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.
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.
1. As matter of fact, OOAD concepts and functional programming are both dated. Lately there's some interest in the features of functional programming, that's true.
2. I like it but I don't fully understand it. That is often I am not able to see how my job would be easier using functional programming.
Functional programming is loved mainly by eggheads, like my boss who has a degree in mathmatics. He also loves VB, so take that as a reference however you like.
Long ago, I was tortured with LITHP and Scheme by egghead professors. Twice. That's enough for the rest of my life and I can easily live with not ever having to see that stuff again. Maybe aliens from Ceti Alpha love it, but I also suspect it's the reason why Ceti Alpha Six exploded.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
Specifically I hate all of you who thought it would be a good idea to push an update - which I've been studiously ignoring because I know what will happen - without permission?
I use a set of documents - DOCX and XLSX - on a regular basis. For example, I keep "Thought of the day" as a DOCX file so I have a bunch ready to go, and can check that I aren't duplicating (too much)
So I pin them to the taskbar list.
And despite loads of reports from me and others who find it irritating, the Taskbar icons and their associated lists (both recent and pinned) are destroyed by your updates. Every. Single. Time.
That's irritating, but when I decide to go for an update, I can take a screenshot, and restore my lists after the update.
When you push a Elephanting update on me and don;t elephanting ask first I can't. So I lose them. Which is not just irritating, it's elephanting annoying. OK, I can work it out using folder contents and some of them via your "recent files" - but since DOCX and XLSX, OTT, ODT, and UncleTomCobley files are mixed in there without any care for the app that created them it doesn't help as much as it should.
Go and die in a fire.
