I am a software programmer using C#, C+, and (less often) PHP. I frequently work with SQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and XML.

I own a business for technical consulting, programming, general IT work, and designing custom electronics (usually for costumes and theater/movie prop use).

I enjoy computers, music composition, photography, writing, sci-fi/fantasy, birding, and occasional cooking. (Many of which are topics of SE sites!)

A note on capitalization, spelling, and grammar: I care about the quality and readability of the questions and answers on StackExchange sites. I frequently edit for these reasons. I understand that not everyone knows English as their first language. If I leave a comment for you asking you to observe some language-usage convention, it's meant as a helpful hint, not as an attack.

comment Can I permanently prevent Java security updates from installing Yahoo Toolbar?
Not only this, but once you perform a manual update, you must go back to the Java control panel and re-disable the "Check for updates automatically" option. It gets turned on with every update. I dislike Sun's practices with their updater very much.

comment Browser settings to block css and images
To elaborate on martani_net's answer, you can use Web Developer to disable CSS entirely or change to your own definitions.

This has worked for me with this problem as well, the hide/unhide toggle.

comment NTFS Partition Repair - Recommendations
At the end of the day the customer had a good backup and didn't want to spend any time on the old drive. However the ntfs.com information is extremely good and should be useful for the next time I run into a similar problem.

I'll give this a try and see. Same situation as above comment! I'd like to give some of these a try and see what works.

I will give these a try and see how it goes. At this point I'm not sure the customer wants to spend the time on it, but if they'll let me I'm willing to work on it for free to learn/try.
