    I watched a video about a professional removal of a very large nest. The guy used a shop-vac with a mixture of dish soap and water in it. The soap breaks down the surface tension, which quickly...

    Re: Migrate VB6 to .NET

    I prefer your second option to COM interop.

    This is being driven by some corporate politics, one way or another, from the sound of it. As long as you stick with the COM interop, you'll be...

    I would say it is fairly different, for these reasons:

    1) At the time, HIV was a death sentence. COVID has never been. There's a chance of dying from COVID, but it was never high, whereas with HIV...

    I agree with Niya, and I think you can see this by making a loop that does some random, but short and repetitive, garbage, and timing it over and over. For example, you could do something like this:...
