I'm an Application Developer and Software Architect for a wide variety of software solutions including websites and desktop applications. Most recently focussed on a bespoke warehouse management system using C# 3.5 and SQL Server 2008.

Since my move to .NET I've become active in the community, attending monthly usergroup meetings and various conferences. I've even made a foray into speaking at usergroups about topics I am passionate about.

While I love experimenting with new tech and have a hobby project hosted on CodePlex, my current focus is less on specific new technologies and more on good principles and techniques.

When not at work I'm a family man, biker, amateur photographer, guitarist and of course, software developer.

comment Desktop icons rearrange after using remote desktop connection
No it's not a trick question. Of the two resolutions (the one I use when I'm physically in front of the machine, and the one that is set by RDP because my RDP client machine has a smaller screen), both are large enough that the icons needn't be moved around to make them fit.

Ahh, great stuff - I actually just tried that and I'm not sure I'm seeing a difference - see my updated question above.

But how does that explain that textpad opening the file and notepad opening the same file are getting different text?
