Here's something backwards that my oldest son just showed me.
Type in 'google' backwards; that would be elgoog.
Click on the first item returned - elgoog.
Everything google is backwards. Even the search results.
Hmmm... I wonder if it's backwards in Australia too?
There is a fix when you've lost your designer.vb file(s). I ran across this problem recently when copying some VS2008 code into a VS2005 Project. I failed to copy the designer.vb files and was left with no intellisense available - a life stopper!
Here's the fix. Right click on your project file and choose 'Convert To Web Application'. This will regenerate all those necessary designer files.
