Use Excel to help shortcut forms development

If you have MS Excel installed, and you do any sort of form based programming, this trick is right up your alley.   Excel’s drag to auto-number is one of my all time favorite features.  Often times I end up working on large form based applications and love firing up TextPad and Excel to help shortcut the time it takes to write my form handling code.

This video shows this trick in action.  Unfortunately the code is barely legible due to the zoom level, but the concept should still come through.


My Auto-Tune collection

Auto-Tune is clearly the special effect du jour in both hip-hop, and viral videos on the internets. Most people seem to be all up in arms about hip-hoppers overdoing it, but I’m still digging it. Mostly because I only listen to commercial radio when I drive rental cars and therefore control my Auto-Tune ingestion.

While we’re in the “Season of Auto Tune”, here is a collection of auto tune influenced videos that I just love to watch and watch over again.  If I missed any classic Auto-Tune action, please send me a link and update the collection.

I want to thank College Humor for making the most hilariously accurate iPhone video ever. I can’t stop watching this, it’s just too funny.  Here’s the original link in case there’s any embed issues –
