I use JetBrains ReSharper tool for a long time – it’s a very useful thing, that can help me to be more efficiently.

It contains a set of tip about navigating, code generation, refactoring, ......

Recently I found a problem with importing 3D models from FBX files: it sometimes imported partly. That is when you draw a 3D model, loaded from FBX file, processed by content pipeline, you got only part of meshes. “Sometimes” means that you got this error only for some files. Results of my research below. For example, I have 10Mb binary FBX file with ......

Visual Studio 2010 is not support built-in syntax highlight for HLSL, and I found great soultion – NShader – HLSL\ GLSL \ CG - Shader Syntax Highlighter add-in for Visual Studio.

RTM version of .NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010 is available, and now we can do some test with it. Parallel Extensions is one of the most valuable part of .NET 4.0.

Today I saw interesting behavior in VS2008: when you try to edit any View in the ASP.NET MVC project, main window of VS is not responding. Effect is like a some “invisible” modal dialog window is shown, and you can’t close it by Space or Enter. When you try to click in any part of VS’s window, you get an error beep. I tried to unload all of add-ins, ......
