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.

age of real-time, age of virtual faces,
age of storm-surge of perfect spilling
over imagination's floodwalls to drown
imperfection with images so far beyond
nightsweat's fear memories must recuse
themselves to avoid insanity's verdict
here is the shadow of a forgotten body
singing in a dance of fingers clicking:
a child, lost in the new meme's parade,
holding a broken toy other people told
him was a life in the digital eternity
where he'd never face lonely's sorrows
all of the old now the roadbed for the
machinery of always ever new to travel

«While I complain of being able to see only a shadow of the past, I may be insensitive to reality as it is now, since I'm not at a stage of development where I'm capable of seeing it. A few hundred years later another traveler despairing as myself, may mourn the disappearance of what I may have seen, but failed to see.» Claude Levi-Strauss (Tristes Tropiques, 1955)</
My review is situated precisely at the origin of Randall's graph, even though we were supposed to see 90% totality from our location (Dayton, Ohio, USA).
In true Murphy style, I managed to be scheduled into meetings during most of the eclipse. It wasn't terribly disappointing, however, since the local sky was completely overcast during the entire non-event.
Well, we all knew he was going to croak sooner or later...

The animals were given a six-month stay of execution when they were rescued from the farm at Milton Lilbourne.
But, having been reared for meat, they were then slaughtered and delivered as sausages to the fire station team, which barbecued them.
Don't you know that PETA is short for People Eating Tasty Animals??!!!??

I think this can be found on iphones too because I have been observing some BYOD iphones on networks reaching out to China servers. I was wondering what the heck could possibly be going on.
"Google pulls 500 apps that used the Igexin SDK

Mobile developers, listen up: when you pick up that easy-to-use advertising API, make sure it's not snoopware.
That's the lesson, the take-out, or (god have mercy on my soul) key learning from work by security outfit Lookout, whose analysis of the Igexin advertising SDK ended with hundreds of apps returning “not found” on Google Play.
So while I'm waiting for TFS to download a whole new branch...
I would think that the best way to manage releases is to have a single development branch (maybe short lived branches there while WIP is occurring), maybe some QA branches, whatever, and a single "main" branch. When a release is made, main is updated, then a branch for that release version is made in case hot fixes need to be made.
The idea being, the developers always work on the development branch. Easy-peasy.
But no. Here, we have different developer branches for every release. And I because I keep VS solutions with projects pulled from here and there and the SLN is not version controlled (that's a whole other issue as to why, let's just say the SLN files everyone else uses are so bloated with projects, and the equipment is so archaic, that it takes 30 seconds for Visual Studio simply to figure out that there are no changes to 100 projects...)
Anyways, I now have to remap the projects in my custom solutions to new "developer" branch folders (granted, that's a problem I can mitigate.)
And of course, what's worse is, I was informed Monday, "oh, we forgot to tell you that your work should now be checked in to the "Dev_A" branch for this, and the "Oct17" for that.
