    questions that amount to "somethings broken please tell me why" with no further information so you can actually diagnose the problem.

    @dave d !@#$% people who put if and endif on the same line of code!!!!!!!!!

    Especially as that wouldn't compile ;)

    You can have a one line if statement, but you don't require the end if.

    Back in the mists of time, I somehow inadvertently hit the Databases channel. A fact that I've only realised today.

    Coffee shops that put milk into your tea along with the tea bag, thus lowering the temperature of the water, ensuring the tea doesn't brew properly and tastes like dirty water.

    I somehow HID the Databases channel. Not hit it. I now have several years of posts to catch up on, such is my OCDness.

    The assumption that people actually want to have milk in their tea is strictly a UK thing. But as someone who takes their tea black, I completely understand, and sympathize.

    Even my kids are numbered 0-3.

    Although child zero is developing a complex.

    I had an issue with my wife numbering our children 1-3, until I realized she views me as child #0.

    @Tim P Anything 1-based.

    @Gavin S Anything 1-based.

    I'd disagree

    I dislike indexes that start at 1
    But counts should start at 1

    But then I'm kind of pedantic about stuff like this
