A tip for anybody who wants to see where the column end is: Guidelines in VS[^]

I have red guidelines at columns 80 and 120. I try to stick to my self-imposed 120 column limit, but not at any cost.

Cheers,
Vıkram.

I've never ever worked anywhere where there has not been someone who given the choice I would not work with again. It's a job, you do your work, put up with the people you don't like, accept there are probably people there that don't like you a lot, and look forward to the weekends.
