  2. Re: If you like your Ebola, you can keep it

    I'm not sure I'd advocate quarantining everyone who's been to Africa. I imagine the cost of that would be huge unless you quarantine them in their own home in which case you've got no guarantee...
  3. Re: If you like your Ebola, you can keep it

    Yeah, I wasn't sure who would know the background and who wouldn't which is why I hedged with a "some". I suspect TG probably got it as well.

    Gotta love chitChat. Only a dangerous fool would...

  5. Re: If you like your Ebola, you can keep it

    I love that statement because it's so often missunderstood and it's actually more apt to the discussion than some might realise. Descarte never meant it to be a philosphical statement but rather a...
  6. Re: Pairing up developers for enhanced learning and better productivity

    If this was chit chat I'd make some lewd comment about the discomfort engendered by a long arse post.

    Personally I like Agile aproaches and find them a bit more "real world" than more traditional...

    Just FYI, I deleted your other thread as a duplicate. Looks like your getting decent answers in this one though.:)
  8. Re: Multiple keyboard, understand which i hit

    Agreed. We would need a very good explanation as to why you'd want to do this before we'd offer any help.

    I'd meant to come back on this earlier but haven't had any time.

    This is true of all project management aproaches though, they're all only as good as the people running them. None of them is a silver bullet and any given project will only succeed if...

    Re: Having some trouble with XML Files

    Re: Inherit Centralize

    I'm pretty sure you can't do that (at least, not without some major hack). Inheritance isn't something an object does, it's something an object is. So when you say "Inherits System.Windows.Form"...

  22. Re: Question/Help From Developers? USB / Serial com's talking to hardware
