    Perhaps you have touched that in your videos and I've missed it, regarding your std::max with long long and int example: why not explicit type conversion using functional notation instead of, longer, static_cast? I wonder, are there significant differences?

    Thanks for the very interesting lecture, quality as always.

    Quick question to explicit conversion operators and the bool.

    Has this feature been actually released?

    I'm using Visual Studio 2012 (Build 11.0.51106.01) and compilation of this trivial code:

    struct T{  explicit operator bool() const { return true; }};
    int main() {}


    throws error

    error C2071: 'T::operator bool' : illegal storage class
