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.
I did a chicken jalfrezi from this website. It was a lot better than anything you get in an indian restaurant. Its a good site, I was put on to it by an Indian guy in Toronto when I was over there a few years back.
Good idea - I don't eat enough pizza (sacrilege for a developer, I know, I know) to make it worth the effort of building one! Hence this thing - I tried it on a frozen pizza and it did the base pretty well, though the topping was ... um ... typical for a frozen pizza.
Hopefully it'll do a good job on a home made jobbie.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
I'm still on ff v56, before they went with the multi process thing, whatever.
Option: Updates blah: I've chosen "Never check for updates"
... not the 'auto update,' not even the 'check and ask if I wannit', I chose NEVER check.
and every time I start Firefox a friendly message at the top:
Your Firefox is critically out of date. An update is required to stay secure.
Firstly, what part of NEVER means please check if there are updates?
Secondly: the version I have is [set] beyond secure enough for what/where I go; what part of 'don't make up bullshit' do they not understand?
Once upon a time only microsoft did this stuff, now it's normal business everywhere.
May be time to move back to a version in the 40's/30's - see if that stupid message (and ignoring peoples settings) is in even older versions.
Sigh, guess I shouldn't complain too much, not as if I'm on thebleeding edge.
Signature ready for installation. Please Reboot now.
Pretty much all of my system are stopped at 56 because the changed the interface for the plugins. As a result, one of my favorite (non-passive, like an ad blocker) is FireFTP. The author decided not to modify it to their new methodology. I could use any of lots of other FTP clients, but this is so handy.
As an FYI for browser-dom candidates. I hung with seamonkey for years, until they made cookie-handling an absolute nightmare. Here are references to very-compatible options[^]
I just realized - with the amazing powers and abilities of their ubiquitous search engine and all the plugins so eagerly snatched up by web-(designers/developers) that Google will be able to make it turn up on webish things that 'ogle' is the new 'd'.
I certainly understand where you're coming from - and the parentage clearly point in that way. However, at present, Bing hardly makes its way to the second circle of hell. Essentially, it is because no one would notice much or for long if it just went away.
