comment Logging errors caused by exceptions deep in the application
@BillMichell: When things are done the way I describe, you still end up having all the same information: it's just associated with a wrapping exception, which groups all the related information together in a nice stack trace. Debug/trace logs are a good idea in general, but those are usually inappropriate logging levels when logging exceptions. If an error happens, you want as much information as possible about what was happening, even (and especially) in a production environment.

comment Logging errors caused by exceptions deep in the application
@BillMichell: While the log messages will be less obtrusive at lower levels, I'd still argue that they only add needless complexity in most cases. I would only log information about exceptions that get handled and aren't re-thrown.

comment Fastest way to open a file in Visual Studio knowing only its name
@Kjellski: I agree. I up-voted the other answers, but felt this could also be a valid answer that other people might be interested in. Anyway, to improve the answer quality, I just updated it with information about Visual Studio 2012.

@MarcB: Except that the patterns for programming a Singleton don't really work for what the OP asked for.
