Danny The Dog

Mix Morgan Freeman and Jet Lee with a screen play by Luc Besson, the result would be called Danny The Dog.

Danny, a man that is captured when he was little boy and treated like an animal trained to fight, to kill and to do his masters dirty wishes, yes this is Jet Lee, a blind good heart kind piano man (and this is Freeman) finds Danny and the life of the boy changes.I think big problem with the movie is screen play, obviously it has psychological problems, to be honest movie has some good features like unleashing Danny (like a dog) the collar thing and some other good thing that make this movie worth to watch.

Deja Vu

Last year i got a DVD of Deja Vu movie, but the disk get damaged and I can't saw it by the way I got another one from a friend of a colleague and saw it last night. Denzel Washington is a very good artist and I always love his acts.

story is about a smart ATF agent that helps FBI to solve a terrorist operation puzzle but his actual motivation for sacrificing himself is falling in love with a girl that murdered in the past. the FBI have some technology that they can watch the past but they only can have 4 days and 6 hours in the past no rewind,no fast forward so they used some one who may know where to look : Agent Doug Carlin (Washington) .
the story reminds me of Bone Collector movie a cop helps other cops to solve a serial killer and there is a girl that makes Denzel to accept cooperating with them... .
good movie though .

Play NES in FireFox

In fact I've never played Nintendo, I started with "TV Game" and "Atari" and then "Sega" console but the games must be the same in those times however you can play NES games in FireFox by these simple steps :
1- go to FireNess website and hang around for a while may be to say thanks to plug-in developers
2-download and install this file
and remember it needs java to work, the other problem that site mentioned is that the keys are not working which in 95% of times the cause is that the page does not have focus on it.
you can access NES plug-in in tools menu, Have Fun !

I Am Legend

In 2009 Scientists believe that they found cure of cancer using a genetically manipulated virus unaware of what will happen next,3 years later the virus spread in world and infected almost all people of the world.
Robert Neville only survivor in New York city and an army scientist that has immunity to the virus has decided to find a cure for the plague... .

although it's a zombie movie but the story and the plays are much better. the zombies can somehow think they can make traps they can almost love, the other difference is light, these zombies like vampires are vulnerable to light and only come out in night and during the day they go to dark places. other thing i liked is that the only survived man sends a radio message every day in the midday when sun is at the highest point to find any other survivors, the movie has some notable points and I'm not going to spoil it.

I was just checking my performance

I received a mail from one of my friends (mehdi neystani) that i found it interesting, the author of the text was not specified so i don't know where is the source of it if any one knows please tell me, here is the story :

A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits.

The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation: The boy asked, "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn? The woman replied, "I already have someone to cut my lawn."

"Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now." replied boy. The woman responded that she was very satisfied with the person who was presently cutting her lawn.

The little boy found more perseverance and offered, "Lady, I'll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of Palm beach, Florida." Again the woman answered in the negative.

With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all, walked over to the boy and said,
"Son... I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job."

The little boy replied, "No thanks, I was just checking my performance with the job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady, I was talking to!"

Beginning C# 3.5

I've started C# 3.5 recently and decided to share it with you as long as i can.most of information in these posts will be from "Apress C# 2008 and .Net 3.5", I will suppose that you are familliar with programming and new to .Net 3.5.lets start with some words about the three key components of .Net : CLR, CTS, and CLS

Professional C# (Wrox Press) describe the CLR as:
Central to the .NET Framework is its runtime execution environment, known as the Common Language Runtime (CLR) or the .NET runtime. Code running under the control of the CLR is often termed managed code.

The CLR also takes care of a number of low-level details such as memory management; creating application domains, threads, and object context boundaries; and performing various security checks.

CTS or Common Type System describes data types and programming constructs supported by the runtime there is a related feature named Common Language Specification (CLS) that defines a subset of common types and programming constructs that all .NET programming languages can agree on

besides of this .Net included a base class library that provided a very usefull featues and services like threading or I/O operations

(image from the book)

anoher point that you should notice is .Net executables are not ready to use in target machine(that is why you need to have .Net Framework on target machine unlike unmanaged programs) , C# compiler do not produce final machine code but an intermediate code (like java bitecodes) - ragardless of source code's used language - called IL or MSIL, CLR makes final decisions about what and how our code will acts depending to program and target machine enviroment(that means more optimized code becauese CLR knows target CPU and generates more friendly machine codes)

Sweeney Todd & Rambo

I saw Sweeney Todd and Rambo in one night that was too much blood and gore for a single night both filled with red color.
when there is tim berton's name you can be sure you are going to see a good movie,Johny Depp palys great like always the other interesting fact for me about the movie is some harry potter actors in this movie Alan Rickman(Prof.Snape),Timothy Spall(WormTail),Helena Bonham Carter(Bellatrix Lestrange) another point is the Sin City style photography, dark & sad but musical,imagine Johny Depp singing while cutting a throat in a dark and horrible scene.
Rambo movie is like always, an American patriot hero goes to heart of danger in a foreign country with monster government and save his friends and some people of the country but if you don't give too much attention to story it's not that bad, actually I like the movie.

How to Deploy Your Database along with Your App

I can recommend several ways to deploy your database along with your app
  • easiest way is using some application like Red-Gate SqlPackeger or Easy SQL Deploy Plus . if you don't have time or you are afraid of forgetting something use these software they have a good trial time so you can choose with eyes wide open. with this tools you can even insert pre required data in tables.
  • You can use database scripting to create a new database on the destination machine. after getting the script run it using your desired language, for example by SqlCommand on .Net, remember there should be some order in executing the queries, for example you should create database first then tables,views,stored procedures. the order can be different on different situations for example if you have any user defined data type that used in a table you should create it before creating table, be careful about function and other things. do not forget to insert data if necessary by some INSERT command
  • Another possible way is using attach/detach feature, right click on your database name and from Tasks 's submenu select Detach... and then OK, make sure you know the location of files before detaching. now we should attach it on destination machine if destination machine has management studio or any other tool for attaching database on it just use them another way to attach database is coding, create a WinApp/ConsoleApp in your desired language and using "CREATE DATABASE" attach your not use "sp_attach_db" because it will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. one of the benefits of this method is transfering every thing(almost) to distination db like table data or CLR related things
  • You can also use backup/restore feature to deploy your database. take a backup of database (in the management studio right click on the database and select Tasks and then backup... hit the Add button, select where to save backup file and then OK) like the attach/detach you can use management studio and other tools to restore database on destination machine, if you using management studio right click on databases node and select Restore Database... enter the database name in "to database" field select from device, click the browse button that is indicated by "..." click Add button select your file (the backup file) hit the OK in "Restore Database" dialog check the database you have selected and then OK. for doing this programatically you can just use RESTORE DATABASE . like the last method most of your database info will be transfered to destination machine.

Symantec tool cleans up Windows XP SP3 registry corruption

Symantec Thursday released a free tool that wipes spurious entries from Windows' registry that had crippled some PCs running the company's security software after they were upgraded to Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) or Vista SP1. The tool, SymRegFix, had been promised by Symantec two weeks ago when users reported that upgrading to XP SP3 emptied Windows' Device Manager, deleted network connections and packed the registry with thousands of bogus entries.

Symantec initially blamed Microsoft for the snafu, but later accepted some responsibility. Last week, the company said the combination of a Microsoft process and the SymProtect feature of its Norton-branded consumer security software had added the errant registry entries, and it told users to turn off that feature before upgrading. Symantec's SymRegFix clean-up tool can be downloaded from the company's site.
