  • I keep my taskbar on the right/left side. Think about it. For any given window you've got menus, tabs and (possibly several layers of) toolbars at the top and probably a status bar at the bottom... and monitors are perpetually getting shorter and fatter. Because that's precisely what we all want. Less vertical room to read shit and more blank whitespace. I mean look at this: [IMG]http://img703.imageshack.us/img703/46/yeeeeah.png[/IMG] Why do interface designers keep using valuable vertical space instead of just throwing shit somewhere in the gigantic void to the left or right?

What is the difference betwheen building and compiling ?

  • [QUOTE=Kamrua;29987908]Oh, duh. You have to use &&, not ||. You're saying "If the gender isn't male, write this. If the gender isn't female, write this." So if you enter "male", it'll think [i]Oh, "male" != "female", I have to write it.[/i][/QUOTE] Oh... :v:

  • [QUOTE=ROBO_DONUT;29988752]I keep my taskbar on the right/left side.[/QUOTE] This. [QUOTE=ROBO_DONUT;29988752] Why do interface designers keep using valuable vertical space instead of just throwing shit somewhere in the gigantic void to the left or right?[/QUOTE] This. Pisses me off most especially on my netbook - vertical space is extremely limited. Thankfully, Microsoft knew the pitfalls of having a horizontal-only taskbar and has let us pin it vertically in most, if not all, of their operating systems. Now if they could fix my IDE so I can dock windows on secondary monitors without crashing after going in to / out of debug mode, I would be happy. Either that, or don't have all the windows migrate down and to the right 4 pixels every time I attach a debugger. [img]http://eagle.undo.it:8083/img/vertical.jpg[/img] Surely I am not the only person who puts the taskbar vertically on an auxiliary monitor. ...and for that matter, the solution explorer on an auxiliary monitor. It leaves enough space to view code side-by-side on the IDE while keeping vertical space to a maximum (without rotating the display, of course). [img]http://eagle.undo.it:8083/img/ideDualies.jpg[/img] Plus, it allows me to view opinions on forums in 1080p - the viewing resolution intended by most posters :v:

Though it doesn't excuse UI designers not thinking about using that extra horizontal space.

  • Yeah, Code::Blocks has to be one of the least offensive FOSS IDEs. And it doesn't OMNOM your memory like Eclipse.

  • Well then, I shall acquire this fancy IDE of yours and see what I can do about the looks.

  • I use Sublime, which I prefer slightly to Notepad++. Sublime looks cooler with that minimap while Notepad++ is a little more user friendly, but they both have some nice default themes with dark backgrounds and neutral colours. [img]http://i51.tinypic.com/fan5o6.png[/img] I need to find some good GCC x86 Assembly syntax colouring for both of them though.
  • printhex()? There's the %x format specifier for the printf family of functions.
