This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
1. It's always a good idea to hint at what you need help with in your message subject. That way it'll catch the attention of those mostl likely to be helpful. Generic help requests often get passed over. "Need Help URGENT" requests frequently get passed over, since we've noticed that often the level of expressed urgency is inversely proportional to the amount of study the requester has invested. We're not being mean, but after all, nobody here is getting paid to provide answers, so we look at what interests us first.
2. This thread is a classic example of why we implore people to use the Queen's English and not SMS l33tsp33k, curtated words, Cockney Rhyming Slang (if you'd adam) or other off-mainstream usages. I'm a native English speaker, and not only can I not understand the question, I can't understand one of the possible answers. What then of people whose native languages are not English? How can we expect them to understand and help out?
We're not asking for great literature here. American programmers mostly can't spell or use apostrophes, and I can't type, but for everyone's sake, if you are having trouble expressing yourself, find someone who can help translate. You'll get answers much faster!
Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
