    We dont don't all live in the US.

    Correct. 8 billion people on Earth, 390 million in the USA. Clearly we don't all live in the USA. But this site does, as does an overwhelming majority of its active membership. So I don't feel its unreasonable to expect the content and comments of its members to come with an American slant. If I were on a Hindi site I would expect a Hindi slant and have to accept that I am viewing it from the outside and that not every comment applies to my part of the world.

    DontDon't generalise{...}

    Generally I try not to. {laugh} But to some degree its not possible to talk in public to large numbers of people, about broad subjects that affect large numbers of people without doing so. Most people get that there are exceptions to every rule. I could talk about marriage without explicitly saying "two people" and it would be a generalization then someone would pipe up and say I'm bad for not taking into consideration all the multi-partner marriages in Saudi Arabia or Utah. So unless someone spends 80% of their comments trying to cover EVERY combination and permutation as well as trying to appease every faction, subgroup and exception the majority of casual conversations tend to presume some generalization.

    you can't say that all uni's/colleges are inherently evil.

    When you get some time, please re-read my post. I never said colleges were evil. I corrected the OP's misconception that they were in the business of making people job ready. If I said that Coca-Cola was not in the business of making electric fans that is not the same as saying they are bad, it would just be correcting a misunderstanding about what they do.
  2. In Topic: How to get rid of the new line in buffer

    Posted 29 Oct 2014

    Check the while statement and think about the values of your variables through each iteration.

    Iteration 1 = I = 0
    Iteration 2 - I = 1
    Iteration 3 - I = 2
    Iteration 4 - I = 3
    Iteration 5 - I = 4

    Therefore 'I' will always be less than the array.length, until iteration 6 where I = 5

    Its common for people to forget this kind of thinking when new to zero-indexed problems. But you can see it if you put a breakpoint on the first line after the while statement and look at all your local values. We have some tutorials on debugging that will help you a lot and probably introduce you to some new tool in Visual Studio that you didn't know about.

    UPDATE: you also have two readline statements. One at line 23 and one at line 38. That's never good to duplicate the functionality like that because it will always come back to bite you. Re-think your design so you don't have two different places where you are taking input from the user for the same need.

    Its a pretty simple fix, but as this is clearly school homework we can't give you the answer.

    Well if the school tasks don't help you with real-world tasks then what kinds of tasks will? I mean there's got to be a way for people looking to become developers to practice certain skill-level tasks to have enough experience to start out as an entry-level developer at least.


    I'm sure you've heard me rant on this before but I don't mind doing it again.

    Colleges aren't in the business of making you ready to get/do/keep a job. If someone told you they were, they lied.

    Colleges are in the business of selling you course credits; that's their revenue stream. If they can take the same lessons from a couple $40 "Learn C# in 30 days" books, and turn it into a 4 year program they make money. Its in their best interest to SLOW DOWN your education so as to turn 3 months of learning into 4 years of classes to SELL you.

    Next: Most of these courses do the same thing they've been doing for 20 years. By the end of the 2nd year you'll still be making console applications. Have you used a console application in the last decade? Me neither. Then you'll move up to basic WinForms applications that really aren't well designed and would never be architected in a manner similar to what the university program makes you do.

    Meanwhile: In the real world desktop applications are based on WPF/XAML/MVVM and Web Api/Web App development. Look at what you really do with your own computer and smart phone: Everything is data-centric and provided to you from a web service. Now go find a course actually teaching you that skill: A skill employers are LOOKING and PAYING for. Go on, I dare you.

    What is the end goal? Are you trying to stress-test your code to see how it holds up to user interaction?

    Increment a variable:

    myVariable = myVariable + 1;
    
    // or
    
    myViarable++;

    Am I just blind, or is there no link on a person's profile page to their blog? That's silly.

    Yep. They are coding on a "Whole 'nother level" above my last employer. Makes me feel like like I'm in the special slow learners group. But that's a nice side effect of new environments: They make you stretch past your comfort zone and learn new techniques.

    01aug13: I've changed employers and no longer working at home. So I won't be answering posts in real-time through out the work day. Don't take this as disinterest in the site. Its just I can't do that from a new office as a new employee. So its nights and weekends for me.

    I need to run through them and clean them up, stitch panoramas together etc. Shot about 700 frames. I'll keep maybe 50 at most. 10% or little less is about average.
