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.
Although this is the lounge and you should have kept it KSS, it's a general truism that most guy start out as 'nippers', stop for a while and then, upon reaching puberty, become even more interested in nippers.
(What was that? It's not what it means?)
(I'll post it anyway.)
Images of far distant galaxies are amongst my favorites. I wonder if humans will ever reach any of them?
Considering the time it took for one man-made craft to leave the heliosphere (let alone the solar system), I'd say it's highly unlikely we're ever going to leave our galaxy. So forget about the far-distant ones.
While Voyager 1 is commonly spoken of as having left the Solar System simultaneously with having left the heliosphere, the two are not the same. The Solar System is usually defined as the vastly larger region of space populated by bodies that orbit the Sun. The craft is presently less than one seventh the distance to the aphelion of Sedna, and it has not yet entered the Oort cloud, the source region of long-period comets, regarded by astronomers as the outermost zone of the Solar System.
Considering the evolution of technology in just the last 115 years coupled with our lack of understanding of the cosmos, I have higher hopes of future generations ability to do what now seems impossible.

Well, at the very least, we'd need to be able to build vehicles that can exceed the speed of light to make it viable, come up with working hibernation or build generational ships and that's just to explore our own galaxy. Only when we can exceed the speed of light will interstellar travel become worthwhile.

Ah, forgot that WPF/XAML uses the $exception object. Well, just need to parse that object then assuming you have access to the code. If not hopefully it returns the entire object and not just the string.
It's just missing a resource. The original assembly has been split up into two parts for a better separation of layers and now it looks for some image resources at the wrong place. Nothing really complicated. It's only weird that nobody has noticed that for years.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
After four years, the DBA finally got tired of having to follow the rules he set forth, and gave me Sys Admin permissions on our database servers so I would stop bothering him about toggling ownership on jobs so they'd run (or not run), and so I could run jobs with my own account (while testing) instead of using the service account.
I knew I'd wear him down.
