Go Vote: User Settings per Project
When working on multiple projects/solutions from different companies or private vs. open source projects, each project can have different language settings (for tab size, curly brace locations, etc.). Keeping these settings at a global (IDE) level forces me to constantly switch between global settings and remember which settings file belongs to which project. Allowing these settings to be kept at a solution/project level (in a separate settings file) would allow each project to dicate what its settings ......

wh00t its up!
Its 1:11am and John, Jeff and I are finally done with update. We are definitely still working some kinks out but considering the amount of content we moved, and that we moved it from one application to another is quite amazing. Jeff was saying that GWB 1.0 had been up for three years and that this is the first time it has received this much love. I am personally really happy that John and Jeff chose to go with an open source project and hope that it continues to be a rewarding experience. I know ......

What does it mean to be to be ALT.NET? In short it signifies: You’re the type of developer who uses what works while keeping an eye out for a better way. You reach outside the mainstream to adopt the best of any community: Open Source, Agile, Java, Ruby, etc. You’re not content with the status quo. Things can always be better expressed, more elegant and simple, more mutable, higher quality, etc. You know tools are great, but they only take you so far. It’s the principals and knowledge that really ......

VPCs and Software Updates

Holey Rusty Metal!

There has got to be a better way to manage multiple vpcs. I am using different vpcs for different projects and now when MSFT releases a patch/update I have to sit through it N times.

This sucks

One Volume to Rule them All
I am pretty sure there are reasons behind this but I still find it irksome. In order to listen to the music I have to deal with three! different volume controls. 1. Device Volume - Which I can control via the Keyboard 2. Application Volume - Which I can't control via the Keyboard 3. The actual speaker knob - Nope can't get that one via the Keyboard either. ;) Anyone, does Vista fix this? I kinda doubt it. What I would like to see is the ability to quickly toggle a beautiful (ie not a gray screen) ......

Keep the Internet neutral, fair, and free
Here’s a real world example that shows how this would work. Let’s say you call Joe’s Pizza and the first thing you hear is a message saying you’ll be connected in a minute or two, but if you want, you can be connected to Pizza Hut right away. That’s not fair, right? You called Joe’s and want some Joe’s pizza. Well, that’s how some telecommunications executives want the Internet to operate, with some Web sites easier to access than others. From Craig Newmark via 37signals ......
