I became a programmer just a few years ago, and my agenda has always been to eventually make indie games and use them for missions work. At this time though, I generally work on jail and prison sotware, using predominantly ActionScript 3.0 and Visual Basic .NET. Generally I work with video chat and monitoring software, often including a logistical interface for operators at the facilities. I hope to eventually use the valuable experience from my current job as a springboard for my long-term goals as a programmer and a Christian.

comment Opened a JPG picture with notepad, pasted all the “text” to a new notepad file, changed to .JPG and it no longer opens. Why?
Try using a hex editor.

comment When using Japanese IME and pressing Ctrl + Caps Lock, how do you make it toggle to half-width alphanumeric, not full-width?
No, dude, I've upvoted your answer. If you tried it and it worked, then it's a good answer. There was just something different going on on my particular machine.

It didn't work, unfortunately. Thanks though.

comment How can you go from IE 8.0.7600.16385 to IE 8.0.7601.17514 on Windows 7?
Thanks. I've had to sidetrack on a different subset of the issue for now, but I'll look a little more into your answer when I get a chance.

I know what you're saying, but we're having to integrate a bunch of different things together, and a lot of this is over a LAN. Since this computer is used for very specific reasons over that LAN, we're trying to alter it as little as possible. If that version of IE could be pinpointed to one particular Windows update though, we probably wouldn't have to get special permission or anything.

comment How can I completely and surgically block any communication between adobe.com and my computer?
Thanks, the hosts file thing worked. I couldn't just pull the cord out though, because I needed to connect to another computer still.

comment What does “@path\” mean on the command line?
Thanks. The reason I was wanting to get rid of them is that the space that folder takes up can get pretty ridiculous over a period of time.
