    Re: 'The Cult Of The Rusty Spoon'

    To be fair, I was making an ironic comment. The existence of the first thread makes not a whit of difference since the rest of the thread isn't related to anything, including itself.

    Re: Anything to save a buck

    I heard about this on some radio show. It sounded like a pretty brutal experience.

    Could have gone worse, though. I just got something mailed from St. Paul, MN to Idaho. It first went to Nashua,...

  4. Re: System.UnauthorizedAccessException (Access to the path denied) Error

    If you were to leave it running, will it then start working again, or is it the case that once it fails it always fails?

    Since the original post is a link that is broken, the rest of the thread makes no sense.



    Perhaps the latter doesn't follow from the former.

    I was wondering that, as well. In embedded systems, memory use can be crucial, but in modern computers, and increasingly in modern embedded systems, memory isn't a real concern. However, just because...

  12. VS 2019 Re: Converting application from MS Access to SQLite database

  20. [RESOLVED] Multiple Interface Variants

    That subject line sucks, but I couldn't think of a good one, as the question is a bit odd.

  21. Re: Get Pixel from window and click if that pixel (or in range of that pixels) exists

    That's a pretty ambitious goal. Colors are vague and images are large, so this type of thing is usually a pretty bad idea. What are you hoping to achieve with it?

    Are those colors that you are wanting to click on? 55, 80, 120 looks like an RGB color. If it's a color, what does relative mean? It's fairly unlikely that there's just ONE pixel of a certain color,...
