    That was amusing. I expecially liked "Scans." Life is like that.

    the Backup/Replication actions sound just like what a lot of people do on Facebook.

    OK, I now want to try set-based TV watching...

    Anyone got a couch I can sleep on when the wife kicks me out for it? I figure if I use every screen in the house, I can do 12 episodes at a time...

    Mmmm, 12 Bugs Bunny cartoons at once, a big bowl of some sugar-coated cereal on a Saturday morning...

    I'd feel like I was 7 again!

    Replication - shouldn't be a problem - just assign that to the Kids role - they're all glued to their mobiles doing exactly that in any event.

    I am now searching (or rather, scanning) all nooks and corners in my home to find the hidden camera that just has to be installed somewhere. This is exactly my life! :hehe:

    Too funny! "Episode-By-Agonizing-Episode". 😀

    --Jeff Moden

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.
    "Change is inevitable... change for the better is not".
    "If "pre-optimization" is the root of all evil, then what does the resulting no optimization lead to?"
