Control Spy

Control Spy is a neat little tool to help you see how Windows controls work. You can see styles, send messages, etc.
Control Spy is a tool that helps developers understand common controls: how to apply styles to them, and how they respond to messages and notifications. Using Control Spy, you can immediately see how different styles affect the behavior and appearance of each control, and also how you can change the state of each control by sending messages.

Wedbush fights back against FINRA

About time.
On August 18, Finra, through its Department of Market Regulation and Department of Enforcement, filed a complaint against Wedbush Securities alleging deficiencies in its policies, procedures and controls related to its market access operations from January 2008 until August 2013. In a counterstrike against the equity market regulator, Wedbush said that it believes that its risk management controls and supervisory procedures in the area of market access were reasonably designed to achieve compliance with evolving regulatory requirements, and that they were consistent with the rules and guidance provided by FINRA.
Why bother having laws, when we can have regulations that no one understands, including the regulators themselves?
