New version of RSS Bandit released (
A new version of RSS Bandit has just been released! Don't let the download page on their site fool you, they haven't updated it yet. The UI has a new look with new icons, the disappearing toolbar issue has been resolved, quick icons in articles for “read” and “follow-up”, and I'm sure many other additions.

Guidelines in Visual Studio 2002, 2003 and 2005 text editors (Thanks to Channel 9 and Sara Ford)
Ever since I fired up Netbeans for the first time I have wanted the 80 column guideline it has in the text editor window. Sure, there’s a control at the bottom of the text editor window that tells you where your cursor is column wise but honestly, a faint line right up column 80 works best. Of course not everyone likes doing this but I’ve found that my code is the most readable visually and printed if I force breaks at 80 columns, or perhaps 120 columns. Now, thanks to a Channel 9 post ......

Missing an item template in Visual Studio 2005? Try this...
NOTE: This is not in reference to Web Templates. In VS2005 Web Projects are created through a different menu item. If you here because you cannot find the web project templates make sure you select New... Web Site from the File menu. Twice I’ve installed Visual Studio 2005 (I use the Software Developer flavor, if that matters) and in the end I’ve been missing an item template or two. Example… I create a new Class Library project, right click the project and choose Add. The dialog ......
