gotoAndLearn() - Free video tutorials from Lee Brimelow on Adobe Flash 11 signs youre no longer a hard-core gamer You used to play videogames all night. Your Quake prowess was unmatched; your skills at Command & Conquer unparalleled. You have a gaming history that stretches back beyond the PlayStation generation to the SNES, Megadrive, Amiga and ZX Spectrum. You were there at the dawn of gaming. Tick-tock... You prefer playing against the computer Online gaming against real people has become depressing – it exposes your faded, spoon-sharp reflexes and you abhor the trash-talk from 12-year old fanboys. You only play when your girlfriend is out Because you only have one high-def TV and to play videogames on it while she's at home is 'selfish' and not something the two of you can do 'together'. You believe that winning isn't everything It's the taking part that counts. It's been days, not hours since you last switched on your console You’re the oldest person trading in games at GameStation So you lie about why you’re there. You like your Xbox 360 and your PS3 equally Wednesday's just fine.

Apprendre la guitare, cours débutants morceaux acoustiques sans solfège - - Manomaya Low Level Bit Hacks You Absolutely Must Know I decided to write an article about a thing that is second nature to embedded systems programmers - low level bit hacks. Bit hacks are ingenious little programming tricks that manipulate integers in a smart and efficient manner. Instead of performing some operation (such as counting the 1 bits in an integer) by looping over individual bits, these programming nuggets do the same with one or two carefully chosen bitwise operations. To get things going I'll assume that you know what the two's complement binary representation of an integer is and also that you know all the the bitwise operations. I'll use the following notation for bitwise operations in the article: & - bitwise and | - bitwise or ^ - bitwise xor ~ - bitwise not << - bitwise shift left >> - bitwise shift right The numbers in the article are 8 bit signed integers (though the operations work on arbitrary length signed integers) that are represented as two's complement and they are usually named 'x'. Here we go. Bit Hack #1. 1. 2.

Its tough to be a Man It's tough to be a Man Do you know how tough it is being a man...? If you put a woman on a pedestal and try to protect her from the rat race, you're a male chauvinist. If you stay home and do the housework, you're a pansy. If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay, this is exploitation. If you get a promotion ahead of her, that is favoritism. If you mention how nice she looks, it's sexual harassment. If you cry, you're a wimp. If you make a decision without consulting her, you're a chauvinist. If you ask her to do something she doesn't enjoy, that's domination. If you appreciate the female form and frilly underwear, you're pervert. If you like a woman to shave her legs and keep in shape, you're sexist. If you try to keep yourself in shape, you're vain. If you buy her flowers, you're after something. If you're proud of your achievements, you're full of yourself. If she has a head ache, she's tired. If you want it Too often, you're oversexed. if you don't, there must be someone else.

quot;SOA&quot; PetShop 3.0 Le PetShopDNG 3.0, l'Architecture Orientée Services en action par Julien BRUNET ( Weblog ) Épisode 1 Impression papier : environ 22 pages Version 1.0 Toute ressemblance et détournement d'un PetShop existant est ... volontaire ! Cet article tente de mettre en application la théorie SOA sur l'exemple académique que constitue le site Web d'e-commerce "PetShopDNG". La démarche employée est volontairement "naïve" pour susciter débats et questionnements. "[...] C'est ainsi que Thomas Gil concluait l'excellent PetShopDNG 2.0 . Pour les personnes qui n'ont jamais entendu parler ni de PetShopDNG 1.0 ni de 2.0 "le retour", quelques rappels historiques s'imposent... A l'origine, Sun a présenté à la communauté J2EE l'application Java PetStore , laquelle avait pour objectif d'illustrer les "best practice" d'un développement J2EE dans le domaine de l'e-commerce. PetShop .NET fut la réponse de Microsoft, avec les mêmes objectifs (plus un: démontrer que .NET, "c'est mieux"... :-) " [...] En effet ! " [...]

Optimizing C and C++ Code Embedded software often runs on processors with limited computation power, thus optimizing the code becomes a necessity. In this article we will explore the following optimization techniques for C and C++ code developed for Real-time and Embedded Systems. Many techniques discussed here have roots in the material we covered in the articles dealing with C to Assembly translation. A good understanding of the following articles will help: Premature optimization is the root of all evil Donald Knuth wrote, "Programmers waste enormous amounts of time thinking about, or worrying about, the speed of noncritical parts of their programs, and these attempts at efficiency actually have a strong negative impact when debugging and maintenance are considered. In general, correctness and readability considerations trump code performance issues for most of your code. Adjust structure sizes to power of two Place case labels in narrow range Place frequent case labels first Splitting a switch statement

End of the World. A flash animation (Submit to StumbleUpon and Twitter) Ho kay here's the Earth, just chilling...Damn that is a sweet earth you might say. Wrong!
