I was up until 01:20 this morning debugging code in VB.NET 2010. For hours I thought there was something amiss with my math or logic when a calculation in a secondary window which was affected by Radio Buttons kept giving an erroneous result.
The Problem – Visual Basic .NET Radio Buttons
At first I thought I was trying to use public variables in the wrong way and completely re-wrote the code only to get the same error. Eventually I found for myself by debugging with several breakpoints that when the secondary window was opened there was an automatic click on one of the Visual Basic .NET Radio Buttons (RadioButton1).
This post describes: How to remove a Bra Support Wire which has come out of a bra and penetrated the inner drum of a front loading washing machine. These wires tend to come out of badly maintained bras while being washed. They don’t necessarily damage the machine immediately but always have the potential to do so. They are often noticed by the noise they make while the drum rotates.
. . . you will not go to a Tesco website. Look carefully and you will see that the real URL behind the embedded link is displayed above the hand pointer when the hand hovers over the link in the text.
In the facsimile above the obscured paragraph reads:

You will in fact go to:
This is not somewhere I’m going and I wouldn’t advise anyone to go there. You might pick up a nasty cold. It looks like a games website in Spain (the domain is “es”). I presume the page looks like a Tesco Finance log-in page. When you enter your log-in credentials the owner of the page can save them and use them to log-in to your real Tesco Finance account and play a dirty trick on you.
This email was delivered to my MS Outlook Inbox from a btinternet.com account. It wasn’t picked up by them as spam nor was it detected by Norton Internet Security, presumably because it is a new kid on the block.
I have forwarded the email to TESCO Bank for their perusal.
So now you know how to check a suspect email. Good luck and watch out.
This time we (my wife and I) enjoyed a day on the trains at the Great Central Railway based at Loughborough Station. We went dining on a steam train at the Great Central Railway on 26th May 2012. This pleasure was a Christmas gift from our son. We had 1st class tickets to travel up and down the line during the day, as we pleased, together with lunch on “The South Yorkshireman”.
We were able to choose the date when we used the ticket so we chose a very good one with wall to wall sunshine. You can see our table in the Restaurant Car in this Featured Image if you haven’t already seen it. (This photo was taken from the outside through a window hence the reflections.)
