1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
Oddly, I always think "Gordon Brittas" when I see him.
The missus saw one of the Dimblebore interviews with sweet Gordon Brown (texture like sun) - she said that was the first proper politician she'd seen in any of the televised debates. It's coming to something when you're the leader of you're own political party and your predecessor, a discredited ex-PM comes across better. I won't reveal what she thought of Alex "Smoked" Salmond, it involved the language of the snooker hall, though she compared his trustworthiness to that of some of the shiftier Jordanian Politicos.
"Hi, my name is Bill, I am addicted to being very irritated by clearly erroneous technical documentation; I admit I am sick, and need help, and that my getting well can only come with the help of a higher power, and I believe this anger management group can help me."
"Welcome, Bill" ... repeated by many people present.
"Could you give us an example, Bill, of the kind of thing that sets you ... off ... you know: gets your goat, pulls your chain ?"
"Why yes, just today I was experimenting in WinForms with capturing a set of Points when the run-time user clicks-a-button and drags the mouse around, and then creating a GraphicsPath, and using the Points to add a Curve ... AddCurve(Point, int, int, single) ... to the Path ... then adding that Path to a new Region ... and then reading out the transformed Points by calling the 'GetRegionScans method on the Region and "harvesting" what I hoped would be the "smoothed" Points resulting from using C#'s Cardinal Spline under-the-hood algo-whatever."
... whisper among the group: "What's he talking about ?" ... "He must work for Microsoft."
"Bill, can you translate into more simple language for us ... I mean most of here ..."
"Don't interrupt me: as I was about to say, I read the MS documentation, and the documentation for the third argument to this particular AddCurve method states: 'A value that specifies the amount that the curve bends between control points. Values greater than 1 produce unpredictable results.' That is a duplicate of what the documentation says for the fourth argument, and it is clearly a stinking error, a slimeball of a slipped sentence, an outrageous, egregious ..."
"Bill, are you feeling angry now ?"
"Don't interrupt me !"
"Bill, how often has this happened to you ?"
" 'How often ?' ... you can sit there with a straight face, and say: 'how often ?' ? What the hell is this group: do I really need to explain the trauma of even a single experience like this ... let alone years ... YEARS I SAY ... of wasted effort and time because of mistakes like that ?"
Mutterings from the group: "Is he high ?" ... "Anybody got any Valium ? ... "Are you sure he was frisked before the meeting ?"
"Bill, it appears you may not be ready, at this moment, to really put yourself 'out in front' of the group, like you are doing now."
"Oh, well, I'm sorry, but you did ask for an example."
