  1. Re: STAR WARS - The Force Awakens (NO SPOILERS)

    It costs 11.25 at my local cinema (not IMAX). I think maybe we're being ripped off in the UK.

    Very, very good film, though. :)

    It's worth pointing out that subsequent news reports mentioned the fact that there was an Al-Qaeda-supporting Facebook page that was registered to their home address (although I didn't realise you...

    Re: NSA, hope you can swim

    Unfortunately the people who were warning that it's getting progressively worse were derided as doom and gloom merchants, hence the 1 in 100 followed by 1 in 1000 claims. I think the Environment...

    Re: NSA, hope you can swim

    As far as I recall, it was generally agreed that those floods were once-in-a-generation, and very few people thought that anything similar would happen again so soon.

    Anyway, I know that it's the...

    Re: The Donald

    It's a policy that was made popular by Tony Blair. Before him, I think that most UK politicians by and large believed in what they were saying. Blair, however, based his entire career on focus groups...
  6. VS 2013 Re: Difficulty enabling health monitoring

    Thanks, David. I'm still negotiating with the infrastructure team about getting access to the server, so when I do I'll look into the aspects you've described. :)
  7. VS 2013 Difficulty enabling health monitoring

    According to this MSDN blog, it should be quite straightforward to add health monitoring to my website by adding this:

  8. ASP Datagrid - numbers being sorted like text

    I have an ASP datagrid which was some columns that contain numbers. However, when I sort, it's sorting them alphabetically. For example:

    0
    1
    10
    2
    23
    30

    How can I get it to sort them as...

    Hmmm. Okay, maybe I shouldn't have asked a bunch of VB developers!
