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.
After two weeks of playing with a 3D printer, I finally have some useful results. This is a landing gear I have made for a 1/16 scale Seaking. The landing gear is going to be retractable and the model is going to fly, of course.
I often expect things to work and they don't so I thought I might mention a time when I did not expect a thing to work and it did.
I am changing my C'YaPass app so you can save the web site's password requirements along with your siteKey. That will mean the app will remmeber each sites's pwd requirements like Yahoo!, for example, requires uppercase, max length of 32 and 1 special char.
Anyways, currently the SiteKey objects are simply stored in a json file (serialized) and then deserialized when the program loads. Very simple.
However, to do the new work it means the SiteKey object and the json behind it would be different. I'm adding new property values to the SiteKey class.
I figured that was going to be very difficult since the new app would expect the new property values that obviously weren't there.
However, I found that the NewtonSoft Deserializer handles all that behind the scenes.
1. It simply reads the old json and deserializes the old json into my new objects (which contain new properties)
2. serializes the objects back out with default values where the user has not provided the values yet
Before anyone gets upset, I'm here because I am not sure where to turn. I have a child mostly bedridden, and using games on his Kindle Fire gets him through medical procedures such as IV infusions, etc. When he is in a lot of pain, he dives into Kindle games.
I did a little research (I don't have vast amounts of time with sickly kids - yup two of 'em) and found that supposedly if I downloaded one of the virus cleaners from the Amazon App Store from within the Kindle, it should have been vetted and virus free. But it didn't make it better, and could have made it worse. My son does not want to lose his progress on Pixel Gun 3D, nor his other games. He's been playing for a long time (more than he should have, but due to painful nights, he has a lot of time logged into games), so he would be devastated to lose everything. So rebooting is out. He doesn't need yet another disappointment. He can't play soccer anymore, he can't even go outside, he is missing a ton of school, and now his Kindle is misbehaving. Talk about his "last straw." And he can't even play with his nerf guns because it hurts his IV arm. I want something to go right for him.
Any recommendations of something to clean up his Kindle without losing everything? He has Kindle Fire HD 8.0. Please help. I've tried searching sites, but it is too time consuming and I'd rather be beside his side, or with his sister, than trying a bunch of things that don't work.
