Fair enough, and it wasn't a veiled insult or anything :)  I just
truly want to know why people would still use that particular
convention with modern OO languages and IDEs.  Visual Studio is
supposed to be the worlds greatest IDE and yet developers routinely
prefix class/member variables with _/m_ to differentiate them from
method/local vars - should this not be the job of the IDE if it truly
is confusing?

It's like that Systems Hungarian notation (where you specify the
datatype as part of the variable name) - guess I'm too young to
appreciate when it may have been useful
