  1. The progress report as the comiler and linker build the project will probably be different. The size of the executable will probably be different too. The machine code instructions might/probably be different too, different compilers sometimes do things differently.
  2. It depends what programming language is used. I can compile C, C++, Smalltalk and Visual Basic Open Source projects but no others. http://www.opensource.org/ http://sourceforge.net/softwaremap/trove_list.php
  3. I assume I'm the problem and you're referring to the fact that I'm solving everyone's problems by leaving because I sometimes struggle comprehending something, which makes me a fool. Or when I do understand something and try to help someone I'm being smug. What is the point in having public forums if people aren't allowed to be foolish enough to ask questions?? If you want my opinion.. I'd be a bigger fool for not asking in the first place!!
  4. Nice articulate way of publicly debunking someones ideas.
  5. You just come bursting into a thread and make a one word post containing "What?" with no reference to what you're asking for clarification about so for a laugh I make a reply that makes about as much sense as your post did.. Now you come along and accuse me of being a fool. I suppose you're right, I suppose I am a fool but you're the guy that I'm talking about above. BTW would you do me a really big favour please, go and find a really big nasty bloke and ask him if he understands all this, when he says no call him a fool so he can kick the shit out of you for me.
  6. Forget about people observing things. Regardless of whether anyone can see an object or not it is still where it is in relation to everything else at any one given moment in time. If there's a tree falling in a forest right now and there's no one there to see or hear it, it's still falling to the floor right now. I fully understand that if you were on Venus that Mars will appear to be in a different place to us on Earth but that's only where it appears to be. What if we discovered how to create wormholes?? Say we could direct a wormhole instantaniously to any place on any planet, we wouldn't be interested in where it appears to be now we'd be interested in where it physically is right now when we open the wormhole.
  7. Have you ever tried self hypnosis?? I work nights and the daytime noises either physically increased or I just started noticing them a few months ago, I also suffer from tinnitus which got worse, leaving me thinking it was stress caused by my financial situation that's still not resolved. So I turned to self hypnosis and cured myself. I can now sleep for hours on end through the daytime and I can hardly hear my tinnitus. I put myself in a mild trance and keep telling my sub conscious "That noise is background noise, there's nothing I can do about it, it's totally out of my control so I might as well ignore it and get on with the task at hand." Think about when you were last at home or in a pub and you're involved in a deeply engrossing conversation with someone, don't notice what's being said on the TV or if you're in a pub you ignore the noise around you. It just becomes background noise that you ignore. And to get into that trance here's a very simple exercise you can all do. I'll assume there's some background noise in the room you're in right now, I've got the fans in my PC whirring away right now. Find a similar sound and listen to it for a while.. Now sit back, close your eyes and relax for a while, spend a minute or two thinking about a time when you were having an engrossing conversation with someone and there was a lot of noise around you but you ignored the noise and carried on... Think about the last great film you watched or some other meaningful experience, rerun your memories of all that. When you come to the end of the memory you should notice you weren't paying any attention to the noise you were listening to at the start. It isn't difficult once you realise just how easy it is because our brains are doing it all the time for us. The trick is to control when it does it for us. It won't work for everyone because there may be other underlying reasons like a traumatic event from your past and your sub conscious is increasing the background events but it should work for a lot of people.
  8. Nicely phrased... Since you're incapable of explaining something to me with that scenario, I'll do something clever and rephrase it then. At this very moment in time, right now (as I type this) you're where you are, I'm where I am, Mars is where it is, etc... It might not be relevent to where everything else is and that now is my now and not your now because when you read this everything will have moved but everything was still at the position and in the same state for everyone. You were still where you where and I was still where I was.
  9. So if you froze time for the entire universe NOW so everything stopped and went to visit everywhere/thing the position and states of those things will have changed, even though time for the entire universe was frozen??
