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.
More often than not when I am going to post on a forum I find myself clicking on the "Edit Post" image of the post I want to respond to instead of remembering the "Post Reply" buttons at the top and bottom of the page. This, of course, errors to "Only admins can do that". I don't know if this has been ingrained in my mind by my other frequents to different forums or if this is typical user behavior. Just something to think about.
I can tell you that this is even more embarrassing when you *are* an administrator - I can't tell you how often I started to accidentally edit a post instead of replying to it. Fortunately, until now I've always noticed before committing the changes...
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
