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.
I went there in the 80s. It was all pretty disgusting with the exception of the sea food in Merida.
It was certainly nothing like the food you see today that is more Texmex. I didnt see one fajita, enchilada, or burrito. I saw chunks of meat encased in an inch of fat in gravy. Chicken mole (a truly vile mix of black chocolate, chillies and spices), and some rank meat on a corn tortilla that gave me the sh*ts for 3 days.
I ended up eating milanesa and rice, as the only edible food.
I am a big fan of real Mexican food too and definitely not the Tex-Mex stuff. Thankfully, I have found a couple of really good places around here. A few tacos and a good habanero sauce are my favorites. Preferably with a good cerveza or two.
