I'm just trying to get this one excited about taking over lawnmowing duties.

But that likely requires you to be able to change the bios settings to enable USB boot, which might be password protected.
Yeah thats not possible unfortunately.

Correct, my first course in c++ so i'm still a newbie.
I downloaded code:blocks portable yesterday. So far i like it. runs and saves everything on the flash drive which is perfect. I gotta try it on the school computers. I looked for eclipse but couldnt find the portable version.





Also gz on the new baby.

That is true of nearly every other baby besides your own.

Smart/cute babies are awesome. I say this because some are not smart (even for their age), not cute, and just generally annoying.
My son is 3 and I can't imagine life without him. Shockingly smart, cute, and like y8s said even when he's a pain in the rear it doesn't bother me.

I feel really sorry for people that dislike/not want children, I used to be one of those people. Now I can't imagine what I woulda missed out on, I woulda regretted it for the rest of my life if we didn't have him.

Emacs is an amazingly powerful tool with a steep learning curve. It's an editor with a lisp interpreter buried inside of it, which makes it very extensible and customizable, essentially anything about it can be changed to suit your needs. For many years it had a reputation for being big and bloated (the joke was that it stood for "Eight Megabytes And Constantly Swapping"), but Moore's Law has swept all of that away, compared to a web browser it's tiny.

I think it's better than Eclipse, but that's at least partly because I started using it before Eclipse existed.

That's because I've never heard a parent say, "You know he's below-average looking, kinda dumb, and misbhaves constantly."

Maybe, but it's real easy to tell which parents are secretly thinking about it, and some even say it outright these days.

I want mine to be ahead of the cuve. He's almost 3 now, speaks 2 languages, counts to 20 in 2 languages, was potty trained by 2yo, knows a few songs (lyrics and melody, completely) and constantly memorizing poems and stuff like that. We will be homeschooling him so that we can start his education early and stay ahead of the curve, stuff like that. He will be starting to learn to play the drums and guitar soon too.

I'll shut up about him now but just saying I'm super proud of him, and would be impressed with him even if he wasn't my kid.

Kids are great

I guess I may find out. Current girlfriend has told me she wants to me to pump a baby in her.

I told her I was open to the idea, but she has to be willing to give up her house/20 acres by the lake so the kid could be in a good school district. Not a backwater, hillbilly one like her current house sits in (town of 1100 people almost an hour away from a "good" district).

I have a difficult enough time taking care if two knucklehead cats. There is no way I should be responsible for a baby.

Were I having more kids, we would be living out in the woods and home schooling.

IMO there is a fine line between keeping him ahead of the curve and turning him into a sheltered weirdo (no offense).

I'm sure you have a lot planned, just saying that public school and public interactions can do a lot of good.

I think a good support system can overcome a lot of faults of the school system, my fiance went to a really shitty redneck high school, but her parents were very supportive and she worked hard to get where she is.

My goal is to find a happy medium. Room to roam and play and be in the country, but not hillbilly central.

Not really economically feasible. I do OK and have plenty of money left over every month, but I have cheap rent and no one else to take care of. If I was paying her mortgage, both car payments, etc, it would get real tight real quick. I don't like that idea at all.

None taken, and that's a valid concern. He's VERY social. Like, he has a trillion friends already, many/most his own age. Our immediate family everyone has 2-3 kids, all of our friends all have 2-3 kids, and our church has like 60+ kids under 3 years of age (no joke). Lots and lots of activities, interaction, parties, play dates at the park and such.

That's the thing you gotta do when you decide to home school. It's a lot of work/effort. But this is the most important thing ever, but that's what you gotta do if you want to raise a proper child and not some hoodrat or ignit flat brim hat hard parking wanksta like half the retards on CR

I figured you had thought of that. I'm sure it is possible, but every home schooled kid i knew was weird as ****. Booger eaters mostly.

Good luck, I'm sure you will figure it out.

I have a few homeschooled friends.
All are of them are incredibly smart and well adjusted.
It's all in how well the parents socialize the kid.
