    VS 2017 Re: Importing CSV Strings as numbers

    What I find interesting is that I never knew that ADO would interpret a string in any way, and even JMC seems to be just speculating. It's not the first time that I have encountered MS doing...
  2. Re: Adding Api for my desktop application

    An API can mean a few different things. Perhaps the most common is to set up some web service exposing various methods that can be called via the web. That would be a totally separate program from a...

    Re: Presidential Debates

    You've got a good point there. I would go further by saying that all the talk about how bad Biden is at debating is setting the bar quite low. That's very much in his favor. If everybody expects you...
  5. Re: Undestanding the use of Controls

    I'd start out with "never", and then break that rule as needs arise.

    The thing to understand is classes. Everything in .NET is a class. Your form is a class, a module is a class, controls are...

    Re: How to connect to Binance API?

    I felt this was better as it's own thread, since it is a fairly complete question, and the thread it was attached to was over a year old. While it had a topic very similar to the other thread, a new...

    No, my colleague was tested for COVID and strep, both tests came back negative, so we are good to go. Darn good thing, too, as I was running out of food in the house and would have had to do some...

    He pretty much admitted it a year back. This time around, he's made up some cover story about how the voters elected a Republican majority in the senate, and therefore he has to fulfill their wishes...

    I'm already left, and I have a desk full of tablets. Should I be only counting the working tablets, or should I include the dead ones?

    Re: Vb6: winsock keep alive problem

    Well, THAT shouldn't be seen as a DOS. Why bother keeping anything alive for that long? Why would you even want that on your side, let alone theirs? Just connect once an hour and don't bother with...

    Re: Timed function call

    The CPU manages waiting in a VERY efficient manner, so don't worry about the cost of waiting for some event to occur. You can assume that there isn't one.

    Technically, this should go to Chit-Chat, but in this case, it seems like Sam was talking to this audience, so I'll leave it unless it turns into some post race-like monster.

    How frequently? The server may well block frequent requests because it would see it as a DOS attack, but how frequently do you expect things to change, anyways?

    We may get rain today and tomorrow. While this may help some fires, and possibly start more (if we get lightning), it should clean the air, if nothing else.

    Mask wearing in Idaho is following this pattern: The Boise area is mostly masked. Rural areas are far more mixed. Compliance is greatest among the old.

    Do you really have a field in both stafftemp and staff called simply "sta"??? I certainly advocate not using real words for field names, and sta isn't a real word, but it also seems pretty opaque,...
  28. VS 2017 Re: How To Use TCP To Count The Number Of Files In Server Folder?

    Others will likely be able to answer better. I've never used that method. I'm wondering whether or not the 404 is being returned in error...of a sort. They may be returning a 404 rather than an...
