    I, on the other hand, am rather confined, but that's voluntary cause working from home is nice.

    Re: Post Race!

    Well, as you have to do a long hike, you cannot also take the risk to be contaminated and become sick during your hiking.

    I don't like to work at home, too many disturbing things around me and I prefer real life exchange with people than videoconferencing or audioconferencing

    By the way, it seems I didn't understand well this sentence as I was thinking Idaho was taking confinement measure

    Re: Post Race!

    We haven't really closed down much. The governor was pretty responsible early on, but he's dragging his feet with our recent uptick in cases. Compared to some other states, such as FL, TX, and AZ, Idaho has nothing. We're gaining rapidly, though, so shutting back down seems likely. What we had was four stages of reopening. Technically, there is a fifth, which is "fully open", but I don't believe that was ever classified as a stage. We got to stage four, with only about 25 cases/week. Since then, we've hit our highest rates of the epidemic, but we're still officially in stage four...except that some things have been ordered closed, which means that we have a bunch of the stage 3 restrictions, and possibly some of the stage 2 restrictions, but we're still officially in stage 4.

    What we're seeing is the politics at work. Having opened back up, the political pain of reversing course is more than even a responsible governor has been willing to do, yet. If things don't improve, though, the reverse is inevitable.

    I'm working on a legacy conversion from VB6 desktop application to angular/c# web application.

    I find it tough to understand how people saw value in control arrays.

    Re: Post Race!

    So in this particular case, imagine a CRUD screen with multiple grids representing multiple entities. What they did was setup a controlarray for each CRUD button based on its entity, then from there (based on the index) perform the operation from a separate file. It makes it easily to confuse which control array you're on.

    Re: Post Race!

    It wasn't always a good idea. The basic reason for a control array was so that a single handler could handle events from multiple controls. It was then abused for other reasons.

    Re: Post Race!

    Just got my utility bill today.
    Noticed the Electricity was significantly higher than this period last year.

    I guess all the working from home adds up, with the extra lighting through the day, plus a monitor, or some times two, and also up to three computers running.
    I assume with 65% of our company working from home, the electrical cost for the company must be down as well, although they have other added costs, with additional cleaning requirements, handing out masks, and other compensations for that 35% that have to work at the the facilities.

    Re: Post Race!

    Yeah, I noticed that my electrical consumption was about 20% greater than the same month last year. That's probably all about computer use, but it could also be a whole lot more cooking at home.

    We just got a new meter installed and for a couple of days our lights would flicker (in mid-day with no bad weather) and would sometimes go completely out for a few seconds at a time.

    Re: Post Race!

    Either one will work.

    When I lived in the Florida Keys, the power down there was terribly unreliable. Flickers, brownouts, and spikes happened at least daily. It may have had to do with the fact that you could walk the streets before dawn and watch electricity arc from the high voltage lines to the local vegetation. High humidity, and lax trimming were the cause of that, mostly.

    In any event, those power spikes could fry a motherboard quite suddenly. We had EVERY computer on UPS systems with line conditioners, because you'd otherwise lose all your work, and possibly the whole computer, at least once a week.

    Heck, down there, you probably don't have any kind of sweater, whether polka or jitterbug.

    I haven't had a UPS on my system since I moved here. Eventually, the batteries wear out. Most UPS batteries are replaceable, so that's good. However, it takes years for the battery to wear out, by which time all the models have changed and the battery you need is no longer being manufactured. With the few UPS I have worked with, the number of times that the battery could actually be replaced has been 0, despite them all being technically replaceable.

    Re: Post Race!

    All of my computers and network gear are on UPS units. I have had to replace the battery in one APC unit, and it was available. When I first set up a home computer, I tested the power at my home with a test recorder that printed out each sag, surge, dropout, etc. on a strip of thermal paper tape, like from a cash register. Normally if you left this unit plugged in and running for 24 hours, you might get a few of these instances and a strip of paper a foot long. When I fired it up at my home, the paper tape immediately started spooling out and never stopped until I finally shut it off after I had about 50 feet if recorded power glitches. The power I get has improved somewhat since then, but I still get several outages per month, so UPS systems are the only way to go for me.

    Yeah, if your power is noisy or unreliable, get a UPS. Just ask yourself, "what can brown do for you?"

    After a few years of pretty mild allergies, this year has not been so pleasant...or maybe it hasn't been bad, but my eyes are itching, which is annoying.

    Hey, everyone. It's PeterPorter.

    Just to let you know, my old email and VBForum's account has been hacked. I've started a thread explaining what happened and how I can prove I'm Peter, but I see it didn't go thru. Is my thread being moderated, or was it a temporary VBForum's glitch that prevent my thread from going thru?

    Maybe it's something I missed when I rushed creating this new account and posting my problem.
