Inquisitive developer, programming teacher, avid reader, music lover, gamer; INTP; father.

  • web development veteran -- PHP, JS, CSS, the works
  • several years of C#/WPF/MVVM experience
  • used to fire a lot of C++ but not in anger for quite some time
  • know Windows Forms, WCF, ASP.NET MVC
  • lightly poked Python and Ruby

PHP is probably the ugliest language I 've ever used. So why do I love it?

comment How to tell which physical disks have bootable MBR?
MBR bootability is an attribute of the disk, not of a partition. Therefore I highly doubt a list of partitions can provide this information. Plus, you haven't really given an answer.

comment What is the equivalent of Linux's “~” (tilde) in Windows?
@Freewind: You will need to set it up to execute whenever a shell is started, which can be accomplished using the registry.

@abatishchev: Good question. This question on SF seems to indicate that %USERPROFILE% is preferable.

+1 but also add quotes around the variable (maybe it's c:\documents and settings\..., the spaces will break it unless it's quoted)
