Numerous articles and books have been written about proper project management techniques and how to steer a project from start to finish. Many of them offer help in maneuvering a floundering project back on track. What is mind-boggling, however, is that despite receiving so much help and advice, so many IT projects are considered failures, even those that were delivered on time and on budget. Furthermore, if you add the project evaluation criteria to measure the success of IT projects, it’s likely that the list of success stories would shrink even further.
One reason for all this dissatisfaction is that many customers initially don’t even know what they want, or more … more
Recently I upgraded my DotNetNuke installation from 3.x to 4.5.3. Upgrade went smooth but I had tough time making dasblog work under DNN (running on virtual directory under DNN).I googled for solution nearly full day but didn't get the exact solution.

Software designers adapt the Pattern solution to their specific project. Patterns use a formal approach to describing a design problem, its proposed solution, and any other factors that might affect the problem or the solution. A successful Pattern should have established itself as leading to a good solution in three previous projects or situations.

I have recently moved my blog from community server to dasBlog. While setting up google Adsense ads on the site, I was caught up in a specific requirement as in where to put the ads. Google suggests that for high CTR ratio, ads should be placed just above the content and this left me searching for ways to put adsense in start of First Post's body content.
A simple way to implement this was modify your latest post every time you write a post ... cumbersome huh?? Not only cumbersome, this also invalidates your RSS as the feeds doesn't allow <_script_> tag in the XML. Looked around little more thinking that I might not be the first one having this kinda requirement ...but to my … more

After un-installing SQL Server 2005 Beta version, I started facing issues with my SQL 2000 installation and it was shooting an strange error...
SQLDMO has not been registered, please re-run SQL Server setup and contact your system administrator?.
Today I ran into an issue with one of my DNN sites... I changed site settings and set the login page to one of the tabs which resulted in no access to login page for me and my users...I tried some of the solutions on the web but none of the earlier worked because I had removed friendly URLs host setting.
To get the access back try adding ctl=login to the end of a query string it forces a load of the login dialog eg http://www. mysite.com/default.aspx?ctl=login . If this doesn't work, try this to get around the problem http://www.mysite.com/Home/ tabid/<36>/ctl/Login/Default.aspx (change <36> with home tab id)
If this also doesn't work, John Mitchell has also posted a solution … more

The string type represents a string of Unicode characters. string is an alias for System.String in the .NET Framework. C# defines a number of aliases for CLR types which can be used interchangably or even mixed together.
eg. string x = new System.String(' ', 5);
Although string is a reference type, the equality operators (== and !=) are defined to compare the values of string objects, not references. This makes testing for string equality more intuitive.
Some more defined C# aliases are:
