One obvious question though - where would one typically find the sort of language learning files that users would be expected to use with your app? That would be a big part of its potential success. If you know of a repository for such files, that would undoubtedly be very useful.
I am not the idiot that you apparently I think I am. I did not say I wanted to sell it. I just thought somebody else might find it useful. And It is hard to make money on something like this anyway with all the free stuff around. Unfortunately it will not translate well into a mobile app and the features would not be that useful in a phone. It is in WPF so that sort of kills its mobile app capability anyway. What is nice is that you can sort of work on you language in the background while also having quick access to the app. I realize that you can get some features with VLC, but I use VLC strictly for video, and a lot of media players are designed to support video, which means that they are not optimized for audio. And being rather specialized, not something most people would be interested in anyway. And try to use the space bar for WMP. It is not consistent. You have not seen the app, so you are making a lot of assumptions. Are you always like this...so negative.
(clearly, you can tell I'm not married and have not gone through those proceedings...)
Nor am I. I value my mental health.
What have I missed? This is all your stuff you've already paid for.
Of course that's a ridiculous plan, but when you are married you have to live with such drama anyway, even if you are a saint and did not do anything at all. So why not have a little fun and actually be guilty?
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
So, I'm about to release a new website. Over the past few years I've gotten used to using polyfills to handle older browsers like IE11 for public sites, but the more and more polyfills I tack on to a site for compatiablity the slower IE11 is running. Yes, it supports flexbox and also a basic CSS grid, so I can get IE11 to work-ish if I need to. My question is though, how many of y'all are still targeting IE11 for publicly accessible sites? I've made this site work in IE11, but still...
The latest stats I've seen suggest IE is still used for approximately 6% of desktop traffic and about 3% of all web traffic (if you combine desktop and mobile). But is making your site bloated for 3% of people really worth it... I used to think so, but with WASM down the road, etc. I mean for real... it's time IE died.
Agreed on all points 100% man. If this site wasn't a pay, for-profit site... I'd dump it like right now. There's that crazy part of me I can't let go of that says... what about that 3%. lol This will be the last site I make that supports it though... ever. Even Bootstrap 5 is dropping in-built support for it, it needs to die. Not sure if I should say this publicly, but I just did a contract for Amex and they still wanted a in-house product to support IE11... like internal here... not public.
What's the stats like for CP? I'd reckon most of us devs have dumped it along time ago, so like 0.000001% I'd bet.

Likewise. How's the kids? Still on a Mac running Windows?
The irony here is... I'm the Mac fanboy but yet I'm on a PC. What is this world coming to? You hear about Apple Silicon? They're switching back to RISC (via ARM this time) processors like in the olden days. Except now Windows will still run on ARM so we're still good on the dual boot front. Never thought we'd see the day.

Know anyone who would love nothing better than to convert a WebForms site with roughly 300 web controls over to something better? Blazor and .NET 5? I mean: how hard could it be, really?
Hah... sure man. Just ask any rookie PM... all you need to do is press that shiny magic button to fix everything. That's what the sales pitch said.
Last I heard was no more bootcamp. Craig Federighi said pure virtualization is the path forward from here on in. "These hypervisors can be very efficient, so the need to direct boot shouldn’t really be the concern.”
If they can truly make virtual Windows as fast as native then that's a huge win.
