I haven't played with the data access stuff, but I thought Mono had
implmented System.Data. In fact, I thought they had implemented
more native data providers then .NET has...

Hi Urine Vendor ,

" Do You Need Any Urine Today ? "

From Ananov.COM , Leeds U.K. , September 2001
_ http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_389070.html

" Hindu nationalists in India
have launched a marketing exercise
to promote cow's urine as a health cure .

They say the urine , being sold for 30p a bottle ,
can be used for ailments ranging
from liver disease to obesity and even cancer .

The urine is being sold under the label ' Gift of the Cow ',
and is being enthusiastically promoted
by the government of Gujarat .

The urine is collected every day
from almost 600 shelters for rescued and wounded cattle ,
and is available in about 50 centres in Gujarat .

It also comes in tablets or a cream
mixed with other traditional medicinal herbs
and demand is currently outstripping supply .

Dr Jadi Patel , at the VHP's headquarters in Ahmedabad ,
said : ' It's very popular because
the results are very good , but we've got a shortage . '

The healing properties of cow dung and cow's urine
are mentioned in ancient Hindu texts
and authorities claim research conducted by doctors
at the cow-protection commission indicates
the urine can cure anything from skin diseases ,
kidney and liver ailments to obesity and heart ailments .

Although most Indian doctors view the medicines as eccentric ,
several advocates of the treatment have come forward
in Gujarat to support the claims ,
reports the Daily Telegraph .

They include Vidhyaben Mehta ,
a 65-year-old woman with a cancerous tumour on her chest
who has been taking cow's urine for the past three years .

She says she is no longer in pain
and has survived in spite of medical predictions
that she would die two years ago . "

Not likely. There are two types of techies like there are two types of
politicians. It is perhaps this binary relationship in human thinking that
makes the computer field so appealing to us. The MS camp will be around, so
will the *NIX camp. It will take a new revolution in computing to change
this balance.

Seemed a lot easier to me... And there is no doubt that for many
applications, languages such as C# and Java trounce C/C++ for
productivity.

C# has pointers. Didn't read about the "unsafe" keyword?

public class UsingAPtr

unsafe public static void Main()

int i = 5;
SquareIt(&i);
Console.WriteLine(i);
}

unsafe private static void SquareIt(int* x)
{
*x *= *x;
}
}

If your refering to MI - look at Eiffel .NET. That said - who cares.
MI is a hassle and often leads to trouble anyway. There is almost
always a better way to accomplish what you want to do.

How does it exist? Side-by-Side exection my friend... In fact, I have
a Windows Service that I compiled on the 1.1 framework - but running on
a 2K box that only has the 1.0 framework. Works like a champ.

I see you snipped context and you don't know how to write a sentence.
How compatible is what? How much does what cost?

Darwin is as compatible as any other BSD-based OS. It costs $0.00
Darwin/X11 is as compatible as any other BSD-based OS. It costs $0.00.
MacOS X/X11 is as compatible as any other BSD-based OS, plus it runs Aqua
apps. It costs $129.

Hi Spooky Ghost ,
You say : " And I'll tell him * how * ... :-) "

Tell me how ? I already knew how to do it .

But _ Ten _ times I said that I would _ Not _ compile it .

Because the code is too stupid ,
I don't compile worthless code .

I don't know how to make this any clearer .


Define "worthwhile code", then. I could cobble up something
using Glade, for example, and substitute it for jbailo's
admittedly rather silly example. :-)

For example, I could compute pi to 10,000 places for some reason.
Or simulate a daisy-cutter dropping on Saddam's head. (Of course
the main drawback with the latter is that I can't draw, period,
so it would have to be a very *abstract* representation of
Saddam's head... :-) )

I'll admit I do think the Java variant is simpler but
both are interesting. (I don't know how to set up
Winforms/Webforms.)

Actually, I hate worthless power companies more that worthless code...

