I know exactly what you mean. In a mature world, we should be able to post your post all day long, smile, laugh and enjoy each other's company. But some people can't hear the T word without making it political, and CP isn't exactly knowing for maturity. It happened in this thread. It'll continue to happen.
Due to past misdemeanors, I am using MATLAB these days. In their standard libraries is a inputdlg function that lets you enter simple unvalidated values; very useful when there is no need for a complex form.
Now I simply wanted to be able to position it; in my case I wanted to place it above the control on the UI that called it. On their support pages are lots of people asking the same questions and their response - you can't!
You can be sure the Hobbit would want to super-size.
«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
I think it would have been sometime around 1990, someone gave me a floppy disk containing a course called "Memory Master" - it was a short (6/7 page) text document that taught you how to use mnemonic tags to remember anything from a list of words to the order of a shuffled deck of cards. Something that many seem to think requires a book, a CD and a life-time subscription.
I have seen it on the internet in years gone by but needless to say, the phrase "Memory Master" has now become attached to all sorts of things, related and otherwise and it's become a bit of a "needle in a haystack" exercise trying to find a copy for a friend.*
This is a bit of a long shot, but did anyone else ever come across this and happen to know where to find it?
*I won't discount the possibility that I was so busy memorising playing cards at the time that I've forgotten the correct name of the document!
Sudden Sun Death Syndrome (SSDS) is a very real concern which we should be raising awareness of. 156 billion suns die every year before they're just 1 billion years old.
While the military are doing their part, it simply isn't enough to make the amount of nukes needed to save those poor stars. - TWI2T3D (Reddit)
