When I see the biography I think of people who possess talent/vision/persistance/noteriaty. People who have achieved something extrodinary enough to make strangers want to read about them. Margaret Sanger (championed birth control at a time when the U.S. was even more prudish about sex then now), Malcom X (the growth and transformation of a hang-out street guy into a leader whose growing influence led to his assasination), Laura Ingalls Wilder (is there anyone who grew up in America who did not see even 1 episode of Little House on the Prairie?) are just a few.

They all also happen to be dead, so the prospect of a biography would not fill them with terror, sending them to the phones to shush friends and bribe the rest.

I meet none of the above conditions, so a biography would be pretentious, and most likely a snoozefest.

Truthfully, I don't even meet the simple condition of being knowledgeable in software, computer science, web design, etc. 2 months in a programming boot camp (like a puppy mill for purebreds) only taught me to cringe @ Chubb commercials. Whatever I know about computers has been aquired in much the same way owning your first 2ndhand car teaches you about mechanics. On the plus side, I do have a way with words ; )

What brought me to your site was a google search of the term "menu animation". Here I found helpful instructions on how to add tooltips (the ones that pop up when your cursor lands on or near target). Getting rid of these same apparitions devoured the better part of 2 weeks (forums, message boards, research, perstering friends, registry surgery, a geocities page -, all without results. From the looks of the microsoft forum, I see I'm not alone.

So, I joined to ask the gentleman who wrote the article (& anyone else who knows the secret), how to make tooltips go away. It's also an interesting site, which is icing on the hopefully tooltipsless cake!
