You just can't miss easy blacks like that and get away with it when playing Ronnie.

Well, I tried to get Ubuntu running on my brand new Windows 8 laptop yesterday, and of course I ran into problems.  I got it installed, using the Windows installer, and when I tried to reboot the computer so I could boot into Ubuntu, it gave me errors and wouldn't boot up.  So I then tried running it in Virtual Box.  It ran, but performance was sluggish, so I uninstalled that.  Any advice?  I've heard about the Windows 8 boot protection (or however it's phrased).  I don't want to harm my Windows 8 installation.

I must be the only person not excited about Diablo III. Of course, that may change tomorrow when I see everyone playing it ;) #diablo3

As a long time VB programmer, I started to learn C# only to think to myself, "Is this necessary?"  There used to be a huge gap between VB and C# a few years ago, but VB has caught up.  Is there really a need to switch to C# permanently?  Thanks for any input you can give.

Agreed with +Eli Mumford . I started several years ago in VB, and moved to C#. At the time, it was disorienting, and I had the same thoughts - "all this excessive punctuation" and "case-sensitivity SUCKS." 

I quickly grew out of it. I also have come to appreciate the expressiveness of the curly-braces and such. 

As Eli indicates, you come out of it much better suited to explore other languages such as C, C++, Java, Javascript, etc. 

Not to mention that learning more languages (even within the .net framework) only helps you become more versatile.

Best place in Belleview for pizza. Love going there! In fact, we were going to go there on Friday but the line of people waiting to get in was way too long, so we had to go elsewhere. I'll be going again VERY soon :)
