You should not need to create a keyword for the most common state of play (e.g. many languages have unsigned as a modifier but few have signed as most numbers are signed). So, based on the programs that I have seen and virtually all of the ones that I have written, we need a modifier / attribute for the exceptional situations. I, therefore, suggest [NotAbsurd] or, in extreme cases, [Sensible].
This would save having to litter the source with redundant [Absurd] attributes / qualifiers
Spreading the joy, as I have started a new project. Now comes the hard bit finding something to do as most of the people have run away from it... the hard bit is there is no definition of what it's supposed to do or why. There is a lack of testable stuff, also no mention of what OS is to run on the 104, hence the question last night about M$ embedded. I think it will be some version of Wind River going by previous experience.
Microsoft announced a significant reorganization of its Windows business back in March.
The organizational changes mean that Joe Belfiore, who has been the face of Windows Phone in the past, is taking on more of the important consumer-facing parts of Windows.
So the guy who killed the [at that time] largest mobile phone manufacturer, sorry, couldn't sell the ms phone, sorry in plain words, has demonstrated a history of having no clue what people want now gets to be in charge of the consumer facing facet of windows?? FFS
Why don't they just come out and say they are killing windows, instead of [just like the phone] have a lot of people suffer when it [probably very soon] falls down.
hmm, ape-pol, klome-ass or linuts? (start with the cheap Chinese version in case first choice is wrong.)
This internet thing is amazing! Letting people use it: worst idea ever!
Don't forget that prior to the takeover Nokia was having major problems due to the huge uptake of the iPhony - they weren't selling their "traditional" phones and didn't have a good smartphone that could compete. And the Windows Phone wasn't bad (though bits of it were pretty atrocious) - it just wasn't marketed as slickly as Apple did their overpriced tat!
But trying to make your desktop look like a phone nobody wanted to buy in the hope you might buy the phone was never going to be a good idea.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

The reason we run Windows is because we develop on it.
In the past we developed on it because everyone was on it.
So, once we can develop software elsewhere, why would we stay on Windows?
Once there is no Windows there is no reason to develop apps for it.
Once there are no apps for Windows we will all move to other OSes where we are also developing apps.
This is all very circular. Or maybe it's a spiral, actually?
It seems to be the Windows death spiral.
