Tab Complete in Windows

Another one of those things that I can never remember off the top of my head so find myself constantly looking it up whenever I get access to a new machine.

I figure it may as well be my own site that I get the info from :-)

To switch on 'Tab Complete' in Windows command line change the following registry keys to '09':
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor\CompletionChar
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor\PathCompletionChar

Saw a cracking Haiku on a t-shirt the other day:

Haiku are easy
But sometimes they don't make sense

Then my mind started dwelling on it:

Got the release out
But the testing's not finished
It's falling over


Database is slow
Just can't see what's wrong with it
Set autotrace on


A quick refactor
Turns into a bigger job
Should have unit tests
