Well, instead of acting like a gerbil, you could act like a lemming and jump off a cliff. Or, you could run to the nearest saloon and order as much beer as you can handle. Or, you could decide to go to bed because that was a stupid statement. When you die in the morning because the super-nova burned you to a crisp, you might have a split-second to think "Oh, I cudda had a V-8" (I hear its good for the hangover you might have had if you had time to have one.)
Kinda reminds me of the short-story where the moon was suddenly 10 times brighter. Everyone is enjoying the evening event except one guy who realizes right away this is his last night of life. Turned out half the planet died because of a superflare, not a nova and they were OK. Then the catastrophic weather killed everyone else, it just took a while to reach them. Real up-beat story.
Time and again we witness people desperately cross-posting the same query across multiple forums in the website. I trying to see if instead of reprimanding them why can't we have smart validation of 'similar'* messages posted by the same user in a 'specified'* time-frame.
* These can be configurable parameters based on user behavior and can be used as a valuable heuristic tool later.
And again I am not sure if this strategy would immediately befit as a site suggestion and hence initiating this brainstorming in Lounge.
Ive used a couple of the GoF pattens in my applications as well asread articles and books on them, i however want to find out from the rest of you guys where you used the patterns before?
So, if you could list examples or short descriptions where you have used the various Behavioral, Creational and Structural patterns inreal production applications that would be awesome!
Apologies for posting same thing in two places.
Christian mentioned that it would be better fitted in the lounge, thus me posting this general question here...
To be honest, I thougt it would make for a good discussion to see where people actually use te paterns in real business applications and their experience with it, but after reading some replies from the others i take it i am wrong.
Near as dammit for a first pass. Was just testing out the code signing etc. so didn't have a last minute panic!
My code is a mess and heavily fragmented, with lack of patterns and best practices, but don't have time to tidy it up without risking breaking stuff.
Not all functions are fully tested due to the underlying GPS bug, which others are also seeing and has been raised on premier support.
There is still more I want to do, but it will have to wait for a future version, as time is pressing. Think I bit off more than I can chew for the timeframe available, but think it does show the potential of the ultrabook sensor capability.
If you can't whip it out in under two hours using something like InnoSetup, you can as well start stuffing your mouth with live wild angry rabid wasps. That won't get the software installed correctly either, but at least simplifies uninstall.
No, I'm fine (except the ugly cold and dealing with release documentaton rather than clobbering new features into the machine).
It's just an allergic reaction to someone mentioning StallShiet. It usually fades in minutes.
I'm pretty much a noob programmer, but I think that I've learned all the very basics pretty well. Now I feel like in order to advance my skills I need to work on some project. My problem is, I don't have any good ideas of my own so I'd like to find a good open source project to work on. Can any of you guys/gals suggest an open source project that I could join that wouldn't be too complicated for me to help out with?
or here: Ohloh.net[^]- Ohloh is a free, public directory of Free and Open Source Software and the contributors who create and maintain it. They've indexed over a half million projects (and scored them in a variety of ways).
If a you have open source you best have the Doctor look at them, he can give you an ointment to put on them...
Seriously though, there a number of really good articles here at CodeProject that provide source code along with good documentation . Click on the Articles tab above and peruse the nicely categorized articles, I'm sure you'll find many projects of interest. Best of all most of the authors a very willing to provide assistance as long as you show an earnest attempt to implementing and understanding of their work. There are some very good writers here.
Though, this is probably an obvious statement....I'd recommend doing something that interests you, as it might give you some direction/help when looking for a professional career. From a resume perspective, if you're applying for a new job with some experience in related topics, it might help you land a new job and give you some idea if you'd even like that kind of work.
