Didn't know the Windows-V trick, but this starts clear every time you boot the OS so it's not really a great solution. I use Ditto (https://ditto-cp.sourceforge.io/) which maintains all the history and has many excellent 'get-you-out-of-jail' features that have saved my skin so many times. Once you get used to little things like this their absence on other machines is keenly felt.
Question - when I accidentally type in the code window during debugging and VS says I have to 'edit' or 'continue', how do those options differ and why can't I EVER keep debugging instead of stopping and starting again?
I encountered that only with web applications...
I think the issue is IIS and VS try to synchronize to it...
IIS love to keep close binaries (pre-load and such), so VS have hard time to replace a DLL...

Stolen unashamedly from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
1) Nice steal.
2) Well, kind of, Marc (in USA at least). Your estate is liable for debts owed, including income taxes. I believe that's limited to the value of the estate, that not even the IRS can go after heirs' assets.
However, capital gains on investments are calculated from the investments' price at the decendent's date of death, not from the original purchase price. Hopefully, that's better for the heirs, and certainly a lot less hassle.
3) For those single people out there, make sure that your assets are what's called "transfer on death". This means the asset transfers to the designated person without going through the probate process. Thus, they're more immediately available, and the local government doesn't get a cut.
All of this is based on my experiences being the representative of a few estates in the midwest USA, and I am not a lawyer, so take these statements with a grain of salt.
