Copying to Live Writer

I love the fact I can copy and paste screen prints into a blogging program, this is a nice feature of Live Writer.  I was frustrated with the implementation of it.

 

Default Paste to Live Writer

Paste into word

Notice how Word sets the picture to the max size of the current margins?  It also performs the resize by keeping the aspect ration the same.

This got me thinking, maybe I haven’t crossed all my Ts and dotted my Is.  The then tried the "Advanced" picture settings on the right of Live Writer.  And I found what I looking for, a better way to adjust he size.

I was previously resizing by using the mouse, this was a pain because the document size does not enlarge so the workaround I use is to add some blank lines and then resize.

This is much easier.  Unfortunately I can’t draw on the image and circle the Advanced tab on the right.

Nullable Types and Intellisense Bug/Problem

The following issue is as follows:

The variables are defined as:

DateTime? EndTime

DateTime StartTime

The result is a nullable<DateTime> but intellisense does not recognize this.

 

The first image is the compiler error and my first attempt:

clip_image002

 

The following is what is displayed in Intellisense:

clip_image004

 

The following is the correct syntax:

clip_image006

 

 

The pictures seem to lose quality when pasting them in Live Writer.  I’ll have to re-blog in text one day.

Price too Low to Advertise, My Butt

I’ve seen the following a few times and just think it is ridiculous, “Too Low to Advertise.”

It goes in the opposite direction the standard business practice of advertising when you have the lowest price and what that price is.

If the price is presented for every other item, why wouldn’t it make sense to advertise the price for a really good priced item?
