    Happy New Yeeeear!

    I am coding in VB6 and I' on my 3rd glass of late bottled Vintage Port.

    Happy New Yeeeear to you!

    By the power invested in me, all the threads I start are Niya and Olaf free zones - no arguing about the benefits of VB6 over .NET here please. Happiness must reign.

    Seems odd to me. You posted that at around 5:30 Canadian Atlantic time I think, which would be 6.5 hours to go if you were in that region. Newfoundland would be 6 hours at that point. Doesn't seem like any part of Canada should have been 5.5 hours at the time you posted. Are you doing some Atlantic Deep Sea fishing?

    I assume you probably have 1.25 hours to go at the time of this post. I have 2.25...

    Damn, too late to enter the discussion. I blame that on the empty bottle of port.

    3,845 of them turned 21 today.... The tricky part is that they all joined 20 years ago.

    Darn system defaults.

    Now there's a programmer's mind for you, good catch I blame uncleber's empty bottle of port, my posting while preparing dinner, and a stopped clock on the mantle. Apparently it has been stopped for a while!

    Oh yeah, the birthdate defaults. Their profiles show a join date of 2002, one year after they were born!

    Lets just pretend alot VB6ers signed-up their 1 year olds to carrying on with their language, after gettin' a glimpse of the .NET threat in 2001!

    It's obvious, 2001 was the official beginning of Baby Boomers 2.0. and they have been genetically engineered to become the next gen coders.

    Happy New Year VBForums!

    Just got myself an Oculus Quest 2 and I'm already making apps for it using Unity and C#. Got a nice shufflepuck game going in VR. I'll share with you guys soon.

    That is not a pleasant thought.

    I'm finding it hard to expunge that vision from my mind.
