Free Keynote Mockup Templates for Prototyping Mobile, Web and Desktop Apps

July 16th, 2012 Comments off

With Keynotopia Mockup Bundle, you can sketch user interfaces using Apple Keynote.

When your mockups look like simple hand-drawn screens, it’s easier to get feedback on layout and structure, without getting distracted by the detail.

Keynote mockups are better than hand-drawn sketches because you can iterate on them and modify them without having to redraw them.

Clean memory

February 20th, 2012 No comments
// Swaps the process out of physical RAM memory
SetProcessWorkingSetSize(GetCurrentProcess(), (SIZE_T)-1, (SIZE_T)-1);

Можно ещё делать так, когда память процесса превышает некую “норму”:

EmptyWorkingSet(GetCurrentProcess());

pragma warning

February 3rd, 2012 No comments

#pragma warning – enables selective modification of the behavior of compiler warning messages.

Additional “pragma warning” parameter is suppress – pushes the current state of the pragma on the stack, disables the specified warning for the next line, and then pops the warning stack so that the pragma state is reset.

Also __pragma() can be used instead of #pragma which allows it to use inside macros:

#define __const_cond( c ) \
 __pragma(warning(push)) \
 __pragma(warning(disable:4127)) \
 ( c ) \
 __pragma(warning(pop))
