Hey, thanks for the reply!

I've been a C/C++ programmer since waaaay back, so that's what I know best, but right now I'm lovin' C#.

I love the name of this site, by the way. The thing is... I actually HAVE dreamt in code!

Tim,

Welcome to Dream.In.Code. I think any of us that are serious about writing code have had a dream in code at least once. Especially those of us lucky enough to be employed and working on those "fun" projects that we just can't leave at the office.

Love the "Orc" as your favorite animal.

I need to make it up to the Seattle area. I hear if you can stand the rain it's a nice place :)

Anyway. Thanks for joining, I look forward to seeing you around the forums here. It's people like yourself that have made DIC such a great community.

Have a good one :)

Hi Simonides! Welcome. I've dreamt in code, too. :)

Isn't C# cool? And of course C++!!! You like the name of the site, and isn't the term 'DIC Head' funny! The creators of this site have a wonderful sense of humor, don't they? You gotta love it! :)

I like the way you think. C# - and PHP - are my favourite languages.

Welcome and that was a very detailed description. Sounds like you know what your doing. And you should really tell us about that you dream you had. I wish I can dream in code :angry:
