Which search engine would you choose if you just saw their results? Google, Yahoo or Bing?

Blind Search is a very interesting site which lets you search in Google, Yahoo and Bing simultaneously, but with a particular quality: without showing who is the provider of each result list. So you must vote your preferred results before knowing!


They have published here the results of the first 8 weeks from the site’s opening (the article is from July). Keep looking at the home page for more current news.

Thanks to Fepe for the link!

Simple C++ List Class

Just as I published some days ago the Simple C++ String Class as a C++ learning exercise, now I am freeing a Simple C++ List Class.

The standard library has a list class. But, while learning, it’s a good idea to know how to develop your own list class.

That’s why I made the List class. It’s not intended for professional projects (for them, you should use the standard library’s list), but as help to learn C++.

template <class TYPE>
class List
	/* ... */

	//Construction and destruction
	List() { /* ... */ }
	~List() { /* ... */ }
	List(const List& rlList) { /* ... */ }
	//Assignment operator
	List& operator=(const List& rlList);

	int Length() { /* ... */ }
	bool Empty() { /* ... */ }

	//Element managing
	int Add(TYPE& rtData);
	TYPE* Elem(int nPos);
	bool Delete(int nPos);
	void DeleteAll();
	int Find(TYPE& rItem, int nStartAt = 0);

	TYPE& operator[](int nPos) { /* ... */ }	//Elem
	int operator<<(TYPE& rdData) { /* ... */ }	//Add

	void FreeList();
	void Init() { /* ... */ }

template <class TYPE>
std::ostream& operator<<(std::ostream& oStream, List<TYPE>& rlList);

How To Fold a T-Shirt (9 Techniques)

Sometimes I get surprised by the things you can find on Internet…

Technique 1

This is the original video that started with all the T-Shirt folding series: “How To Fold A T-Shirt In 2 Seconds”…

Watch the other videos… There are lots of techniques!

What happens when the CPU heatsink is removed?

This is a very good video I’ve seen some time ago. I think Fepe sent it to me. It’s from Tom’s Hardware Guide.

It shows what happens to different CPUs when you remove their heatsink.

Optical Illusion – Spinning Silhouette

This is a very interesting image I’ve received a lot of time ago in an e-mail. I’ve been searching a bit but couldn’t find the original creator.

The special thing about this picture is that, when you look at it for the first time, it will be spinning either clockwise or counter-clockwise, but if you keep focusing, you’ll watch it rotating to the oposite direction or even bouncing between sides (half circles), either looking front or back.

It’s a good excercise to be mastered.
