  • Wtf is going on?

    All,

    Posts with unacceptably harsh tone and unusual amounts of disrespect are being deleted and will continue to be deleted going forward.

    In the future (now, actually) you will have a hard time entering bad words and annoying html into posts due to improved filtering mechanisms we have implemented. Of course, workarounds happen and some people just love to break rules. We'll fix the holes as they arise, should they exist... 

    It's hard to believe how out of control this place has gotten recently. The level of disrespect was so high it was hurtful. Banning users is no longer as improbable (but remains equally as unfortunate) as it once was.


    Keep on posting,

    Charles

    Obviously you get paid to say that, am I right or am I right?


    You are wrong. I don't get paid to say things.

    EDIT: Sticking to the point. Smiley

  • Sample .NET Windows Forms in C++

    Check out some of the samples on CodeProject. For example, this one.

    Whidbey will make this a much better programming experience, from a C++ syntax point of view as well as improved features in Windows Forms 2.0 which are of course exploitable from any .NET language.

    Good question. I guess so!

  • Access a Web Service W/OUT VS.NET

    If you want to programmatically access your webmethods from your client code, you'll want to build a proxy class using wsdl.exe. It will make your life easier. But of course, that's what all the VS "mumbo jumbo" does for you. Sounds like you want to do things the hard way Smiley

  • Important Notice: Forum Rules

    I think the point here is that We, as Channel 9ers, should work together to build a rule system. Why must the admins of a forum site be responsible for the way in which the forums operate, from a social perspective? You, as non-admins, most importantly as customers, are the most important members of Channel 9. I mean, this is not a place solely for the Channel 9 team to engage in debate, right? Could you imagine if all you could do is read posts of Bryn and I arguing about the future of C++ or CLR exceptions? Smiley

    Let's make some rules together and let's each be accountable for our actions.

    Keep on posting,

  • Funny - posting and you...

    I'm sorry to hear this funky_avocado. Not surprisingly, respectful conversation techniques are a learned trait. That is, there is no way to automate mutual respect. This is why I've chosen to post "please be respectful" reminders when threads spin out of control. In the unfortunate example you mention, there's no way for us to filter out such a disrespectful reply automatically. Maybe we'll need to implement really intelligent filtering. Thing is, we don't have this technology yet.


    Thanks,

    Charles

    Lars, where did you receive that advice? Certainly not from me. It's interesting that posting respectful reminders about the need to maintain respect in the forums would be interpreted as saying "shut the hell up". I assure you, it couldn't be farther from the truth. Keep talking. It's just so unfortunate that threads like this need to last for so long.

    Nobody should be afraid to post because of potential attack. Is this really how many of you are feeling today? If so, then we are going to need to implement a way for users to ignore other users and that's a bummer.

    To take the thread in a more constructive direction, what do you think about Jonathan's Fine Print idea?
