The Power of Poetry

A while back, I posted a poem written by Drew Dillinger. It begins:
it's 3:23 in the morning
and I'm awake
because my great great grandchildren
won't let me sleep
my great great grandchildren
ask me in dreams
what did you do while the planet was plundered?
what did you do when the earth was unraveling?
Words have power. And these are powerful words.

I am not the only one who think so. Recently a congresswoman quoted the poem during Congressional hearings on climate change legislation.

MP3 player with ATmega64 VS1011a and Samsung E700 color Display

This is my new mp3 player.

For this MP3 player is new: the display and a new graphical interface explorer.

Knowing that the display of the Nokia 6100 is an old and extremely poor quality, I thought to exchange it with one TFT display ( higher quality ) , by doing this I thought I make an new interface, and this is the result:

Log4Net inside code run with MSTest unit testing

This was confusing me for a while so chances are it was also confusing someone else out there.

I could not get logging using log4net to output to the configured logger inside my unit tests
i tried
[assembly: log4net.Config. XmlConfigurator()]
in the unittest projects assembalyinfo but still log4net would not pick up the config

i found that the answer is to place an assembly initialise inside the unit test project, only one mind in the whole project. In fact if you do add 2 its an error

[AssemblyInitialize]
public static void AssemblyInitialize(TestContext testContext)

Windows 7 Theme for Series 40 v2

Windows 7 Theme for Series 40 v2




The theme is designed for Series 40 v2 devices having a resolution of 128*160 & hence it is not compatible with newer Series 40 phones having a resolution of 240*320. The theme works well on Nokia 3110 classic & hence it will run fine on other Series 40 phones like Nokia 3500 Classic having a resolution of 128*160.

Proxy settings for access point in NOKIA S40 [WORKING OPERAMINI AND GOOGLEMAPS 100%]

As we all know, Nokia doesn't allow one to specify a proxy for an
Access Point in Series 40 v2 and v3 phones (6131, 6133, 3110c ...) etc.

In
its recent versions of the Series40 OS (v2 & v3), Nokia has removed
the ability to specify a proxy server associated with an access point.
Therefore, those with WAP network plans (such as TMobileWeb users,
Airtel NOP users) are unable to use JAVA programs that require internet
access (such as Opera Mini, www.google.com Maps, ...).

However, Nokia
does allow users to create a provisioning document on their computer.
This document, created in wbxml, specifies an access point along with a
proxy. The S40 phone recognizes the configuration settings in the
document and allows the JAVA midlet to use those instead, thereby
allowing the midlet to access the proxy. Its very simple to implement.


The files included in the zip provide some sample xml documents, and the associated provisioning (.prov) files.



figure it out yourself, genius.

Microsoft FY09Q3 Results

Last time we did quarterly results, it was a doooozy. Immediate layoffs for 1,400 Microsofties and sometime-in-the-next-18-months layoffs for 3,600 more. Of course, the layoffs were offset somewhat by continued crazy hiring for Live Search (should we expect a work of Shakespeare to pop out of there sometime soon, too?).What kind of questions do you want to be asked during the conference call? Some off of the top of my head:So... how's that, ah, layoff... thingy.. going? Which groups and products are specifically being affected by layoffs? What other cost-cutting measures are in effect?What are the causes in drop of revenue and what are the expectations going forward (will Microsoft give guidance this time)?What bright spots are there in profits?How is gaining share going?The EU seems to be pulling its leg way back for a full-on kick to Microsoft's financial groin. How does the defense against EU charges look to protect shareholder money for additional EU fines?What does a fina…

Exchange 2007: The sequence of predicates is invalid

Summary: When creating a transport rule I got the following error: "The sequence of predicates is invalid" In this case it appears that the order or predicate rules mattered.

In this example, I was creating a rule to silently drop all messsages coming in from an external address to an internal address.

$Condition = Get-TransportRulePredicate FromAddressContains
$Condition1 = Get-TransportRulePredicate SentTo
$Condition.words = @("externaluser1@gmail.com","externaluser2@gmail.com")
$Condition1.addresses = @(get-mailbox user1)
$Action = Get-TransportRuleAction DeleteMessage
New-TransportRule -Name "Deny Senders to Cellulardeals" -Condition @($Condition,$condition1) -Actions @($Action)

This would yield "The sequence of predicates is invalid" However after swapping the condition to put SentTo before FromAddressContains it works fine.

