I am still alive and kickin'!

It's just that I have submersed myself into nopCommerce for an e-commerce solution. It does the job, but the team there dabbled in what seems to be most of the popular elements of e-commerce while not thoroughly ironing out the details in certain areas in order (especially, imho, how it presents to the user).

This, apparently, was done on purpose, because on issues that seem of importance to me (and to other users' questions) of which I have posted in their community forums, the standard reply is that such and such (interest that was posted) will be left to customization.

It seems the nopCommerece team purposely leaves the code as a bare-bones solution, in some respects, in order to attract developers to get in on the action of making some side cash on their MODs.

Sometimes, a person like myself might get help on coding questions and sometimes not. The community is not particularly versed in Linux inquiries although they do offer support as well as a version to work on Linux.

A person with some coding knowledge can make it work, but it does lack some attractive ease. I had to alter a lot of the "Views" to fit my needs. Other than that, it functions well enough to work as expected.

I do miss working with my Snitz stuff. I moved over to Linux because of Windows' entitlement issues.

I am having a good experience in learning the NopCommerce coding style. It's been an adventure for sure.

Hi Etymon glad you are still enjoying coding even if not Snitz

I spend a lot of my time these days working with Umbraco and was even awarded an MVP last month

Congrats, Huwr!

Yes, coding is a lot of fun and helps pass the time as well as ease the mind (usually - LOL!).

I was awarded a VOF (Very Old Fart) by my nephew (he's a colonel in the USAF whom I haven't seen in person since 1990, we're always on different continents). During his last security clearance update, an FBI agent came to see me and my nephew's note was "If he's still alive, he's a very old fart." The agent agreed and decided I wasn't a security threat. LOL

I've never met you, but glad you're still alive.

Had a massive heart attack last Tuesday. My troponin (a protein released by the body during heart attacks) level was 43.7, and no for those who are familiar with the numbers, the decimal is in the right place. The typical/regular value is between 0 and 0.039, with anything above 0.03 indicating heart trouble. So my troponin level was 1,120 times as much as it should have been.

The doctor said that patients with levels of .28 typically were suffering acute heart failure. He also advised that patient risk of death (within one year) with levels of .2, .5, and 1.4 was increased by 21%, 35%, and 47% respectively. The two cardiologists said they had never even heard of a patient with a level higher than 3.0 before me.

So if the increased risk of death within a year for a level of 1.4 is 47% greater, what would it be for someone with a 43.7? 2000% greater? Doesn't say much for my odds, does it?

For those who have never seen/felt a heart attack in progress, I'll let you know. It's uncomfortable. I was alone at the time and was plenty ready to die, if only the pain would stop. About 5 minutes into the attack, I was found. The next-door neighbor drove me to the hospital.

Three days later, I convinced the cardio team to release me, provided I return daily for anti-coagulant shots - because I can die just as easily at home as in the hospital, and much more cheaply. Although I have four different federal medical insurance plans (TRICARE, VA, Obama-disaster, and MEDICARE), not a one has ever reimbursed me a single cent since I moved to the islands - nor has any hospital or doctor accepted one of them during payment.

Thanks, HuwR. Next month I'll be flying to the States for the cardiologists to have a look, and to do whatever they recommend depending on the results.

Back on my previous message about receiving my VOF award; I'm just glad I wasn't walking somewhere in Washington DC three years ago, or that FBI agent would have said I was an "insurrectionist" and my nephew might have lost his security clearance because of our relationship.
