Clipboard Dialer

I've published Clipboard Dialer, an Android Application that extracts phone numbers from data located in your clipboard. It's a really simple application that gives you a list of all the phone numbers it finds from the clipboard. It will give you a list that allows you to easily call or create a contact from them.

To install it, search for Clipboard Dialer in Android Market!

openSUSE 11.3 released / fglrx driver fix

ATI logo

It's finally here, the much improved openSuSE 11.3 release. And I have to say that the team behind it have done a fantastic job!

I've upgraded my main desktop to run the new OS and as usuall, the ATI prop. driver isn't updated to support the new kernel shipped with openSuSE 11.3. But no worries, a work around has already been published AND it allows you to download a pre-built RPM both for x32 and x64.

Compact Framework & Adding reference to System * problem

We've been having some problems with Compact Framework and referencing assemblies from the 3.5 release. The problem shows during compile time with a nice message like "Consider app.config remapping of assembly "System.Data, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=969db8053d3322ac, Retargetable=Yes" from Version "" [] to Version "" [c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft.NET\SDK\CompactFramework\v3.5\WindowsCE\System.Data.dll] to solve the conflict and get rid of all warnings."

Plan your openSUSE 11.3 release party now!

As openSUSE 11.3 is around the corner and will be released on July 15. Make sure to plan your own release party!

openSUSE 11.3 soon to be released

It's finally starting to get close to the new openSUSE release, this time it's 11.3 that's on it's way out of the door. And it will be released on July 15.

There are a lot of new and improved stuff in this release. Take a look at the initial screenshot tour and later on I will try to have a more detailed write up about what's new.

NAUTIZ X5 - Camera Tweeks

The team ran into some problems using the C# CameraCaptureDialog class for taking pictures with the Compact Framework. When calling the ShowDialog() method it throws a OutOfMemoryException and the user is unable to capture a image.

To solve this problem, we tried to set the properties for Resolution and StillQuality for the CameraCaptureDialog but still no dice. It turns out that the OEM can force the settings written to the registry to override any properties applied for the CameraCaptureDialog class.

Disable Fault Tolerant Heap (FTH)

This only applies to Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
Snip from MSDN on what FTH is:
The Fault Tolerant Heap (FTH) is a subsystem of Windows 7 responsible for monitoring application crashes and autonomously applying mitigations to prevent future crashes on a per application basis. For the vast majority of users, FTH will function with no need for intervention or change on their part. However, in some cases, application developers and software testers may need to override the default behavior of this system.

Boot from vhd files with Windows 7

With Windows 7, you can use the bcdedit tool to boot into vhd files. This is really cool and useful if you, like me work as a Developer or if you are a IT professional responsible for testing new technology.

openSUSE 11.2 with ATI graphics

I ran into some problems while setting up my openSUSE 11.2 x64 system using ATI graphics. The problems occurs during the install and configuration of ATI's proprietary driver.

First of, you must enable POSIX shared memory, since this is not enabled by default in openSUSE. (At least not in my case).$[BREAK]$

Please note that this guide is intended for x86_x64 only. It might work for x32 as well if you mod the pre-requisite part.

Exchange 2007 SP2 Install

I like many other ran into some problems while installing SP2 on Exchange 2007.
The main problem? Well, the action "Organization Preparation" fails.
The error:
You do not have permissions to read the security descriptor on CN=Deleted Objects,CN=Configuration,DC=[Company],DC=[Domain].

C# and SoapHttpClientProtocol with Java Axis based server

If you want to use a C# based client to connect to a Java Axis based Web service and if the server is using complex types, you might get into some troubles / strange behavior when making a call to a method using complex types as it's argument(s).

Here are some simple ways that might help you get it up and running.
First, make sure you use the correct namespace when adding the service reference.

mysql-for-obj-c - New Release

OK, I've manage to spend some time with the MySQL connection framework for Obj-C and a new release have been made public.

This release will support standard query handling such as SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE. The result will be handled properly and you will be able to access it with column name and/or index etc... All the normal stuff one would expect.

mysql-for-obj-c - Current state

The project is coming along great. We have the base functionality in place, tested and mostly working.

This weekend, I've planned to complete the STMT support for parametrized queries and start to write a little test application that uses the library to do some admin stuff as a proof of concept.

From what I've gathered from Tony, my partner in crime for this project, he's going to come up with a plan for the Core Data integration, I'm excited to see what he comes up with.
