  • remote session was disconnected because there are no terminal server client access licenses available

    Encountering this remote desktop disconnectivity one time too many has annoyed me enough to make a note once and for all so I don't keep forgetting how this pesky issues is dealt with. Delete the following registry key and restart RDC HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\MSLICENSING

  • Proof that spam business model does not work

    Back when the dot-com bubble burst, folks began to realise the insanity of their ways with pumping money into ludicrous Internet ideas, and steadily went back to traditional brick-and-motar means. I guess the email-spamming bubble has burst too.

  • Re: Tooth Age technology

    In opting to return my bluetooth unit back to the shop for them to send off to the service centre for checking, I retrograded back to prehistoric cable ways for audio transmission. For like close to a month. When it was finally ready for collection, I was annoyed they had not thoroughly tested the device and returned it status quo. I guess they ...

  • Signs your colleague may not be a good developer #7

    Entire logic and workflow of the program takes place within the constructor of a class. Job done upon instantiation! Now who does not want that?

    Highly adept at using code Regions, totally forgotten how to use different classes and methods/functions. Enough said.

  • Servicing earphone audio jacks

    Many know me to be a snobbish circumaural headphones bigot, preferring to lug the excess weight and bulk of space-helmet-looking headphones, turntables and all, to satisfy my needs for portable music. I do not compromise on my standards for noise protection, comfort, and ergonomic movement. That means a warehouse of earphones that came stock with ...

  • Visual Studio .NET 2003 web projects: Unable to retrieve folder information from the server

    Just the other day I was attempting to relook at an old web project stuck in ASP.NET 1.1 and Visual Studio .NET 2003. Have retrieved the source files from my Subversion repository into a separate Windows&nbsp;XP machine, I hit an error attempting to open up the web project. Unable to retrieve folder information from the server I looked around ...

  • I still cannot understand the Japanese

    After all these years, the Japanese train of thought continues to remain one of explicable bizzare imagination. Truly beyond my capacity.

  • Tooth Age technology

    This story actually spans a long time. Like, ever since Bluetooth technology became available for widespread consumerism. I never understood&nbsp;what's with all this rage over&nbsp;Bluetooth.&nbsp;My past experiences nearly every bluetooth device just about proved that it is an extremely unreliable wireless technology; connectivity and pairing ...

    Referring to the wildly imaginary, extravagant, unrealistic visions and claims made by, y'know, those who have their heads in the clouds, never&nbsp;witnessing how Earth at ground level operates. (e.g. Executives)

  • Why can't my computer sleep or hibernate?

    It has been a long time in coming. For more than two years of using this cursed desktop PC, one of the most expensive problems I have had to live with was its inability to&nbsp;sleep or hibernate. Each time I got Windows to initiate the energy-conversation sequence, it would relinquish control to the hardware to shut down, only to have the ...

  • Review: Inside the Microsoft Build Engine: Using MSBuild and Team Foundation Build

    When the Microsoft Developer Division sat down to consider the future of .NET development from v2.0 onwards, they recognised the build process in Visual Studio .NET was primitive in its facilities. It had to be re-architected to provide a much more flexible and extensible mechanism. Thus the re-engineering endeavour that brought us MSBuild. ...

  • Disable Firefox Downloads Complete notifier

    Hard pop-up dialog boxes and bubbles are so last-millennium. Smooth slide-out notifier panes are all the rage nowadays. If your GUI application does not animate something, it sucks. So much so that Firefox also implements sliding animation to notify users when their downloads are complete. Not too big a deal, does not suck up too much processor ...

  • On-screen keyboard: get out of my face

    For some reason, one of my laptop's been throwing up Windows Vista's On-screen keyboard every time I logon to a desktop session. Typing with a mouse on my laptop sure is as fun and necessary as using a magnifying glass to burn my statements on paper instead of using a regular pen. I sure do not require this functionality, and the On-screen ...

  • Re: High-speed disks, with high-speed failures!

    icelava:One thing certain is the Western Digital Raptor WD74 disk is causing all these pain. This expensive 10,000rpm model I specifically selected to provide my system&nbsp;with speedy spins is ironically weighing me flat on my face with performance lockdowns. So not only does it spin fast, its time-to-failure is pretty fast too. And what do we ...

  • Politically Correct: YOU ARE SO PLAIN WRONG, IDIOT

    There are many ways to come into disagreement. For some reason, we humans are rarely able to accept that notion of others outright rejecting our ideas and directly claiming we are wrong. How can this possibly happen? I am always right! ;-) More so to the manner and tone in which we challenge, rather than the technical challenge itself. There is ...

  • Re: Find Error :Authorization Manager with ADAM: 0x80070002

    Rohit, when you run the web application from the file system, I assume that is via Cassini the Visual Studio development web server. When you develop as an administrator (which is almost always the case), your web application will run with all your administrator privileges. When you set it to run as a proper IIS web application you must grant ...
