Everyone should be good at something

Anyone who's worked with me in recent years knows how much I love deleting code. It could be removing something that's obsolete or refactoring to reduce duplication. Or maybe the requirements change mid-project. Needless to say, some question whether my SLOC (source lines of code) output is positive or negative.

Regardless, I stumbled upon a shortcut in VisualStudio (Shift + Del) that deletes the entire line where the cursor is located. No more selecting the whole line and then pressing Delete. I've become a code-deletion ninja!
