    Weird question, but, anyone have a copy of the actual .ico that gets added to forms if you don't add your own? The one that looks like this? I've Google'd, Resource Hacked, searched my pc's, everything, and for the life of me, can't just find the icon itself, lol.

    How many timers is too many?

    Just curious, is it a good coding practice to keep timers in a project to a minimum, or does it not really matter? I've always tried to use as few as possible, but wondering if I really even need to be too concerned with it?

    I'd like, in my program, to be able to capture the URL being shown in the location bar / URL bar. It's fine to just get the currently focused one if they have multiple tabs open, or just a list of all if multiple tabs are open. Does anyone know how to do this? :confused: Thanks!
