DCPROMO Problems

For a week now i have been configuring the Windows Server 2003 at our all started with simple domain change..being adventeurous as i am i indeed took the hard road to changing a domain name. . yes i knew i can rename it bu the child in me forced me to resort to DC demotion and promotion using DCPROMO.. well it seems i messed it up. after the demotion and promotion the server log on time became next to forever took around 3 hours just to see the desktop.. and in shutting down it takes forever to log off... after googling around the problem boiled down to one problem..DNS

you know what , i was so so patient that i have to research and try all possible solutions to the problem without disrupting the internet service we were offerring ..thus i cannot just restart and play around with the server because the server is also our proxy server... everything just started crumbling down access starts to slow down while other site remains somewhat constant... i cannot access the configuration storage server in ISA and worst SQL server just stop working.. with the planned deployment of the new Student Information System this August..i was worried..i even spent half day in the office without pay just to get this darn server going...without pay and it didnt work...

so after an hour of thinking my next move ..i came out with a more adventeurous solution..reinstalling everything..well this is not a bad idea..the server is not yet in production line and its xbetter to clean it out first before placing it in the i sacrificed my p4 pc with 40G and 256MB to be my temporary proxy server so as not to disrupt the internet service before dismantling out priced IBM now im stucked in the office doing all the reinstallation..

so whats the point in bloggin all these..well im just frustrated in a way for not carrying out the first plan successfullly..but ill continue learning and reading hoping solutions will just come by...

Hiding Unwanted Python Folders and Files in Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code is a universal editor and pretty good at it. However, the explorer view maybe cluttered with the automatically generated folders and files confusing developers. Python is no different. Below are example files and folders generated by Python.

The __pycache__ folder and *.pyc files  are totally unnecessary to the developer. To hide these files from the explorer view, we need to edit the settings.json for VSCode. Add the folder and the files as shown below:

Get Started with MongoDB Stitch : The New Backend As Service Offering from MongoDB

Halfway of this year, the guys from MongoDB launch their new backend as service product called MongoDB Stitch. While the launch is just for the beta, the promise of the service is quite interesting. MongoDB has been around for long now and some development stacks have been based on its database product, the MongoDB-ExpressJS-Angular-NodeJS (MEAN) and the MongoDB-ExpressJS-React-NodeJS (MERN) stacks to name a few. These stacks, however, relies on backend technology such as ExpressJS and NodeJS. The idea of provisioning servers and developing the backend solution makes it daunting for small to medium scale applications. MongoDB Atlas, at least made life much easier by providing on cloud database solution, but there must be a simpler solution, right? A solution the would stitch the backend and frontend together ( see what I did there ?).
MongoDB Stitch lets developers focus on building applications rather than on managing data manipulation code, service integration, or backend infrastruct…

Getting Started with Stateless : A Lightweight Workflow Library Alternative for .NET

A year ago, I was looking for a simple workflow manager for a project I was working. Its a medium sized application that involves tracking the state of assets in the system. Back in 2008, Microsoft (MS) introduced new technologies along with the release of Visual Studio 2008: Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), and Windows Workflow Foundation(WF). Having worked in a company utilizing mostly MS products for development, my first option was to go with WF. After doing some time reading and studying the library, I paused and decided it was too complex for my requirement. Using WF would be an overkill and the fact that it has, a rather, steep learning curve, there has to be another option. My mind toyed with the idea of developing a simple workflow library myself. It would be a learning experience but it might end up consuming a lot of time.

Why reinvent the wheel? So I started querying the internet for a better solution. I stumbled upon Stateless
