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.
Dutch rap! Yes, it's Dutch, most of you won't get it
His name is "Little Crane Daddy" and the song is named "Kind of a thing" (or something like that).
Kraantje Pappie is pretty popular in the Netherlands, but I must confess I never heard his music until last week.
So I heard this song last weekend and yes, it is kind of a thing!
Pretty fast rapping, a good beat and I'm listening to Kraantje Pappie
So enjoy the song, or at least have a laugh at the (to you) guttural Dutch language
Did you ever wonder why a single Ninja in a movie is almost invincible while they drop like flies when a whole army of Ninjas comes? Analogous to energy, Ninjutsu can neither be created nor destroyed. If there is only one Ninja present, all the system's Ninjutsu is concentrated in him, making him invincible. When there is a whole army of them, each Ninja only gets a small share of the Ninjutsu and we all know how that ends.
While driving to work this morning, I wondered why everything goes well up to a certain number of cars on the road. After that critical point they all begin to drive like drunken monkeys. Is this yet another conservation law or do we really need the proper amount of Ninjutsu to get to work?
"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."
If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
You can always take profit of the Ninjitsu and run over the cars.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I'd walk if I only had that far to go. I don't get too much choice with my commute: I can't drive (and wouldn't drive to work even if I could, the route is Hellishly congested) and cycling to where I work would require a far, far braver man than myself.
As such, it's a train with some walking at either end - which would be nice if the train were of adequate size and prone to turning up occasionally (sadly, it's neither) but at least I get to read stuff on the way, so the time isn't completely wasted.
