ok, i just think that d.a was trying to stop a big argument early, i can see it gaining more people and taking away from rate a sig

True, but a PM would have been more effective.

Sometimes. But occasionally there may be a need to remind the community to take it easy, so saying it in public may have a small amount of merit. playing devil's advocate> :P

And for the record, I see nothing wrong with using tutorials! I do all the time. :D

I see your point but perhaps he should have worded the warning a little better than simply shush.

Like what? That was the information I wanted to convey; I think I did it in an economy of language. What else do you want? Three pages, single-spaced? ;-)

No but some tact would be nice. The moderators are the face of a forum. Do you want that face to be one of a rude SOB or a friendly one?

*shrug* if people won't show me the courtesy of staying on topic, I won't show people the courtesy of a lengthy explanation. Besides, "shush" doesn't seem very mean to me...

Anyway, this topic has exhausted itself. Kreeos, if you feel that this warrants further discussion, please take it up with me via PM. Thank you.

It'd be quite simple to write one yourself...]

I mean included in .NET so that I don't have to clutter up the source files of small projects or include another dll.

MessageBox was never intended for debugging in the first place, though I have fallen into that habit as well.

Debug.Print() really is a far better way to analyze code at runtime. Or breakpoints.

*grumble grumble*

I'm quiting my job so I put in my 2 weeks notice a couple weeks ago. According to the schedule today would have been my last day of work even though I said my official last day is Thursday. My manager figures this out and gives me another shift on Thursday. Stupid managers...

What sort of place do you work for?

I work unloading at the local Wal-Mart.

Not much fun. My manager is very leniant on me. He usually allows me to decide on my own shecudel, allows me to decide how much work I have to do, or if I even have to work at all. I love being my boss :wink:

We get to leave as soon as all the work's done. That's not the problem. I'm just sick of all the BS that goes down at Wal-Mart.

First would be thinking of myself as a cruel manager who hates me. Conundrum.

Second is thinking of me taking revenge on myself. That is plain Emo.

Third is the whole fact that I just realized I butchered the word schedule a few posts up.

My Rant: I have a new plugin and I cannot find it on the forums anywhere. I am beginning to think I coded it myslef because the UI is nonexistant and it is a rather simple algorithm. Has anyone heard of InsideOut?

so here's a rant.

last fall I signed up for a spot in the seniors continuing education program. I went down to the office picked up the forms and where it asked what I would be interested in. .. I put down learning some computor programming language skills.

got the call about 1/2 hour ago. this is what they offer me. Computors for Seniors. or computers for seniors the next step. well that course tells me how to use Micorsoft windows and word basic. It will teach me how to safely navigate thru the e mail process and surf the net.

get this for the blurb "You requir no computor knowledge. There is a world of information geared for all topics. vacation planning, shopping, research on medications, vendors, hobbies a whole new world."

daaaaaaaa I'm not a moron just because I'm a senior. I request something with more teeth in it thankyou very much.

back to step one, get a book and teach my self once again.

ciao OMA

Ugh, sounds like all the computer classes I've ever taken. I could have probably taught the class and the teacher :P

It seems like (for some people) computers only consist of A) An internet browser which to research with and B) word processors and spreadsheet software :roll:

And what is wrong with that? Those may be the only ways a computer can be of use to them.
