I finally implemented an idea I came up with a while back. Cloud source code backup! I configured Wuala to cloud store (encrypted) my source code directory. It allows you to filter directory names and file names (with wildcard), so I took out images, EXEs, DLLs etc, so it is pretty much just source code […]
Normally if you browse the GAC folder in Windows Explorer you get a special UI. If you actually want access to the DLL file you can run the command (from Start menu): %windir%\assembly\GAC_MSIL From <http://stackoverflow.com/questions/714907/how-to-extract-an-assembly-from-the-gac> This will load Windows Explorer in a file viewing mode instead of the normal UI.

I finally managed to get a version of Linux working on Hyper-V that isn’t horribly slow. This is good, because Hyper-V does not play with VMWare Player or VirtualBox. You need to reboot and disable Hyper-V from the boot menu to run other virtual machines when the Hyper-V feature is installed, which is rather annoying, […]
I got a cheap deal on a Windows Surface (unfortunately without the rather pricey Type keyboard cover that costs nearly as much as what I paid for the tablet) as a present for someone and have been trying to configure it for them. Not having used a Surface before, or any tablet really, here are […]

During testing, Studio Coast had great support and I […]

I tried to download an Intel x86 System Image, but I was getting the error File Not Found… sysimg_x86-16_r01.zip (Access is denied). Running the Android SDK program as Administrator on Windows seemed to resolve this problem.
I was getting Unauthorized Access and Access is denied in IIS Express or Development Web Server all of a sudden. Turns out it was because my source control made the directory read only and this seemed to be causing the problem. I also seemed to have to restart IIS for it to start working again.
