V had her school project for word grouping to vowels , she cleared it.
To stretch further I asked to sort those words alphabetically.
She said yes.
I wanted to make sure she really understood my question. Asked her a few times and said the sorting should be really at each letter and not just the 1st letter of the word.
She confirmed she did.
Asked, between spoon and scale , which one comes first. Sure enough , she said scale, and that seemed she understood.
In few minutes, she confirmed that she completed. I said , are you sure you followed the instruction. It couldn’t be completed this fast .
I went over to check. And sure enough, she had sorted the words alphabetically.
I said, how did you complete this sorting, my linked list sorting is still isn’t working. For that she replied: “Give me your linked list and I can sort it in your computer program”. ..
Looks like learning programming or new latest upcoming technology from her is not too far…
Rollback testing is one of the hot topics in the software application deployment where you push the updates into production frequently or even if once in a while bug talking about number of applications and number of patches into production.
What is your Rollback Strategy?
How would you plan for one?
what is your understanding of application Rollback at deployment?
Fable about knowingly taking shortcuts and not adhering to the quality of the outcome…
read the rest and enjoy the rhubarb cake…
Looking at the weather forecast for next 10 days, indicates the NaN (not a Number) error on page
Interesting … is there some testing going on the production or is just that the data not available and the computing or rendering made it as NaN?
Interesting to see the lack of consistency between Windows desktop and windows server OS in terms of changing the account password. I remember I have done it before when Remote into a windows server 2008, it has been a long time and completely forgotten to get around and locate again.
i went around several options including Start—>Lock computer; Security wizard etc. Server being located at remote location obviously can’t take chances to shut it down and not being able to restart again.
To change the user password on a windows 2008 server while logged in as a Remote Desktop:
> Remote desktop login to the windows server machine
> start –> Windows Security
> click Change password
> to change password of different accounts other than the one logged in with, click Other Credentials
> enter user name domain\user
> give Old Password
> Enter New password and repeat followed by Arrow to submit.
> changes the password and brings the control back to
some Intuitiveness can be further improved as part of this progress. for instance the 4th bullet (other credentials) takes additional clicks to figure out or get to the other user password change window; it could have reduced few clicks apparently.
hope the above steps help some of you…
It snowed most of the Wednesday morning in this area. It was fun watching snow and sipping a hot cup of Jeera tea (cumin seeds) [a.k.a jeerige kashaya #kannada]
Watching from inside reminds me of my initial days of stay in the US, living in a company provided apartment, awaiting interview calls, and sipping hot cup of coffee, preparing all sorts of food; eat bread toast + crunchy peanut butter with a full glass of orange juice sitting by the window on 7th or 8th floor watching snow and moving cars.
There used to be mixed emotions:
a. new place and anxiety to find a living thousands of miles away from cozy home where i grew up.
b. great to be around the snow that i had never seen in my life before
c. it is cold to get out even to a grocery store, we had to walk a mile to get stuff
Interesting to see the purchase price different from the advertised price on the same site between two pages…
This company has put up a front page banners saying 80% off on 100pk DVD spindle that turns out to $9.99/- . Proceed further to place an order for this item, the item results page shows $14.48.
Now proceed further to check out page or the shopping cart, it shows the $14.48 and other summary of delivery charge etc…
Amount inconsistency? Where might this have gone wrong?
latency in price points? so the images for advertisement did not have this price?
Looking at the coupon page, i realized if the offer was In-Store only, and went back to the home page to check if it was available online too. Well, it looks like it does the advt shows “in store and online” .

ps: i am not posting this to pin point an issue on the site here. The intent is to probe other software professional visitors here to think what might have happened and how such scenarios can be prevented in their work situations.

I have been playing around the TFS2010 (Team foundation Server) and the way it manages the data between the operational database and its counterpart Data Warehouse. It has been a long time since I had ever tried the warehouse concepts and learning some of those concepts…
At the same time Microsoft Team Foundation Server also offers the Client side of the tools like Test and Lab Manager and they are part of the Microsoft Visual Studio Test Professional SKU. Being a v1.0 of this client utility, obviously we can say there are some limitations, but on the positive side there are great features to leverage with Source control, work item associations, work item management overall and several others…
oh yes, we have been snowed since yesterday. It was beautiful sunny day with temperatures at its teens today. My 5yr old and I went out for a few minutes to take some pictures. was it cold, oh! it was freezing. My fingers taking pictures were frozen within few minutes. daughters feet were frozen and literally ran home after some time staying out taking pictures.
some kids had fun sledding around the streets. It was a great walk though.
hope it all melts away tonight, but with the lower temperature till later tomorrow, wonder it gets icy before it melts.
