There's two handy Visual Studio features that you can't customise through the Tools -> Options settings.
This allows you to have a little dotted line that reminds you that your code is getting too long:
Under [HKEY_CURRENT_USER]\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\Text Editor create a string value called Guides, and put a colour and the column position(s) that you want guides to appear at (e.g. Guides = RGB(128,0,0) 79, 119)
MRU Tab Ordering
Keep your most recent files at the left of your tab channel, rather than ordering them in the order that the files were opened in:
Under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0 key, you can create a DWORD UseMRUDocOrdering = 1.
