2 Year ago I write a post here to give my view on Mysql and it’s nuget packages http://geekswithblogs.net/anirugu/archive/2013/11/04/donrsquot-use-mysql-.net-connector-here-is-why.aspx

 

Nuget package is much better way to fix the dll. Just type the command in console and reference has been added to your C# project very easily. You don’t need to do anything to update it every time.

Visual studio make this process easier.

 

From last few days I got a trouble. When I share with my code with other it’s not work on another machine which have Mysql Connector installed on the system.

Everytime I take there code and compiled on my machine and give them back it’s not working there. Nuget installed the nuget packages again and it’s use nuget packages reference there and it’s installed on there machine which make trouble on c# to run them.

 

The code will be compiled, Warning will be shown in Error in visual studio. But because Connector have a DLL installed in GAC it will make issues that “not matched“.

Now to fix this issues try this trick.

 

Open the csproj file of your project. Search for mysql

 

replace it with this code, Previously it’s referenced from packages folder, Now if you are making reference from bin folder it will work.

 

<Reference Include="MySql.Data, Version=6.9.5.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c5687fc88969c44d, processorArchitecture=MSIL">
     <SpecificVersion>False</SpecificVersion>
     <HintPath>..\projectname\bin\MySql.Data.dll</HintPath>
     <Private>True</Private>
   </Reference>

projname is your own projectname. Now it’s called the dll from your bin. Change the path according to your project location.

Now open the packages.config and where it’s stored the packages settings. Now remove the mysql reference from there but cut the line that have mysql.

If you have attached many project to your project do same on that too if they have mysql too.

 

Now it fixed. Now VS will not download the dll from Nuget again and again. Now they are calling it from Bin folder.

 

Yahooooooo. Now Nuget can’t burn my minutes to just fix them again and again.

On error page you will see something like this

 

On error page you will see something like this

LOG: Attempting download of new URL file:///C:/Windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v4.0.30319/Temporary ASP.NET Files/

 

Open this folder, replace every / to \  because Windows understand the folder different way. Delete everything and compile again. For me it’s working.

 

If you still found this trouble try to update packages from this answer

As a ASP.NET Developer when a C# developer meet another kind of developer (Ruby, PHP and anything else) than first thing we hate is

He can choose any kind of IDE. He can use PHP in Sublime text and sublime text code are able to debug the PHP code. Many kind of gap between us and these people will be filled by Microsoft in upcoming years.

Now we can write code in Sublime text that is about C# language. It’s not awesome as VS IDE experience.

 

In 2014 I don’t add too many bugs to connect.Microsoft.com , I thing that place need to be retired. That sound old thing that need more polish to get it worked.

Many bugs that I posted in 2014 has been closed without any message. When I say how, Got response that it’s has been fixed.

So a bug that has been opened from 15, 30 days suddenly closed and got hear nothing before getting it closed. this kind of thing threat to the person who continuously find a bug that can improve the stability of software and found a various kind of changes that improve workflow.

 

The Open-source software Like Firefox and other take bugs seriously. For Example Posting bugs to Firefox is better than for Visual studio. At-least dozen of people come and respond me that is not work directly for Mozilla but on connect.Microsoft.com I feel like I have gone to government place where nobody care or care less seriously.

when Microsoft is releasing Community edition of Visual studio 2013 I thing to write a post here to mention that Visual studio express missing many features that should be available to a web-developer that is using Express version of Visual studio. They release it and I want to say “Thanks you for that”.

 

In last year Microsoft open-source the .net Framework. If I thing clearly I didn’t get enough time to play with stuff released in 2014. What I hope is getting more active in community for ASP.NET MVC programming.

 

In last days I hear that Microsoft going to going to kill IE. I have no wonder because IE  is a software that mostly wastage of Time for web-developer. I hear from people who got there project late just because IE.

2 year ago I write this post http://geekswithblogs.net/anirugu/archive/2013/03/02/how-to-write-css-only-for-internet-explorer--10.aspx and got too much traffic for just one thing that is broken in IE.

