alias suse_version for getting the openSUSE version – openSUSE

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/05/19

I always forget where SuSE keeps its’ version number.

Hence my alias:

alias suse_version='cat /etc/SuSE-release'

.NET remnants of the past: Visual Studio .NET 2003 cannot start debugging as the assembly is missing

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/05/15

Boy, was this Visual Studio .NET 2003 stuff a long time ago.
Bumped into this one:


---------------------------
Microsoft Development Environment
---------------------------
Visual Studio cannot start debugging because the debug target 'C:\develop\VS-2003\VS-2003-BASE\Source\AppTest\bin\Debug\AppTest.exe' is missing. Please build the project and retry.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

Indeed, Visual Studio was right: it didn’t understand the Release build existed like Visual Studio 2005 and up does:

C:\develop\VS-2003\VS-2003-BASE\Source\AppTest\obj\Release\AppTest.exe

.NET/C#: Ctrl+R+R toggles wrap in Visual Studio.NET 2003 (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/05/14

A while ago, I had to do some emergency fixing in Visual Studio .NET 2003 as – despite it is unsupported – a client was still using it.

By habit, I tried to rename a variable using the Ctrl+R+R shortcut for Refactor Rename. It didn’t work, and I was not surprised: this refactoring was introduced in Visual Studio 2005.

A while later, I started to notice that WordWrap was turned on in the code editor.

It took me a few minutes and a quick search to find out the two are related:

Visual studio 2003: ctrl+R+R is the shortcut to toggle WordWrap in the code editor.

Thanks Micah for answering that!
