It's my second personal/social post in this technical blog. I am participationg in Russian Bard Club "Southern Cross" . I've recently noticed that the club's web site is not shown in Google. Even if it is out-of-date and not complete, it's better to have it searchable, because at least some info can be interesting. I hope that this link will help Google to crawl it ...
I find my GWB blog at the first link of Google for the key word with my name "Mohammad Ashraful Alam". There might be several thousands "Mohammad Ashraful Alam" in this world, but Google knows me at first. Not only in the web search, Google picks two of my pictures in the Google image search as well as, for the same key word. The same thing for web search happens in Yahoo! and MSN search as well as. What I am guessing is, search engines are putting higher priority for the bloggers. Hah! So finding ...
ok, so I still haven't figured out the whole combobox thing, but the drop downs are working fine, and so that's no big deal. The system is working, so I was shifted to different projects. I am working on all these special reports, and now they said HEY we want to make this new website, so can you make it. We want all this stuff and want it in 2 weeks. WOHOO, so I'm a webmaster now. It's a crazy corporate world, but I LOVE the high stress, and the success of completing something with impossible deadlines, ...

I just read Kathy Sierra's latest post Why does engineering/math/science education in the US suck? and once again find myself fired up about teaching again. This fire was first lit when I read Paul Grahm's Hackers and Painters. Since then I have been trying to figure out how I can share the things that I think are so important. Now that I am fired up again I find myself thinking "What is my next action?" For the longest time, I thought it was to go and get my Masters or PhD in Computer Science, however ...
I've been giving Google Reader a spin and I'm finding it very easy to get used to reading my RSS feeds through it. They've done an excellent job with the UI, as usual.But then I needed to find an old blog entry from Oren Eini's blog (a book recommendation for a fantasy trilogy of all things) and I've discovered that Google Reader is missing something very important. Something that Google is almost synonymous with - a search box.What and odd surprise - there is no search feature (that I could find) ...

