What a week… sometimes things just keep going wrong for no reason. Today it was Teamviewer not giving me the option to connect to a remote PC to simply view their desktop and help the person with an issue they were facing. The option ‘Connect’ was just greyed out, not being able to enter an ID. Even the box on the top ‘insert partner ID’ did allow me to enter a number, but expecting that number to be added to the list, the ‘Connect’ option there did not do anything either.
The “Ready to connect (secure connection)” you see at the bottom of the window is also a little misleading there, because it does not want to connect at all! So… what is the solution?
How To Fix Broken Permalinks In WordPress. WordPress is a powerful CMS. Sometimes a slight tweak can make your website inaccessible. Another common problem that most WordPress users face at some point is WordPress posts returning a 404 Error. In this article we will show you how to fix WordPress posts returning 404 error.
Usually in this scenario a user can access their WordPress admin area, their blog’s main page, but when accessing a single posts they get a 404 Not found error. First of all, don’t panic most of the time your posts are still there and completely safe. This usually happens if your .htaccess file got deleted or something went wrong with the rewrite rules. What you need to do is fix your permalinks settings. There are several sites describing this, below is the summary of what you actually need to do.
UPDATE JULY 2021: “Still haven’t found what I’m looking for”… so I wrote my own htaccess_keeper plugin. It runs on the normal homepage of the website to save the htaccess to a backup file (when changed), and restores it when a zero bytes file has been detected. It also shoots of an e-mail to the admin that it had to jump to the rescue again! Interested in this plugin? It is for sale, just contact My Brain.
Disable These Files Might Be Harmful to Your Computer Warning in Windows 10
If you connect a network share, i.e. mount a network drive by IP address of the server, Windows 10 displays a warning message These Files Might Be Harmful to Your Computer when you are opening files stored there. Here’s how to get rid of it.
Have you ever heard of SEMA? It’s a fairly esoteric system for measuring how good a software team is. No, wait! Don’t follow that link! It will take you about six years just to understand that stuff. So I’ve come up with my own, highly irresponsible, sloppy test to rate the quality of a software team. The great part about it is that it takes about 3 minutes. With all the time you save, you can go to medical school.
The Joel Test
Do you use source control?
Can you make a build in one step?
Do you make daily builds?
Do you have a bug database?
Do you fix bugs before writing new code?
Do you have an up-to-date schedule?
Do you have a spec?
Do programmers have quiet working conditions?
Do you use the best tools money can buy?
Do you have testers?
Do new candidates write code during their interview?
Onderhandelen: “We can be fast, good and cheap. Choose any two.”
Onderhandelen. We houden er niet van, maar doen het dagelijks. Wij vinden het moeilijk als onderhandelen onszelf betreft, als wij onszelf waarde moeten toekennen.
Onderhandelen is niets meer dan een transactie tussen twee partijen waarbij elk op voordeel uit is. Daar hoeft geen vijandschap aan te pas te komen. Redelijkheid en een ontspannen houding zijn genoeg. Zie de ander niet als tegenstander. Probeer elkaars doelen te doorgronden. In wezen zijn die hetzelfde: het beste product voor de beste prijs.

It starts with “Can not create Window Handle”… and continuous random crashes. You find out your app reaches the max of 10000 user objects. (Just check the task manager, you’ll see I’m right.)
So, you’ve been using your own usercontrols on a flowlayoutpanel; you add, you remove, you clear… however the user objects count keeps growing and something is leaking somewhere…
You find that .controls.clear() does not work, you have to dispose() of all the objects first. Okay, do that, but it still doesn’t work. So what’s the trick?
Simply remove first, before the dispose, and do this one at a time.
Just use the following routine:
ClearFlowLayoutPanel(myFlowLayoutPanel) instead of
Public Sub ClearFlowLayoutPanel(cFlowLayoutPanel As FlowLayoutPanel)
Do While (cFlowLayoutPanel.Controls.Count > 0)
Using controltoremove = cFlowLayoutPanel.Controls(0)
When debugging PHP I find myself searching again and again for this little piece of code to display the PHP errors. So here it is for future reference…
If you wish to see all the PHP errors and warnings in your script, simply include the following bit of code:
Nice. The ever-developing world of IT… or, “how to create more work for each other”.
My Brain develops Apps using a framework called Phonegap. Quick development, easy coding, simple configuration. Until you need to update an exisiting app and you are suddenly faced with the changes that were implemented since the last build…
This time the App did not want to access the Internet anymore… at all! So, Google to the rescue, finding this document with some good clues. I needed #10, which starts out perfectly phrased: “This is sooo new and obnoxious, one can only have pitty on returning developers.” …
