I've been having a different yet related problem for around 4 years on just this forum, and on any browser, any PC. When I go to the forum "fresh" e.g. just turned on my PC in the morning and typed in the url, I appear to be logged out. If I then try to login the software does so but sets all posts ...

You seem to be applying corporate thinking to something that is to all intents and purposes a hobby for everyone involved. You may get the odd person driven enough to want to do as you say, but jumping in and saying "Hey, everyone start working" will quickly make the venture a whole lot less fun for...

Well, the C shouldn't be capitalised with a semicolon, but it should with a colon because in terms of capitalisation it is the same as a full stop (period).

Y'know, time was a hacker would do something interesting when they took down a page, like post 1,000 goatse pictures or make a subtle parody of the original page.

Frankly this attempt reeks of laziness :P

In that case, I think sorting out the compiler documentation seems a good idea - I'd love to help but it's hard to get a good view of what the compiler's actually trying to do just by scrolling through source files, especially when every source file uses functions and procedures in other files.

Thanks to KristopherWindsor for clarifying the problem, and thanks to dkl for the workaround - I'll use operator = x for the time being, but it still seems like there's a bug in return statements.

Constructor not called upon return from operator?

I came across a problem with memory access violations, and discovered it was because the constructor of my udt wasn't being called when a new instance was created for the return from one of its operators. Is this normal behaviour for some internal reason, or a bug?

ASM Oddness...

I'm having trouble with a certain SSE instruction within an ASM block. I'm using addps to add two vectors together, now it works fine if I load the two vectors into xmm0 and xmm1 respectively, then add them together. However if I try to just move the first into xmm0 and add the second to it directly...

Yes, but calling a standard screen resolution through Windows isn't "messing with ports". It's perfectly true that in the days of DOS, calling ports without knowing what you were doing was a sure-fire way of causing trouble, but setting a screen mode has little to no associated risk, especially if i...

Type operator trouble

I'm trying to achieve something similar to this: shape.vertex(x, y) = anxyzvalue Where anxyzvalue is a udt, shape is a udt and vertex(x,y) is a sub or function in the type assigned to shape. I'm using a custom dynamic array that enables each "shape" to be assigned an arbitrary number of vert...

Perhaps it is merely that the community would rather not have other people's views forced upon them under the banner of "I know best".

So you found the issue important enough to "point out" why FB isn't notable enough for wikipedia, yet anyone who provides a counter-argument is a circlejerking fanboy?

I think I'll leave everyone else to draw their own conclusions on maturity.
