Yeah, not a programming topic but I just wanted to say that I am damn impressed with the quality of this power supply. I picked it up this weekend to power my new Athlon 3800+ dual core and GeForce 7800 GT video card and this power supply is by far the most quiet one I've ever encountered. The loudest thing in my case now is my hard drives!
It's also the first power supply I've ever had that has the cables organized as pluggable components. Basically on the back of the supply in the case there are ports to plug the...
Sahil doesn't care for telecommuting. I, however, am a big fan of it under the right conditions. The right conditions being a project guideline and scope that allows developers to do the majority of their work with a minimum of interaction. Good examples of this are modular development (modules being fairly independent of eachother),or situations where an API/business layer is already implemented and they are simply building on top of it. (Here's the api, build me a UI)
The main downside of the telecommuter is that you don't get the human interaction that some projects require. An interesting paradigm has been...
My company has been a customer of Telerik for about 6 months now, and we've been nothing but happy with the service and support we've gotten from them and the continuous improvement of quality in their controls. I highly recommend checking them out.
Anyways, recently I was asked whether I could implement some role based security for displaying the items of a telerik menu so here is how I wired it up programatically.
Step 1: Create XML File
The first step was to create an xml file with the format and fields I needed for the menu items. Instead of using the group...
I want to wish a quick goodluck to my friend Raza on his new Easy Attention product release. In brief, the product allows you to generate website notifications with a collection of nice little templates. You can embed links and formated text into the templates and they pop over the website content in a hover style.
I happen to not be a member of the pop-ups are evil crowd. Like most things in this world, it's not the tool that is evil, but the use that people put it towards. Raza's product is a quick and easy way to generate nicely...
I stumbled across this when I was taking some "me" time this weekend and just cruising the net. There are some interesting articles in there. Apparently this company is moving into my area (Cleveland). Maybe I'll bump into some of their consultants at a local event. They have an interesting website.
To fix the Object Reference Error simply open the Webmodules/Admin/EditUser.aspx.vb file. Then in the btnSave_Click method change all the variables of thisUser to editUser.
Recompile and it should work properly! I'll post a new zip file sometime this week.
Sorry it took so long to get an answer back, I've been hella busy lately with building my new house.
One interesting note is that I had uninstalled sql server 2000 to play with the sql server 2005 CTP so I either had to install it again or try to run the db installer against 2005. I ran the db installer against the 2005...
