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.
Today I suddenly realized that the re-org of my Chrome book marks I did yesterday somehow removed/deleted the entire huge collection of C# related links. Probably four months of adding new bookmarks gone bye-bye.
Gasp, shudder, quiver, uncontrollable weeping: Angel with flaming sword appears and carves the words "Did Not Back-up" into my flesh.
Chrome creates one bookmark back-up only, re-writing the current bookmark file each time you open it: [^].
I tried using the Recuva free version [^], which you point at the target folder, and, hot-damn, a few hours later I found recoverable files.
So, my hearties and homies, take a lesson from this tale, and do back-up those book-marks ... along with everything else.
cheers, Bill the Resurrected
«There is a spectrum, from "clearly desirable behaviour," to "possibly dodgy behavior that still makes some sense," to "clearly undesirable behavior." We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
As some of you may remember, last year in this post I mentioned that my current employer had lost the tender to operate the field I work in. Well here we are 7 months later and today is the day that could change everything again!
The new employment offers are being distributed today from 10am (qatar time).....
So, what does this mean.......potential outcomes:
1) No change.......continue to live and work here with the family, in the same villa, same schools, everything....
2) Slight change......continue to live and work here with the family, but may have to change villas etc. etc.
3) Big change............continue to work here and relocate the family to somewhere I can continue tax free.
4) Disaster change...........continue to work here but relocate the family to the UK, and I stay out the UK as per the tax rules.
5) Disaster 2 change............continue to work here, relocate family and me to the UK.
I have a feeling that option 3 is the way it is going to go....so currently exploring options for Cyprus. My head is mince looking at heaps of different property listings and trying to find somewhere to rent! I think the misses is also in the same option 3 frame of mind, which of course helps any decisions that will be made. Except the arguments will start on where and what villa to look at.
Option 3 - your preferred one if got it right - sounds me bad... How can you work 2000 Km away from family? It means that after/before every shift you have a half day of flight... A full day you should spend with them... I hope you will have something better!!!
Skipper: We'll fix it. Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this? Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
