I did that mistake once. Was quite "interesting" that everytime I hovered with the mouse over the field name the value changed Since then the only "logic" in Setters is if an event has to be raised when the value has changed (e.g. NotifyPropertyChanged).
A man who defrauded fellow church-goers of $853,215 has been sentenced in the Dunedin District Court to prison for four years.
Damas Flohr, 69, pleaded guilty to seven charges of causing losses by deception during his trial last November.
Flohr obtained the money from the pastor and members of his Seventh Day Adventist congregation on the promise it would unlock $30 million owed to him from land deals and a Nigerian oil contract. In sentencing, Judge Michael Crosbie told Flohr he caused great harm to vulnerable and somewhat naive church friends.
The judge warned Flohr is at a high risk of reoffending because he still believes the money is in accounts overseas waiting for him.
Flohr was also ordered to pay reparations amounting to two-thirds of the money if he ever has the means.
Hellloooooo is there anybody in there????

As the test pilot climbs out of the experimental aircraft, having torn off the wings and tail in the crash landing, the crash truck arrives.
The rescuer sees the bloodied pilot and asks,'What happened?'
The pilot's reply: 'I don't know, I just got here myself!'
I always thought the most useless thing in an aircraft was 'ten seconds ago'. Also- A superior pilot is one who uses his superior judgment to avoid situations which would require the use of his superior skill; There are old pilots, there are bold pilots, but there are no old, bold pilots.
I read this in a book some years ago... If your engine fails at night, descend to one hundred feet and turn on your lights. If you don't like what you see, turn off your lights. There is no point spoiling the last ten seconds of your life.
I may not last forever but the mess I leave behind certainly will.
"A superior pilot is one who uses his superior judgment to avoid situations which would require the use of his superior skill"
That assumes that one gets the chance to use one's superior judgment.
A friend, who is a CFI (Certified Flight Instructor), and his student pilot were in straight and level flight when they were involved in a crash that cost the student pilot her life and my friend spent over a year in the hospital and rehab. They were hit from behind by a much larger and faster aircraft which disabled the elevator and rudder of their aircraft rendering it uncontrollable and unflyable.
Due to the subsequent actions of the pilot of the other aircraft I will simply say he was insufficiently punished for what he did.
Reminds me of the time way back when....an Auster with no radio decided he'd fly circuits and bumps faster than anybody else. He overtook me in my Beagle Pup, then ate all the Cessnas. The Tower lost the plot, the instructors lost the plot. I decided to get down as quickly as I could. Firstly I straightened out ATC by telling them which planes were where, and when the cretin in the Auster was on finals they fired off a flare - which he ignored. Then as we all piled up on finals, I flew two orbitals, right and left. Finals full stop. Got off the runway. ATC thanked me.
Of course my instructors were listening in on the ground.
Did they congratulate me? Did they f**k.
