*Moved to: Finding features: ConversationsHey, well the dentist was fun! And I have had time to install Office 2010 on my wife's Windows 7 laptop. I will try to put together some of the interesting features… This is nice. Much better than the Google Mail one and is starting to make more sense the more I use it. I am connecting to my Google Mail via IMAP and this example illustrates the feature nicely.Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...

This is very disappointing after all the hype!! Really all Google have done is put a new face on a simple Linux Distro.

It’s only purpose is to run Chrome..and not any other apps.

Now I know the clever thinkers believe this is the way to go – just the home market is not ready yet!!!!

Hi all , I recently was working with a client that implemented a telerik navigation control as a quicklaunch. They decided to split up all the sub-sites into their own site collection. They wanted to place quotas on subs sites, and if you don't know, you can only set quotas on site collections and not sub sites. This switch or splitting of sites posed some interesting problems. 1) Telerik Control now needed to be added to each sub site for navigation. The control specifics were added to a master ...

From SilverlightCream.com another all-submittal post: TextBox with automatically resizing of the fontsize Rob Houweling pulls off a resizing font in a textbox... this is very cool because last time I recompiled one of my legacy win32 articles, the native desktop code wouldn't do this without some finagling... thanks, Rob!Silverlight 3 Drag and Drop example Michael Washington took some time and got Tim Heuer's ...
I wanted to write a blog post to document how I do some day-to-day things. It helps me to keep track of my work habits, refine them and perhaps help some others who are looking for some solutions. My current rig is a Apple MacBook Pro 13” unibody. It has the 250Gb drive with 4Gb memory. I am running the latest version of OS X Leopard. I am really enjoying the 13” form factor. It is a little smaller and lighter than the previous 15” unibody which, to me, just felt heavy. I also don't notice the lost ...
Today the news about Google coming out with its own operating system "Chrome" is all over the Internet and I was wondering can they make an in-road into the OS field which is basically been dominated by Microsoft for decades. And the answer to that is possibly yes, if not as a full fledge OS for desktops and servers but for portable devices. There are 2 things that I hate most about windows OS first it takes forever to boot the OS, since I had SP1 installed on my Vista it takes more than 5 minutes ...
Scripting Perfmon We have a test team in India that I would like to run some load and performance testing. They have access to the required test server and load tools but limited experience using tools such as perfmon. I have previously only used Perfmon to take a real-time view of performance counters, or used the ui to configure logging to a data file for later evaluation. In this particular case I didn't have access to the test server to enable me to manually configure the logging, and I know ...
When I am using Google Docs, quite often I am copying the portion of code from Visual Studio or SQL Management Studio. but the text is reformatted to become messy. E.G. ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[CheckNotProcessed] @limit int = 10 AS declare @StartDate datetime declare @EndDate datetime declare @NotProcessedCount int is shown as ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[CheckNotProcessed] @limit int = 10 AS declare @StartDate datetime declare @EndDate datetime declare @NotProcessedCount int I've tried to manually insert ...
Ok, that was cool and somewhat easy. Sign up for Google Analytics add your GeeksWithBlogs (GWB) url (mine is "geekswithblogs.net/geekusc... You will be given a chunk of code. Log into your GWB page, select Options | Configure At the bottom of the page (underneath where it says "Static News/Announcement") paste that code in. Go to a couple of your pages, use some of the navigation. Go back to google analytics and click check status. You should be set. Oh, and if you haven't checked the thirty ...
Bing is a new search engine from Microsoft that has been released exactly one month ago. During this month it has created a lot of buzz. Bing is advertised by Microsoft to be a “Decision Engine” and it seems like there is a general feel, or at least enquiry, about bing constituting serious competition to Google search. After reading Scott Hanselman’s recent blog post comparing Lenovo’s ThinkPad W700 with the W500, I decided to give bing a little try. Google VS. Bing I decided to use google-vs-bing.com ...
At ConvergeSC 2009, an attendee asked me to describe how to prevent crawlers from trolling your ADO.NET Data Service. I explained as best as I could, but I felt like a blog post might make it more clear. To a bot, your data service looks like any other site on the web. Sure, it’s reading either Atom, POX, JSON, or some other bizarre format you’ve concocted, but it’s still data coming down through http and discoverable via links. There are ways to prevent a bot from crawling, but information available ...

