Typical directions in Arizona: Drive east on road xxx for five days and six hours, then look out for a sharp turn left. I really wonder how many were to busy with a telephone and did not see that turn coming. In that case a sign will not help very much.
"I don't know, extraterrestrial?" "You mean like from space?" "No, from Canada."
If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
Thanks for the warning! I was just about to jump on my bike and take a small trip from Stockholm to Phoenix...

You have been invited to a project of designing a program that can compute the total cost of sending a parcel from Namibia to other African countries. You are told that the cost of sending parcels is N$2.00 per kilometer. You are also told that, in addition to the cost of sending parcels, customers can be charged the following optional charges: • Insurance: 5% of total cost of sending a parcel. • N$50.00 for sending parcel via express service or overnight service.
Write a program in vb 6.0 to enter distance to be send by customer form other African transport. The program must select sending parcel service and display the total charge of the parcel
he program must select sending parcel service and display the total charge of the parcel

I'm serious (about the last part.)
I actually had a coworker who was kind of on his own because he lived on the other side of the country. He had his own customers and his own software. Just once in a while did we need to work together with him on some stuff. Back in 2014 he needed to make a new application for a customer, his language of choice? VB6! A lot of his applications were still VB6 with some old pre-SQL database. Yes, that was what the company once did, but they switched to VB.NET and SQL Server somewhere in 2005.

I guess this guy did not get the memo (and he really had not learned anything new since 1990)
In his defense, he has worked for my parents for over 10 years and made them a lot of money because he did get things to work (eventually) His customers were generally happy with his software, his coworkers were not
