Someone benefited from DIC for their master's thesis. It's great to see people getting help and that DIC impacted someone's thesis.

May I suggest that this topic be moved to a public facing forum? This is indeed impressive news and speaks well to the content to be found on DIC.

The pertinent part of the thesis for those who don't have time to find it themselves:

Quote

Throughout the course of the project, I utilized several additional resources in order to
clarify syntax and learn various subroutines and functions within Visual Basic 2010. Firstly there
was the main Microsoft Visual Studio help library [9]. This is a library setup by Microsoft to
assist programmers using its Visual Studio software in finding the correct syntax, as well as
defining the purposes of different functions or subroutines.

A second website, dreamincode.net, had additional, well-developed solutions to various
problems [10]. It allowed me to find answers and solve problems which involved several steps.
They usually described multiple ways to solve a specific problem. With multiple options I would
sometimes combine approaches in order to solve a problem as I would best see fit for PROMAL.

Without these two websites, it would have been extremely difficult for me to come close to
completing this project.

BTW Mac, great find and how did you happen to come across this?

Good idea! I'll move this to the lounge.

I found this thread while Googling for some resources on a carry look ahead adder. I had to write an inductive proof on the parallel prefix operator for this adder, and I wasn't understanding the behavior of the prefix.
