Hello daniweb community. I'm hoping to start a Computer Science Bsc next year, and I'm in an odd situation. For reasons I'd rather not explain (it's not a conflict or anything, just some weird circumstances), I'm living at home, with my two sisters and their respective boyfriends. I don't pay rent right now, but I'll start (it won't be much, just upkeep) as soon as I get a part time job. One of my sisters and her boyfriend may move out soon, too. I've heard a lot about the 'experience' of uni acommadation., but it costs a lot, and most …

I have always thought I wanted to study computer science for many reaons even though I did not know much about it or about the many other majors taht are availlable. I took AP in computer science and I liked it for the first 6 weeks or so untill I noticed that I did not like studying it at all. I just did not like opening my AP CS book and preferred to study Calculus, English or any other subject instead. I am now taking a founndation year in the UK and the only computer class that I am taking …

According to the network security team at Oxford University Computing Services ([OxCERT](http://blogs.oucs.ox.ac.uk/oxcert/)) with the title of 'Google Blocks' the world famous seat of learning has decided to put a block, albeit a temporary one, on the use of Google Docs. Robin Stevens from the network security team at Oxford says that the "extreme action" was felt necessary in order to protect "the majority of University users". ![dweb-oxford](/attachments/small/0/dweb-oxford.jpg "align-right") While admitting that Google Docs is a "perfectly legitimate site" and one which is "widely used by staff and students as part of their work and personal lives" Stevens explains that it …

Hello All, I am considering working on an additional degree in computer science from Regis University. The program is an ABET accredited program. It looks good on paper but I was wondering if anyone had any experience or opinions on the program. Thanks!

On the same day that [URL="http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-11225197"]UK Business Secretary, Vince Cable, has been explaining that Government sees "no justification for taxpayers' money being used to support research which is neither commercially useful nor theoretically outstanding"[/URL] and that universities will be expected to "do more for less" an event has been showcasing the latest near-market products and technologies that have evolved from just such research. [youtube]5yMEYXweFjc[/youtube] The 'Meerkats and Avatars' event held at the Hauser Forum and organized by St John's Innovation Centre, took place today and served as a great reminder that commercially viable science and technology innovation is most certainly …

Alright last year I gave some really really really hard exams in my country Greece.I suceeded. I got into the university at the Department of Mechanical Engineering.But, things are not as I expected them.I want to do programming.More programming than mechatronics or plain fortran 90/95 we do at university. I want to learn programming.All i have done up to know is a simpler version of pascal, fortran ,which I do know well and I like …

Here's my code: bigInt.cpp [CODE]/ // bigInt.cpp #include "bigInt.h" bigInt::bigInt() { int i; for(i = 0; i < SIZE; i++) //Sets all the values of digits to 0. digits[i] = 0; sign = true; numDigits = 1; error1 = true; overflowFlag = false; } bigInt::bigInt(const char temp []) { int i; int tempSize = strlen(temp); numDigits = 1; error1 = true; sign = true; if(tempSize > 30) error1 = false; if(temp[0] == '-') { //If there's a negative symbol set the sign to false sign = false; if(tempSize > 31) //Add an extra space so the - doesn't count error1 …

Howdy! I've searched the forums and Google for ideas but all the information/advice I found was either not helpful or inaccurate. So, perhaps someone here can help point me in the right direction. I'm heading off to University next year but, before I do that, I'd like to study some of the math subjects I will encounter beforehand, e.g. discrete mathematics and set theory. I have no trouble learning and always give my best effort in everything I do. However, my current understanding of mathematics remains at an introductory-intermediate level of Algebra (no Calc or Trig, as is the case …

So basically i've been thinking really about the different programming languages as i have been looking at computer science courses at university. A lot of the courses use java as their main programming language. It got me thinking, is Java the future of programming and if so why? I am aware that it can be a slow programming language which is why some programmers choose not to use it, so why are so many computer science courses (who are training the IT professionals of tomorrow) teaching it? All comments welcome. Just trying to get an idea of peoples views towards …

Hello Everyone! My name is Steven. I am a Senior level Software Engineering major at Mississippi State. I've been fixing IT-ish problems since I was... 10, primarily in windows, so yeah! Needless to say, I'm decently knowledgeable when it comes to fixing computers, but every now and then, something I haven't encountered yet pops up, like my laptop freezing up [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/networking/threads/357320"]http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/networking/threads/357320[/URL], though in about an hour, I may find out if my problem is solved or not. Anyway, I'm here to help, as well as be helped, so together, let's learn something while helping as many people as we can!

The University of Central Florida is currently knee deep in $434,000 of federal tax money programming a video game for teenage girls which acclimates them to the pressures of sexual advances in social environments. Working with UCF’s Institute for Stimulation and Training, Dr. Anne Norris, statistician and methodologist for the College of Nursing’s Office of Research, hopes to implement her groundbreaking software into local middle schools as an aid in preventing teen pregnancies and encouraging abstinence amongst pubescent young adults.

Hello all, I am taking a course in C++ and in Ada. Our professor has given us the choice to be tested in language profficiency in either C++ or Ada. The test format will be of simpler programming problems and more geared towards shortanswer concepts. I was wondering if anyone had a good introductory C++ or Ada tutorial that they highly recommend. (I have already googled some, but find they are either far to advanced or far too simple) Also, do you have any practice tests/exams that I could have? Thanks in advance!

Surprisingly, the answer could well be yes. At least if a bunch of computer science researchers at [URL="http://www.dur.ac.uk/computer.science/"]Durham University[/URL] have anything to do with it. The group have taken the 3D game engine that powers the immersive Half Life 2 game and used it to develop a realistic virtual simulation of the university computer science department. More to the point, they have created a realistic fire drill simulator which might just help save a life or two. The idea being that the 'game' can be used to determine how real people behave when confronted by a virtual fire within a …
