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.
In my continuing struggle to get stuff out the door, I came across a beauty my company has been running an eval of lens to fit our Cameras. These controllers have been in the field over 5 years. Looking over the test specs to retest the eval lens, I find no mention of the reset switch. So there is a reset switch by the Power connector, me, being me pressed said switch, nothing happens. Hold switch in nothing happens. Take cover off unit (with Torx screws) which a non-trivial, find a push button standing out for the PCB. So this approved unit has not been tested as there is a switch which does nothing (well it sends a logic level to the processor which ignores it). Raise a fault flag get dragged into three meeting for raising a fault flag with something that has been shipped! Yes it is safety critical!...
All you'd get with a politician is "Bribe me. bribe me. Please."
Or "echo, echo, echo, echo..."
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
