Sounds like you literally have the crappiest compiler ever.
....I thought we made the ignoring clear in the last thread actually.

So I hope life is going well Hex,

I thought I'd give you an update considering I'm not here that often anymore. 
I have my items coming in the mail, solder paste and such.  Once I get them, i'm gonna go get a skillet for skillet reflow.
At that point I may or may not have enough time to work with it until classes start back up again (funny how I'm more busy during my "break" instead of the school semester).
I have 2 Winterm classes, a website, a game, 2 jobs, and my first product to work on so its difficult.

If I get anything at all going, I'll let you know.

Hi funky m8!

Happy New Year and all that.  :smiley-mr-green:

It'll be great to see what you produce when you finally get back to Uni and have some time on your hands.... :smiley-mr-green: :smiley-mr-green: :smiley-mr-green: :smiley-mr-green:

...ain't it just the truth...

Can't wait to see the outcome of the reflow attempt...I might have a go with the 'toaster' method myself although I can pretty well hand solder any chip with legs, there are some chips that are only available in TFN packages and that's where the reflow would come in handy.

If I ever win the lottery, I'll get a proper station and pick and place machine... :smiley-mr-green:

Keep me informed, especially software wise.

And I can't remember that I said that it won't include header files.

Even I remember that, back early in the other thread that we thought had been left behind.

Honestly binarygod I'd put money on there being no C compiler in this universe that doesn't handle #define, #include and _, it just can't happen.

Show us a 10 line program with an underscore and the resultant error message and we may believe you, until then as far as I can see you're just taking the piss.

Thanks, I totally forgot and wondered what all the noise was a couple of nights ago, must have been fireworks. So apart from being last_year +1, what year is it anyway?

I know what you mean m8...I tend to be unimpressed by all the 'holiday' rubbish as well....

I saw that lot in the notification email and thought it was for real from binaygod's compiler :)

Anyway now I see your problem, no ; after the this_year assignment.

I can't wait for the Xmas/NY BS to be over with so I can buy a satellite dish, but then when I worked I loved the time off of course, I'm just in grumpy old(ish) man mode.

I just realised you're from Southport, is that the Southport sort of half way up on the west coast? If so my best friend's wife's brother lives there.

Yep..that's the one... 8)

I'm not a native though...born in Macclesfield, dragged up in Manchester, 8 years as Army Radio & Electronics Tech moving around a bit, 20+ years near Lands End, Cornwall, then back to Germany, then Hastings, now Southport and thinking of moving back to Cornwall now I've retired.

Not done the whole deal like you old chap...too f%@!ng cold in N. Europe but I've done a bit of nomadding myself and I'm more salt and pepper than gray ( :smiley-mr-green:) but I think we have quite a few things in common...

Sounds like it.

I'm probably still more pepper than salt but I figured I'd think ahead with my forum name :)

YESSSS!! A real question.  (at least from my point of view)
Binary, I can research a little bit tonight when I'm done with my classes if they end as planned.  For me, I don't mean to hate, I just don't like babysitting another persons project.  I've planned my life on that notion.  I just can't stand it, its not how I roll.

But this is also a chance for me to learn something too.

I'll see if I can find something when I get a chance
