Visual Studio 2010 Forces Tab Indenting 390

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?"

So, you're looking for job security by continuing to use languages where it is difficult to code something up? Good luck with that. If point and click programming does the job well and can be done quickly, why would a manager not want to use that style of programming for their projects? I wonder how much C# programming you've done yourself. It's an excellent language and very readable/maintainable when used by software engineer who pays attention to quality.

This exact issue recently came up for me. I had an offer from what I thought was a good company with a pretty good future, doing embedded systems development. However, i was concerned that there was no cohesive software development group, no version control system or codebase with only basic interest in this, no SQA. It was suggested I have a conversation with a higher up, and the conversation proved that there was no knowledge and no interest in changing any of these things and that there was a lot of reinventing the wheel as a result.

The job didn't work out, it's too bad, but things like that can't be changed unless the job you're being offered comes with some authority to make changes and the support to do it.

Comment Re:what does this mean for 1080? (Score 1) 317

I bought a 720P 46" LCD rear projection. It looks great to me from ~10' away and I don't think I'd see a ton of difference with 1080i at that screen size.

What I do see is all the image artifacts from compressed channels and it pisses me off. There's a big difference between the good ones, like HD Theatre and the bad ones. I have FIOS, but I don't think they are the problem, I think it is compressed by the source carrier before it gets to them. FOX seems to be one of the worst offenders. It makes me feel that I am not getting what I paid for.
