This post is particularly gonna be of use for my Muslim brothers and sisters. Ever since I came to Sweden, I was perplexed about how I can find the correct direction of Qibla without having any compass and with the date and time where the Sun comes right above Kaaba, many many days away. So I did some searching over the internet and I came to this very useful tool someone made to find the correct direction of Kaaba (Qibla) from anywhere in the world. It’s an application built using Google Maps and what it simply does is that it shows you the direction of Kaaba with it being the center point. I really appreciate this application since I had the exact kind of idea in my mind. Without any further delays, you should have a look at http://www.qiblalocator.com/
Hope you find it useful.
Today we had a funny situation, my friend generated some sql from his custom code and it needed to have a ‘Go’ statement in between,, because it had create procedure statements in it. So after a bit of googling, I found out that you can use Microsoft Word for it and use the ^p character in the Find-replace dialog to convert some text like we did. Find Create Replace with” Go ^p Create
hope some of you might find it useful someday!
howdy every one,
ah, well, feeling very sleepy right now and I’m just sittin here at my desk upgrading my VS .NET to SP 1. Just heard from my colleague that hey! just one blog in whole September? Just got a deadline tommorow and well here I am sitting with this dumb thing taking so much time So anyway I thought well, atleast there’s some one out there who cares about lookin into my blabbin. So I thought why not write a blog just to blog. So! how’s everyone doing out there han?
Tell me about it!
well, yesterday I was to format my C drive and for that some dumb nut just gave me an idea of formatting it by booting the computer up with a Windows 98 CD, starting with the help of CD ROM Support and formatting the God damn drive. What happend is that it just slipped out of my mind that my C was actually an NTFS formatted drive. So when I gave it the command
it was actually formatting my D drive which had all of my data, my projects, songs, games and everything.
So now I’m enjoy a nice cool day in the office, sitting all ends screwd up getting everything installed again.
I’ll count that in as one of my worst days at Vizteck.
Ever wondered how to get special characters like ©, ® or ™ in your document? You don’t need any special software installed. Windows has it’s own inbuilt character map utility, which you can use to identify individual special characters. Using copy and paste you can insert them into your document. However, this is a very slow procedure, and it is much quicker to use the ALT key for those characters which are used frequently.
For example, [CTRL]+[ALT]+[C] gives ©. Similarly, [CTRL]+[ALT]+[R] gives ® and [CTRL]+[ALT]+[T] gives ™ .
Special characters are usually entered using the numeric keypad and a 4-digit ANSI code. Each character is allocated a particular slot, and the character in that slot can be inserted by pressing the corresponding key on the keyboard, or by holding down the Alt key and tapping 0 followed by ‘nnn’ on the numeric keypad where ‘nnn’ is the 3-digit code for each special character.
For e.g., to get the pound symbol (£):
- Press and hold the [ALT] key
- Type 0163 on the numeric keypad on the right
- Release the [ALT] key to see the symbol
