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.
When your article stretches out to four or more parts, it borders on a being a psychologically-damaging event. The real bummer is that it's looking like I won't be done with this crap before the world ends tomorrow...
And since I've mentioned the world ending thing, I'll provide Chris with one more item.
I hope everyone will have GOTTEN their affairs in order before tomorrow's big event.
".45 ACP - because shooting twice is just silly" - JSOP, 2010 - You can never have too much ammo - unless you're swimming, or on fire. - JSOP, 2010 - When you pry the gun from my cold dead hands, be careful - the barrel will be very hot. - JSOP, 2013

While humans are in control of the confines within which robots operate, there is hope for humanity. But, I shudder to think what will happen when we humans no longer control the boundaries in which robots operate.
When you bring up an issue to your boss, he listens & right from the first line you see a bad surprise on his face that conveys, he's completely unaware of the whole thing. Without acknowledging any of it, he waits till 90% is over & then say "Now you are talking" as if I brought up a great insight exactly @ 90:00 on the slider. And the rest of thing- he's already aware, Which is TRULY not. I totally dislike the lack of honesty in simple conversations. damn, these old corporate lions.
I first of all, I dislike these outdated phrases like "Now you are talking" But still better than the boss trying to pick phrases from newer movies & put them to use just to show he's still young and kicking.
When something happens like this, I imagine a 7 feet huge retired bear trying to speak in cute little teddies voice and be among them. Many times he ends up being the Elephant in the room. Oh wait, that's yet another over used idiom in our daily language.
Starting to think people post kid pics in their profiles because that was the last time they were cute - Jeremy Falcon.
Yeah bosses really enjoy underlings bringing them problems. Not!
Bring the solution. Of course next you have to explain what it solves; but (1) it shows you're thinking ahead = your win, and (2) he doesn't have to think about it himself or organise meetings etc = his win too.
