This weekend I took a much needed break from work activities, and amongst other things
setup the Christmas tree and made cookies. Not just any old cookies however, along
with the snowmen, Christmas trees and other holiday favorites, I made special Windows
Vista launch cookies to enjoy later this week in celebration of Vista making it’s
Well, official debut I guess if you don’t live in Canada where Edmonton Alberta hosted
their Vista launch last Thursday. (I wonder if there were any cookies?) Speaking
of Vista, it runs SOOOOO much better now that I have yanked the crappy ATI video
card out and put an nVidia card in. No more weird artifacts and other video issues
that the ever crashing ATI R300 drivers were causing.
Really just a bookmark for myself, but if you’re trying to remember how to do something
with a keyboard shortcut in VS2005, visit here: http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/files/Visual%20Studio%20.NET%202005%20Keyboard%20Shortcuts.htm

In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
