    Anyone have any good tips for writing code in C(Not C++) to read and write a human-readable config file? I've been trying some different methods, but they all seem very crude. Any advice?

    I've been trying for a while to get a simple DirectDraw program written in C to compile under MSVC++ 6.0. It refuses to compile this line: DirectDrawCreateEx(NULL, &lpDD, IID_IDirectDraw7, NULL); It gives me the following errors: directdraw.c(5) : error C2115: 'function' : incompatible...

    USB Booting is a pain.

    Has anyone ever had a problem booting their computer and tried everything imaginable only to find out it was trying to boot from a USB device? I couldn't get mine to start, so I took out all my cards, reset the CMOS settings, unplugged all the electrical stuff. Still couldn't get it to boot...

    Want a new CPU and mainboard

    I've been considering buying a new CPU and mainboard. In the past I've leaned towards AMD's processors, but it seems recently Intel has been overtaking them. So, I want to know which company I should go with, which processor, and which mainboard would support it well.

    Replacing Notebook DC Connector

    Does anyone have experience with this? I am referring not to the power supply, but the connector inside the notebook itself. Does each notebook require a special connector? I imagine it would have to be soldered in. I have very little experience with soldering. Is it difficult to do?

    Windows XP NTFS CHKDSK problem

    I've been wanting to defragment my system partition, so I got Diskeeper. It was recommended that I run CHKDSK first, so I did. It finished and I began defragmenting. I didn't have too much free space at that time so it didn't make it too far. Afterwards, I tried running Diskeeper's boot time...

    Replacement for credit/debit card payment?

    Is there a method of payment that can be used anywhere a credit/debit card is used online? It's kind of annoying that just about anything you try to buy online requires a credit card. Alot of places won't accept PayPal.

    Recording audio output

    For a program I'm using, I need to be able to record the sound my notebook is outputting. To my knowledge, you would do this by selecting the recording input device as "Wave" The thing is "Wave" does not appear in the list. Any ideas why?

    DC Wireless backup?

    Assuming anyone deciphers the protocol of the DS, does anyone think it would be possible to backup games to a computer through a wireless connection? Like possibly having the computer simulate the functions of the receiving DS, and write a permanent copy?
