Although I do believe they've been experiencing technical difficulties lately, such as SQL errors. Also, thier board had a terrible crash the other day, and they lost over a month's-worth of posts because they hadn't backed up the server. [/edit]
>Is is a good place to learn C++ (and C) or not?
An excellent place to start learning. They also have a message board of their own, so you can ask questions about the tutorials, or about C/C++ in general.
There are some people there who respond to a lot of posts without really knowing or understanding anything. There are a lot of people who do that here. That's okay; just pay attention whenever Bubba or Prelude or Salem or Dave Sinkula or Mad_Guy say anything. And machines like quzah are great. There are several real idiots, though, who say things that come from their own imaginary self-orbiting world. I might be one of them.
I just get really tired at their inane conversations.
So yes, it's a good site. At least morally. I don't know if it's the best. Some places know C better.

Is that different from other forums? You're going to have stupid people around in any situation, whether it be real-life, or just on the Internet...
>There are several real idiots, though, who say things that come from their own imaginary self-orbiting world.
You must be referring to me. I honestly think that they hate me over there at CBoard (except for maybe twomers and dwks), so I only pop in once in a while to offer some advice to newbies.
>I might be one of them.
Nah, you're not one of them. I know that.
>I just get really tired at their inane conversations.
One thing that really gets me is how fast they can get off-topic in a thread. A thread that's more than a couple of pages has already gone off-topic. You just know it before you even bother looking. And if it's a popular topic, it means it will get closed because it will gets into the er... unmentionables ;)
I especially like the main part of the site, which is far more educational (in my opinion) than the message board. That's where all the bored programmers hang out.
