The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
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.
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.
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.
Yes, I use Anagram Solver - solves any anagram![^] when setting CCCs. I consider it cheating to use it solving them.
In this case, I picked esoterica then fed it to the solver. One of the possibilities was cateories (which I've never heard of). I think you can join the dots from there.

Our next door neighbour has taken to posting chocolate bars through our letter box; about a couple of dozen so far (mainly Mars bars plus a few Crunchies, Wispas and a twix).
This is on top of bowls and pans of dhal plus other food stuffs.
They are an odd couple but she has a heart of gold. They've only been there a few months and won't be there long as the place they are renting is on the market. They don't do this for anyone else in the street.
