Gotta love people who don't upgrade



  • I browse old posts when I'm bored, and maybe one day I'll have my unread list down to zero.

    I found a particularly disturbing old pair of posts which tingled my spam sense.

    I doubt they'll stay up much longer, provided the mods agree with me that they're spam.

    What did I find when visiting this spammers site?

    However, lurking in the shadows,

    [quote user="wikipedia"]This is the first major .NET Framework upgrade. It is available on its own as a redistributable package or in a software development kit, and was published on 3 April 2003. [...]Mainstream support for .NET Framework 1.1 ended on 14 October 2008[/quote]

    Hooray!

    Ok fine, it's a really slow day.  Gimme a break.



  •  Think thats bad? Goto Embarcadero and you'll find the exact same version of .NET. When you manage to break the site (not exactly difficult, clicking a link will sometimes do it quite easily) you find out its Delphi.NET. 



  • I just thought of this.  How long do you think it's been broken?



  • One of the other mods took care of deleting those posts.  Thanks for posting the direct links.

     Oh and at my work we (read I) just upgraded a few websites from .net 1.1 to 3.5.  I'd been asking to do this for a while but like a lot of companies, for us it didn't happen till it was unavoidable.  Conversion is a pain in the ass and takes time (if you want to do it right). Especially when one of those sites is a 1000+ page data driven monster!


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

     TRWTF is that .net 1.1 is still the default when you create a new site in IIS.



  • You sure about that? I'd thought Microsoft would have wanted to bury 1.1 underground by now.

    I think .NET Framework 1.1 aged very well. If I had to, I would still use my old copy of Visual Sudio .NET 2003 for a project. I can't say the same for Delphi 7 :D



  • I wonder if [url=http://forums.thedailywtf.com/forums/p/7838/146669.aspx]this guy[/url] have upgraded from Java 1.0 by now.



  • In the form "what do you not like about java 6.0" our old friend posts:

     


            Only 1.0.2 work with our codes other java version seem to have many bug.

    Hey! I love my Delphi 7! (Okay, the RAD features are lame, but the help file! ♥)

     I, for one, despise the fact that they insist on calling Java 5 and 6 "Java 5" and "Java 6"

     5.0 does not come immediately after 1.4 - EVER. It's also fun to confuse the hell out of people who haven't been around that long by specifying "Java 1.6" Never mind that fact that we went from "Java 2 1.4" to "Java 5"

     

    In fact, the less I think about Java version numbering, the less I want to kill somebody.

    I swear we've been over this before, but that's merely the product name.  The actual versioning is consistent:

    $ java -version
    java version "1.6.0_13"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_13-b03)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 11.3-b02, mixed mode, sharing)

    The real fun will be when Sun decides they need to bite the bullet and increase the major, going from Jave 1.11.0_24 to Java 2.0.  For realz.

     Yes, I know the real versioning is consistent - but the fucking marketing bullshit just hurts.

    They're saving that jump for when the language stops sucking.

    There are some jumps I'd like Sun to take before then.

    Off a bridge and into the waiting jaws of Oracle? Cuz they've done that.
