#@xs4all only over AnnexB with FRITZ!Box 7340 #fail: line sync issues; offline most of the time, max 4 mbit. @xs4all needs to give me some compelling arguments to regain trust in them. @xs4all_HD

xs4all won’t tell you up front, but they changed a couple of things that will bring your 10 mbit down / 1 mbit up to something that hardly connects, and if it does less than half the speed.

This is also a post on how XS4ALL treats long lasting (15 years!) customer relations. Badly.

They advertised XS4ALL ONLY (since it on the copper pair you only run DSL, no phone, so you don’t need a splitter) as faster, cheaper and more stable internet and VOIP connection.

“Cannot navigate to definition” annoyance in Visual Studio 2010 – (did it implement the mouse equivalent to Delphi code browsing? No, it didn’t)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/03/08

This use case drove me nuts in Visual Studio 2010 for a while, but can be solved.

Use cases:

  1. Cannot navigate to definition.double click on a word to select it
  2. press Ctrl-C to copy the selected text

    Microsoft Visual Studio
    ---------------------------
    Cannot navigate to definition.
    ---------------------------
    OK

    OK
