    Chrome Fades as Users Return to IE, Firefox

    Since we use Google Apps at work I use it mail, calendar and apps. The JavaScript engine is very fast. For web development, there is still nothing that comes close to FF, although I'd put Crome in second place it does have a built in JavaScript debugger and DOM viewer. Did I mention the...

    I cannot for the life of me figure this out....

    A few things, in C++ a "string" is simply an array of char's. So when you pass a array into the strcmp function you need to refer to the array not the first element (the char). Second NEVER use strcmp always use strncmp as this is much safer and will prevent buffer overuns. It's a good idea...

    Database for elementary school recommendations

    For somebody who doesn't know much about databases and is only going to be used by one or two users then access would be fine. For more I'd recomend MySQL although that would require somebody with suitable IT skills to setup and create an interface.

    C++ Question (Might be simple)

    All decimal numbers are floating point, ie the number is stored with a number to a set acuracy and then scaled. If you want to store the exact number you will need to store it as a string or just output the results as you calculate it.

    little help with arrays?

    Just because there is a string class doesn't mean you have to use it. C++ is just an extension of C so anything from C will generally work in C++. In some cases using a string class is more of a hindrance than actually useful.
