    Re: Quietly quitting

    I get paid hourly. I couldn't believe it, but now I understand it. Bean counters wanted to be able to count the beans accurately, and paying by the hour was counting accurately. That also means that...

    I'm confused about what is actually happening. You said that Me.Close is executed on Cancel, but that everything after it is also executed. However, you showed the Save button, not the Cancel button....

    I'm almost in the same boat, except that I write programs and enjoy doing so, which means that I goof off by working...which is weird. I've been putting off a minor improvement to a program that I...

    Re: Dead Monitor

    Good to know. I'll be taking a tape measure to the store with me. I think the price difference between online and in person isn't worth the wait, to me. I want the 27" monitor that I am currently...

    Re: Dead Monitor

    I considered that, actually, but decided against it. The desk is pretty good, despite being cheaply made. The drawback is that I can only have two monitors on it. The positive is that I can store a...

    Not sure what the Lenovo comment is about. Is it because they're now a Chinese company? I didn't even know they made monitors, and haven't seen any in my brief look around, but I'll take your word...

    Re: Dead Monitor

    That's a very good comment. That monitor tends to be on an average of...oh, perhaps 28.5 hours per day. Well, not really, of course, but yeah, I use it a LOT. My electricity is pretty cheap, but I'd...

    Not my server, actually. What is happening is that a third party is getting data from sundry folks, then we go to an API they provide to get data from them. We made an assumption, based on the nature...

    Re: Dead Monitor

    There's always the question of whether or not it is worth fixing. With prices so cheap these days, and realizing that it was only a 24" monitor in a massive container, the cost of fixing it is hard...

    Re: Dead Monitor

    All these years, I've thought it was a 27" monitor, but after reading up on the model number, it didn't seem possible. I measured it this morning, and it really is a 24" monitor. It's a bit of a...

  14. Re: vs 2017 how can i compare between 2 arrays and delete if there is no match?

    You shouldn't be using arraylists. Those were deprecated back in 2005, and just confuse this issue. They can hold anything, which makes this problem more complicated because you don't know if you are...

    Re: Dead Monitor

    The monitor is a Dell 2405 FPW from back in 2005. Not as old as I thought....but still old.

    I tried it out on a different computer, and the screen was black. The monitor appeared to come on, based...

    The issue I have run into with this is that any network interruption experienced while the DB connection was open, can corrupt the database in weird and wonderful ways.

    Dead Monitor
