  • ASP.NET worker process run amuck.

    You aren't by chance running any Crystal Report stuff (the .NET version) on your web server?  We learned long ago that generating PDF documents from a web app consumed many resources, sometimes for an extended period of time.
    Your situation may vary of course.

  • Favourite Track

    Media player on random with 1000's of tracks.
    Anything by Pink Floyd will get my attention and compel me to crank the volume a little.

    I am getting to be an old ogre. . .

  • Microsoft Scalable Fabric

    Doesn't work on my machine using Win2000 and .NET 1.1.  I keep getting a .NET Framework exception:

    ************** Exception Text **************

    I couldn't seem to find any information relating to requirements for the research downloads.  Maybe I need XP?

    Remember, from a politician's viewpoint there is no such thing as bad press.  Any topic that generates interest or contraversy can somehow be twisted to make the general public form a favorable opinion.

  • Tabbed Text Editors?

    EditPad Pro is my first choice, but it is not free.
    Has a handy utility to compare one file to another and highlight the differences in a new file. 

    Notepad++ is my second choice and does a fairly good job.

  • Autoscrolli​ng textbox aka "Output window"

    How about a ListView control?

                    Dim fntListView As New Font("Lucida Console", 8, FontStyle.Bold, GraphicsUnit.Point)
            Dim lsvSubItems(2) As String '3 columns
            lsvSubItems(0) = "My Data"
            lsvSubItems(1) = "More of my Data"
            lsvSubItems(2) = "Last of my Data"
            ListViewItem = New ListViewItem(lsvSubItems, Nothing, Color.White, Color.Black, fntListView)
            ListView.EnsureVisible(ListView.Items.Count - 1)

    The EnsureVisible will show what you tell it to, without reloading all the data.

  • MS Sues Google - Google sues MS

    I once worked for an industrial company (Company A) that had all employees sign a 1-year non-compete agreement.  One worker left the company and decided to work for a competing company (Company B) up the road.   Company A caught wind of this and decided to take their chances in court.  Company A won the case, and the employee was forced to leave Company B until his 1-year wait was up.  Keep in mind that this wasn't a high-tech workplace and the case was handled in Minnesota.  The employee in question worked for the Sales dept. as an application engineer.

    Five years ago, I left that company, to be where I'm at now as a software developer/team leader.  My current employer asked me to sign a non-compete and I outright said 'No'.  It had no effect on me getting or keeping my position.
