towards better world - Will Code for GREEN

At the eleventh hour I submitted an entry in Will Code for GREEN which is the contest provided by Imagine Cup 2010. It's my bad luck that I received an email from imagine cup just 2 days before the deadline to submit the entry. The requirement was that you have to use Bing API to built a website in any of 2 categories, which are "Global Economy" and "Global Ecology". I read the whole documentation for Bing API and just created a website in Global Economy category and named it towards Better World. The website has some really simple functions. It is available here. The voting period is also over :(. So I didn't get any vote :(. The final result will be published on the 20th of Aug, 2009 and you can view the result here.

cloud computing

It's been a while I have heard about cloud computing. I think in future there will be of no necessity to maintain one's own server to conduct business in IT field. Cloud computing is a computing system by which it is possible to maintain data and applications in a remote servers in internet. You don't need to establish your own internal server to start a IT business. The servers will be maintained by the big companies like Google, Microsoft, amazon and others. All you need to do is just to pay them monthly to create and maintain your servers. You don't need extra manpower and resources to maintain your server. You can invest that time to boost up your business. These servers can also grow dynamically. In addition, you can stop your service with them at any time, which is very good in a sense that you don't need to worry about selling your servers when you plan to stop your business. you can read more here.

url mappings in

I found this one very interesting in If you want to give an alias to your urls that contains weired query params, it can be achieved easily using web.config file in You need to add <urlMappings enabled="true"> tag inside the <system.web> tag and then you have to add one more tag (<add url="your alias url" mappedUrl="your url with query params") inside urlMappings tag. That's it. :) I have given one example below:
<urlMappings enabled="true">

<add url="~/content/general/university_calendar.aspx" mappedUrl="~/content/general/frontmatter.aspx?fmcode=UNCL&fmname=UGRAD"/>

How to: Get Top n Rows of DataView in C#

DataView in doesn't have any method of returning Top n rows or it doesn't accept any row filter string such as, dataview.RowFilter = "top 100". So to server the purpose you can use the method below to get top n rows from DataView.

private DataView GetTopDataViewRows(DataView dv, Int32 n)
DataTable dt = dv.Table.Clone();

for (int i = 0; i < n-1; i++)
if (i>= dv.Count)
return new DataView(dt, dv.RowFilter, dv.Sort, dv.RowStateFilter);

Timbaland - Apologize (feat. One Republic)

Lyrics to Apologize :
I'm holding on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground
I'm hearin what you say but I just can't make a sound
You tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but wait
You tell me that you're sorry
Didn't think I'd turn around, and say...

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

I'd take another chance, take a fall
Take a shot for you
And I need you like a heart needs a beat
But it's nothin new
I loved you with a fire red-
Now it's turning blue, and you say...
"Sorry" like the angel heaven let me think was you
But I'm afraid...

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

Bridge (guitar/piano)

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late
It's too late to apologize, yeah
I said it's too late to apologize, yeah-
I'm holdin on your r…
