Hi everyone, sorry about my english. Im having a problem and i don't know how to fix it. I have a plugin-based application that i'm developing. Every plugin has a reference to a dll that has different static classes with functions. When i run the application with all the dlls (plugins and their references) in the same directory, the application works fine. But the problem comes when i change the application's path, leaving the dlls in other path. When i run the application, the plugin dll thrown an exception saying that the "functions dll" could not be found, but the …

The board game scrabble works by assigning points to wooden tiles arranged in cells on a board. It's described here:[url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrabble[/url]. We'll simplify this considerably, and consider the following question. We begin with the letter-scoring scheme from Scrabble: a = 1, b = 3, c = 3, d = 2, ..., z = 10. Given a text file - a novel for example, what is the highest-(or a highest-) scoring line in the the file? In keeping with the Scrabble style, we'll add double and triple letter scores: any letter that falls at a line (String) position that's evenly divisible by …

I can't say I have ever heard of pussy power being used as a driver for advanced chip technology development, but that's precisely what researchers at IBM are claiming. A team of boffins at IBM have been speaking about how they have arrived at something of a milestone breakthrough: a supercomputer that simulates a brain in near real time and has more cerebral cortex capacity than a cat. The cognitive computing team which is headed up by IBM Research managed to achieve what it says are "significant advances in large-scale cortical simulation" as well as "a new algorithm that synthesizes …

I'm thinking of something to create to improve computer's classic software, maybe a higher level programming language than the actual, or a smarter OS, or maybe make expert systems improve with AI, etc ... On the other hand, Computers nowadays can be very helpful, but also can be used to steel information, terrorism, and other crimes. If we do make better computers, they will eventually fall in the wrong hands, and be a more efficient tool for bad. How do you think we can prevent it ? I believe there might be a way to prevent it, but not by …

First Google expressed an interest in the [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/20370/53/"]web browser client[/URL] market, and then the [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/26281/53/"]operating system market[/URL] and now it has launched its own open source systems programming language.

According to Google a typical build takes but a fraction of a second while the resulting programs run almost as quickly as comparable C or C++ code. Go has, we are told, pointers but no pointer arithmetic (for random access Google says use slices which know their limits) and promotes writing systems and servers as …

I've made pong and was wondering how I could embed it (it was made in java). I'm new to java so if you could explain it, that would be helpful, but if you can't that's ok. Thanks in advance :icon_mrgreen:.

I know this forum isn't for databases but I couldn't find a proper one so i post here. (my original post is at forums.mysql.com, but not much seems to be happening there) can MySQL server be started as a globally accessible server by using libmysqld? For example, can a application start the server using 'localhost' or '127.0.0.1' and if so, can the databases be accessed using another program - say PHP? thanks.

Hi, I've been working on this project I'm doing and its killing me because I can't figure why my array\formula's don't want to get along. Here is the general overview of what the project requires: Here the project: Operation • The user enters a score and clicks the Add button or presses the Enter key. • The application calculates and displays the score total, score count, and average score. • If the user clicks the Display scores button, the application sorts the scores and displays them in a message box. • If the user clicks the Clear scores button, the …

I'm a newbie in programming. I spent few hours yesterday and today working on a small AJAX page with multiple combo boxes that are populated from the database. I use IE6 99% of the time and I utilize the excellent . I almost done with the page (I’m pretty proud of it too) so I decided to show it to my work buddy. On both IE8 and opera, my beautiful double combo boxes just failed miserably. A part of what I was doing was to populate a double combo box with dynamic data from the database. I created an empty …

A group of over 30 organizations including the Department of Homeland Security, Microsoft, and Symantec collaborated recently on a security project designed to identify the [URL="http://www.sans.org/top25errors//?cat=top25"]top 25 coding errors[/URL] programmers make when building Web sites. Since many of the mistakes can leave sites vulnerable to to cyber crime, it's a good idea to peruse the list and make sure you don't have any security gaps in your systems. In fact, just two of the 25 errors account for more than 1.5 million security breaches last year. Some of the errors the group identified include: Improper Resource Shutdown or Release (CEW-404), …

