[3 Nov 2007 | Comments Off on Release vs. Debug Mode Strangeness in WTL | ]

I was working on writing a Windows based application for work that was using WTL and DockingWindows and I was getting the strangest bug. When I used Visual Studio 2005 Express and compiled in Debug Mode, everything worked fine, but in Release Mode, one of the docking windows which was an “Owner Drawn” ListViewCtrl would never draw. The docking window container would appear, but the background would never fill and the list would certainly never show. Strangely, it ran just fine if it was compiled in VS 2005 Professional.


[26 Aug 2005 | Comments Off on Termites Be Gone! | ]

The PCO guy just showed up to help eliminate our termite problem. He has to drill into the basement floor every 2 to 3 feet with a huge concrete drill. Holy smokes! Is it ever loud. He started at 7:30am and he’s expecting it to take several hours. I’m going to be deaf.
He has to do the entire perimeter of the house inside, and then repeat along the outside of the house. Hopefully this will slow the destruction of our poor little rental house.
