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.
Now that I am working at home all the time, why do I have a screen saver lock on my work PC. Is my cat going to compromise the systems ? I saw where someone had put a mouse in a box with a motor to keep the screen saver from engaging -- seems too hard. I also saw an app for the iPhone called Mouse Mover. Does anyone know if this works ? I can't plug an iPhone into a work computer, but Keyboards and Mice are OK.
This had been recurring problem where I work so I wrote my own screen save controller and disabling the screen saver is one of its options. This was really easy to write - there are only a few API functions that are used to control the screen saver. There is bound to be something similar available at this site already.

If you have power point installed, an empty presentation should do the trick.
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.

My electric bill is going to go up.
The only thing that was on during the day was my refrigerator.
Now I have my entire network to power up.
And the refrigetor is opened alot more.
And the coffee maker has to work harder to keep up with me.
And on a slightly more serious note...
My medication dosages are too low- sitting at home on the couch I am not getting the exercise I normally do at the office. The numbers I have compiled show I need about 17% more insulin than normal.
