I don't think this is as random as people seem to think it is
If you are using C++ as such a high level language as Java/C#, you may as well use them because you threw away some of the most useful/valuable parts. Also, Exceptions are EXCEPTIONAL and should be treated as such... only expected to be thrown when something exceptional happens, not as a means of flow control.
If you want a "reliable" smart phone that doesn't need reset or suffer stupid ass software failures, get one of those $50 Samsung android smart phones. They are pretty reliable because they can't do much to begin with.
If you want a top of the line, super-newest-version, can-serve-as-my-PC smart phone, you are going to have issues, just like every other computer doing complicated tasks does.
People who bitch about Windows ME don't even know why. The real complainers of the day didn't like the fact that there was no "Shutdown to DOS" option, but that was about it (and easy relatively easy to solve). Else, it was better than Win98 in every way. The rare people who tout "stability issues" were running cheap PCs with Cyrix processors and toilet paper RAM.
This is the same general reason people percieved Vista being "bad". It was installed on shit machines and it ran like shit on them. That, and people were still couldn't be bothered to treat their local user account as a non-admin, so UAC was "stupid".
Like I stated above, having an office job and not exercising, one would only need ~1300 calories for equilibrium. Eating under that, let alone 300-500 calories less than that to start shedding fat is not only HARD, it may be damn well impossible for some people
The problem isn't so much "too many calories" consumed, but that the sedimentary lifestyle people are accustomed doesn't require even close to the 2000 calorie "standard diet". If you drive to work, sit behind a desk all day, go home and even do mundane, unimpactful chores, like vacuuming and wiping things down, and average person would be lucky to need maybe 1200-1300 calories as their TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure). Even drinking nothing but water, and consuming mostly calorie empty foods like lettuce/salad, you still need your macronutrients, which when adding carbs and fat now will take you to your quite low TDEE with very little food/effort.
2. If you do go for C++, make sure to start learning on C++11 or C++14. C++11 significantly changes quite a lot about the language, and if you start with older C++ books, you'll have to unlearn a lot of stuff if you want to develop modern C++. C++14 has mostly just minor fixes to C++11.
Absolutely. I love these games, but the instruments are complete shit. I have never once even had a drum set for these games that could handle the input fast/reliable enough for the hardcore levels. The buttons on the guitars are so far apart as if they were made to be used by Sasquatch.
