"HELLO WORLD" RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • the following thread was created for the purpose of getting to know the coders around us a little better, no matter what part of the world they are from.  basically, just a reply with your country's flag and the country name , just in case the image does not appear, is all that is needed .
    hopefully, by providing such information, it will lead to online searches about the countries, related foods ( always a plus ;o), educations, news, etc..  just a little something to broaden the mind while taking a break from coding..
    ---------------------

    to get started, click the following link located on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallery_of_country_flags
    -- locate your country's flag, right click it, and select the view image..
    -- this should bring up a webpage with just the flag of the country..
    -- copy the address of the webpage, which should end with the file extension of .png.
    -- click the html option next to the insert code block button on the toolbar .
    -- this should bring up the post in html format ( something every coder should know, html. ).
    -- click where you would like to add the image and add the following html code.
              <img src="">
    -- paste the previously copied url of the image in the " 's and click the update button..
     the final result should look similar to the following html code.
    <img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a4/Flag_of_the_United_States.svg/190px-Flag_of_the_United_States.svg.png">

    Is that a "general" E.U. flag?

    If so you aren't being specific.

  • No, that was our bad for not investigating that guy. I'd rather get an "apology" for 419 scams, but...that is also not specific to Nigeria, really. There are a lot of West Africans in my area, many are from Nigeria. They are great folks, but...they figured out my idea of grocery shopping after midnight, so now it is still busy at Wal-Mart when I go. Oh well.

    One of my best friends and favorite supervisors was from Ghana...almost next door.

    I am from Virginia originally....Illinois presently. (Actually, I am sitting in Iowa...at work.)

    Virginia was named for Queen Elizabeth I, by the way...and it is where it all started for America. No offense to Plymouth, and the NorthEast intended.

    We have had it about 4 to 6 inches deep locally, more inland towards Durham, Leeds and places near the Pennines.

    I am about 10 miles from the coast and the local roads were pretty bad for a while.

    The side roads and CUL-DE-SAC roads still have a bit of snow, ice and a bit of slush on them.
     I've been skidding and sliding in my car a bit. :-(

  • As Trujade shows a General USA flag, then I show the flag of the EU, I feel me more an inhabitant from the EU than from my state.

    In my idea there is more difference between behaviour from persons from the South West States in the USA and the North East States than in our cultures.
     
    If I do it like you, then I should show this flag which like yours has ruled the waves a long time.

    What is a country is a little bit confusing in Germanic languages like English an Dutch

    Examples are England, Scotland, Holland, Sealand, Frysland, Ireland which were in fact former counties, dukedoms and kingdoms

    Therefore I use simply state for those countries which you call countries, the EU is now something like was the Confederated States of the US.  

    England and Holland however are not even states, they are currently parts of the United Kingdom and the state mostly abrivated as The Netherlands (which are even only the northern part of all the Netherlands. The Netherlands are in fact most in the BeNeLux (not a state more a kind of union) while there are 2 (one partially) in France)

    Confusing is it not?

    But for me Calfornia is a state like the UK, France, Germany, Belgium etc.

    I graduated college in 2008 and have been programming with Visual Basic since then.  I have used VB6 and VB9 for automated test system development.  VB9 is still new to me but I am catching on.  I learn LabVIEW when I have free time as well.  I also have some experience with C and Assembly language, mainly from college.

    I feel for the southerners since they are not used to very harsh winters.  In MN it has been 30deg+ for the last few days and it will continue for at least a few more.  It's a heat wave considering it was -20deg about a week ago.

  • Minnesota is one of the few states where you have to shovel your roof on occasion.

    We only managed -15F, or so. Last January, we had a reading of -28F. If only the NWS' thermometer had been calibrated....it would have been a record low for the day.

    Next month ought to be fun for both of us. Tuesday was the first above 32F day of the year for us. Yesterday, we got to 40F.

    LabView is a really nice product. I've worked in data acquisition for a long time, but...most of the companies I've worked for roll their own data analysis and display software, which is good for me.

    I think that you will like .NET for some of the management of the automated testing.

    Again, I say...go Vikings. [I'm a fan since 1969...the Purple People Eaters. Its time to leave to loser record to the Bills.]

    Hi Cor,

    I do not regard the E.U. as one unit as not all E.U. countries use the Euro as their currency and
     some people do not like the idea of the European Union.

    The U.K. still has the £ and I bet we will for a long time to come.
    I don't think many people in the United Kingdom / Great Britain want us to switch to the Euro!!

    Lots of people in the U.K. still like to think of themselves as being English, Scottish, Welsh or Irish too!!

