Dude, I'm so sorry you had to work with a company that won the Golden Poo

or was it not that bad?

I guess they are mostly known for screwing over their customers...

the GP award was for bad customer services, and a few other things which all other companies do.

as a contract programmer (in Canada, not the US) this did not apply to me. in fact i was paid so well, for my short time with them, that i do not need to work until next february.

perhaps, their unliked money-grabbing DLCs (etc.) are only there to serve my paycheck(s)

hahaha i like it

Mr dugdiamond, tell me if im overstepping a boundry here but im honestly very curious, i was wondering what sort of direction you took to get

to where you are today? I mean with the coding and development etc

I am just about to start my final year of my Computer Science degree but i have realised that getting this degree by no means makes me a good

programmer, to become one of them all the hard work has to be done because you really enjoy it, not because your have a deadline for a java app

next tuesday!!

Sounds like you must be very good at what you do, you are an asset to this community

MASSIVE different between what I'd call programmers and what colleges push out the other end as developers.

IMO, you have to have an aptitude for programming rather than just having a degree. Coming out with a degree will get you a job as a developer at a great number of places, and pay fairly well.

With the aptitude, you 'can' be hired in on occasion to rectify/assist in what a team of developers are wracking their brains to sort out. All of whom have their degrees.

I would go out on a limb and say that whatever languages are taught in college these days, the graduate can come out the other end and understand to a fair level. On the other hand, I envision programmers being able to not be familiar with a lanuage, pickup a handbook on it, then be able to code with it in a short amount of time.

Personal opinion of course.

okay guys - totally off topic here but you wanted to know my background for coding

when i was 13, i was in one of the first schools in the UK to offer Computer Studies as exam'd class (O-level), and only those in the top two sets in my school for maths could apply. i was in set1 (maths is easy for me)

i passed my computer O-level exam with 99.5%

my family wanted me to go on to sixth form (until 18 for A-levels), but i decided i wanted 'real world' experience and went on a YTS course for typing, knowing that they did word processing etc, and GAVE WORK EXPERIENCE <-----

i ended up as a computer operator working on a mainframe (Honeywell DPS7 - level64) before i was even 17, but, it was boring, and asked one of the programmers to teach me CoBOL, JCL, and Forth.

the YTS course ended, and because i was not yet 18, they could not keep me on full-time as it was against company policy for minors to work shifts

so.... i thought "arrrrrrgh" and joined the army (royal engineers). i was still gutted, but while in the forces i took an open university course in ANSI-C real-time programming (HND) and another in CAD (HNC). i sat the IBM aptitude test (in non-test conditions) and got a A-minus. i spent 9yrs in the army and once i reached sergeant i was allowed to code, while being seconded to the royal signals. there, i self-taught myself x86 and 68000 assembler, specialising in raw graphics design and implementations.

in my spare time i coded from books and visited university bulletin boards (before the 'real' internet as we know it today) to learn new coding skills. i had an amiga500, an atari1040stfm, an Oric-1, and a IBM-PC. squeezing the best out them could only be done with assembly language

i left the army and started my own, very successful, building company.... but still coded in the evenings and spare time.

then, one day socialising, i was introduced to a similarly-minded lad through a work colleague. he had just left reading university, after doing a masters in robotics, and was currently a contracting JAVA coder.

i baffled him with my know-how, and he was confused as to why i was not contracting myself. he said "give me your CV and i will see what i can do with it". over the following few weeks i was bombarded with phone calls from various recruitment agencies wanting to head-hunt me.

i went for several interviews, and instead of asking for a degree (or whatever), they asked me to sit tests... they would give me some code and say "find the errors", or "re-write this, better" - i flew through them, mostly under the time given to finish them

i am an old school koder, who believes .NET is the route of all evil

I LUV C

... jeez, I can mirror that up until the army bit.

I took math early cos o'levels were being phased out and "they'll be worth more than gcses..." .. ok... got a thing with numbers.

As opposed to being active with the talent, I took what turned into a waste of a supervisory role for 13 years - too comfortable. Absolute waste imo. Now I have easy life messing with hardware. Did a contracting job for the health service, created a db for them purely in c cos I refused to use a package.

However, with the aptitude, I needed some sql and vb to setup my brother's business computer last year - took around a weekend to figure it out. Longest time was figuring out why microsoft do things so stupidly and illogical to the way I'm used to thinking.

lol .NET - agreed.

But yeah, c is lovely. I simply have no time for it tbh. I wonder some days where my time and money goes, and I am comfortably paid for what I see as doing f... all. (my opinion not there's cos I've worked in the real world)

.... going back to your original top tho - I always have taskmanager open, double clicked on the usage, to be sure all cores are working - habit. Dunno if you can work that into your gui.

Surprised really you didn't start this in linux - as I'd have figured all hardware info source would be free/free license. Osx transfer would be easy as the acpi is the same, more or less. Windows platform would be the b1tch - imo anyway.

Very impressive Dug although I am tad confused as you said when you were in the army you were second to the Royal Signals, why?

My dad is a tech head and was in the Royal Signals but as far as he had told me and my understanding is software wise/coding doesn't happen much in the Royal Signals or am I just mistaken and when he says to me he doesn't do software or code now.

He just hates doing it, my self coding wise its mostly website coding and when needed editing Linux scripts usually in c compiled by GCC or something if I am not mistaken.

I find Linux a breeze for going through coding, researching the area and learning certain parts of code to fix problems in Linux.

I can see myself being able to learn all parts of C programming but I just haven't been able to track down a reasonably priced big hard back on learning C or C++ programming but please correct me if my way of thinking is illogical here?

But I feel like I should/want to learn both C and C++ programming/code so learn C programming/code first so then when it comes to me learning C++ programming/code it will be easier to understand. I have loaned out books on C and C++ in my college days and I was teaching myself each sections that relate to each other.

So for example I read all the basics for C and C++ programming/code then when learning one section on C++ which was based of some C code, I cross referenced it and learned the C code as well.

Lol damn my OCD and multi-tasking.><
