Ry Jones seems particularly amused by things I’ve written


I can't believe he saves this stuff.

    Well whoever he is, he doesn’t want the rest of us to see it – "You are not authorized to view this page."

  2. Tom Bowen says:

    Sure that’s not a message from a filter or firewall on your end?  Works fine for me.

  3. Keeron Modi says:

    lol, those are funny. Raymond, can you post something similar (I know it could be hard to remember your own quotes :) ) or have that guy dig up some old emails and expand that list. Would love to hear more of those ‘developer practices’.

    My my, you do get a little crotchety at times, aye?  Or maybe he just can’t tell when your humor has gone to 11 on the wryness scale?

    Although I can see a great 10-best list of responses to "Why isn’t this Feature in the product?"

    Speaking of crotchetting, I am beginning to understand how MSVs and other developers become positively snippy over the kinds of questions that get asked on forums like the one for VC++ Express Edition.  The problem with being clueless, of course, is that we don’t know that we are and that there are things to do so our questions can have answers.  I have no idea how to nudge people in that direction in a non-face-to-face setting.

  5. Well, a lot of things you say are amusing. If that weren’t the case, I wouldn’t read it. There are plenty of sites that are "helpful," including the msdn reference. I don’t make a habit (perhaps I should?) of reading the msdn reference on a daily basis as a break.

    Tom – no, not from our firewall. It is a 403 from the server "IP address of the client has been rejected."

    Maybe he doesn’t like people outside the US looking at his blog.

  7. I have my collection of your comments. If only I could share them :)

    Works for me in Australia; guess he just doesn’t like your country/proxy.

    Doesn’t work form me in Peru

    HTTP Error 403.6 – Forbidden: IP address of the client has been rejected.

  10. Ry Jones says:

    There were some ACLs left over from an anti-spam adventure a few years ago. I just removed them – sorry, I’m a dork.

    From my DSL in the UK:

    C:>telnet blog.ryjones.org 80

    Connecting To blog.ryjones.org…Could not open a connection to host on port 80: Connect failed

    From my webserver (server farm in the US):

    % lynx blog.ryjones.org

    Making HTTP connection to http://www.ryjones.org

    Alert!: Unable to connect to remote host.

    Responds to ping from both machines, though.

    You haven’t been slashdotted, have you?

    Today’s User Friendly Comic (Feb 28) had a comic that I thought fit very well.  "Dear A-list blog dude, please link to my blog, k? thanks – c-list guy"

    http://www.userfriendly.org

    Standard disclaimers apply, I’m not affiliated, you might not get access, etc etc.

  13. Techboy says:

    I can’t access it, from the UK. :P

  14. Richard says:

    So all Ry needs to do is to quote this message to get a nicely recurisve data structure.

  15. Because that would require work.
