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.
it's now the second time this has happened to me, but it happened from the other side now. the first time was 4 or 5 years ago where i copied some text to paste it somewhere and my manager did a copy and paste on his laptop, but he pasted my text. both of us windows 7 and on a work domain.
now, 5 minutes ago, the same thing happened to me again. i took a screenshot of some code in visual studio, pasted it in mspaint, dragged a block around a function and copied that to paste in an email. when i ctrl-v'd in the new email, it pasted a shortened youtube like to a "nissan 200sx" video (i have very little interest in watching anything other than food videos on youtube). this time, i'm on windows10 and not on the work domain (ain't nobody got time fo' that!). i also have no idea who this link came from and how it infiltrated my clipboard.
so far my leading theories are:
- crazy-ass windows
- is aliens
- barry allen ran in, looked for a youtube video, copied the link, emailed it off and forgot to copy my previous item before he left
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
Yes, we know that we failed miserably in our "Mobile First!" campaign, selling less phones than a barbershop, but we did manage to make great improvements to Windows, during that period, making it a lot more like the operating system you need on a cellphone!
Yes, we know that we failed miserably in our "Graphic Design First!" campaign, selling less PCs than a thrift store, but we did manage to make great improvements to Windows, during that period, making it more dependent on little pieces of junk hardware that got lost or got damaged, and that always damaged your screen!
Yes, we know that we failed miserably in our "Tiny Tots First!" campaign, selling less PCs than a fishmonger that's closed for the holidays, but we did manage to make great improvements to Windows, during that period, making it a lot more accessible to children under the age of three, by locking off or removing everything that a three-year-old can't handle!
But this time, we've got it right!
We've listened to you, our honoured customer, and heard what you've said about wanting flexibility, wanting room to make your PC your own, and wanting to to configure your PC the way that you need it!
Our new, innovative development allows you, the home user, to build your PC EXACTLY the way you want it!
We provide the chipboard, the nails, a bit of glue, and instructions translated from Swedish by Google Translate (unfortunately, the bing translation ran into problems), and you, our honoured user, can assemble the PC any way you see fit!
And you still get the same great operating system that's designed for two-year-old graphic artists' cellphones!
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
The single best product they ever produced is Windbg, and yet it is never advertised.
Are you suggesting that Microsoft advertise Windbg on TV? No wonder you're not a marketing guru.
This is like complaining that Nissan should not advertise their Altima cars, but instead advertise about VQ36DE, because it's their best "product". You don't walk to a Nissan dealer and ask to buy a VQ series engine, do you?
Hint: One thing is a mainstream commercial product that generates revenue (a meaningful thing to advertise), and another is a low level utility.
