Re: Does anyone actually eat their recommended daily nutrion

Yeah, I can't think of too many canned vegetables I would touch with a ten-foot pole. Water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, beans...? I prefer canned green beans over fresh green beans (they don't taste anything alike, which is a good thing to me). Other vegetables such as corn are edible canned, but not...

Re: Firearms!

Post, dry firing depends on the weapon. For rimfire weapons and shotguns, dry firing can damage the firing pin, and on rimfires it can dent the chamber This is true for many rimfire guns and some shotguns (it generally only applies to break open shotguns like SxS and O/U), but not all. For example,...

Re: Working with CSV files on a web server.

You have to be careful about what you use for parsing csv files. Just using a split function doesn't work if the text in the csv file contains commas. For this reason, text may be enclosed in quotes. If the text is enclosed in quotes, then two quotes will be used to escape a quote. You would probabl...
