I myself am not C++ programmer! Sorry! Use google.com you can find mamy results what you look for. Enter the blank search box field: "OS security algorithm using C++" or "browser security algorithm using C++" without quotation.

Go NL Programming section you will find lot of C++ programmers there.

Good luck sayhi2ay!

No, I am so sorry that you will not contact me at all. What is information security class all about? Does it relate to SMF?

If it is not related to SMF, then please create your own topic on the subject "Information Security Class" whether should I help you out or not. The more someone might be benefit learning about your information security class on NL.

Thank you!

You can use free host that has PHP/MySQL support with the capability to upgrade next package to be sufficient running your forum expanding no problem.

For forum administrator, to learn basic PHP and HTML to know how to modify the coding without mess up the real SMF PHP coding. Make yourself habit to back up SMF files before installing new SMF mods. Always back up first!!!

Good idea to make two SMF themes: one for real one (your theme where real members access) and the other experimential forum site (default theme where you can test them additional new mods or editting PHP codes). Back up both!

If you do not understand what I talk about, please consult with real Nigerian SMF consultant (The Wall) I already provide the link above.

Hi,

It seems that a bit advanced if not I'll say that you worry yourself on what don't really matter.

Yes! You heard me clearly you worry on setting up a forum where you could just buy a domain name and hosting for your need and simply log into the cpanel of your hosting there you will find fantastico,open itand install SMF jeje.

As far I'm concerned your headache should be pomotion and marketing and not setting up.

Thanks
