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 Would Microsoft Security Essentials be adequate protection?
I agree with bobince, the vast majority of issues I repair on my clients' computers tend to never have been detected by their installed software, and could potentially have been avoided if the user had been a little more educated on what sorts of messages/windows/popups are real versus phishing.

You can also Windows Key + Tab for an admittedly over-the-top graphic preview experience.

This isn't a programming question, you should ask this on superuser.com.

comment How to install Visual Python in Ubuntu 10.04?
Installing falls more into the realm of superuser.com and serverfault.com, you might try your question there. (Even though it is programming-related.)

comment Visual Studio on laptop and desktop
One problem with Visual Studio (possibly others) is that when viewed with TightVNC or UltraVNC, the tooltips and intellisense boxes do not display. :(

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.
