    Populating a nest list in class

    But you put the marks list within another marks list. So the code is working as expected. Take it step by step. Which part is knocking you out? ... : List<Marks> marksList = new List<Marks> (); //Creates new marks list Marks mark1 = {StudentNo="1",SubjectName = "History",SubjectMark = "50"}...

    PowerBeams for 1Km Range?

    -65db is signal strength (of sorts). Its what the colour bars on the unit represent. -90db would be a weak signal. -65 would be stronger. -55 would be very strong. Theres no cutoff here (or threshold) , but the stronger the signal , the higher the bitrate the powerbeams will select. So , you'll...

    PowerBeams for 1Km Range?

    I would start by resetting the powerbeams to default settings. Holding down the reset switch on UBNT gear and then and keeping it held for 10 seconds while the power is on usually does this. Then you set the IP on your machine to something like 192.168.1.5. Usually , the routers default...

    Your statement pretends that FNB is the only bank that is highly regulated. They are all regulated equally. If FNB bails , the other banks will follow suit in drone fashion , and crypto exchanges will cease to exist here.

    Where to find a suitable developer for a specific online query system

    This sounds like (and open to correction here) : 1. You are not sure if there is enough available money to hire a competent developer to complete the project. 2. You are trying to offload the risk onto the developers so that you don't have to carry it. And , this without offering any equity in...
