comment Visual Studio 2012 Intellisense choosing the wrong item
hah, I just played that back for the first time and realised there was sound, whoops! good thing I wasn't humming to myself or whatever. Enter and Tab both triggered the behaviour. However, in the latest version of Visual Studio (2013) it no longer seems to happen

comment How do I test the motherboard on a laptop with a broken screen?
I've already ordered a new motherboard, and it arrived yesterday. I'll take a look and see if I can see that issue on the old mobo. Is this similar to the issue the xbox 360 used to have, that could famously be fixed popping the motherboard in the oven for a few minutes?

comment How do I test the motherboard on a laptop with a broken screen?
I've already popped it open and reseated everything. It powers on, the hd light seems to show activity and all status lights above the keyboard (wifi etc) flash exactly once. The battery charges. As in, the battery charge light came on and the battery charged fully over the course of an hour or so. the battery charge light then went out.

comment How do I test the motherboard on a laptop with a broken screen?
sorry @charlieRB, I guess I wasn't clear enough. The screen appears to be dead. There is no display. I can't tell if that's the only issue though, as I can't tell how else to test the machine.

comment Using the same local folder for Dropbox and Skydrive
ah, yes, I see how that's confusing. I just wanted to shift priority to SkyDrive on the desktop to match up with the phone, as I mostly use Dropbox at the moment

yeah robocopy seems like a better solution, although maybe more often than once a day (on the hour maybe?) Not sure what you mean about trying on a phone as we're talking about desktop clients!

comment Best way to speed up my old Macbook Pro?
Will it make a difference though? as I stated in the original post, my SATA bandwidth is 1.5 Gb/s, so that's going to severely limit any SSD I put in there.

according to that thread I have to delete the .ncb file from the solution directory. There isn't one!
