So... I've been known for years for the amount of coffee I drink, all day, every day. At home, I have well water which I like, but at work - it is city water and that I don't like. So, I filter it through ground coffee.
On my desk at work, I have a collection of cups: the one I had when I started there, a gift from my wife with my daughters picture on it, a cup from a friend when the visited their son in the Marines, and my current cup: one that looks like a prescription bottle. Most of them are in the 8 to 12 ounce range.
Well, today I got a new cup.. nothing fancy. Simple white design. But, its 60 ounces !
On Monday morning, during our regularly scheduled meeting, I plan to enter the room with the new cup and listen to jaws hit the floor.
OK, so Madam decided she wanted to watch it, so I had to sit through it, and I was yawning all the way until about 30 minutes through the first episode, which was well enough written, but dull, dull, dull...
Then it made me laugh.
... And it continued to make me laugh!
IMO, It's worth sitting through the establishing scenes.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
Well, tomorrow (Sunday) will be my 73rd birthday. Good Lord! How quickly did that creep up on me! I think back on the number of celebrities that passed at an earlier age. Should that scare me? Why am I not afraid? Somehow my body aged faster than my ability to think.
Despite arthritis and all sorts of aches and pains, I still remain active coding as a hobby. Currently I am making good progress mastering the Prism MVVM Framework (Version 6.3.0). I am even planning writing a beginner's article on getting started with Prism. The existing articles on this topic do not impress me at all.
Should I rather be planning for the arrival of the Grim Reaper? No! Screw him! I have no intention of falling victim to that SOB yet! I have so much more to achieve, before I will be ready for the final curtain.
So you are more or less Version 7.3 you old sack
All I read about/from you sounds more like Version 3.1. Keep going on like this, your physical Age is maybe 73, your personal Age is at least -20 from it.
All the best for you, looking Forward for your update to 10.1
My 72nd is in a couple of months, so I have a little understanding of how you feel. I am not learning that much new stuff these days, more just keeping (or trying to) my hand in. As to the future, it's still there waiting for you.
This physical body typing at you now reached the same age seven moons ago, and, while a bit worse for wear, continues to function. Perhaps we share a trait of finding delight, and energy, in always learning new things ?
Listen now to a further point: no mortal thing Has a beginning, nor does it end in death and obliteration. There is only a mixing, and then a separating of what was mixed.
But, by mortal men, these processes are named: 'beginnings'
«When I consider my brief span of life, swallowed up in an eternity before and after, the little space I fill, and even can see, engulfed in the infinite immensity of spaces of which I am ignorant, and which know me not, I am frightened, and am astonished at being here rather than there; for there is no reason why here rather than there, now rather than then.» Blaise Pascal
Happy Birthday (delayed, but better late than never )
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Don't ya just hate it when you've spent a day and a half googling for obscure error messages, trying this, adjusting that,...lather, rinse, repeat. Before you know it, you've got all this commented out stuff that didn't work and basically back to where you started.
Then, in a moment of clarity, you finally realize that the dataset name for the ssrs subreport is 'EmployeeDatails' and not 'EmployeeDetails'! I'll have to personally thank my colleague next week for this valuable lesson! This is clearly a time when I should have copy/pasted!
To be honest, it's my first crack at a subreport in asp.net, so there were a few new things to figure out...I just failed to focus on the simplest of things and went into trial and error mode too quickly! Happy weekend loungers!
