  • Re: 2 questions - vml, and documentation

    We use VML in one of our apps to create a well-scalable background watermark. But the app is used only in IE 5.0+. Personally I've made a piechart example in VML, and some spinning cubes (sorry, couldn't resist ;). On documentation, we've been having to properly document (Function Design and Technical Design documents, and function header ...

  • Re: syntax highlighting: its been bothering me

    I've tried doing it with regular expressions in VB.net. (I wrote a database tool that was much faster than enterprise manager on MSDE an could do almost all the (simple) things I do on databases). It turned out to be very very slow (one of the problems is the richttextedit field, it's not very fast). If you want to go through with this I suggest ...

  • Re: Odd Font Problem

    I remember having a similar problem when using VML in Inernet Explorer. Writing text at 90 degree angles sometimes went wrong completely. My solution then was to make a 89.99 degree angle, which seemed to solve the problem (although long text would skew a bit).   Drak

  • Re: how do i fix my 80gig HD

    Hmm, why is Raiden all of a sudden a haxor kiddie? He has a problem with his harddrive. And he didn't make a backup. I must admit, I never make backups.. For one, buying 50+ DVDs to backup 250 GB of stuff doesn't really sound so cheap. Drak
