comment Can I trust the Basic schedule equation?
Not that I know anything about what you're talking about, but is Basic supposed to be capitalized in this question?

comment Is Code Complete still Code Complete?
@ThomasOwens this would be like me asking on Christianity if the Summa Theologica is still the Summa Theologica. I think I'm beginning to see your reasoning, but I still think it's wrong.

Just got notified that my beloved 2 year old question is notable and much to my chagrin I find it closed. Do the right thing and stay classy Programmers

comment Memory concerns while plotting escape from DLL Hell in Delphi
@WarrenP, we just stopped supporting win2k. So, we'll be worrying about 2k3 for a while I'd imagine. I write software for nursing homes and they don't necessarily have the most robust servers, some do, but most don't and we've got to write to our clients' needs, not necessarily determine them.

comment How to negotiate with software vendors who do not follow HL7 standards
That's probably our problem, too often, and in fact all the time, we are the "Interface Spec Takers" not the "Interface Spec Makers", is that common for EHR Software? We'd like to say, just follow the spec, but pretty much the only thing we write in to contracts is "we refuse to parse free text", which is the most abhorrent detail.

comment Memory concerns while plotting escape from DLL Hell in Delphi
@GrandmasterB good point, that'll affect the overhead, I edited it in there. It's quite a bit, but there aren't a lot of other resources that aren't already loaded at runtime.

comment What should developers know about Windows executable binary file compression?
Also, it doesn't say what the tradeoffs are, only the benefits. If there weren't tradeoffs why wouldn't my linker compress the file?

comment What should developers know about Windows executable binary file compression?
Did you look at the website I linked to? Does it say anything about dynamically linking DLLs? No. does it say anything about compressing DESCENT 2? Yes. Does it say anything about compressing Netscape 4.06? Yes.
