why can't I browse old topics?
Hmm, it is Apr 7 and it seems that the forums have been so active that the "Recent Topics" page shows topics no further back than Mar 31; which is unfortunate, since I wanted to see the discussions that invariably erupted from Joel's last post on language support for RDBMS, which seemed to suggest adding even more support for the anti-patter of sprinkling one's code with raw SQL. :)
The only way I know to browse old topics is to search in google.
They are all here, check it out.
Joel believes this chat is like a conversation. Say it & let it go.
"""Say it & let it go"""
We've already talked about that. Knock it off.
This topic itself is as old as the forum. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the very next topic once a post got booted off the bottom. It will probably be the last topic when the forum dies.
And then someone comes along with a pithy quotation
