Sometimes the best bugs are the ones you unintentionally put in yourself.

Consider the following problem. You have a buffer of arbitrary binary data that is interpreted as various data pieces. In this particular scenario you are putting various sized integers in this buffer. The buffer is defined to be network byte order.

Let's say you...

This isn't a tutorial, just a lump of code that I wanted to make available that demonstrates retrieving INCREMENT values for newly inserted SQL Server (Express) records, and displaying them on a WinForm. (There are some links in the code to articles on this subject.)

Really Simple PHP Login / Logout Script Example

Icon 11 Comments
One of the first scripts people new to PHP (or any server-side scripting really) create is a login and logout form for their site. Often times beginners get a little confused as to all the parts necessary to creating such a thing. So I thought it would be helpful if I showed a really basic and easy to use PHP login / logout script. The script uses...

Hello World!

Hi everybody,
This is my first blog entry. Basically I'm just testing out how all of this stuff works. I just joined dream-in-code yesterday and already it seems awesome. It's easy to navigate the site, unlike some of the other programming communities I've tried out. So I'm giving this a shot.
I think I'll write here just a...

Priorities and goals are always good things to focus upon when working on any game. The scope of any project, no matter how simply it can be explained, will have so many elements that must be built it can be overwhelming.

That is why I shall make a list of things that I will attempt to work on and attempt to move on from goal to goal. Each of...

Total Eclipse

Today there was a near-total eclipse. Glasgow was overcast and the only evidence was a slight darkness. Just as we thought we were going to miss it the maximum-eclipse (or thereabouts) struggled through, pale and moon-like through a veil of cloud. Then a few minutes later we caught a brighter glimpse.

But this article is about Eclipse the Java...

Client XML Processing Engine

So for the past month or so I've been working on a Framework that is database driven and can take in any XML file and based on the client, choose a dynamic object mapper, and based on the keys in each item in the XML file choose a Parser, then it uses the parser to export information from the file to a CSV. It's not completely finished,...

Path to a clean code LOG 1: Importance of math and logic

So funny story happened this night. I was simply making the first module
from a Coursera course in python. The end of the first module required you,
the programmer, to make a solution for a version of Rock Paper Scissors
from Big Bang Theory (it included Spock and Lizard). Basically instead of
one beats one it was 2 best and losses for 1.

Why I chose AS3 to create my game

Why AS3?

Well I believe for the purposes of what I want is a easy to play online version at online gaming portals and the ability to create a desktop application that can be sold as well. So in theory if it works well the online version would essentially become a demo and the desktop version will be the full version. The online portal version...

Infinite streams and Exact real arithmetic

I've been gone for a while but have been learning lots. School has taken up too much time for me to do my own programming; I'm too busy doing school work and work for my job. I don't even feel like programming when I get done with the day. I have turned to reading about things in theoretical computer science instead. Most of all I have...
