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.
After seeing Richards response in this thread [^]I am prompted to ask whether rooting a phone is considered hacking.
I am under the impression rooting the phone will give you back the ability to control the apps installed and running on you phone/fondleslab. I find it alarming that when I clear memory it tells me 25 apps have been closed. Not being able to uninstall Youtube and all the Samsung crap on my phone is irritating.
So what else does rooting the dammed thing do (other than potentially turning it into a brick) that may be considered hacking.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
Lots of people confuse hacking with criminal behavior when they are two different things. I don't see anything wrong with rooting your own phone. Now if you were trying to root other people's phone so that you could steal from them, that's another matter.
The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
So my laptop is plugged into the mains charging and I get up to turn the light off with my left hand whilst holding the laptop in my right. As I flick the switch I get a shock in my hand touching the light switch followed immediately by another shock in the hand holding the laptop which is attached to the mains.
Anyone worked with RFC 3080[^] or 3081[^]?
I started to implement my Beep library and would really love to have someone to check what I do, and eventually tell me where I possibly misinterpreted the specs...
Yes, I'm having a nice expanded weekend due to Swiss' national July 4th today.
Apart from that, the army is going well and I might even get a promotion to be a Sergeant Major, and Chief Sergeant Major later.
Plus, I'm strongly thinking about joining the KFOR[^] after March next year, for a 6 months duty.

At first, it was planned as a simple logging library, to write Sylog log files. Later on I decided to add a log viewer and server / client programs in order to be able to write logs over a network connection. It is stated in the RFC that Syslog messages not going over UDP but TCP are needed to be transmitted via BEEP, and now I find myself implementing a BEEP library. Well, I'm planning the architecture right now, and the rest of what I was planning does only exist in my head so far. Apart from the file logger, which exists in a raw form.
Almost a month ago, my 27yo stepson broke both bones in his lower left leg. Of course, his mother and I drove 3 hours to pick him up at the hospital. He rode back with his mother and I followed in his vehicle. (After spending $500 to get a new fuel pump put in and $60 in gas since it was empty!) Apparently, the leg injury caused an old herniated disk problem to flare up, which has been the major source of pain. It was bad enough that after an epidural failed to help, he had back surgery, fusing together two vertebrae. For this entire time, he has been camped out in the living room floor, or on the couch, and being catered to by me or the missus, including cooking, getting snacks and drinks, emptying piss bottles, spit bottles, etc. The TV in the living room has been on non-stop for most of this time. I was disappointed the other night when I was unable to change the channel since he was recording two movies and the wife had two shows also recording! I haven't had that problem for a long time. At least I have my workshop! It's nice until it hits 100 degrees!
He thinks he might be ready to go back home tomorrow, but it's not a firm decision. At least it's finally being discussed.
