It must have been at least 10 years ago I read this joke and it still\napplies more than ever. I'm reading the help for the DeflateStream class and\none of the parameters for the constructor is leaveOpen. All the help file\nstates is "true to leave the stream open; otherwise, false". Great. For a\nstart I'm opening a stream and passing in another stream so the term "the\nstream" is ambiguous and it's pretty obvious it's talking about a stream\nanyway. What I'd really like to know Microsoft is when. :-) Can anyone shed\nany light on this.\n\n\n\n\nA helicopter was flying around above Seattle yesterday when an\nelectrical malfunction disabled all of the aircraft's electronic\nnavigation and communication equipment. Due to the clouds and haze\nthe pilot could not determine his position or course to steer to the\nairport. The pilot saw a tall building, flew toward it, circled, drew\na handwritten sign and held it in the helicopter's window. The sign\nsaid "WHERE AM I ?" in large letters.\n\nPeople in the tall building quickly responded to the aircraft, drew a\nlarge sign and held it in a building window. Their sign said, "YOU\nARE IN A HELICOPTER." The pilot smiled, waved, looked at his map and\ndetermine the course to steer to SEATAC (Seattle/Tacoma) airport and\nlanded safely.\n\nAfter they were on the ground, the co-pilot asked the pilot how the\n"YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER" sign helped determine their position. The\npilot responded, "I knew that had to be the MICROSOFT building\nbecause they gave me a technically correct but completely useless\nanswer."
