        Hi Christian - if you'd like to write some articles on algorithms, that would be great! If you get in touch with us hello@developerfusion.com and I can put you in touch with our editor.

          Matt - this works fine if you paste

          class Test {
          // code goes here
          }

          around it. Will get this fixed anyhow - thanks for the heads up.

            This issue only affects compilation statements when used within parameter lists, but will see what we can do :)

              Unfortunately we cannot know what are methods and what are properties (in general - I realise these are specialized cases). Plus, Visual Studio should automatically add these for you when you paste it in?

                We shall investigate feasibility of changing our units based on the visitor country. Not everyone is English, kind sir! :-)

                  Hey - yep, those sound like sensible ideas. By the newest discussion entries, I presume you mean include the most recent post in the description of the entry? So it's more a feed of posts rather than a feed of threads?

                    If you uncheck the box for clipboard copying, the site should set a cookie to remember your preference? (so you won't ever get prompted again, and the checkbox will stay unchecked?)

                      We're actually cheating at the moment.

                      myObj == null? "Null" : myObj.Thinger

                      is getting converted to

                      If(myObj Is Nothing, "Null", myObj.Thinger)

                      in VB.NET... as in VB9 onwards the "If" operator was introduced that *does* shortcircuit. Perhaps we should flag some kind of warning for earlier versions of VB.NET

                        I’m not sure there’s a general rule (unfortunately). For example, something like

                        Dim innerGroup As List(Of Object)
                        Dim innerEnum As IEnumerable(Of String) = innerGroup.Cast(Of String)()

                        is valid. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

                          I've reduced the limit on the title to 15 characters... which should hopefully be okay, but I'm going to look in to ways to make the whole posting process more intelligent (suggest related articles, related tags etc as you're posting)
