just goofing off with MonoGame and it has this content pipeline thing where you can deserialize data from XML which is great, except that finding an example of reading an array is turning into a goose chase.

Its mastodon technology, but sports! MLB wants to fix things by tweaking post season so that regular season games matter more. They concluded that other sports do well because the post season is bigger. Nah, Baseball's problem is the 160+ regular season games each team plays. NFL teams play 16. As a share, each MLB game is inconsequential and easy to skip. Its easy chose to watch something else and people do exactly that, whereas if you skip and NFL game, you skip everything for that team that week.
Microsoft SQL server has a feature in place since 2005 called Multiple Active Result Sets (MARS), and only a very few people think this is a bad idea.
I think its a bad idea, not because it makes the server do more work, that's pretty trivial on modern hardware, but because it gives developers a pass on writing smelly code.

There is a referral program, so if you do apply let me know so I can tell you what name to put in the referred by on the application.

Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion man.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
