I've worked out how to get my linux based Netbeans PHP development machine to behave much like what happens when you create a new ASP.Net project in Visual Studio. Firstly create multiple PHP project in Netbeans,say for example mysite1 and mysite2. Next edit the apache2/sites-enabled/000-d... file and add two virtualhost sections as below <VirtualHost ......

Cool little trick to determine which sql query which is taking a long time to execute, first while offending query is running from another machine do EXEC sp_who2 Locate the SPID responsible via Login, DBName and ProgramName columns, then do DBCC INPUTBUFFER (<SPID>) The offending query will be in the EventInfo column. This is a great little time ......

If you have a web site using Umbraco and you wish to add the ability to comment on submitted articles then UComment is a quite brilliant little package, the functionality can be added in no time at all. My problem was that the web site in question uses Umbraco 4.0.x.x and I couldn’t upgrade to the most recent (4.7 at the time of writing) due to not ......

Three months of hard work paid off today and I scored 982 out of 1000, would love to know on which question I lost those 18 points…



.. maybe / maybe not. I've collected / created lots of colour scheme .vssettings xml files over the years, here are some of my favourites... enjoy! All files are guaranteed to only contain settings for the All Settings->Options->En... and Colours so the rest of your visual studio settings remain untouched. All files are in VS2008 ......

Just discovered this great piece of free software from mythicsoft, it is a cut down version of a product called File Locator Pro. It is clearly aimed at software developers and is great for finding files which contain certain strings / lines of code. Prior to finding this program I had been using source code modified from http://www.codeproject.com/... ......

Following on from this. I've noticed that it only gives you to the second accuracy. If your software is capable of making more than one file per second, the sort order will be date/time to the second then alphanumerically on the filename. Not ideal if your filenames are guids, the following class gives date/time sort accuracy of 100 nanosecond intervals ......

Given the time (nearly 2 days!) it's taken me to get to the bottom of this I thought it worthy of a blog post hopefully saving someone the hours of frustration i've just been through. I know my FTP code works very well, around 50 different customer sites with very few support calls confirm this, on this one installation however my xml documents would ......

A pet hate of mine (one of many :-j) is bloated software, especially device drivers you know the sort of thing installing a printer requiring hundreds of mb disk space and adding system tray applets (HP?), I collectively refer to this stuff as shiteware something needs to be done, it's getting worse. This (http://www.physorg.com/new... ......

Today marks the second birthday of my xbox 360 and it's still going strong.  Since day one it's stood vertically and hasn't been moved an inch.  In these days of rrod ridden horror stories I thought i'd share...
