I have a suggestion that I would like on this web site as well as other beginning programmers. I think a tutorial on Memory Allocation, Releasing Memory, Brief explanation of how memory works and how it is addressed. Also maybe a list of possible causes for memory leaks. Mainly with graphics.
Just a suggestion.

Sounds like a good suggestion to me. I know nothing of the things you mention. Oh dear I am worrying myself now!:(

Theres a code sample in the Code Library by yours truly that demonstrates the memory API to create a linked list. It also kinda deals with pointers (well, as close to pointers as you can get with VB).
I wouldn't mind knocking up a quick tutor if you'd like one, I'm not the most knowledgeable person on the subject, and I am sure some of the elders here are better qualified, but my code works - so I must know something!! Heh.

Well... whenever I finish a large project, I usually chalk up the fact that it works to pure, blind luck. :p

Sometimes I just whack my head against the keyboard... the other day, I re-wrote Windows completely by accident!! :p

A tutorial would be great, I'll check out what you have done already first.
