Code Helmet

As part of the website spring clean I have started a wiki over at WikiDot for programming.  Originally I had intended it to be primarily tips and stuff about Syncfusion but the general C# content has dwarfed that so far.

Why “Code Helmet”?  When I was contracting at GAM they had an open plan office (the norm for the UK).  This led to a near constant drone of conversation … often, but not always, work related.  Normally this was fine but sometimes, when working on a particularly knotty problem you wouldn’t any interruptions.  The ‘solution’ was to wear a plastic toy Viking helmet: this flagged to others that you didn’t want to be disturbed.  This became known as the ‘Code Helmet’ (although there were actually 2).
