Angry Tiger

Teh Anger! It Burnz!

I'm trying to use VB.Net's treeview control (I know, I just lost 90% of you) and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to determine when someone uses the control's scrollbar. There's a scroll included as part of the control, but no scroll event is exposed for the control! WTF! Why the hell wouldn't they include that? To make things even better, the scroll bar is outside the control's region for detecting mouse events, but not outside enough for it to revert to the form's detection area.

If anyone knows the answer, or is bored and feels like websearching and has better luck than I have, I'd really appreciate an answer.

As many of you know, I have a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder that I've had since 1997. I bought it new and it now has over 259,000 miles on it. I don't drive it much anymore as I now have my Toyota Prius. While perusing the News Wires, I see a headline that reads Toyota, Nissan Issue Safety Recalls. I have 1 of each, so I figure I should read this, thinking maybe there's a problem with the Prius, but surely my 1998 Pathfinder won't be included in this.

The Toyota recall is for the Camry and a Lexus something-or-other.
The Nissan recall? The recall involves Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX4 SUVs from the 1997-2001 model years.

Huh! And the recall is only for cold-weather states and Canada. Why?
Nissan Motor Co. said it was recalling nearly 420,000 sport utility vehicles because of possible corrosion in the tube where motorists pump gas.

Nissan said its recall was prompted by an inadequate amount of coating on a bracket by the fuel filler tube assembly. In states that use road salt during the winter, a mixture of snow, water and salt could cause corrosion on the bare metal part of the tube and allow fuel to leak.

Nissan dealers will replace the fuel filler tube assembly with a new one with an improved coating process. Owners will be notified beginning in late November. For more information, owners can contact Nissan at (800) 647-7261.

I like that they won't start the notifications until late November. Surely we must give weather one more shot at corroding the car!

I wonder if this is what's causing the gas smell in the cab of my truck...
