Posted 23 Apr 2014People still use VB6?
I had to write software to convert VB6 to VB.NET and the translation tool that MS made had faults (or the vb6 code was so poorly written that it was impossible to automate) so I did it by hand. This was for the federal government, when the federal government decides that something is too archaic and moves on, I think people should take that as a sign lol.
I actually learned to program in Visual Basic 3.0. I used every version from 3-6 and honestly, VB.net seems to be the way to go in my opinion.

This is why America is technologically crippled, nonsense like this.
I'm fairly sure people on this board have spent far far more time online than the recommended 2 hours a day for kids 12 to 18, and effectively calling us invalids and developmentally stunted is downright insulting.
As for the poor grades and sleep deprivation, I at least was horribly bored with school and found it pointless, so I took to learning things on my own time which often collided with sleep. In fact it's one of the key reasons why I was able to take off in technology.
File this under Huffington Post again demonstrates their lack of technological knowledge.
What are your thoughts on this one?
I think a lot of people are able to make good use out of technology, but at the same time I see a lot of people blatantly misusing it (at least, according to my standards). I do have a small issue with the internet...
When I was 12-15 when I was on the computer, I was learning how to program for no other reason than because I found it interesting. so I would stay up all night hacking away at the keyboard writing "progz" for aol 3 and 4.
This was before popup ads, and the internet wasn't very commercial at that point, so it was mostly educational material that I found. The best I had was aol im, and eventually "AIM" but it seems with the advent of social media its really possible to just get sucked into a world of endless content and passive living. Social networks have definitely made a lot of people feel more disconnected than they were previous to them (at least according to the people I know). I dont really know how to handle that situation, but I dont think I'd let my children use the internet much until they were about 14-16. I'd let them use computers a lot no doubt, and I'd give them all the resources they need to learn about them and whatever they want to do, but I just think the internet as it is right now isnt very good for developing minds.
I'd really prefer if young kids focused on being social and played outside with each other. As much as I love technology, its just not as important.
