2AM is stupid
« on: February 15, 2020, 08:26:15 AM »
I woke up at 2Am and couldn't go back to sleep.

So I decided to try and tackle some old project I'd been working on.

For 5 hours I've been trying to solve 1 problem...running the routine, tweeking, changing running over and over and over wondering what in the hell is going on.  Checking API and forums for potential bug listed... getting sidetracked... going back to checking for bugs... only to realize, 5 hours later:

string info = textbox1.SelectedText;

should have been

= COMBOBOX1.SelectedText

someone shoot me.

Yup! I feel your pain. Yesterday I spent hours—and finally gave up—fighting with the linker (cpp, not .net though). I even created elaborate build instructions and I kept getting the same results; I decided that the program didn’t want to be written.

Worse yet is appears Autodesk decided to move all their documentation to someone else's computers (aka the cloud) and now it's a pain to google XD
