Re: What are you listening to?

An indie album from Florida. Stork, "Little Kingdoms" http://storktheband.com/?page_id=9 I worked with them on a song or two, and will start up again this next year as the drummer and Audio Engineer. The album doesn't sound really professional, but if you knew the equipment we were working...

Bright Eyes, indie rock band. I fell in love with Conor's voice and the emotions that I can fell in ever song.

Well, I wrote up the code and sent it off to my mentor. He says that although it works, and that malloc is an OK way to do it, it's not a great way to do it.

Alright guys, round two! First, thanks again for all the help on the int to ASCII problem. I'm now having an issue returning a string (that string actually) from a function.

This guy has been coding forever, If he's been programming forever, he may have learned C before the days of optimizing compilers. If you're using a compiler from the late 70s/early 80s, there's a decent chance that i++ is faster than i+=1. If your compiler was written in the mid-80s or later, it's...
