Installed Visual Studio

Now that my computer is somewhat stable, I went ahead and installed the Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Standard Edition that I got on eBay a couple of weeks ago. It runs great so far. I have StyleCop installed and have been using it on a project. I have saved out the default settings that you can get if you ever need them, and have installed my own custom settings. I have used this color scheme for over a decade and it is similar to colors I used in VB 4.0 and Visual C++ 1.0 way way long ago. (Somewhere, I've still got the legendary Visual C++ 1.52c CD).

This setup uses the Consolas font, which is designed for programming environments. You can get it by following the link. It is also included in the ClearType Font Collection. You already have all of these if you have Vista or Office 2007.