$Condition = Get-TransportRulePredicate SentTo
$Condition.addresses = @(get-mailbox user1)
$Condition1 = Get-Transpo…

The media have finally discovered homelessness. Not surprisingly, they get the story wrong

One of the fundamental human requirements is shelter. How do homeless people survive? Where do they sleep? On friends and family's couches and floors (if they are lucky), at shelters, in churches, in parks, on sidewalk grates, in abandoned buildings, in doorways, under bridges, in cars, or wherever else they can.

And of course, they sleep in tents. The burgeoning tent cities in the U.S. have finally made the national awareness. Interestingly, it seems as though the media is only interested in the newly homeless, those middle class folks who lost their homes because of the economic collapse. In other words, those who they believe are homeless because of circumstances, not because of some kind of individual moral failing. Unlike, you know, the other kind of poor.
Over the past few months, reporters from around the world have flocked to the now-famous tent city in Sacramento, Calif. When they find out that 55-year-old John Kraintz has been living in a tent for almost seven years, they…

EDGE and GPRS Technologies for Mobile Phones

Early Farmers in the Americas - Farming because they wanted to, not because they had to

This is an interesting article, especially for me, with my interest in indigenous precolumbian agriculture in the Americas.Three thousand eight hundred years ago, long before U.S. plains rippled with vast rows of corn, Native Americans planted farms with hardy "pioneer" crops, according to new evidence of the first farming in eastern North America.

Because the area appears to have been well stocked with wild food sources, the discovery may rewrite some beliefs about what led people to start farming on the continent, scientists say.

Rather than turning to farming as a matter of survival, the so-called Riverton people may have been exercising "free will" and engaging in a bit of gastronomic innovation, archaeologists say.
This does not surprise me in the least. We always assume 'prehistoric' peoples started farming because they had to, as a survival technique, but we don't ever stop to think that they might be just like us, inventing new things simply becau…

Spitfire Backfire, Live Labs, and Not My 1,400

Here's a quick post before next Thursday's quarterly results. Given the layoffs in the last quarterly results I know there is some increased anxiety about any additional cost cutting Mr. Ballmer might be ready to unleash, like more staff reductions or, you know, "Hey congratulations on entering RC and all. Now... about that next release and, well, you specifically..." Mr. Joseph Tartakoff over at paidContent has a post around further reductions: Microsoft Still On Track To Cut Another 3,600 Jobs.Contrition time for me: last post I shared how amazed I was that everyone in the 1,400 that I knew or that were in my extended network got rehired. Pretty much the feedback I heard here and on Twitter was, "Wow, you're one lousy sample set," because a number of you are either in the non-presently-Microsoftie 1,400 or know plenty of people in that pool.I wish I could blame it on drinking too much at Spitfire but, (1) it wasn't opened yet, and (2) it will neve…

India behind Liberty, Manawan attacks: CCPO Lahore

CAPITAL City Police Officer Muhammad Pervaiz Rathore has claimed that the terrorists involved in the Liberty and Manawan attacks had clear links with India as police have gathered solid proofs.

He was talking to journalists here on Friday after laying the foundation stone of a new police hospital at the Police Lines, Qila Gujjar Singh.

The CCPO refused to give further details about the breakthrough and ‘solid proofs’ saying that the details would be provided by some high official of Punjab or the federal governments.

However, he confirmed that police and intelligence agencies had grilled the arrested terrorists, reviewed the twin incidents and got proofs that the arrested terrorists had clear links with India and its intelligence agency RAW. To a question, the CCPO said no press conference was scheduled to be held in near future in this regard.

REHMAN MALIK, X security officer of Benazir Bhutto

I was listening yesterday after terrorist attack on FC check post in Islamabad. Rehman Malik was saying its done by Islamic militants. Rehman Malik is always speaking without any investigations, he is not a credibble person. As said by CM of Punjab Shahbaz Shareef that Rehman Malik is "Jhooton ka I.G" means biggest liars. These kind of persons are usually sponsored by foreign intelligence agencies and they speak their language, he is not an elected person so he shud be replaced with someone who is elected. He is still unable to solve the case of Benazir Bhutto, who was murdered in Rawalpindi around a year ago. And Rehman Malik was Cheif Security officer for Benazir Bhutto. Firstly he was unable to protect the life of his leader and later he is unable to put First Investigation Report (FIR). Why he is not pursuing Benazir Case? Why he was unable to secure HER? There are many Questions still to be answered by Rehman Malik.

