The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
I've been watching the LockPickingLawyer on Youtube, and it's strangely fascinating.
I have no idea why - it's just a bloke's hands wiggling bits of metal in other bits of metal (unless he decides to destroy the lock, in which case anything can happen).
Anyway ... that looked easy, so I thought I'd give it a try. And my lockpicks and learning locks arrived today. It's not easy, but it does come with practice. And I've practiced so much this afternoon than my left hand has cramped up and I can barely type with it ... it is fun in the "sense of achievement" sort of way.
However, I can now open the learning padlock and front door lock really quickly!

Seems like you've been too busy doing NSFW activities.

had the same, an ant got in between the lcd and plastic (protective I guess) cover.
figured it would find it's way out, next day still there, 2 days later sigh, still there
... so I figured try nudging it out: big mistake, dead ant stuck in not quite middle of the screen.
ok, crack open the screen (and of course left burrs in the edge/crack where I pried off the front bezel).
luckily plans to replace were already in place.
anyway - moral of the story: if there's a bug in your screen don't poke at it.
