I'm the Grumpy Old Ape who used to answer C++ questions on Stackoverflow. I have long since ceased doing so, but am still ranked pretty high on SO.
If you're very (un)lucky, you can 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.

@aherocalledFrog: I know math is that way, but I still gotta point out that 2014-1990 is 24, not 26. Sorry for being so anal.

comment Does STL Vector use 'new' and 'delete' for memory allocation by default?
@einpoklum That is a 6 year old comment. We have two new standard versions and another one on the horizon. Of course things might have changed since then.

comment At what age can a child be responsible for deciding whether to wear warm clothes?
+1 One thing this "I recommend, you decide" policy has done for my children is that it has taught them to heed parental recommendations. If my youngest says "I don't want to wear that scarf", I say "I think it's too cold outside to go without a scarf, but it's up to you" – which almost inevitably leads to her wearing the scarf. (Plus, we do not get to argue about the scarf at all.) When they were very young (2yo), I would take the scarf to kindergarten in my pocket, and only produce it if/when they would moan about being cold. Nowadays I don't, because they rarely fail to take the advice.

I came here to write pretty much exactly this, and I would give it 100 upvotes if I could. Very welcome to a like-minded parent.

comment Determining size of a polymorphic C++ class
@PaulGroke: However, as Marius explained, due to the possibility of dynamic linking, on popular platforms, comparing std::type_info might resort to string comparisons.
