  • Blog Post: How to know when lines are a certain length in Visual Studio

    There are many reasons why you would want to know when a line in the code editor in Visual Studio is a certain length.  For me, it has to do with authoring books where the publisher needs to have a CRLF at a certain line size.  I found this page with a handy tip on how to edit the registry...

  • Blog Post: Testers Get Respect! :-)

    Check out Jeff Beehler's Blog announcing the Tester Center on MSDN here .
