  1. Re: Libertarian Case Against Regulations of Social Media Companies

    True, but that's why it's such a sticky subject. For one thing, you can deny somebody service because you don't like them, but not if you don't like them because of the color of their skin.

    It...
  2. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    In the US, I'm not even sure how much it matters. We haven't had anything that could be called a lockdown in something like a year and a half, and for most of the intervening time there was no...
  3. Re: Libertarian Case Against Regulations of Social Media Companies

    It might well be best to try to hammer this out through the courts, but then again, perhaps not. There is little law on the subject that I am aware of. Just a few pieces along the lines of the...
  4. Re: [RESOLVED] SQL Connection forget to working

    Why is this thread marked as resolved? Did you solve this, if so how?

    If it hasn't been resolved, I suggest you try exactly what you suggested: Put the connection string into a string variable,...
  5. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Yeah, that's certainly fair.

    I think there are philosophical people on each side. Philosophical conservatives (the George Will types) didn't support Trump, but the Republican party did. For most...

    I'm not sure about them not shedding the same amount. I think that falls neatly into the area that we don't know enough.

    I've gotten the impression that when this virus kills, it's mostly the...

    It's not a dummy bug. It's worse, it's a half-assed virus engine. The link has been removed, the thread has been closed.

    Re: Democracy

    Yeah, what he said.

    I think there was a hope early on that it would make you immune. There was certainly a hope that, if enough people got vaccinated, the virus would fade away because it...
  9. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Yeah, I've never thought of Dilettante as being on the right. In the US, politics is kind of a horseshoe which doesn't quite make a full circle. Unfortunately, as you get out towards the ends of the...
  10. Re: There is no oleformat.object.caption in vb.net when option strict on,so?

    If it isn't there, then I would expect that turning Option Strict Off would mean that it would just fail at runtime rather than at compile time. All that Option Strict Off is doing is letting the...

    Re: Windows 11 is available to some now

    Yeah, what 2kaud said: I assumed that Win11 would come out as an update, whether optional or mandatory. Nobody has yet said one way or another, but if it is still in beta, it may be that nobody on...

    VS 2015 Re: Bug Taste

    Ok, and what is the purpose? Bugs don't really DO anything, except cause errors. You ask whether this would cause you trouble, and if you really meant a bug, then yes, it will cause you trouble so...

    You could make the same case for your own libraries. If I were to write such a library, then I agree that the implementation of the library would be my "implemented solution", so why is RC6 NOT your...

    Re: query help (JOIN?)

    Sounds like a RIGHT OUTER Join, which would be a very strange animal indeed.

    Take a look at the example here:

    Re: Windows 11 is available to some now

    I'm not interested in being an early adopter of MS technology. It seems to be better to let it age a bit.

    However, I have always assumed that I wouldn't be adopting Win11. I expect that it will be...

  22. Re: Microsoft makes its VS Code tool available directly in the browser

    Yeah, somebody sent me a link to this. It's an interesting idea. Not currently where I'm going, but kind of a sign. Unfortunately, too many people read too much into signs emanating from MS. I think...

    Technically, you might be able to get away with that. The designer goes haywire, but I think I once created a private form inside a public form. Either that or it was a private form inside a non-form...

    Re: Clone and Rename - Install File

    To tell you the truth, I don't think I've ever built what could really be considered an install file in .NET, though I do intend to get into that in the next few months.

    I've used exactly two...

    VS 2015 Re: Break when system hangs

    Usually, if you can get to VS, and you are in a debug build, you can hit the break button. VS has to have focus, though, which can be a problem for some setups and some programs.
