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.
I have a task that is maybe three calls deep from the MVVM Login command to the Web API call for a token. The API had an erroneous connection string, to an older version of the database*, and the UserManager.CreateUser method was failing in the Register action. It took about fifteen minutes, and a hard break-point, e.g. Debug.Fail(), to find the error.
The stack trace was most confounding, and it mentioned the Account controller and the error once that I could see in an 86 line long stack track, most of which were exceptions on a MoveNext() method on a slew of async tasks.
It is clear that I have some learning to do regarding configuring the innermost task, the long running one that is to be awaited, and that learning will begin tomorrow morning at 04h30, my normal starting time. Time to consult the venerable Mr. Skeet's seminal tome on C# 5.
* It's damned annoying how EF drops a default connection string, like a turd, into your config file, that points to the new fangled LocalDb. Then you forget to set one up, your first migration creates the DB there, then when you can't connect to where you expect it, you fix the connection string, and re-run the migration in the right database. Then, when you have done a few more migrations, and add e.g. a test project, it is once again pointing to the out-of-date LocalDb version.
Well, if you would use a flat file and single thread the thing, then you wouldn't have these problems!

(going for the 'how low a response can a post get' record) my welder cant run a 3.2 mm stick, that's about 110 amps, for more than 15 mins without the heat cut out kicking in and rendering it dead for half an hour. Its a sodding pain, this pergola is going to take days to put up.
Reminds me that it's time I learned to weld. Have had my late dad's machine sitting idle the the garage for over two years now. Going to do a cleanup and flog most of his mountain of power tools, except the press drill, table saw, and welder. I can do a damned fine job with the other two.
