Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

I don't believe I am watching this at 1:20 AM... I haven't been to CP for a long time and when I finally got here, the only place I visit is The Lounge.
BTW it is fun to observe how CP subtitle changes over time... When I was registering it was homely "Your Visual Studio and .NET Homepage", at some point of time it changed to a serious "Programming Resource", and now it is a social "CodeBook For those who code". I think it accurately describes the evolution of CP
Heck, it's only 10 minutes into Christmas Day here, and I've just polished off Santa's share of the scotch and am working on his plate of cookies. I haven't got a chimney, and there's no way that fat bugger is going to slip through the kitchen sink air vent, so I assume he's sent all that's coming via Fedex, and he won't be stopping by. Just as well, as it takes until half past Spring to scrape the reindeer crap off the roof and out of the gutters when he does come to visit...
Second, I have decided to rewrite my Rich Text Editor project in C#, which is now my primary development language. I am going to add a bunch of Windows 7 features to the application, such as Jumplists, Task Dialogs, Application Restart and Recovery, and so on. I will also be implementing an automatic updater for the application.
Does anyone here have any ideas for other AddIns I can create for the application? The ones I already have in mind are a scripting AddIn (IronPython by default, has extensibility points for other languages) and a Web Browser AddIn (either CEF or GeckoFX. Or Both. ). The updater will also be its own AddIn.
If you want it to sell like the proverbial hotcakes, make a term paper add-in. Put in a search box for the topic, and a textbox for page count, then have it search the Web for relevant content to copy for the body, and links for an automatic bibliography and footnote generator. The output should be a completed term paper of the specified length containing not one word of original content, other than the student's name and class section. Trust me; grad students will pay megabucks for this...

The Secured Financial House are not able to perfect the transfer to any designated bank account due largely to financial transfer restriction globally that is aimed at curbing terrorist funding and money laundering. Therefore I have spoken with some international monetary experts, who at different occasion suggest moving the funds in pallet as diplomatic luggage into a level playing ground.
This suggestion prompted my negotiation with a sophisticated diplomatic security outfit in London, UK that promised to help for the evacuation of the funds to Fair Ground soon as we are ready with all valid documentation to that effect. Immediately the evacuation is made a facilitator will accompany the consignment to suggested Ground.

How could the interviewer judge a candidates performance?
Yes, today i attend the interview and the interviewer told me that you are a theoretical guy so,we don't need you.
I almost answer all their answers with clear explanations but...
I think "If we answer more than the interviewer expectations some times they call us a Theoretical guy" is it true?
How could i react to that situations?
Updated On 25-DEC-2012,
Thanks to all who responded to my thread. My mind is clear right now and I hope i will get the job very soon.
Merry X-Mas to all CodeNinjas
I never used the word theoretically. But explain the concepts more clearly For ex: They asked me about SQL joins, I explain the joins with Venn Diagrams(I thought it is the easiest way to impress the interviewer)
Providing an answer which contains more than what an interviewer is asking should be viewed favourably. To me, it demonstrates a willingness to ensure comprehension of your answer. That ability is often more valued than just knowing the answer.
