Hi All, had a bit of time to myself and started reading some poetry (out of choice!). This was prompted by the centenary of one of our greatest poets (in English anyway), Dylan Thomas. Hadn't read "Do not go Gentle into that Good Night" since I was in school. Reading it again bent me into a few shapes. I've been reading the old love classics by Donne and O'Reilly ("A White Rose"), but chasing poetry on the internet leaves me cold. Does anybody have any particular favourites?

The biggest heroes and villains in IT history have been revealed as the results of a new poll are published. Perhaps rather surprisingly, Steve Jobs is just as hated as Bill Gates and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is more hated than both of them. But that's just where the shock results from this particular survey start: wait until you see how people voted in the 'greatest computing hero of all time' section. [ATTACH=RIGHT]23676[/ATTACH]The poll, conducted by IT and Telecoms recruitment specialists Greythorn, asked IT professionals in the United Kingdom who they thought the most unpopular person ever in the history …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]22459[/ATTACH]Just how desperately are you looking for love? Unfortunately, for some the answer is all too often all too desperately; to the point where common sense leaps out of the window and is quickly followed by the bank balance. According to new research by the University of Leicester in the UK, hundreds of thousands of people have already fallen to what is being referred to as the online romance scam. In what is thought to be the first formal academic study of its kind, researchers at Leicester University have attempted to measure the true scale of online dating danger from …

I just had to get this one out there. I love daniweb, and I'm sure the [B]VAST[/B] majority of the users here do as well. And, unlike many other websites this one's community is made up of some of the greatest IT and Development minds around "as well as noobs trying to learn how to climb the ladder such as myself". In my humble opinion I believe it would be possible, maybe even a good idea to outsource some IT or Development related tasks to volunteering community members to reduce some costs "and likely make both a tighter community and …

I've been on here for a few weeks now and I [B]JUST[/B] found this CI forum, so let me apologize for the late start, "been too busy on Python". I'm a college student, but not in an IT field. Actually I've switched majors so many times it's ridiculous, Elementary Education, Criminal Justice, Social Work, Christian Ministry. I guess I just honestly don't know what I want to sit down and listen to crap about for four years. But I do love programming, I started a long time ago and then got annoyed by while loops and just put off picking …

I'm developing a program based on the Tower of Hanoi. It accepts the number of discs and returns the amount of turns it takes for those discs to complete the conundrum. All of my inputs work fine, until the input (d) is greater than 31. Is the result too large to return? [CODE] package numTurns; /** * * @author Josh */ public class Main { public static int numTurns (int d) { int turns = 1; if (d == 0) { return 0; } if ( d == 1) { return 1; // returns 1 if d == 1 } …

When cornered by their wife, men sometimes say the most ridiculous things in order to wiggle out of trouble. However, blaming your iPhone for giving the impression you are having an affair has to rate as one of the best excuses ever. According to a [URL="http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1786497"]posting[/URL] in the Apple discussion forums a lady called Susan became suspicious of her husband in the infidelity department. Looking through his stuff, she claims that she "took my husband's i-phone and found a raunchy picture of him attached to an e-mail to a woman in his sent e-mail file (a Yahoo account)." OK, well, …

How cool is that? A financial software programmer has put his coding skills to good use by hacking into a popular video game and adding an Easter Egg with a twist. Hold on a minute, you are probably thinking, surely you are not condoning the illegal hacking into a commercial game? Well in this case, yes I am. What's more, so are the developers of the game itself, Seattle based PopCap. You see the nerd concerned, one Bernie Peng aged 26 from New Jersey, hacked the Bejeweled game so that when his girlfriend hit a certain score instead of the …
