Body stats, July 2018

Let me first say that the project of getting my body into summer shape is not going the way I planned. As you will see from my body stats, it’s all bad. I know what I need to do to overcome this hurdle, but I suck at doing it. Luckily, I have some plans.

Skype messing with the sound volume

If you are using Skype for Business, possibly also standard Skype, you might appreciate the fact that it reduces the volume of other apps like Spotify etc when there's an incoming or outgoing call. A problem I have in Windows 10 is that the sound is reduced, but when the call is over the volume is not reset properly. I've found that I can go to the volume mixer and adjust the volume of the muted application, but often when I then change the overall sound volume, the apps volume is reduced again. Luckily there's a solution. While not perfect, it stops the annoyance of Skype not unmuting sound properly.

Beginning C++ 53-61: Arrays and Vectors

Arrays and Vectors?? I know that an array is like a collection of values. I also know that vectors are used for describing direction and speed in maths. I don't think that's the same here. Well, time to learn some new concepts of the C++ programming language.

Beginning C++ 43-52: Variables and Constants

So this time we have come to variables and constants. Probably some of the most important things in any software as you need somewhere to store the input and data your program uses. This post is a long one, but hang in there and let's see where this section leads us.

Beginning C++ 36-42: Structure

This section teaches us the structures of a C++ program. C++ being a static language imposes some pretty strict rules on what you can do and not, so learning how a program is structured is pretty important. This section starts shows us how a C++ program is structured.
