11 years after my last “about me” post, it was time to post an update, as a lot has changed. As per introduction, I’m Clive Ciappara, I’m a Full Stack Developer who is passionate about everything Microsoft.
After five years working in the iGaming Industry with Betclic, it was time for a change and was offered a job with Codit – a Belgian company using the latest Microsoft technologies whose aim is to help businesses with their integration needs. Currently working on Nebulus – an IOT management system – which is giving me a lot of exposure to different services available on Azure, .Net Core, and WebApi. Continue reading
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.
Microsoft today announced some amazing news:
In jQuery you have multiple selectors to either select single objects or a whole bunch. I needed to select an image by its alt tag, and guess what, there is also a selector for alt tags. You need to do the following:
$(‘img[alt=”My Alt Image”]’)
I needed this so that I could change the class and set the selected image as active, by searching the alt tag as below:
$(‘img[alt=”My Alt Image”]’).addClass(‘.active’);
Something else that might be useful is to revert the active image, to a normal image. Instead of using the alt tag this time you can use the ‘active’ class selector as below:
Hope this was of help. Buon selectoring 😉

All was working fine until I inserted a button in the page. When I clicked the button, the URL address showed the original URL and stopped working… the button didn’t even do the postback.

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.
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
