ChatGPT: something to play with over Christmas

ChatGPT is an AI chatbot. Basically you can ask it questions and it will (hopefully) come back with sensible answers. For example, I asked: "How to cook rice" and this was its reply:- There are many ways to cook rice, but one of the most basic methods is as follows: Rinse the rice in a fin...

Re: Splitter settings

Does anybody know what Splitter.Settings do? ... I think it just holds the same splitter data as .Layout For example, have a play with this:- Public Sub Form_Open() Dim iArray As Integer[] HSplit1.Layout = [50, 50] ' iArray = HSplit1.Layout iArray = HSplit1.Settings Me.Text = iArray[0] & "...

Re: Can a Telegram channel be nice to help beginners?

I just want to collect opinions... I love Telegram, but I wouldn't use it for this. I left Facebook in 2020 and managed to talk my family & real friends (i.e. not my FB 'friends') into using Telegram for personal communications. I use an RSS feeder app on my phone to monitor any sites of intere...

Re: sql apostrophe problem

...But a search containing that string with the apostrophe escaped fails ...Any ideas would be welcome The apostrophe can be a real pain because there are so many that look the same, but are different.

Re: Finding positions to paint around a circle?

...360 degrees divided by 60 places around the circumference But what commands would i use to get those positions? A rotating vector can be generated using trigonometry, so I think you use the Cosine of the angle to find the x & y points to draw your dots/marks/mini-circles. I'll try and genera...
