My first crack at Google Chrome

What is Google Chrome? Its a new one from search engine giant Google , a new INTERNET browser to say the least. A move to gain more market share in computing . First they had GMAIL then GoogleDocs and now Google Chrome.

Upon first sight to this new baby , I tried downloading it in the office using Windows 2000 as the OS , unfortunately as of this moment only Vista and XP is supported for Microsoft . Now using XP , I spent a little time looking at the features it has to offer . I know this is just a short preview of what Chrome is, but it will give you an idea on its future.

The Interface. The chrome sports a new look it terms of browser design. Its minimalistic in concept , designed for those who wants easy browsing. It radiates a light blue skin that soothes any surfers eyes and few buttons to get you going. Like any new browser , tabs are provided.


Unlike other famous browser, clicking on the new tab will bring about a rather more informative page rather than a blank empty useless page.

The address bar also serves as the Search Bar for a quick access to Googles' powerful search engine.

The Incognito Window. A more interesting feature is its Incognito window. A new browser look with hidden functionality.

What seperates Incognito from an ordinary browser can be best explained by clicking the new tab in the browser itself to bring about the page below:

The browser is just starting and there may be compatibility issues down the line . This galant effort by Google to come up with a new browser is somewhat refreshing and promising. For more information about Google Chrome , visit this site.

The best thing about Google Chrome , it is FREE and it is OPEN SOURCE.

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.
