I was updating an older application with some changes. I typically use C# MVC for my current projects, however this was a web forms app using the 2.0 framework. I had to make a few minor edits. One in particular was to add a State dropdown list. I realized that I did not want to type in all that information. So I did the quick Google for State Dropdown. ......

If you are in need of a great way to detect if a mobile or tablet is viewing your site I suggest looking at the MobileESP project. SITE Link - MobileESPYou can read more about how I used this at http://jimiz.net/2013/02/mo... project has both downloadable scripts for most languages and also a rich API that can be used. The API allows ......

After publishing two apps to the Windows Store (GUID Generator) and (IPaddress Info) I learned a lot about the publishing process. I had error messages with both apps in certification regarding the "Privacy Policy".When publishing I received the "Your app doesn’t meet requirement 4.1." message. The issue was that I did have a privacy policy but it was ......

New release of a windows 8 store app. This app was built with C# / XAML. It allows you to generate a number of GUIDs and then copy / past or email them to yourself.View the app directly - http://apps.microsoft.com/w... application. It was a good experience adding this application to the App ......

I have been working with the oomph tool kit and see how this can be a valuable tool. It can work well for corporate sites and areas where people need to share contact and events. It really does make the process of posting an event easy and allowing for a great way for people to add these events to their calendars (multiple types). It also makes adding ......

I stumbled upon this site that is pretty interesting. It shows some detail that I was looking for on how sites market keywords and some possible spending trends. It is somewhat accurate. I was able to benchmark the site against a few of the clients that I have done work with. (Keyword spy) http://www.keywordspy.com/o... I ......

I had the chance to try out the built in backup from windows 7. Not bad, I may have to start using that instead of the scripts and tools I currently use. I was impressed with what I saw, so I setup the backup and will try it for a few weeks. Here is a great article showing all the steps. I found it was pretty straight forward to use with my network ......

I realized after a discussion at work today that I don't view news and information sites in a browser that often. I find that I use an RSS reader more than actually going to the sites. I did not think about this too much until a co-worker was discussing Twitter as a service does not get that much direct traffic (people going to their site) most twitter ......

I love the new version of IIS. One of the great elements of Server 2008 is that it has IIS7 installed. A great aspect of the new IIS is that you can now run very common applications (wordpress, and photo gallery) on Windows. These applications are PHP based and typically are hosted on Linux Servers. IIS 7 allows for you to host these applications on ......

I am not a big fan of ring tones. My cell phone is normally the old fashion ring of the 50's and on vibrate. I was reading some blogs this morning and came across this url http://www.makeownringtone.... and gave it a try. I'm not sure I'll use the ring tone I made but, it was fun and would be a better alternative than purchasing the 4 dollar ring tones ......

I finally made the full migration over to windows 7. It is fast and uses less memory than Vista. I now am running it on my primary machine. I was on Vista x64 and I have found Windows 7 x64 to be more responsive. To make the migration work I used a drive image software and a spare hard drive. I first installed Win 7 on a smaller 60 gig drive to make ......

The current project I am starting we are debating using a win form client vs a web client. I feel like I have done this argument (discussion) many times. In the past I have always felt that you had more control with a winform. Now with new tools such as ajax,jquery, and css, we are able to make our web applications seem like win forms. Which do you ......

Recently had a client have issues with their WSS site and needed to restore the content DB. I took a look at their server and could not find the DB's. After a little investigation we discovered that they had attached to the Embedded Edition of sql instead of the Standard edition that was installed. What was strange about this is the way the embedded ......

I was recently asked what tools do I use on a regular basis. As I thought about the question I realized that I have a heavy load of links, apps, and tools that I use frequently for administration of my sites. I decided I would put a list of these tools together for other administrators. My next series will contain downloadable tools Online tools - Tools ......
