  1. In Topic: What are you working on today?

    Posted 24 Apr 2015

    That's making my eyes water by just reading it.

    Today has been testing, finding things that I didn't expect to see, writing up an email (which, thanks to a large copy/ paste of serial output to ensure the recipients understood what I was referring to, turned out to be 38 pages long...), and running some stress tests.

    Still have 2.5 hours left in the day.
  2. In Topic: Is this C++?

    Posted 23 Apr 2015

    It's python. That's definitely not C++.
  3. In Topic: Git with C# Development

    Posted 22 Apr 2015

    I personally would go with git if given the option. I have spent 2 years working towards converting my company to git (hopefully successfully, but that will be seen by the end of this year, after the migration happens). We currently use Synergy, which was bad 10 years ago... and is approaching EOL.

    Git is commonly taught in schools, so companies are starting to catch on to the fact that they don't have that 2+ week time required for new college grads to get used to something they have been using for the last ~4 years, instead of some proprietary system that is only found in companies willing to spend lots of money for them (which college students definitely don't qualify as).
  4. In Topic: Spring - Summer 2015 Fitness

    Posted 21 Apr 2015

    This year I decided to actually do something and see if I can't come out of it with a 6-pack (abs, not beer... I can have a 6-pack of beer any time). So far I have a 2-pack. But basically it comes down to having a 20 LB weight sitting in the family room and lifting it every other day in a workout while watching TV or something of the sort. I also started doing archery, which totally killed my arms (and right leg for some reason) over the weekend, so I haven't done any lifting this week yet (hopefully my arms will feel up for it tomorrow so I will have just skipped 2 days). Outside of that, I have been trying to stretch out on a daily basis (just because it is better than sitting in front of the computer for an extra 5 minutes, and actually gets some blood moving).

    Ideally, I'll bring my bike up to work and go on a bike ride over lunch on Fridays as well (unless I am playing volleyball during lunch, but the company which owns the net hasn't put it back up yet). We will see if that actually happens though.

    In other news: It is amazing, but you have a tendon running on the inside of your thumb, so if you grip a bow wrong for an extended period of time your thumb can go numb... I am hoping it is something that will heal given a week and I can try better next weekend (at the moment, if I rub the tendon area my thumb will go numb for a few seconds -- feeling comes back if I stop touching it).
  5. In Topic: 5 digit palindrome issue

    Posted 21 Apr 2015

    On line #15 you loop until number has the value of 0, and then later on you output number. This will always output 0 since that is guaranteed to be the value of number at that point. What variable could you output instead of number to print its original value?

    No problem. I love JavaScript so it isn't anything terribly difficult. The hardest part is to come up with challenges that will get people interested and not scare everyone away until we at least are a bit more known :)

    I think there are a few people who like IE, but we are the minority. I use it because I have grown up with it, it acts the most as I would expect it to (out of the major browsers) and I have grown accustom to its little quirks. Everyone talks about building things for FF then hacking for IE, but I find that Opera, IE, Chrome, and Sarafi normally work very close to the same, and FF is the outlier.

    Serious Question(s): Are you the only user who prefers IE over all of the other browsers? I haven't seen anyone else with that marked...
    Also, why do you prefer it?
