This week I had an issue with SharePoint. I tried to log in to our work’s SharePoint account to add a new blog post about Email Management. But when accessing it from IE, the website goes nuts. It keeps refreshing every few seconds and it was unusable. I tried Chrome but apparently there is an issue with this browser. When I enter my login details, it keeps prompting me to enter my username and password without success.
I tried removing the cookies but still nothing worked. Then I remembered that about a week ago, I changed my work’s account password, so maybe that was the issue. I tried to log out from SharePoint, which I managed to do successfully, but when logging in again, it started refreshing the page again.
Finally I tried resetting Internet Explorer, and that did the trick (p.s. to reset IE, go to Internet Options, click the Advanced tab, and click the Reset button). I asked around, and some colleagues had the same issue after resetting their password. I’m still not sure why it’s happening, so if anyone has any other solution instead of resetting Internet Explorer, please add it in the comments below. Thanks!

There’s this popular Maltese saying which says: “L-iskarpan biz-zarbun imqatta'” – the shoemaker is wearing torn shoes – and we were like the shoemaker, doing websites for other companies, and leaving Deep Design’s website in the to do list. It’s been a long time coming but finally, Deep Design’s newly redesigned website is up and running! It has a bold and colourful new look. We opted for a responsive website design to make sure it will display correctly on all the user’s devices. Check out this post on Deep Design’s blog!

Today I finally launched a blog for Deep Design. I’ve been meaning to upload this new blog and make a post for almost two weeks now, but stayed back from posting it. I was trying to make sure the first post on a new blog is informative and gives a good introduction and this stopped me from posting it. I was always making excuses. Currently I am in France for work, and will stay for the entire week, and was going to postpone it again, but instead this morning I decided to just go for it.
What is Deep Design? Deep Design is a new startup under which my team and I will be launching all our new projects and apps. Visit Deep Design’s new blog (http://www.deep.com.mt/blog) for a good introduction and let us know what you think. There are several projects in the pipeline so stay tuned!
At work we are always seeking how to make our websites use fewer resources and perform better. One of the performance increase was found by having Lowercase URLs. From the testing done, it resulted that Lowercase URLs make an average performance improvement of 10%. A big improvement with minimal effort.
How do you make sure that all the URLs are in lowercase? In MVC ASP.Net, you just need to add 1 line of code.
In our new project, using Angular, I needed to fill drop down lists in a form from a set of enums. One particular case was to set the below Status Enum as a drop down list.
public enum Status
Deactive = 1,
Active = 2,
Expired = 3,
Deleted = 4,
To do that, the best solution I found was to convert the enums to a list KeyValuePair items. How do you do that? Continue reading
