Lowering the bar - example of modern coding by microsoft

by   Nicholas de Lioncourt on April 28 2021 02:15 zulu

THIS HAS BECOME THE MODEL FOR WRITTEN CODE (see the three images in this article).

Before inclusion into my projects, I inspect the code of others' published frameworks; even if I must decompile the assembly and run obfuscation-reversal utilities.

For what reason?

Well, take this non-sensical feast of vulnerability spaghetti, written by Microsoft GITHUB to satisfy the most undiscerning script-kiddie consumer!

Need I imagine where this embarrassment was written?

One of the salient justifications for NOT using others' "professionally written" code.

 

The first image is a typical example from Microsoft's GITHUB framework (with my comments as callouts).More...

Well Explains Why I am neither right nor left wing

by   Nicholas de Lioncourt on April 27 2021 03:00 zulu

My 'Political Compass' results reveal quite well my disassociation with the LEFT and RIGHT wings (see image). 

For WHAT reason should the masses be SO OPPOSED to self-determination and personal responsibility?More...

The Fallacies of Voting ID Opponents

by   Nicholas de Lioncourt on April 13 2021 06:53 zulu

Oh the uninspired Fallacies of Voting ID Opponents - the simplicity of simple-minded PREVARICATORS, SO EASILY DEFEATED.

Since I was already writing, I spent - at most - 14-minutes imagining and drawing a voter identification process using existing, and free, federal requirements.

conceits on the Self

by   Nicholas de Lioncourt on April 12 2021 05:27 zulu

To the misfortunate reader suffering my conceits on the Self, I offer no apology that I am ALWAYS ebullient, even intoxicated, when I have left some sanctimonious collectivist to suffer paroxysms of red-faced outrage.More...

Double All Student Loan Debt as a Tax on Stupidity

by   Nicholas de Lioncourt on April 08 2021 04:12 zulu

From opportunistic politicians to the useless masses of over-indulged students, these blights upon mankind demand all college education made free through taxpayers' work - "work", a concept unknown to both the aforementioned - and all existing debt nullified.More...

The Thief in Chief Defines The Left

by   Nicholas de Lioncourt on April 08 2021 03:23 zulu

THE THIEF IN CHIEF...

Must confess; although I am a political agnostic, this imbecile is the perfect representative of every quality that defines THE LEFT:

No You Are Not a Hero and We are not In this together

by   Nicholas de Lioncourt on April 08 2021 02:45 zulu

"WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER... WITH OUR HEREOS..."

No and no.

Again and again and again businesses must append contrived sentiments of 'heroism' to their products. How pathetic these companies promoting campaigns of consumer manipulation and retail auto-eroticism; wherein everyone from mask-wearing, self-righteous beldams to physicians' front-desk administrators are portrayed as intrepid heroes, sacrificing their mortality to selflessly move among the plague-ridden masses...

 

No. Although tragic, this is not The Plague.

Just another opportunity for narcissists to justify their authoritarian hypochondria.

Just another opportunity for harridans to assuage their empty lives by controlling the lives of others.More...
