  3. Re: [RESOLVED] Joomla How easy is it to use

    Joomla can be a pain in the arse for more bespoke and advanced websites. It depends upon what your aim is. If I were you and looking for a simple system, I would suggest a Wordpress site. Keep it...
  4. Re: [RESOLVED] VB 2010 - lost all handles to events - ever happened to you?

    Yup, that's it. Never trust the man that caused VB.NET to be written. It isn't just paranoia, it is obviously the truth, as with all conspiracy theories there is a core reality and I know that man...

  7. Re: [RESOLVED] VB 2010 - lost all handles to events - ever happened to you?

    It may not be that much real effort but the IDE is working against you in this case. The point of an IDE is that it makes living with the code easy, handling typical user errors as they happen and...

    Re: Reparations for slavery

    I'd agree with that.

    I'll stick with reality rather than justice because justice as we all know is fickle and you can never be sure it is fair. Justice is blind.

    Now, I've made my point with...

    Re: Reparations for slavery

    I have an axe to grind. My Saxon forebears were enslaved by the Normans in 1066 and they made us learn some of the bleedin' French! So we British should seek reparations from those Normans, ie. the...
