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.

AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
I went ahead and got the Roku, and we're all set up.

Now the channel setup. Getting rid of the pre-picked junk and putting in useful stuff.
If you happen to get more ROKU's and register them to the same account then when you add an item to one you add it to all (but not necessarily logins, if any!). Mine are actually shut off when not in use (they suck a surprising amount of power) and are powered on/off with the TV through a smart power strip. Because of this, it goes through its startup routine every time which, aside from the visible dancing Roku includes looking for updates and downloading any new channels you added to any other Roku devices.
The ROKU (top) level search is skewed towards paid-stations and they almost certainly get a nice kickback.
Weather4US is a good (handy) weather channel if you just want the weather.
A lot of the remainder becomes personal taste. One last note, however, is that there are "private" channels available for Roku. What "private" means is that it's not in Roku's built-in selection list. They still connect up the same way and are, to some extent, know and authorized by Roku. If they don't like a channel for some reason they get disappeared from your selections without a word. I've lost a few that way.
Bought a new computer Tuesday!
In fact I am super happy with my acquisition, spent 1 hour scrutinizing Officeworks website.. Ordered online, go it today, sweet!
The beats is sleek, and slim, and fast (for its purpose)! nice!
However, it comes with plenty of pre-installed uselessware, like antivirus. So I presto remove them (antivirus only cause me grief and never did any good) but I got struck by a vague remorse, could it be that today's antivirus are ok?
I.e. they don't spend time vampirising all your machine performance...
It was McAfee Live Safe that I just removed.
What say you?
I'm using Kaspersky, so far it's the easiest on the CPU and does not break compatibility with old games or software. Also it's completely local, as opposed to Sophos that went cloud and now is configurable only through an Internet connection, is a cpu hog and will make some software fail silently without any possibility of excluding them.
NortNot and McCoughee are laughable, BitDefender came highly recommened and it basically killed two computers that I own so I avoid it, Avast and AVG became worse than the threats they supposedly protect from.

I've read various reviews to that effect, so I stopped paying for one. But I have to run periodic scans myself. Not that it should find anything if it's doing its job properly in the first place, but you never know. I haven't noticed a way to schedule this automatically but am probably missing something.
Erlang - maybe not mainstream or popular anymore, but the basis of RabbitMQ.
Perl - Also still being used.
Objective-C - Also still being used.
I think sometimes people just write articles for the sake of it and have very little idea of what's actually being used in industry, especially when it comes to the popularity of programming languages.
