It's secure. It's one of the few combinations other apps cannot catch, even with a keylogger. It's something that programmers can't block using a normal application. It is the ultimate way of closing a CPU-hogger on a single-CPU machine.

It is the ultimate way of closing a CPU-hogger on a single-CPU machine.
Uhh... I'd like to disagree with that. I had cases where the CPU was blocked and "CTRL-ALT-DEL" did exactly nothing.. (Well yeah... it did.. 15 minutes later... )
Besides, just by hitting CTRL-ALT-DEL you accomplished nothing. All you get is a chance to bring up the task manager. Nothing prevents the application to block the cpu again as soon as you brought up that
It has become one of the ultimate archetype of Windows.
The thing is that crtl+alt+del is not a windows thing but a ibm/pc one. Bios intercepts that combination to operate a reset. Windows just made it famous by giving the tip to end-users on the famous blue-screen.

Not the way you probably think- Someone went bookmarking some of my old messages in the CodeProject.TV forum
I am not even mad, even though I ask why he picked messages from the beginning of this year and not some of the newer ones
You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named "Bush", "Dick", and "Colon."
No. It's no big deal. I bookmark stuff all the time because it looks interesting. Eventually I'll go back and take a look and sometimes realize it's not for me so I un-bookmark it. Don't think there is anything sinister going on here - the net effect is as if it never happened.

Yet another fail by Ivy Tech's filter system. The system blocked Google, Bing, and Yahoo for a while until the Administration asked the IT Team to remove those blocks (after some arguments with the company that created the filter).

"Now you can continue what you were doing. We're sorry for the inconvenience—we're trying to stop spammers, not you!"
This message, I'm getting after "successfully" answering a LONG captcha code in my hotmail account while trying to send a mail.
Bad things get more visibility, & try to reach users' eyes faster. When I read the line, I only read, "Sorry your captcha was wrong, You look like a spammer". I mean, in a reflex read that happens in a milliseconds. But immediately after, we get the message right. Even this UX lag in ms shouldn't happen.
The good news rather be in bold or some kind of focus applied.
The excuses must be in small fonts.
I empathize Microsoft. Not just these, as I'm using a lot of products of them, I'm encountering a lot of "could be better" thing. Why do they have problems every little corners.

I am not asking for legal advice. Ok, now that everyone's butt has been covered....
I've gotten very curious about why some of my articles have gotten a very high amount of traffic, so I started poking around. It turns out that one of my articles[^] is referenced in U. S. Patent #8296730[^], held by Microsoft. Presumably, Microsoft would not have filed this patent if they did not expect to see some kind of commercial return on it.
Question 1: Does the Code Project use license permit for-profit use of the articles that people post here?
Question 2: Would I be entitled to any financial gain that Microsoft might see from this patent, seeing as my work is a reference to the patent? (Ignore, for the moment, the issues involved in trying to initiate a patent dispute with M$.)
The CodeProject Open License is summarized here and detailed here. I'd say go review those and make your own conclusions, but from what I can tell there aren't the sort of restrictions you seem to be implying for that license.
