Yep. That's why I have boilerplate! Laugh | :laugh:

We can't do it for them, it isn't fair: not on us, not on their classmates who have tried themselves, not on themselves in the long term because they never learn the right "mind set" to do the job - and that means unfair on the company and their coworkers when they eventually manage to lie their way into a job.

Got one today: I told him - politely - to use the debugger, and he starts SHOUTING at me, and getting increasingly desperate. Nope. Shout at me, I stop responding ... show me you are trying and I'll help to the best of my ability.

But I don't worry about the future: it's seen as a low-effort, high pay career that anyone who can use an iPhone and Google can cope with. So the morons flock in in their droves and the good ones get hidden in the noise.

But they are there. And they will shine, possibly all the more brightly in comparison to the "non-diamonds" they are buried under ... it'll just take some time, is all. Until then, repeat after me "We do not do your homework: it is set for a reason. It is there so that you think about what you have been told, and ... "
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
