After an almost 4 month hiatus, I'm finally back to article writing. The last 4 months have been something of a nightmare turned reality, starting the week before Easter. Part of the hiatus involved my mother being diagnosed with heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. She's doing much better now, but it didn't look good for a while. First time diagnosis (at 89) for her, she hates going to the doctor, even though she used to be an OR nurse! Perhaps because she has been a nurse!
The other part of the hiatus involves me personally, and I'm happy to share, but you'll have to email me directly as the content is not really lounge appropriate (that'll raise some eyebrows!)
I consider everyone here to be part of my larger "digital community", and through the last 4 months I have also been graced with amazing community support where I live. I can't emphasize enough how important it is to be surrounded by loving friends during times of crisis. To paraphrase a cliche, keep your friends close and the crazies far, far away, in another galaxy.
While the emotional healing continues, I feel like I've finally regained enough of a foundation to stand on and start letting the creative juices flow again. I've really missed that!
Thanks for reading and thanks to Code Project for creating the connections to the people here that I relied on for some stability amidst all the turmoil, even though ya'll didn't know it.
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.
So I'm working on this WCF service and I need to add Basic Authentication.
Search on the big wide internet and I find a question. On CodeProject. From myself in 2016.
Answered by myself a day later in 2016
I had the same, but that's bad.
Apparently you were once an expert in that area, but you forgot you even knew
I know I had the same problem some years ago and that it wasn't easy, that's why I decided to Google it right away
