slightly crazed .net junkie.

Developer since 2000. Consciously decided to go the MS route due to their tooling.

fairly serious guitarist (7 years or so - currently learning lots of old blues, Howling wolf etc) and am increasingly spending time getting back into Go.

Current specialisms: SQL, EF40 + T4, WCF, linq, lambda, silverlight4, moq, pex, moles - anything needed to get the job done really.

comment VirtualBox: two network interfaces (NAT and host-only ones) in a Debian guest on Ubuntu
cheers, mine was the same. My problem was that when i had the NAT adapter first in vbox the other (host) adapter would try to use the dhcp server on that adapter and all would go wrong. When I ordered the adapters in vbox as host only then NAT all started to work (irrespective of their ordering in linux interestingly enough). Netctl didn't have this problem in another vm.

comment Is the universe fundamentally deterministic?
It is philosophical. You have introduced a conceptual dualism which was derived from the world which presents a logical disjunction and then asked which side of the disjunction the world represents. Both and neither. The answer invariably is that neither concept is adequate to describe it. Its far more subtle and the concepts are not actually mutually exclusive if they are to be modified to fit into the world. Its a problem of where do you stop the chain of reasoning. Physics is removal of non-deterministic notions.

comment How does params work in c# (One method allegedly hiding another)
I changed the types as I was wondering if id get a compile error with the int array (whilst talking with someone about it). As the entire array is null made no difference. It just eliminated one theory. I don't think you have quite answered the question. Sorry. Am tempted to hunt about to see if we have a reflector license here. I suspect the reason why it behaves like this is how you say however.

comment I want await to throw AggregateException, not just the first Exception
updated ... ofc a task handles its own errors ... a task it a unit of encapsulation around a unit of work. The work of handling its exceptions I would argue is most definatley a part of that or else you are creating a locking nightmare for yourself as 100 threads all throw exceptions and block on one piece of code - unless you make it have no state at which point u would realise that it essentially sits in the task itself anyway ... or compromise with me and pass in a lambda to handle the exception.
