    Exactly where it belongs, most likely.

    Ah, ha, ha, ha. Eddie Murphy laugh. Too bad I couldn't find a resume on
    you. Games, what the ****, in VB? Come on Timmy. Look behind you, my
    stuff is probably up your ***. Eee-heee.

    I'm flattered you took the time to research my work. Unfortunately, all the
    public stuff I have out there is strictly a hobby. My "bread-n-butter" is
    internal to the company for which I work.

    I don't have my resume out there because I'm quite comfortable (and nicely
    paid) at my present position. Rest assured that when I decide to move on,
    I'll let you know so you can look me up.

    And yeah, I *do* believe commercial-quality games can be developed with
    VB.NET, ya elitist C snob!

    Don't be. I am in between projects at this time and I have absolutely nothing
    to do but screw around and besides I do it for everyone. I love looking
    at the info you guys put out there publicly. It's pretty hilarious.

    Oh come on. You're doing VB, it can't be that much. Oh, you did mention
    break and butter. I once saw a VB programmer on the corner in downtown Portland
    with a sign - "Will code in VB for food - or work at Taco Bell, whichever
    pays more".

    >And yeah, I *do* believe commercial-quality games can be developed with

    Yes, *YOU* *DO* believe. Minesweeper was a pretty cool one. I did see a
    pretty good vb version of battleship too. Boy I'll take that over my flight
    sim anyday, ya crazy VB kook.

    Me, elitest? Oh you don't know me that well, do you? By the way I haven't
    attempted C in about ten years now. It is "C++ elitest" thank you.

    In between projects, eh? I guess there ain't a whole lot of work for
    washed-up, egotistical, abusive C++ programmers right now, huh? I almost
    wish I had that problem.

    Yeah, there seems to be a lot of people with those "Will do x for food"
    signs. Or maybe it's just an old bad joke.

    The game project I'm currently working on isn't a flight sim, but it does
    use DX extensively. Framerates aren't too bad, either, considering it's
    written in VB.NET. I'll drop you a note just before I make it public so
    you'll get the first chance at turning your nose up at it.

    And while we're splitting hairs, I'm a crazy VB.NET kook.

    Nope. Plenty to do. I'm a mover, shaker and I make things happen. Boss
    is out of town so I am brushing up on the piloting skills. Still gettin.......PAID
    though. You couldn't have that problem could you? Is it possible to have
    an ego working in VB?

    >Yeah, there seems to be a lot of people with those "Will do x for food"

    Not really where I live. I have to keep the butlers and maids away from
    my benz.

    Man you must really work for some idiots. I mean choosing VB(.NET) to do
    games? Wow, not many C-C++ developers in that part of the world?

    >I'll drop you a note just before I make it public so

    Too late!!!

    >And while we're splitting hairs, I'm a crazy VB.NET kook.

    Well, you're a kook anyway.

    Re: Hey, what the?

    This may seem a little off-the-wall, but did you ever consider moving to
    Spain? You don't happen to live in the Boston area, do you?

    You sound suspiciously like another socially inept C(++) snob I argue with
    on occasion.

    How does that go, "When in Spain do as the.." oops. Why Spain? And coincidentally,
    yo, I do.

    Why do you guys always throw out that crap about socially inept, snob, ego,
    asshole, jerk-off, etc about us C++ guys? Jealous? And I am not arguing,
    you just chose to be my fish today. I have a one fish limit a day and luckily
    you came along. Now my son won't go hungry tonight.

    Re: Hey, what the?

    Trust me, it ain't jealousy. How does that go, "If the shoe fits..."

    Anyway, the reason those colorful expressions come to mind when dealing with
    your ilk is because you C/C++ programmers live in your own little world
    where, if it ain't neatly wrapped up in curly braces or punctuated with
    semicolons, it ain't worth s**t. And that's just not the way the real world
    works. The funniest part of this whole conversation is that you even had to
    ask that question.

    Who's reeling whom in here?

    Oh, come on, you know C++ developers have bigger penises to.

    It's not? Hmm, Java(curly braces), C#(curly braces), Python(curly braces),
    face it man, you chose VB, it didn't choose you. If all you guys can ever
    come up with is curly braces, semi-colons and case sensitivity, you need
    to go back in your bathroom and finish milking your weasel. Geez, you guys
    cannot even stop arguing amongst yourselves with regards to the changes made
    to VB.NET. 000


    The funniest part of this whole conversation is that you even had to
    >ask that question.

    I don't ask the questions, I answer them.

    >Who's reeling whom in here?

    Better let the drag out, I gotta big one.

    Actually I would think they would have smaller and more efficent penises.

    Holy crap. I can't stop laughing. I guess you could equate that to a SDM
    asking for a project and your choices are MFC or VB. Hmmmm:

    MFC == Long and Hard!!!
    VB == Quick and lacking in functionality!!!
