    You real developers are lucky

    So, I decided to spend today dedicated to just optimizing my apps. Like shortening them, etc. So, I went through my older apps and oh my goodness thousands of lines of codes that were unnecessary. I managed to put all the common subroutines into a class and voila I shortened the codes by...

    A funny story about development for windows 8

    You are correct. Metro Netflix would never have passed the first step, the automated one. In one of my apps, I had to add in an intro page to get it through the first step. Then it authenticated fine after. My current project is a very expansive project for educational tools. It is one of...

    A funny story about development for windows 8

    I understand your skepticism. I really do. I wouldn't have believed this myself had someone else told me this and I never had to do printing in my app. 200 lines of code was what was necessary to (1) print at all and (2) be able to print multiple pages. The test app that I used to write...

    A funny story about development for windows 8

    I honestly hope MS isn't really going down that route. As a developer, I've dealt too much with braindead users who think facebook IS the internet. One of my apps allow people to do very complex chemistry calculations. It's the only one of its kind that does what it does, and it does it...

    A funny story about development for windows 8

    MS needs to learn to do things better. This isn't about me or any developer sharing our codes. This is about MS making an effort to make the API and the sample code make more sense. When I looked through their sample code, I was confused as hell. Have you ever tried to read someone else's...

    A funny story about development for windows 8

    You know how people have been complaining that quality apps are few in numbers in the windows 8 winstore? Well, I've been trying to help MS out by porting some of my quality apps over to windows 8. I've recently ported one of my more useful apps into the metro interface. The app itself is...

    No Space Left on my C Drive - Help

    I'm just old enough to remember when having 1 gb of hard drive space was a really big deal. My brother and I were like "holy cow, what are we going to do with all this space?"

    No Space Left on my C Drive - Help

    There are currently only 3 major manufacturing facilities for these hard drives. Doesn't really matter which hard drive you buy anymore. They all have components from the same places anyway.

    No Space Left on my C Drive - Help

    Having a cleaner will not solve your problem. Yes, it will clear up some space, but seeing how you only got 1.5gb left, it's not going to clear more than a couple gb, if that. Go out and buy another hard drive.

    Familiar w/ Windows 8.1??

    Then stop trying to make it sound like the desktop is dead. It is optimized for both touch and desktop use. Just like the built in UI for blind users is optimized for blind users. Are you going to start arguing that windows is built only for the blind? By the way, here is a screenshot of...

    Haha my question is will MS approve any of these start menus on their winstore?

    If the Start button returns with Blue, will you use it?

    One time my friend asked me if Indian people are smarter than white people. I asked her why did he think that? She said it seems like most doctors in our area is Indian. And its true, there are a lot of Indian doctors. Well, I thought about it for about 30 seconds and asked her how many...

    Then can you please tell me how the following screen hinders your workflow?

    If the Start button returns with Blue, will you use it?

    This is an unfair assessment. Windows 8 does not force anyone to use a touchscreen. It works just as well, if not better, with a keyboard and mouse. My dual 24" monitor system ain't got no touch, and it works just fine for me. Your post makes it sounds like the user has to have touch in...

    If the Start button returns with Blue, will you use it?

    Back when I was a TA during my grad years, there were many students that did badly on their tests and quizzes. They would come to the TA office or the Prof's office and complain, giving every excuse under the sun. By the end of the semester, 20 grandmothers were dead and 30 dogs had been run...

    If the Start button returns with Blue, will you use it?

    Funny that you mentioned aero glass, because when it first came out the tech forums were saturated with people crying bloody murder. Some went as far as predicting Microsoft's demise. You know, the same rhetoric we've been seeing from whiners of windows 8.

    8.1 confirmed for August

    Haha, attack the analogy instead of the point. I didn't say everyone everywhere should always keep their fingers together. Beginners are not competitive swimmers. They can't control their fingers like competitive swimmers. You tell them to spread their fingers slightly and they spread out...
