Yeah, I was vaguely aware of that. It's one of those funny exceptions like ThreadAbortException and the stuff of body bags.
It's not immediately obvious to me though why it cannot be caught, perhaps to do with the limits on the stack trace/unwindability? Particularly in the managed world you'd think it could be handled gracefully. But then, is the stack checked by the CLR (surely) or does this rely on some more fundamental interrupt based or other such approach? Using a counter to detect recursive level is filthy.
I agree - and that it worked in V1.0 but doesn't in V2.0 and above kinda says "we let the intern do this bit via Stack Overflow". And then rather than fix it they document the problem and call it a feature that the class has become completely useless ... I guess it's cheaper to document things than to fix bugs.
Leaves a nasty taste, this one.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

Probably because like with an out of memory error on the heap it can't guarantee that there will be sufficient ram available to do the required error processing.
Theoretically they could preallocate enough ram to handle the cleanup/etc at process startup, but after the J++ fiasco they're unwilling to copy features from Java.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

I took two weeks to find a bug in the CString class in MFC, and microslop said they weren't going to fix it.

I guess you haven't play with WPF, specifically XAML, or may be you have. The thing gives me the creep. It sometimes works, sometimes not. Sometimes it give errors not even related to what you were making changes.
I'm on there, too. It says over 2000 downloads...nobody's buying, though. LOL
Also: Weird, the price is listed as $37.14 rather than the $29.95 I set on Amazon.
Noit the first time I've seen that. Depending on which computer I use, I'll either see the real price, or something totally bizarre with no explanation. I think it's being converted to/from a different currency and not translating well, but I don't know if it's Amazon doing it or what.
We won't sit down.

Softpedia cnet and the like are old software listing sites, which don't really promote your software. You get some exposure but don't expect too much
there are sites like bitsdujour that give you a platform for a 1-day 50% sale, which will give you some income and an audience for a time. There are also some 100% giveaway of the day kind of sites, but my experience with them was dismal. But it could work for you
