Just the nudge I needed to get going

I have been wanting to get into playing around with Arduino for quite some time. However, for what ever reason I have not taken the plunge and ordered an Arduino board. That was until recently, a friend asked if I’d be interested in programming up a project for her, which just so happens to be …

Preventing Multiples of an MDI Child Form

I ran into an issue with my C# development, in the mdi-child forms being allowed to be opened multiple times. Which for the application I am developing at the moment, is not a good thing. Having multiples of the same form was confusing some database filtering for other forms. Having had this issue back in …

Simple console application to roll dice

Learning C# or C-Sharp, has got to be one of the best choices I’ve made when it comes to programming, Actually sitting down and learning the ins and out of classes, structures, interfaces, methods etc.. has solidified a lot more than just the C# code. It’s made a lot of sense as far as other …
