BSODs with Crucial M4 SSD

If you are getting frequent random blue screens with error KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR 0x7A and you have a Crucial M4 SSD, you might want to update the firmware for the drive. Crucial have acknowledged the issue and released a firmware update which fixes it. After applying the update, my machine has been running for 6 or 7 hours whereas previously it could not get past 1 hour before crashing… so far so good. Get the update from Crucial here.

Find was stopped in progress in VS

There has been a bug in Visual Studio since the 90s where you are searching in files, but the find operation stops very quickly after starting (and hence gives no results). The output window shows ‘Find was stopped in progress’. This is caused by pressing Ctrl+ScrollLock (usually done inadvertently when Ctrl+Break). The solution is to press Ctrl+ScrollLock again, then you should be able to ‘Find in Files’ again.
