  • Bill Gates sure that Google Glass will be successful

    @Jason818:If I were Microsoft employee and doing a project not-to-be-made-public yet, I'd prefer to reduce my visit to PR sites to minimize my risk of telling thing I shouldn't tell. I think that has an effect of making previously regular visitors come here less and less often.

  • Bill Gates sure that Google Glass will be successful

    @00010101:What you're new startups you need to make some risky moves to success, otherwise you're just like 10000+ other startups you're competing with.

    Big companies can choose not to take this kind of risk if they want.

  • Bill Gates sure that Google Glass will be successful

    Actually the problem is the solution. They want to make products that customers like, so they make products that has been proved by the market.

    What's wrong there?

    Btw, for "glass" like products who make it first isn't that important. The most important part is the first one who solve the "prolonged use will cause headache" (caused by eye-strain and sore neck) problem. Let's see which company will come with sounding solution first.

  • Using Microsoft FAXComLib on a client-​server ​configurati​on

    0x800706BA is general exception that means the component does not exist, and I don't think the Fax Client exist on Home version of Windows anyway because this component needs to talk with server in order to work.

    Try to get the Pro version of Windows and install Fax feature and you should have it.

    I remember that for Win2k servers, when have Fax enabled, creates SharedFax folder that contains an install which don't pick SKUs. That's because it has to support Win9X versions. Although it may not be able to talk with newer version of servers.

  • So is SQL Server 2014 in memory Hekaton gonna crush nosql?

    If you were stupid enough to totally ignore durability just to get benchmarks, I suggest you pipe your data to /dev/null. It will be very fast.

    Nice gem.

  • Win Phone 8.1 beef.

    Now a full day has passed since the update, it seems the battery does last longer (I used to need to recharge during the first 3 rounds of "Angry Birds Go!" but today even when I cleared the 5 action points, I still have about 18% left. Is that related to the new DirectX runtime? (Or does the new runtime included in this update?)

  • So is SQL Server 2014 in memory Hekaton gonna crush nosql?

    Opensource doesn't necessary mean the performance will be inferior just because of limitation on resources being invested in there.

    Remember that when I was in school, PostgreSQL was the fastest database engine except Oracle that supports transaction at that time (although the Windows version of that engine also known to be have poor performance). Although I have no idea on how it performs in recent years (afterall, I'm no longer students that have time to tinker with random things).

  • Somebody please explain me the use of RenderBody and Render​Section by comparing it with Masterpage with multiple ​ContentPlace​Holders

    Long story short, here's a _Layout.cshtml that I used in my project:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html manifest="@Url.Content("~/app.appcache")">
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge" />
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="@Url.Content("~/css/mytheme/jquery-ui-1.10.4.custom.css")" />
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="@Url.Content("~/css/main.css")" />
        <script type="text/javascript" src="@Url.Content("~/js/jquery-1.10.2.min.js")"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="@Url.Content("~/js/jquery-ui-1.10.4.custom.min.js")"></script>
        @RenderSection("head", false)
        @RenderSection("footerscripts", required: false)

    Anything not bounded by @section sectionName {} will be rendered as body.

  • Cortana, where are you?

    There's something I can't understand. When I enable location service for my calendar, even when my location is in Hong Kong, it shows "Taiwan Public Holiday" option only and seems there's nowhere to change it.

  • Win Phone 8.1 beef.

    Some good news for Traditional Chinese users, WP8.1 finally have Quick input method.

    SMS + Call Blocker still won't load, don't know if it'll get fixed after Extras + Info update.

    Still  exploring the options offered in settings.
