W(8)DP Customization Trick:  Ritaban Guha | 11/5/2011 at 10:04 AM
With a Hit over million, on the very 1st day of the launch of the Windows Developer Preview, WDP is probably the most Hot Topic in the market. Yet, a good size of crowd is disappointed with some of its new style statements. In aid to solution, this document will help improve the look & feel of the next windows, in the manner you desire. 1. There are already tools available to change the theme color and the Metro UI background. If you are not interested to get down dirty and get a flavor of full control of the UI style, I suggest you go for these tools. BluePoison, Win8StartTweeker etc. 2. And here’s the dirty method to get stuff customized. i. Download a hex editor. Anyone you like. E.g. HeXEdit, HxD etc. and install it. ii. Open the command prompt in admin mode. iii. Go to windows/System32/ and type takedown /f uxtheme.dll iv. Now type icacls uxtheme.dll /grant Administrators:F v. Now, copy the uxtheme.dll file to desktop or some other convenient place to edit. vi. Open up the file with your hex editor. vii. For the RGBA values, use the hext code for the color in red-green-blue format and use the alpha to set transparency. viii. Backup the uxtheme.dll in the System32 folder and copy the modified one there.. After reboot the changes will be a effective. If anything goes wrong, press F8 at boot time and go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Command Prompt. Type the following commands, ren C:\windows\System32\uxtheme.dll uxtheme.dl.blabla ren C:\Windows\System32\uxtheme.dll.old uxtheme.dll [here uxtheme.dll.old is the backup file] Continue to read in detail >>
ReadyBoost On Linux  Ritaban Guha | 6/8/2011 at 8:44 AM
In my previous post on readyboost I tried to explain out the basic ideology of the technique called readyboost and also some performance statistics to support the theory. Well that was for Microsoft operating systems [dedicatedly available in Vista or newer and have to be manually configured in older OSs].
 The idea of readyboost is simple. For machines with low RAM, whenever the data access requirements over-flood the RAM, the OS starts to pass the least probably-important data to the page files on the hard disk and loads currently required/most important/high priority data on to the RAM from the hard disk/page files. This is where the machine slows down. Activating the readyboost adds another layer in between the page files and the RAM in the data access hierarchy. Thus whenever the ram over-floods, the new data is loaded from the flash drive and the old data is passed to the flash drive. In the flash drive also data is collected and maintained in the same manner as the RAM.

Now, Linux also uses something similar to the paging file systems called the swap partition. Swap partitions do the almost the same job that is done by the page files in the windows environment. So it is possible to create swap partition on a flash drive. As because flash drives give a higher access speed, the swap partition will be faster on the flash drive. And if we assign priority to the flash drive swap compared to the dedicated hard disk swap, the flash drive enters in to the hierarchy scheme and performs almost the same way as the readyboost concept.

Visual Studio 2010 - Before you begin  Vaibhav Sharma | 5/28/2011 at 4:12 AM

“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

The saying above probably fits developers the most. More so if one happens to be a Microsoft technology developer, spending his day in and out of Visual Studio – the ultimate development experience (no offence intended to the Notepad developer). I am almost always amazed by the insane complexity that Visual Studio abstracts away from a developer, presenting it in a visually elegant and magnificent way. Before you even think of disagreeing, think of the top 3 features of the Visual Studio code editor according to you and try integrating it on a Rich Text Box in the language of your choice.
