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.
In the auction business they have an expression called the "halo effect". Do you know what that is? It's when an object or work of art is more desirable because of its prior ownership. It's very rare when it happens, you know? Maybe once in a lifetime. Gotta catch it when you can.
Out of the blues, I just remembered there use to be the CodeProject TV icon up there but it just disappeared. I looked around but no link to TV section (or I need glasses)? (No I meant the reading reading glasses)
OK, Iris (an elderly lady with reasonable tech skills) is being moved from her XP desktop to a Win8 lappy, and generally speaking, it's not going too bad. We're about 3 months in, and she's checking her email on win 8 now.
And therein lies the problem.
Windows Mail (my tablet tried to make that Windups Maul, which is surprisingly appropriate...)
How the heck do you get to add an address to the "blocked senders" list? 'Twas easy in outlook... But even with Google I can't get out to work!
Anyone got the stupid software can try it and tell me? Please?
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

I was going to come up with a totally hilarious, side-splitting, back-slapping response to this where I pretended to be Wayne Ronney by changing my display name, but to my dismay "Wayne Rooney[^]" has already signed up, and he's Turkish!
In Outlook, there should be a right-click option to junk it. In Outlook Webmail, you do the same. In the former, you can go to that junk menu and change the settings. In Webmail, you have to click on the Options link in the top right.
As much feature churn as the metro apps have seen, I wouldn't regard anything from almost 2 years ago as a definitive answer about the current status. OTOH I don't use it, so have no idea if they've changed their mindfinally GOTTEN around to adding the feature.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

What will you do if you are the only one who come office today in your team ? Will you work or will you just sit simply? I am tired of being simple. All members went to their home town to celebrate Diwali
So much complexity in software comes from trying to make one thing do two things.
