The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
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. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
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. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
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.
Tried this out, whatever they're using for the UI engine made my main desktop (second monitor) completely unresponsive -- anything dragged onto that monitor had black for its content, etc.
Between that and Acronis with it's utterly crap UI (I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to tell it, no, stupid, the backup disk is no longer on E:, it's now on H: and its stupid icons that you can't even mouse over to get some indication of what they mean ) all I want is a simple piece of software, with a STANDARD UI LOOK & FEEL not something made for a grandma with cataracts.
I think I'm just going to copy the files and folders my 2 SSD's onto the backup drive. Seems the simplest thing to do.[/edit]
How amusing. dxdiag says my driver version is 22.214.171.12431, and the download page from Intel has the latest version at 126.96.36.19903 (Latest), 6/23/2017. What, do they count down their version numbers?
I was scrambling to find disk imaging software night before last to clone my wife's drive (from new laptop) onto her old 120GB SSD.
I forgot that she had the old Kingston Xtreme SSD -- not the Samsung that comes with cloning software.
I stumbled upon the Marcrium site and got it working in mere minutes. I was very happy.
When I was originally researching and googled, I first got led to Acronis for the Kingston drive but my older SSD (serial number) wasn't supported for a free version.
Welcome to Agile. Too bad we are agile enough to dodge the daily standup. There is a collective cheer any time it gets cancelled. Why do we have to announce when nothing is "blocking" us? Wouldn't it be more Agile to only mention it if there WAS something impeding your progress.
Does my heart good to see Work on the end of your name.
I need to make a quotation to a customer and I've tried to start the job to see how it would be automating visual studio to reconfigure a running machine (hardware thing with a PLC and CNC that need to change the number of physical elements involved without needing a programmer there).
Given the PLC and CNC software is not prepared to do that, and that the software used to program all those things is embedded into Visual Studio... I've started a small program to reconfigure the items in the project automagically.
It seems it will work so I'll be capable to make a quotation for that customer.
Anyway, the C# editor is really nice.
I'm testing all those things in a console application and the way you can concatenate strings is also really nice...
I know you could overload the + operator in C/C++, but here it works out of the box already...
