Visual Studio IDE Tip
Every so often you come across something so useful, so fundamental, that you find it hard to believe you did not know about it! Yesterday was one of those days. I have access to an A3 colour printer where I'm working, so I printed out the Visual Studio 2005 Cheat Sheet that I mentioned recently.
