;s sheffield like

    Sheffield is different in different areas. the west of the City (where the uni and dental depts are) is a lovely well wooded greenish area full of parks and nice bars. The east of the City center is a hell hole where I wouldn't want to live tbh. I'd move back to Sheffield in a second if I...

    RWD - As dangerous as what people make it out to be ?

    your car is fitted with a bonnet full of electronic gizmos to keep the boot behind the bonnet though. In an MR2 you get the engine, the clutch, the gearbox and the wheels. If you want to reduce power going to the wheels you need to throttle back or dip the clutch. My boss has a 535i and I'm...
  11. happytechie UML diagrams

    I've no idea I'm afraid mate. if there isn't a view class diagram option then presumably. I've never used anything other than the professional one :confused: Oddly enough if you are just doing simple class diagrams rather than full fat UML documentation you might find it quicker and...

    RWD - As dangerous as what people make it out to be ?

    you'll be fine. just remember that the speed that you are driving at when you enter the corner is the speed that you will have to take that corner at. As a rule I don't brake or accelerate in the wet if the wheels are not all pointing in the same direction. I'd get youself out to a nice...

    Unique-string check in C

    did you fix the code or just dump the code I gave you in to your program. Stop and think about what you are doing, write a design, then write the code. Thank about what functions need access to what data and only pass the data you need into them. hint, the function that asks the user...

    Unique-string check in C

    that's horrid... did you know that a character array is actually just a pointer to the first location in the array? anyway.... the whole for loop with the pointer and the array looks wrong to me, I'm surprised that it even worked once what about: for(int foo = 0 ; foo <...
