    Yeah. But then if Mesh actually had the ability to fill in those details...then we'd be on to something.

    The again, if there was a good replacement for cookies in general, then this would probably be even easier.
    We were discussing cookies the other day here in the office... and we decided they aren't named very well. How often do you go to a business and get given a cookie... which you are then expected to bring back with you and present on any subsequent visit to the store?

  • Can we get Page links for threads?

    If you go to your profile and check off the 'go to last unread' option then just click on a thread like normal, you'll be taken to the first comment that was added since you last visited the thread

    Yeah this is really a fundemental flaw in a forum, it should be given higher priority, I hope Duncan reads this thread.
    quoting in the way C9 had it implemented wouldn't really fix this issue by the way...

    I love Minh and I think all of his comments are wonderful


    I don't really think that provides any real accountability. What you seem to want is a form of versioning on the comments, which I don't think is a very common forum feature.

    well at least the old layout looked not broken, and the new one doesn't seems to remember  I've already voted, yes with my cookies enabled

    What browser are you using where it looks broken?

    It does know that you voted (if you try to vote again it will tell you), it just doesn't automatically display the results for you... I'd call that a bug, and I'll ask them about it.

    Going from Firefox 3.0.1 and IE8, chrome is noticably faster for me. I can't go back now because things are just so...quick!

    Chrome > IE8 > Firefox

    The separate tab processes make me love IE8 over Firefox. Speedwise, IE8 just isn't where it needs to be for me. I know it is beta, that could change. Chrome is Beta, and things can only get better.

    I'll be using it more over the next few days, so I'll probably notice the speed differences more...

    it will be interesting to see the rate of adoption of a totally new browser, both amongst C9's audience (technical folks, large numbers using Microsoft dev technologies) and in the general public.

    Duncan, how fast is C9 and the overall site performance for you in Chrome...?

    I guess it blazes for you guys anyway since you are on campus but the site performance is much better in Chrome than in IE7.
    I've only hit a couple of pages with it... I'm not really noticing the speed increase, but IE8 is also a big jump for speed from IE7 as well though and that is what I'm using most of the time so it is possible I'd see a more noticeable increase going from IE7 to Chrome.

    "The presentation is awesome, looks very next-gen. Frikin' brilliant idea of moving tabs to the very top of the screen and not wasting any screen space."

    All the screenshots I've seen still have a titlebar. It just has no title in it, like Vista's Explorer windows. Or does that dissapear when you maximize?

    Does it have a on-the-fly zoom capability? My eyes are getting old and tired and Ie7's zoom doesn't always work too well. I have yet to try ie8.

    PS: How do you selective quote in c9v4 again?

    [ quote user = "La Bomba"] quote text [/ quote] (removing all spaces in the [quote] elements though)

    damn, yes indeed I meant poll, sorry, it's not like you'll see a new poll on C9 every day you know, so it's not that hard to guess Smiley
    I just assumed it was related to syntax coloring... that combined with the typo left me confused.

    What was cooler about the old poll, if I may ask?

    looks cool Tongue Out and it also looks like the old pool is back, although not as cool as the old one Sad
    I have no idea what you mean by this:

    class Program {
       void Main(){
    
        // is program pretty-colored, or is this just a straight tokeniser?
    
        Program p = new Program();
    
      }
    
    }
    
    
    
    


    Hmm. this means it won't color things properly like:

      Dictionary<String, ComplexNumber> d = null;
    

    It is a very simple code formatting system, I've also considered using http://www.actiprosoftware.com/Products/DotNet/ASPNET/CodeHighlighter/Default.aspx which I believe does a more complex style of formatting.
