thecoolone19i will be doing this as a personal project
peercesaid application will need a cross-platform installer... installing and creating a database on a Windows box is a lot different than doing it on a Linux box.
oh, and installers that work on various linux distributions are fun.
thecoolone19ok i think for present i will give windows a prefernce since most my friends who im creating the tool for use windows only :(
peerceas debian puts stuff in a different place than redhat/centos... different fedora/ubuntu/etc flavors have different glibc etc versions, etc etc. major ugh.
thecoolone19ohh i see. wasnt linux to make life easier ??? lol
peercejava is teh closest thing to cross platform, and even then you'll need to include the javaruntime for various platforms in case the user doesn't have a current one already installed.
thecoolone19ok if im aiming only for windows will C# be a wise selection ?
jennamc#.net is probably your best option
peercepick up JDK 1.5, with netbeans from java.sun.com, and do the GUI part of your app with AWT... netbeans now has a dialog/forms editor for AWT that works quite well.
thecoolone19cool. will try it with that
peerceC# is an abomination.
jennamin your opinion :)
peerceyou'll spent the next 28 weeks learning bizzaro microsoft class object methods
jennamWasn't that long for me!
peerceand by the time you're done, they'll ahve released a completely new framework what will be all different.
thecoolone19well i already did a webapp with c#/asp.net so im more comfortable with that rather than java since i just know basic java programs and not awt or sockets
peercewell, this app doesn't need any networking, does it?
thecoolone19no
peerceasp.net has nothing to do with windows gdi+ desktop GUI stuff.
thecoolone19but im just saying to imply how limited my java skills are
peercewell, this is sure drifting offtopic for #centos. where's orc_orc when we need him? :D
thecoolone19oh sorry guys
;)
seems like there are no windows channel on freenode
anyways thanks a lot for all your inputs.
and regarding the space issue i will use the vmtools shrink tool and see how it goes
guys why doesnt xchat show all the channels when i type /list ??
jennam-there used to be a win window
er channel
it should show all the ones that havent got +p or +s set
channel #windows does windows
thecoolone19but on my windows with mirc i get all channels when i type /list
jennamperhaps xchat limits the number you receive
there are over 3000 channels
thecoolone19im getting only 45-75 channels
any website where i can find irc channels ?
jennamWouldnt know
rado_wow...how much irc do you need??
thecoolone19i use irc for all my technical help that i need. php, drupal, mysql, apache, centos etc etc :P
