  1. In Topic: Video Games Chatter and/or Currently Playing

    Posted 15 Nov 2015

    I started playing League of Legends, and liking it so far. It's amusing since I watched DoTA2 championships (didn't really play the game all that much) and enjoyed it, but I didn't care about LoL tournament at all. Hm. Still, my nephew plays it on ranked with his team, and he installed it on my machine to play when he's here (because of the monitor :P) and since it was there I played a match... and it wasn't half bad at all.

    I enjoy playing as sustain support with Soraka. Any ADC in need of a babysitter here can feel free to shoot me a message. :P

  3. In Topic: 4K resolution nightmares

    Would you like your paper books and other printed media to be in 96 DPI? If paper needs to be at least 200 DPI or better, why put up with a display that has less?

    Now... That's a great point, actually. One that I admit didn't really take into consideration before.
    Of course, you usually have a computer monitor about twice as far from your eyes than your book/paper printed media - a "book" you usually hold in your hands, or otherwise close enough to comfortably switch pages, a monitor is usually at an arm's length or more from you though.

    So, I'd risk saying that a monitor can get by with lesser DPI than printed media - if only because actual "dots" are further from us, therefore smaller.

    And so I get back to asking my question again - do we actually get a really noticeable difference when working on a 15.6" screen - assuming correct scaling of applications? (Comparing 1080p with 4K)

    Keep in mind that I'm not presupposing an answer here. Sorry if I didn't stress that enough before...

    I'm on 24" and 1080p is quite alright, though I'd be interested in seeing 4K (possibly on a tad larger screen) to see if it's even more comfortable. However, I've got my doubts when it comes to screens as small as 15.6".

    Now that I think about it - my monitor has around 92 DPI (or rather PPI). Since it's twice as far from my eyes than a book, which is comfortable to read at around 300 DPI, then for it to be comparable to a book it would have to have around twice the resolution so that it would have twice the PPI than it has now.
    So, at 4K 24" monitor will have around 184 PPI... That would be a bit better than a book, considering the viewing distance...

    So, my shady logic would seem to show that 4K 24" screen would be nice to have. Substituting the numbers it would also seem to show that 15.6" screen having 141 PPI @ 1080p should be slightly less comfortable to read than a book, so 4K with 282 PPI would still mean some improvement that should be possible to be noticed...
  4. In Topic: why the addrees are changing

    Posted 4 Nov 2015


    here the 0x0108 cannot come cuz we are passing node2 address so 0x010C tthis has to come.

    Ah, see, that's not true. 0x010C is not an address that node2 points at. 0x010C is an address of node2.next, or in other words, under that address the value of a pointer node2.next lives.

    Print out what values pointers head and node2 have - both in the example and in your own code. In the example node2's value is 0x0108. That's the address to the first byte in memory where the Node structure lives. The Node structure itself is composed of an int and a pointer, in that order, so under that address you'll find the data, the int.
    Look at the example memory block - node2's memory starts at 0x0108, so that's the value of node2.

    Again, 0x010C is an address where node2.next lives, that's "inside" node2.

    The output is not wrong. : )

    Interesting! I was thinking about doing some work similar to what you say a few weeks back but haven't started yet, or even finalized my decision to do that. I think we should discuss that sometime?

    You had some neat pieces of advice there. Couldn't stop myself from voting! Especially the references to the standard. Concise and to the point! ;)

    No, it's not. I've seen you naked, doing the dance for me. The fact that your mom caught us at that moment changes nothing!
    Traitor! :'(

    Come on, with your skills, you should be able to find a job in IT pretty soon.
    BTW, I completed Surely You're Joking, Mr Feynman, and it was awesome ^_^
