Heya!

I just came to think of it: I'm curious towards other people's projects smile.gif especially if they're working on professional projects.
I'm studying Computer Sciences (first bachelor) and already feel some big luv for C++ and python (my first two languages, python was my first).

My current projects are:
  • graphics engine utilizing .ini files as input, creating 2D line drawings, 2D l-systems, 3D line drawings and 3D figures, lights, sphere & cilinder figure generation (using those 2 to create other figures) and shadow. (C++)
  • train rail network using contracts and Google Test framework (C++)

So yeah, if you feel like posting/talking about some projects/languages/programming, feel free to post it here biggrin.gif

As always, stuff concerning programming and projects need some rules:
#1: do not post any code in case it is closed source from a company or whatsoever, people can read/copy/use it.
#2: If you need any help, make sure to first check out some reference pages on the webz. You're welcome to post a question, but we aren't here to solve your whole project. Besides you need to learn it yourselves too, right?

Edit #1: poll added :3 not that it shows realistic results, just curious what people like here smile.gif

I am a networking major, so my projects differ a bit. Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to get my hands on and fool around with some business grade networks or hardware, so I mainly do my reading and learn from network admins that I game with.

Right now I am exploring Linux, which I should have done a while ago. I need to get the basics of it down. I plan to setup and configure some basic servers.

I am going to mess around with windows server as well and explore things I do not know yet. I don't mind clicking and reading.

Whenever I build my new system (depends on when the GTX 700's pop out), my current rig may go elsewhere as a server ( I would want to get onboard graphics though, so some replacements will be necessary)

Further explore router configurations. Always something new to learn (and I have access to it) I really wish I could buy 2 routers and bridge them, but circumstances will not permit me doing that.

And lastly, setting up some tech tool USB's (which I should have done a while ago, but I never really needed the tools). Found some good ones which really help with fixing PC's. I would like to learn more about some of the software though, so yet more reading I must do.

That's a lot of reading, lols tongue.gif. The server & networking sounds really interesting, though I'm not sure whether I'll walk that path wink.gif and ... you're in your major without even having toyed with linux? I constantly use ubuntu (11.10 atm) on a 9 year old laptop with a 1.76Ghz single core and 2gb's of ram (website says max 512mb, hehehe, wich i blatenly ignored) and it actually runs it just fine. I truly love Ubuntu/Linux now smile.gif they're awesome in so many ways. They've only got one downside: no gaming / .exe's. This may sound like blasphemy to most people, but I believe a mix between ubuntu and windows 7 could work out really well (I have no idea how OS's are made, with the kernel stuf etc...so yeah it could probably be impossible to try and merge OS's)

My sig rig is having some trouble...too few HDD's etc to get a decent working station out of it. I'm planning on getting a 500GB-1TB HDD for Ubuntu, 1,5TB-2TB for windows7 (pure gaming and media) and then use a 320GB-500GB older HDD for a dual boot with w7 and Ubuntu that are likely to be test subjects (all non-healthy fundling & toying around and overclocking). I suddenly think about going to the store and buying HDD's...hmmm hahaha.

I wish I knew more about servers, there's just so much information about it! this dude's server is just jaw dropping²

I have so many projects on the go I've lost track, but my main one would be building a CMS in Perl.
However at this very moment in time I'm re-writing PuTTY's GUI (C++).

There's a few ways you can approximate that:
  1. WINE on Linux
  2. VirtualBox on Windows/Linux with 'Seamless Mode' and a Linux/Windows guest
  3. Linux on a VM/separate machine and X11 forwarding in SSH (XMing)
  4. A POSIX environment installed on Windows (MingGW, Cygwin, etc)

Personally I use a mixture of 1 and 2

Yeah that's what I'm currently using, but I've had troubles with my diskimages more recently...and I think I lost quite some data (it used to be my programming ubuntu, can't find ' / ' anymore when booting frown.gif was the first error and now it made room for a black screen ).
So I want to give it another try, just getting those OS's on different drives, besides, I like more than 15GB's of disk space for an image (I know you can adjust it, but that will only fill your windows installation up. You'll also have to make a backup from everyhting in case you're reinstalling windows... kind of a hassle)

I've also tried Cygwin, but I personally can't work with it, it contains too much and the documentations are like, really long biggrin.gif

Wine has been stable for some games/apps, but it's not the best solution yet.

