@mansellan checks chat history Ah, yes... a running problem.
@Comintern This is certainly true. When I added VB6, I added all the bits from its OM. I added no tests specific to it. But TBF, they have no known relevant specific behaviour behavior. They are class modules. Specialised forms to be sure, but class modules none the same. Our reliance on enums, and not even flag-checking them, will cause problems.

Time to play Where's Mug?
 
Found him very shy I believe.
 
"Vlookup like a boss". True... On so many levels, true.

Something new and it's making me go WTF
I'm building on another machine, fresh repo, everything, and I'm getting a build error
Severity	Code	Description	Project	File	Line	Suppression State
Error	GenerateIdl	Could not load file or assembly 'olewoo_interop.dll' or one of its dependencies. The specified module could not be found.	Rubberduck.Deployment	C:\GitHub\Rubberduck\Rubberduck.Deployment.Build\IdlGeneration\IdlGenerator.cs	49
Normally that kind of error is straightforward; it means that the file is missing or otherwise unusuable but why only this machine?
To make it even more baffling, I verified that I can enter the procedure but it throws when it tries to call a overloaded method:
One'd thunk that a bad assembly reference would not even let me get that far into the procedure at all, no? Is it an error message for something altogether different? Anyone else encountered that?
It builds fine on my original VM last time I checked

@IvenBach hehe.. I was in the back... there's a fun story about that vlookup sign, but ... #NDA =)

@this Random thought, does that machine have the C++ build tools installed?

A conflict somewhere?

2:03 PM
@M.Doerner it is installed. But I probably should try and run the command manually to verify it is sane.
@PeterMTaylor Normally this would be a compile time error, not a runtime error during the build
 
@this that’s reminiscent of the error message my work box gets.
I wonder if it started for me after modifying VS and what it has installed. I’m interested to know your results if you can get yours to build by modify what your VS has installed.
@Hosch250 May want to mention that ReadLine waits until the Enter key is pressed before continuing. That had me stumble a few times when starting with C#
 
Hmm.
I took the post down for a sec.
I kind of broke it trying to edit it.
@IvenBach Check it again.
Hi, @Gangula.
 
3:28 PM
@Hosch250 Hi @Hosch250,
 
What's up? Come to discuss Rubberduck?
 
Frankly I've come to see what goes on in a Chat room, But I found the rubberduckvba.com from here which I think I great.
 
@Gangula welcome to the pond.
 
What goes on depends on the chatroom.
Some chatrooms specialize in posting offensive content to non-in-groups. Some are for general chatter, some are for specific projects or discussions that should happen outside the general chatter rooms because they end up being too opinionated or generate so much chatter, and some are for moderation or testing bots or anything else, really.
 
@Hosch250 you should mark that first sentence as sarcasm ...
 
3:37 PM
Oh, it's not.
Anime and Manga, for one, contain a lot of content that is offensive to non-fans of those, etc.
Not saying it's bad, just saying it's offensive to some groups.
 
bah... you mean there's a handful of people that actually kick up a stink about that?
because the A&M main chatroom has undergone quite some changes since I last actually seen it
 
Maybe it's changed. I don't follow it :)
 
being tapped into the network-wide whisper network kinda helps
 
Well looks like the A&M chat room is no longer active :P
 
meh.. they're just taking a break...
last message 5 hours ago. the room pattern indicates they just hit their usual slump in activity a bit sooner than average
 
3:47 PM
From what I noticed, Anime and Manga just split into two groups that don't fight any more, but still post the same stuff.
In different rooms.
At least at first
 
3:59 PM
@Gangula If you look it the top right of your browser you'll see what this room is for.
It's discussion, mostly, pertains to the development of the rubberduck addin for VBA to help write better code.
@Hosch250 :+1: You may want to think about using <kbd>Foo</kbd> instead of <code>Bar</code> to indicate a difference. I'm going to have to go through the pains of that myself for my own posts.
 
Maybe...
Why?
 
That is, a difference between code and keyboard keys.
For me personally I'd like to have a slight visual difference between them.
Say a standard gray background for the code and a orange-gray background for keyboard
That's mostly because I really like being able to see keyboard shortcuts and identify them easily.
 
Which parts should be keyboard?
I don't have any shortcuts in there...
 
Enter is a key "technically" not code.
 
