Yes, I tend to agree, but finding API details when you don't have a MSDN subscription can be a b****.

The one thing I like about Java over EVERY other language I have tried to work with is the self-describing documentation that can be viewed with any HTML browser.  Moreover, it is instantly available online or off (because it just reads the details from the jar file as part of your SDK).  It's format is also VERY easy to understand.

If Microsoft's API documentation was that easy to access and understand, I probably never would have started with Java.  Since it isn't....

I'm not sure I follow you there. You can get all the documentation from the MS site. You don't need an MSDN subscription.

I actually have found the MSDN documentation to be much better and easier than other languages/SDKs/APIs.

Want a nightmare? Go try something with the Facebook API. Good f**king luck. In addition to being total s**t documentation, the API is broken. So, you are fumbling around in the dark, and running into land mines.

I'm not sure what problems you've been trying to solve. Most often I can solve problems by searching and finding community articles. Community is really important, and that's a strength in .NET. You don't get that with some things.

But for docs, MS is damn good. And one of the reasons I tend to side with MS technologies. I just don't like farting around with zero docs. I have better things to do, like solve my own problems. :)

This is a good piece of advice, many thanks

Wow. I don't remember seeing anything like this for a while. Very Myspace esque. Can't say that it is a shame that the site is disappearing though!!

General Software Discussion / Re: Universal Extractor

this tool claims to "extract files from any type of archive, whether it's a simple zip file, an installation program, or even a Windows Installer (.msi) package." i think, it will come in handy if anyone wants to just extract files from the installers

btw, happens to be written in AutoIt and acts a front-end for a lot of other cmd-line programs. more info at the website and its forum:

Universal Extractor
Main Window (see attachment in previous post)
Universal Extractor context menu (see attachment in previous post)

That is a really useful post, I can see myself using this product often :)

Well said!! Shame it is clearly untrue

Living Room / Re: A New Twist in Wikipedia?

I saw this on a Wikipedia page, but haven't seen it since:
 (see attachment in previous post)
Has anyone seen that?

I think it's a fantastic addition as I've seen some Wikipedia articles that have been flat out dominated by massively slanted views.

I guess the idea with this is that they look at the average stats within a framework rather than just haphazardly replying to random users

oh wow . . . didnt see ^that^ coming

Yeah, definitely did not see that coming! :) :up:
