Is there a way to do the VB6 "App.TaskVisibl e = False" in VB.NET 2003?

I just has a quick look in the help files and it has this to

'In Visual Basic 6.0, the TaskVisible property of the App
object determined whether an application appeared in the
Windows task list (Windows 9x) or in the Task Manager
Applications tab (Windows 2000). The property was commonly
used to prevent a user from closing an application that was
intended to run as a background task; in most cases it was
used with applications that did not display a user

In Visual Basic .NET, there is no equivalent for the
TaskVisible property; however, you can create a Windows
Service or a Console Application that will not show up in
the task list.'

I just upgraded my Python install, and for the first time have True and False rather than 1 and 0. I was playing around at the command line to test how they work (for instance, "if 9:" and "if True:" both lead to the conditional being executed, but True == 9 -> False, that this would be true was not obvious to me -- "True is True" is True, while "9 is True" is false even though 9 evaluates to True.) Anyhow, in doing my tests, I...

I've been using Python for a while (4 years) so I feel like a moron writing this post because I think I should know the answer to this question: How do I make a dictionary which has distinct key-value pairs for 0, False, 1 and True. As I have learnt, 0 and False both hash to the same value (same for 1 and True). {0: 'abc'} # Am I the only one who thinks this is weird?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