Btw, what's a CMS, PuTTY's GUI (I know what a GUI is, I'm asking about the first word tongue.gif), or nr 3 in your list? O.o yeah I could google it, but not feeling googling haha

CMS = content management system. Stuff like Wordpress

MingGW = Cygwin, except it works (unlike Cygwin, which is pretty much just crapware)

PuTTY = Windows SSH, telnet (etc) client

SSH = Secure SHell - essentially it's Telnet but with encryption and tunnelling. The Tunnelling part is pretty impressive though, it means you can use SSH for secure file transfers, port forwarding, and all sorts. It's pretty bloody powerful once you get your hands dirty with it.

X11 = Linux's graphical subsystem

X11 forwarding via SSH = running remote Linux application on a local system. Essentially the application is processed on the remote system (just like they would if you remote desktoped (RDP) / VNC'ed in) except they are rendered locally as a normal window.

pretty kewl, those are some really interesting subjects smile.gif There's so much to be learnt with computer sciences, yet few people actually know anything about it, they're just consumers tongue.gif when I'm just looking around for information about servers or anything, I sometimes go like 'wth did i just read?' xd

I constantly use ubuntu (11.10 atm) on a 9 year old laptop with a 1.76Ghz single core and 2gb's of ram (website says max 512mb, hehehe, wich i blatenly ignored) and it actually runs it just fine. I truly love Ubuntu/Linux now smile.gif they're awesome in so many ways. They've only got one downside: no gaming / .exe's. This may sound like blasphemy to most people, but I believe a mix between ubuntu and windows 7 could work out really well (I have no idea how OS's are made, with the kernel stuf etc...so yeah it could probably be impossible to try and merge OS's)
My sig rig is having some trouble...too few HDD's etc to get a decent working station out of it. I'm planning on getting a 500GB-1TB HDD for Ubuntu, 1,5TB-2TB for windows7 (pure gaming and media) and then use a 320GB-500GB older HDD for a dual boot with w7 and Ubuntu that are likely to be test subjects (all non-healthy fundling & toying around and overclocking). I suddenly think about going to the store and buying HDD's...hmmm hahaha.
I wish I knew more about servers, there's just so much information about it! this dude's server is just jaw dropping²

Yep. I don't plan to get into the kernel and full blown customization of Linux. I just need to know how to navigate, explore, and toy with files as I do in windows. The most I do in windows as far as customization is simply applying new themes which require some editing of the .dll files, which I found is actually not that hard. Installing in Linux is a little different, depending on the distribution. I have a linux mint vm and flash drive setup for toying purposes but now that I am back in class, it is on the back burner again. From what I understand so far, unless the distro has a software manager, the terminal is the main source of installing things. It shouldn't take me long to learn most of my projects. I just need to dedicate the time.

You'll get used to it. I started with installations using the simple 'sudo apt-get install ' command. It was a hassle at the start...but I got used to it. I now use the ubuntu software centre redface.gif much easier to be honest. Thank you ubuntu..thumb.gif

good luck with your projects smile.gif

That's the command I have seen. Really depends on the distro. Linux Mint is built from Ubuntu so it has the software manager as well. I am sure I may come in touch with a company running linux that requires that command so it is something I plan to learn.

Good luck with your projects as well. Maybe I can learn some programming from this thread smile.gif

I have had basic HTML, CSS, and JavaScript experience in my web design class, but it was nothing major. My next JavaScript class isn't for a while. Not much programming involved in networking.