 

IE has 2 impact on web-developer’s life. One is they make money because of IE, This is skill that you can troubleshoot IE or not, secondly it’s bad when it’s make website not running in good way.

 

Forget it, I hope Microsoft will fix this trouble better.

2 year ago I bought Windows 8 phone Lumia 520 and it’s not running good as I expect. The hardware is good but software is crap. Yes, I hate it for many thing. I recently read on some blog that in future I can run android app in Windows phone. If it’s gone done it’s can be very good for Windows phone platform.

http://www.bluestacks.com/ has done it already for Windows OS. if it’s come to Windows phone platform it will be best.

 

Few days ago Github has been blocked in India for they have ISIS content. Now Government has unblock the site.  These thing will make no impact because If site is genuine then more people will come to protest.

 

I read all over the internet that in future everything will become packages. The .net framework for Desktop programming will be different than the one who are used for web-programming. That thing sound cool.

 

Another cool thing will be Spartan that Is New Browser from Microsoft according to news over the internet. Let’s see how people take bugs in Spartan. As me I always ready to found bugs in everything (any kind of apps). It’s may doesn’t sound cool but help to make a software better.

So Maybe VS15 and Win10 will launch this year (if it’s not going late). As everything has been disclosed on internet nothing make any exclamation to people because everyone know earlier something about that.

 

So only thing I need to focus in 2015 is ASP.NET programming to learn something better and be more productive. Yeah since VS community 2015 will be free ,I  can fill more bugs to connect.microsoft.com This is my fantasy with Microsoft and I enjoy it.

I hope this year will be wonderful to everyone.

Happy coding year 2015.

Wish you a very happy new year,

Don’t worry, I know today is 2015- Jan 3 and I am late. np Smile



Google mail and Outlook is two most used software for reading emails. From last few days I got a problem.

This plugin will help us to achieve this goal now.

 

You can simply inspect everything that you want to hide.

 

For Outlook I do

#RightRailContainer{
  display:none!important;
}
.ContentRight{
width: 1160px;
}

 

and for Google mail I do

 

.Bu.yM{
  display:none;
}
.Bu.y3{
  display:none;
}

 

Both hide the right panel and now I can read my mail without using scroller  to left and right.

 

For the Url option you need to set Urls on Domain live.com

Less than six months ago I see a thing like Internet explorer 7 developer channel. It’s look like quite impressive for developer. Now Microsoft has killed it.

Now here is the update from Microsoft

“To continue previewing the latest IE web platform, join the Windows Insider Program and install the Windows 10 Technical Preview. Once you join the Windows Insider Program, you’ll be subscribed to receive all the latest Windows 10 and IE preview builds as soon as they’re available or you can try RemoteIE if you want to run IE from any platform.

What’s new in the November 12th update.

We look forward to your feedback!”

 

If I move to Windows 10 Nobody will provide solution from Microsoft support team If anything goes wrong for me, They will say “We don’t provide support Alpha or developer build”.

So this is a nice way to force people to use something (even user not want to) or just killing product.

 

The developer channel is no longer work for me that I installed on my PC. When I open it “this developer channel build expire. Try to update to latest“.

 

I am attaching here image for a question arise from comment that remoteIE can work. I tried but it’s not worked for me.

Here is my experience with Big bazaar. Big bazaar is one the totally bullshit service. I have experienced with Their Agra and Noida sector 18 both shops.

 

One day When I go Agra The person who take the luggage before going inside the shop talk bullshit. We never gave up and going inside the shop. By mistake I gone to them in Agra and that days too much rush there. I want to say WTH are this.

 

This is crap service running by ass***** . Everyone work there work like lazy and silly. They even not have teach how to talk and work when too rush.

 

There are very few people who work seriously (temporarily) but when you go again you never see them again because this Big bazaar is made by stupid for stupid.

