Which city in India is best for hosting Tech.Ed

This is a quick response to MSDN India's query on the Facebook campaigning for particular cities which are most best candidates to host the premier technology event of the year 'Tech-Ed'. Without doubts we would all like to vote 'Bangalore' (aka) 'Bengaluru'. Also dubbed as 'Silicon Valley of Asia Pacific' I am sure Bangalore has the best in store with respect to the events. A few good points on why Bangalore should be the most impressive candidate are the following:
  1. International ports and good transportation system for ease of access.
  2. Premier software houses in and around the city which thus would give a good helping hand for everyone to attend and get benefitted.
  3. A better known geography for anyone to get adapted.
I hence thought just would share this view and polling to support Bangalore as a best candidate for Tech Ed 2011. Even for first time people who visit Bangalore for Tech-Ed it also offers a lot of general non-technical tourist attractions besides the ease of locating anything in the city.

Hence beyond doubts our votes for most admired and most coveted city for Tech-Ed would go to 'Bangalore.

I also agree with your views. At present B'lore is the best. At the same time, I think, Kochi has the full potential to overtake B'lore in (near) future.

Google NCR

Google NCRMost of you would be knowing about this trick in navigating to Google generic website. But I just came to know only a few days before and hence thought I would share the information with others too.
Whenever you type http://www.google.com/, Google automatically tries to redirect you to your country-specific website. For me, it always redirects to http://www.google.co.in/ (Google India). But when we specifically want to navigate to Google Generic website for some reason, there are two ways to accomplish the same.Click the 'Go to Google.com' link at the bottom of the webpage that is displayed from http://www.google.co.in/To prevent this redundant click, you can opt to type http://www.google.com/ncr/ which would prevent the redirect from happening. The NCR stands for No Country Redirect. There is a brief discussion about this NCR over this forum.You may also like to check out Google help documentation regarding the country redirections from here.

Elegant 'MailTo' Replacement

Elegant 'MailTo' Replacement

MailTo tags have become a bane to all websites since spammers run spam robots which crawl the web to capture the email addresses, add to their catalogs and send spams to them. I just thought of sharing with others a simple JavaScript function which would trigger open the default email client instead of having mailto: embedded in the HTML Page.

Just have the following function included in your webpage

<script language='Javascript'>
function WriteMailTo(user,domain)
{
location.replace ('mailto:'+user+'@'+domain);
}
</script>

And whereever you want to invoke the mailto, just called WriteMailTo('user','example.com') and the user's default email client should be launching (if configured) without any hassles.

Elegant Encryption Routine

Elegant Encryption Routine

Securing information from prying eyes has always been a concern of a project architect. The perils waiting to prey on an unsecured information is aplenty. .NET comes with it a vast amount of rich Cryptography libraries. Now the next problem that confronts an architect is:Which algorithm to choose?What is the strength of encryption to use?In future, if algorithm or strength changes, how easy and flexible is the implementation?I have been trying out various encryption logic and then I came across a library called XCrypt from CodeProject.  I feel that this is a very good feature-rich wrapper of .NET Cryptography API. Also, there are implementations for algorithms like BlowFish, which does not have API in .NET BCL. It also comes with a rich Windows application that helps us troubleshoot encryption and decryption with specific keys in a easy way. Let us thank pdwolf for the really excellent encryption library.Free 3D Marine Aquarium Screensaver - Watch dolphins, s…
