  • Getting NDepend to cope with too many DataSet assemblies

    Previously I was all happy and impressed by&nbsp;the performance and stability of NDepend v3.0. I still am, but alas, the fact remains that no matter how well you design and build something, there will always be something much more horrid to make your work crumble to pieces. When I started moving onto the larger deployments in the enterprise - ...

  • How to tell what CPU platform .NET assemblies target

    I had previously ranted about the lack of information and education concerning the 32-bit-to-64-bit development transition, and to this day still seems to remain a&nbsp;significant worry from what I observe of the developer community. In recent activity to look up 64-bit development issues, I came across Arthur C Clarke's blog entry ...

  • Where does Windows Vista store Internet Explorer cookies?

    Let me cut to the chase: it is not somewhere in C:\Users\myname\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files The answer lies in the path defined in Registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders Which in my case referred to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies, ...

  • Now this is what a REAL horoscope should tell Aries use guns to describe philosophical concepts. The Taurus is a strange bird because he or she holds grudges about things that never actually happened. Geminis are always on some sort of medication. This medication is not always legal. So much for buying the world a Coke - they ...

  • Making amends with your customer

    Many of you knew about the techsupport fiasco with my personal laptop last year; my well-working XPS (other than the annoying touchpad) was essentially converted to a laser-hot finger burner device.&nbsp;After so many on-site and off-site attempts,&nbsp;Dell gave up and waved the white flag. As compensation they offered a one-to-one replacement ...

  • Uninstall .NET Framework 4.0 Beta 1 - the self-mutilating way

    I know&nbsp;I'm late to the game, but the virtual machine that was running my copy of .NET Framework 4.0 Beta 1 was ''locked down'' for several months because my previous hosting laptop got brutalised by Dell technicians last year. It was only recently did I manage to revive the virtual machine to carry out a complete uninstall of Beta 1 to make ...

  • Here's why Thai advertisements are so fantastic

    If there&nbsp;can be only&nbsp;one thing I remember about Thailand, it is the incredible talent of their TV marketing agencies. With advertisements like these, who needs to flip channels during&nbsp;commercial breaks?&nbsp;Creative, hilarious, downright enjoyable. They spare viewers the irritation and annoyance that Singapore ...

  • Re: Punched in the eyes

    It's funny. As a PC enthusiast (well, at least i once was) I have put my computers through the decades a barrage of component upgrades; few things come close to bringing a satifactory glee to my face like witnessing the new hardware component bringing in new levels of performance or functionality to my computing. But one type of upgrade I have ...

  • Punched in the eyes

    Hi, I am Aaron. (Hello Aaron) I am a repeated victim of dismal hardware failure, too. I cannot get enough of it. Remember the desktop workstation DIABLO with the upgraded video card to provide two DVI outputs? I thought I was reaching a state of equilibrium with its setup and could finally just use it in peace. Heck i could even stand-by and ...

  • What is svchost.exe hosting?

    Has it ever bugged you? That there are a variety of background Windows services running in your Windows XP or Vista system, and you cannot readily identify the process that is running that service? Typically, system level services are encapsulated in svchost.exe host processes. Multiple services can even be grouped in a single svchost.exe. But by ...

  • Securing lens cap while phototaking

    Right from the start of picking up photography this year, I encountered the age old problem of where the ideal location would be to secure the lens cap. Most people seem fairly happy to keep it in their pockets, but I am uneasy about the amount of lint and dust picked up with each stay in my pockets. Or maybe i should buy a better washing machine. ...

  • Facing the elements require epic armour

    Note to self When journeying into harsh environments of nature, where dust, dirt, pollens, web, leaf flakes, wandering viral spores,&nbsp;do not bring a camera body that does not have weather sealing. When dripping a lot of sweat, keep camera by the side of body instead of hanging off neck directly in front. When undergoing strenuous ...

  • The best customers are those who _know_ how to counter-mock you

    By now the Internet is more or less familiar with the infamous scam known as Denon's US$500 Ethernet cables. This company unabashedly takes full advantage of audiophiles' warped perception about the quality of wire cables and attempts to sell the same idea about digital data transmission. I hope their marketing strategy is reaping in the profits ...

  • XPS = Xtreme Painful Service

    When I purchased&nbsp;the low-end Dell Inspiron 1501 in the mid of 2007, my intention was to make it&nbsp;my mobile platform for&nbsp;at least&nbsp;two years. For the pricing back then, it was a steal, despite sporting only average hardware. I tried to increase its 733tn3$$ by pasting a Razer sticker, but it failed to boost the speed up any ...

  • Re: Tooth Age technology

    Third time's the charm, they say. So now that I have exchanged with the service centre yet another unit, not only do I still get abysmal reception, I get to use a colour that is not my original preference. It's official. The Clip Radio&nbsp;is a punishment device for you to wrap as a gift to any person you dislike. Go on, for $69, you can ...

  • Re: Multiple app.config files for deploying to different environments

    Anonymous: 2. BUT, as soon as I press 'F11' to 'Debug/Step Into', the correct config is overwritten by the contents of app.config. Interesting observation. I did not encounter this because when stepping through code and debugging on my workstation, that is certainly not the UAT or production environment. My development workstation would ...
