The Daily Flip
I finally got my hands on Effective C++, CD Edition, by Scott Meyers. I must say I'm certainly happy with what I've been reading so far. If you're a C++ programmer and have yet to see this, you may want to take a look. For 30$ at Amazon, its well worth it. On the CD edition, you get 2 books by Meyers, and several magazine articles. Its pretty much packed with C++ knowledge gems. Don't worry, I'm not trying to get a referal fee. Here's a clean link to it from Amazon.com. Thanks go out to the many people who recommended this book.
BTW - For those who've been asking, the book review section on flipCode is being redesigned.
Image Of The Day Update - There's a new Image Of The Day online, a 3D Engine screenshot submitted by John Mustance. The Image Of The Day on flipCode features screenshots submitted by readers of this site. If you'd like to post a screenshot of something you're working on, or would like to browse the IOTD gallery, visit here!
Code Of The Day Update - There's a new Code Of The Day entry online, a Pixel Format Class kindly submitted by Tobin Schwaiger-Hastanan. The Code Of The Day is a feature here on flipCode which showcases reader-submitted source code while trying to build a useful reference archive for you to frequent.
