Dogstopper's Code Mania > 6 weeks of greatness

Posted 07 March 2012

Hello everyone,

In case you haven't noticed, I have not been very active for the last 6-7 weeks. It's not because I don't like you all - it's because I am a member of my high school's FIRST Robotics Team (4265). I was asked to take the role of senior programmer and hopefully program this robot.

Dogstopper's Code Mania > Know Your Datatypes

Posted 15 April 2011

Because data is the foundation of computing, it is very important to understand how they work. Some of the most notorious hacks through hacker history have occurred because the programmer made an invalid assumption of the data. Take C's scanf() function. What happens when a user inputs a set of characters that is too large for the buffer?...
