It's still better than what a previous line manager of mine produced after a couple of days: a fully reimplemented "generic" dictionary without IDictionary, using a list of generic keyvaluepair with key and value types both string.
I am building a Rich Text Editor, similar to what I did before, but I am laying out the solution differently. Instead of having the Rich Text Display Binding in the main assembly, I am making it its own AddIn. I am also using Git source control, and will upload the project to Github. I am also planning on adding Python scripting capability.
I have just started this one, so it may be awhile before I get it working.
Git source control. I keep hearing this, "have you put it on github?" and similar. One of those things I'd not heard until 6 months ago and now its everywhere. So, having worked with CVS, PVCS, Team System, Subversion, SourceSafe 6 (Gentleman's choice - none of that nasty branching), Perforce and that God-Awful ClearCase there's yet another one??
The philosophy is not the same, that is a bit change. Git (or Mercurial or Bazaar?) is a distributed revision control system, e.g. you get all or a big part of the repository locally, to be able to work offline. You may not used the distributed feature e.g. set it up like a centralized revision control system, but then it is a big step back compared to Subversion+Tortoise, IMHO.
Vault, MKS, ... did not make it to your list.

On the one hand he's not been dead long enough IMO and it feels wrong to have a politico on the bank notes. I don't like the precedent the latter will set and it politicises the notes.
On the other hand a truly great man, certainly saved the nation and a terrific (in all senses of the word) war leader.
In any case, I wouldn't have used that quote, it seems downbeat. I'd have gone with "but tomorrow morning I will be sober".

I'm trying to backup my large (37K songs) iTunes library. Unfortunately iTunes has stuck some songs in one place, others in another and some movies in a totally different place even though I've asked it to stick them in one place and keep them there.
So I do the "consolidate files" thing and it barfs because there's not enough room, and in barfing it seems to have become confused as to where the files now are.
So I just throw all the files from each of the 3 places it has stored the files back onto iTunes assuming it would not re-add a file on top of itself.
I should mention I'd had a couple of glasses at this point.
So, obviously, I end up with a ton of dupes. So I have another glass of red and spend several hours trying to dedupe. Finally I settle on Dupin and get the dupes sorted out Hours), get the playlists corrected (hours) and then purge the duplicates, check iTunes, clean out missing tracks, and close and restart iTunes to ensure it picked up everything OK.
It didn't. Not one bit of it.
This is because I'm storing my iTunes library on a network drive (a Time Machine, so all Apple) and iTunes probably felt that saving an entire 10Mb file (the itb library file) was all too hard and so it just quietly failed on the save and hoped no one would notice.
The thing that really galls me though is that I often get strings of "Can't save library file" errors when MacOS (bless its little cotton socks) drops the network connection. MacOS and its stellar networking is a rant best saved for a long, rainy day). When I get the error everything stops in iTunes and I just navigate to the network drive and off we go again.
But no. Not this time. Something failed on shutdown and it was as quiet as a mouse.
