I make Windows videogames, and my latest engine doesn't let you select screen resolutions. I could change it so it does, but I'd rather make a small program that first lets you choose resolution (and set fullscreen and such), then launches the game app. But then wait (I said in my head), hasn't someone already created this launcher tool? Please help me out. Have they? [more inside]

OK, so I figured out, through lots of painful browsing of MSDN, how to make windows (partially) transparent, and also how to chroma-key windows. And it works great, but only in windows 2000. In windows XP it works only in certain cirumstances. Need windows programmer to help me... [more inside]
I have found programs that allow you to apply partial transparency to a window (in windows), but I'm looking for something a little different: chroma keyed transparency, like what is used in visual effects or on the weather report. [more inside]

Is it a good idea? [more inside]

After several years' break, I'm finally getting back into coding. My prior experience is with Linux, but I've since switched to Windows, and specifically .NET. I'm finding it a joy to use and play with, but going at it in a vacuum is hard. I'm familiar with gotdotnet and the invaluable MSDN, but where are the best, must-read daily sites for Windows developers?
Can some recommend an open-source version control system that will run locally? CVS seems a bit unwieldy, and other online reviews are geared toward large applications/development groups. Windows based if possible, but Linux is fine, too.