Oh.
Yeah, just that one.
FWIW, I'm not sure kbd is even a standard tag.
I'll have to look into that too, before I decide.
 
4:06 PM
That's why I mentioned just thinking about it.
I've never been up to date with web tags...
 
> Tip: This tag is not deprecated, but it is possible to achieve richer effect with CSS.
It's supported, but it sounds like it might not be for too much longer.
 
hrmph...
So better to create a keyboard class and use that?
> Good governance never depends upon laws, but upon the personal qualities of those who govern. The machinery of government is always subordinate to the will of those who administer that machinery. The most important element of government, therefore, is the method of choosing leaders.
@Hosch250 ^ From Children Of Dune (Book 3).
 
@IvenBach Can you do that in wordpress?
 
So glad our benevolent duck has no desire for power.
 
Yep.
 
4:16 PM
@Hosch250 :shrug: I have to look into that.
If you've not read the Dune series, again, I highly suggest it.
 
Interested. I've seen it on Sci Fi.
Also really want to read Terry Pratchet.
He sounds right up my alley, with some awesome puns.
 
Never saw the sci fi mini-series. I'm really hopeful the movie will do the books justice.
 
I mean sci fi SE.
 
4:38 PM
@Hosch250 The books by Terry Pratchett are really great, especially the Nightwatch ones.
And yes, the puns are awesome and frequent.
Just do read the discworld series from the beginning. He was still ramping up in the irst two to four books.
 
I tried to get The Colour of Magic.
It was on the backlist for like 6 months, and never got around to me.
Then, I hit a really busy schedule where I couldn't read, so I took myself off the list.
Because if you reject it when it's your turn, it bumps you to the end of the list anyway.
 
Colour of magic is actually one of the weaker books in the series.
 
It was the starting one, though?
I was trying to read them in the order recommended by Wiki.
 
I would rather suggest to start with Guards! Guards! (start of the nightwatch series), Pyramids (standalone) or Small Gods (standalone).
Oh, there is a recommended order somewhere?
I only know the nice flowchart of plot dependencies.
 
@MathieuGuindon You have a pretty sweet set of stats going on for rubberduckvba.wordpress.com.
It looks like my hosch250.wordpress.com blog when I started college :)
 
4:48 PM
Huh?
 
Views, countries, and all :)
 
Yeah....
I have them in the WP app too
 
There is one?
 
Yeah. They even have a widget that shows you "today's stats"
 
Nice.
 
4:54 PM
@IvenBach wasn't your failing to build on the Core project? My error is further along the build.
 
@MathieuGuindon @this @M.Doerner @Comintern how about release today?
or tomorrow evening?
I'll be off to a birthday party soon, but I'm available tomorrow "evening"
 
i'm still not home yet
so I'll trust others. :)
 
at this point anyone with merge privileges should be able to push out a release.
 
I can do it now...
Is there any reason to wait?
 
I don't think so but the main concern would be to react if something asplode.
 
5:06 PM
I'll be in airports and up in the air all weekend (what a mess).. landing in Vancouver 8 minutes after boarding to next flight has started
 
@this Oh, right.
 
@MathieuGuindon It takes you three days to fly from Seattle to Vancouver? ;-)
probably get there faster by driving
 
@this IKR?
 
I hope it works out, though!
it's not fun hopping airports
 
my Toronto-Montreal connection went from 2 hours to overnight, so I'll have time to write up a blog post about the release
THANKS BOEING
 
5:11 PM
You know, they could have avoided all that fiff-faff if they just gave a manual override switch and disable their faulty automation
But I guess they took clue from a certain software company. The name's on my fingertip....
 
Apple.
 
No,not a fruit. A Software company that's small and soft.
 
LOL, the fruit is worse about it.
 
5:42 PM
Max spotted the culprit. I was indeed in a weird limbo where i had some C++ tools but not MIDL installed. That was causing the problem; the error message had nothing to do with the olewoo_interop at all. When I get back home, I'll see what I can do to improve the error handling or make clear which package from VS installer are actually required.
One clue was that previously when I opened up the command prompt for developer, it did not recognize the MIDL as a program.
Once it did, then it built.
Loads of fun

@Hosch250 I have seen the trailer but Good Omens is a film adaption of the late Terry Pratchett work. It is on Amazon Prime with David Tenant from Dr Who.
