I've closed Microsoft Word (or at least so I think) and I do something else for a while. I then press Alt+Tab only to realize Word is still hanging around, asking a stupid question like "Do you want to keep the blah-di-blah you copied in memory? It would just take a bit longer to exit if so, hehe, thx bye".
It would have taken far less time for word to have kept that whatever blob in the memory than the time it sat around asking me stupid questions. This particular dialog box needs an option "Do whatever you want with that blob in memory, NEVER ask me this again, and you owe me an apology".
It's like the pizza delivery guy is still hanging around your porch the next morning after you've paid for the delivery and tipped him well the PREVIOUS night because he needed to ask you if you would like him to store the pizza box you threw away last night. The answer is: Who cares?!
Hey Microsoft Office, just ***** exit, and disappear away when I tell you to.
OK, I'm getting my coat (oh wait, I never wear a coat).
I would like to see regular straw polls on technology/skills and whether people believe this is going to be a major thing in the future or not.
Then it would be cool to get the results out at regular intervals (say 1 year and after 5 years) and compare the straw poll results with the actual present. I would be interested to see how unpredictable the future in computing really is

"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I predict that Apple will introduce a Cranial Implant iPhone, which requires users to up upgrade their whole head every six months, or their IQ drops by 50% to save battery life...
Original Griff, you got it in one!
And please send a link to the article about the new apple headquarters that won tons of Design awards, but the employees keep walking into the glass walls, to all of the Apple sycophants that criticize your comment.
Maybe they will understand, finally, that function triumphs over form every time.
"Newer" is NOT automatically better, only Different. (And more complex and bug ridden when it comes to all of the "boutique" languages / frameworks out there)
There's several free polling sites out there. Google "create a poll" Several CP'ers have used SurveyMonkey in the past, I believe. People here seem to participate. You could then collate the results and make an article out of it.
