Amateurs. Always stay one step ahead of your manager, so that you usually already have done yesterday what he might pull out of the sleeve to have done asap.
Only for very advanced managees; Always have a stick to throw for your manager, so that he can run and chase something and leaves you alone. You can easily double the amount of time you get him off your back if you can throw that stick in the direction of another manager and they get into a debate over who gets to chase the stick.

If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
My condolences about IE.
One reason I never latched on to shortcuts involving INS, DEL, PGUP, PGDN etc is that those keys tend to go walkabout. Each new keyboard has them somewhere different, and if you switch machines a lot, it becomes a right PITA.
I have one laptop (Asus) which has the cursor inverted-T wedged in too tight, to the point that my right pinkie hits UP and thinks it's right shift. I am forced to use an external keyboard to avoid the (otherwise excellent) lappie sailing out the nearest window.
Dredging into distant memories, I recall the grief I had when CRTL and CAPS LOCK swapped places. When was that, 70's? 80s?
Software rusts. Simon Stephenson, ca 1994. So does this signature. me, 2012
Yep, same here. I used to use only Ctrl+insert and so, and was even making funny of the Ctrl+C/+V "microsoft" copy and pasters. Then tried. Never came back, mostly because c/v keys on the left hand and mouse on the right.
Freshly installed laptop running Windows 8.1. Freshly installed VS 2017 - took 2 hours to download and install. Rebooted after installation completed. Crashes within seconds of opening it. tried 7-8 times. Rebooted and tried too. Same thing.
Tomorrow - uninstall 2017, install 2015 update 3 and go from there.
Interesting. I am always amazed that people are having problems with VS setup. I have never faced it. I have never used web installers, I always close absolutely everything I was running when I install anything. First step after install is to restart (whether they tell me to do it or not).
