MSLINUX , wtf!!!!

As I was playing around the web searching for some answers to my linux questions , I came across a page for MSLinux. Initially , I found it intriguing , knowing the fact that the URL seems so serious . Then I questioned myself , are the redmond giant trying their luck on the Linux affair? Well , as it turned out after reading through the entire page , it is just a pure joke (in my opinion) and I had a good time laughing on the features. Below is an overview of the supposedly MSLINUX distro . You can visit the page here.

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.
