A case against syntax highlighting

Although I'm not sure if highlighting keywords/constants actually improves your efficiency of coding/debugging, I'm sure that syntax highlighting does help searching. For a significant amount of time during coding, our eyes are searching stuff. Where's that class/method/function/variable? By highlighting them, we can quickly locate the things we're looking for, which reduces a lot of frustration. You don't necessarily have to use colors for highlighting (though it's the easiest to implement). You could use bigger fonts, for example. This is what people (including you) are actually doing when they put headlines into an article. It just makes easy to navigate within the document. Of course, you can use a search function in your editor, but searching strings can be quite disorientating because you have to jump around the code and you'll certainly lost the sense of contexts. But it was an interesting article anyway. Thanks.

Better cable management is what you need for a room in which you have aimed for high style. The cheap ugly projector "shelf" with exposed wires is pretty awful to look at. Also, a better way to hide your lamps power chord would be; to have a white chord, and maybe keep it tight so it does not hang down. Put a weight on the end so, as you push the lamp over, the chord stays tight and disappears with it, and when you pull it, the chord comes with it and stays tight. Experiment with different weighs and ways to keep friction do it doesn't pull the lamp back towards the wall.

I am not an interior designer, but I like the room, just seems kind of amateur the way you constructed those pieces of which I highlighted.

Just my.02, take it for what it's worth.

i'm confused so do you actually compose your own chiptunes from scratch or just the hardware? i'm no techy but the music is great.

Should be even easier with the XMEGA which has multiple SPI channels + DMA.

No, because a passacaglia has a repeating sequence of notes in some voice (usually the bass), to which the other voices add variation. Fratres has a strictly repetitive high-level form, but the actual note sequences change from one cycle to the next, so it doesn't fit the definition of a passacaglia.

Thanks! Yes, I compose the music as well.

True, but "easier" was not my intention. =)

INPUT AND OUTPUT STRING ASSEMBLY FOR NASM 32 BIT FOR LINUX ?

HOW TO?

man 3 fgets

(or use read(2) if you don't want to link with libc)
