IP Switch WS_FTP die die

with one comment

I always been a fan of WS_FTP up until last night I just can’t get on with that freaking slow file transfer. I just told myself to blame ISP for not taken care of FTP connection however after tried a few different ISP connection I start to belive that was not the case. I must had to do something about it or else I better shot myself in the foot. So here come the decision:

Get rid of WS_FTP install CuteFTP from GlobalSCAPE and voilá all the pain gone thanks Budha !
Last word die die die WS_FTP.

Tabify why I never care?

with 2 comments

I thought I was one of the coder who obey coding standard, but hell no until a guy told me I wasn’t. That kind of make me feel like a fool :))


Well, this is how I get around:

  • Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> C# -> Tabs (Hell no ! “Insert spaces” was selected)
  • select “Keep tabs”

Alright let see will this work “Tabify”

  • Edit -> Advanced -> View White space (Crtl + R, Crtl + W)
  • Now reformat your code [ Ctrl + A; Ctrl + K, Ctrl + F]


Is that “Tabify” you talking about Ken ;)

Ubuntu "Dock It Mac Way"

leave a comment »

It almost 2 months since my busy schedule started, I was unable to find sometime to spend with my beloved Gutsy until today * I am no expert in Ubuntu * in the exploration process I decided to upgrade a few packages to it latest version and well I come across one cool package:

Avant Window Navigator (Awn) is a dock-like bar which sits at the bottom of the screen. It has support for launchers, task lists, and third party applets.The Awn project is the development of the ‘dock’, avant-window-navigator, and its corresponding shared library ‘libawn’, which is used to develop applets.

For more detail instruction read it @ http://www.ubuntugeek.com or direct link Avant Window Navigator enjoy fun ;)

Visual Studio 2008 stink without ReSharper

with one comment

Oh ! man I though VS2008 will give developer more productivity I was wrong.
Without ReSharper I feel like I take my time writing stupid code that do nothing.

VS2008 Refactoring tool is suck !

However the ReSharper 4.0 for Visual Studio 2008 is not yet release, but I can install the 3.1 with the following command

msiexec /i ReSharperSetup.3.1.Full.VS80.msi VSVERSION=9.0

And here we go all the goodness command are come back to me.
If you don’t believe me watch demo video feature highlight.

Open Source need love

leave a comment »

Well, as far as I hate to work on desktop application. I can’t avoid support & maintenance legacy desktop applications (VB6) used. One in a while I received a nicely call from provincial staff report bug in the system – “report x missing budget code? …”. Well fixing the bug is not a big deal as long as it can be reproduce. Once the bug is fixed I need to upload the setup.exe to our web server so everyone can access to the latest version. The problem is the size of the setup file it has to be as small as possible. To make this possible I had tried various softwares and it get down to the following tool.

The open source project :) it so sweet take as much as you want (oh! and your kin as well).

What I got from the combination?

  • Easy to use – code NSIS script within eclipse IDE rich commands
  • Small setup file
  • You decide which file to deploy which I like the most.
  • it FREE

Cons:

  • These tools are not bundle
  • I had trouble write a proper script for the first time
