|jimbojones||01:32 am - helping people with C++ can be surprisingly entertaining|
|(21:06:48) Jimbo: why not just say Sequence* temp(c);|
(21:07:00) Lucie: coffee!
(21:07:07) Jimbo: pour me a cup!
(21:07:22) Lucie: haha...seriously though, that's what it shows me!
(21:07:30) Lucie: Sequence* temp COFFEE
(21:07:48) Jimbo: it was giving you hexadecimal somehow?
(21:09:37) Lucie: can you say Sequence* temp ( _c_ ) underscores so it doesn't turn into coffee for me!
(21:09:41) Jimbo: OHHHHH... so it's a smiley on your end?
(21:09:46) Lucie: yes!
(21:09:49) Jimbo: I was so confused... I thought it was giving you the literal value of a pointer
(21:09:52) Jimbo: C0 FF EE
|(23:39:53) Lucie: haha, the compiler does not like my ostream at all|
(23:40:13) Jimbo: that is because your ostream does not wash and smells funny
(23:40:24) Lucie: maybe so! or maybe because I say when j hits 59 then: out >> '\n'; which is surprisingly not correct
(23:41:57) Jimbo: the only word in that sentence I have a problem with is "surprisingly" =)
(23:42:11) Lucie: yeah, I was SHOCKED
(23:42:30) Jimbo: the compiler is not a big fan of the "never mind what I said, you heard what I meant!" school of communication
(23:42:33) Lucie: well, you use IN for istream
(23:42:50) Lucie: so why can't I use OUT for ostream
(23:43:01) Jimbo: I think the compiler should just shut up and cram the stream into the constant like you asked it to
(23:45:29) Lucie: I did do that?
(23:45:56) Jimbo: yes... you said, take this stream named out, and stuff it inside the constant value '\n'
(23:46:00) Jimbo: I like that
(23:46:07) Jimbo: you think like someone with POWER
(23:46:17) Jimbo: why make x equal to 2, when you can just change the value of 2 instead?
Current Mood: amused
Current Music: Daft Punk - One More Time
And it only makes me cry.
That is because you are a wussy little nancy-boy. =)
In all seriousness though, I feel you. Actually I hated those people WORSE because, in my case, those companies WOULD pay those people who didn't know what the fuck they were doing, whereas by contrast they wouldn't hire me at all. No college. Nevermind actually knowing what I was *doing*, no degree, no hire...
