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.
The thermostat light on the cooker failed yesterday - the food was fine, but you can't tell when the oven is ready - so I dismantled the cooker today to check the part I needed.
Then I found that on the manufacturers' site (they have quite a few, and there are three on just this one cooker, so I needed the right one) and ordered it.
Or at least, I tried to - the "add to basket" button did nothing at all.
Eventually, I switch from Chrome to Edge to order, and it works fine.
So I try to let them know - and apart from a toll-rate phone number, there is no way to contact them ...
Given that Edge is switching to the Chromium engine pretty soon, I have though at least some testing with the world's most popular browser would have been an idea, but obviously not ... their loss when nobody can order stuff, I guess. Lazy, lazy, lazy ...

Now the world has gone to bed,
Darkness won't engulf my head,
I can see by infra-red,
How I hate the night,
Now I lay me down to sleep,
Try to count electric sheep,
Sweet dream wishes you can keep,
How I hate the night.
Japan beat South Africa in the last World Cup but are unlikely to repeat that. Scotland had too much to do on the day. Wales ( my lot ) were back to dropping and fumbling , forward passes galore ( they actually got away with one of them ) Ireland need a complete work over. Just give NZ the cup.

As a not really math familiar individuum, every time I read a math related article and find some matrix formulas I need a mnemonic to imagine what is described there (if they refer e.g. to a matrix element like Aij). In german this mnemonic is "_Z_eile _z_uerst, _Sp_alte _sp_äter" what means "Row first, Column later".
What kind of mnemonic do non German speaking people use?
And yes; no the answer "not german speaking" do not need a mnemonic is out of question
It does not solve my Problem, but it answers my question
Yes, I think the convention of row-first is well established. Of course the underlying mathematics doesn't care where you spray them round the page.
I remember ordering as being the natural counting sequence
11 12 13 ...
21 22 23 ...
and it accords with the "across the row, down the column" summation in matrix multiplication. The mental image of two forefingers scanning like that is burned into my brain.
If only mathematicians could become zero-based. So often in matrix maths there are subscript expressions like p+q-1
