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

    Technically, you have a larger burden of proof. If you post various web sites, you are talking to a group that is fairly well informed. At least enough to realize that the press has higher standards...

    Yeah, this sounds like an unusually strong category 2.

    At least you still have a bit of power. Hopefully it moves past fast.
  3. Re: Should I learn C language for development of my website?

    C# and JavaScript would be the best languages, in my opinion. Python has a certain amount of support, but the thing about the other two is that they are in the C family of syntax, which means that...

    Re: Get nth item in a combobox

    OK, so what's going wrong? There are several issues in the code, but none are clearly wrong. I would note these points:

    1) You're using something like ADO rather than ADO.NET.

    2) You appear to...

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

    Technically, it doesn't have to confer lasting immunity, it just has to drop spread to the point where it can snuff out. The virus needs to keep replicating for it to stick around. If you get even...
