Multiple typed dynamic array

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

I wrote DS_Multilist.h. It’s an unordered list, stack, queue, and ordered list all in one. Since the interface is the same for all 4, it’s easy to change what type of data structure you are using to tweak performance. Relatively full featured, with a sort function and fast lookups into sorted lists.

DLink routers have terrible software

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Bought a DLink router.

Took me 2 hours to figure out how to connect to it. I had to change my static IP from 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.0.100. If the 3rd octet is not a 1 it won’t connect. Found this out indirectly through the manual, although it wasn’t stated explicitly.

Took me another 2 hours to figure out how to get on the internet. I was never able to get it to automatically find the DNS servers. I had to manually set the DNS server, from back when I had a static IP through the business account. A normal user would have never been able to do this.

I don’t know how they sell these things. I’m returning it tomorrow just on principle.
