Jquery Menu: Starting out
l will show you what I am doing lately with jquery. I started out using the suckerfish menu for a customer app. All went fine for awhile but suddenly the menu started acting weird with problems indenting and such. I finally figured it must be interacting with other css stuff. So, I thought how the heck do I fix this?

Development gotcha #1
So, last year I was working a large SL 4 project. Things rolled along well but… One of the devs the client forced on us was a guy who claimed to be a senior developer but was really a very junior one. Now the client had him doing all kinds of work and thought he was awesome. So one day I was debugging problems and found this.

MVC–won’t start debugging with IIS as server
Heres a good one. Today I was working away and fixed a simple bug. Then hit F5 again and VS says” Can’t start app in debug mode. er. Restart VS and try again. Same deal. So, hit Control + F5. Get a 503 error this time. With a quick search I found this: So, I opened IIS Admin and sure enough, then Default AppPool was stopped. Restarted it and now it works. Weird ......
