Comment: All Questions All The Time... (Score 5, Interesting) 612

Woz, you no doubt get asked countless questions, by countless numbers of people, some of which you have been asked and have answered multiple times to the point where you're sick of continually having to answer them (or don't even bother). Conversely, I imagine there's something you'd love to talk about if only someone would ask you about it, but no one has. What I want to know is: what question has no one ever asked you, a question that you wish someone would finally get around to asking you and that you would love to respond to, and what is the answer you would give to that question?

Less filling! Tastes great! LESS FILLING!!! TASTES GREAT!!!!

WYSIWIG Pros - For a general audience. Relative ease of use, fast results.
WYSIWIG Cons - Manual overrides difficult. Cross-browser compatibility issues. Ties the site maintenance to a specific vendor (barring a full rewrite).

Hand-Coding Pros - More & complete control over all elements. Site maintenance not tied to a vendor.
Hand-Coding Cons - Steeper learning curve. Not for a general audience. Longer development time (generally).


Visual Studio 2010 Forces Tab Indenting 390

Posted by kdawson
from the one-man's-readable dept.
An anonymous reader writes "For years, Microsoft has allowed Visual Studio users to define arbitrary tab widths, often to the dismay of those viewing the resultant code in other editors. With VS 2010, it appears that they have taken the next step of forcing tab width to be the same as the indent size in code. Two-space tabs anyone?"

My S.O. and I are freaks. We also have FM radios throughout the house, along with the living room stereo system - where my S.O.'s PC also lives. I split the audio line from her PC: one line goes to the living room stereo, the other goes to a cheap C.C.Crane FM transmitter. This is the absolute cheapest way to get a single source of audio (CDs, MP3 library, streaming audio) into every room of the house. Note: the FM signal strength from the Crane transmitter sucked at first - then I found a web page that showed how you can open up the Crane transmitter and tweak the signal strength to maximum. Works great now.

Ya'll hear about the geometer who went to the beach to catch some rays and became a tangent ?
