Subject Re: [OT] WinCVS problem (free beer!)
Date Wed, 05 Jan 2005 22:34:34 GMT
Indirectly I've thought about it... A lot of guys are using WASD at 
work, which is of course Eclipse-based, but I've been resisting.  I've 
used a number of IDEs over the years, and I've always found that they 
get in my way far more than they help.  That's just me, but it's been my 
experience.  At this point I have such a refined work style between 
UltraEdit and Tomcat that I can actually work more efficiently overall 
than with any IDE I've tried (and I have actually spent some time 
playing with WSAD, and it doesn't seem to be any different in terms of 
that).  They don't call me the Batch File King (tm) at work for nothin' :)

FYI, I'm trying to let WinCVS run it's course right now as per Glenn's 
suggestion.  I also tried hitting escape as Matt suggested, but it 
didn't unfreeze it, so it wouldn't appear to be that problem (plus I'm 
not seeing any drive activity, which I'd expect to see if it was doing 
what Glenn suggested).

It's weird, I can move the window around no problem, but I can't do 
anything with any part of the interface (and large parts of the 
interface get "erased" when I move any window over it, typical Windows 
frozen app syndrom)
