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

    You may have a point there. I've been enjoying it, mostly, but it probably isn't good for us to be staying away from each other quite so much. I'm somebody who would go walking for six months, but...
  2. Re: There is no oleformat.object.caption in vb.net when option strict on,so?

    That worked? Cool.

    There's some poor documentation and powerfully weird design choices in some of those Office programs.

    Re: Democracy

    Looks pretty rational. Digital security is a worthy goal in theory, though one has to see what it means in practice to be certain. After all, there is a way to provide absolute digital security: Shut...
  4. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I would say that it has had some negative effects on my life, but it's been clearly positive for me financially. The lack of driving, less eating out (I could, I just decided to change my habits at...
  5. VS 2013 Re: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Yeah, I'm basing my guess off what some OTHER person wrote in a recent thread, and not off this thread.

    VS 2015 Re: Break when system hangs

    But when you do the break, you aren't taken to Visual Studio and any particular line?

    Does your program use any multithreading that could be happening around the time of the hang?

    The most...
  7. VS 2013 Re: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Did you put the breakpoint on there? Did you examine that line to see which object is Nothing? Also, where is that line located?

    One of the possibilities, which isn't clear without knowing where...
  8. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Yeah, but that's Greece and the EU. The US did something pretty different: We shoveled money to people buy the bale load. I was trying to figure out how much direct money I got, even though I never...
  9. Re: Libertarian Case Against Regulations of Social Media Companies

    Legislation and the civil courts are not two different things. Legislation creates the laws that are the basis of suits in civil courts. Without the preceding legislation, a civil suit has no legal...
  10. Re: There is no oleformat.object.caption in vb.net when option strict on,so?

    That was what I wanted to see. Here's what I would suggest you try, from my limited, recent, experience with VSTO:

    1) Turn Option Infer ON (it may already be on).

    Then on this line:

  11. VS 2013 Re: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    There's another place that it could be happening, depending on where this line is found.

    When this type of exception happens, put a breakpoint on the line that is causing the exception (or just...
  12. Re: Libertarian Case Against Regulations of Social Media Companies

    True, but that's why it's such a sticky subject. For one thing, you can deny somebody service because you don't like them, but not if you don't like them because of the color of their skin.

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

    In the US, I'm not even sure how much it matters. We haven't had anything that could be called a lockdown in something like a year and a half, and for most of the intervening time there was no...
  14. Re: Libertarian Case Against Regulations of Social Media Companies

    It might well be best to try to hammer this out through the courts, but then again, perhaps not. There is little law on the subject that I am aware of. Just a few pieces along the lines of the...
  15. Re: [RESOLVED] SQL Connection forget to working

    Why is this thread marked as resolved? Did you solve this, if so how?

    If it hasn't been resolved, I suggest you try exactly what you suggested: Put the connection string into a string variable,...
  16. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Yeah, that's certainly fair.

    I think there are philosophical people on each side. Philosophical conservatives (the George Will types) didn't support Trump, but the Republican party did. For most...

    Re: Democracy

    Yeah, what he said.

    I think there was a hope early on that it would make you immune. There was certainly a hope that, if enough people got vaccinated, the virus would fade away because it...
  20. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Yeah, I've never thought of Dilettante as being on the right. In the US, politics is kind of a horseshoe which doesn't quite make a full circle. Unfortunately, as you get out towards the ends of the...
  21. Re: There is no oleformat.object.caption in vb.net when option strict on,so?

    If it isn't there, then I would expect that turning Option Strict Off would mean that it would just fail at runtime rather than at compile time. All that Option Strict Off is doing is letting the...

    Sounds like a RIGHT OUTER Join, which would be a very strange animal indeed.

    Re: Windows 11 is available to some now

    I'm not interested in being an early adopter of MS technology. It seems to be better to let it age a bit.

    However, I have always assumed that I wouldn't be adopting Win11. I expect that it will be...
