Sorting it all Out Michael Kaplan's random stuff of dubious value Be sure to read the disclaimer here first!
I remember Trader Joes deleting Limonata...I was gutted (in CA).
Fortunately, Whole Foods carried it, so I was able to continue getting it. Then I moved to TX...Whole Foods here had it...so far so good...
But then about a month ago it disappeared, and hasn't been back since. And no-one there seems to know what has happened!
seems like a slow conspiracy to me...
Your blog, with all it's personal and "work" content was the first time I felt a personal connection with a blogger and the first time I really felt that Microsoft was made of individuals that cared.
As a very random blogger, I have zero room to talk... but I know how I would feel if you stopped. I would be sad in any and every language I know.
Being 2 weeks on vacations and things start to go down hill.
So I am a little late in realizing you have stopped blogging.
This seems to be a trend lately.
People are harassed or threatened because of their openness.
That is a is a very bad thing to occur.
Your blog has been an invaluable resource to me (I18N)
Also from time to time I read your personal blogs
I hope you will start blogging again very soon.
Maybe as an anonymous blogger.
If the blog is about I18N we will recognize you, because you are one of the very few people with a very deep understanding of I18N.
Thank you for the enlightening post. Now can you explain the following?
I created several directories, named "a", "b", "b-c", "b-c-d", "b-c2-d", "b_c_d", "b_c2_d", "c", and "b-c2". They sorted as follows:
Why does "b_c2_d" come before "b_c_d", and "b-c2-d" come before "b-c-d", yet "b-c" comes before "b-c2"?
That's in Explorer. In Excel, it sorts in a slightly different, yet still inconsistent, order:
Note that in Excel, "b_c_d" comes before "b_c2_d", yet "b-c2-d" comes before "b-c-d".
Old post, still valid. Thanks, solved my trouble today, I couldn't connect to \\server\ since I couldn't type the char '\'.lol
I am not sure I agree with you in the sense that sure, it is a personal post, and yes you need to continue making it painfully clear it is just you, not Microsoft, talking, because many readers just land here off a google search, realize you work for Microsoft and misinterpret what that means... but... so what? I don't get the leap from there to a lack of support from your management.
Comparing to Raymond, who I think keeps a more observational tone in his Windows posts, I like your attutude which shows more personality in your discussion of issues and even problems in Microsoft technologies. The fact that you're invested comes through and yet no attitude about Microsoft. I'm not even saying you're loyal, you just recognize Microsoft for what it is, a large company with a lot of people in it -- they may make mistakes but there are no sinister agendas.
Your posts will miss me.
I'm not in the business of localization, but you make me discover and learn so much about internal things for dev... and poor localization knowledge of developers (you see the "é" in my name, very often scrapped, even in french program or databases...
Open us our minds , learn us more !!!

If you declare it Private is it Privatization?

This is a StrCmpLogicalW issue -- Explorer uses the function and Excel does not, so differences between the two are based on the difference in the way numbers are handled....
