I've been learning C++ for a while now and I've started my second project. My first project was a relatively simple tic tac toe game in the terminal.
But I'm getting a bit bored and have been dreaming of my next project. I was thinking a very simple text editor would solidify my handle on pointers and memory management. But whereas with a game that simply gets input and prints out a result, looping until quitting, I have no idea where to start with a text editor.
I think NCurses is best suited for my purposes, but after learning NCurses, I'm not sure what to do next.
Where should I start? Should I build a simple line editor like Ed or focus on building a ncurses verion next? What is a buffer and how do I use it? How should I store the data in the buffer.
Thanks in advance.
A console text editor will have you learn all sorts of pointless terminal bullshit instead of letting you learn relevant stuff.
If you're already good enough on OOP may as well just get some library and make a simple gui text editor at least.
Appreciate the advice. I'd like to first complete this before tackling on something with a GUI. Do you have any good project ideas? I've been thinking about making an IRC Client next.
I've been looking through the GNU Moe source code, but it's a bit difficult. I understand most of the code, but there's so many files and it's really difficult for me to get the full picture.
What motivation does Microsoft need to gut Windows and replace most of userland with a much more consistent, intuitive environment?
What they need to do is complete scrap NT and just use Linux or some other kernel at this point and keep around a few of their own libraries and userland like Android does. Or just scrap Windows and start over because it's a total fucking mess.
Good colleges for a major in Computer Science/Programming in Pennsylvania?
Spend the time you would be wasting on college developing something useful in the language and subfield you plan on occupying. Trust me, you'd be on a higher playing field then if you went to any college in your area, prestigious or not.
how many of you think adobe should give out the source code for flash now that they getting rid of it https://www.change.org/p/adobe-systems-make-flash-open-source-before-it-s-too-late?recruiter=704724662&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink&utm_campaign=share_petition
Open sores is such a vague term there are a few cases when -legally- nobody would benefit from it.
The petition is shit, who made is shit.
If they want to make anything good out of it, free software is the only way to go.
Why the heck are all the gpus sold out all the time?
What would an aerospace contractor need hacking tools for?
I just installed Arch Linux, good deal shit deal? Here's a screenfetch regardless. What's your opinion on Arch is it /g/ood?
Anybody want a soda or something? Cause I'm going up to the machine I thought maybe you know I'd get somebody something cause I've had only sweets and I think I'm gonna get something salty I thought maybe someone would uh want something.
Oh, uh I finished debugging the phones. Uh..you know I was going to so I did...and I thought maybe I should tell you that the systems going to be compiling for 18 to 20 minutes so some of the minor systems they might go on and off for a while but it's nothing to worry about it's just a simple thing...

Welcome to the botnet.
In a memo to President Trump, a group of former U.S. intelligence officers, including NSA specialists, cite new forensic studies to challenge the claim of the key Jan. 6 “assessment” that Russia “hacked” Democratic emails last year.
MEMORANDUM FOR: The President
FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)
SUBJECT: Was the “Russian Hack” an Inside Job?
Forensic studies of “Russian hacking” into Democratic National Committee computers last year reveal that on July 5, 2016, data was leaked (not hacked) by a person with physical access to DNC computers, and then doctored to incriminate Russia.
After examining metadata from the “Guccifer 2.0” July 5, 2016 intrusion into the DNC server, independent cyber investigators have concluded that an insider copied DNC data onto an external storage device, and that “telltale signs” implicating Russia were then inserted.
Key among the findings of the independent forensic investigations is the conclusion that the DNC data was copied onto a storage device at a speed that far exceeds an Internet capability for a remote hack. Of equal importance, the forensics show that the copying and doctoring were performed on the East coast of the U.S. Thus far, mainstream media have ignored the findings of these independent studies [see here and here].

I'm doing all of this with MSI Afterburner. Should I be too worried if I'm running this, lets say almost 24/7 ? My temperature is only 64 degrees, stable
Is it worth it to purchase a wired only router since I already have APs set up?
Or should I just get a wireless router since there are more options available?
In either case, what are some good options?
