As a way of brief introduction I am a New Yorker who has recently transplanted themselves overseas to London. I am a NY Ranger fan and as such have been following their terrific progress on any web medium that I can.
I am new to the C++ world and am learning the third programming language (after FORTRAN, yeah an oldie, but a goodie, and VBA - which doesn't work on my MAC) in order to be able to model financial investments and structures. Not only am I new to C++, but am new to the programming environment of the Mac (which I very much enjoy) - so am about to learn a lot of new things and pray for patience from those brave souls who take the time to answer my questions and queries.
