    I think you're going to have to post to a VB.NET NG and ask what's being
    used, because I have seen them being used by people.

    I talked to one person that was using one converting a VB 6 application that
    was a company solution to VB.NET. He was having a problem with SQL server
    access that the code generated, but he figured it out and didn't seem to be
    having any other problems with the converter.

    Doing a quick search with Google, I did see 3rd party tools for this other
    than MS. You'll just have to investigate I guess.

  4. Keyboards can be dismantled and washed. I had a spooked cat intersect with
    a mug of coffee at high velocity, spilling it all over my keyboard, where it
    seeped right down into the plastic sheets behind the contacts, onto the
    circuitry, etc. That's the same keyboard I'm typing with now, about two
    years after the incident. :)

    Yep. I've done it too.
    Back when I lived in an apartment, the one over me flooded ( burst washing
    machine hose )
    My computer which was on, and keyboard ( I wasn't home ) just happened to be
    right under a light fixture in the ceiling,
    which "funneled" the water right onto the keyboard.
    Took it apart and went at it with a blow drier to get it nice and warm and
    then just let it set for a couple of days.
    Worked like a charm.
    However, when I restarted the machine there were all kinds of files and
    folders with weird names that only Bill the Cat could possibly pronounce.
    Took me a while to clean it up.

  9. Oh man there goes another keyboard.
    I've got to learn to not read these while I'm sipping a beer.

    If you don't know how to plonk somebody just say so; there's no shame in
    ignorance if you are willing to learn.

    It almost looks like a random phrase generator given the lack of sense. I
    wonder if it could pass a Turing test.

    Why did you bother to post? You must know what your status is with me.
    You're just a wannabe *flame* dancer. That's all you're about no more or no
    less.

    And my "status with you" is of concern to me, or anybody, why?

  18. It almost looks like a random phrase generator given the lack of sense. I
    The hands-down winner of the random phrase generator is Yahoo's Abuse site.
    I frequently received responses which made no sense at all compared to my
    report, and with repeated follow-ups, they became less and less sensical.
    Not one of them had anything to do with my report to them in the first
    place, leading me to believe that their entire Abuse Department is a 'bot.

    You should make sure you wipe Bob's behind, wash his behind and you
    brush your teeth, before you pucker-up and kiss that behind the next time.

  20. Hahaha...the best part for me was the line that said "In fact, a Florida
    company called Seal Shield makes keyboards that are 'dishwasher safe.' It
    says so right on the box."

    I was, of course, talking about removing every key, every screw, every
    everything that could possibly be dismantled and washing the parts
    appropriately (plastics get dumped in hot soapy water, everything else gets
    wiped down with a damp or completely dry cloth), then waiting overnight and
    re-assembling, using paper towel to get any last remaining droplets of water
    that were stuck in the keys. About the only problem with this is if you
    don't have appropriate lubricants handy to reapply to some of the
    force-distribution bars they put under the larger keys like the space
    bar...those sometimes tend to stick a bit when you depress them after being
    washed. (But this is easily fixed by going out and buying something to
    lubricate them with, of course.)
