u r wrong. by hulver (4.00 / 5) #1 Fri Jun 27, 2008 at 04:05:51 AM EST
Creating a label in a dialog box that can be copied and pasted takes more effort than one that can't, and is actually quite unusual. It also uses more resources, as each control that can be copied and pasted needs to have a window handle. Whereas controls that don't (like standard label controls) don't need to have one.

So it's not that your programmers have turned something off.

There are 40K Unihan on Plane 2 by ReallyEvilCanine (4.00 / 1) #4 Fri Jun 27, 2008 at 04:58:16 AM EST
Many are obscure but many are names. SQL Server 2008 still doesn't support UTF-8.

SQL server 2008 by TPD (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Jun 27, 2008 at 05:50:23 AM EST
FUCKING BASTARDS!!!!!!

This is not the first time I have sworn about the lack of utf8 in SQL Server (and it most likely won't be the last)

why sit, when you can sit and swivel with The Ab-SwivellerTM

Point-n-click has its cost by ReallyEvilCanine (4.00 / 1) #6 Fri Jun 27, 2008 at 06:06:27 AM EST
SQL Server isn't that bad, surprisingly. But to continue to refuse to support UTF-8 simply because MS gambled on a version of Unicode and got it wrong is just plain stupid. It would make things so much easier if they'd move Win7 to UTF-8 internally as well. And use the stupidly optional BOMs everywhere. Yes, I really could go on for hours about this sort of shit.

Shift-JIS by ucblockhead (4.00 / 2) #8 Fri Jun 27, 2008 at 07:00:49 AM EST
I could tell you a story about a certain group that discovered that a certain file format didn't have Shift-JIS but did have UTF-8 and so came up with the brilliant solution of simply putting the Shift-JIS data in the UTF-8 field and relying on the programmer to know that it wasn't really UTF-8.

But I don't think I'd ever be able to stop.
