Posted by RedX [send private reply] at December 18, 2001, 11:50:28 AM By asking a specific question after you have read (some of) the 200 threads about this. :-)
See the "complete beginner and need a little help" thread and many others.
Also at the start page you 've got the "Quick start guides".
Posted by DakeDesuDx [send private reply] at December 29, 2001, 10:04:02 PM You cannot go wrong by learning C or C++.
Posted by gian [send private reply] at December 29, 2001, 10:40:19 PM Yes you can, although we have had this discussion many times, it is generally agreed that you do not start using C or C++, it leads to you developing serious personality flaws, just like CodeRed did....
(Wait a minute, but he didn't go straight into C/C++)...
Posted by CodeRed [send private reply] at December 30, 2001, 12:52:02 AM Yes, I learned BASIC on my sisters "VTECH Pre-Computer Powerpad" when I was 8. Then QBASIC in DOS. Then C++ (Skipped C). Then Java. My personality flaws are unrelated
Posted by CodeRed [send private reply] at December 30, 2001, 12:54:07 AM Oh, and a smidgen of HTML in there somewhere also, although I suspect if I tried to write HTML now I'd sit there like a stunned monkey for 10 minutes then decide I'd rather eat a banana.
Posted by Setherd123 [send private reply] at January 01, 2002, 06:25:05 PM CodeRed's HTML abilities are, yes, best described with the word smidgen. He uses graphics for *all* of the text and their formatting.
Haha. Laugh at the IDIOT!
Posted by DakeDesuDx [send private reply] at January 01, 2002, 06:35:45 PM Okay, just curious, but what is this with making fun of CodeRed? What did he do to deserve it? (please elaborate rather than say "being an idiot.")
Any of you, who recognise me from GameDev, will know that I can match anybody with stupidity :).
Posted by Psion [send private reply] at January 01, 2002, 07:06:36 PM He's the one who first posted the URL of a "C++ tutorial" he was working on that was full of outright errors, received some flack on these boards about it, and a month or so later decided to go through and use the now-removed edit functionality to blank out every one of his messages and create a new handle.
Posted by DakeDesuDx [send private reply] at January 01, 2002, 07:54:43 PM Did it atleast have semicolons somewhere in it? Was it using Post-ANSI standard C?
If yes, I can say there are books that actually make it past publishers and are used in libraries regularly that are worse than that...
If no, then he can pass the buck to those said books..
As for blanking out his posts I have to say that that is stupid, even when I went from dakedesu to Micro Moon on Game Developer, I allowed other people, including myself (oh wait... did I say other?) to gaze upon my stupid, lest they destroy themselves the same way. I call looking at my own stupidity as a learning experience, to learn that yes, I too was a Lamer....
In fact on another message board my siggie is "Please put up with my crap, a year ago I was a lamer," and I am sure it will good for another year.
Posted by gian [send private reply] at January 01, 2002, 09:54:21 PM As he used to be known "Chollman82", he was an outright dick to everyone, especially newbies (of which he was basically one when he first came here). he has no tact, and was basically offensive to everyone within the first few days here...
And then I proved him wrong at one point, which made him spite me, and then this whole flaming thing started between us, but since I was made an admin he keeps away from me more...
Posted by DakeDesuDx [send private reply] at January 01, 2002, 10:06:35 PM Am I offensive to everybody here? I honest could not tell you, I am hoping I am just seen as comedic relief (As I am on a couple other boards)...
humm... I know people prolly see me as a flooder, but that is only cause I am whoring the Mozilla sidebar :D...
I am a flooder and a flooder is me, is all I can say in my hopeless defense...
Posted by gian [send private reply] at January 01, 2002, 10:08:08 PM No, you are certainly not Hollman offensive, he was like "fuck dam shit newbie don't know shit, dumbass, are you slow or something? I'm better than you" kinda thing.
Posted by CodeRed [send private reply] at January 01, 2002, 10:24:55 PM ...and using goto is NOT an error...
Posted by DakeDesuDx [send private reply] at January 01, 2002, 10:26:23 PM What... you mean... (/me blinks)... there are people who do that and claim to be 1337?... I am having trouble grasping this concept... since when are obcenities considered a sign of intellect? >_<! >_<!
Any chat room I have been in, you argue for wit alone, use the oppenents argument against them, come up with a valid point and defend it. I guess I am just too stupid to understand this :}
Posted by CodeRed [send private reply] at January 01, 2002, 10:30:37 PM Nice exageration(sp?) gian. I don't believe I have ever sweared here, and if so not at anyone.
Posted by gian [send private reply] at January 01, 2002, 10:37:21 PM Hahahahahahahahahaha!
You're always good for a laugh, Hollman.
