    Re: Post Race!

    Google Idaho Inside Desert. I came up with several links. This one was right, and I didn't look at any of the others:

    It's only absurd because you went online, found a couple pictures of rivers found in deserts, and lacking any experience, extrapolated them to every other stream in every desert. I'm not sure which...

    Re: What if there was a NEW vb6

    Well, it's mighty hard to buy VB6, at the moment, so if it worked, there'd probably be some market.

    VS 2005 Re: Question about threading.

    I agree with both DS and EG, having read the other thread. Threading can be cool, but it isn't a panacea. It is entirely possible, even likely, to write a multi-threaded app that has worse...

    VS 2005 Re: isAlive question

    So what's not working with that code? Errors, or just bad behavior? I wouldn't write it that way, but then again, I don't think I'd write it at all based on that. The problem is that you currently...

    VS 2005 Re: Question about threading.

    CheckForIllegalCrossThreads isn't set to True just to make your life more difficult, it is there for a reason. Threading allows you to introduce two whole new classes of bugs that aren't (normally)...
  10. Re: Nvarchar casting as integer error... when no integer column used

    That's actually a better result than it hitting the breakpoints. That means that DS (or TG) is right: You aren't getting any lines back, which, when added to your initial problem, almost certainly...
  11. Re: Nvarchar casting as integer error... when no integer column used

    Well, the data being returned certainly doesn't have the data, so the question is: Why not? The most likely answer is that, while you aren't getting errors, your JOIN is resulting in Null data in...

    Re: Post Race!

    By noon, half the daily temperature sounds about right. So, if we see roughly 20-30 degree (F) daily swings, then seeing 10-15 degrees by noon is about normal, with the rest coming afterwards. You...
