I recently had the pleasure of debugging a monolithic (1000+ modules, several with over 10000+ lines of code) COBOL dotNet application. Every time I advanced to the next line, the IDE would spin for a minute or more. This is not the ideal experience when debugging your code line by line. I spent some time researching various answers for my quandary. The following details what worked for me and some additional options that may work for others.
- Close, not minimize, the Autos, Locals and watches. Use the immediate window to display the value of a variable.
- When debugging, be careful not to hover the mouse over any variables. When you do the DataTip will display, requiring additional computation. There may be a registry setting you can set to disable DataTips, unfortunately, I did not see an option in Visual Studio.
- Disable edit and continue in your debugging options.
- Disable your antivirus.
- Cache your Symbols.
Thank you for reading and be sure to share it forward.
While developing web sites, I’m constantly discovering new styling quandaries. It is very inefficient to catalogue my solutions solely in the project I designed them for. In an effort to increase my efficiency and share what I have learned, I’m going to host my styling solutions on my blog.
Position two DIVs side by side without using the float attribute:
- <pstyle=“display:inline; font-weight:bold;“>HIGH SPEED</p>
- <pstyle=“font-size:8px;font-weight:bold;padding:0px;border:0px;margin:0px;“>LOW DRAG</p>
- <pstyle=“text-align:right;font-weight:bold;padding:0px;border:0px;margin:0px;“>HTML Tips & Tricks</p>
Size parent div to largest paragraph and stack children paragraphs:
Here is a screenshot of the result.

Looking to uninstall AccuWeather application from your Windows 7 operating system and there is no entry in the “Programs and Features” panel for the application. Also, there is no entry in the Start Menu. Not having any luck searching for a solution on how to uninstall the application. Well here is how I unistalled the AccuWeather application:
Close the application from the desktop.
Shutdown the process (accuweather.exe *32) from the Windows Task Manager – Processes Tab:
Task Manager Screenshot
Locate the AccuWeather application files. I just used windows search “AccuWeather” as the key to locate the files. The files were located in the following location on my computer:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell Stage\Dell Stage
AccuWeather File Location
Delete the files.
Now it is time to remove the start up reference. Open the System Configuration utility ( Window run “msconfig” or just type “system Configuration” in the Windows Start Menu Search Programs and Files search bar ). Navigate to the “Start Up” tab and uncheck the “Accuweather” entry.
Kick back, relax and live the dream.
Programming imitates life. Challenges are beset in front of us and we must overcome them. Mistakes are made and we must learn from them. We must evolve or become obsolete.
In our world, the challenge can be learning how to effectively use a new technology, optimizing a SQL query, troubleshooting a new technical issue, solutioning a new business requirement, overcoming the limiting repercussions on technology created by the bureaucracy of corporate policy limiting the innovation of technology, etc.
We all make mistakes (me maybe more than others). Do not be afraid of making a mistake. Similar to a diamond being formed from the constant pressure exerted on coal, we mature as a programmer from the constant pressure of resolving our mistakes and learning from them.
In aiding others in resolving their quandaries we become teachers. In our personal quest to improve we evolve and inspire others in their journey. To aid our brothers in arms and inspire them during their journey is the mark of greatness.
I’m a software programmer (Solution Savant). I have had the pleasure of working for several high profile companies: USAF, USN, Principal Group and Wells Fargo. I have no delusions of grandeur merely the desire to help those I can and learn from those willing to teach.
Live to code. Live by the code.
