Sort of live

I’m back to reviewing history, at present concentrating on the late medieval period. Since I have picked up programming again after a long hiatus, I’m working with “Windows Programming”, 5th edition, by Petzold. This is 20 years old and I’m rather surprised there hasn’t been a new edition, focused on 64-bit windows, although (looking at Google Play) there are still a lot of 32-bit programs on the market. The basics haven’t changed. I’m working with Visual Studio 2015 (can’t afford to upgrade yet), although the appearance of programs has. There are a couple of other Computer science texts that I also want to be working with, and I’m trying to integrate my computer knowledge. For now, I’m working on the basic input/output functions. Besides putting text in a window, the next chapter involves graphics.
