I have been using ShaderFX years ago as a plugin for 3DMax. Then I have been exported RT shaders into Quest3D engine, it was fantastic. Hope that Autodesk will do similar with Unity3d :)

my absolute most hated thing in c++:

class myClass
{
value* MyValue

function someFunction
{
value* MyValue = GetPointerValue(); <-- !!!!!
}
};

This f-ing SUCKS. Accidentally put 'value*' in front of MyValue again and no warning, nothing! I want my hours back trying to figure out why MyValue remained NULL! GRRRR
I know its 'valid' c++ but who does this on purpose?!

It's probably buried in the /W3 or /W4 warning levels.

Here's my Franken-Setup.
I wanted to re-cycle my old tablet laptop as a 'wacom tablet' at home, since it has a tablet pen build in.
After lots of experimenting, I found a good, workable combo.

The main computer (laptop on top right) runs a free program called 'Input Director' in slave mode.
The Tablet Laptop runs Input Director in master mode and has 'mirror - mouse only' enabled.
Then I wrote a very simple C# app that runs full-screen on the tablet laptop so that my mouse clicks there do nothing (as in, activate no programs, the screen is simply black).
Normally Input Director mirrors the mouse action on both laptops so you can run the same app on both computers. But obviously that is not what I wanted to do with the 'mirror' mode.

That by itself works, but tends to have noticeable lag (resulting in non-smooth lines in Photoshop & 3dsMax). So I bought a small 'crossover' network cable (the yellow cable) to have a direct connection between the two laptops instead of going over wireless (I had to give the tablet access to the main laptop in the Firewall, since the tablet runs Vista and the main one runs Win7). Now the lag is gone and for the price of the cable I have a basic Wacom tablet.

Pressure sensitivity is not being send over by Input Director, so that part is missing from a real wacom tablet, but I tend to not use pressure sensitivity anyway in the work I do.

I can also run the setup with dual screens (the monitor on the top left and the laptop screen on the top right). But I found that the tablet pen doesn't have enough resolution to have such a wide desktop. You start to notice imprecision.

That's really cool! You're about 1/3rd of the way to a Cintiq.
