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:

renaming default namespaces for VSTO projects in VS2008

So here is the scenario , you are starting a VSTO project and decided that your default namespace is ExcelAddInTesterApp . You created the project and started coding the project. After several days , your boss called and said "hey marvin , make use of this namespace OurCompany.ExcelAddInTesterApp , we have to add our company name to it got it?" . You get back to your machine thinking its just a simple property just like any project you've been working on. So you right clicked the VSTO project and hit properties . Boom! What the F@#$? The default namespace textbox is disabled!!!!

I've been through this and I googled for ways to do it and ended up with a blog from a Microsoft MVP telling me it can't be done because it is disabled. Then I thought of Refactoring, the beauty and grandeur of the renaming process. I selected the namespace and hit the refactor menu hoping that this would solve the problem . Unfortunately , it did not rather it displayed the message box …

Automatic Properties and Object Initializers in .Net 3.5

With the release of .Net 3.5 alongside with Visual Studio 2008 , new enhancements was again introduced . Some maybe well pronounced such as the inclusion of WCF, WPF , LINQ in .Net 3.0 and some just came unnoticed. If you have been accustomed of using a particular method or technique in implementing a certain code in .Net 2.0 , because of backward compatibility , you may not even notice that there are new ways of implementing it in .Net 3.5.

Here are two new concepts in .Net 3.5 that a developer may not notice ( at least in my opinion ) : Automatic Properties and Object Initializers . To illustrate these two , I am going to present the pre-.Net 3.5 way (.Net 2.0) and the .Net 3.5 way in creating a simple class with simple properties.

Automatic Properties

Creating a class can be tedious , especially when working with a list of properties , . One way to get around having to type the code for a private field and its public property getter and setter is to use a refactoring tool. However, …
