Why it just happened yesterday... Laugh | :laugh:

I spent 5 hours trying to fix a 'bug' where setting a chart series point to IsEmpty was not reversible and led to completely bizarre results. (works the first time, not the second) Found that IsEmpty for that object was the same as Double.NaN. Try using that and .NET complains that it can't handle NaN! Confused | :confused: (again, works the first time, not the second)

This morning, try it again and it works perfectly! WTF | :WTF: I love/hate it when problems just fix themselves! Laugh | :laugh: Hmmm...the only difference was VS2019 yesterday vs. VS2017 today??? Confused | :confused:

Edit: It still doesn't work! I just didn't test correctly! More research indicates that it's a known issue albeit an apparently rare one. At least they provided a workaround...only it doesn't seem to work either. (clearing the points and adding dynamically) Back to the drawing board! Sigh | :sigh:

Really though, my least favorite part has got to be communicating with colleagues. It's all too normal anymore for me to be stuck on a 1-2 hour phone call when I'd rather be fixing things! Sigh | :sigh: Also, there's communicating with family during working hours, which also happens way too often these days. Sigh | :sigh:

It's hard to be antisocial when every 10 minutes there's a phone call, text message, notification, email, etc. though I still try! Laugh | :laugh:
