Since embarking on a mission 15 years ago to know everything about software development, the only thing that has grown significantly is the list of things I still don't know yet.

Currently I don't know everything about microcontrollers and the .net micro framework.

I've recently decided to go freelance. If you're in need of a software developer and want to know more:

comment How do I know which Firefox add-ons will be disabled when upgrading?
Interesting. If you mention your old version and platform I'll update my answer to indicate this. If I think about it, this behaviour might be different on Linux too given the fact it might be handled by whatever package/update manager your distro is using.

comment Disk consistency check hangs - Windows XP
Yeah, I won't totally get rid of it, but this is the PC I used for work and I can't afford downtime on it. I'll keep the drive to use for downloads or I'll put it in a caddy for external transfers or something, I just think it's probably best out of my important PC.

comment Disk consistency check hangs - Windows XP
Thanks. If you're saying this is indicating hardware problems, I think rather than risking things and trying to diagnose, I'm going to order a new hard drive. It's only 250gb, which don't cost much these days, and it's far better than losing everything. Even though everything important is backed up, the PC setup would take ages to get right again. Thanks for the help.

@frankster. No idea, sorry, I suspect it probably isn't. Download it and try it. Report back if you do so everyone knows.
