The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
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.
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.
A friend of mine has two tickets to the 2020 Super Bowl in Miami, box seats. He paid $11,500 each.
They come with limo service from and back to the airport, lunch, dinner, and up to a $400 bar tab.
Also an authorized pass to the winner's locker room.
He did not realize last year when he bought them, that the game was going to be on the same day as his wedding.
If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place.
It's at St. Paul's Church in Ocala at 3 PM. Her name is Ashley.
She's 5'4", about 125 lbs., and a good cook. She loves to fish and hunt.
She will be the one in a white dress.
yeah, it looks interesting. It definitely has a different feel than other Star Trek properties...

Browser wars are probably not over, despite MS now using Chromium as Edge's rendering engine...but I think we've reached a point where it's the small things that matter.
Case in point:
When you have multiple tabs opened in IE (yes, IE) and close one, the next one before it momentarily resizes itself so its Close button is repositioned right under the mouse cursor...so if you want to quickly close the current and previous 2 tabs, you can quickly click the mouse button without moving the actual mouse. If you close a tab then don't do anything else, the remaining tabs will then resize themselves to something reasonable after a second or two.
None of the other browsers I've tried do that (and granted, I don't spend a lot of time trying out different browsers or extensions). If I close a tab, I have to move the mouse to reach each tab's Close button.
Granted, you can close tabs from left to right without moving the mouse, but new tabs generally appear to the far right, so as I'm backtracking through my current browsing session, I tend to close tabs from right to left...
True...but more often than not, I want to take a 1- or 2-second look at the next page that came up. I don't always know ahead of time what's to the right or left of the current tab, and may want to keep something opened...
I've never liked that. It's non-intuitive. Particularly when my system was generating two mouse clicks whenever I clicked once. [ I believe I eventually tracked the cause down to a KVM switch I was using, but still, highly irritating to have tabs disappear because of it. ]
