Mate! Good to see you again.

While you were away the interwebz achieved a level of unprecedented enlightenment and cultural acceptance. Frank and open minded discussions dominated the forums with an earnest desire on both sides to listen to what the other was saying and to understand things from their point of view.

Programming questions dwindled down to a few well thought out and well written nuggets because reading the docs and searching through the vast quantities of published help became the in thing. Answers, by and large, are now succinct, accurate and lacking in both snark and condescension. Obviously the entire rating system is now abandoned because there's really no point if everything is a flat "5/5".

Javascript has finally been abandoned (and who didn't see THAT coming!) and the one true language is back at the top of the heap. We did think of renaming the site to The FORTRAN Project but we had too many CodeProject mugs lying about and didn't want to be wasteful.

Oh, and JSOP's posted a long, heartfelt piece on why peace through arms is an entirely backwards way to look at things and had a metal worker friend turn his pieces into delicate hanging mobiles that, in his words, represent "the inhumanity of man's search for themselves through steel". It's quite an emotionally charged sculpture. Oh, and he brought a Prius.


OK, so maybe some of that is a bit exagerated but you get the gist.
cheers
Chris Maunder
