  1. Re: Why is VB.Net/C#/XAML + VS2019 is better than VB6? Here's why.....

    I'm back to doing desktop after several years of doing DB only so there is some life still in it. Not going to lie, though, the app I'm working on is very niche and I wouldn't be looking at desktop...

    You say patoote, I say potato.

    Although most of the articles around the lab in Wu Han don't state it explicitly, they all try to imply that the Chinese were trying to weaponize the virus. They...

    British weather is a bit crap but at least it's not trying to kill us.
  8. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I'm guessing Greece's climate is as strongly informed by it's mountains as by the seas. Mountains tend to suck moisture upwards and then dump it as rainfall. Florida doesn't have that effect, I...
  9. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Have you guys been wearing masks outside or only inside? Wearing them outside has never really been a thing over here.

    Re: What song are you listening to right now?

    I wasn't suggesting you actually try it. Although it's still probably better than listening to the cure.

    Anyway, I'm spending this evening falling down a You Tube Nostalgia Rabbit Hole which has...

    Wing's Diner. They kept me going through more than a few lock down evenings.

    I was definitely a rocker rather than a goth so, for me, the Cult were great from Electric onwards. Mind you, even...
  12. Re: My AV protection doesn't like reading USB business card

    I end up having to inspect "dangerous" files fairly frequently as part of being a mod. Ideally I do it on an old laptop I've got but if that's not available I've got a Virtual Machine set up on my...

    Ugh! The cure is music to jump off a bridge to.

    Also, there's a place in Bristol that sells Thai Burgers. They're really nice.

    Re: Post Race!

    Interesting. I wasn't aware of this and haven't had much time to read up on it now but from a quick google it sounds like a pretty messy situation.

    Sadly, us Europeans don't have a great history...

    Yeah, their history with Algeria is pretty shameful. If you want to look at their colonial history it's all pretty bad but I'm British so this is definitely the pot calling the kettle black.:eek:

    Le Penn would be one of the right wing nutters Delany referred to. She's really not worth listening too.

    France does seem to have a problem with right wing nutters and far right parties are...
  19. Poll: Re: How many people do you know personally who are invested in crypto currencies?

    Ewe had to make joke out of this.
  20. Poll: Re: How many people do you know personally who are invested in crypto currencies?

    Well, I can arrange pick up but would need a discount, so a kid rather than a goat. I'm thinking my next door neighbour's kid. His name's Ben.
  21. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Turn that argument around and you have an equally (in)valid argument that would conclude that Uyghur's are being ethnically cleansed. It would have exactly the same amount (or lack of) evidence that...
  22. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    That China would become irrelevant, for one. He talks about declining population and touches on the reasons for it but the conclusion he's drawing is that China is losing global influence. He...
  23. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I agree with his data but not his conclusions. China will simply fill the gap through immigration, just as everyone else does. With China it's accelerated due to the one-child policy but I don't...
  24. Poll: Re: How many people do you know personally who are invested in crypto currencies?

    There's nothing intrinsic in the definition of currencies that requires them to be taxed.

    Indeed, we typically don't, we tax changes in wealth rather than wealth. I.e. when you are paid your...
  25. Poll: Re: How many people do you know personally who are invested in crypto currencies?

    Sooooo.... just like money then. Money hasn't been backed by an asset since we came off the gold standard. Both are valued purely on consensual belief.

    Crypto currency speculation is certainly...
  26. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Did I cause a thread blow up? Sorry, not my intention.

    But I don't think you can simply dismiss any evidence contrary to your opinion on the basis that anyone who believes it has a low IQ. And...
  27. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

  28. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    The overwhelming majority of nations outside of China acknowledge and condemn what's being done to the Uyghur, not just the US. The Chinese government says it's not happening. So your position...

  32. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Because they're reading the press release issued by the organisation. I don't see anything sinister there.
  33. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Damnit! I fell at the first hurdle.

    I agree. The call was to "flatten the curve" not "starve the virus into extinction". Expecting social measures to wipe out the virus completely was...

  38. Re: Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    To be fair, there is a small but significant number of scientists questioning some of the conclusions we've drawn around this virus. That's to be expected, though. This is a new virus that we're...
