I do Technical Support for two businesses; a small ISP and a large University. On the side I run a Minecraft server, fiddle in various Linux distros, and program (mostly Ruby).

That is correct @KitGrose. I have not done Windows development in a few years, and the terminology slips away so easily.

No, I'm just blind. I will rewrite it to pertain directly to your situation.

comment Opening website external links in new window — published usability tests
@kentr Increasing usability directly increases revenue for most sites (assuming revenue is a goal). The only reason to prioritize keeping a page open when the user is not paying attention to it is if you have continuously refreshing ads on the page. Beware: keeping users on the site without them noticing reduces click-through rate on ads, directly affecting revenue in a different way.
