    Re: Gen X: The new punching bag?

    Yeah, people haven't fundamentally changed in a few decades. We haven't fundamentally changed in centuries or even millennia. You can bet that, had TikTok been a thing during the Boomers prime years,...
  2. Re: [RESOLVED] What on earth does this mean ?

    You may want to look into using Async/Await. That allows you to write your code in a very similar way to what you would in a fully single-threaded environment, i.e. no starting dedicated threads, but...

    Re: Gen X: The new punching bag?

    You may as well be a boomer, you're so crotchety. Yes, TikTok gives narcissists an outlet that people with the same personality type in decades gone didn't have, but the fact that those people are so...

    It basically means that your UI thread is doing something that will monopolise it for a long time and thus your UI will freeze.

  16. VS 2022 Re: Getting the difference between two lists Expandoobjects with the same properties.

    Maybe you don't have to. If you use a HashSet(Of T) instead of a List(Of T) then you can simply add whatever objects you like and it will reject any duplicates automatically. By default, reference...