Problem I have exposed an orchestration as a web service using the WSE 2 web service publishing wizard. I am wanting to use kerberos to sign and encrypt the message, however i have turned off the server policy as i dont want to force it as a requirement until i can get it to work. When i call the web service as intended with a kerberos token signing and encrypting the message i get the following error: System.Web.Services.Protoco... System.Web.Services.Protoco... ...
http://googleblog.blogspot.... Usage: 'Google' as verb referring to searching for information via any conduit other than Google.Example: "I googled him on Yahoo and he seems pretty interesting."Our lawyers say: Bad. Very, very bad. You can only "Google" on the Google search engine. If you absolutely must use one of our competitors, please feel free to "search" on Yahoo or any other search engine ...
Hey guys it a great news for developers like me, who can now search for a desired code from Google! As per Google....... " Google Code Search helps you find function definitions and sample code by giving you one place to search publicly accessible source code hosted on the Internet. With Google Code Search, you can: Use regular expressions to search more precisely Restrict your search by language, license or filename View the source file with links back to the entire package and the ebpage where ...
Google Code Search There is yet another brand new service from Google named as Google Code Search. This service designed to make it easier for computer programmers to find bits of code online. Google Code Search will make it easier for software developers to find programming code directly, without having to search forums, most of which are open source code.http://www.google.com/... ...
This review is about the book ASP.NET 2.0 MVP Hacks and Tips. Published by Wiley Publishing, Inc on end May 2006. 7 MVP's decided to put their knowledge together and create this book. The MVP's are: David Yack, Joe Mayo, Scott Hanselman, Fredrik Normén, Dan Wahlin, J. Ambrose Little, Jonathan D. Goodyear. If you are a ASP.NET developer you have propably already heard of these guys and if you haven't you need to take your work more seriously.This book is for experienced ASP.NET ...
I was trying to tweak my blog a bit yesterday, so I did some research on "Custom CSS Selectors". I didn't figure out how to do what I wanted to do (still researching), but I did figure out how to do a number of different things. A lot of the info I used, I got from this post by Josh Ledgard. I had to modify his directions a bit to add search to my blog, but it's pretty close. I changed my subtitle to the following: .NET Data Practices<div id="s">Blog Search<br><input class="BS" type="text" ...
The last few days I've been playing around with Google docs. Its pretty neat. Its google's take on writely and irows both rolled into one. Its not bad, it also supports exporting the spreadhseet/document to popular document formats (e.g. xls, doc, pdf etc). tags: Google, Goolge Docs Cross-posted from tariqayad.com ...
Microsoft's foray into the cross-platform realm of Web functionality development is now official. Today, the company released Beta 1 of what it now calls ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 - essentially its Web development toolkit for Asynchronous JavaScript. Betanews states: The Microsoft's goal at this point is to develop a series of small libraries that a browser can load into memory as necessary -- rather than loading one huge library -- that will give Web developers the framework for implementing on-page controls. ...
Joab Jackson published an article in National Geographic that give a very basic introduction of GeoRSS and a couple examples of it's use. One of the examples was Where's Tim!! GeoRSS is a way to add geographic information to an RSS feed. Most generically, it is used to add a latitude / longitude point to an item. To add GeoRSS to your existing feed, add the namespace to your rss element like this: rss version="2.0" xmlns:georss="http://www.ge... xmlns:gml="http://www.openg... ...
Yes, I'm about to say something good about Google. Don't faint. There's an article on BusinessWeek about how Marissa Mayer, VP of Search Products at Google runs her meetings. This is extremely valuable advice. I've been to too many meetings over my career that have been essentially failures, because they didn't follow these simple rules. Her main points? Set a Firm Agenda Assign a Note Taker Carve Out Micro-Meetings Hold Office Hours Discourage Politics, Use Data Stick To The Clock As they say, read ...
I've tried to create Enterprise Library Exception Handling Policy similar to described in Take Exception To Critical Errors With Custom Application Blocks , but I wanted to use standard Logging Exception Handler.However the LogCategory combo-box was empty and I wasn't able even save the configuration file due to error:"the value for LogCategory can not be null".It wasn't obvious for me that I have to create “Category source“ under “Logging Application Block“ first.It is not ...
I wanted to jump in on this discussion, mainly because I am very passionate about these Web 2.0 apps. Honestly, I don't care if they are aptly named "Web 2.0", or Web 3.0 or Webbies or what ever. What I do care about is they are accessible from pretty much anywhere I can get an Internet connection. As I posted here, I'm really open to these applications. As stated in Chris's post (here), not everyone needs every feature of a wordprocessor like Microsoft Word. In fact, I don't even need all the features ...
Tom Hollander doesn't think so. Admittedly, Tom is part of the p&p group at Microsoft, so his opinion might be biased. Every couple of years, the tech media giants get together to hold a secret meeting. According to my sources, it takes place in a cave, deep underground, somewhere just east of Wagga Wagga. The main order of business is to choose the next technology that will be the death of Microsoft... this time for certain. Past appointees, in chronological order, include Netscape, Java, Linux ...
Google announced that you can now view Google Homepage Gadgets on any website. Earlier this year, we released a gadget that is basically a mini Where's Tim. You can still add this gadget to your Google Homepage. But now, thanks to Google, you can also now view this gadget on any website. I have placed it on my blog, just under the GWB ads. The gadget works just like Where's Tim. It updates automatically every 15 seconds, and the icon turns green when I am moving and red when I am stationary ...
Google Labs has come out with a new means to find source code online. Google Code Search is a feature that returns hits from within posted source code. It did not take long for me to ignore the main page and set the advanced search page as my shortcut. So far, it seems heavily weighted towards Java (not surprising), with less available from C-based sites. The results layout also needs more differentiation between each separate result -- things blend together too much. More to follow as I use the ...
