Your Going Deep series has been my favourite part of C9.. but I gotta say.. Rory Rocks!!! Charles, you better keep tabs on Rory, because he is going to give you a run for your money with the excitement he brings with his interest in Windows Embedded.
Welcome to the world of C9 Rory.. looking forward to your future WCE videos.
... we have powerfull corporations and their Product Branding and Marketting teams (with good intentions) bastardizing the basic rules of standardized and simple English sentence structure.
I love the DOT-NET technology, but the DOT-NET product branding is destroying the written form and use of the english language in the technical journals.
Here is an example sentence from the Editor's Note of MSDN Magazine, Paragraph 2 - sentence 2, April 2004 Vol 19 NO 4
"Leading off, we'll explain to you the fundamentals of code coverage in .NET. Code coverage is a way to make sure that all parts of your application are tested propertly -- it doesn't determine that they work properly, just hat they're covered by your test
The above use of '.NET.' basically invalidates ALL of Bill Hills arguements.
We already have _exceptions_ to the rules with 220.127.116.11 version numbers embedded in sentences.. now we have sentences STARTING with periods preceding Nouns. ;(
This is one reason why Homo Sapiens will never evolve beyond version 1.0.
