Toying with Firefox

May 29, 2006 2 comments
I am trying Firefox after a long break.
It is now really really cool, I like firefox because of its extensions.
Cool features of Firefox, which I like
  • Tabbed browsing
  • User CSS (Customize the look and feel of a site using CSS)
  • Greasemonkey extension (Customize the site behaviour / UI using user javascript)
  • IE Tabs (Open IE only sites within Firefox using the IE engine. Yes, still there are a lot of sites which work only with IE – My project inclusive) 

Opera is a close competitor though.

A utility which i wanted since the release of VS.NET 2005.
Why didn’t I write it?
I was thinking of it for this
  • Open project in VS.NET 2005
  • Refactor in 2005
  • Open the project back in VS.NET 2003

Murphy’s Laws of .NET

May 8, 2006 Leave a comment
I have written Murphy’s Laws of .NET based on my previous experience with .NET (using VB.NET & C#):
1. When coding .NET application, whatever happens, behave as though you meant it to happen.
2. When you get to the point where you really understand those new features of .NET, it’s probably obsolete.
3. For every feature in .NET, there is an equal and opposite malfunction.
4. There will be six ways to do same thing in .NET, and you always discover that you have choose the worst one, but only at the final stage of project.
5. A .NET program will always do what you tell it to do, but rarely what you want to do.
6. He who laughs last probably uses simplest architecture of developing .NET application.
7. A complex .NET application that does not work is invariably found to have evolved from a simpler VB 6.0 system that worked just fine.
8. The number one cause of any .NET based problem is another .NET based solution.
Do you identify yourself somewhere in these laws?
