Quickie | ‘Sys’ is undefined Solution

Today I was trying to call a web service from Java Script using the Sys.Net.WebServiceProxy.invoke function but the following error was loading:

‘Sys’ is undefined

The problem was because the ajax was not being referenced in the website. The solution I found was to create a new website in Visual Studio 2005 and use the AJAX Control Toolkit Web Site Template. When I ran the code again, no error was loaded and everything worked fine!

Will Windows 7 be unveiled on 7/7?

There are many websites reporting that Microsoft is going to release the RC version of Windows 7 to the public starting May 5. And I think that it is going to be released on that date!

The thing that nobody noticed (at least on the websites that I visited) is that May 5 is the same as 5/5 in all the World’s countries. Microsoft is using these types of dates for the public to remember them easily.

If the marketing department continues to use these types of dates, there is a great possiblity that Windows 7 will be unveiled on July 7th or 7/7! Imagine the following banner:

Windows 7 coming on 7/7

What a great marketing campaign would it be! Kudos for the marketing department at Microsoft!!
