The typical day of a computer programmer?
Posted by ronybc [send private reply] at November 16, 2001, 06:47:43 AM Its a wonderful idea... congrates CodeRed.
Posted by BEDGE [send private reply] at November 16, 2001, 03:15:48 PM its not glamorous. Well if your in the applications and database side of the wood. I think the same applys to games programers. But the good money makes the headache worth it.
Ive heard Celebs, famous sportsmen and people in nearly all industrys say the same about their jobs so i haven't lost much
Posted by CodeRed [send private reply] at November 17, 2001, 07:18:09 PM Rony, If this is how you get your aggression out then fine. I'd rather have you make sarcastic remarks on a message board than go into your high school with guns blazing (you're obviously 13-17).
Posted by ronybc [send private reply] at November 17, 2001, 11:10:14 PM hahahaaa... you are wrong code. And i don't want any guns for you... a Fine kick on your funny ass.. is just enough. avante ammayiammeda sarcasm. hehhh... you sad idiot.
Posted by gian [send private reply] at November 18, 2001, 02:31:33 AM Well, you get up, go to school, get annoyed at the stupidity of most computer teachers (my one is an exception, currently at least), get home, code until the early hours of the morning and then idle on #tpu until it's time to go to school.
Sleep may factor in somewhere there.

What else can I abuse him with, the what is it, the CDOD?
Posted by ronybc [send private reply] at November 18, 2001, 09:08:38 AM |o|.. nice judgement... ehhhh... :) ...hell rules.
Judge having abnormal thoughts. i think you are lacking two more nights of sleep than me.
i don't wanna fuck you... get sleep. GOODNIGHT. (from a continent far away from you...! )
But i'm going to bed disappointed.... missed tonight's meteor showers by the trail of comet Tempel-Turtle... someone says that it's a once in a lifetime chance. hmmm.. that monsoon clouds cheated me. End of an another bad day... in the middle of clouded heaven and judging hell. may be b'cos i was bad. right..?
Posted by Psion [send private reply] at November 18, 2001, 10:48:38 AM I think gian is actually right near you.
Posted by ronybc [send private reply] at November 18, 2001, 12:00:09 PM i know both of you are admins. but don't care my existence on tpu.....
i just came here with interest in the idea 'Teen Programmers Unite'. but...

Yeah... thats some language ya got there. So, you speak like that all the time do ya? (Simpsons rule)
Posted by gian [send private reply] at November 18, 2001, 10:47:06 PM Yes.... he seems highly agressive and argumentitive.
Tone it down, that's all we ask.