    There are many counties in England, I don't know how many, such as; Cleveland, Cheshire, Lancashire, Bedfordshire,
     Durham, Tyne & Wear, Northamptonshire etcetera, etcetera.

    Okay England is not a state in the same sense as each of the states of U.S.A. but many people here in the U.K.
     prefer the individual area "identity" and therefore prefer the flag of England or Scotland or Wales or Northern Ireland
    as appropriate, as opposed to the UNION flag, which is the 4th in my 1st post above.

    I'm just getting back to the Forum - been out fishing all day. I think it was around 60 today - beautiful day to be on the lake. But next time I'm taking some dynamite - stupid fish :(

    Not that I'm a Vikings fan - but I agree: go Vikings. Anytime I can slam the Cowgirls... Maybe Romo will forget his jockstrap at home???

    Since we have a coupls of people mentioning the playoffs - who do you like in the other games? It seems everyone so far is wanting the Vikings in this one. Maybe if Jeff responds to this thread we'll get 1 vote for the Girls.

    To narrow myself down a bit after forum user Mick Doherty stated He is in London, I looked for a county flag.

    I could not find one for the local county but here is the flag of Yorkshire ( named after the city of York ), which is the nearest.>>


    Flag of Yorkshire

    York is 47 miles south of my location according to Google maps.

    As Cleveland ( see >> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleveland,_England ) is also locally known as
     Teesside being based around the river Tees, I live in


     Middlesbrough


    The local county was formed from North Yorkshire and some areas north of the river Tees from county Durham.

    Hi Cor,

    Most of the larger U.K. towns and cities have their own football team, some counties have more than one town,
     depending on the size of the county. So therefore each county may have one or more football teams.


    Just so you know, Scotland and Wales also have various football teams.


    Middlesbrough, often shortened to BORO ,pronounced  "BU-RA" is where I am and the local team website.>>

    http://www.mfc.premiumtv.co.uk/page/Welcome   MFC = Middlesbrough Football Club

    not to be confused with any other team starting with an M such as MUFC   or   MCFC

    or even MTFC    or    MillwallFC    or any others.

    Not all teams have a unique acronym either. :-(

    The old football ground at AYRESOME PARK has since been demolished as has the adjacent
     MIDDLESBROUGH GENERAL hospital, which is where I was born. There are now more houses built on each area of land.


    The former football ground could be seen from parts of the old hospital.>>
    http://www.hospitalartstudio.co.uk/gallery.php?set=&extra=true&g=25&i=7a.jpg

    http://www.hospitalartstudio.co.uk/gallery.php?set=&extra=true&g=25&i=7b.jpg

    http://www.hospitalartstudio.co.uk/gallery.php?set=&extra=true&g=25&i=7.jpg

    The old hospital had a 126 year history, mostly online and in local media and the minds of many local residents.

    I bet many Middlesbrough residents miss seeing the old hospital as some of the local residents have to travel further to
     get to the new JAMES COOK HOSPITAL.

    Yes CAPTAIN JAMES COOK was born near here.





    We have a local JAMES COOK museum too.
    Marton village, where James Cook was born, is now part of the Middlesbrough area and is only about 5 miles away.

    Hi Cor,

    Here in the U.K. we would say a lower divison rather than a sub-division.

    A sub division is a sector or segment of something. The league tables simply used to be.>>

    Divison 1, Division 2 etcetera with Division 1 being the top table. Divison 1 became the
     PREMIER LEAGUE   a.k.a."THE PREMIERSHIP".

    Got another one...  only 2 miles from where I'm currently at work:

    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&source=hp&q=newcastle usa&rlz=1R2ADSA_enGB354&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wl

    New Castle, NH is a beautiful little island town with well-kept historic houses, some of which going back to America's first colonial period (1620-1680).  The residents tend to be very wealthy, with many belonging to long-standing local families (a quickly-becoming rarity in these parts where family farms have been all but obliterated and large tracts of land subdivided by recent generations who have lost their sense of familial tradition to the pull of over-priced land markets.

    The town is also home to a military fort with origins in the 1600's, but was (I'm sorry to say for you Brits) seiged during the Revolutionary War by local residents.  We've owned it since.

    http://www.nhstateparks.com/fortconstitution.html

    I actually did some archaeological work on the site of the fort.  Interesting fact:  in teh mid-to late 1800's it was one of the first adopters of the (then) military technology of modern-day concrete.  During my work I got to enter the old concrete tunnel network (which is usually off-limits).  It was really creepy, with the ceiling having been transformed into a sheet of stalagtites from the constent precipitation -- a man-made limestone cave.
