Good God, I have always hated the default code formatting of visual studio 2005. It drives me up the wall. For some reason I could never figure out how to change it. Now due to the grace of God and Jebus I have discovered the light. Some dude's blog You go dude, I'm finally glad to be able to get rid of that shitty auto formatting and get my code to look right. Some guys like compact code, I prefer more whitespace for ease of reading. So hopefully I can pass this information on to other people who are looking for it.
