    That link suggested that the cleanup was less for deep fried turkeys. That surprises me. On the other hand, they didn't suggest recycling the oil, which would make cleanup slightly better. If you...

    Re: Post Race!

    It is NOT solely southern. It's just that the only decent cooking systems are made in the south.

    Deep fried turkey sounds kind of nasty, as it sounds like it's really fatty, but that's not the...

    Yeah, it might have gotten the problem solved, but it's otherwise horrible. What you just wrote is a busy loop, the nastiest thing you can do in code as it will have a noticeable impact on the...
  5. VS 2008 Re: new to visual basic problem with if condition

    It's effectively the same thing, except that a Select Case will work better than an If statement for that many. It would look something like this:

    Could be. I don't feel like I ate all that much, but I was unpleasantly stuffed by the end of it. There is something about turkey that it fills me up super fast. That's not a bad thing, though.

    Re: [RESOLVED] Deserialize Into 2d Array

    2D arrays have always sucked for this reason. One alternative is to not store it in a 2D array, but just use a 1D array. After all, there really isn't any such thing as a 2D array in memory, so what...
  8. VS 2010 Re: Wait Until Image In PictureBox

    This is not normally an issue, as pictureboxes don't normally load in any asynchronous fashion, so where is this picture coming from and how is it being loaded in such a way that it is so slow?

    I doubt that any one control will do the job, but there are a couple options.
