This is a post after a long hibernation. Often in our product we need worker threads performing a given action when signaled. Thread pool threads (modified ThreadPool class, not the Microsoft supplied one) may not be ideal for this as these are rather foreground, "active" operations in contrast to the background callback model ThreadPool usually projects. ......

Mr. Bugsy Elusive We have a C# client and a Local COM server hosting a VoIP stack. We use COM interop. for API and events to the COM server. Today after some changes, when we started to load testing the system a nasty crash happened. From initial observation it's look like some kind of Heap Corruption(may be leaked from stack boundary and stuff like ......

Its very tough to get into every possible part of modern software development process :- Debugging, Testing, Building, performance Optimization etc. Pardon me for skipping some sub-processes. But I was never hyper-aware about performance issues and It was always an afterthought of development process. But in the last couple of weeks I was continuously ......

In a nice sunday afternoon I opened a MC++ sorry oldy MFC project in VS.NET.So far so good. Now i was going to insert a merely innocent breakpoint before firing the program. Mouse cursor changes to hourglass changes to infamous BSOD(Blue Screen Of Death for Windows). I ignored the memory dump and rebooted but Windows XP was unable to start. It seems ......

For a long tome I kept myself away from this wonderful but ugly looking tool as I was the die-hard fan of a Compuware(Numega then) masterpiece - SoftIce. Hey I still have it installed inside of a Win98 Virtual Box in my XP host. Though SoftIce has got its new incarnation - DriverStudio, not the WinDbg. If you haven't downloaded it, get it Debugging ......

Remember the awesome AI RoboForm. Its the smartest of all web form fillers exist on earth. In case you haven't used it you can found it here. From password memorization (I'm extremely shaky about trusting any third party software expecially those deals with password, CCs etc.), to secure transfer of user data profile to removable devices by Pass2Go ......

Well the "brain-brush" series continues. One of my favourite binary tree question would be given a preorder and inorder traversal strings write a function to build the tree. Most of the rubbish text books provide non-programmatic solution to this and rest append it as a to-do. Today I will proceed step-by-step to solve this and that too with same ingredients ......

During the last week I was brushing up my Data Structure fundamentals. It was great to get back the days of C style pointers, link list, binary trees etc. But at the same time I want to play around the anonymous delegates of C# 2.0. Both my wishes were granted...My data structures were based on C# generics. The TreeNode structure and the action delegate ......

Guys I was busy in some HLD for past two weeks or so. I'm back now into my favourite blogspace - GWB. Yesterday when our 64 bit porting team is working for the immediate 64 bit release of our product, they came to me for suggestion on a topic which I think worth discussing. While they are happily ported unmanaged C++ code, they were facing some difficulties ......