 

So that time I never gave again to Big bazaar Agra store.

 

in 27 July 2014 I go to Noida GIP mall Big bazaar. The one of the duffer work there talk like idiot. I thing to complain this on next day by toll free number and call. When I call the number he say in middle of the call “I can’t hear you”.

Yesterday I go again and I found those bullshit. Three other person crying next to me who want in line for just take there luggage and go away from that site.

 

This is totally bullshit. When there CEO gave a nonsense statement on Newspaper I thing he must see what happen in there store. he doesn’t gave any discount and there service is totally rough and run by maybe donkey of people.

 

They say blah blah when Flipkart and other company gave Hugh Discount. So I didn’t care about Big bazzaar anymore.

 

Conclusion  :- Big bazaar is totally bullshit service. If you really want to buy anything from the offline store then better go to Vishal Mega Mart. I have gone there and they have a list on the door where they compare their own price with other.

 

On billing they handle 2-3 people at same time so he take less time in billing. They doesn’t have drama kind of service for luggage. People work there are more feel like human then animal at Big bazaar.

 

And you want totally better service then go to Best Price store. You need to make a card (which can easily made). In Best price there is no big rush and service is much better compare to other. I didn’t hate Vishal mega mart because everything do there is normal.

 

So Quality and performancewise Best price is best, Vishal Mega mart and third is Crappy Big bazaar.

Few months ago I got my Visual studio express got running Web-essentials 2013 extension. I find it awesome for me since I do most of my work related to web-programming.

 

Now there is a good news from Microsoft that they have a new thing for us called “Community edition”.

 

The good thing in it is it is able to run extension that is same available to paid version like professional, premium and ultimate.

 

I didn’t have tried it so can’t say too much but look here http://www.visualstudio.com/news/vs2013-community-vs

it’s look too interesting.

 

Have a nice day,

Last year I bought Nokia Lumia 520 and it’s not going too good. I have discussed it earlier on my blog . I end up gave my phone to someone else. Even 8.1 is out The cortana is not out here in India. I didn’t sure what kind of crap Microsoft and nokia both together make.

 

Nokia 220 have a lot of issues for a common user. This is worst interface ,hardware, software available at the price of 2600 INR (that is the cost of the phone).

 

Nokia 220 have a lot of issue.

 

1. Cost too much, On same cost I can got a basic smartphone from Micromax and Karbonn. karbonn phone have better battery backup then this Nokia 220 crap.

I need to recharge my phone every 1-2 day. My low cost karbonn need recharge on every Saturday.

2. This phone is even doesn’t support .m4a music play (nor it convert if it not supported it as I Nokia asha 311 does in past).

OK, I thing any small phone have music playback feature. I didn’t found anything that can be easily handled. I try to play my m4a collection but it doesn’t work . it’s only take .mp3.

 

3. You can’t edit the contact. This phone have Facebook that you can use through mobile Data from your SIM.

When I click on contact there is a option to Add, Delete but where is EDIT. I can copy to SIM but contact never can list from SIM.

The best thing to maintain contact is save them in SIM and time by time when you put your SIM in Datacard you can backup them in your data-card memory. I found it useful but this phone is not list any contact from SIM. I need to copy it to phone. IF you make copy from Phone to SIM it will duplicate the number with then name end with 1,2, 3.

 

4. A totally piece of CRAP. ( I found nothing useful in this phone). The time of Nokia has been fade-away.

 

Since Xiomi, Asus and many other brand come out their in India, I didn’t recommended crap like nokia to anyone.

Last week Microsoft kill Nokia X series (Android). I am very sure about this news since they have their own OS Windows 8.

In windows phone 8 (Even after 8.1) You can’t seek the mp3 file when you run mp3 file on the phone . This kind of crap can be only seen with Microsoft and it’s own nokia phone. They didn’t have YouTube either.

 

Bye Bye Nokia (AKA Microsoft Mobile), I will never going to buy any other phone from you again. Now we have better option.
