Error Message of the Day

Here is a fun one. I got this error message when I opened up a VB.NET project in Visual Studio 2003 that was not part of a Visual Source Safe repository (or any source code control system for that matter):

Made me double take.

Compiler Error of the Day

by Nick Wednesday, February 22, 2006 3:52 PM
Here is a compiler error I got while quickly throwing together a custom collection:

Public Overrides Sub RemoveAt(index As Integer)' cannot override 'Public Overridable NotOverridable Sub RemoveAt(index As Integer)' because it is declared 'NotOverridable'

Overridable NotOverridable?! Huh?! Yet another reason why Visual Basic really chaps my hide.

Pet Peeve

Why do people insist on touching your monitor when they're showing you something on your computer? Use the mouse, or a closed pen... but for God's sake don't touch the screen! You think I want your finger prints all over my monitor while I'm trying to work? Someone was just over by my desk and insisted on touching my monitor about 20 times (not an exaggeration), and now every other word I'm typing on the screen is covered with a smudgy fingerprint. Excuse me while I go get some Windex.

Another Del.icio.us Wish

by Nick Friday, February 03, 2006 4:04 PM
I made a wish a while ago looking for tag compliments. Now I've got a few more, now that I'm using del.icio.us more and more.

First, I'd like them to improve their Tagroll feature so that I can limit the tags list only to show those that are included in a specific bundle. They already do something similar with Linkrolls, which allows me to only show links that have specific tags associated with them, now I want similar functionality with Tagrolls please.

Secondly, I'd like them to add more functionality to JSON (javascript object). Specifically, I'd like to query with a specific URL, and get back a list of the tags associated with that URL.

Finally, I'd like some mechanism so that I can mark a link as private, and only visible if I'm logged into del.icio.us. Yes... sometimes I want to hide my porn. So sue me. ;) At least I'm brave enough to admit it.
