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.

There's nothing of substance on the page that I can see - a bunch of images which,. when I clicked on a couple, seemed to take me to a link that at least has a prev and next link (not very obvious ones, but I fund 'em) but they don't do anything that I can tell)
Is this just engadget's way of hoping I'll accidentally click on an Ad while I'm trying to read an article? Or, as I asked, is it just me
When you click on the picture link it goes to another busy page with a big pic in the middle and.. behold!
On the side there is a little text which is the relevant info!!!
I know, it's an awesome clear web design, isn't it?!
You're right! In fact when I clicked on them before I posted the 50-word-comprehensive-review wasn't there at all. Now I've read them all, I'm fully qualified to tell the Wife which phone to buy which sites to not bother visiting.
It's an absolute blinder. Don't believe the specs on the page, though:
- They say android 4.2.1, but it's 4.2.2
- They say the resolution is 800x640, but it's 1280x720
- They show the AnTuTu score as 14,000, but I can't get it to drop below 17,000, even when I leave all kinds of stuff open in the background (I haven't tried running it without a SIM card in, though; that might cause a drop).
 I had a cr@p of a job inserting that URL -- it wouldn't let me delete personal-ish info

In a .NET application, what process should be used to obtain a series of Setting values? A procedure? A function? Local variables? Global variables? Pass a structure?
That's an open ended question. Sounds like marketing trying to describe tech, or a way to dance around asking a real programming question. Ether way, what you're talking about is application architecture and design. Crack open a book man, that's what we did.
Actually I don't understand your question, but I will explain the usage of these, procedure, I have used them in SQL but never in .NET so no wrong information,
A function is something that you write to recall the very same set of code block. For example, you write a code that gets repeated at many locations in your software, so you create a function, and place that code block in it and recall it each time you want to use it. Like this
Local variables are the variables present or defined inside any function block, like main function or any custom function whereare Global functions are present anywhere inside the class, that are accessible in every code block on that class file.
A Structure is opposite of Class, similar is behaviour, in struct, you send the object itself inside the function, whereas in the class, you just send the copy of it. In struct you actually pass the reference of the object.
You can use them in your coding to make your software efficient. Sorry for not-answering your question because I don't understand it.

Holy crap on a cracker... ask a simple question...
I know what a function is and what a procedure is and how they are used.
I started with a procedure: GetSettings and passed in a number of local variables.
But, then I thought, a procedure shouldn't be returning values, that is what a function does.
However, there is more than one value to return (currently 6), so I decided to use a stucture and have the function return a single structure with values in each element.
The series of data is: source directory for file to be processed, from e-mail address, to e-mail address, SMTP server, report type (row or column based), single e-mail or an e-mail per file processed.
Now, having been on here for some time, I have seen flame wars on style: what should a procedure to, what should a function do, blah, blah, blah....
So, simple question of style and maintainability...