I have to work all night on my lap top due to the power going off every 20
minutes or so.

Or going on and off every three minutes...

What's so hard about placing the lines far enough apart to live through a
wind storm ?

Do they have any idea what the Boomtown Rats sound like through 1 inch
speakers ?

Damn, the flash light is fading... time for the Coleman...

I missed the Java variant... Out of curiosity, could you point me to
it. But did you see my C# version? I know you had expressed an interest
in seeing one or at least the compile :)

Jeff was once a young programmer.
He'd stay up late nights, linking, compiling.
But now, give him a simple piece of code,
and he can't do it.

The first time her told her 'Honey, this has
never happened before, you know how I always
link.'

Jeff, it's over, your linker is limp, your
compiler is pooped, probably the only thing
that gives you pleasure is your debugger...

Hi Jay Bailo ,
You say : " Jeff , it's over , your linker is limp "

Oh no ... Not my linker ! ... How will I dink her ?

You say :
" Your compiler is pooped,

is your debugger . "

Thou shalt not bugger thy neighbor .
( Actually the U.S. supreme court recently legalized that )

I recall they days when I used to bugger my girl friends . :D
( Sometimes I'd alternate between the two " Ports " too ,
I never used condoms . )

I break into a song :
_ Those Were the Days _ , _ All in the Family _ Theme .
( As sung by Archie And Edith Bunker . )
from news:36***************@tiac.net

Boy , the way Glenn Miller played !
Songs that made the Hit Parade .
Guys like us ... we had it made .
Those were the days !

And you knew where you were then .
Girls were girls ... and men were men .
Mister , we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again .

Didn't need no welfare state .
Everybody pulled his weight .
Gee , our old LaSalle ran great .
Those were the days !

Hi Spooky Ghost ,
Are you going to be out haunting tomorrow ? ( Halloween )

You say :
" For example ,

Yuck ! That's just a bad as reversing a string .

You say :
" Or simulate a daisy-cutter dropping on Saddam's head . "

Hmmm ... That sounds interesting .

Could you make it John Baiiiilo's head instead ?

I need lot's of blood and ( Al ) gore too .

If you can't do the easy stuff...

how can you do the hard stuff

( or sorry, I didn't mean to say
the word 'hard' around you -- with
your *condition* and all )...

Does inflatable plastic constitute a 'girlfriend' ?

Just hope to God you cleaned it

speaking of Kinks (and the new Bowie re-mix):

Dirty old river, must you keep rolling
Flowing into the night
People so busy, makes me feel dizzy
Taxi light shines so bright
But I don't need no friends
As long as I gaze on waterloo sunset
I am in paradise....

Every day, I look at the world from my window
But chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunset's fine

Terry meets julie, waterloo station
Every friday night
But I am so lazy, don't want to wander
I stay at home at night
But I don't feel afraid
As long as I gaze on waterloo sunset
I am in paradise

Every day I look at the world from my window
But chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunset's fine

Millions of people swarming like flies
'round waterloo underground
But terry and julie cross over the river
Where they feel safe and sound
And they don't need no friends
As long as they gaze on
waterloo sunset
They are in paradise

Waterloo sunset's fine.

Can you grab a clue

GIVE IT UP !!!

NOBODY'S BUYING IT RELF

IF YOU CAN'T COMPILE A SIMPLE G++ PROGRAM

THEN YOU AIN'T GOT THE MOJO ANY MORE !!!!!

Wasn't planning to. :-)

You say :
" For example ,

Yuck ! That's just a bad as reversing a string .
So suggest something more useful. :-) I've got snippets
of this that and the other, and could cobble up
idiotic things in a pinch using Glade. Mind you,
putting intelligence into them might be the
tough part.

You say :
" Or simulate a daisy-cutter dropping on Saddam's head . "

Sicko. :-P But I could compromise: how about Osama? :-)
Instead of a moustache I could draw a turban and beard...
