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.
I am using a low code environment (Mendix) and I have to add a constant to my application. However, the symbol for constant is the pi symbol. I suppose pi is constant if you could ever wrestle it down.
Seems like an odd choice of an icon for a constant.
I can tell its first seven decimals without looking it up. But that is irrelevant, anyway. I'm not saying that everyone know a lot of decimals of pi, but that the existence of pi is known all around the world, for several centuries.

Why? Unless your computer has unlimited memory, the set of the values it can store exactly will always be a tiny subset of the infinite set of values it can only approximate. Not to talk of the infinite set of values it can't store at all.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
