Education is learning what you didn't even know you didn't know. - Daniel J Boorstin

On my day job I maintain a large database application for a growing Edinburgh-based travel search company. Every day I learn more about development and administration in the trenches, including how to cope with legacy worst practices and how to benefit from SQL Server best practices.

Studying part-time at Dundee University for an MSc in Business Intelligence.

+1 for documentation PDFs. These looks like the official documentation published by Microsoft.

comment How to set default web browser per domain?
@datatoo Opera has the 'Open with' context-menu option to open the current URL in another browser. But I don't want a URL in my messenger to open Opera just so that I can choose 'Open with > Internet Explorer'. It's quicker just to start Internet Explorer and copy the link into its address bar.

In particular, I don't want a link typed into the address bar of Opera to open in Internet Explorer. If I type it in Opera, it should open in Opera. If I type it in Internet Explorer, it should open in Internet Explorer. If the URL is found outside of the context of a browser, then the system should decide which browser should handle it.

I don't want to change my primary browser. I'm looking for a way for the shell to route a URL to a browser according to the URL's form.

I'm not typing them. The links appear in other applications. For example, someone sends me an IM message with a link to FogBugz case.

comment How do I stop Pidgin from running when I log in?
As explained in the question, the "Windows Pidgin Options" plugin is disabled. I enabled it to follow your instructions, but the option "Start Pidgin on Windows startup" is unchecked by default.
