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.
In the last 2 jobs I have been to, I saw a pattern... A pattern should warn against and I am wondering what could be done...
In both case there are application with lots of man hours and developer and moving part dependant on each other and developed (and, more importantly, updated) independently....
And it happens every now and then that some code that was once working fine stop doing so because one of it dependency started to behave differently... And lots of time is spending not adding and fixing new code but updating old one to fight what could be called new bug affecting old code.
This can be a real time waster...
How long do you expect to heap one sinister hack upon another without getting into trouble? Or has anyone ever sucessfully built a skyscraper on top of something that started out as a wooden shack, nailed together by some kids decades before?
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.
The most fascinating thing is that when new code developed - and destroyed old code - it passes QA (at least here), but because no one knows about the relation between this and that in the complicated landscape, the bug happily installed in customer's site... So not only they discover it (which look bad), but we have to fix it under pressure (SLA), so we obviously will introduce more bugs - one of them will be to run the new code

The question no one ever asks in the No Deal Scenario is: What about the backstop!
It has in that case, it has not gone away, you know. The UK , and those who want to leave represent the world as a one dimensional monetary system. The EU has more to loose from missing a trade deal than the UK! The EU does simply not think that way. It considers solidarity with small countries such as Ireland far more important than any trade deals or financial advantage.
If the UK leaves without a deal, the Backstop, the rights of EU Citizens and, the 39 Billion divorce bill will still stand. The EU will simply refuse to enter into any further trade talks, until these issues are settled. The UK can blockade the UK with tariffs.
There is something amiss in the English Education System if so many people cannot comprehend the choices in front of them. There is more wrong in the british electoral system if we find ourselves of politicians against people at large.
I predict that Brexit has been conclusively wrecked, as has, to my great joy, the conservative party!
