I think of all the quizzes on facebook the IQ test is the worse. In a nation where we are taught from childhood and whose declaration of independence states “that all men are created equal” the action of publicly displaying an IQ score is destructive. It states that we all are not created equal; assaulting a core cultural belief. It causes resentment in those who score lower and arrogance in those who score higher. Even though an arbitrary measurement like IQ shows that we are not equal; it’s just downright rude to mention it or display it is like some badge. No good has ever come from utterance of the words: “I’m better then you.”

Recently one of my projects at work was moved to a different SCM. After the move a message box that said “The project file ‘ ‘ has been renamed or is no longer in the solution.” would appear every time we tried to compile the solution. After a while I figured out how to fix this. The solution has a silverlight project; somehow the web app that hosted it got corrupted. The fix was simple right click on the project and click “Properties” and under “Silverlight Applications” tab remove the blank silverlight project and add the intended silverlight project. The code now compiles.
