Computer Beeps When Moving or Clicking Mouse

I got to my computer and logged in. I go to move my mouse, and suddenly I hear a series of beeps. I stop what I’m doing and the beeps continue for a short period then halt. I click. There are 2 beeps. I move my mouse 1 unit. It beeps a couple times. I […]

C++ Event Emitter, Javascript Style

I had the brief idea to convert an IRC parsing library I wrote from Javascript to C++ for fun. Don’t ask me why. The library was originally written in C#. It was then converted to Javascript. I decided a third conversion wasn’t in the books but I wrote a neat little C++ EventEmitter that works […]

Create a LocalDb Named Pipe

I was unable to find this information easily, had to play around with some things myself to find it. I’m hoping by posting here, others will be able to find it easier than I did. If you want to create a named pipe for localdb, you can use the sqllocaldb.exe tool in command prompt. If […]

Is There Room for More Software Giants?

We have so many software companies out there already. Google, Microsoft, Adobe, Facebook, Apple, Yahoo, EA (and a few more). A few of those maintain a very heavy market share if not completely dominate their market. This brings me to my question. Is there room for more software giants? That saying “This room ain’t big […]

Are today’s tools making programmers lazy?

I’ve installed a few applications lately that looked all neat and what have you, but functionality seemed very limited. I accidently right clicked on the program, and the internet explorer context menu popped up.
