Good work ArchKnight on updating the previous topic, I'm sure it will help a lot of people out if they need Web/Programming help (or a place to start) :^:

In terms of the table codes, I don't really see a need for them (Or where they would go) but if you need any help with the Table BBCodes (as you said you are fairly new to them), feel free to send me a PM ;)

Thanks for the compliment. I don't really see a need to use tables, considering that it messes up, everytime I'll try to edit the post.

I started to re-learn C++ tonight and made a pretty cool currency conversion program that allows you to convert USD into 5 different types of currency.
