    I was just shutting down my 12yr old daughters computer. I found Visual Basic running. She has programed a working random number generator.
    Sure she copied most of the code from the help screens. But she created the form, has a working text box, a lable displaying the results with a command button to generate a numer. All on her own.
    Her first program! So cool....
    What more could a old nerd ask for? :cry:

    Awww... I was disappointed at first that you didn't have a new baby, but this rocks too.

    Happy First Random Number Generator (as far as your father knows :wink:), Fally, a.k.a. Partial Derivative! :smile: :cry:

    Congrats!

    Awww, next thing you know you'll be hearing the pitter-patter of a finite element analysis program running around the house.

    They grow up so fast! *sniff*

    To throw away visual basic and start programming in C?

    Hmm

    Tell her to make a program which lists the first 500 prime numbers in the fastest way possible. It's really easy but might be fun for her :smile:

    Unfortunately, this was really a streaming list of purchases being applied to Integral's credit card. :rofl:

    Lots more Integral. But good for you as I'm sure she loves you very much. Suppose though you might want to know what I mean by lots more: making it though adolesence relatively unharmed. Don't wish to be critical just reviving Ophelia that's all.
