If you have Windows 7 (or, God forbid, Vista) and trying to run games designed for older Windows version, you may experience 2 issues – game crashes on start and game starts, but displays weird colors. Classic example is “Worms Armageddon”.
TNX Corp allows you to place static ad links on pages of your site, so you can earn some profit. Unfortunately if you leave it to TNX system, automatic rate at which links are sold and paced on your site could be very slow. You can add links to your pages manually via TNX site interface, but it is only allowed if your page Google PageRank is above 0. Also manual placement can be really inconvenient and you cannot place more than 4 ad links.
Fortunately there is a solution. Continue reading →
Last year I described a way to display accurate row count when grid in OutlookGroupBy mode has multiple sub-groups.
That solution requires custom counting function. Fortunately to display aggregates such as SUM, AVG, MIN and MAX UltraWebGrid has a built-in functionality in form of GroupByRowDescriptionMaskDefault property of DisplayLayout. It specifies the string to be displayed in every GroupBy row and can include following substitutes:
- [caption] – will display GroupBy column header text
- [value] – will display common to the group cell value
- [count] – will display row count (does not work correctly with sub-groups)
- [avg], [sum], [min], [max] – will display the aggregate for the column it’s grouped by
- [avg:ColumnKey], [sum:ColumnKey], [min:ColumnKey], [max:ColumnKey] – will display the aggregate for any other column, where ColumnKey is the key of the column
With this in mind in just a few simple steps we can make UltraWebGrid to display something like this:

Hopefully there will be a parking spot big enough for the sleigh.
In IE6/7 if you open 2 independent browsers (not using “New Window” or “New Tab”) they do not share common session and you can login to, let’s say, a web mail account under 2 different users at the same time.
This is not the case with IE8. Using 2 browser (and seeing 2 “iexplore.exe” processes in task manager) if you try to login as 2 users – the second will take over the first. I guess it’s a new “feature” of the browser.
But IE8 gives you a way out, albeit not obvious one. In menu, you can select File -> New Session. This will open a new browser window with independent session.
All browsers support “View page source” feature. But what it displays is source of the page as it was originally rendered by the server. In today’s Web 2.0 world page content can change a thousand times after that. Client-side script, user input, AJAX calls can contribute to page update.
A while back I wrote how my old Windows Vista (may she rest in peace) went into sleep mode while burning DVD-R. Well, it looks like much-bragged-about Windows 7 isn’t much better. During burning of 7Gb dual-layer DVD+R (using its own native burning app no less) it went into sleep mode. Argh! I see now how people become avid linuxoids. Is it time to switch to Ubuntu permanently yet?
