Today I was faced with an interesting dilema...
I was writing some windows batch scripts to automate some Subversion tasks and I wanted to re-configure the display of the windows cmd.exe window. I know Console2 and DOSBox are out there but cmd.exe is the default so I'm running with that for now.
So, in the cmd.exe properties dialog (right-click the title bar and select defaults) I configured the command window / dialog display options to be "Full Screen".
Once I ran my batch file, cmd.exe turned my laptop into a dumb terminal / DOS interface while running the sequence of events I had configured. It's okay, once complete it return back to Windows normally but that wasn't the effect I was after!! I simply wanted a larger command window within windows...
The problem now though was - How the hell do I get back to "Window" mode? Everything I ran with cme.exe was switching to this mode!!
Quite simply using the key combination Alt+Enter, I was able to toggle between "Window" and "Full Screen" mode.
So hopefully someone else looking for this Gem will find it here!!
All, sincere apologies, but I have just realised that my Contact form hasn't been working.
If you have used this to contact me please and I have not yet replied please resend to [niall] [@] [niallodoherty.com] or contact me using the details on my About page.
Once again, sorry about that and I am working with my hosting provider to get this resolved.

of bands \ artists performed live.

I was working with a 3rd Party file service \ handling provider and came across an issue whereby when I uploaded a Microsoft Office 2007+ document the "detected MIME type" was being returned as "application/zip".
Turns out there's an easy enough fix for this for their servers. Simply update the web server to include the new \ incorrect MIME types.
