A tablet is not only for onsuming what other people have done. You can too. Also a kid can.
Create your own side scroller.
There is also hardware if you want.

There is not a clear goal, just fiddle around. For good and bad. It is like making movies in ScratchJr but only side scrolling and less effects.
It is like Lightbot but side scrolling and with funnier characters. The goal is somewhat funnier compared to lightbot; getting a donut for a (US) police officer instead of just lighting a light bulb. To try it out there is an older? version on the web.
Hour of code
Lots of stuff.
Hard to use computer interface.
Make a little robot find her way around stairs and obstacles.
Light bot looking but with famous figures like angry birds
Minecraft (pocket edition)
Unlogical user interface.
Also see https://www.dexterindustries.com/BrickPi/program-it/scratch/ for using Scratch with Raspberrypi.
More mechanical than programming

Wireless/WLAN/Wifi did not work when I upgraded my Surface Pro Win8 to Win10.
My resolution was to go to the devices and remove a WLAN driver (Marvell Avastar 350N wireless network controller?) and right after that look for hardware changes in the same window. Unfortunately I did not take any screenshots and promptly forgot the accurate data.
Honor those who should.
Setting up a new Web site and then connecting it to Sqlserver is a breeze if one uses the development web server.
But if one wants to use the real McCoy, i.e. IIS, there is more work.
iis apppool: http://www.selfelected.com/iis-7-iisapppool-lightly-explained/
Why use the real IIS when it is so cumbersome? Because it looks more like the real production environment.
How do I debug? Like this:
Start Visual studio i in administrator mode. (if one doesn’t, VS is helpful with this)
Then ctrl-alt-p (menu:debug:attach to process) and choose the w3wp.exe process, with the right user name. Attach. Debug.
With VS2010; Blend was shipped as a stand alone product. With VS2012; Blend was bundled. Almost.
The Blend that comes with VS2012 only does Win8 ModernUI apps.
But there is a remedy: download Blend preview from here: http://bit.ly/U3Opxh. Login might be required.
The article linked below doesn’t touch my usual rant about innovation and that there are things that cannot be owned.
Instead it mentions that there is something built into software patents that make them unusable as patents.
If you are using Dapper and try to select data into an object and don’t have a default constructor the exception
Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: con
might be thrown.
The stack is:
[ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null.

I found an article about how to add items to your Sendto folder in Windows 7. Easy as pie.
It worked on my machine and as long as I didn’t need to handle Allusers or anything fancy like that it did what it should – allowed me to enter a shortcut into the Sendto folder.
I don’t know for how long this has been possible but I guess my years of whining about lack of data scripting capabilities in Sqlserver management studio is moot.
I found an article which describes the hidden setting. I wonder for how long the possibility has been there.
I remember Sqlbase scripting its own data back in last century. I remember myself writing sprocs for the same for Sqlserver. I remember myself hunting scripts for the same on the web. I now foresee a future with lots of clicketyclick – the GUI of MS’s Sqlserver tools is way too fiddly for my taste.
This is a place holder for a possible review of HP Pavilion dm1-3110eo Notebook PC.
I have started a new blog to run parallel with this. It is about ideas.
I get ideas all the time. So instead of just dropping them I let them out for others to see and use.
