Old things.....my drawings

Believe or not I wanted to be a designer or professional comic drawer before I entered computer science course. This was a long time ago but I still have my drawings and decided to show them to you.

They could seem a little bit crapy to some of you but hey I'm not an artist, I never was, it's just something I did and liked very much....
This megaman X I took from a magazine cover

This Dr Mario is from his nintendo 64 game

This one is a Ragnarok girl

I don't remember where I took this one from, only know that this is from Chobit anime

I hope you all enjoy these...I have more but they are not painted....

See you next time...

What is RockMelt?

The short answser: a social integrated browser. Kinda complicated? In fact is easier than  people think.

I got an invite to RockMelt and before downloading it my thought was: "Just another browser....." but when I opened it I found much more than a browser.

First it is based on Chromium ( the Google Chrome Open Source Project ), to me this means a lot because is light for the computer and pretty clean. And besides that I'm a developer, so we (devs) can get in the project and see it inside or even help.

Second, it's integrated with facebook and with everything that have an rss feeder. The facebook integration is perceived when you try to open RockMelt as it asks your account, after that it shows your logged friends on the left and if you click then you use facebook IM feature, for me that is DAMN COOL!!!!!
 On the right twitter and your facebook account are added by default, but is here that you can add your favorite rss feed, another DAMN COOL feature.

The third and last thing I want to talk about is the Share button, this nice button between the address field and the search field adds the possibility of spreading anything you're seeing to your other social media connected to RockMelt, in its case facebook and twitter as far as I know.

RockMelt got other nice features but I didn't get deep enough to talk about them.

Now back to the question "What is RockMelt?" we can re-write the answser "It is a damn cool amazing best browser with social media integrated in it, where I can share things with my friends and get my reading feeds faster"

Maybe I'm overating or just maybe it's going to rock the house.  Oh and just to remember that it requires invitation to download, but that is not a problem, ask in facebook/twitter or access RockMelt

New God Of War Competitor - Azura's Wrath

Capcom is one of my favorite game producer, they always surprise me with something different. But this time they hit the spot!!!
They're producing a game similar to god of war serie (PS's) but with Super Street Fighter IV (PS3/XBOX360) design, asian Gods (hell yeah!), they're using Unreal 3 Engine and the most important, it'll be released for xbox360 too.
The name of the big, awesome, fantastic game is AZURA'S WRATH......okay, maybe I'm overestimating the game, but it seems a blockbuster....see for yourself and let us hope to see this baby soon =D

Good movie - The Sorcerer's Apprentice

I watch a really good movie from Disney today, first I was in disbelief about it but after a few minutes I changed my mind.
The Sorcerer's Apprentice is much more than simply a copy of harry potter, in fact it doesn't resemble nothing harry potter movies...
Its references, for me, are more likely to be Dragon Ball Anime, Star wars (some jokes, see for yourself) and the good old medieval sorceres books (I can't remember the names, if you do please leave a comment =D).
Sum it up the effects are great and simple, the actors really get into the characters and the history is well made.
It worth your money go see it!

So I leave here with the thriller, enjoy it.

Alias to namespaces in C#

I know that probabily you already know how to give an alias to your namespaces references and I know also there is some easy content in the web that explain that.

But this is a little tip that I never thought searching and step on it by chance.

Imagine that you are using two or more control libraries, one is from .NET (Desktop or Web) and the other are from external companies or from the community.

In this case it's very common to find a Label control, for example, in more than one library. So when that happens you'll have something like this:

Imagine calling these references all the time, this is bad for readability and also for the compiler, which have to load the reference in runtime instead of doing it in compile time.

There is a very simple way of not loading this references all the time and improving the readability, that are aliases.

So that is it, I hope you all liked it.

Searching for labels in Team Foundation Server - TFS

In my new work I started to dealing with TFS Version Control programming in c#, for some problems you could use the microsoft library, for others you have to use the TFS Command Line Utility both in code.

Ok, some of you could ask me what is this Team Foundation Server?

It's the server storage for the version control of the Team Foundation Suite of Microsoft. The Version Control here is a combo, composed by Server (TFS) and (TFVSC).

While Team Foundation Version Control is equivalent to Source Safe, provided by Microsoft too there are other equivalents like Tortoise Subversion, a excelent alternative for those with no money to expend in the sooooooooo expensive Microsoft set of solutions.
But in the case of Tortoise you still need a server to host your files, for example assembla.

Ok enough of this small talk! got it?

In a certain point of the tool I was developing appeared a need to query the server for all the labels of a specific folder. You could use it to get files labels too.

So let's go to method that solved the problem =D.

That's it! Ask any questions that you need....

Here you could see a deep explanation about

That's all, hope you like it.

See you next time...
