in reply to pack()ing Win32 Structures

I'm confused. Why do you keep front-paging your own nodes? You front-paged your own node last time you posted a top-level node and again this time. All your previous top-level nodes are previous to when the front-paging user was recorded, so I don't know if you did it before that change was made and the "front-page messages" in the Chatterbox went away.

It is generally considered taboo to front-page one's own nodes, so why do you continue to do it?

    I don't "keep front-paging my own nodes". I've done so twice. Ever.

    Further, I didn't realize this was considered taboo. I operate on the logic that if a question looks interesting, instructive, and the problem is relatively generic enough to appeal to a broad audience, I front-page it. The last two times, these happened to be my own nodes.

    In future, and to preclude such attacks, I'll be sure to let others moderate my nodes as applicable.
