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.
There's a rumour that Husqvarna had the sarcastic warning text on their chainsaws: "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals"
I strongly doubt that there is any truth in it, but funny nonetheless.
I am amazed to say that Neath Port Talbot council did just that between Monday and this morning - normally they leave it for six months so they can have nice big children of their own before they send a man with a bucket of tarmac ...

AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
My current employer (for how long but that another issue!) is trying to move to having all 'stuff' online (well lets give them some credit!) GIT was used to track some files (not source code!) and now are we use Sharepoint, first thing is this right, I was fairly certain we shouldn't use GIT but is Sharepoint the right thing to use?
Well it's my role,
In my experience trying to leave stuff your doing in a goodish shape
Karma aside... that's the difference between professionals and [fill the gap with your favourite word here, I just want to keep it respectful].
You don't do your work well for them, you do it for yourself. They pay you for it until the last day.
Ethics or fairness about the redundant job... that's another topic.
But I do respect your position here.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Well I have to admit, it's not my office thats caused it, it's the incompetance of those higher in the food chain, not knowing what or how we work. This has taught me a lesson though, take pride in what you personally do. I haven't been given the official chop yet, just notice. So the climate being what it is I am preparing for the worst. I think I would have left anyway, I wasn't really making use of the skills I have... Plus a comment from my employer saying I did shoddy work on my way out might not be nice!