I have always been fascinated by the logical puzzles which require you to invoke your brain and use the logical half of it and get a solution off it... where you have aptitude, not just the math solving skills... where you can develop ways how to approach a problem...Mostly I have seen such puzzles being asked in Microsoft interviews and Google interviews to test logical / creative skills of the candidate... one I myself took for Infosys technologies in India... I would encourage guys to add to the ...
Here are two assembly signing gotchas I ran into today: 1. I had two assemblies, A and B, and A had an [InternalsVisibleTo(”... attribute (my concrete scenario, A is the “main” assembly and B a unit tests assembly). Everything is peachy! Then I go and sign them and compile: boom! Compilation fails with the following error message: “Friend assembly reference 'B' is invalid. Strong-name signed assemblies must specify a public key in their InternalsVisibleTo declarations” ...
arghh ... that is what I said when one of my senior ask me to work on system.reflection and the moment when I google this query I start crying becuase there is not much help available on internet. so I got disappointed but blieve me reflection is not that difficult really. Please check the new artcile of asp.net 2.0 category for more information about System.Reflection check the followig link http://geekswithblogs.net/a... cheers. ...
I've been working exclusively alone on a project for a while and have as much liberty as any developer could hope for. I'm a blessed man. Nonetheless, I have tried to kind of "pretend" like I am working in a team environment that has regimented deadlines. This is mostly due to integrity and partly due to prevention for laziness...how easy is it to constantly be researching solutions without implementing them? There was a necessary period of growth in skill sets that had to occur and while I certainly ...
I've posted an article that shows how to create an Google Earth KML file by writing to the response stream. The code is for this page: http://timhibbard.com/demo/... That page creates a KML file that show Memorial Stadium in Google Earth. The code also shows how to use query strings to create a KML file for any location like this page: http://www.timhibbard.com/d... Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. Read the article ...
AJAXThough it’s simply a combination of relatively mature technologies, AJAX, or Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, is emerging as a popular industry solution that allows developers to combine existing web technologies to create highly interactive and responsive web interfaces. AJAX as a technology has been around for quite some time, it is the name that is new. Microsoft’s Outlook Web Access is a good example of the technology in use, before it had a name. The name AJAX was coined by Adaptive ...
On recommendation from Jeff, I'm trying out NewsGator. After 12 hours of use, this is what I think: Love the mobile app. The interface is pretty and smart. It marks my items read on the server side, so I don't read posts twice. It also allows me to "clip" a feed, so that I can look at it later from the computer. The app is a bit buggy though and often just exits. The NewsGator Online is ok. Nothing special except that I can see how many people subscribe to a particular feed. It's a little slow, but ...
So I just realized that keeping a simple password on my AIM account, which I rarely use, is a bad thing, since someone put a new icon on my profile...8 tries at 3 personal questions later, password was secure. While I was there, on AIM Today, I decided to check out what is going on with the company that I have despised for years. I click on email and logged in, didn't know I even had an email account with my screen name. I started pocking around - “great built-in AJAX calendar there” ...
Geo-Names has released a utility that will scan an RSS feed for geographical content and spit out a GeoRSS feed. So you can grab the RSS feed for this blog and convert it to GeoRSS. Since Where's Tim understands GeoRSS, you can view the geographical data of my feed in relation to my current location here. You can also use the same utility to spit out KML and view the data in Google Earth ...
I have had trouble in the past when installing the Exchange System Manager (ESM) on my laptop so I can modify email information about a user in Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC). I get conflicts with Outlook (some shared or overwritten DLLs I imagine) or in the case of Outlook 2007 Beta 2, outright consistent crashes. I found this article by Jim McBee on how to copy just the needed DLLs from an Exchange server to the workstation in question. The page isn't available on his site for some ...
A friend of mine pointed me to this today and I got a kick out of it. Having a bad day behind the keyboard? Watch this and realize it could be worse. :-) EDIT: It looks like Google Video killed this one. You can see it on YouTube here. Weird Al- White and Nerdy ...
I've long been a fan of the Small Form Factor PC, and it's been interesting to note the offerings from AOpen that bring the PC every closer to the benchmark set by the Apple Mini. I was glancing through some snippets from Engadget yesterday and came up with this little gem, it's not cheap at close to £500 without the OS, but it does appear that that includes 512Mb, an 80Gb HDD and an Intel®Core™2 Duo processor T5500. Super Mini So for the size it certainly sounds like the business? ...
Since I originally posted this in July, I've gotten absolutely nowhere with Microsoft. I have, however, had a couple hundred google searches for things like “IE7 beta process.start error“. Since then my bug was closed, someone else reopened it, and I've found another similar bug where the IE7 beta and RC take over shell execute and deny programs from being launched. Luckily for me, our workaround was to simply not use the shell (ShellExecute=false) but that definitely isn't an option ...
A colleague asked me what blogs I read, and I thought it would be interesting to blog about that ;-) My main activities in programming in the moment are .NET, especially ASP.NET, and WPF. ASP.NET also includes a lot of JavaScript programming, which was always one of my favourite subjects anyway. About JavaScript, I don't read blogs, but I can recommend the newsgroup comp.lang.javascript. I learned most of my JavaScript there over the years, and though the tone is sometimes passionate over what may ...
Over the last few weeks I’ve been on leave enjoying a much deserved rest if I do say so myself. This year the wife and I decided to not get on a plane and head for foreign climbs purely because neither of us fancied facing the new airport security restrictions and the weather here has been amazingly good so why not have a holiday at home in the UK? I ask you, where is the fun in not being able to take 100 weight of books, booze, food and that cool gadget you’ve just brought from Dixon ...

