Anti Colorum Drive , WTF????

Going to work every 5 days of the week seems to be the worst ordeal for a city commuter like me . Good thing my place is near a shuttle service bound for Makati . You are right , not a legit service , colorum if you may say . I may get some unfriendly feedback , but i thank these colorum vans is a big help to common "taos" like me . Its not that I love breaking the law , its just that I feel convenient for them doing so . Imagine the hassle of going to Quiapo then ride another bus for Makati .

Going forward , I wrote this blog not in support of colorum boys but to give my observations how authorities conduct what they call "Anti Colorum Drives" . I have experienced queueing for almost an hour because there were limited van willing to travel because of the above mentioned program . Yes , i have also experienced the feel of being chased by this uniformed man in big bikes and eventually overtaking the van at Valero . But this does not happen everyday . The funny thing behind it is that the same yellow and white uniformed guys man the Makati area everyday of the week , but in most cases they dont even seem to care if the vehicles on the street are colorum vans , worst even those that should not be allowed to travel because of coding can still carry their passengers from my place to Ayala .

This only means one thing , the law seems to have an schedule and its not consistent or constant . If they are really serious about this campaign then do it everyday . For now , I give my hands to these colorum boys for making my everyday travel less cumbersome .

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 …

Farewell NU107.5

As I write this blog,  millions of Filipino rock fanatics may have already known what happens after 12:00 midnight tonight. The only surviving station that caters to the rock genre will, sadly, be closing down and permanently signing off tonight. The news came to late to enjoy every second of what is left.  The sad news came to me the last week of October.  Being a follower of the station, I never believed it at first. But online resources would say the station really is nearing its demise.  With several minutes to go, it will be dead air.
