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.
