I have transparency in my buckyball avatar. I've noticed that on the community member badge, this seems to cause some issues. Is it Fred I see in the background through the transparency? I'm not using the badge anyway, but I just thought I'd let you know.

I was checking my profile, and it appears that within the space of one or two days where I've not been very active at all, the little rankings (xyz Contributions **(#abc)**) seem to have placed myself, and some other members' profiles I looked at, way up the list. I had been sitting down in the #800-#1000 range from memory. It's as if other members with equal or better stats than me have disappeared or are being omitted from results? As I said, I've not been very active over this time. I'm not complaining, just wondering what's going on.

The odd capitalisation in my username was initially an acident, but I've embraced it anyway. Just to see what would happen, I tried changing my username to 'Assembly Guy' instead, but I'm being told that the username is already taken. I understand that it's case insensitive so that someone can't call themself 'dani' (all lowercase) and impersonate, but could we maybe change the username changing process such that if you own the username already, you can change the case of it? As I write this, I'm convincing myself I've written it in a way that makes no sense...

I've noticed some poor accuracy in the little read/new icon to the left of each forum on the homepage. I've seen a 'NEW' message for the assembly forum quite a few times over the past few weeks, only to find there were no new posts there. AFAIK, ususally after visiting the forum, the icon on the homepage tells me I've read everything in the forum, as it should, but in the next few days, it says 'NEW' again when indeed there are no new topics. Is this a known problem?

Maybe it's my browser or my screen width, but the Daniweb social sidebar's being doing this lately: ![a3cb98be35ec8e6d2965b6bd8fadca06](/attachments/small/4/a3cb98be35ec8e6d2965b6bd8fadca06.png "align-left") I'm running Firefox 23 on Linux, 1280x800 screen size. Not happening on Chromium 29, nor Midori 0.5.5 on the same PC. I've got 5 other browsers I can test with if you want... ;)

Are there any other radio hams on Daniweb? Statistically speaking, there are bound to be some - I'm just curious :P 73s ZL2DBP

Hi, excuse me if this already exists, but could we have a means of syntax-highlighting code that is tailored to the forum that it's posted on, and optionally an author-specified language. I.e. on the C forum, the highlighing would be heavily tailored to highlight C code. You get the idea I'm sure. I've noticed very marginal highlighting over on the Assembly forum which makes code harder to read - especially since certain languages (cough assembly cough) can sometimes be messy in themselves without the syntax highlighting messing things up further. Cheers

For fun, I want to write my own image format. I'm going to have to draw pixels to a Window, but I haven't found any nice, simple, light librarys that can do this. I've thought about using OpenGL, but it's kind of messy and over-complicated to write code for and a lot of the time it doesn't seem to agree with me. All I need the graphics library to do is initialise a window for me, and let me feed it an X,Y and RGB so I can plot pixels. Any suggestions?

Why don't we just give bogus code to people asking for us to do their homework? ;) I mean, it'd really teach them a lesson when their tutor/teacher/lecturer talks to them about their code... Discuss.

I just noticed that Perl and Python are under the Software Development category, but not Web Development, while Ruby is under Web Dev and not under Software Dev category. Don't get me wrong, they *do* belong where they currently rest, but perhaps a link to Perl, Python and Ruby could be put under both Web Dev and Software Dev; Perl and Python are still widely used for Web Dev, and I was thinking that maybe someone may go looking for Perl under Web Dev. Plus Ruby's not exclusively used for Web Dev. I don't mean duplication of forums or anything, …

Has anyone made some really cool (or not so cool) 512-byte programs in assembly? I used to hear about people taking part in competitions where they'd try and make, say, a bootloader (or a program like a calculator, for example) and pack-in as many features as they could, the only constraints being that it must be bootable (ie. stuck onto a floppy as its boot sector) and must only occupy the 512-byte boot sector - ie. can't load code from files on the disk and run it. I just thought that I'd put it out there. Anyone made something along …

#include <stdio.h> int main() { printf("Hello, World!\n"); return 0; } I've come across DaniWeb when using search engines to find solutions to a programming problem, but never really stayed for long. Finally, I decided to register and help out a bit maybe. I'm mainly interested in C and bare-bones Intel Assembly and OS Dev. Interested to see what this place is like...
