    If I recall correctly, poorly-written anti-virus software is the #2 cause of bluescreen crashes. #1 is poorly-written display drivers!

    This is a very true statement, I was presented with a laptop to yesterday, running Windows XP SP2 and Norton's and it was bluescreening on boot up.

    Popped into safe mode and disabled norton from running, restarted, still bluescreening, back into safe mode and uninstalled the video driver.

    Restarted, it booted fully redetected the graphics card, restarted 10 times and it seemed fine after that.

    Wells I don't mind being corrected on my English! As it's rubbish...... thanks for the tip!

    What you says makes sense. I think I begining to get my head around this now.

    I think I'm going to start writing some code and play around with some ideas. I'll also re-read what I've already read, to see if it makes more sense.....

    This is great so much easier than trying to figure out if you really understand a topic on your own.

    Keep them comming! Big Smile

    Objects are instances of Classes. Classes are like the blue prints of a house. Objects are actual houses built using the blue print.

    Classes allows you to encapsulate functionalities and relevant properties. The hard question is often where to draw the class boundary, i.e. how do you decide this functionality belong in one class and not another? Depending on the development methodology and the type of application you are writing, you may not care.

    Well designed classes encourages reuse. Couple with other features of OO e.g. Inheritance you can build powerful reusable and extendable frameworks. The Dot Net framework is a true testament of this.

    I don't know of any good materials, the best way to learn is probably to start your own toy project and get stuck into it. Build a Wiki or something.

    Thanks for the reply.  This is beginning to make sense.

    So if I wrote an application to track site visits to customers, then I could write a class called customers and that class would have certain functions, routines and properties that I could call over and over?

  • Class's

    I'm a novice programmer, I use to write software when I was younger back in the Quick Basic Days....

    I'm trying to get back into more of a hobby than anything else. I've been reading up on a few things, but I seem to have two areas which I think I'm over complicating in my head.

    These are Databases and Classes.

    Right now I want to get my head around classes, can any one help? From what I understand thus far a class is your object in OOP, is that correct?

    Why right a class, I don't fully undertand the advanatge, although it appears the "right thing to do!".

    I hope people can recommend some good advice reading material to get me started.

    I'm the kind of person who really wants to do things the correct way.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey, I think it would of been better to ask "Where is Scoble?" (IMHO)

    Due to all the goings on in London recently....

  • DRM, whats the big deal?

    trolane wrote:
    All i have been hearing about the last few days is how hardware drm is bad. My view of it would be it is not bad. My experience with DRM has been good. I purchase music from MSN music and have no issues with the DRM. I can copy it to any portable device (phone or my gateway mp3/wma player) , burn cds ( though no need to ) and play it on 5 machines. 5 machines allows music to be shared on 5 different computers, more then enough. I prefer wma or wmv over any other format as they have better quality. 

    In order for hardware to enforce DRM the media must be DRMed to begin with. So all the illegal content will still be usable while publishers issue DRM content. Who should have a problem with DRM content? The people used to ripping off content providers. I'm sure DRM content will have pretty liberal rights like MSN music has or else they would not like the MSN music service for delivering music.

    My only bad experience with DRM has been the people who cannot implement it as good as Microsoft, aka FullAudio. Formatting your machine with FullAudio licenses is a pita.

    I am a firm beleiver in "monopolies" being good when it comes to software. I never enjoyed having to worry about Netscape vs. IE in the browser war days. Netscape never supported the good stuff. Integration between products tightly can only happen under one roof. If this wasn't true using linux wouldn't be such a pita with the thousand mediocre software projects. All applications that integrate well are made under one roof. For example, office suites, browser/email suites.

    Anyways, the point is I have full trust Microsoft knows what it is doing and i'll still be buying from them till the day i die.


    I couldn't of said that any better myself!

    Well done, I fully support you!

    I DARE them. I'll wipe it out myself.


    Feedburner had a hackday recently. This is a cool idea and one we're working on internally at Microsoft. Invite a bunch of people over to hack on a specific product. [/qutoe]

    As for WMP 10 - Both my SMT 5600 and my i-Mate SP3i shipped with 10. I'd be surprised to see a brand new unit ship without.

    Over here Orange are taking a life time to release a new rom with WMP10....

    I'm sure they are not going to release the update for the SPV C500 and force everyone who wants WMP10 to upgrade to the C550, when it's released. Sad

    Roll on for Windows Mobile 2005, when we can update our phones without having to wait for the provider to get there act togther.