There is an old saying that goes something like this: If you put 1,000 monkeys in a room with 1,000 typewriters (the things people used before computers), they would come up with the works of Shakespeare. Could the same be true of a great Desktop OS? No, but give me 1,000 well-paid developers and I'll give you a great Desktop OS. My first two posts were responses to news articles concerning the fate of Desktop Linux. I think that Linux is ready for the Desktop in spite of the opinions of Novell and RedHat. Unfortunately, corporations want guarantees, support, and …

Many people complain that Java is far too slow to use in most applications that are traditionally written with C/C++. Well, this is probably never going to change unless Java allows itself to be completely compiled instead of bytecode, but IBM is trying to make the state that Java's in better. Now, [URL="https://www14.software.ibm.com/iwm/web/cc/earlyprograms/ibm/java6/?ca=dgr-lnxw01IBM-SDK-Java-v6"]IBM has released a Java 6 SDK[/URL] that has increased performance over Sun's Java SDK. It's amazing what open source can work. Although the idea of it making money seems ridiculous, just look at some of the more-successful applications created with this. Mozilla Firefox for example, has brought …

If you always thought that OpenStep, Cocoa's base, was limited to Mac OS X, you're wrong. A project called [URL="http://www.gnustep.org"]GNUstep[/URL] is dedicated to creating an open-source implementation of the reusable objects that Cocoa uses. Cocoa, which is the framework that the vast majority of Mac OS X software developers use to create application user interfaces. It uses NextStep's framework to create reusable objects using objective C, which is not dissimilar to C# or Java. Carbon is another application framework that can be used to create Mac OS X interfaces, but the difference is that Carbon is more C-based, using a …

I was reading the [URL="http://google-code-updates.blogspot.com"]Google Code Blog [/URL]and noticed that Google software engineer Matthias Zenger happened to announce the availability of the updated Google Base Data API last week. This lets you develop applications that can dynamically interact with Google Base, obviously. Perhaps a little less obviously it also allows you to query other users' published content, making domain-specific search mashups a possibility. The API is ReST-full and based on the GData protocol, which combines XML-based syndication formats with feed-publishing, using a mix of Atom and RSS. What excites me even more, although I admit to being fairly easily pleased, …

More bad news from the Las Vegas Black Hat Convention, this time for the blogging community. Most RSS reader software is vulnerable to malicious JavaScript insertion attacks, and web based readers are not immune either. With typical JavaScript based attacks targeting passwords and personal data, it is something that should be taken seriously, Yet when I did a quick pop quiz amongst family and friends, not a single one (those in the IT security business apart) was aware that such software was a potential risk. The fact that this kind of attack can be easily launched from even a trusted …

So many of us C forum old timers have answered the same basic questions so many times that even our occasional attempts to be humorous or creative with them seem to get dull. You'd think that by the end of week one that a programmer new to C would have been taught how to read a string and a number from user input. Instead I see piles of questions on linked list or binary search tree implementations, and the programmer is still hampered by faulty input handling, the use of nonstandard functions, and all too often not even knowing how …

Most ASP.NET Developers have no previous web development experience. Is that a true or false statement? I suspect it's true, but found no statistics to back it up. However, judging from posts in several technical forum sites, one certainly gets that impression. "Halt App Until JavaScript Confirm Dialog Clicked". "JavaScript in code-behind problem". "How to fire ASP.NET code from JavaScript function". "Confirm delete". These are all titles of recent questions posted in various .NET forums. Also, I've seen a resurgence of questions that web developers either solved, or came to grips with, many years ago. For example, I've seen several …

A group of high school students from Kutztown, PA who were charged earlier this month with felony computer trespassing and computer theft have been offered a deal to drop charges. They have agreed to do 15 hours of community service, write letters of apology, and attend a class on personal responsibility. The students had each been given an Apple iBook to use during the school year. When they found the administrator password written on the bottom of the laptops, they used it to install iChat among other contraband programs. After the school changed the password the students figured out the …
