I created the above graphic to announce the updated Google AdWords API v201206 to my company. Other engineers might find it handy for their own release notes.

Not sure what's so special about December 30 2037. But when you create an campaign in Google Ad Words, that is the default end date.
I guess they are planning on making some big change to Google AdWords 25 years from now!

Basic Instruction on Adding Code Snippets to Microsoft Visual Studio. This is useful when you find yourself typing the same commands over and over again. By adding your own Snippets you can significantly increase your productivity.
Create a directory to store your Snippets. I used C:/Snippets, but you can use what ever directory you want.
That's it! Now anything with a .snippet you create in your directory will appear in Visual Studio!

Recently I needed to use date formatting in some Bash scripts that I was writing. I was a little surprise on how hard it was to find how to add date and assign it to a variable.
Below are a couple of examples that I created to help others who are encountering the same issue. Here are a couple of Bash scripts and how to assign a date and manipulate the date too.
Note: There is a slight difference in date formatting between BSD and GNU. (OS X users take note on the BSD formatting.)
todaydate=$(date +"%B %d, %Y"")
yesterday=$(date -v -1d +"%B %d, %Y")
lastmonth=$(date -v -1m +"%B %d, %Y")
tomorrow=$(date -v +1d +"%B %d, %Y")
lastyear=$(date -v -1y +"%B %d, %Y")
ninetydaygoals=$(date -v +90d +"%B %d, %Y")
echo "Yesterday was $yesterday"
yesterday=$(date --date="-1 day" +"%B %d, %Y")
lastmonth=$(date --date="-1 month" +"%B %d, %Y"")
tomorrow=$(date --date="+1 day" +"%B %d, %Y"")
lastyear==$(date --date="-1 year" +"%B %d, %Y"")
ninetydaygoals=$(date --date="+90 day" +"%B %d, %Y"")
echo "Yesterday was $yesterday"

Apparently if you install the free jZip application you also get to install the Searchqu Toolbar for Firefox. I don't read everything during the installation, but I am sure if it mention the toolbar I wouldn't have opt for that.
To disable the toolbar, since it doesn't appear to offer any value, you simple select the Firefox Add-ons and then disable the Searchqu Toolbar, this will probably be the last item in you list.
Your best bet would be to remove the application completely. However, I find that disabling it is better since the 'jZip' application will think that its still there and work normally. Who knows if the application checks to see if the toolbar is install, I didn't even know it was going to install the application.
Nice that when doing a Google search on SearchQu, that everything that shows up on the first page is how to get rid of the application, not what why you should keep it.
