I started my professional career in 1995. My first years were in C and Delphi. For the last 8 years or so I've been bouncing around between C#, Java, with a little C++. Currently, I'm Software Architect, working mostly in UML for design work and C# for implementation.

comment Is it really possible for most enthusiasts to hack people's Wi-Fi networks?
Defense in Depth (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_in_depth) "Rather than defeating an attacker with a single, strong defensive line, defence in depth relies on the tendency of an attack to lose momentum over a period of time or as it covers a larger area." The point of layering WPA2, a hidden SSID, MAC access filtering, strong passwords, and everything else together is never to defeat intrusion attempts. The point is to make the attempt egregious enough that the attacker will move on to an easier target.

@starblue, I think you're referring to the Dice-o-matic. hackaday.com/2009/05/26/dice-o-matic

comment Find duplicates of a particular file
Many of the options in that list above that are actually useful are only available in the Pro version. Still, the free version was a useful starting point.

comment Why is System process listening on Port 80?
I Stopped the Web Deployment Agent Service and set it to Manual start, then confirmed that I can still Publish to IIS on this server from Visual Studio and it's all good. Port 80 is now available to me, and my other functionality still works.

revised How do I uninstall Google Chrome *completely* from my Mac?
Escaped the spaces in the `Saved Application State` path segment, and added a command to catch the missing .plist deletion.

+1. I also found ~/Library/Google/Google\ Chrome\ Brand.plist.

comment How do I open a remote desktop session on a secondary monitor?
Despite the downvotes, @Ivan is right. In Windows 8, none of the other answers worked. Shane Vincent's answer was very close, but not quite there. It turns out, in Windows 8, the winposstr property works like this: "winposstr:s:0,1,xpos,ypos,xpos+width,ypos+height" The last four numbers are all absolute numbers, not "left, top, width, height" as you might expect.

I tried this as well, to no avail in Windows 8.

I expected this to work, and I'm sure I've seen this behaviour (maybe in XP?) but, fwiw, it's not working in Windows 8.

comment How do I open a remote desktop session on a secondary monitor?
I'm playing with this on Windows 8 and the only time it obeys those numbers is when the window is a window, not fullscreen, using "screen mode id:i:1". (2=fullscreen) And no matter what I set xpos to it refuses to place the window on the second monitor. It's bizarre. Any xpos greater than my "main" monitor's width, i.e. to push it onto the second, is overridden back to 0 when I open the connection. Frustrating.

comment Where is SVN on OS X Mountain Lion?
I initially +1'ed the accepted answer, but I added a +1 here because this worked without having to install anything (which may only have "installed" what was already there anyway.)
