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.
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.
I bit the bullet and installed the FxCop Analyzer on my own pet home projects...
First I ended up with thousands of warnings
Plenty of them useless....
Well then I embraced the global warning suppression...
It is good, but annoyingly create a GlobaSuppression.cs, it is annoying because I would have edited the error.ruleset file instead, which would be better I guess (more prominent), and sometimes it can be tedious to find the annoying rule one want to suppress in the treeview manually...
after that it did find some vaguely less than desirable code. Yeah!
(Remark, I mean just that, not quite a bug, but less than desirable, like incorrect exception constructor or using string.ToLowerInvariant() which is problematic, advised to use ToUpperInvariant(), or use a TaskScheduler explicitely, or use Array.Empty<T>() instead of new T)
except it is sometimes quite tedious to review 87 warnings in 4 years old code while I got other things to do... (particularly as I am, for once, "productive"... I do not need one more excuse to procrastinate on the feature that defied me for almost 2 years so far... )
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
What I don't quite understand is why doesn't the software combine the pitch of the aircraft from the AI together with the vertical speed from the VSI and the airspeed to calculate whether the aircraft is at a dangerous angle of attack for a given airspeed.
I also wonder if a number of the software engineers protested and said it was a really bad idea but were overruled by management.
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
It's in the comments.
If they had taken data from more than one sensor in account they would have needed a procedure for how to handle contradicting sensor information, with a following change of the manual that would have turned it into a new model. With associated costs.
Traditionally we visited the tulip fields in the Noord-Oost polder, my favourite tulip was present again: Shared album - Google Photos[^]
This year not a lot of Japanese tourists, but mostly Germans.
Did they follow me after my visit to Aachen I wonder
I went for a bike ride around Lisse yesterday. Lots of Japanese tourists, boy friends dutifully photographing their ladies for Instagram and for the first time in NL I was fearful of the traffic while cycling. Flowers were nice but I wouldn't do it again on a public holiday.
I was thinking about the word "language", as in programming language. And then I was thinking about HTML and XML. These two are also called languages, but are they really?
I think to qualify as a language, something has to have procedural statements, not only declarative statements. It would be like a human language having only nouns but no verbs. It wouldn't be much of a language.
What do you think? Inquiring minds want to know.
The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
