I'm the Grumpy Old Ape sometimes answering C++ questions on Stackoverflow.
Usually you will find me in the C++ Lounge of the Stack Overflow chat.

I occasionally retweet something on my Twitter account, and I'm known to even generate my own tweets once in a while.

comment 6-year-old bed wetting
I do agree with the "drink plenty during daytime". One of my kids had the same problem and after we protocoled what goes in and out, it turned out the child drank 60% of her daily liquids after 5pm. Changing this habit (with the help of the teacher, BTW) helped a lot.

comment 6-year-old bed wetting
What is "not waking her at night" supposed to accomplish? She will have to get up when the bed is wet anyway. You want the child to wake up before it happens.

comment Attention issue or low self-esteem
Good answer, +1 from me. One thing I found invaluable for helping my kids master basic math was Lego. Why would 2x4 equal 4x2? Turn a 2x4 brick around. How to add/subtract past decimals? I use Lego for that. Dimensions, areas, volumes... I all explain it using common Lego bricks.

comment Array of shared pointers to different classes
I couldn't possibly agree more with @Mark's comment. See here for what Undefined Behavior means.

comment Array of shared pointers to different classes
@bpw: How would you do otherwise? You cannot cast (and this always boils down to casting at some level or other) to a type you do not know at compile-time. The only way I can think of to deal with types unknown at compile-time is runtime polymorphism, which requires related types.

comment Array of shared pointers to different classes
@Satus: I say "You don't want to do that because it leads to code that's buggy, hard to fix, and hard to maintain." and you ask why you don't want to do this? I'm not sure what to answer to that.

Actually, what you'll get its undefined behavior. That shows as a segfault if you're lucky.
