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. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
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.
"...consider what happened to the companies in the ice-harvesting business.
From the 1830s to the 1890s ice harvesting (cutting up frozen ponds and selling the ice) was a huge industry in New England. In 1886, the biggest ice harvest that ever occurred amounted to 25 million tons.
By the 1920s, almost all the ice-harvesting companies were out of business. Ice harvesting had been made obsolete by ice-making plants that could operate in any part of the country during every season.
Later, these ice-making plants were themselves made obsolete with the advent of refrigerators in people's homes."
Suppose you could go back in time and ask the owners of the ice-harvesting companies what their reactions were to ice-making machines. What do you think they would tell you?
*Guy Kawasaki was the "Product Evangelist" (worked closely with Steve Jobs) whose job was to convince companies to build software for the original Mac (even though it was a slow machine with too little RAM).
You were probably surfing on pages you shouldn't have been surfing on. Does your wife know?
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
We use Chrome as a company, standards, mutter, mutter. However I caught a key combination that lets you alter the view of a tab to see the whole page scaled for your monitor, I can't despite googling get an answer the best they come up with is the magnifier option this just blows up the image so all distortion is visible...anybody any ideas??
Not sure it's a bot - I think it's about three or four individuals at a spam farm. When we had bot attacks last year, they posted a whole load faster than these guys are managing: 100 messages+ per minute per user.