I was working with one of the web application localization. I was searching with couple of translator's available with the web. The most popular of them are 1. Google Translation Service 2. Bing Translator Service I tried using the Google API for the web and it was pretty good. Then in recent times I came across Bing translator and tools link in them gave me the way to implement the Bing API. Bing is making a revolution in the search engines and so I liked to use that here. Following URL's are referred ...
Both Mobile Safari (in iPhone OS 3.0) and Google Android now both support getting the location of the current user. How cool is that. Finally mobile web-pages can be location aware. The user is prompted for whether they wish to enable this facility on a per site basis.

So, somehow within the past five years I’ve mapped out my life to lead to a point where I’m sitting here blogging on GeeksWithBlogs.net. I never would have guessed it…lol There’s no need for me to sweat it though. I’m a 23 year old IT college graduate that has a full time software development job, an amazing family, a loving girlfriend, and incredible friends. As one of my co-workers recently put it: “I’m livin’ the dream” :) I'm a former employee of iPay Technologies and currently work for Republic ...
It's been one week since I've started really focusing on what I've been eating and my lifestyle. My interest was piqued two weeks ago when the health center part of the company I work at mentioned a summer 'Healthy Lifestyle' program where you would follow a table of things to do every day for a month (with 3 calendars for 3 months) and get points for each item you do on the list each day, at the end the most points would win prizes. The items on this calendar range from getting 30 minutes of exercize ...

Very impatient, moderately lazy; I use the keyboard to do whatever I can whether I’m in Visual Studio, navigating the web, or just moving around the O/S. For example, if I need to launch word I’m just going to hit the Windows Key + R and then type WinWord. I use that technique for basically anything I know the application name for…notepad, calc, whatever. If the application name is “too much” for me to type I’ll create a real old-skool bat file and throw it into my C:/Windows/System32/ folder. A ...
Last night, I got around to investigating the new Web Slice functionality in IE8. I browsed to http://uk.msn.com/ and found various slices in the home page. I installed the 'News' slice and then clicked on the button in my Favourites Bar...to be greeted by a rude message saying that "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page". Bemused, I went binging and soon discovered that Google Gears and Web Slices don't play nicely together. Unfortunately, this wasn't the answer. I don't have Google Gears ...
So...there isn't really any denying that there is a lot to learn. New releases from MS, new tools from third-party provides, new libraries..whatever it may be. It's pretty unrealistic, at least with my current brain, to be able to learn all of that stuff while still having any kind of a life. Sure, I squeeze in a book on the subway, and my idea of goofing-off at work is going to DotNetKicks.com and checking out what's late and great in .NET today. That all said, I suspect it may be at least as important ...

As promised, what is my verdict after using BingUK for a week? To be perfectly honest it’s been distinctly unremarkable … and this is a good thing for Microsoft! BingUK is lacking the killer features that the US version has, the ‘get out’ for the UK version is that it’s still in Beta and will be for sometime. So perhaps BingUK is still more of a search engine than a decision engine at the moment. So how does it compare with Google? Well to be honest, it didn’t use Google much in the first place only ...
Last week, i.e. in a single week, Microsoft was on real tear: the company announced a release date for Windows 7, disclosed details of Zune HD and Zune’s integration into Xbox Live, discussed Project Natal and other coming improvements to Xbox, and launched its Bing “decision” engine. And all this week, at a special software design review (SDR) event, Microsoft is introducing major new business intelligence features coming in SQL Server 2008 R2, including its project Gemini product that helps rogue ...
I own a mac, I'm a fan of macs, but I'm not a mac-fanboy. I think they're bloody great machines, and that OSX is by far the best OS out there, but I appreciate they're not for everyone. Even osx has (cue dramatic pause) .. flaws. Copy a folder somewhere in OSX, and if the folder already exists on the destination it will prompt you to entirely replace that folder - WOT NO MERGE?! Anyway, apart from that minor niggle, OSX is awesome, especially for web development (in rails). So where am I going with ...
This review is based on Emulator Image. Not a real phone experience. Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard is a Non-Touchscreen version of Windows Mobile 6.5 OS. Why Standard?? It is still very popular today due to its ease of one handed navigation though real buttons, instead of touch controls on touchscreen based phones. Entire OS is fine tuned to let a user access most features one handed though tactile feel. After sometime using the phone most common operation do not require looking at the phone - which ...
We have been working hard on version 2.0.0 of Ra-Ajax and it is now publicly available for download. This release marks very exciting events and changes. Probably not the least of which is the switch of license from LGPL to GPL. We have completely revamped the website design, to make it easy for visitors to find just what they need. We have a new infrastructure that will allow our existing users to get the most out of Ra-Ajax and new users to get up to speed quickly. Many changes and bug fixes were ...

