.NET DAD .NET, once more... General
March is Mine.
I am going to speak about Themes and Skins in ASP.NET 2.0 in our local .NET user's group ( on the third Tuesday of March (21st of March, that is). I have been looking forward to this for a long time. With my busy schedule recently, I have not had enough time to dig deeply into VS2005 and ASP.NET 2.0. And this would give me an excuse to do so ......

Oh Yeah! It was Miguel Castro at our local user group meeting (, speaking about buildingWeb Controls. It was indeed an interesting session, with Miguel. He was really prepared and was really active. Most of the members in our group are either beginners or are getting into .NET. As Miguel told (or complained) that building web controls are an area which most developers (or the powers-to-be, for that matter) do not like to swim in. I get complains from fellow developers around ......

ADA Compliancy and Windows Applications
Well, I have been developing web applications for about 6-7 years now. ADA compliancy struck my day to day life during the last project I worked, for Department of Public Welfare, called HCSIS (Home and Community Services Information System). It is one of the best projects I have worked on. I have a special place for this project in me, as it is an application which has changed more lives. Back to what I intend to talk about - ADA. For the uninitiated, ADA stands for American Disability Act. As a ......

Can you teach me .NET?
He asked. And I said yes! With having immense experience as a visiting faculty in my TCS years, I knew (As Tommy Lee Jones says, “100 years back man KNEW that earth was flat!”) that it would be a piece of cake. I was wrong (again!). These friends of mine (2 others joined later) come from a very different background. Mainframes! So, the question was WHERE WOULD I START? I can go on for hours blabbering HTML, or talk OO concepts and dive into Design Patterns. Even though HTML and OO concepts ......

Are Best Practices only for those who code?

Are they? The best practices for .NET tells us not to use Hungarian Notation. The books that should apply this ethics and relay this to the world are showing reluctance, it seems.

A new venture!
I might sound too excited, but it is true. Every new project is a venture for me. I get always excited and motivated with every challenge; however small it be. Beginning next Monday, I would be on a new venture (:-)) with a different client. The role is as a Technical Architect Specialist. I think this would let me see the project(s) in a more mature angle and I would have a different perspective.

One Hell of an Error!!!
Oh...Ya! I am frustrated!!! No, No, not with my boss :-) My home computer got some wild adwares, that is causing me not to open any applications! The x732e7800 error! &^@%#&^%@! I spend almost half of my Sunday trying to fix it... downloading some antivirus and antispyware stuff. One thing I downloaded and used was EWIDO Security Suite. It caught almost 600 (you bet!) adwares! But still the error would not disappear. Then I googled today morning and Karen had the same problem couple days ......
