I added a facebook like button to a few sites last night, and then noticed something curious - big horizontal scroll bars that weren't there before.
I have to write this down, it is totally bizarre. A colleague come to me to ask why F5 wouldnt build his project any more.
Sure enough, pressing F5 showed the File/Open dialog, but Debug/Start on the menu worked perfectly. The green arrow toolbar button worked perfectly.
Well, if this happened to you then I'm guessing you're ...
Here at my current gig at Lamps Plus I've been hearing more and more about ReSharper, and a couple days ago my license key arrived via email. Hard to believe it's been out since 2004 and I have never even seen it before, but I guess you don't miss what you've never had.
I've heard of ReSharper before of course, @scottw or ...
First, an aside: Just one blog post since leaving Telligent? wow. Even more surprising, how many times a day do you think I check Google Reader now?
In fact, I don't remember the last time I checked "the feeds I'm really interested in and never miss". Long story short, I just don't read blogs any more. I also ...
I recently moved my sites to Windows 2008 server and although I am repressing the memory of the pain and suffering caused by my lack of knowledge of IIS7 (assuming it really is me, not IIS7 that makes some simple tasks so much harder), after it was all done I happened to have Task Manager open. I can't remember why I did, but it was very ...
Aaaaaaaaaaaaah. There must have been an automatic update last night, I came in this morning to a signin screen and the computer was booting from scratch. Of course, I immediately turned around and went for coffee; it's not a quick process.
On my return, the normal things are running; Outlook, Google Desktop sidebar, Pidgin, Twhirl, SlimTimer. ...
I started Telligent as a PM, then went into product, then moved to the Microsoft-specific "sites" team where I wrote and maintained the http://silverlight.net site.
But that ended last week as the sites team transitioned onto other projects inside Telligent. Terri wrote about it here.
So, I'm back into the Services dept as a PM ...
I've always loved Lightbox - it just looks so cool. I've used it to "popup" larger versions of images on a few sites, but only today did I notice that it causes a security warning in IE7.
Unfortunately, this isn't highlighted as an issue on the lightbox page, so I didn't know about it - and this can cause cart ...
I was a little surprised that someone I talked to last night hadn't heard of this amazing service, and even more surprised that I hadn't blogged about this before.
If you have a router at home - and surely most of my audience does - you need to set it to use OpenDNS.
Do it today. It's free furchrissakes.
There are many ...
Clever, and definately deserved more than a tweet.
