    Re: What if there was a NEW vb6

    The last statement is a hoot. There are new versions of .NET coming out steadily, and there's plenty of new work being done on it. Meanwhile, VB6 has no new versions coming out.

    The world hasn't...

    Cooking duck is difficult even if they aren't slug-fed. People call them "flying liver" for a reason, though the quality duck cookers I know vehemently disagree with that caricature.

    Re: What if there was a NEW vb6

    I don't agree with using node.js for the backend. That always seemed like the route for web developers that don't want to learn a different language. Haven't looked at it much, though, except that if...

    That's because everybody can do that voice, but Shaggy is much harder to mimic because it wasn't so distinctive.
  7. Re: Need help with operators for list of string

    No, not exactly. I'd also recommend using one of the others, as I find them to be more clear, and they will likely have somewhat better performance.

    An item in a List(of String) is a String. An...

    On the plus side, I had a pair of ducks in my garden this morning. Perhaps they'll nest here. I had a duck nesting in my yard two years ago, and got some entertaining video.

    I'd quote PC Monk, but I'd need both posts to make a wry comment...and I just don't feel like it.

    Re: What if there was a NEW vb6

    ASP.NET is not a competitor to JS. VBScript may have been seen as a competitor to JS (though a woefully inadequate one), but not ASP.NET. The two are complimentary technologies. JS for the front end,...

    VS 2010 Re: 64 bit exe on 32 bit

    You can change the target to AnyCPU or x86. I don't know that doing so would impact any of the code you have written, and then it would run. There may be an issue with the framework, though. I know...

    Using + to concatenate strings will work, but as Ident suggests, it's dangerous. The best operator to use for strings is & rather than +. The reason is that + also adds numbers. With Option Strict...

  27. VS 2012 Re: Searching an array of strings for a value

    Ultimately, the loop you have is nearly as efficient as you are going to get. The major inefficiency is the .ToLower calls, which aren't necessary (unless you use the - sign).
