Nah, what you've missed is this: Everybody knows that Leslie Nielsen died a long time ago. But every so often, someone will post a RIP anyway just for fun and get downvoted to oblivion.
But now, TPFKAPB took the opportunity to do so while voting is disabled... As a joke, of course. It's not like he thinks that Leslie just died (at least I hope not!)

Since voting is off in the lounge I have no further reason to visit CP.
I have planned a two week vacation to Portugal to think life over and get away from CP and more importantly, not voting.
Well, maybe CP had little to do with this vacation. I guess you'll never know.
Anyway, see you all when I get back!
A train station is where the train stops. A bus station is where the bus stops. On my desk, I have a work station....
My programs never have bugs, they just develop random features.
The acccent may not have come over in my post - Chris's pronunciatino of 'Working' sounded (to my pommie ears) Liverpudlian - and the Scousers have been known (at least in teh 60's ) to use the term 'Gear' as a synonym for 'Good, Great' or the Brummie equivalent 'Bostin'
I think Chris's account has been hacked by a Scouser.

I was looking into the Go Language, and saw there was a few books out there on it.
Every year before Christmas where I work, we can generate a wish list of materials and tools for the comming year. Currently I have about $600 (I got it cut down from $925 ) in amazon books in my wish list, so before I add one more book to the list, a couple of questions:
1. Anyone from the .NET world have any experences useing this language? (how does it compare?)
2. Is this still an expermental language or are there people out there making and selling applications built with Go? (examples?)
Go seams interesting, although it at first glance doesn't seem to have much to do with what I normally do (HMIs, hardware control and embedded devices), I normally work with .NET,embedded C, and Arduino C; so I'm looking to expand in some new directions, I'm just not sure if Go is worth while, from my already short ammount of free time.
