I Just Weighed In.....

...and I'm 105.1kg, a mere 100gms off my first target weight and thus almost able to get my first reward. Well, actually I'm making myself record 3 days under 105 before I'm claiming I've made it.....

1/2 way there..... 100kg here we come.

My lovely interior designer cousin cousin, Anna Cuthbert (daughter of the other interior designing Cuthbert :-)), has just launched a business sourcing top grade fabrics and wallpapers for retail customers.

Anyway- if you want something a bit different or a bit classy :-) Take a look.

I'm Becoming a Student Again....

If Labour get elected I'm going to try and become a student again, take out a loan and get as much of the loan money as possible into my mortgage account..... I mean interest free money... HOW GOOD IS THAT!

DPF has some more comments here.

I mean Labour is all about income redistribution.... but this policy is nothing but taking from the poor (hard working blue collar families)... and giving to the rich (like me...)... it is completely insane.

It certainly makes the tax cuts (threshold changes) in the Chewing Gum Budget look like peanuts.....

DOS Glorious DOS- Good site for Bootdisk Images

OK... Wel I'm doing some work in good old DOS 6.22 today.... Speaking as someone who has seen the boxes in the Microsoft Museum this is a painfull experience.

In order to play with DOS I had to fina

a) A Floppy disk drive...

b) A DOS bootable disk image

c) A floppy disk

A/C weren't too easy a task- I had a USB floppy at home and some stoopid supplier of our continues to use floppies for drivers.

I found a GREAT site for boot disks though- you just download the EXE and it writes you a boot disk.

Think I've Fallen Off The Wagon

...with my exercise routine?

Well I have. but only in the last two days.

I've been kicking ass otherwise.

Weight was down to 106.9 last time I weighed in but it's much more muscle than flab now. I've been exercising a lot more- my fave trick at the moment is walking up big hills. I went up Flagstaff from Booth Rd on Sat in 42.26 minutes. I usually do Mt Cargill on Sundays but one of my staff memebers and a number of my paddling mates corrupted me with my own duty free grog on Sat night so I crashed on the couch with the dog for Sunday.

Had a bad day for eating today and yesterday- back on track from tonight.

Multiple Startup projects in VS.NET

When you are writing and debugging SmartClient applications yu often want to be able to seamlessly debug across the web service boundary. That is, you want to be able to set break points in both your server and cient side code.

This often means that you need to have both projects running in the debugger.

I just found out that VS.NET supports this nativly.

Go to the Solution Properties of your solution and check the 'Multiple Startup projects' radio button. You can then set the order in which certain projects are started up. e.g. Start the web services first and then startup your smart client project.

Very cool- you learn something new every day.

Jogging Through VS.NET - Contour Shuttle Pro 2 + VS.NET + Coderush

OK.... so y'all thought I had dropped of the face of the earth. It's been a stressful wee while at work.

But here is some cool new VS.NET foo for you.

I've been trying out the use of my Countour Designs Shuttle Pro v2 controller, the type you use for video editing, with VS.NET and Coderush.

It allows me to use the control surface to navigate my way around my code, jog in one hand, mouse in the other. I've also got it setup for a few other commands. It uses the Coderush smart navigation and smart selection stuff as well as Coderush markers.

This is my first cut at a settings file for the Shuttle and I'll probably change it after I've been using it for a while. but, I thought I'd share it anyway.

Here is the settings file and the HTML file that shows what each button/dial does.
