.NET/C# duh moment of the day: “A char can be implicitly converted to ushort, int, uint, long, ulong, float, double, or decimal (not the other way around; implicit != implicit)”

The Wiert Corner – A while ago I had a “duh” moment while calling a method that had many overloads, and one of the overloads was using int, not the char I’d expect.

JT @ Embarcadero – Now, that I am at my #1 favorite feature, I am having a tough time deciding between these two - uniform initialization syntax or rvalue references, but I am going to have to go with initialization syntax this time.

For example, consider the case of a Windows application that doesn't have a title bar, how can we move such a form?

Not that I don’t wish it were true, only that I fear that ...

JT @ Embarcadero – My next top C++11 feature is actually a feature discontinuation.
