IE was crashing on me this week. I could not open it unless I did a machine restart.
Shawn A. Van Ness saved the day:
Dig the new UI for managing 3rd party browser
extensions... a bastion for a great many viruses, spyware, and just
generally crappy code:
Start / Run / inetcpl.cpl
click: Manage Add-ons...
I disabled all of my add on, except the one for Comcast (my personal email site) and I am up and running again.
I am jamming to Ocean Blue's "Between Something and Nothing" on XMRadio's "Lucy" as I write this..................lead in
I use to work with a developer who constantly shook his leg\foot, the right one if I recall. He also wore many rings and he would play with those (all while glaring at his laptop screen). One day, something landed in my pocket. Is was his ring! I chuckle thinking about that day. Tato, how ya doing!
My point is, we all have some tick if you will we do when we are intensely coding. What's yours?
I now pay close attention to folks when I am in a meeting. You know what, if seated, just about everyone is a toe tapper\leg shaker. Why I wander? Is it nerves, anxiety, stress? At home, I tend to count things, like the corners of pictures, the TV, things on the wall, over and over I count them. I think this is anxiety.
At work though I have yet to figure out what my tick is. I catch myself tapping my foot from time to time, though not as often as I use to since I am now aware of it.
So, lead in, maybe jamming to a tune is my thing........
Mark Levison will be hosting a chat on Smart Client applications on February 17:
I can end this whole VB.NET versus C# debate right now with one link:
We have identified a bug in SP1 (version 1.1) of the framework that Microsoft has documented.
Comboboxes are exhibiting a different behavior in SP1 then on a machine that does not have sp1 installed.
In our case, it causes all bound controls on a windows form to clear, though the data is really there.
This is an FYI in case you are experiencing this too. It took us a while to realize the difference between when it works and when it does not was SP1 being installed or not installed.
