Sorting it all Out Michael Kaplan's random stuff of dubious value Be sure to read the disclaimer here first!
A question was asked the other day.
A question about the Win32 API.
More specifically, about the GEOID API.
You know, the one exposed in Regional and Language Options in Vista/Windows 7 and Regional Options in Windows 8:
I wonder at the remote picture of my Windows 7 machine show it to be in the Fiji Islands (perhaps bitter about how much more I'm using Windows 8?) while the remote picture of my Windows 8 machine shows it be in the United Kingdom (with a partial localization into Cherokee despite the fact that it decided to not go to anywhere all that Cherokee.
Jan -- why do my machines appear to have a bigger travel budget than I do?!?
Anyway, the question:
If you can
then couldn't you build some amazing feature for mobile users who travel a lot?
The answer is....
Does anyone know the answer about integrating GEOID support here?
Pretend it is an interview question, and the best answerer will have a job as my paid intern.
Disclaimer: I have neither budget nor headcount at my disposal for any such internship (thus the prepended pretend "suspension of disbelief" directive. I just want to get some fun responses!
Can you take some or all of these pieces, and maybe some chickenwire and duct tape, and build a solution?
What is the answer?
Answering comments moderated until tomorrow, when I'll answer it and/or point to the answerers!
