ten reasons why you should date a geek

i was scavenging on my inbox when i found this funny article that sent to a friend of mine.i saw this almost 2 years ago in DEVPINOY so i guess i posting it now in my blog.

1. Geeks are useful, they can fix your desktop, laptop, … Those skills are very useful and can make your life run smooth.

2. They are romantic than they're given credit for. Their idea of romance might be making up a web-page abut about you. But hey it lasts longer than flowers and you can show your friends.

3. They've got brains and they're usually very well educated.

4. They're relatively low-maintenance. So there will be no complicated dinners needed. And if you're not the best cook, you can order a pizza.

5. You won't have to worry about what he's doing. You'll probably find him at his computer.

6. They trust you, so you can be yourself around them. You like to walk around the house in a ratty t-shirt for comfort? He won't care. They won't get pissy if you don't wear make-up or don't want to bother primping your hair.

7. He will make you shine everywhere you go. No matter how clumsy you sense of style, no matter how awkward your social skills, you'll be a fashion star and a classy diplomat next to your geek. He'll make you look so good; you'll fall in love with yourself.

8. If you are not into computers, TVs and DVD and you don't care about being popular and fashionable. What about the newest techie gadgets? You are going to be a proud owner of the latest gadgets if you ever decide to date a geek.

9. He won't cheat on you either. Place the sexiest woman on earth in a room with a geek, say Angelina Jolie. At the other corner of the room, place the latest model of some computer or other. I am willing to bet that your geek would want to play with that computer much more than getting to know Angelina Jolie. In fact, he might not even see her if the computer is on and connected to the Internet. C'mmon he has to check his email, surf the web and blog about the fact that he is in a room with Angelina Jolie.

10. The final reason is: They actually give a damn about you. Not how you look (though that's a plus), not how skinny you are, not how much make-up you primp yourself up with, but they like you for you.

im not saying that these reasons should keep the hopes up of those desperate geeks waiting for someone to get laid with. extra effort is needed , you can just stay there infront of your machine expecting someone from another gender to bump into you and ask you out.

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:
Copy and paste the lines below :

"**/*.pyc":{"when":"$(basename).py"},"**/__pycache__":true

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, …
