I don't know how to make sound in flash work :( But you can open the video in an external player (with sound), by clicking the "this link" in the right side, below download, and simply telling your videoplayer to stream it. - Brix

I don't know about ubuntu, but in gentoo, flash sound wouldn't work while I was using flash 7. I upgraded to netscape-flash-9 and everything is hunky dory now. The problem is, your sound device is being used by something else (lsof | grep /dev/snd). It's because the old flash used oss, I think, and the new one uses alsa.

I wish I could say the same. I run Gentoo and can't get any sound out of Firefox. I already upgraded to netscape-flash-9. I enabled ALSA support and OSS support in the kernel, installed alsa-oss... I'm out of ideas. -- Michiel

According to the Ubuntu wiki (at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash): * Install the alsa-oss package * Make sure your /etc/firefox/firefoxrc has 'FIREFOX_DSP="aoss"' Worked for me.

I'm still pretty sure that worked for me when I was running 32-bit Ubuntu (Edgy). I'm now running 64-bit Edgy, and hadn't reinstalled it yet. So I tried to do so to watch this video and this time couldn't get sound to work with Flash 7. But the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FirefoxAMD64FlashJava said to install Flash 9, which fixed it.

If you are using Windows or Linux try MPlayer (http://mplayerhq.hu/); It works without installing codecs on the OS. On Mac I've had better experiences with VLC (http://videolan.com).

It's perfectly legible if you follow along in the slides that are also linked from that site :-) But people just getting the link to the video won't see that... Hmm, I tried to add some links directly to the Google vid page but I think I may have made a booboo. I tried to add links as 'tags'. I guess that's not what tags are for. There's no way to remove it either other than to mark the links as "spam" which they aren't really, and I would hate for nwcpp.org to get blacklisted by google as a spam website. Added to a comment also, but links in comments aren't clickable, which seems a shame. Too bad the nwcpp.org people didn't just make the link on the slide point to the specific talk page rather than the general home page. --bb

That's just crazy talk :P. First hit on the search for "Walter Bright NWCPP: Advanced D Programming Language Features" (the title of the video) is the page at nwcpp.org on the talk, which has the link to the slides at the bottom. The search, for the lazy: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Walter+Bright+%40+NWCPP%3A+Advanced+D+Programming+Language+Features&btnG=Search Just because it could have been even *easier* doesn't mean it's not easily found. This does require them to actually *look* for it, though...

Excellent to hear, Vi still use now, great editor and has saved my bacon on more than one occasion when FreeBSD baulked on boot. I also admit I love Emacs, though I would be lined up against the wall without a blindfold and shot for admitting this where I work. Pity D still doesn't have a fully fledged RAD environment yet, but Descent looks promising, not sure about DWT that NG seems stagnant right now. Yes it is simple to bang out lines of code to create windows in D, but when it comes to fine tuning control layouts RAD is a must for me. D is gaining popularity and people at work are taking an interest, though purely from a curiosity perspective at the moment, a couple of the them have it installed at home. D is like C# on steroids Sharp is to C as Razor to D. I also like D in that it is much simpler to grind the Metal with D than C# weather good or bad sometimes it is required. Also I like that it is not a requirement to make everything a class in D again sometimes a plain function will do and though there are structs in C# IMHO a function when you only need a function will require less overhead than creating even a value type struct.

Yes used wxWidgets with C++ nice GUI better than MFC and neater than Win32 raw C code. wxSmith afaik only works for C++? not had a chance to play with wxD yet, my next port of call. I am a Delphi developer by trade and recently moved to C# (its where the money is right now) Following with interest D a great deal of interest in fact. I may even be commissioned to do a feasibility study using D as a mainstream language, but this is sometime off yet lots of red tape and boring meetings to get through first yawn yawn. I expect D will be at version 7 by the time this happens, it only took 3 years to move to C# from Delphi. L8rs

If at all, it is currently being refactored into a "new wxSmith". But the XRC resources should work for all languages, including D.

Let's say that it aims to be *very* similar to the C++ version, since it uses the same libraries (it's a "binding", not a port) --anders

Same here :-) Long hair was too hot, also.

Great video! I think the C++ guys comments are humorous. But Walter, you look about 20 years younger than I expected :)

There were actually two quite annoying guys. Then there was this great guy with a Romanian accent who tried to prevent them from trolling as much as he could. Ahem. :o) Andrei

Looked like pizza to me. Mmmm pizza.

Mental image of Walter _shattered_! Don't know why, but totally didn't expect him to look like that.

You're not the only one.

He looks so damn...normal. At least if you expected Doc Brown from Back to the Future. :p

Hahaha.. SO true! :D

Nice, yes good finally to put a face with the name. Until now I'd just give out this picture of Walter, http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/8374/brightwf4jf.jpg Decent presentation; I haven't finished watching yet, though. Great to have it online for others to benefit from. - Chris

Great presentation, I really like how people try to stick with their language just because it can do the same things. (there is good reason we don't use assembly to program)
