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.
Most likely it will just be a few small flurries (< half-inch, or for my Euro Friends < 1.27 cm), but alas, the season has begun for good or bad. I don't particularly care for the snow, but my kids love it.
Have you stocked up on treats[^] for all the little darlings that come a-knocking and disturb your peaceful evening?
Personally, I'm going to test the brussel sprout idea on the Missus, she hates those...
BTW: Link SFW if not for the digestion...
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - I'd just like a chance to prove that money can't make me happy. Me, all the time
Good profanity filtering, it's perfectly genuine the grammar is almost right though
Lucca is a wonderful city but during the Lucca Comics it is invisible, there are deep walls of people and pavillions, cosplayers and performers. Colourful, with a distinct smell (not always pleasant) and feeling. It's my third year there - probably I won't return there for a while though cause I live a bit far from Tuscany and each time it's 4-500€ of expense only to reach Lucca, stay for the nights and pay the tickets for a couple of days (the others I go as a freeloader, I can't access the pavillions but after the saturday it's moot as everything of value has already been bought.
Closing note: the correct sentence is "Se lo avessi saputo, ci sarei anch'io"
...and your grammar was still better than the one of most natives, graduated included.
The sentence construction was perfect, it's just that "sarei" goes for the first person singular, "sarebbe" is a third person singular.
And "Se io sapessi" refers to a present/current condition, while "Se lo avessi saputo" refers to a past condition, is qute literally a "If I had known that...".
Many people here would get the entire sentence construction wrong with bigger errors in the verb tenses - which are a PITA in Italian with respect to English. That, the fact that each word has an implicit gender which calls for different articles, and the fact that each verb has a different suffix for each of the 6 possible subjects (I, You singular, He/She/It, We, You plural, Them).
On Sunday Italy is a ghost nation we take sundays very seriously. There are many laws strictly regulamentating the opening of commercial activities on Sunday and festive days, usually only big distribution has some kind of special arrangement (but they are still forced to strange things like opening only ont the first and third sunday of the month...).
Also every non primary city feels like a ghost town, most activities are located in the main centres of each Region (some rich regions have more than one, others have practically none). Many people prefer the small towns to live in because there is a lot more tranquility and many relations are still personal - in my 1200 inhabitants town for example the postman tries to deliver many more times in a day than the ones he's mandated to... it may seem a small thing but it can really improve the quality of life.
