Submission + - Non-religious groups organize whiparound for Haiti ( 1

robindch writes: Spurred by the horrific suffering in Haiti, the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science (RDFRS) has joined forces with many other non-religious, atheist, skeptic, freethought and similar groups, to collect donations to non-religiously-aligned relief organizations, namely the Doctors Without Borders (Médecins sans Frontières) and the International Red Cross. 100% of the donation will be go to these charities, since Dawkins will personally donate a sum to cover the cost of the Paypal transaction fees (capped at $10,000), meaning that more of your money will reach the people in need. When donating via Non-Believers Giving Aid, you are helping to counter the myth that only the religious care about their fellow-humans.

Comment Re:Anyone still using Visual Studio 6? (Score 1) 236

Yep, still using VC6 ten years and half a million lines of C++ later. Don't want to, but heavens above, it's a productive, fast and rock-solid environment. I've installed the later compilers and got my gear up and running. Kind of. But the later compilers feel flaky, jerky and brittle. And none of them have ClassWizard, which which you can drive with the keyboard. Fast.

I'll install VC2010 and who knows, perhaps I'll switch. I'd like to, but MS, please make it easy!
