I've recently been updating our series on dithering to include ordered dithering. However, in order to fully demonstrate this I also updated the sample to include basic color quantizing with a fixed palette.
While color reduction and dithering are related, I didn't want to cover both topics in a single blog post, therefore this post covers finding the nearest color via Euclidean distance.
StartSSL code signing certificates are crippled and your binaries no longer trusted once they have expired, even if they have been counter signed. Not to mention the other trust issues that StartSSL are experiencing.

One of the nice things about the Visual Studio WinForms designers are the guidelines it draws onto design surfaces, aiding you in perfectly positioning your controls. These guidelines are known internally as snap lines, and by default each visual component inheriting from
Control gets four of these, representing the values of the control's
Margin property. However, this default designer doesn't include an implementation for the
BaseLine snap line, which is used to align controls via their contained text. This article shows how to create a custom designer to allow your controls to easily include this alignment option.
In several of my applications, I need to be able to line up text, be it blocks of text using different fonts, or text containers of differing heights.
