Does the convenience of your blogging tool make a difference?


Here's hoping that it does. I've been a pretty lazy blogger recently, but I've got what I view as a pretty reasonable excuse: I'm getting married. Hopefully things settle down a bit before the wedding and I'm able to get some time to work on a series of posts I've been thinking about. Until then, here's my tip of the day: the file dialogs in Visual Studio 2005 (unsure about other versions) handle environment variables (e.g. for the feature I'm working on, I could type %TEMP% as the filename, press enter, and have it take me to the temp directory, where i'd find foo.vssettings. This might be old hat to many of you, but somehow I'd managed to not learn this until I tried it out on a whim the other day. Cheers!

    Jeff, it seems to be true only if the environment variable contains only one path 😉
