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.
After an almost 4 month hiatus, I'm finally back to article writing. The last 4 months have been something of a nightmare turned reality, starting the week before Easter. Part of the hiatus involved my mother being diagnosed with heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. She's doing much better now, but it didn't look good for a while. First time diagnosis (at 89) for her, she hates going to the doctor, even though she used to be an OR nurse! Perhaps because she has been a nurse!
The other part of the hiatus involves me personally, and I'm happy to share, but you'll have to email me directly as the content is not really lounge appropriate (that'll raise some eyebrows!)
I consider everyone here to be part of my larger "digital community", and through the last 4 months I have also been graced with amazing community support where I live. I can't emphasize enough how important it is to be surrounded by loving friends during times of crisis. To paraphrase a cliche, keep your friends close and the crazies far, far away, in another galaxy.
While the emotional healing continues, I feel like I've finally regained enough of a foundation to stand on and start letting the creative juices flow again. I've really missed that!
Thanks for reading and thanks to Code Project for creating the connections to the people here that I relied on for some stability amidst all the turmoil, even though ya'll didn't know it.
So I'm working on this WCF service and I need to add Basic Authentication.
Search on the big wide internet and I find a question. On CodeProject. From myself in 2016.
Answered by myself a day later in 2016
I had the same, but that's bad.
Apparently you were once an expert in that area, but you forgot you even knew
I know I had the same problem some years ago and that it wasn't easy, that's why I decided to Google it right away
It's the day in which in NASA launched for the moon, I would have thought Bob would be happy there was the start of a program to reunite him to his brothers... For the landing give Bob a Helmet at least!
Okay the take off not as momentous as the landing but quote Buzz Aldrin "When you are sitting on top of the most powerful rocket mankind has produced, built by the lowest bidder, it focuses your attention!"