If you don't care about retaining all the history of one of the repositories, you can just create a new directory under one project's repository, then import the other. If you care about retaining the history of both, then you can use 'svnadmin dump' to dump one repository, and 'svnadmin load' to load it into the other repository. The revision numbers will be off, but you'll still have the history. The above quote is from the Subversion FAQ at Tigris.org. After reading it, one might get the impression ...
I rarely find Google’s product as exciting or as innovative as other people think they are. BUT… [I’ll come back as to why later on, don’t worry it’s only one feature that I need, but it’s important] I was driving yesterday, and needed to quickly look up an address, as I know the destination moved addresses recently and did not want to drive the wrong way. So I decided to use Google Maps for Mobile, as it seems to fixate on GPS in my BlackJack II faster. [To note I use my phone’s Internet and GPS ...
Microsoft have completely re-written Live Search, the new offering Bing! Bing is being marketed as a ‘decision engine’ as it tries to workout what you are looking for rather always giving the top ranking website out of an algorithm. Microsoft has commissioned allot of research to work out what people are actually trying to do for when they use a search engine. It is clear Microsoft cannot ‘out search’ Google but could gain market share by finding an edge and that edge is adding more depth. Achieving ...
Cool article.  Looking forward to the applications of this. 

Food for thought:  What would faster, more reliable connections in vehicles enable us to do?  Could cars detect traffic patterns faster or with better fidelity?  Could we upload GPS maps on the fly (some cars already do this I imagine)?   Perhaps the Google maps vehicles can start uploading their street view data as they are taking it. :P
As a part of my various experimentations, I do run Mozilla FireFox, Safari as well as Google Chrome. Recently, Mozilla had a crash and it doesn’t allow me to proceed further upon restarting it. The above screen shows up. I thought, clicking on “Restart Firefox” after submitting the information would help, but everytime I try running FireFox, the same dialog comes up. There must be some indication that Mozilla wouldn’t function and I would need to reinstall or something like that. Compared to the ...

What are the next steps to take advantage of the power of UppercuT? The Power of UppercuT UppercuT comes with many great features! You now have automated build ...
For a couple of years I have been tracking message-bodies inside BAM but only recently I was asked to make a BAM Portal document link to these message bodies that actually works :-) Strangely enough I couldn't find any solution on Google so I tried to figure this one out myself. Guess what? I had to jump through quite a few hoops. I decided to share those hoops with my other 2 blog readers (yes you). Hoop 1: the 1st and most obvious step is getting the message bodies into the BAM tables using the ...

If you ever need to deploy a WCF service to SharePoint 2007, there's plenty of information about how to do it on the web. Including how to make it work with Integrated Authentication or Forms Authentication. And it's all great and works. However, I had to make the service "run" under the context of a particular web (which was actually a subweb). By this I mean that if I have a root site and a subsite and my WCF service calls SPContext.Current.Web I'd want it to return the subsite, not the root site. ...

I added a little newsgroup browser to my SharePoint site with about a one page RSSBus SharePoint WebPart template. It works by importing the RSSBus NntpOps Connector. It calls its nntpListArticles operation to list the articles of a particular newsgroup and displays them in a table. Then when an article is clicked on, it calls the nntpGetArticle operation to retrieve the actual article – don’t worry – it will only retrieve the first 1000 lines of the article – if the thread is larger than that it ...

Over the past several months, I frequently found myself cursing the Internet slowness of my fully loaded multi-core computer. I cleaned, optimized, defragmented, flushed and did everything customary to resuscitate a lethargic machine. A blog entry described the woes of someone in a similar position. He speculated that the cause was Abobe's Flash plug-in for IE. A Google search showed people with a similar problem and similar thoughts. I figured it would not hurt to just kill Flash ... kill it as ...
