  1. oh, what's the front-end? I'm not that familiar with C++.
  2. Hide from what? The code is presumably going to need to do something with it so you need the information as is. The code itself is transient so you shouldn't need to be worried about people getting the information off of a running system (unless you have a very specific security issue here). If the application crashes or the server is turned off then the information will be gone. If storing the information to a database you would want to either encrypt it if it needs to be retrieved again (such as an SSN) or hashed if you don't care about getting the value again but only need to compare that the same value was entered again by the user (such as a password). I'm not a C++ dev so I don't know the tools you would use to do that but rest assured someone out there has done it.
  3. I started with a Newcastle Werewolf Red Ale then a Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale today. I like 'em both.
  4. Keep us posted on how the switch goes. I've been looking at smartphones and the Windows Phone looks to be a contender. One problem I can see for myself is that I have to use a mac at work. If I travel I only take my work computer so I'm not sure if it will play nice with an Apple computer.
  5. I don't know. I have a slider that's probably 5 years old. The only thing wrong (other than some scratches) is that the battery doesn't last as long as it used to. I have to charge it every other day now, I used to be able to go nearly a week without charging it.
  6. That's interesting. Pretty fun to look back at games like that. I admittedly skipped that one and went straight to AC2 though.
  7. While I've never actually installed or developed shopping cart software I'd suggest you don't build it from scratch unless you have a full-time web developer on call. Basically the stuff you buy will have the benefit of many other users finding bugs and will be less likely to have security vulnerabilities.
  8. It was okay, but I think the light coming out of it would annoy me after a while. I hope there is a switch to turn the red lights off. They look good for showing it off though.
  9. My thing is, is that we just don't know who caused the attack. There are reports that the Saudi's gave the rebels the chemical weapons and the rebels screwed up. Even if it was the Syrian government, the US taking them out would probably only lead to their weapons falling into the hands of some terrorist group. And that's not even considering all the innocent civilians the US military would kill in the process. (Sorry I think I'm supposed to use the term "Collateral Damage" when it's the military doing the killing.)
  10. Curiously, If money weren't an issue would you support it? I say no. It is sad what is happening but I think US involvement will only make things worse. There is no telling what will happen if the US military gets involved (other than a lot of innocent people getting murdered).
  11. Just curious what peoples thoughts are. Since there are a fair amount of people on here that live outside the U.S. I decided to break it down a bit more.
  12. I have the Razer exactmat. I like it. I tend to move it depending on if I'm gaming or typing and one of the feet came off. It's not a big deal as it still stays where it's supposed to even though it's not glued on but it's annoying. Also, after about 3 years of use, it's definitely gotten smoother where my mouse is at most of the time. Overall, I like it though.
  13. I love how people always say "my kid is so good with computers" when what they really mean is "my kid spends all day reading facebook".
  14. I tried duckduckgo for a while but didn't like the results as well as google.
