im agreeing with you. i think you misunderstood. nathan2222 appeared frustrated that everyone claimed to be intermediate, and i said because it would foolish to think otherwise (well actually i used arrogant but it would be foolish as well)
you are the first person i've seen that has admitted to learning C++ to the point that nothing is new or interesting. All i usually see is "i've been programming for a million years in c++ but i still consider myself at intermediate level".
Actually, what I meant was that until now, whatever I learnt was part of the language.So its getting pretty boring and therefore I wanted to try something new related to the language like coding styles and standards. I didn't mean that I became an expert at the language. I'd consider myself post-intermediate at my best.
Actually, it could well have. Your first few years would have been pretty much entirely dedicated to learning how to walk and speak. 2 years of learning straight for 12 hours a day is already over 8000 hours. Also, as @Little Bobby Tables said, its unlikely that you are an expert typer or speaker anyway.
i am an expert at nothing. every day i learn something new and i havent spend 10k hours on anything. and assumptions have nothing to do with this. i dont know why you keep mentioning them in half sentences
no i am not. you just werent being clear. my correction was very obvious to see. typer is different enough from typist. you just put in a ' in the middle of a sentence and did nothing to bring attention to it.
So "spend" was correct in that sentence? Hmm.
I only asked the question because i noticed the small letters after the '.' in your posts and that happens in my posts too when i'm using a smartphone because it doesn't capitalize depending on the view. I just wanted to know if i was right.
