When Association Football was being codified the original draft of the rules by the FA included
X. If any player shall run with the ball towards his adversaries' goal, any player on the opposite side shall be at liberty to charge, hold, trip or hack him, or to wrest the ball from him, but no player shall be held and hacked at the same time.
this was the most contentious rule to be dropped with the FA's first treasurer saying "hacking is the true football" and resigning from the organisation when it was removed.

I program as a hobby (using VS12) and I have an entertaining program I would like to share. Trouble is I am not a "verified programmer". How do I become one? I would also like to share the source code. It has all kinds of goodies I'd love to discuss. To get an idea of what it does, go to my web site
and click on the *.jpg file.
You don't need to be a verified programmer just certifiable.
If you have a look at this http://www.codeproject.com/info/Submit.aspx[^] it should give you enough to go to the next step.
Anything that may be of interest to other programmers put together into a coherent form is suitable I would think.

I volunteered to help a friend of the wife's last week with computer problems. The workstation belongs to a local church and contains years of business information. The workstation refuses to boot. Plugging the drive in as a slave starts chkdisk which reports that the master file table is corrupt, and aborts. The drive is not accessible through explorer, which reports the same error. I was able to recover all files on the disk using photorec however, it meant losing filenames and directory information. I am about to dig out the old XP CD's and try a repair. Has anybody had any luck fixing a corrupted master file table? Google results on this one look pretty grim. The sad thing is, this is a pro-bono job, and I already have a few hours in it. (not counting the 16 hours it took to recover the files to another disk) Here goes nothing....
Tried it. I finally dug out the XP Home CD and have given up hope on anything but a re-install so that I can at least give them the computer back running with their recovered data on DVDs. Formatting now,... I suppose I am past the point of no return. With any luck all they really need are the quickbooks files and office documents.
