  • Blog Post: How to get favorites listed when searching in the Start menu

    There aren’t many Vista features I am missing in Win7, but one that I most definitely miss is having favorites appear when searching the start-menu. Now, you can add a favorites menu item to Start, but that’s not all that helpful for me – what I want is to be able to search in the Start text box and...
  • Blog Post: Windows 7 useful shortcut – run as admin

    It was driving me nuts to right-click/run as admin each time I needed in Windows 7/2008R2. So I tried to figure if there was a shortcut. A quick search did not find anything, so I just played with it a bit. Apparently Ctrl-Shift-Enter allows you to run things as admin both from the run dialog (Win...
  • Blog Post: Creative workarounds – Windings edition

    11/24/09 - Correction - Sergei contacted me to explain that I got it all wrong - Windings does not give all the required shapes (Circle, Triangle and Square).Instead, Sergei had to hunt until he found the perfect font that supported all that perfectly - Good ol' "Arial Unicode MS". In older posts...

    Margins. In script. To set? Use element.style. marginTop . To get in runtime? Use element. topMargin . Arghhhhhhh! It's like DHTML is forcefuly trying to make me hate it.
  • Blog Post: UlsViewer released

    The folks in Office Operations released the Uls Viewer tool – it allows users of SharePoint to easily view and analyze ULS logs produced by the system (though not initially designed for user consumption, people seem to have been using the logs pretty much since we shipped). This also allows users of...
  • Blog Post: Optimizing life – Life in Async

    I was going to get coffee today at work, minding my own business, when someone from the test-team asked me if the order I was doing things when preparing coffee was intentional. Absentmindedly, I explained the reasoning behind the order of things and how I reached this way of doing things and belatedly...
  • Blog Post: Awesome mouse-pad

    We have a surplus computer store near my house which I like mostly because their pricing on cables is not equivalent to the GDP of a small island state. They have some real wonky stuff in there - very old printers, monitors, etc. I passed through there today and saw this: Most-awesome-mouse-pad evah...
  • Blog Post: Transitioning from TiVo to Windows Media Center

    I finally made the jump to Windows Media Center 2 months ago or so and, overall, I am much happier for it. I have had TiVos in my house since 2001 and it has gotten to be that I just never watch live TV anymore. I adore the concept of the DVR and am greatly annoyed when I dont have it at my fingertips...

  • Blog Post: Image Resizer for Vista (and XP) - Just a right click away from Explorer.

    You can download the resizer here . I don't know about you, but I am sorely missing the XP toy for image resizing. Windows XP had its power-toys, but Vista does not. And while some functionality has been baked into the shell, explorer right-click has not. On top of that, a feature I have been wanting...

    Image Resizer has moved. You can find the downloads here.
  • Blog Post: Vista Time Saver: Copy full file name to clipboard from Explorer.

    Thought I'd drop a line, since this is a feature I have been looking for FOREVER and never got around to writing it myself. In Vista, if you Shift-Right Click a file name in explorer, it will give you an option called "Copy As Path". Selecting that, will place the full name of the file (including...

    Well.. What can I say. I am still not disillusioned with the device. What is it I hear you say? I have just been using it for two days? That's true. We'll see how it goes.. Installed a gadzillion things on it. So far, so good. Way more stable than my previous pocket pc. No question about it. Been...
  • Blog Post: TMobiles MDA - Fit the First

    I finally did it and bought an MDA from TMobile. I have had the HP Ipaq 6315 for almost two years now. If you are not keeping track, the 6315 has got to be one of the worst devices to ever come out. Having passed minimal to no QA, the device came out and distributed by TMobile. I pre-ordered it and got...
