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.
Another technical metal piece this week.
Nothing too heavy, mostly clean vocals, but still plenty of guitars and drums.
They're heavily influenced by Meshuggah and Textures who both have been in the SOTW before.
I wasn't a fan of TesseracT, but I read an interview last week and decided to give them another go.
I really like this song and now I can't wait for their new album, Sonder, to be released.
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 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
Forgot my password, had to reset it.
Discover this unfriendly rule: "Please choose a password that you haven't used before. To help protect your account, you need to choose a new password every time you reset it."
This is age-ism! How could we, us old gizzard, remember a brand new password every time we forgot the old one?!
This seems to be "an universal question" ...
a belgian flemish rock band singing in dialect about the same problem ...
the title of the song translates to
"do you find my bum not too big in this skirt" ...
(hilarious as it is made by comedian guys ...)
I think it is misleading [^] as although you don't 'see her till late, the car should have other mechanisms other than 'sight' to be able to detect her. It does debunk the earlier theory I saw in here where they said a human driver would be aware of someone near the road - you literally don't see her.
I must admit I was a little skeptical of all 'human killed by robot stuff' (humans have been killed by robots before, uprising was not triggered). From the looks of it was someone crossing a road that wasn't busy at night wearing black while not paying attension. Darwin potential?
But that may be down to the quality of the video - you can't judge from that what a human in the car could see. But yes, as the selling point of these vehicles is their improved safety and efficiency over humans, one does rather feel they failed here.
Having said that, I find the various remarks by the victim's family to be somewhat distasteful - I get the distinct impression their first instinct is about how much money they can get out of this rather than grief for their relative.
