When I had my first college lecture about abstract base classes, virtual functions, and method overloading.

Previously I was self-taught from screwing around with turbo pascal code I'd downloaded off the internet and had some gaping holes in my understanding as a result. I'd spent a summer in HS trying to write a game engine; I knew I wanted to be able to keep all my mobile sprites in a single array. I also knew I wanted to be able to abstract out things like how they moved instead of having a giant switch function. Not realizing the good folk as Borland had already created exactly what I needed I spent about a month going slowly insane(r), trying to reinvent the wheel by passing function pointers into a constructor. D'Oh! | :doh:
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
