NASA's $349 Million Empty Tower

godefroi Re:Quoted from TFA (200 comments)

No, he was merely giving that as an example of the power one senator has. In this case, it wasn't that a cancellation bill was placed on hold, it was that the amendment sponsored by Wicker was passed, directing NASA to finish it.

Microsoft Introduces .NET Core

godefroi Re:Minor revision? (187 comments)

6 years since release, and the nicest thing that can be said for it is that it's growing steadily.

Microsoft Introduces .NET Core

godefroi Re:Death knoll for Java (187 comments)

LINQ the DSL was the big news when it was released, but in the real world, it has gotten very little traction. The Enumerable extension methods that are the plumbing behind it, however (after all, the DSL simply gets translated into calls to this stuff by the compiler), are quite common.

Microsoft Introduces .NET Core

godefroi Re:Death knoll for Java (187 comments)

LINQ, or the Enumerable extension methods? Results (can be) similar, language is very different.

The enumerable extension methods plus lambdas is more similar to Java's stream API, but only an insane person would prefer Java's implementation. As for LINQ (the DSL for working with the same methods), it's FAR less common. I rarely see it in practice, and I don't generally prefer it.

Microsoft To Open Source .NET and Take It Cross-Platform

godefroi Re:Desparate Microsoft pulls a "Sun Microsystems" (525 comments)

It's not using Linq. It's using a set of extension methods and lambda expressions. Linq is a whole other DSL ("from x in myVehicles...") that I rarely see used.

Lambda expressions are simply syntactic sugar for anonymous methods.

It's distressing to me that you claim to be a C# developer and can't "wrap your head around" lambdas, which you also confuse with Linq. Hopefully you have an MSDN subscription and can take advantage of some of the new free PluralSight training, because you clearly need it. I wouldn't hire you.

Of course they're not required to do so. That being said, some of us bank with institutions that don't hate their customers.

Passwords: Too Much and Not Enough

Passwords: Too Much and Not Enough

godefroi Re:Why so high? (223 comments)

You don't pick an account and guess passwords for it, you pick a password and guess accounts for it. That way, you don't risk locking out accounts. Because most people use one of the very common passwords, you have a shockingly high chance of finding an account that works with the (presumably common) password you've chosen.

Rite Aid and CVS Block Apple Pay and Google Wallet

godefroi Re:Good luck with that. (558 comments)

I carry one debit and one credit. I only ever pay with the debit if whatever retailer I'm at doesn't accept the credit.

Why would you have more than one credit card? I've never understood that. Except if you're currently playing the introductory-bonus-card-swapping game, I guess. I never got into that.

You need a better bank. I'm with a CU, and when $300 got withdrawn (via an ATM without a camera, ofc), the bank gave me the $300 back while they did the investigation.

Intel Drops Gamasutra Sponsorship Over Controversial Editorials

godefroi Re:gtfo (724 comments)

If you make it known you are a woman on an entire host of mic'd online-play games, you will almost always be harassed. The girls I know who are into those type of games only play them with the mic muted and using an androgynous user-name. More often, they will just stay away from those games, and stick to games that have a less negative social aspect. Similarly, you can easily get called the entire gamut of racial slurs and have your sexual preferences questioned and insulted. It might be true that most of the worst verbal assaults come from dorky 14 year olds, but that doesn't make it alright and that does very little to soften the pain it causes to be treated that way.

My wife plays mic'd games, makes it known she's female, and the worst "harassment" she's ever had is a World of Warcraft group wiping whenever she says anything over voice chat.

My anecdotal story is worth as much as your unsubstantiated claim, i.e. nothing.

Microsoft allows patching of ASP.NET MVC Framework

godefroi godefroi writes  |  more than 6 years ago

godefroi (52421) writes "Microsoft's Scott Guthrie has updated the roadmap for the upcoming ASP.NET MVC framework. As part of his blog post, he mentions this interesting bit (near the bottom):

Starting with this next preview, we are also going to make the ASP.NET MVC Framework source code downloadable as a buildable VS project solution. This will enable you to easily view and debug the ASP.NET MVC Framework source code. We are also going to include a license that permits you to optionally make patches to the ASP.NET MVC Framework source code in the event that you run into a bug in an application you are developing with it.
Microsoft aren't going to allow redistribution of modified source, but it seems that they've moved one step closer..."