Posted by gian [send private reply] at November 20, 2001, 12:03:08 AM Yeah. Plus he's too easily falling into our cheap jokes.
Posted by ronybc [send private reply] at November 20, 2001, 10:58:01 AM Psion, gian, sphinX, CodeRed, RedX... glad to hear you all.
task of a c++ decompiler is different than that of a c++ compiler.
b'coz computers are non-native to English just like me. heheheee... ;)
machine code : Thoughts
assembly : Malayalam (my Mother tongue)
C++ : English
assembler: assembly to machine code (too easy)-(masm)
disassembler: machine code to assembly (too easy)-(hiew)
compiler: C++ to machine code (mmm... easy)-(tcc)
decompiler: machine code to C++ (uhh uhhh...)-(?)
Heyy guys... what i'm doing is what computers can't do.... :)
i'm trying my level best to convert 'what i've to say' to the language you and this keyboard know.
(at half the volume) my compiler is also weak. upgraded to the new version with words 'sarcasm' and..... 'cynicism' from here. i know those things..(and i have) 'thalakkanam'. but the English.
Posted by gian [send private reply] at November 20, 2001, 02:12:54 PM Computers emulate behaviour. THey do not possess language. Even if you call what they have "language", binary is the computer's mother tongue.
Posted by CodeRed [send private reply] at November 20, 2001, 04:50:02 PM "Hollman wouldn't be good enough at sounding like a non-native English speaker"
But I am good at sounding like a completely different person :)
Posted by gian [send private reply] at November 20, 2001, 06:51:29 PM Welcome back....
* gian tries to see the humor in all of this, but can't.
Posted by ronybc [send private reply] at November 20, 2001, 08:11:10 PM you can't... even if you have the common sense.
computers emulate behaviour...? i don't think so. may be your disassember is not working right. or a 'compiler error' here...?
Posted by gian [send private reply] at November 21, 2001, 12:14:39 AM You have no concept of computer/compiler interaction, do you?
Computers simply perform the actions we tell them to, they do not possess language. Language suggests thought, and computers don't possess that either.
Anyway, if I had I "compiler error" (I think that's your idea of a joke...), you wouldn't have seen my message.
And a disassembler, wtf? Do you mean a decoder?
This all convinces me that you have little or no idea of computer/user operation either, or maybe just about computers in general.
Either that or you have the IQ of a small gnat.
Harsh, but you do not seem to respond to reason or logic.
Posted by ronybc [send private reply] at November 21, 2001, 06:46:43 AM ayyayyo.... gian.. i was not talking about 'what is language(human)' or defining the limitations of a computer. you says that you know the concept of computer/compiler interaction.. ok... then try to understand the difference between compiling and decompiling. And don't take it so seriously. C++ decompiling is an almost impossible task.
since you don't know what a disassembler is... you never gonna understand what i really mean by that damn joke.
*Is there 'clay inside'...?
Posted by BEDGE [send private reply] at November 21, 2001, 12:45:26 PM I thought the topic is a typical day in the life of a programmer. Not who can win a argument
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at December 02, 2001, 08:49:35 PM My day: (although I am still in high school)
6am - wake up and wonder why I have to go to school so early
9:00am - go to 2nd period (MST Research). Watch anime and drink jolt cola. Fun! But then...
10:30am - EVIL CLASS OF EVIL AND MORE EVIL. Oh yes, 3rd period. Really, ruins the fun I had in 2nd period.
2:15pm - arrive back at home
2:17pm - having relieved myself, sit in front of box
2:30pm - awake from 10 minutes of staring at box. Decide to waste time on IRC
4:30pm - realize that I have just wasted 2 hours on IRC and there is much homework to be done
5:30pm - decided (after 1 hour of staring at screen again) to do homework day before it is due
5:31pm - work a bit on my MST Research Project (comparing Scheme and C as teaching languages, i even have both semester for this)
7:00pm - food.
7:15pm - back to box. Will I play some games (my selection is limites since I only run GNU/Linux)?
7:18pm - hmm, game is already boring.
7:30pm - realize i was staring at monitor again
8:00pm - not again! argh.
8:10pm - add stuff i did today to my site and make a diff (to upload the next day)
10pm - the warm comfort of my bed, except i don't like going to sleep this early
So, before 10pm I have usually done something useful like make WindowMaker look better. I was inspired to write a parsing language the other day, I already have it coded (a keyword that takes string arguments, nothing big). Next I will add error handling code to it (after I autoconfiscate it later anyway). I also have the Doom Legacy launcher to finish (now that I will have Qt 3 tommorow), so much code will be written instead of time wasted on IRC. Occasionally I decided to get interviewed by places like Slashdot (search for Clinton Ebadi...) or get free stuff from the people who work at slashdot for freshmeat (a bunch of the fm guys live right near here in baltimore). Ah, my life rocks (and sucks too).
Posted by Psion [send private reply] at December 03, 2001, 06:51:00 PM So, if you're buddy-buddy with Slashdot, can you get TPU mentioned, with a link, in some appropriate manner? :-)
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at December 03, 2001, 07:19:38 PM that was almost a year ago though, and I talk to much in #umbclinux so roblimo doesn't like me anymore (he has stopped coming to the channel or to LUG meetings, all because of me). Although I did get an offer to go and deathmatch with everyone at geeksimplex when they were having a giant deathmatch. But, my box is too slow and my aunt said no (hmm, go to play quake with people you have never met in person?). I wish I knew the higher-ups like cmdrTaco, but hey, having met timothy and roblimo (head of OSDN and all). The processor i am using is timothy's old one, and I am getting an ATX case to use the motherboard he gave me (nice 500Mhz k6-2...I have no money, so that is blazing for me). I can't think of a way that tpu could get on slashdot (or even newsforge) because you predate slashdot and all...you need to do something newsworthy :)
Posted by buzgub [send private reply] at December 03, 2001, 09:14:12 PM "Shock!!! Highly reputable website for teenage programmers unavailable for more than 48 hours!!!" is newsworthy, isn't it? :D
Posted by gian [send private reply] at December 05, 2001, 12:10:22 AM Rony, you say I don't know what a disassembler is, but that's what I'm trying to tell you... Disassemblers do not do what you are suggesting, and the whole human/computer language analogy just sucks.
Posted by ronybc [send private reply] at December 05, 2001, 11:18:33 AM didn't bath... didn't brush today...
