I decided this last weekend to pick C++ up again. I haven't touched the stuff since I graduated from college, and things have vanished from my brain. However, I'm doing quite well at re-learning everything.
I just got the basis of a MySQL interface class to compile without error, and everything I did was pretty well straightforward. Overall, I'm very pleased with myself, and I hope that I'll do better with it all once I get my C++ book back from my parents' place.
