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

    No, we probably just said that was the flue you were loose in (flue and flu are VERY different things).

    What will you do with it? I have a couple degrees. I think my BS is around here somewhere (most of you assume my BS is around whenever I am, but that's not always true). As for my MS...I'm really not...

    Re: vb10 and vb 19

    You might run into an issue if you were targeting one of the older versions of the framework, but if you just went with the default (4.0), you should have no problems.

    Which part?

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

    Three was found to be ineffective, but two was more effective than one. The problem with three is that air can't get through three, so it has to go around the mask, thereby rendering it useless.

    Actually, nobody on the right listens to him, and citing Rand Paul doing something crazy is kind of like citing a fish swimming.

  8. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    It won't happen out here, so my opinion doesn't matter. Personally, I don't favor another lockdown. While our vaccination rate in this state is nothing special, it's up around 40%. A lockdown hurts...
