    Re: The US fragile democracy Exposed

    The problem I have with that minimum wage is that it is one size fits all. You likely can't live in New York City on $15/hour, yet that is also the median wage in the state of Mississippi (my mother...
  2. VS 2010 Re: Incremental generation is slow even for small values

    I was going to say the same thing.

    String concatenation is far slower than you might expect. Strings can't change size, so every time you use += (&= would be better, but the same speed), you are...
  3. VS 2012 Re: [RESOLVED] Want to hijack a SqlDataReader class so it can be sourced from multipl

    I haven't tried that, but I did try the IDataReader, and I believe it automatically includes IDisposable. If your class doesn't implement IDisposable, it probably should, if only to call the base...

    Re: Post Race!

    See, that's one of the things about the south: Your crawfish only live for one year (or two, they can manage that). Up here, a one year old is less than an inch long, and I'm not entirely sure that...

    You'd need MORE than 100 years, you'd just say it was 100.
  6. VS 2012 Re: Want to hijack a SqlDataReader class so it can be sourced from multiple places

    But you'd only need to implement those pieces you are using, which sounds like a distinct minority of the methods.
  7. VS 2012 Re: Want to hijack a SqlDataReader class so it can be sourced from multiple places

    I've always thought HasRows was utterly useless, though I admit to having used it once or twice. Whenever I used it, I always asked myself, "self, why are you using this?" to which I answered, "I...
  8. Re: Stored Procedure Stepping on Itself

    I also just did a little playing around with the SP and confirmed that it really does run just fine in SSMS.

    Better yet, I just confirmed that the SP is actually running correctly. I went into the...
  9. Re: Stored Procedure Stepping on Itself

    In the OP I mentioned that there were three blocks that started with BEGIN TRANSACTION, then there was a BEGIN TRY, some stuff, and a COMMIT. If there was an exception, then in the Catch block, the...

    That's the way it ALWAYS works, for me. I accept the blame, too. It just keeps things going smoothly.
  11. Re: Stored Procedure Stepping on Itself

    Well, not in THAT implementation, but this is getting stranger and stranger, as I have increasingly solid proof that the SP is actually running to completion in spite of reporting an error....
  12. VS 2012 Re: What to hijack a SqlDataReader class so it can be sourced from multiple places

    Would you be willing to change it just a LITTLE bit? If you used the IDataReader interface rather than a DataReader directly, then you could make any class you want that implements the IDataReader...
  13. Re: Aborting a thread running an infinite loop

    Something just dawned on me: Is this a web application or WPF?
  14. Re: Stored Procedure Stepping on Itself

    I wandered off for a bit, as is my wont, but now I'm back....with more data, and more confusion.

    When I run the SP from within SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), it runs successfully without...

  16. Re: Aborting a thread running an infinite loop

    They run on the same UI thread unless you tell them otherwise, and that's usually the way you want it.

  22. Re: How to convert VBA to VB.NET? Catia macro?

    I'm more curious as to why you have to transition to .NET, especially given what Delaney said. It might be possible to move to .NET, but it sounds like CATIA is intended to work with Excel, and Excel...
