Mine too - when I first opened the solution there were already over 130 projects there. I'd previously seen a solution with 50 projects in another contract - that was too many as well, but they had accumulated over a few years and it did actually (mostly) do what it was supposed to.
Most solutions I come across seem to have between 10 and 15 projects including test projects. I'd say once 20 project is reached, red warning lights should be flashing.
Not that it's necessarily wrong, but at that point it's probably worth considering if a different approach may be more appropriate.
Agreed, as I mentioned in another post, most solutions I come across tend to be between 10 and 15 projects including test projects. Anything higher than 20 is time to review and reconsider the design.
The most ridiculous thing was that Visual Studio struggled (unsurprisingly) to keep running. So brilliant suggestions flowed forth - such as doubling the amount of RAM on each PC, fitting SSD drives, changing the methodology from Agile to Waterfall (why that would help I have no idea?), and finally removing required functionality from the requirements documents because of the difficulties getting anything done because the architecture was extremely brittle and fragile.
Anything and everything except dumping the solution and building it properly.
Ah well, at least I can laugh about it all now with only a small dose of medication
When I come to you point. Well I don't blame on TDD. I blame the team who wrongly practicing it. Off course, if anyone who abuse the methodology will eventually fail.Same is true for OOP, Design Patterns so on so forth.

Agree, it just a matter of making the best robust product. TDD will contribute it's share and most importantly it's alive.
Me neither, but an awful lot of development teams are - you can find yourself being hunted down by the Coding Inquisition[^] (and all their cunning instruments of torture) by not covering one obscure line of code with a unit test.

That's exactly my point! While there a few organisations who have got it right, the vast majority are abusing various methodologies - they just don't realise it. Every place has it's own implementation/interpretation made up to suit themselves. Surely they can't all be right?
The "religion" angle is basically a defensive mechanism to prevent anyone questioning why things are being done in a certain (often illogical) way - a bit like the old days of shouting "heretic" at anyone who was deemed a threat.
O proud left foot, that ventures quick within
Then soon upon a backward journey lithe.
Again, once more the gesture, then begin;
Command sinistral pedestal to writhe.
Commence thou then the fervid Hokey-Poke.
A mad gyration, hips in wanton swirl.
To spin! A wilde release from heaven's yoke.
Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl.
The hoke, the poke--banish now thy doubt
Verily, I say, 'tis what it is all about.

Ok so I'm bored, taking a break from EdX Linux class. I've done 12 chapter since last night.
Have you ever just looked at someone and knew the wheel was turning but the hamster was dead?
Trying to understand the behavior of some people is like trying to smell the color 9.
You've gotta be shitting me! When did that happen? Why hasn't anybody mentioned it before?

Before take off the stewardess explained that it was illegal to smoke during the flight. The toilets where fitted with smoke detectors and it was illegal to tamper with the smoke detectors. She then said "I you really need to smoke you can do so outside."
(no she didn´t meant it as a joke and she wasn´t really aware of what she just said)
Time ago I bought some touch screen displays to another provider in the USA, it ended in tears as they did not send us the material working as expected, it was all disassembled and we had to pay before receiving the displays. All in all we lost a lot of money.
Now I need again a solution that is lightweight, that's open-frame, touch screen, 12", 16:9, ... and I found the people at Caltron[^] which look promising.
Have anyone here worked with them before or know references about them?
After seeing Richards response in this thread [^]I am prompted to ask whether rooting a phone is considered hacking.
I am under the impression rooting the phone will give you back the ability to control the apps installed and running on you phone/fondleslab. I find it alarming that when I clear memory it tells me 25 apps have been closed. Not being able to uninstall Youtube and all the Samsung crap on my phone is irritating.
So what else does rooting the dammed thing do (other than potentially turning it into a brick) that may be considered hacking.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
Lots of people confuse hacking with criminal behavior when they are two different things. I don't see anything wrong with rooting your own phone. Now if you were trying to root other people's phone so that you could steal from them, that's another matter.
The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
Commonly speaking, hacking is anything that changes the modification of the product from the manufacturers specifications.
So just the act of rooting the phone could be considered hacking and anything extra is just apart of that hacking.
However, do not get drawn up on the term hacking. Hacking is cool because of what you can you with it. Rooting your phone allows you the access to change or add pretty much anything onto your phone's system.
Android is open-source so it already has or can get a lot of software features without rooting the system (which most times voids the warranty). However, if you really wanted to get out of the default manufacturers experience, you can root and this gives you a phone without any manufacturers limitations.
Some things you can do without the limitations are installing mods and/or root apps onto your system. What makes these apps different from your regular apps, that you can get on the marketplace without rooting your phone, is what that apps can do.
My favourites for Samsung phones are SD Booster, Full!screen, Wanam Xposed, Greenify, and for your Samsung crap Root Uninstall.
SD Booster improves the speed of SD cards from increasing the cache memory used in the read/write process. It also can remember the settings of specific SD cards, useful, if you have more than one SD card.
Full!screen gets rid of the bottom control bar. Some people like the bar, I don't.
Wanam Xposed is a speed and system tweaker. It has a lot of features that I found useful like the build-in call recorder.
Greenify (My favourite) is a speed tweaker. It hibernates heavy handed applications that hog your system resources.
Root Uninstall is a (wait for it) uninstalling application. It allows you to clean up the Samsung junk and Youtube if you really want to.
Now those were only a few, there are thousands of applications only meant for rooted phones. Just make sure that the app is safe. From rooting your phone you are making it extremely easy to install a mod and/or app that will fry your system in an instant.
Hope this answers your question,
PS. Most people root their phone to install paid applications for free. Being a developer making such applications, I don't condone this. While I do understand there will always be some piracy, I do want people to make the right decision. So we developers can still make outstanding applications or improve existing ones.
So my laptop is plugged into the mains charging and I get up to turn the light off with my left hand whilst holding the laptop in my right. As I flick the switch I get a shock in my hand touching the light switch followed immediately by another shock in the hand holding the laptop which is attached to the mains.
Sounds like you have plenty of sparky parts already!

Something is not properly grounded (I think your side of the pond calls it 'earthed'). IIRC, the UK uses 230 VAC 50 Hz, with both lines as live, and a ground. My first suspect would be your laptop PSU or plug not being grounded, or the outlet it is plugged into not being properly grounded the first is a job for the computer guys, and second is a job for your Sparky.
This is not a good thing, current passes through the path of least resistance and it can be as little as (again IIRC) about 20 ma of current flow to stop the heart which, coincidentally, is about halfway between those outstretched hands.
Anyone worked with RFC 3080[^] or 3081[^]?
I started to implement my Beep library and would really love to have someone to check what I do, and eventually tell me where I possibly misinterpreted the specs...
Yes, I'm having a nice expanded weekend due to Swiss' national July 4th today.
Apart from that, the army is going well and I might even get a promotion to be a Sergeant Major, and Chief Sergeant Major later.
Plus, I'm strongly thinking about joining the KFOR[^] after March next year, for a 6 months duty.
