Upgrading an existing project to .Net Framework 4 Platform Update 1 [Jun. 12th, 2011|02:48 pm]
Tetsujin no Oni
[mood |geeky]

When upgrading so that you can get State Machine support in the WF designer, an existing project will apparently lose its reference to mscorlib, causing it to fail to compile for obvious reasons. Simply re-insert <Reference Include="mscorlib" /> with the other assembly references in the project file and compilation should go back to normal.

(Posting so that there is a good set of keywords to search the error message and look in the XNA support fora to find the similar upgrading-the-framework-version problem that this resolution came from.)

that I work with jUnit 4 at my new job....

Annotations to mark public void tests, you say?

Hmm, this looks just like writing the equivalent tests in C# for consumption by nUnit or its relations, I say.

(Hmm.... I guess Java Annotations and .Net Attributes are both features that really do correspond to the ability of Lisp to equivalate a method and a list, treating it as data... curses, yet another case of all languages slowly evolving in the direction of being syntactic variations on Lisp)

Random Memesheepery... [Mar. 17th, 2008|08:40 pm]

So, I figured I needed SOMETHING posted here. Meme is: put your mp3 player on random, post the first line of the first 30 songs that come up, no matter how embarassing.

'course, that assumes there's lyrics in it. And that the lyrics are in a language!

30 songs on random memeCollapse )

collwen requests assistance unloading what I hope to be the last load of stuff coming up from Poughkeepsie tonight.

I expect that it may not be a conflict with fight practice due to the weather.

John Ringo Signing at Flights [Nov. 30th, 2006|11:48 am]

Okay, so this has been up for a couple weeks at Baen's Bar, and Maria called me when the schedule was set.

John Ringo, the Baen author who converted me into a Webscription fiend all by his lonesome self, with A Hymn Before Battle will be at Flights of Fantasy on Wednesday, 24 January 2007. Reading / signing / etc is slated for 7.

Nix (I'm not ljing your username. silly keyboard thumping username.), I know you're going to want to be there. This guy went from lurking-on-the-publisher's-forums to published in a virtual eye-blink. If you can swing it, talk to Maria about the pre-appearance dinner run (though that might be tight, he's got an appearance in NYC earlier that day).

Time since the world last changed: [Error! Unresolved reference BeginningOfTime] [Sep. 11th, 2006|05:06 pm]

It seems well said by seawasp today. One of these days I'll even get around to being someplace he is to turn from fanboy into converser or something.

My thoughts were more influenced to respond to what zimarra had to say, though.

Rambly, and not getting fixed until it's not a journal, but an article. (Blog postings are not articles. Don't let anyone fool you...)
Rambly, as advertised...Collapse )

So, after barning a decklist from John Friggin' Rizzo of Friggorid infamy, setting Steve and Paul up with the best two decks in Standard, and a last minute tweak of two of the decks to be compatible, Steve, Paul, and I settled in at Table 4 for round one of the last convenient Pro Tour Qualifier of the Team Constructed season. We dithered a bit during registration about which way to line up the players... and made the Good Play of the Day and put me center seat, with Steve and Heartbeat on the A seat and Paul running Ghost Husk in the C seat. Full report here

We've been loving the format for the huge difference it makes to be working as a team where your teammates input is important in how the games feel; and the ability of your team to carry your deck against random bad matchups.

There were some amazingly amusing events, including stting down across from friggin' Rizzo with a deck that differed by 6 cards in 75 from his.

And at the end of the day, I look down at the cards as I am picking up my deck and say.... "Holy cr@9, we're going to Charleston!"

My itinerary has me leaving Albany on 15 June at 1840, returning 19 June at 1600.
Hotel not yet selected.

collwen should update in a bit about hopelrailmantic.

Quest Diagnostics patient invoicing system is absolutely atrociously bad.

"If I submitted work of this quality to my boss, I'd never hear the end of how bad it was" kind of bad.

"If I submitted this quality of work product to my boss, he'd wonder what kind of alcohol I was hiding in my desk" kind of bad...

I mean really, if you can identify me to log me in and take my money for a payment, why can't you show me any / all invoices that are outstanding for me, and their status with submission to my insurance carrier?

Why can't you get through your heads that I am the responsible party on the insurance that is carried in my name?

How is it that the insurance that was right in February is wrong in May?

What kind of bad data integrity practices do you run there?
