Manually Installing The Latest Firefox in Kubuntu : A Cleaner InIf you've enjoyed this blog, please consider picking up a copy of my Ubuntu book, Instant Ubuntu. Thanks for visiting! So I’ve decided that Konqueror is just not the web browser that some people want it to be. Call me spoiled / ruined for having spent so much time on Firefox, but I just can’t use it to be as productive as I want to be so I’ve installed Firefox on my Kubuntu installation. For those of you that are in similar situations keep reading and find out how to manually install Firefox within KDE. Now, I am perfectly aware that I can download and install the Firefox package simply and easily using Adept or aptitude. Installing Firefox Manually Update: I found in some additional testing that using the following command *just* installed Firefox and none of the other packages so.. you take your pick: (I normally use aptitude to install which installed optional packages as well). sudo apt-get install firefox Download the latest version of Firefox from the Mozilla web page. Done.
Know Dot Net - How to Create a Numeric Only TextBox ControlHave you ever needed a Windows.Forms.TextBox control that only accepted letters, or that only accepted numbers? Well, the other day, I needed one and after some playing around, I decided that it's something I may well need in the future. Taking the simple logic contained below, you can easily subclass the Winows.Forms.TextBox control and stick it in your toolbox for later use. <Note that for the sake of illustration, I created two extra Booleans to use in the evaluation...you could save yourself two lines of code by including them directly>The use above will allow all valid numbers as well as decimals. To flip this around, if you wanted to allow only Letters in your text box... the following should do it for you: Now, you could easily combine these types of methods with some more sophisticated methodology, allowing for overloads for instance, to create a textbox that validates the input and changes color according to certain specifications:

Quadcharge universal charging station - gizmag ArticleTidy solution to charging multiple devices Image Gallery (5 images) August 28, 2007 The Quadcharge is an inexpensive, all in one hub that allows you to charge four devices simultaneously whilst decreasing the number of AC adaptors that need to be connected to a power source, while at the same time cleaning up the tangled web of cords that otherwise pervade your kitchen bench-top or home office space. View all The streamlined, simple design of the Quadcharge is aimed at hiding all of the wires normally dangling from your wall by using only one outgoing power cord.

This simple solution to charging all mobile gadgets costs US$49.95 and comes with a lifetime warranty. Related Articles
One of the regularly requested features for AppHarbor is a way to get full backups from SQL Server databases there. The official line so far has been to use the AppHarbor-SqlServerBulkCopy tool to bulk copy the data from the hosted server to a local copy. This requires you to have an empty target database into which to squirt the data. I’ve found a more convenient mechanism to get a simple backup of AppHarbor hosted databases using the *.BACPAC files, which it seems were created originally for getting databases in and out of Microsoft’s Azure cloud-hosting platform. BACPAC files are Data-Tier Applications (aka DAC) packages which are essentially ZIPs that contain an XML representation of the schema: … and the actual table data stored in JSON format: Schema-only packages have a DACPAC file extension instead. I think “Data-tier Applications” are what we are supposed to call databases now… Programmatically Exporting is simple enough: And importing is similarly straightforward: Command-line
Letter (paper size)A Letter size page. Comparison of Letter (shaded light blue) and Government letter sizes with some similar paper and photographic paper sizes. Letter or US Letter is a paper size for office use. It is the most common type in North America, Bolivia, Colombia, Venezuela, the Philippines and Chile. It measures 8.5 by 11 inches (215.9 mm x 279.4 mm). Ronald Reagan made this the paper size for U.S. federal forms in the early 1980s; previously, the smaller "official" Government letter size, 8 in × 10.5 in (203.2 mm × 266.7 mm), was used. In the U.S., paper density is usually measured in "pounds per ream" (of 500 sheets). Unlike the A4 (210 × 297 mm) international standard (ISO) paper sizes which are used in most countries in the world today, the origin of the dimensions of letter size paper are lost in tradition. The related paper size known as half letter, statement, or organizer L is exactly one half of the US letter size (8.5 × 5.5 in).
