What can I say? Programming is my day job, sure, but the truth of it is, well, I like tinkering.

And I like doing (digital) things the hard way, for the sheer pleasure of learning and because I sleep better afterwards.

comment Formatting in Eclipse
No, as far as I know you can't apply formatting as you type. The only workaround I can see would be to use Templates (Preferences -> Java -> Editor -> Templates), which allow you to start typing and then, after pressing the 'autocomplete' shortcut (should be CTRL-Space), will insert a snippet of code formatted as you like. There are lots of pre-defined templates, try typing 'if' and then autocompleting with CTRL-Space to see what I mean.

comment How do i make Mozilla Thunderbird opening attachments in appropriate application?
Apparently, yes. Thanks for pointing it out. I found an updated version elsewhere, and updated the answer (after verifying that the modified version at least installs correctly on Thunderbird 3.1.7).

comment Under Windows 7, how can I delete a folder whose name ends with “…”?
You're welcome. For the record, I just edited the answer to add a link documenting the "\\?\" path prefix.

comment Is there a way to determine which service (in svchost.exe) does an outgoing connection?
The TCP/IP tab should have a "Service" column which, for example while looking at an instance of svchost.exe, tells you which service owns each connection (among the services grouped under the same PID). Right now I'm using PE 12.00, and at this moment I can't check whether the "Service" column was there in the previous version, but it should be worth a try.

comment What does it mean when the computer is repeating long beeps?
Does the computer start at all? Does your monitor display anything? Are you able to boot into your operating system?
