  • Re: How old is your machine?

    We've got great i7 laptops with SSDs and tons of RAM but our CI environment is SVN and Jenkins so that we don't get too productive. I love nothing more than to restart a build job five times because the NAnt script Jenkins runs can't delete a random file from somewhere because of "Access Denied". I also love the stacktrace ...

  • Re: You just went full hungarian

    Yep. I see this in spades, every day. Some of us are using a similar convention for our class and method names.

     The best drinking game I've seen is "the rum game". The rules are simple, sit in a circle with an opened bottle of rum. take a swig and pass the bottle on. the next person has to take a bigger swig. that's all.
