Coding standards and beards

Had some good news today with regards to my group's coding standards. Last week I asked for a group consensus with regards to coding practices.
This is always a fun discussion! Religious wars abound.

Anyway, aside from getting my requests of not using NULL and not using Hungarian notation shot down. When I suggested some template practices, I was told not to use templates or the STL. I was miffed; I was told that templates are arcane! And that STL has lots of bugs; although when asked they didn't know what these bugs were.

Today we came to an agreement, we will wrap the STL classes used so if they do present a problem they can be removed. Good thing, I was already preparing an email about stagnation of skills in development groups and suggesting I might be in the wrong group.

Also I shaved my beard off the other day, no more Grizzly Weinstein. It just wasn't me.

    I should copyright my DNA. Then if I were ever sued for paternity, I could counter-sue for copyright violations for the derivative work!

    Beat my old time by a few seconds, but the old time was with no incline, the new time is at 1% 3 miles @ 1% incline - 20 minutes 54 seconds.