An attampt to Sabotage Peace Deal in SAWAT Valley

Recently we are listening to some news which is believed to be made around 6 to 12 months ago. Most Taliban leadership did not accepted the responsibility of such an act. The propaganda of such a video after 6 months clearly shows who is behind it. This is another attempt to Sabotage the Peace deal in Sawat which brought peace in the valley after years of War. The War which costs SAWAT residence around 32 Billion RS and casualties of hundreds of innocent civilians. The forces behind this propaganda does not want peace in Pakistan whether its SAWAT or Waziristan, they want unrest and casualties of innocent civilians. I am sorry to say that nobody put much emphasis on DRONE attack which have already costs many civilian casualties, we never launched a protest against this act of cruelty but we can launch a protest on a base less video. Are we going in the right direction? Arent we enforcing the anti-Pakistan forces by following their Agenda? Arent we happy to the peace deal in SAWAT whic…

Brief intro to LINQ

Ive recently given a breif tutorial to the guys on our team on LINQ (Language integrated query)

As with Generics, LINQ is a large subject that i cant write up properly without spending quite a lareg amount of time on, so i'll give a breif overview with an example of a common usage in the context of a generic list.

Overview

LINQ is a technology (or language construct) that allows you to process data using functional programming logic to perform an operation. The LINQ API is an attempt to provide a consistent programming model that allows you to manipulate data. Using LINQ we are able to create directly within the C# programming language entities called query expressions, these query expressions are created from numerous query operators that have been intentionally designed to look and feel similar (but not identical) like SQL. Using LINQ you can interact with many sources of data, listed below:

LINQ implementations
LINQ to objects
Linq to SQL
Linq to entities
Linq to XML
There are other LIN…

Are We Muslim???

The President of Pakistan Mr. Asif ali Zardari, is drinking publicaly when he was on a visit to China. Mr. Foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Rehman Malik were standing next to Mr. President while tossing a glass of wine with Chinese counterpart. I feel embaraced to call myself as a Pakistani, a citizen of a Muslim nation whose president drinks publicaly. We got many leaders who drink publicaly like Mr. Musharaf, Mr. Yahya, Mr. Zulifaqar Ali Bhutto and now a new add up of our Mr. 10% who is now also known as Mr. 100%. Once i was astonished to see Mr. Asif's popularity in the world when some of my foreign friend asked me IS your president also known as Mr. 10%. For one moment my feelings were Sad and i was also laughing on this comment from a foreigner. This shows how 'POPULAR' we are.

Is government taking these threats seriously?

It has been over a year now, since a power transition had taken place in Pakistan. The mandate was given to the democratic forces and the political parties projecting Musharraf’s agenda were rejected by the nation. Everyone was aware of the adverse challenges the country is facing and there were no quick solutions for the challenges. The parliamentary forces recognising the complexity of issues and understanding confrontation will do no good to the cause unanimously voted for the Prime Minister Gillani. It seemed like we were entering into politics of “Reconciliation”. But the government lost that support by withdrawing back from series of publicly made commitments. Pakistan is facing major challenges such as energy crisis, power shortage, subservient foreign policy, unemployment and internal threats like extremism in NWFP region. Restoring the judiciary was not a major issue as it required an executive order by PM for reinstating the judges; however it is a separate issue which can b…

Quick intro to generics

Recently ive been teaching some new developers on the team about generics, its not a new concept i know, and when you know about them you cant quite figure how people sometimes just dont know about them, they are so helpfull.

So tell me about them then!

Generics came in at .net 2.0 and are used extensively through out the .net framework internally, if you do much .net dev work you will come across then at some point.

What are generics

Generics allow you to define a type (class or structure) while leaving some of the details unspecified.

Quick Tip
When you see the following in code you know you are looking at code that uses generics

//C#
List myArray = new List();
List my2ndArray = new List();

'VB.Net
Dim myArray As New List(Of integer)();
Dim my2ndArray As New List(Of myClass)();

The main benefits for using generics are:
Type safety (you can only put ints in a collection of ints for example)
Performance (boxing and unboxing of primitive types is eliminated)
Clarity (you can see in vis…
