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.
About four and a half years ago I went to the animal shelter to get a cat.
That wasn't very hard because actually you picked me.
I could pet you and you seemed to like it, which never happened since you were in there.
Your caretaker even asked me if I was sure I wanted you a couple of times because you were difficult and needed some serious socializing.
I took you home, but it took you a few months to get used to the new environment and to me.
Nevertheless, slowly you let me pet you, you came closer to me and one fine night you even jumped into bed with me.
Since then, we slept, ate and watched tv together.
I'm so proud of how much you changed.
Unfortunately, your journey ended today, at age 11, after a three week battle with cancer.
I had to let you sleep in, which was the hardest decision in my life.
I'm really sad you're gone, but I'm also really thankful we've had this time together.
Good night, dear Nika.

Because inquiring minds want to know, in case you've ever wondered, when you reach Level 100 in Microsoft's Klondike Solitaire, you are awarded the title of "Klondike Grandmaster." Don't ask me how I know that...
Maybe you could find some volunteer work where you can help someone. You won't be bored and your time will be spent productively.

after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
But that is way too mathy for me. I like math but I like it to be applied. Anyways, I wanted to really see Big O explained and tied to specific algorithms. I wanted to start out relative simply but not treat me like I'm totally ignorant. I stumbled upon this book from the Pragmatic Programmer publishers...
I devoured the first 4 chapters and it is amazing. Definitely check this one out. I'm so excited about it. I feel like I'm really putting the concepts together. This one is going into the Top 5 All-time Best books on programming. Seriously up there with Petzold Windows programming.
After reading those first 4 chapters I actually understand what O(1), O(N), O(log N) and O(N^2) mean. I even understand them in relation to algorithms. The author connects them to the algos and shows graphs of time / efficiency and it is absolutely clear and interesting.
(I'm sure it's like this many places) Algorithms was one of my Campus' Crush-the-soul-of-the-CS-student classes, second to x86 assembly. The Professor was fantastic though, and was passionate about the topic.
Now you've got me wanting to dust of my Alg book... and maybe read it within a salt circle.
If you really want to learn just post some articles or questions and show your code and there will be plenty of people pointing out what you did wrong. I mean pointing out how you can write better code.
