  • Re: Krispy Kreme fail

    I've done that - the last place I worked, we used to do day trips up to our sattelite offices, and the boss would only ever stop at Tim Hortons.  After getting up four hours early, and having a 17+ hour day ahead, their coffee starts to look really good... Luckily everybody drinks Starbucks at the place I work now.  Overpriced, but ...

  • APEX Thoughts

    My company is currently looking into adopting APEX to replace most of their intranet report site.  How have you guys found it?  Good?  Bad?  Any good rants?  Any serious limitations?  Anything to watch out for? I'm mostly interested because I'll be dealing with it fairly regularly if the adoption goes ...

  • Re: Faced with a future WTF Project

    [quote user="beau29"] His attitude really pisses me off as well... you can't just assume resources are endless because it's 2008. All these people walking around saying how nobody needs to learn C, or pointers, or assembly, or optimization any more (and that everything can be written in C# / Java / Python) are the same ...

  • Re: Moderator Thread: Revisited #2

     [quote user="Jeff S"]  Ever?  You mean, since 2006 when you joined?  Man, you are old school!   [/quote] Yes, because I'm sure he didn't lurk for any time whatsoever before he created his account. </sarcasm>   More seriously though, trolls are an important part of this community - ...

     Also, try not to mind the local troll population.  They're fun, but they take some getting used to.

  • Re: What's that bright stationary object in the sky?

    [quote user="Jake Grey"] See, this is a pretty good argument against routinely arming our cops... [/quote]"Oh my god!  Shoot it down!" See, the scary part is what if they succeed?

  • Re: A new concept of e-mail

    To be honest, I think it was a pretty stupid idea to reveal the raw protocol information to the end user anyway.  I suppose it's better than raw IP addresses (especially with IPv6 around the corner), but still, couldn't we have built something more sane? Like... I dunno... coming up with some kind of location/companyname pair?  ...

  • Re: reDUMBdant UPS

    I do exactly the same thing - whenever I finish a thought, I automatically follow it up with Ctrl+S.  This, however, is always lots of fun in environments where Ctrl+S means something other than "save" :)   Like... this edit box, f'rinstance.  Firefox just offered to download a copy of the "Reply to an Existing ...
