    C# BackgroundWorker Woes

    OK so I'm not a pro at C#... I've managed to put together some code that runs in a BackgroundWorker process, and it works great. Once. On the second launch, it goes straight to the RunWorkerCompleted code, which fails because .result isn't defined. Any suggestions? First run works...
  5. Sharky domains

    Hello, As you may or may not have noticed, it looks like domains hosted by have gone the way of the dodo (i.e. extinct). There is nothing x10Hosting can do about it - no domains are resolving right now (including mine! :mad:). For those seeking alternaties...

    It's now 140p/ltr, which (I think) works out at $8.70 per U.S. Gallon. When I started driving it was 70p/ltr . And this just makes it worse... it was about £1/ltr cheaper when I was born!

    Quick Q about autohotkey... Is it possible to set up a script that detects when I've put my machine in standby or hibernated it, and then if it's been in that state for, say, 5 mins or more, it locks the machine? I don't want it to lock every time, but I'd like it to after a period of...

    REALLY Simple PowerPoint question (I hope...)

    OK, really simple question - I have a powerpoint presentation. I've set it to 'windowed' in the 'set up show' box in powerpoint, and verified because hitting f5 in powerpoint shows it windowed. If I use the freely available PowerPoint viewer shows it in fullscreen mode! Any suggestions on...

    I hate 'environmental groups'...

    We're not all ecomental hippies that can ride ethnic peace bicycles to work, powered by an overinflated 'save the planet' ego... It's carrot vs stick - punish people for driving vs offer incentives for not driving. I'm kinda based in two offices at the moment - my main office requires a 45...

    Excel; some sort of licensing?

    So, I've spent literally days/weeks/ages working on a financial model in Excel which will be given to the client. Now, I'm a protective kinda guy, and I don't want them thieving it for another project, but I do want them to be able to make slight changes. Any ideas besides just locking...

    iopd touch wireless

    So, I got myself an ipod touch. Work has wireless internet, and it's encrypted, but doesn't use a pre-shared key. I believe it uses the Windows authentication and a certificate (I think). Any ideas how I can connect the touch to this network? Obviously, I know my own credentials.
