Yep, many of those look familiar.
The MS-DOS Programmer's Reference makes me think one thing: Int 21h
And I don't even know what it means. I remember looking at those books and being like, hmm...I wonder what a Int 21h is.
The Winn Rosch Hardware Bible is interesting. I guess Winn Rosch was actually a robot since he had his own hardware bible.
I owned a copy of that Inside Visual C++ (by Kruglinski if memory serves right) and I never got much out of it. Lots of books I'd get 2 or 3 chapters in and then get stuck.
I've quit long before that. I (and my colon) have nothing to prove.
And that's why it all gets turned into sauce. You learn it's properties of heat (starting will less, not excess) and work your way into cooking it in with just the right heat.
The super-hots (habanaero and beyond) of the Capsicum Chinense family have a better hot taste (at least to Mrs. Wife and myself) - all else being equal. The heat comes in a bit later and they are fruity. I just use (physcially) a lot less - also, less vinigar (my preservative) when you use so little and thus food isn't affected by the sour and smell.
But - paralleling the part of your post I quoted, any idiot can make food too hot - putting in the right amount to make it taste better is the key - and that does imply that the food has a taste.
I've never (knowingly) eaten one before. I've seen them in supermarkets and more so, in fruit markets - and was tempted by their interesting look - but never got around to indulging. Assuming the insects don't get there first, I'll have my chance.
Online descriptions seem to put it like it's family - a form of cabbage - apparently sweeter than others. The seeds were the surprise "free" inclusion so not much can go wrong
I decided that, instead of manually categorising a bunch of values in a spreadsheet I'd write a simple VBA method that would do the hard work for me. After all, doing it manually would take about an hour. Writing a bit of VBA couldn't take more than... well, I think I'm on hour 5 at this point.
It's been a long time since I've done VBScript, but even VBScript was generally fairly sensible.
No constructor, serious hassles passing user defined types between methods, a limit to the number of times you can use line continuation in a row, the awful experience overall.
I can't believe how much of the world lives and breathes this stuff.
(but of course I'm going to bash my way through it instead of just getting the job done the old fashioned way)
I semi-retired a few years ago but took up a job "in the business" looking after their EUC "solutions" - most of which consisted of recorded macros. Three years later and trying to introduce any form of governance is still like herding cats
Just today I was yearning for the days when I would just knock up a quick program to automate something - I sometimes even find myself wishing for VB6!
Good Tips '489 !
Writing add-ins seems to be the only way to automate Office 365. It is becoming the corporate office platform in a lot of places so indeed MS has done a Ripley on us corporate software developers.
If you do have to work in VBA -there are many toolsets to help write and maintain good code - MZ tools is my preference but Rubberduck · GitHub[^] looks good too.
Its an old but stable IDE -little Intellisense, no autocompletion - but that only helps the coding - not the thinking!
Export all your code modules, forms, spreadsheet content, formulae, formats to text files. Then you can do version control in mercurial, and inspection in Npp
Merging is an issue but you can see what changed and revert or branch.
