Skype Coming to Windows Phone 7 this Fall

According to Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore, Skype is “definitely coming this fall.” He said this whilst speaking at MIX 2011 which started on Tuesday.

With the extra phone integration features that developers are getting next May, you will be able to call your contacts using Skype. The Phone Integration features include Multitasking, Contacts and Calendar access, and also access to the Camera.

Will we see a front facing camera?.. Time will tell us.

Project NINE Web Design

Finally the day has come, for Malta to experience a new concept in web development on www.nine.com.mt. Today we just made our first advert on the timesofmalta.com as till now is going very good.

Clients will have many features for a small price. Stay tuned as we’re going to reveal more before Monday!

Why the word Project?

We chose the word project instead of concept or design for the simple fact that this website will be always evolving. There are so many things that we have ready for it. And we are the type of persons that listen.

Why Nine?

We chose the number Nine as it is a magic number. It’s amazing what  Try this…

– Multiply any number by nine (be it 10, or 15, or thousands or millions).

– Then repeatedly add the digits of the resulting number until it is just one digit

– You’ll end up with NINE

Next are some examples:

2 × 9 = 18 (1 + 8 = 9)

9 × 9 = 81 (8 + 1 = 9)

234 × 9 = 2106 (2 + 1 + 0 + 6 = 9)

578329 × 9 = 5204961 (5 + 2 + 0 + 4 + 9 + 6 + 1 = 27 (2 + 7 = 9)) Continue reading

ASP.Net Menu Control Problem with IE8

When loading a website that utilises the asp:menu control, in the development machine it works fine but on the server (in our case Windows Server 2003 R2) the menu isn’t shown correctly. Instead a blank panel would be viewed. As a temporary solution, the IE8 compatibility button can be clicked, but some styles might not work well with IE7 compatibility. So below please find the patch for asp:menu which can be applied to Windows or Windows Server, to build IE8-compatible ASP.NET WebForms sites…

Windows Vista – Printers not showing up

Sometimes when clicking on the Printers button, the window seems to be loading, like searching for the printers but in the end, no printers are loaded. This is the solution to see the printers again: 🙂

  • open Command Prompt
  • write “net stop spooler” and press enter
  • wait till the spooler stops
  • then write “net start spooler” and press enter

Go to the printers window, and voila… printers are back in business!! 🙂
