Like a lot of folks, I have a Windows Phone and I enjoy it a lot. I've filled it up with (free) games and they pass the time quickly when I have to wait in line or otherwise have an empty minute or two. C++ MVP Marius Bancila had the same experience, but unlike me he responded by writing a version of the game in MFC so he could play it on his own PC as well as on a phone.

You can get the source from his blog post, and another post and its comments (mostly in Romanian - Bing Translate is your friend there) have a nice discussion of performance issues. After all, whenever two or more C++ programmers gather together, someone is going to have an opinion about performance. Take a look for yourself!

Please stop mentioning Bing. It's not a friend, I have friends and this certainly doesn't look like one. If you meant to say "Bing's your search engine" then no, not even that.

One of my stock phrases is the use of "is your friend" to mean "can help you." And Bing Translate can indeed help you when you come across a page of blog comments all in Romanian. The link is to an auto-translated version of the page. As always, I mention whatever random collection of stuff I happen to like. The set of people who like C++, Windows 7, and Canadian weather might very well consist only of me; nonetheless I continue to blog.
