I would have liked to answer yes to questions 2-6 (it keeps me entertained on trips, it is my only gaming system, I am hoping for more file updates, I do feel like using it...etc.).

I know what you mean. It only keeps you amused on trips if there's something amusing to use it on. Keep those programs coming! Oh, yeah, and programming on it is fun, too.

Nobody needs to check the one about batteries because you can always buy rechargable ones. It will cost you a lot to start, but mine have already paid for not only themselves, but the charger too.

How do you lose them? They should only be in two places: In your calculator or on the charger. Buy 8 batteries and a 4 battery charger, and when your calc is low, just swap 'em out. Unless you somehow unplug and lose the whole charger, there's no way you could lose the batteries....

Batteries

I second that. I use rechargeable batteries in almost everything. There are only a few devices (such as clocks, etc.) where the drain is so low that the discharge rate of rechargable batteries makes them less economical than disposable batteries that can last almost their full shelf life.

I voted "Yes, I'm hoping that there are going to be lots of file updates during the summer!".... And I hope that a lot of those updates will be from myself. ;)

Not for me. I'm going to be too busy programming in Java and taking screenshots. I suppose screenshotting is updating files...

I'll be programming Java as well...I love Java, but I wish it was just a bit faster on my computer...I'm saving up for a laptop though...I'm going to get a "top-of-the-line" one just for programming. ;) I'm excited

i... hate... java. Not to start a flamewar or anything, but what's with all the modules? Can't Java just be normal like everything else? And on a side note, I didn't think you needed a state-of-the art PC to program. Other than loading up those behemoth compilers and script IDEs, as well as waiting for that infinitely slow javac, you really don't need much power. I guess memory might be an issue though.

okay, it's not JUST for programming...a guy can like computer games too, can't he? Also, I agree with some of the stupidities of Java. One thing I was thinking about last night before I drifted to sleep was the thought of Java *without* the "half-compilation" crap that makes it so slow. That would be cool. If you could FULLY compile a java applet/application for a particular computer...how great would that be?

I was wondering the same thing; could you compile java to a stand-alone EXE? (no relying on JVM and stuff)
It would run a LOT faster like this. And, I did a quick google search on the internet, and apparently, this can be done, but I didn't really look into it.
Was this the same thing you were thinking about?

LOL, I don't like Java either. I'm not a fan of the OOP stuff. It can be handy in certain instances, but I'm much more used to "typical" (non-OOP?) programming.

AP Computer Science A doesn't go over that much... especailly since I was the only A-student in the class. Everybody else was failing, so we didn't get anywhere. So... that could be why I don't like java; because I don't know as much about it as I should.

I agree. In general I hate OOP programming because it is much harder to read then something simple like C. I'm also not used to the bloated code produced by small programs.

However, there are some features of C++, which I would much rather not program without. In particular I love std::string and I will often write my own classes, but I never program in true (ly ridiculous) OOP style (I don't put everything in a class).

Off-topic: Anyone here, besides me, hate this "StickyKeys" popup from Windows?

yeah, it kept happening to me while using vti, but you can turn it off, it is just more difficult than it should be to do that...

My school's computers make a realy load noise when you do that even if you have the volume turned down. It is pretty annoying. Windows 98 doesn't do it though or maybe I just have it turned off...

I prefer PC's because you can load them up with alot more crap.

Lol my computer has _WAY_ too much crap on it already.

Total Size----Free Space
Local Disk (C:) 25.5 GB 1.17GB
Development (D:) 11.7 GB 1.86GB

(Taken directly from "My Computer")

It has never been defragmented every since I got it 1.5 years ago. I might as well go clear some stuff out now...
