Eraserheads Reunion Concert

I bet this is the hottest topic moving around . Anyone seems so very excited . Even rumors like this can make anyone who grew up in the 90s listening to eraserheads music jump for joy . Definitely it is not a rumor . Several reports from respected news sources have indeed confirmed that this is happening this August as some of the teaser posters and clues are trying to say.

As some reports have mentioned , it is scheduled for August 30 , 2008 . The tentative venue is at CCP Open Grounds and the best of it all , it was rumored to be a free concert where 35000 eraserheads fanatics are expected to attend

A one night only reunion concert is what we heard of but who knows what might happen next . I dont really know the reason for the reunion . It may be about sponsorship or about the money . The hell with it , I just hope that ultimately it is about good music from one of the greatest pinoy band I ever knew. Heck, Im reserving that day for the concert ( even if it is as short as a 45 minute drive to memory lane , as other rumors suggest ). Im sure it will bring back the days when everyone was singing "minsan sa may kalayaan tayo nagkatagpuan......"

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, …