I was looking for a nice diagram I could print showing the ASP.NET Page Life Cycle and I found on Google a diagram drawn by Léon Andrianarivony:

My ASP.NET application calls web services( including Google Web API) and it is a requirement to access it through Proxy Server that requires Authentication. It works correctly with Microsoft ISA server (see my post Set defaultProxy configuration Element for Proxy Server) . But it didn't work with Squid proxy server Authentication. When I specified useDefaultCredentials=true, the WebException returned : “HTTP status 417: Unknown“.After some investigation I found that 417 is actually Expectation failed ...
A couple of days ago I was asked if there was any way by which I could overload a method to "return" more than one type. If I was in a class room, or I was teaching a programming class (I've done that for some part of my life :)) my instant answer would have been "No." And then I would have proceeded to explain why the whole idea was not valid in the Object Orientation world. However, this question was not coming from a high school student. In all probabilities it was coming based on a practical ...
Yesterday, I noticed a blog post on Google strategy. The main point is something like “What the hell is Google gonna do with us?”. Well, I couldn't agree more! I've been a little bit worried about some certain Google products, and (most importantly) developer tools. The privacy concerns weren't my top fear (I use Gmail as my primary and only personal email for years now). The “throw the shit out at the face of Microsoft” strategy of course doesn't quite suit me, and most of ...

This is something I have to google everytime, so it's about time to have a link for it:

ASP .NET videos

Hope the link doesn't change. If it does though, this one might work.

I was a bit saddened by the announcement last week that Pluto was no longer considered a planet. It's something I had heard about for a while and knew would probably happen, but still I'll miss the little guy. I never user a mnemonic to remember the names of the planets but zefrank suggests a new one... Um, yeah. Not so safe for the kids... Maybe we should have a contest for a new, elementary school friendly, one. The only mnemonic I ever really used was BB Roy Went to Great Britain Via west Germany. ...
I've been using the Colibri tool to open my apps and control panels for some time. A little summary of the tool is here with screenshots. Really, it's so simple there isn't much to say other than why you may want to consider it if you use Google Desktop instead of the silly QUickLaunch icons next to the "Start" menu. With a quick Ctl+Space (or whatever you want it to be) and just three keys I open whatever application I want. Same thing if I want to change my display setting (Ctl+Space+Dis) and so ...
It's interesting to note,that since I've started this blog more than a year ago,it's my first personal post. I've noticed, that my photo albums on Webshots are not picked up by the Google Images. So I will provide links here and (hopefully) Google indexer will add them.(some comments are in Russian) http://community.webshots.c... http://community.webshots.c... http://community.webshots.c... http://picasaweb.google.com... ...
How good is your search engine? Considering switching from Google to Live? First take the "lose the address bar challenge." Here is my challenge to all of you, which I plan on starting myself, right now! Stop using the address bar in your browser toolbars and only get where you need to go using your existing links and search engine. Why? This is the best way to test out the search engine that is right for you. How many times do you get stopped and have to resort back to the URL? As many of us on ...
Even after teaching for more than 25 years, I'm still looking for ways to engage my students in their learning. Google has a new service where you can search for videos online. There are several videos they I can use with my students that will be helpful to their learning. I started to look at the videos for programming and there are some interesting videos from a developer at Smalltalk talking about OOP to a video put together at a high school programming competition that was interesting as well. ...
In my job, I work with many emerging and recently emerged software technologies from many vendors. It is often difficult to resolve issues with these products as there isn't a large body of knowledge available. What I've been found incresingly over the last year or so is that most of the documentation and certainly support is coming through blog entries. I can appreciate that Q&A and out of the ordinary things that don't make traditional support documentation is perhaps best communicated through ...
Sprint SMS sucked this past weekend, but as PCSIntel reports, there is a good reason. Sprint has been working on a new system that will allow you to view sent and received SMS as well as compose messages directly from your My PCS web page. It would be really cool if they syndicated my messages in RSS so I could plug them into my Google Desktop and search against them ...
