I agree it will not be easy like you said, but it would increase quality significantly of their and our products. I think MS did a great job when they designed the Exception model for .Net, but it might be time for them to spend some more effort to enhance it some more...

"Many : not conversant with mathematical studies, imagine that because it [the Analytical Engine] is to give results in numerical notation, its processes must consequently be arithmetical, numerical, rather than algebraical and analytical. This is an error. The engine can arrange and combine numerical quantities as if they were letters or any other general symbols; and it fact it might bring out its results in algebraical notation, were provisions made accordingly." Ada, Countess Lovelace, 1844
Well, due to these arbitrary difficulties in VC++/.NET, I over the years switched to PHP/MySQL after completing my span of being a workplace hero in Windows environment for half a decade. And I must say, I am much more happy and productive in PHP/MySQL environment but seriously miss the challenging and real development of VC++ days.
Heavy metal fan Justin Lee Collins tells the story of the British pioneers who drew up the blueprint for "the Devil's pop music". Metal gods like Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Motorhead and Iron Maiden, whose vast record sales and enduring influence have made heavy metal the global music phenomenon it is today. In the first programme, find out how heavy metal music started right here in Britain over 40 years ago. Black Sabbath have to take the accolade for being the originators, when they rose from the fiery furnaces of the industrial West Midlands. Their doom-laden rock was the complete antithesis to the hippy movement of the late 60s and the four Brummies soon conquered the world with their monster riffs, dark lyrics and an appetite for rock 'n' roll excess. Equally as important were Deep Purple, a five piece band of exceptional musicians whose all-out hard rock music laid down the foundations for all heavy metal bands since: high pitched screams, heavy guitars, a battery of drums and enough testosterone to power an army. And if that wasn't enough to kick-start a heavy metal revolution, Justin reveals how the arrival of Judas Priest a few years later, would confirm the UK as the epicentre of all things metal.
Justin Lee Collins continues the story of British heavy metal and reaches 1977, when some fans thought bands like Black Sabbath and Deep Purple had become overblown, pompous and out of touch with their audience, and punk came along to change everything.
In this concluding part, JLC explains how the new wave of British heavy metal combined the spirit and DIY attitude of punk with the original metal concepts, hailing an era that would produce international stars such as Iron Maiden, Def Leppard and Motorhead. It was a popular musical movement to rival punk, with hundreds of smaller bands all over the country like Saxon, Diamondhead, Venom, Angel Witch and all-girl metal band Girlschool. And while the 1980s would see a decade of metal dominance in popular music, the British bands were eventually usurped by their American counterparts.
The series includes rare BBC sessions and archive material, plus brand new interviews with members of Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Judas Priest, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Budgie, Saxon, Diamondhead, and many more.
"...able to work in a pressured environment" - like a pilot?
I wouldn't consider it as A) Working for a bank sucks as they have too many controls for me to do my job with gusto and enthusiasm, B) I wouldn't want to work in Scotland, and C) I am my own supervisor, I answer only to an MD and FD.
Also, Whilst I am an Accountant, I am also 'The Tech Guy', a lowly programmer, the Website chap and any other role I wish to take.
(I recently nabbed the Sales Admin role).
This is why I am happy where I am.
(Plus my own office and some elves to order about like a cruel heartless dictator).
