I just picked up some very interesting information from http://blogs.wdevs.com/coli... seems that in IE javascript can extract data out of your clipboard. It doesn't work with FireFox either because the feature is not supported or off by default. Luckily, it is a security option and it can be disabled.Go to Tools --> Internet Options...Click on the Security TabSelect Internet Zone and then click Custom Level...Scroll down to the scripting section and see ...
There's a new auction site called Wagglepop which will be launched in February 2005. Wagglepop project has been discussed since last november on several auction community forums. With the recent fee increases and customer satisfaction problems at eBay, there's a huge amount of interest to Wagglepop from auction sellers. Wagglepop will take its place in the market with the slogan “The Smarter Way to Buy and Sell” . Wagglepop will focus on Search Engine Optimization and will have a different ...
I've decided to register for Coop Advertising Network couple of months ago. It's a free service offered by Digitalpoint . Since joining the Coop Advertising Network , I've seen dramatic increases with my search engine results. I'd highly recommend using Coop Advertising Network to any website owners. Below is an FAQ from Digitalpoint website. Coop Advertising Network FAQ What is this? The ad network is a network of site owners that offer ad space to the network. In return, the ads they define are ...
When I first started with SharePoint I was pretty much surprised that the ability to create tabs was only available on meeting workspaces. I have no explanation as to why there is such a limitation. I am also currently unaware of a hack to make that system available across all WSS Sites, but here is something that I was able hooked up, and I am actually pleased with it (the main reason I am pleased with it, is because it’s nothing more than a DataView WebPart). What I wanted was a system of ...
PASADENA, Calif. (Reuters) - The European-built space probe Huygens entered the atmosphere of Saturn's largest moon, Titan, on Friday, sending back indications it was alive and well and leaving scientists eager for its first research data. The Saturn orbiter Cassini, which acted as the relay station for Huygens, sent signals back showing that it had finished its acquisitions from Huygens and had turned toward Earth to begin transmission of a likely three hours of data. Huygens began its two-hour ...
DARMSTADT, Germany - European space probe Huygens landed safely on the surface of Saturn's moon Titan today (Friday), a space official said, buoying hopes the mission would produce data that could shed light on the origins of life on Earth. AP Photo Canadian Press Slideshow: Saturn and Moon Titan Officials were jubilant as early signals showed the probe powering up for entry, then beginning the 2 1/2-hour parachute descent during which it was to gather information that could shed light on how life ...
I have updated my MSN search look. Feel free to use it. Thanks again to David Cumps for the original. MSN search (beta) function blogSearchMSN(event, oInput) { var keyCode = (event) ? event.keyCode : keyStroke.which; if (keyCode == 13) { top.location = 'http://beta.search.msn.com... + escape(oInput.value) + '&FORM=QBRE'; return false; } return true; } function blogSearchMSN2(oInputId) { var oInput = document.getElementById(oIn... top.location = 'http://beta.search.msn.com... ...
Thanks to David Cumps I added a google search to my blog. It did take a little tweeking though :) Be sure to change “pmenefee“ to your blog directory. <SCRIPT type=text/javascript> function blogSearch(event, oInput) { var keyCode = (event) ? event.keyCode : keyStroke.which; if (keyCode == 13) { top.location = 'http://www.google.com/sear... + oInput.value + '+inurl%3Apmenefee+%3Ageeks... return false; } return true; } function blogSearch2(oInputId) { <BR>var ...
After listening to a few conversations and a discussion I had with a recruiter today, I can’t help but wonder if client-side scripting will be the hot topic of choice for this year. I know it has been around since early versions of web browsers, but let me explain. If you’ve been watching Google, you know that they have released several new projects that go beyond simple web applications. Notably, there was Gmail. If you haven’t already heard, Gmail is Google’s free e-mail ...
This in a sense is just a rant, but also a serious post. I've been working for this company (still the same one I wrote about before) for the last five years in changing roles, I always had some sort of connection to the web component, and in the past 2.5 years, I have been on the actuall dev team of it. To outline the past roadmap of this application, lets just say that it started as a demo. which is the worst mistake that was done here. Why? because when you develop something as a demo/poc/ just ...
Maurice shares some thoughts on what most probably might be with the next Version of SharePoint. He also mentions vaguely the nuance of developing and deploying WebParts. The fact is SharePoint v Next will built on the next version of Asp.net. I am sure that most of you would agree that WSS is today what it is because of Asp.net. The move up from SPS 2001 or STS to SharePoint 2003 was phenomenal. All that productivity capabilities just opened up with the 2003 versions. I suspect that we can look ...
As a developer wanting to create a WebPart that needs a date picker everybody will tempted to use SharePoint's date picker. Unless you know how to use it you are going to run into a couple of gotchas. Basically everybody initially stumbles, trying to find a way to get it to display. What you should ideally do to use the OWSDateField is OWSForm frm1 = new OWSForm(); OWSDateField df1 = new OWSDateField(); frm1.Controls.Add(df1); If you are creating an ASP.NET form, you would need to have the following ...
The secret formula for interactive web applications: iWebApp = HttpRequest as channels + Javascript objects as messages If you have Firefox installed, click on this link for a half-baked sample. SqlManager * Clicking on a table refresh its structure * Clicking on view, shows the table's content * Clicking on run, executes the SQL command Add a rich user interface like XUL and there you have it, an improved formula for a richer web experience ...

