Lorem ipsum is a pseudo-Latin text used in web design, typography, layout, and printing in place of English to emphasise design elements over content. It's also called placeholder (or filler) text. It's a convenient tool for mock-ups. It helps to outline the visual elements of a document or presentation, eg typography, font, or layout. Lorem ipsum is ......

Being a developer, I am always reading about orthogonality of things. Modules need to be orthogonal. I have always been confused by that term. The dictionary has several definitions of orthogonal:intersecting or lying at right anglehaving perpendicular slopes or tangents at the point of intersectionhaving the integral of the product of each pair of ......

Being a new Javascript developer coming from a C# background, I'm finding out the this keyword is a lot more nuanced (confusing?) than in C#. In C#, this means the current instatiation of the class you are in. In VB.NET, they don't have a this, they only have a Me. VB.NET has this kind of weird throwback to old VB, the module. In the module, you are ......

I've been working with Node.js projects for the last several months, and have been charged with creating a set of testing tools for automated unit testing. I've settled on Mocha.js, even though there are several others that are widely used, such as Jasmine. Mocha is really working well for sever side code without a lot of dependencies. The biggest issue ......

If you are doing any multi-threading and are using MSTest, you will probably run across this error. For some reason, MSTest by default runs in STA threading mode. WTF, Microsoft! Why so stuck in the old COM world? When I run the same test using NUnit, I don't have this problem. Unfortunately, my company has chosen MSTest, so I have a lot of testing ......

Here is a quick solution to encrypting and decrypting passwords, or any strings, easily. Write a test that runs the GetNewKey method to generate a unique key. I put the key right in the class here for demonstration purposes, but you can store it anyplace. Write another test to encrypt your password so you know the value to save in your configuration ......

What's up with Symantec? My problems with them actually started a couple of months ago when I upgraded to Windows 7. I wanted to install the Norton anti-virus program that I have a subscription for. When I've needed it before, I could go to their site, log in, and re-download my product with no problem. This time, I couldn't find it. I kept being routed ......

I use Rhino Mocks pretty much exclusively for mocking and testing. I find that there really isn't anything that I've wanted to do that I haven't been able to figure out how to accomplish with Rhino Mocks. What is everyone else using? I'd like to know so I can take a look. Anyway, as you know, with Expect.Call we can return property values, return values ......

Apple just patented MaSfPRTFfK, which stands for "Methods and Systems for Providing Real-Time Feedback for Karaoke". It detects when a singer is singing off-pitch according to some pitch data stored with the karaoke song data. The idea is to give some kind of feedback to the singer so they can learn to sing on key. How this technology will be available ......

Recently I have been doing some work on an older system using ADODB recordsets. Every now and then we still have to support these old systems. I wanted to create an open recordset in code on the .NET side to pass to the older system, but ADODB really wants an open database connection in order to open a recordset. My first obvious attempt was to create ......
