Posts I've Made

  1. In Topic: Using "notepad++" in order to write programs in "c++"

    Posted 8 Mar 2014

    Some editors, like PHP editor in Netbeans IDE, can highlight certain things inside of strings - like variable names. Similarly C++ editor for Netbeans can highlight escape sequences in a string, and broken escape sequences.

    To highlight arbitrary word inside a string - I see no easy way of doing that, specifically not in N++.

    So d1ngell's and infernorthor's advice of adding custom keyword would be the closest thing to what you want, probably.
  2. In Topic: What are you reading and what is on your book stack to read?

    Posted 6 Jun 2013

    @jon.kiparsky - you just gave me three new positions on my "to read" list, and they're pretty high up there. Thank you. :)
  3. In Topic: What are you reading and what is on your book stack to read?

    Posted 5 Jun 2013

    Aye, I'm getting trough "The Feynman Lectures on Physics" in an audio form when commuting in metro or suburban trains - just like to listen to hist actual voice and intonation. ;) But I'm seriously thinking about buying "The Definitive and Extended Edition" and giving it a go with a more serious approach some time in the future.

    I'm going to start with his "Pieces" tomorrow, probably. Just wanted to complete the letters first. ;)

    Also, still on topic - a few days ahead, hopefully, I'll get to "Quantum Man: Richard Feynman's Life in Science" by Lawrence M. Krauss. Yup, the same author/physicist who wrote "The Physics of Star Trek" and "A Universe From Nothing", amongst others. ;)


    In other news, I've lately read works as different as:
    - "The Life of Pi" - loved the book for how it was realized, still, it made a lousy argument for God existence in the end, one that is utterly unconvincing. I'm willing to let it sly though, you should read it for the fun of it anyways. ;)
    - "Absolute Friends" - wow, what an atmosphere in this one! And the ending was quite not what I figured it would be. This book was suggested to me by an English teacher living in France, and it was well worth the time. Not wanting to spoil the story all I can tell about it is: It's about spies.
    - "The Great Gatsby" - *The* great American novel, as some people want it. In Poland we don't get to read it in high school, or at least my class didn't, so I had no previous bias towards it. Again, I've read it so I could watch the movie. Sometimes people do get something right - it really is a classic. I loved it.
  4. In Topic: What are you reading and what is on your book stack to read?

    Currently reading: "Perfectly Reasonable Deviations from the Beaten Track: The Letters of Richard P. Feynman". I enjoy it so very much.

    Other interesting reads I completed lately were: (good to read them before the letters)
    - "Surely You're Joking, Mr Feynman!: Adventures of a Curious Character"
    - "What Do You Care What Other People Think?: Further Adventures of a Curious Character"

    Feynman was quite a character.
  5. In Topic: DIC 2012 Community Awards- Winners

    Posted 20 Jan 2013

    I'm third... *Dazzled*
    I mean, thank all of you who have taken your precious time and voted for me. I honestly did not deserve it, but I'm quite touched and, well, startled.

    Congratulations for all the winners, you made it. :)

    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 ^_^

    Seeing how your last recommendation was Song of Fire and Ice, I'll definitely try his works :D Any work in particular?