Slowly but surely, the world is waking up from an xml-induced comma.
Google has been the first one to open their eyes and see a better world.
The right medicine can cure the worse of the maladies, and sometimes it is discovered just by accident.

My bets are on javascript.

I absolutely hate it when people are pedantic. I know some pedantic people. They are currently making my life hell. The pedants in my life are ...
This is in reference to custom webcontrol development. I have my own preference on this matter and have not been able to get more than that from outside sources. No book or posting labels either as 'better than the other', though I've come across a couple of papers stating that composite controls are the 'preferred' way. So let's start with the difference between the two: Rendered controls are developed by overriding the Render method in the custom control class and writing directly to the rendering ...
With the holiday seasons, retail industry is having a peak time. How about online sales? Several big websites announce their fancy quarter numbers, and look very happy about them. How about eBay? eBay's quarter numbers looked pretty good and also promising. But if you speak to eBay sellers, they will say this is the slowest season. Since eBay sales are increasing, more buyers are visiting the website, and also eBay has launched a new advertisement campaign, so what is the real problem? eBay seller ...
I just have notices that you can't access hyperlink as usually you access other serverside controls. Suppose there is a Server side TextBox named “txtBox” you will Access it in javaScript as [document_name].[form_name]... document.form.txtBox.value here is assume that the name of my Server Side Text box is “txtBox“ and the name of my Form is “form“ okie this is the normal procedure . you can't Access Server Side in the same fashion. As it is rendered ...
From the Google Blog: You probably never notice the large number that appears in tiny type at the bottom of the Google home page, but I do. It's a measure of how many pages we have in our index and gives an indication of how broadly we search to find the information you're looking for. Today that number nearly doubled to more than 8 billion pages. That made me smile. Comprehensiveness is not the only important factor in evaluating a search engine, but it's invaluable for queries that only return ...
No I wasn't fired after my week of management, nor have I received any feedback on my performance - which is very dis-appointing. Following my previous post where I kind of made it clear that I don't want to keep working here, this past week strengthened my resolve. So I did some steps - some interviews are coming ahead with some interesting options. Just for you who are looking for workers, I'm an Internet Developer mainly working with VB, ASP, SQL Server (and of course client side scripting Javascript, ...
It’s not as hard as you think. A few years back, all I knew about computers was on the software side of things. I am a developer and have been programming since I was twelve. I never considered doing anything on the hardware side of things myself. I remember the computer I bought in 1994 cost me $3,800. Computers today are not that expensive, but they still are pricey, BUT I AM HERE TO TELL YOU THAT YOU CAN EASILY BUILD YOUR OWN COMPUTER. It is easier than doing a puzzle … really. Here ...
I am pretty busy nowadays, and I didn't have a chance to post to my blog. Here's what's going on with my life. Last friday we had a barbeque party at my place, and our friends came over. It was pretty fun. Sunday we went to the musical “Les Miserables” which was on a national tour. I missed my old days, visiting Broadway shows in NY, but this is cool, too to have a Broadway show in Lubbock, TX. You can find more info about Les Miserables Musical on this link. Work is pretty good, I got ...
I need a few recommendations for training for two of my co-workers who are going from ASP w/ JavaScript to C#/.NET Framework/ASP.NET. Shameless plugs won't be ignored but keep it civil. They are both very smart and I don't think they will have problems with C# and it's syntax because it is so close to JavaScript but the .NET Framework is a huge beast so they will definitely need help with that. Any takers?
