  • Re: This graph may or may not be plotted on a log scale

    [quote user="Maciejasjmj"][quote user="Ben L."] out of 1000 people who were given birth to by a woman[/quote] As opposed to whom? Arnold Schwarzenegger? And "by selected age of mother" implies that out of 1000 women that age, this many women have given birth. Plus, I think that post was sarcastic, though I ...

Surely nobody will be able to identify him.[/quote]  Depends, on what cabinet they keep their piromaniac-ex-eployee file? I bet they'll need years just to locate it.

  • Re: FxCop, Microsoft Downloads

  • Re: What year is it? Let me check the database...

    [quote user="mikeTheLiar"] Ah, yes. year_id: PK, int, not null. Name: varchar(50), not null. It all makes so much sense in retrospect. We're all set for those 50 digit years.

  • Re: I sense a mouse

    Yep, Intelisense. That stupid thing that makes VisualStudio take 10 seconds to update a character after you type. Yeah, it's nice, but would be better if it worked.  Anyway, Microsoft periferals are great. They are quite well made, and usable...
