Re: Starport Banners for Your Website

just download them, convert them (changing the filename on windows XP or better will convert it automatically), then upload them to imageshack or mediafire or something

I know primarily Java. HTML, C#, SQL, and Python are all in my arsenal. C++ is a beast that should be easy to tame. I find learning programming languages easy when I'm in the mood to program :P.

Not really. I can pull big projects in a few days if I get a chunk of time open in my schedule. I'm estimating at around 1,250 lines of code if I code it heavy. If I go light and risk some bugs I can pull it off in 850.

ArdRhys4, that is easily avoided with a bit of programming.

This idea is best used for an intelligent defense system that concentrates fire in tactical patterns, leading the target as well as covering the most likely movement points depending on the available firepower.
