      I'm a fan of both “Code Project” and “Greg's Cool [Insert Clever Name] of the Day”, so I really loved this episode.

      P.S.: Greg, coding in VB is nothing to be ashamed of. Wink

      what areu talking abt TommyCarlier

      of corse nothing to be ashamed


      it is a language as any langauge


      i am waiting from microsoft to put a new rule that any session in any conference without alternative vb code in its demos or presentaion have to pay penalty for that to return our right we vb programmer


      all sessions (excpet those who are talking abt vb) give demos in C# as if there is no 10 version of vbhasnt been releases since last 20 month not like them only recent 7or 8 years maybe


      any way this was my hallucination during the rest of studying for the final exams so dont bother ur self abt that of u dont like it
