  1. Re: Upgrading to VS 2022 Version 17.3.0 is a horrendous disaster!

    I've had some issues in the past but the latest update has been smooth for me on two different machines. Consider how hard it can be to isolate some issues in your own software that occur in some...

    Re: US college enrollment is declining

    The word "really" is doing a lot of the heavy lifting there. Sportspeople, singers and musicians aren't going to help in that scenario either but they seem to get paid an awful lot of money, so...

    In Australia, as I expect it is elsewhere, student nurses do practical placements in their later year(s). If they did such placements early on then they would just be a hindrance to the real staff....

    Australia is basically the same. We have TAFE (Technical and Further Education) colleges that are largely focused on vocational training but are probably more diverse offerings these days. We also...

    So what you're saying is that college may be a scam, to some degree.

    College may be a scam, to some degree (no pun intended - really, I'm adding this after the fact because I only just realised) at least, but that you would listen to anything Andrew Tate has to say is...
  8. Re: Cast DataTable to get its Update method?

    Much, if not all, of that looks like a bad idea, including the part that you're trying to use. A DataTable is supposed to be for data storage. Building the retrieval and/or saving of data into that...

  29. Re: Windows Program - form constructor and load taking "a long time"

    Then I can only assume that you have an astronomical number of instructions, but it's only an assumption because I can't see them. I've seen very complex forms load in less time than that so, unless...
  30. Re: Windows Program - form constructor and load taking "a long time"

    Ah, the irony. It's obviously not normal for a form to take that long so we can only conclude that you're doing something unusual. How do we determine what that might be when the issue is so vaguely...
