An interesting and quite funny story that I just read can be found here. It details a mail sent to a Linux project from a teacher believing them to be some kind of illegal software pirates.

And of course the response is also shown.

Rules of branching......

Just found that someone with whom I work has changed the name of a visual studio solution file in one of our branches. The reason was that people where finding it difficult to know which branch they where working on.

I don't agree with this as it goes against what I understand to be branching. I would be interested to find out what other people think on the issue.

.Net Get Assembly Build Date.

Being of more of a (u)/(l)inux mindset these days I like to include some basic info on apps that I write, even simple 4 line command line applications. In C# I have been trying to create a simple library of functions that I tend to use over and over in command line apps and I have just added a nice little method to get the applications build date using reflection.

I would love to own up to writing the code but honors must go to this post on Coding Horror.

There is a link at the bottom of the post above with a work around.
