  1. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I don't get the impression it's a new variant (though I couldn't rule it out), rather I think we in the UK are suffering from complacency.

    Our initial vaccine roll out was excellent and put us...
  2. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Well, infection, hospitalisation and death rates rates are going up over here and the media and government are finally talking about it. Looks like we're likely to get mandatory masks back and...
  3. Re: Can a VB.NET coding contest be advertised in the Visual Basic .NET forum?

    Hmm, not sure how to keep submissions hidden. I'll post in the mods forum and see if I can find out.
  4. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Yeah, there seem to be an increasing number of flood incidents though I imagine a city the size of Athens getting hit is worse than most. I guess you could all huddle onto the Acropolis.

    Am I right that they were both Republicans or did I missunderstand that? I mean, that seems really bizarre when (nominally at least) they're both supposed to be representing the same position/
  6. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Our infection rates certainly rose due to Delta but our death rates did not. This is indicative that our vaccination program has worked to reduce the lethality at least. Evidence of it's effect of...
  7. Re: Can a VB.NET coding contest be advertised in the Visual Basic .NET forum?

    It certainly can and we'd be happy to sticky it.

  8. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    I agree but, as Shaggy said, I'm not sure if it'd be politically achievable at this point.

    If I look at the situation in the US I think you should still be wearing masks en-masse, getting your...

    Re: Debtor System Design

    If I was being REALLY purist I'd say you should cope with that by recording dated name changes in a table of it's own but, yeah, I'd be being overly purist at that point.

  13. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    There were a few - less than one in a million. And it was never conclusively proved that the vaccine was causative.

    I'm concurring with the answers here.

  15. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    That statement isn't being made though. At least, not in the UK where we have high vaccination rates. It may be being made elsewhere (I've certainly heard that from the US) but you really need to...

    The virus doesn't care what US citizens support.

    Yes they do. They're an almost perfect inverse correlation which is what you'd expect. Have I misunderstood something here?
