    In fact I think both you and Bhavin3004 at the previous thread should complain to your ISP instead.

    I live in Hong Kong, and experienced no problem in loading the streamed videos. So the problem is not in the web host.

    You said your network is in good speed, but is the speed a intranet speed among the network of your ISP, or oversea speed? An ISP in Hong Kong used to have 1Gb/s+ speed for sites in Hong Kong, but less than 20Mb/s for oversea traffic.

    I used to have slow MSDN download a few years ago. After I submit the tracert data to the CS of my ex-ISP, they helpfully rearrange the routing so traffics that targets MSDN now revamped to a much faster network. Maybe you should complain to your ISP and see if they can have faster network to route the MVA/Channel 9 traffic to.

    Btw, even when Channel9 is moved to Azure, the Azure India center will not be opened until the end of 2015 so it won't help at least for now for Bhavin3004's case.

  • MVC Partial View

    Humm... this is readily searchable. Just pass the model that you passed to View into the partial view.

  • Please Report Here If You Were Promoted Off The Waiting List

    Maybe next time they should send a email to everyone on the waiting list that, contains a link that can check the current applicant's position on waiting list.

    You know, some of us have to use annual leave to go to Build event. If you're on 100+, you can probably cancel the leave unless Microsoft opens more quota for the event.

  • Disable HTML encode on attributes on ASP.NET v4

    I'm migrating a .NETv3.5 project to v4. The website use a lot code of this pattern:

    ctrl.Attributes["onclick"] = "$('[data-someattr=abc']).somemethod();";

    which renders as the following:


    which is completely unusable. Anyone know some easy way to disable that?


  • Windows 10 - The next chapter

    @Proton2:They're never required to support switching orientation. This is entirely optional.

    But switching window size is another thing. Think about applications that do alignment but counting from the right, but not exactly right aligned because they have to calculate displacement with floating variable width items. (Such as image buttons with number on the top)

    When running a "modern" app in a window on the desktop, am I not supposed to be able to resize these windows vertically -- i.e. make them SHORTER? On both this build and the previous build (both fresh installations) I have not been able to. They simply take up the entire height of my display with no ability to make them shorter. I can resize them horizontally (make them WIDER and THINNER), but not vertically.

    Actually, since all other current "Modern" platforms does not support resizing after the App has started, I suppose enable them to resize after application launch could break things, especially those Apps that dynamically moving controls around.

    If I were to design the runtime, I may limit it that only Apps that have raised their API level can support resize, just to make sure things won't break.

    @Bas:My guess is that they are simply projecting an image onto each semi-transparent (tinted) visor - with your brain joining up the dots to provide the solid image.  But I'm not basing that on anything I saw in the demo.

    If they're using this kind of trick, I wonder how long you can wear it without getting headache. You know, it'd be somewhat like watching a low FPS film. It requires more work in your brain to join the images, and you'll get tired quite quickly.

  • "I think we can declare that Microsoft’s Windows RT experiment is officially dead."

    I am confused. Shouldn't I be using Win10 RT on my phone? Like, it runs on ARM (even thought RT works on x64) and it runs the same apps. It is basically WinRT without the trademark.

    They marketed the ARM version of Win8 as "Windows RT" without the "8" there, hence the confusion.

    WP7.X (consider Lumia 900 at the time) can't be upgraded to WP8, but can get some of the Metro style update. Is this kind of thing surprising?
