This topic has been covered many times before on other websites, but I thought I would give it a shot here too. With the latest version of Hugin creating a panorama is almost stupid simple. First, you choose the selection of images that you want to stitch together. Here is the list that I chose:
Intro I recently came across this article about using the Commodore 64 (the most popular model of computer ever produced) in education and the follow up article that suggests the possibility of a Commodore notebook. When I read those articles I was reminded of two things. I remembered having a dream around 5th grade of having a sub notebook C64. Probably the closest thing that existed at the time was the Apple Powerbook 100, which I don’t ever recall seeing. The second thing that I remembered was that the first time I saw an Eee 2G my very first thought was “this needs to be running a C64 emulator.” Now that Best Buy has released a 9” Eee with a 1.6Ghz CPU at $280, the dream of the ultra portable C64 is easily attainable.
And now for something completely different… A friend requested this recipe after staying with us for a night, so I thought I would put it up here. Disclaimer: I never cook to a recipe, so this is slightly different each time I make it. See the list of options at the bottom to see different variations I have made. Ingredients
I’ve heard this question come up a few times in C++ programming circles, “Why is ++i faster/better than i++?”
An interviewer who thinks he is being clever might present you with a code sample like the following and ask you what the output would be:
I felt like this topic deserved one more article. (See part 1 and part 2 for the background.)
After the first article on loop optimization my cousin pointed out to me that in some cases, tail recursion can actually be faster then loops in C with the help of tail recursion elimination.
The latest release of the EmptyCrate Game Engine was made last night. Changes include:
I recently had a friend point out to me that your typical loop seen in every day code has minor inefficiencies in it which can add up to a good amount of time being wasted. I agreed with him, so I set out to write an article on how to optimize your C++ loops.
