Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
The code example by Icaza is kind of "scary," though. Over twenty aliases for System.IntPtr. Clearly, he doesn't like to declare variables the "usual" way; I also find his use of lower-case aliases for Types that would usually have an initial upper-case letter (or use camel-casing) ... strange.
However, looking at that code, it does appear "consistent," and I assume part of his motivation for writing in this format has to with the multi-platform aspect of it.
«There is a spectrum, from "clearly desirable behaviour," to "possibly dodgy behavior that still makes some sense," to "clearly undesirable behavior." We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
We had no air conditioning as the system actually hadn't been finished at the time the rest of the house was, and we weren't told that (which I believe is a Fort Wayne Construction Code Violation). We just got it fixed, and now there is no power to the outlets in the garage, where our modem is.
I checked each outlet, and found a single outlet next to the Water Heater and Furnace that had power, and jerry rigged a system to power the modem with an extension cord and a power strip. And yes, it works.
We have an electrician coming tomorrow to figure out the power issue, so this is only a temporary measure (it's probably not code compliant, anyways )
What do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?
The metaphorical solid rear-end expulsions have impacted the metaphorical motorized bladed rotating air movement mechanism.
