mac_h8r1's sig (split from a Back Porch thread)

From Visual Basic to GNU C, this is the place to talk programming.

Moderators: SecretSquirrel, just brew it!

Just getting off on a really geeky tangent here... regarding your sig:
mac_h8r1 wrote:mac_h8r1.postCount++;

Since the BBS probably has some sort of database backend, I think SQL would be more appropriate than C:
Code: Select all
update Users set PostCount = PostCount + 1 where UserName = 'mac_h8r1'

:D

Code: Select all
user(1689).postCount++;

Would be more likely, if it used C/Java, so it wouldn't need to search for my alias. This would do better as another thread :wink:
mac_h8r1.postCount++;

As a mod, I know there's that "Split thread" option. In theory, one could split the past few posts off into their own thread, rename it "mac_h8r1's siggy" and put it in the Developer's Den, hint, hint :wink:

How does this come under the Developer's Den? Are we then discussing the BBS source code?

Yeah, if it was me, I would've probably just left it where it was. Or if anything, moved it to the Back Porch. :wink:

But since we're here now, how many of you do database (SQL) stuff? I've generally been more of a C/C++ guy for most of my career, but in the past few years have gotten more into SQL database work. Not really by choice... it just seems like there's more demand for it these days, and I'm a mercenary -- I'll go wherever the money is! :D

Then I'd suggest you start to learn how to program in Java...

Yeah, I've been meaning to learn Java and C# (and Perl, and Python, and PHP, and...) :wink:

We use SQL with a little VB here, but then again we're kind of **** up. No Java programmers and no C++, C, or C#.

Hey VB is a pretty decent language. I've done a ton with it. I've also spend the last weekend picking up Python since I'm still job hunting :-? Never hurts to expand ones skills. I've used a decent amount of SQL over the years as well. Want to set up a mySQL server here for more practice using it with Windows clients with ODBC and such :)

Python is awesome, but not enough people use it.
