Been a good run!

So I started using Stack Overflow as a user back in 2013 – I’d lurked before, but never contributed.

The collapse of the traffic on B&B UK meant that I’d finally taken the plunge and learnt .net.  This was a blessing in disguise, now 3 year later we are producing (together with MVC) the best website/applications I’ve ever made.
 
Anyway.. So I was playing around with some Java libs and this happened.




Well.. actually it didn’t.    I noticed within a few days that I must have been mistaken and it didn’t make any difference to the amount of memory.

The thing is.. with SO you need some reputation to “highlight” questions – get them answered sooner.  You can’t pay or bribe or offer favours.  Nothing but reputation.  So I was getting a few pluses..  And my family needed me.  So I just left it.   Clock, Clock – Even though’ the answer is wrong.  I keep getting more reputation!!

Which means I can ask questions (and giveaway reputation) which means they sure-as-hell get answered.

Stackoverflow is a very well made site:

  •  - It (and this little bit of naughtiness) has been one of the reasons I’ve been able to get my new site (http://redplanet.travel) off the ground
  •  -I’ve also incorporate the banging “reputation” system into Red Planet Travel to encourage contributions.


So there it was.   I going to have to deleted it now…   Let’s see what it does to my reputation?!

Hmm.. I deleted it.  I’m supposed to loose my reputation.. but nothing appears to have happened.

Maybe it go later.

Thanks anyway for all the fish!

Wouldn't it be great to work together and create a "distributed search engine" with the index spread across thousands of peer...
