Gotta read this!

“for idiots like MS-Access 2.0 who SetWindowPos( SWP_BOZO and blow away themselves on the shell, then lets just ignore their plea to be removed from the tray”

“We have to do this only because Exchange is a moron.”

“should be fixed in the apps themselves. Morons!”



“The magnitude of this hack compares favorably with that of the national debt.”


Despite the above, the quality of the code is generally excellent. Modules are small, and procedures generally fit on a single screen.
