Then why stop there, why not show the whole film in shades of blue?

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

In a Skype interview yesterday I was asked the question are you GlennPattonInThePubAgain on code project to which my reply was 'Oh dear, umm yes' he then went into the article I wrote (good!) they know CP nom' de guer (not so good!), the real issue was I couldn't get my Skype to send a video image while I could see their image. Just wondering is this related to them using Skype for business and me using Skype for chav's on my Android....

Was it a blue moon? I have yet to have an interviewer demonstrate that they bothered to even do the minimal "in the cloud" research on me, leading me to the conclusion that all that hype about having an online profile because potential employers will do their research is just that, hype. And all but one has ever indicated that they even looked at my articles, even though at the top of my resume is a link to my CP profile as well as mention of several article awards. The rest, when explicitly asked, simply say "no", or worse, "no, what's Code Project?" Bubbles within bubbles. Don't these people ever get out into the "real world?"
I'm not sure, it was cloudy yesterday night! The most worrying thing is my name suffix, I might be put down as an 'over drinker' which I am not (most of the time), this guy seemed to be more of a technical guy than Human (lack of) Resources
For what it's worth I've had lots of people mention their CodeProject article resume as a big selling point in their interviews. It does happen!
I think you need to admit that you're simply so famous at this point that it's pointless looking up your online profile. It's actually probably time you dropped your last name and just used a single name like Bono or Cher.
Marc - I've gone through a couple of your articles and chased a few links. Frankly, you're going to scare people. It takes a rare breed to say, "Sh*t, this guy is like spooky, I could learn something from him." Instead, you get "Oh hell no, he knows more than me."
Have seen so often my nose bleeds, and I have to fight the fear urge.
