No, I played it straight. It's a bit complicated, so I really don't want to stir the pot right now.
I'm rebuilding an old power line across the desert, and part of it crosses a span of mountains that was recently leased to the County to build a nice park. My contractor is currently stopped and costing me $25,000 a day because this person won't sign a memo that acknowledges that we are taking reasonable precautions to protect anyone who might hike through the park while we're working. No one is using the park - it's bloody cold here, by local standards, with temps in the low 40s and wind blowing at 40 mph. No one will notice that we've come and gone.
Are you kidding me? He made some of the best movies ever: Death Wish I, II - and the best one of them all: III (need I say more than "teeth"???)

I have been working on a small(ish) NSIS script editor (Why? Why Not?), and I have gone through three syntax highlighting text editor controls:
* ScintillaNET - Very powerful, just a little hard to wrap your head around
* ICSharpCode.TextEditor - Highlighting is goofy, hard to use.
* Storm.TextEditor - The one that just works!™
Storm.TextEditor actually highlights correctly, and is blazing fast! After a short bout of adding a syntax highlighting file for NSIS and getting Drag'n'Drop to work, I am on my way to getting this app done!
I also hit an odd issue where the framework could not convert an icon to a bitmap due to some missing metadata that appears to be OPTIONAL. I had made the icon from a png with the '@Icon Sushi' application (the original developer is Japanese, hence the strange name), which is what spat out an 'invalid' (for the .NET Framework at least) icon. I used convertICO.com to try again, and that worked. Go figure.
If you guys want me to, I will post a link to the source/binaries when I get them online. And that 'when' may be a while (School and stuff).
And wish me luck in getting up at 6 AM for a 7:30 AM Economics class. (Actually, the professor is very funny and has the amazing ability to keep a room full of half-awake students occupied and interested for a full hour, at least!)
The internet is a great way to get on the net.
