1. Concrete Ways to use Online Collaboration Software

The talk that surrounds online collaboration can get a bit abstract, with a penchant for buzzwords. For every press release or blog post that says we need to revolutionize our position as thought leaders through synergistic culture building, there's another business that signs up for online collaboration software with no real idea what they're doing. So I'd like to take some time today to talk about more concrete reasons why online collaboration software is a better choice than the alternatives.

2. Uninstall in Safe Mode

By default, you cannot uninstall programs in Safe Mode. Whatever issue you are handling, your first choice is to resolve it using more acceptable solutions such as using System Restore or MSConfig. For MSConfig, try disabling all startup programs then see if you can use Add/Remove Programs. If you wish to enable the Windows Installer Service while in Safe Mode, add the following registry entry:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer\VE\TREG_SZ\F\D %Service%

3. Weak Wireless Signal

If you have a USB wireless device such as a wireless NIC, mouse controller, etc. that has a weak signal because of location, try adding a USB extension cable and placing the device in a more open location.

USB cables from stores such as Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc. are over priced 5 or 6 times what you can get on the internet.

For wireless network cards, you can also buy a range-extending antenna for the computer's WiFi card or router, or a wireless range extender.

4. C# Pointers

Although pointer data types in C# coding are less important than in other languages such as C++, C# does support developer defined pointers. Use the * operator to declare a pointer data type. Use the & operator to return the current address of a variable.

In .Net managed coding the use of pointers is not safe because the garbage collector may move memory around. To safely use pointers, use the unsafe keyword.

C++/CLI has more extensive support for pointers than C#. If you have needs that go beyond what C# offers, you can code in C++/CLI and add it to your project.

5. C# Partial Classes (partial)

C# uses the keyword partial to specify a partial class. All parts must be in the same namespace.

A partial class, or partial type, is a class that can be split into two or more source code files and/or two or more locations within the same source file. Each partial class is known as a class part or just a part. Logically, partial classes do not make any difference to the compiler. The compiler puts the class together at compile time and treats the final class or type as a single entity exactly the same as if all the source code was in a single location.

You can use them for many things including to separate code generator code, organize large classes, divice a class up so you can split ownwership among multiple developers, have different versions of the same class, and to utilize multiple languages with a single class.
