But do you have other parts of the country snickering at your area saying "Those idiots! They don't know how to drive in snow. Look at the poor fools having to shut down roads and school over a little snow."?
OK, your live in Canada you probably have acclimatised (spelling be hard) over the years, after all there is whole Discovery series tracking people that drive on a frozen lake with trucks(!). I live in the UK which gets paralysed by sigle flake! ( it's a joke but not much of one)
I'm acclimatized because I just don't know any better. I've come to know what to expect at this time of year in this region. Right now we've had a week of steady near-0 temperatures, and every day I'm finding excuses to try to spend some time outdoors because it's so nice.
I've been reading the Daily News email for many years - because it's great - and I often tweet the articles it highlights.
However, I rarely give credit to CodeProject for this, but I'd like to, so how should I do that? With a #CodeProject hashtag? Use the link that goes through CodeProject's servers (from the email with redirect)? Or is there a CodeProject page you have for each article mentioned (i.e. that may contain additional advertising?)
Each article has a 1 to 5 star rating at the top, which is a way to say "this is good" (5 stars) or "this is rubbish" (1 star).
Each article also has a forum at the bottom which lets you talk directly to the author and that means you can given personal thanks (or criticism) as you wish.
To thank the people who run it, put an atsign in front of the text "Chris-maunder" and say what you think of the site in this forum! The atsign acts as a "Person reference" and send them an email to indicate you directed it at them.

Sent you an email.
Be aware he may not respond too quickly, he is renowned for taking his time to work through his emails: I think he's up to 2007 already!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
I think you misunderstood what he was asking. I believe he is referring to the external articles linked to in the daily Insider News emails (or similar). When he shares them with the rest of the world (via Twitter), he wants to give credit to Code Project for having found the article in the first place and sharing it with him.

America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between. -Oscar Wilde
