I love this effect, and I have been using this effect in an way, no one might have thought of... Say, I use it as, "Yes I can do it!" See where it all brought me to,
  1. On August 16, 3 years ago, I didn't even know there are function in programming, and they can take parameters. Here is the proof, Inserting data in database.. | The ASP.NET Forums[^], see how "stupid" I was.
  2. After a while, a year, I kept working and thinking "I can do it", I was awarded MVP at C# Corner, again at C# Corner, then at CodeProject, and now Microsoft MVP too. Can you go from zero to hero, in 3 years, that even Microsoft starts to "not" ask you to buy their products and just use them? Wink | ;-)
Take my advice, use this effect. It will make you brighter. Smile | :)
