  • Error 112 Unknown server tag 'asp:ScriptManager' 'asp:UpdatePanel' on Windows 7

    Ah, the joys of running legacy code on a modern computing environment. Roughly every three years we get laptop refreshes, which may sound just about right from hardware progression timelines. The natural and unavoidable side effect of that is operating system is clean again. Meaning, we lose all those years of custom software installations and ...

  • SharePoint 2010: Application Server job failed for service instance Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance

    In these present weeks I am pretty caught up trying to ramp up my knowledge on SharePoint 2010 as much as possible. To get started,&nbsp;I obtained a VirtualBox virtual server from my colleague that he had already prepared with the basic installation bits. As time went by, I met a problem with my copy that he had not encounter on his: The Search ...

  • Connecting to Windows 7 Administrative shares

    What is a productive activity to spend across the New year weekend? Upgrade the laptop from x86 Windows 7 to x64 of course! No self-respecting geek would waste time on meaningless actions like popping champange at parties or countdown just to watch silly fireworks. No way. Uh-uh. Just saying. And so I did, finally acting on the plan I've been ...

  • Personal quote: Age

    The only reason why people get offended by being referred as old is because they're not getting wiser with age. Seriously. People. What's really up with you? What, just what, is the exact thing that upsets you so much when somebody innocently / unintentionally / inadvertently / even deliberately (circle appropriate choice) refers to your ...

  • Re: The Law of Equivalent Exchange

    I wrote too soon. Just when I was ''praising'' the other monitor for ''behaving'' itself the past two years. As though in attempt to mock me, this obedient monitor of mine fizzles out in a flash tonight. Looks like I'm going to get acquainted with the ViewSonic service staff even more. Is it mere coincidence? That this happened so quickly in a ...

    Ah yes. Life's been good after I got the monitor back from the service centre, ja? After waiting bloody weeks for the necessary components to be shipped all the way from Taiwan, ja? Well, I thought so too. I thought I could put this matter to rest. But no, some children are downright cheeky and mischievous.&nbsp; Those who do not understand the ...

  • Windows Live Messenger 2011 - Cannot login - Error code 80040154

    If there is a division that frequently gives Microsoft a bad reputation, i am sure the Online or Windows Live division or whatever new confounding bullshit marketing name they give it must be the Number One spot at the top chart of shame. I cannot begin understand how Windows Messenger, version after version after so many years, continue to strike ...

  • Personal quote: brand ownership

    I think it is time to open a new sub-series: quoting myself. Not that i think myself wise and great. But i make points that i do not wish to forget over time (yea i get senile pretty easily). Also, it will be fun to see how I change my perspective as I grow older. So without further ado, The brands and models of your tools don't make you cool. ...

    Now that .NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010 are in full swing, I think it's wise to open a page to jot down the useful add-ons that can enhance the developer experience.

  • The Law of Equivalent Exchange

    In Fullmetal Alchemist, the First Law of alchemy is that of Equivalent Exchange. It states that for something that is to be obtained, something else of equivalent value has to be given. This roughly keeps the balance of material existing in the world. So I have been operating dual monitors for a rather long time now. During that span of time, I ...

  • Note to photo printers: NOT ALL PHOTOS ARE 3:2

    The days of film used to be simple. Undeveloped 35mm film were practically always submitted as the same size and format - 3:2 aspect ratio. Photographers typically get back their printed photos before deciding whether to crop the composition. Cropping is part and parcel of photography and composition. Good photos leave out distracting or ...

    It would seem that with a new motherboard setup this year, i would finally be able to carry out my energy-saving plan by putting my desktop on Standby/Sleep when i'm done for the night. For most in this first quarter of the year, that did work out. Although sometimes my keyboard or mouse would oddly go missing and undetected no more how many times ...

  • Re: Getting NDepend to cope with too many DataSet assemblies

    Yes, this whole system (more than one app) is vastly bigger than the .NET Framework itself. And that is not news to be happy about by any measure.
