Update: The VS 2012 Color Theme editor has a lot more options and subsumes the functionality of this settings file. Check it out! ——————————————— Visual Studio 11 comes in two themes: dark and light. I like how the code looks in the dark theme (since it is easy on the eyes), but I like how the menus and toolbars look in the light theme (the buttons look sufficiently different from each other.) So if you want to use the colors and fonts of the dark theme with the light theme UI, you would think you could just export out the fonts, change the theme, and import them back in. However, this has the bizarre side effect of causing all the fonts to become bold. So I went into the theme file and manually changed all the BoldFont="Yes" invocations, and finally I have a theme I like. You can download this settings file if you like, it has only the Fonts and Colors, so it should not mess up any of your other settings. Download Visual Studio 11 Dark Fonts and colors settings fi
I recently moved to Bangalore and subscribed to Vodafone. About a week and a half into the subscription, I get this SMS at 5:45 am, clearly designed to be as missable as possible. I hadn't subscribed to any such service. This seems flat out illegal. Anyway, I followed the message and immediately sent a STOP to the number. What followed is a hilariously intentionally vague UX: What do you have to respond? I was almost tempted to respond with "1, 2, 3" but instead did the 'logical' thing and punched in 1. I got a confirmation that it has been disabled. I have no idea what the silk service is, or whether I will be charged for it in my next bill. Let's see. EDIT: They did charge me for it, but I was able to call customer service and reverse the charge. It turns out that the imgur app for Android was injecting bad ads in the background that signed up the device for these things. My suggestion: do not use the imgur app on vodafone mobile data.
Today Kshitij, an aggregation of equally stupid minded fellows is happening in our college, with a record accumulation of sponsors and money being thrown down the drain. It is the tech-fest of our college. Yes, I am participating, but in just one event, Ataxia, that too because Loadu (Swarnavo Sarkar) forced me to. He was one short of a team member. Funny to think of it, our Ataxia team is the same group of guys in Electronics lab first year. Me, loadu and Sovik Kumar Nath. A couple of important things happened today. Well, I woke up a 8:20, which is a perfectly reasonable (hoo-haa in fact) on a Saturday, thinking that Soumitra will come to discuss the Quine McCluskey Algorithm. What I had forgotten was that we had decided to go to Gol-bazaar to get ourselves some of the amazing digital chips we found in digi lab. We went to Tech-Market, Soumitra and I. We found our marked out shop closed, so we had a sweet and Soumitra was wanting to withdraw money from the bank which had not yet open
