Sometimes you have no choice! I have been in the position where I have had a large accumulate leave balance and was told I had to take it as they would not pay me out.

Just look at the damage caused by AM radio. In Australia all the talk back radio and shock jocks are on AM and the amount of hate and damage that is caused is considerably worse than any thing 5G can come up with.
And then consider the ELF band! Able to bring down aircraft especially around the Harold E Holt naval communications centre.
Maybe play about with it before you comment?
So it will support all of my MFC UI code, my ProC Oracle database access code and other such UI and DAL interfaces?
Over the last 30 years very little of the C/C++ code I have written has been 'pure', for it to work under WebAssembly it would have to have the UI and the DAL rewritten.

Its like when you play a country music record backwards.

Consumer applications that only only run on Windows such as retail POS, warehouse, pharmacy, doctors surgery management software etc.
It might be possible to move these to the cloud, but the costs involved are high especially for specialist applications with a small installed user base such that it would not be currently economic.
Yes In Australia it ended up being a non event because people like me did things like working bloody hard for 18 months replacing a banking package fly in fly out for a regional bank.
I ended up with an absolutely obscene awesome level of frequent flier points. Me and the misses spent the next year on several holidays including the UK.
being employed is literally a get out of jail free card for any type of driving offense including running people down and killing them
Only if you need your drivers licence for employment.
As it is compared to many other countries your normal aussie drivers are crap. Can't keep left, always on the mobile phone, no idea what an indicator is, etc...
believed that any food was acceptable as long as it didn't actually trigger the gag reflex
Coming from a commonwealth country with an abundant supply of nature food where butter was cheaper than margarine. I was stunned by the quality of British food in places like the works canteen.
I just could not believe that my work mates considered that this was quality. It was then explained to me the concept of a "school" dinner. Whoa, my immediate thought was child abuse.
I ended up married to an English lady and returning to said commonwealth country and English lady if I'm not careful will revert to type with an evening meal of cheap baked beans on toast or a salad using something called "salad cream" which appears to be a by product of some unknown industrial chemical process making soap or something.
I have to say that the USA is a damn fine place to visit and most folk that you'll meet there are damn fine people
NOT in Texas I felt extremely unsafe, wall to wall guns. I've been through Europe, Asia, Africa, parts of the Middle East and the Pacific. The states are the only place I've been in the world where you walk into a club and there is sign check your guns and knifes here.
The word "bear". The moment you're not touching the arm, you are not bearing it.
So if the gun is in the gun rack in the back window of your truck it is now illegal?
I would love to see that one enforced in TX...
When a similar situation happened in Australia not so long ago, one reason was because the windmill operators hadn't RTFM
No wrong, the problem was the whole grid collapsed and I mean collapsed there was a whole line of power pylons twisted and lying on the ground. Bit difficult to continue when a large chuck of your gird is missing.
Attempting to blame everything on renewables just doesn't cut it, just recently in Indonesia they had a total shutdown of the power grid after a single gas powered turbine failed. And incidentally the whole gird is gas turbine powered!
But if I've allocated a and b and already verified that they are the same size, whats wrong with using strcpy?
The elephant in the middle of table table isn't when you first create this beautiful piece of software it is years down the track as it is maintained.
Some future developer changes the allocation of either a or b as they need to store a longer string. Your use of strcpy may several calls below where the change has been made and difficult to spot.
The single biggest cost with software is in the maintenance.
"This sounds exactly like something software engineers come up with"
Yep, I done that a few times as a joke / attempt to push for a requirement. Especially when a dumb ass BA / point haired one won't get their sh*t together. And a couple of these have actually made it into production.
Dilbert is so close to reality sometimes... Wally is my hero.
