DCMonkey DCMonkey What?!?
  • Things Microsoft probably won't fix in Vista

    Manip wrote:

    - Missing - "No to all" - button on the copy dialog

    Isn't that what "Cancel" is for?

  • PNC bank using ASP.NET to run ATMs?

    I've seen the red X that IE shows when it can't download an image on my ATM

    I believe our phone system runs OS/2

    And remember, Diebold also makes ATMs! Expressionless

  • Slashdot hates Visual Studio

    Ctrl+W<spacebar> on a variable will bring up the autocomplete list with the variable selected and the tooltip you get from hovering the mouse over the variable next to it.

  • base.google.​com

    I wonder if:

    a) One of the attributes you can give a custom item is a relationship to another custom item.

    b) One could tag or otherwise organize existing created by others items according to one's own needs.

    c) If there will be an API so that one could write a WinFS sync adapter for Google Base.

  • VS2005 Standard = ​"​streamlined​" UX

    I just about had a #^%&fit but it appears that VSTO is still included in Visual Studio 2005 Professional with MSDN Professional Subscription according to this page:

  • Can WMP do this?

    From here:

    Set objPlayer = CreateObject("WMPlayer.OCX" )

    Set objPlaylists = objPlayer.PlaylistCollection
    Set objAll = objPlaylists.getByName("Dire Straits Playlist")
    Set objList = objAll.Item(0)

    For i = 0 to objList.Count - 1
        Set objSong = objList.Item(i)
        Wscript.Echo objSong.Name

    Modify the echo line to suit. Write it to a file even.

  • Microsoft shows off new Vista features

    I guess it depends on what the "core" of the MS AntiSpyware functionality means. IT could mean that just some basic spyware behavior prevention/detection stuff will be included as well as an API to let AntiSpyware software integrate into the security center. They could then charge for signature updates with OneCare (or you could use third party software).

    The fact that there is an AntiSpyware item in the Vista security center doesn't mean that it is only for MS's AntiSpyware. Remember that the Antivirus monitoring item just above it already exists in XP sp2 and works with 3rd party AV software.

  • What music are you listening to?

    I tend to listen to whole albums (or as much as I can fit in to and from work) at a time. The last five I listened to in part or in whole were:

    Rollins Band: Come In and Burn
    Interpol: Turn on the Bright Lights
    Cowboy Junkies: Lay It Down
    Hooverphonic: A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular
    Soundgarden: Down on the Upside

    (edit: I can't count)

  • Apple's Vingle? Huh?

    They're filing for a trademark not a patent.

  • Office 2003 Help

    Using Excel as example:

    Click Help->Microsoft Excel Help
    Click "Table of Contents" under the search box in the help task pane

    As for the What's this behavior, it looks like it is being deprecated in Windows Vista anyways so maybe you won't have to deal with it in the future.
