    Re: Can't Find SQL Server-REVIVED

    Here we are in early April. All has been well since Jan 6th. Can't say that I've used this system every day, but perhaps a few times a week, each week, since between then and now. I forget when I...

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

    Usually, reducing packaging is an excuse to reduce product while keeping the price the same. You'd have to be looking at the cost/weight, and remembering that from one trip to the next. I purchase...

    Re: Cell Phone Recommendations

    That's an interesting point. I hadn't considered durability. In general, I'm usually pretty good with equipment when hiking, but weight could be an issue with hiking.

  4. VS 2019 Re: Using arrays to add information to radio buttons/checkboxes on a form

    Is this homework? I ask because the requirements are kind of nuts. If it's homework, you HAVE to do it the way you are asked to do it, but if it isn't homework, then there are far better approaches...

    The debt is backed by our collective belief that the debt is backed. When we lose that belief, you end up with hyper-inflation, because nobody believes the note is worth much.

    Doesn't seem odd to me. Boise is our one big city, and it has about the highest rate of vaccination in the state. The less populated parts of the state have lower vaccination rates, out here. Whether...

    People might be surprised, but I still have a particularly ancient flip phone, partially held together by JB Weld.
