Microsoft Idea

Microsoft is releasing bunch of new and refined products almost every three months. When I analyzed Microsoft’s way of taking technological progress parallel to commercial trends and future (5 to 10 years down the line) requirements, it clearly shows Microsoft’s idea of “Windows Live Connected World”. The story starts from deep integration of Internet Explorer and Media Player with windows to recent Windows Home Server and SkyDrive online service releases. Hotmail is getting complete new shape as “Windows Live Hotmail” and many impressive, free (to some extent :) web 2.0 services under “Windows Live” branding like Office live, free web hosting, online system scanning (one live care), live search, live space, MS Write, 3D maps (virtual earth), popfly …list is growing. Whatever is possible in virtual world to create our presence or avail service from it is constantly identified by Microsoft and suitable projects are kicked off. Microsoft making revolutionary movements in its dot net framework proposing as its primary, shrill performing, long lasting technology with amazing fore thoughts (Silverlight, Surface, Dot net 3.5, Dynamics, Microsoft Robotics, CardSpace, Workflow and there may be many more).
The new Windows Home Server operating system allows connecting your Desktop, Laptop, Mobile (with Windows CE of course :), XBOX, Zune, your private website, your private documents secured in skydrive. Moving further it may be your TV (or Windows Media Center), Washing Machine…etc. You can access information or device anywhere and everywhere. We all seeing only bits and pieces today, one fine day everything gets integrated and become big private automated networked system. The day is no farther when whole world sits in your palm and you just can access and perform whatever you want much before changing your thoughts! At last the end user gets benefited.

Why Akbar was Great?

I have fanatical interest to be acquainted with what made Indian emperors take influential decisions during their reign. Few great kings’ valuable decisions created a remarkable history.

When Akbar accepts the marriage proposal of Hindu King (Bharmal of Amer), he wishes to make an attempt to set an example for two culture and religions and convey the message of peace. Later, destiny takes him to the critical path of life having most depraved political and family oriented problems. Being a true great emperor, Akbar learns and conclude challenges by demonstrating his exceptional leadership qualities. With his verdicts, Akbar stands as an incomparable king of all time. “Jodha Akbar” – brings 16th-century incidents to life and shows beginning part of Akbar’s married life which was, in fact, a deal for political gain. This decision slowly unleashes Akbar’s loving life, internal dreadful politics, painfully desirous people around him and betraying family members.

3) Run Install-Package Hangfire.MemoryStorage -Version 1.5.2 or visit here for latest version https://www.nuget.org/packages/Hangfire.MemoryStorage/
4) I am simply updating a table with a primary key (auto incremented), and string field "StampTime" with current date and time.
5) Open Global.asax.cs and paste below shown code.
6) Run the app and check the database.
