Will It Go Round In Circles?

I hate days like this. I spent all day (and several hours yesterday) trying to debug an application that appears to be corrupting the OLE clipboard. This has been made nearly impossible by the fact that the debugger keeps hanging up.

In a burst of inspiration, I ran the debugger on the debugger and hit break. It turns out that the copy of Codewright for .NET that I installed into Visual Studio is trying to find out what's on the clipboard. But since the clipboard is a steaming pile of entrails (see tonight's CSI for more), it fails. Over and over again. Although it certainly doesn't use much CPU while doing so...

Tomorrow, I find a machine without Codewright and try again.

This Is Too Much Guitar

Well, I found the missing guitar on Return of the King, Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Unfortunately, there's too much of it.

I also need to check a couple of tracks for artifacts, but I think when I fix this, I'm done.
