It mostly depends upon the video card you are going to use. I have dual monitor support on my server (a Linux CentOS system with nVidea 1800GT card w/ 2 ports). My laptop has an HDMI and VGA ports, and runs an nVidia GTX card. Unfortunately, it will display the same output on both monitors... :-( I will report back if I can overcome this problem.

I've had similar problems when either the CPU or RAM would overheat. As a Linux user, I had access to the sensors tool and could monitor the temperature of these parts. I found that the RAM was overheating, but because I was only using 1/2 of the available slots, I staggered the spacing and the problem went away. Now, it runs nice and cool! At 10+ years old, it is still a kick-### server! Dual quad-core Intel chips and 8GB of RAM. Also, it, being custom built, has a 1000 watt PS. Never go cheap on the power supply!

In the colorPicker.cpp file you have specified the class colorPicker to be derived from itself. EitherRmove the ':ColorPicker' from the class declaration, or change the caps 'C' to lowercase 'c'. IE::class ColorPicker::colorpicker. That said, DON'T DO THAT! It will just come back and bite you on the rear.

The pointer just points to NULL. It has no storage space. you need to allocate space. You could use strdup to do that. IE, sentence = strdup("helloworld"); strdup will allocate space for the string (including terminating NUL character) and copy the string to the newly allocated space that "sentence" now owns.

Simple two-dimensional matrix. First column is the ticket price. Second is the number of tickets were sold at that price. To compute the income, iterate through the matrix, row by row, multiplying the price by number of tickets. Got it? If not, go back to your basic maths.

Ouch! Not sure what you can do as the system is remote. Have you run chkdsk on the system to see if there are file system problems? You can do that without rebooting, or on reboot if you wish. Anyway, a reboot may be necessary. Given the user directory is gone and the user account isn't there any longer, I'm not sure what you can do. If you had a recent system backup and you were on site, then not so much an issue, though if the backup disc is online you might be able to restore the user data after recreating the user account. You will lose anything done in the interim however. :-(

There is always the speed of light to consider, plus switching time in the necessary optical cable repeaters. That's about 135ms to traverse the world without repeaters, routers, switches, etc. From Amsterdam to NYC you still are looking a 20ms just to cover the distance. There there are all of the routers, spy systems, switches, etc. Longer if you go via satellite. These are barriers that cannot be avoided. So, if your packet from Amsterdam to NYC takes less than 100 ms, consider it a win. Try pinging a server across the Atlantic like that with Speedtest.net to see what is your likely best bet.

I see now. Thanks. I guess next "breakthrough" is when we will find out how to travel faster than light. Only 500 billion years to go!

You need to read up on sed and Linux/Unix regular expressions. The dot (.) has a special meaning - ie, any character. You need to preface each with an escape back slash (in a shell, two back slashes) to tell the tool to consider only a dot. Also, forward slashes are expression separators. They also need to be escaped like the dots. Try some experimentation until the output reflects your intention.

Persuant to my comment about recursive exceptions, that tool found that a lot of C++ compilers in the early 1990's had major exception handling issues! I had written a solid recursive fib function in C years before for a contract I had with the Mellon Bank to balance their S&P 500 index funds daily after the market closed. It was used to determine which of the "smaller" equities would be included in the bag of stocks, so the appropriate buy/sell orders would be placed before the market open the following day.

At the time, they had over $50 billion in investments - retirement funds from states, major corporations, etc.
