The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
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.
That makes me wonder if that odd thing I saw earlier with CP have to do with this DDoS?
Maybe I was routed through those IPs at that time or something or the cdn.codeproject.com is hosted out there where things were attacked?
I dunno, but interesting.
Isn't this Internet thing supposed be able to be hit by a nuke and survive? Like cockroaches, right?
Right. Plus, those companies have defaulted to WiFi technologies which ends up connecting devices unnecessarily (in many cases) to the Internet. Why didn't they just use _local_ connections like bluetooth enabled type of devices instead?
Some might see my idea as limited, but I have no need to monitor my refrigerator from 50 miles away. I just don't.
And, I like the responsibility of having to know my thermostat is set before I leave the house. Just sayin'.
1. Wow. Someone found a piece of metal with markings on it in some mud. They then misidentified it twice, and then said that half of it had suddenly "turned to dust" from corrosion. Can we spell "bullsh1t", Children?
2. Funny how none of the dinosaur models look like actual dinosaurs, isn't it? Kinda puts paid to the idea that they're models of dinosaurs, though, doesn't it? It's Art, Man!
3. It's a hoax. Everyone knows it -- except the inhabitants of the village, who refuse to know it.
4. Um, yeah. The page itself admits that it's nothing.
5. It's a bird, for God's sake. Go whittle a few birds for yourself. I'll bet the first 10 will look like space shuttles, and the next 10 will look like what we'll be using instead of space shuttles in 50 years' time.
6. "When an analysis of the bore hole was conducted, it was determined that it had been made with modern day equipment".
When statements like that are made, you just call bullsh1t and walk away, because bullsh1t is what it is.
7. Another one that the page itself explains.
8. "The hairstyle and the beard match up closely with the style of Roman statue".
Seriously? So no-one in the entire country was allowed to carve anything different? They had to carve busts of their friends to look like every other carving? If anyone had a different haircut, they weren't allowed to carve it?
Sorry, but I see absolutely bugger-all to do with aliens. I'm not even going to bother visiting the other page.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
I have religiously been a Internet Explorer devotee despite the onslaught of many a new browser. But alas, I have seen the light after repeated hiccups and crashes with IE over the past week. So having just removed all all vestiges of IE from my desktop, taskbar and menu, I am a lost soul as I feel my years of blind faith have been unrewarded by Microsoft. Oh well, easy come, easy go! Here is my parting message for Microsoft....
