MSDN is the dogs ** for API declarations that you can't quite remember and pretty good for obscure Windows constant enumeration values (unless they were embarrassingly wrong or non useful and MS have conveniently forgotten about them in which case they'll be there be front and centre in Wine)
For anything else, especially learning programming concepts or techniques, it's useless.
PRO TIP: Never base your code on Microsoft sample code. Never admit to reading Microsoft sample code and make sure you clear your browser history thoroughly if you ever 'cough' accidentally download any Microsoft sample code. It is only good for one thing: demonstrating how not to program and most of us start out already being pretty good at that.

Microsoft (MSDN) blew it long ago. They seemed to have at one point hired a lot of technical writers to document their code, but between versions seemed to have fired them all. They then did not allow community input so that problems in the documentation could not be fixed by the users. Apparently they thought that they were doing a good job and did not need help. They finally started to allow community input, but this was long after everybody had moved away from depending on MSDN for help.
I just got a Logitech C615 (USB) webcam, and the logitech software is minimal. I need to capture images at a specific interval and upload them to a web site via ftp. Does anyone know of any free software that can do this? Has anyone here written such a thing? I could do it, but I'm simply too busy right now, and the need is fairly immediate.
Never mind - I found something called iSpy which appears to do what I need - free and open source iSpy Connect[^]
