Time for grading up

Now that my ol’ notebook (a Medion MD 41100, Dec. 2003) nearly has reached the biblic age of 4 years I looked around and spent some new parts. OK, that won’t change the mediocre resolution of 1024×768 nor the layout itself like a new notebook.

So first, some new RAM:

before: 512 MB, now 2 GB (two 1GB-Kingston-modules)

kingston-1gb-sodimm-notebook-memory 

Next, a new HD:

before: 40 GB Seagate Momentus 5400, now a WD Scorpio 160 GB 5400

WD1600BEVSretail

And finally, an extern case for the old HD, this time a Trust

One think I have to go now with is the different HD-busy-sound. The Seagate has a hard knocking while the WD swooshes like waves.

a greate line counting add-in for Visual Studio (2002, 2003, 2005)

Once every while I want to know how many lines of code I’ve written so far. And because I did not find a well working and integrated tool for this job yet I was searching one everytime. But it seems that I’ve found the tool: it’s called “Line Counter” and it’s Freeware. It’s a Visual Studio Add-In which means it’s fully integrated.

And it does the trick:

You can even get the sources of this Add-In. Go and enjoy!
