C++ 2011 and the Return of Native Code

danieltdp Re:Yikes (616 comments)

The difference is that the massive collection of classes in java are built in the language itself. You don't happen to bump on a Java deployment without them. When you plan a large scale deployment on an heterogeneous base, these kind of stuff matters a lot.

Anyway. It seems that some people took a nice opportunity to talk about differences and threw it away, feeling personally attacked by my point of view. I even got my (first) enemy. Hows is that? As this is not my intention, I will stop replying to this thread.

As a proof that it is not my intention to troll. I kept replying under my id to the end, which is not the case for some other people. The way this thread when is why I spent much less time on Slashdot and its comment session.

So I want me to ignore read all of it and ignore the second half (about boost)?

You ARE using delete. But it was coded by someone else who did not coded the language itself

danieltdp Re:Yikes (616 comments)

Then you are doing boost, not C++. It's like saying you can live in your car because you atatched a trailler on its back. You are living in the trailler. Not in the car

C++ 2011 and the Return of Native Code

danieltdp Re:Yikes (616 comments)

The fact you only have 9 or so deletes doesn't say much about the quality of your code. One could argue that the less deletes you have, more are the chances you have that there is a memory leak...

I believe you have been dealing with class diagrams that are quite to the simpler side of things.

GNOME and KDE Devs Wrangle Over 'System Settings' Name

danieltdp Re:Two menu items with the same name (289 comments)

Please, those who can, mod parent way up to stop flaming and trolling. The summary, as usual, is not clear about what was going on. There was a real issue with the duplicate name and it was not just a pet peeve.

Most importantly: it is already solved

Oracle To Give OpenOffice.org To Apache Incubator

danieltdp Re:Choices are good, but... (129 comments)

And oracle would still have intellectual property over the trademark. Later, this could me used as a hammer to impose directions to the project.

I would prefer if the brain power got behind one project too, but because OpenOffice just died! ;-)

Doom Ported To the Web

danieltdp Re:This proves the old adage (248 comments)

I have to disagree. There is a proof of concept behind this that should be done and kudos for the guy to do it on the most classic FPS on history. Wolfenstein was not good enough and duke nukem, quake, heretic, ROT all climbed over the giant's shoulder

Doom Ported To the Web

danieltdp Re:Ughhhhhh (248 comments)

Its not ughhhh. Its old... :-) You should look what lies behind the bad graphics: playability, balance, level design, enemy design, etc. IMO, this game has some of the best level designs in game history.

Doom Ported To the Web

danieltdp Re:Not bad (248 comments)

The original had separate keys for strafe, besides the modifier. Its another game when you combina strafe and rotate. You can dodge fireballs without loosing your aim

Doom Ported To the Web

danieltdp Re:Not bad (248 comments)

You really need to combine strafe and rotate do be effective at this game. Strafe Left and Right as separate keys from rotate left and rotate right are a must! (or should it be "is a must"?! -- dunno)

Linux successfully ported to iPhone

danieltdp danieltdp writes  |  more than 5 years ago

danieltdp (1287734) writes "An iPhone hacker has successfully ported the Linux kernel to Apple's iPhone. Although the port is still at a very early stage of development and currently lacks critical features such as touchscreen support, sound, WiFi support, and accelerometer drivers, it includes a custom bootloader that enables users to choose whether to boot Linux or the iPhone's own operating system at startup. Instructions that describe how to install it from an Ubuntu Box are available on this readme file. It's only a matter of time until we see Android running on those babies."

Rings found at saturn's moon

danieltdp danieltdp writes  |  more than 6 years ago

danieltdp (1287734) writes "Rings are not just for planets anymore — astronomers have found them around Saturn's moon Rhea, the first ever observed around a moon. The origin of the disc and rings remains unclear. They might be leftovers from Rhea's formation, or from an impact later in its history. Until now, only planets were known to have rings, but now Rhea seems to have some family ties to its ringed parent Saturn."
