    Talking The MSVC "Tip of the Day"

    Every time I run MSVC6 I get that little "tip of the day" sign. Do you guys turn that off, or just ignore it? One time it actually said "This is the last tip." And then just started all over from the beginning I guess :P. One of the other times it said something intresting, like "Did you know Microsoft Visual C++ 6 was made using Microsoft Visual C++ ?". Pretty cool.

    Same, except the first time I run it, I just click "Next Tip" or whatever and read them all right there. Then promptly turn them off.