A couple of neat thoughts at SharePointblogs shared by Bob Mixon and Dustin Miller on how to fix the ‘Show it all’ UI of SharePoint. Daniel McPhearson also points to this post on Point2Share about options available to alter the UI. Radical thought of the moment: There’s no way I am writing JavaScript to this. I don’t even want to imagine going through all the trouble of debugging the script. Although I do agree with Bob, I would have preferred the adaptive interface to be ...
As usual, we have rented some movies last weekend. Since I am from Europe and grew up watching European independant movies, I am always looking for different movies at Hastings. I like the big budget Hollywood movies, but you have to keep up with what's going on with low budget movies. Here we are in Hastings, looking for some movies to rent, and my wife rents the movie called “Coffee & Cigarettes”. We check it out, big big names, such as Roberto Benigni, Steven Wright, Jarmusch etc. ...
Overstock.com is trying to give Internet giant eBay a run for its money. The company, which sells other retailers' excess inventories at discounted prices online, is starting its own auction service. Overstock officials said yesterday they want to offer customers lower fees and a more simple site to use. The company says 15,000 people have already signed up for the service, which was launched almost a week ago. They say that's not a bad start, but admit they're still lag well behind eBay's 114 million ...
Individually they’ve been unstoppable in their respective industries. They’re both legends that have survived the dot com burst and came out winners. Now they’re using both their muscle to combat a Canadian spammer who has been using spam to perform "phishing" fraud. First, an introduction to Phishing: "Phishing", for the uninitiated, is a form of fraud which uses fake, but official looking e-mails to solicit information from consumers such as credit card numbers, social security ...
I was reading through the discussion forums, and on FreeAuctionScripts Discussion Forum, I have seen a post by a respected, and well known internet business owner bargainbloodhound . The post is about a comment made by eBay Stores Team management. eBay's customer service problems are becoming a very serious problem and many big sellers are leaving to different venues. Also couple months ago, eBay launched a survey which had several questions about “paying for customer service“. I have ...
eBay decided to keep Half.com open. So what was all that hassle for? Thousands of sellers spent days to figure out how to transfer their inventory and listings to other sites including eBay. Then they dedice to keep Half.com open, this is a very immature move by eBay management. Here's an article about Half.com; eBay will keep Half.com subsidiary open SAN JOSE, Calif. -- EBay Inc. announced Thursday that it will keep its Half.com subsidiary open indefinitely, scrapping previous plans to shutter the ...
This is great news for Yahoo Store Owners who would like to automate their Froogle submissions. Somacon has launched a Yahoo! Store product feed submission service to Froogle. The service is web-based and fully-automated, as compared to existing submission products that are stand-alone software packages or custom services. Listing products in Froogle, Google's product search engine, is one method of search engine optimization for online merchants. (PRWEB) September 7, 2004 -- Somacon is now offering ...
Free Auction Scripts, Internet Business Owners Community Portal FreeAuctionScripts.com is my current project. While we were hanging out on different discussion boards with different eBay sellers, we came up with an idea of starting our own portal where internet business owners can discuss their problems, ask their questions and share their experiences. Let me tell you little bit more about Free Auction Scripts and what we have on the site: Free Auction Scripts eBay Cross Promotion Tool With eBay ...
Stanley Kubrick is my favorite director. I have watched all of the Kubrick movies several times and I wanted to share some information about Kubrick, here on my blog. STANLEY KUBRICK : LIFE IN PICTURES Few filmmakers’ work is so instantly recognizable as that of Stanley Kubrick. Beautiful, precise composition. Elaborate tracking shots. Powerful acting. Deep, thought-provoking themes. Kubrick put his unique stamp and vision on every film he made. Despite his relatively small output, probably ...

