Two Neat Things I Learned from Ed Bott

Two neat things I’ve learned from Ed Bott recently:

  1. What refresh rate should you use with an LCD monitor?
  2. In private e-mail Ed pointed me to Openwide:

    OpenWide was written to avoid a few [more] minor annoyances with Windows. This program allows you to specify the position and size of Windows’ Open and Save dialog boxes, and also to specify where the initial focus should be and which view will be the default.

  3. So far it works flawlessly and fixes one the most frustrating features of Windows.

Thanks Ed!