I can’t believe I am writing this, or that I am having to code this way. It seems a major client of ours refuses to use IE. So out major webapp has to be compliant with Netscape and Mozilla Firefox. Man does that make for problems. Although the DOM should be the same, it seems MS has of course, added a bunch of custom stuff that works in IE. Yeah .NET is supposed to determine the browser type and output the proper html. This does work, but it’s not the case when it comes to using javascript! ...
I read a pretty interesting article today.... How Microsoft Lost the API War. I'd have to say a was a little dismayed. Like most of the developers I know, I am currently developing in ASP.NET. I have probaly been using ASP.NET for the last 2 years or so, before that it was all Windows applications. I had the opportunity to write some distributed Windows Applications upon the release of Visual Studio .NET, but since then its been all web. The majority of my skillset lies in SQL databases, middle-tier ...

I hate to say this, but I think that the browser wars are back - and back in a big way. The reason - well, I think partly for these little thoughts and concerns that are going around my head today and yesterday. I am having more and more problems browsing around the Internet as time goes on it seems and I am getting slightly annoyed about it - so I am thinking - “I wonder what it will be like to use THIS browser here?”. I was a big Netscape user till Netscape 4. Once IE4 came out - I ...
OK, yesterday somebody on weblogs.asp.net or gwb pointed out PGtGM. Whoever it was I am really thankfull. Sorry for not remembering who it was. I saw the link yesterday opened it up in the browser and went home. So today I have no clue who linked to it, and a too lazy to go through the gazillion feeds looking to see who pointed it out. Again thank you for pointing that out. Anyways Thimal and I were musing today how we could get the GMail Notification into the Trillain mail notification Window. Basically ...
I am the lead architect for a component (specifically the presentation layer) on our team. I have 1 other person helping me with implementation. One day we had to add a new feature. I designed a solution and handed it off to him and he came back and asked “why do we need it to do this? It wasn't in the requirements?” I responded by saying something along the lines of “because eventually someone will ask for it”. In fact, I find myself saying that over and over again. Now here's ...

Ack, it's been a while since I've had a chance to make an entry here, but I've been heads down in a project for a major Santa Clara company.... I've got a stack of tips and techniques to share, but I'll be doling them out slowly as I have a chance to recode them. (Most of my blog code ideas come from client work. However to avoid any IP or NDA issues, I recode all code samples on my own time, with my own machine before posting them here.) Ok, so here's the tip for today.... You know how when you ...

Very interesting article about xml scripting in Javascript 2.0 a.k.a Ecmascript 4

Anybody out there knows the expected release date of JS2 ?
That would be killer for clientside proccessing wiht xmlhttp remoting.

Btw, very similar to XEN concepts huh?

 

Along the same theme as my last post.... A lot of people don't realize just how easy it is to create their own “Modify Page” link/button/whatever.... All you really need is something that can have an onClick event.... For example, here's a “Modify Page” button, drop this into a Content Editor web part, strip off the web part frame and you're done... <input id="btnModifyPage" type="button" class="UserButton" onClick="javascript:MSOWebP... ...
Besides looking at the candidate's issues and how they hold a pen or something of that matter, I usually head out to their websites and take a look at the code they are putting out there as well. It do find it interesting in how and what technologies people use when using technology as a tool. My review here of Presidential code is by no means saying who you should vote for - I stay away from those conversations - but use it as you wish - that's all! My first stop was in Texas country! 1) Republican ...
I recently got this game, Links 2004, and was quite excited to give it a round. Overall, it is fun game (though friends tell me to check out Outlaw Golf). The graphics are superb and it is fun to change the weather to something rather annoying for the player - or if you are the one sitting around on a rainy cold day, then giving yourself some sunshine. The people in the game move and hit the ball quite realistically. You can also play all sorts of famous courses around the world which is exciting ...
Don't you ever stop for a moment to think why on earth do you have to do so many different things in so many dialects to build what it is supposed to be a simple application? Code C# on the server sideCode ASP on the design sideCode HTML on the UI sideCode Javascript on the client sideCode SQL on the data sideCode XML on the service side Wouldn't it be good if we could do all of that in one and only one way? I know of one company that will not do that, for their motto is to divide and conquer. I ...
I have two articles on the front page of the ASP.NET Developer Center on MSDN. The first: Using JavaScript Along with ASP.NET - I used to be a big JavaScript user during my ASP 3.0 days and I was one day thinking why I didn't use JavaScript as much with ASP.NET 1.0/1.1. I think for me, was that it wasn't as easy to use as it was with ASP 3.0 and I looked at how I would accomplish the same sorts of tasks I did in the past, but now with the use of server controls. The Forgotten Controls - HTML Server ...
