Часть 2. 14 марта – 18 апреля 1942   СЗФ.           14.3.42      11.00     дер. N Здравствуй, моя родная, бесконечно любимая женушка-Томочка! Пользуясь некоторым свободным временем и довольно хорошо выспавшись, только что хотел ехать по своим подразделениям, как мне принесли твое письмо от 3 марта с.г. Почта у нас сейчас работает прекрасно, письмо шло всего 10 дней. Все твои письма от всех чисел – 4, 17, 21, 24 и 3.03, самостоятельное от наших крошек от 25.2 также получил, а вот сию минуту получил открытку от Тани, и сейчас  держу ее в левой руке. Вы все зря волнуетесь. Я ведь верю в судьбу, «чему быть, тому не миновать», а на войне надо быть ко…

01 Crossing Wild River Wilderness – Planning and preparations

Potable Aqua PA Plus Iodine Water Purification Tablets

Everything is ready for the trip to Wild River wilderness.  This time I am planning to stay in the wild 2 nights from Friday to Sunday and return to the car on my bike on Sunday.  Monday as usual would be a “freelance” day for light exploration and contemplation. I will carry a large KELTY backpack that I inherited from my former boss – Gary Welsh.  He most likely took this vintage backpack to his trips to Nepal (before 1996).  All this time this backpack was gathering dust in my basement, and only this year it finally dawned on me that I do not have scramble for space and eliminate either…

ASP.NET Combine Validators and Client OnClick Events

2017/05/03
By

  Imagine you need to use control validators, and you also need to attach  additional logic to OnClick event. These two will fight with each other, if you use conventional interface features. If you add OnClick attribute too early (say in GridView_RowEditing event)  it will be overwritten by Validators.  If you add OnClick  attribute very late (say in  Render event) Validators logic will be lost. To make this work, you need to  use a special JavaScript function that combines both procedures. Here is how you do it: You need to change  a few things on the button that causes validation:                     <asp:ImageButton ID="imgUpdate" runat="server" CausesValidation="false"                         OnClientClick="return isValid(this);" ImageUrl="~/Images/Update32x32.png"                         Text="Update"…

14-26 Last mile to the top

  09:53 – All trails are starting from the main road 09:54 – Dartmouth Ravine Lodge – the place of fun the place of knowledge   After breakfast at cash only place in North Woodstock (where route 3 crosses with 112) I drove to Ravine Lodge on route 118, and started my way to the top at 10:35. This Memorial day weekend the weather was rainy and cold. But here, at 777 m elevation the rain turned into snow, and it was a very festive white on green, but snow here was just a pretty ornament. 10:36 – Starting point to mount Moosilauke. Snow is just an fairy tale ornament here…

Extremely Slow Windows XP Shutdown – Fixed

2017/05/01
By
WinXP-Slow-Shutdown

Several years I had this problem in one particular instance of Windows XP Professional – an extremely slow shutdown upon clicking on Shutdown button.  For several minutes system would completely freeze, and then Shutdown/Restart dialog box would finally come up. What did I know about the problem.  It was extremely annoying.  It was persistent.  And it was happening only on one  instance of XP, so that excluded the possibility of a faulty hardware. It was so bad, that I came up with a workaround.  I would open up a Task Manager and end one after another svchost.exe processes running under SYSTEM name.  A counter and warning would appear saying that your…

Italy 2012 – Final Summary – Rules to Adopt and Follow

  This is a summary article about the rules and tradition that we discovered are very convenient and important to follow.  Italian – Learn and use basic Italian words.  Do not be a mute foreigner.  At least spice up your inability to speak with a bright smile and Buon Giorno [bon gorno] and Ciao [chao]. Mineral Water – Do order a large bottle of mineral water in restaurants.  It is an easy and customary way to replenish your fluids, and it is great. Restrooms – You can ask politely to use a restroom (bagno [ban’o]) in any restaurant.  We never received a refusal. Refreshments – buy a watermelon instead of ice…

Save and Restore Registry Security with Microsoft SubInACL

2017/04/29
By
SubInACL-Utility-in-Action

Problem You need to search and replace large registry databases with a set of new values.  You have a third-party utility to do the job, but this utility can only update values writable by administrator.  Thousands of registry keys are owned by NT Service\TrustedInstaller and protected even for Administrators.  What to do? If you simply use REGEDIT to take ownership and add full rights to Administrator to all registry at once, you will definitely achieve the goal, but you will ruin the intricate security permissions for dozens of system service accounts that populate registry security.  Windows will run but many features like Windows Update will become broken. Solution The plan of…

  Going Nowhere, Aiming for Nothing Instead of going to the forest, to my favorite bog, I stayed home to write.  That is in accordance with principle “Going nowhere, aiming for nothing”.  Instead of fighting traffic, biking through the bumpy path and covering myself with a bug spray from head to toe, I just took a pen in my hand and begun drawing these characters on paper. ~ Improving Our Bodies and Improving Our Minds Who does that?  Something is working on your body and your mind to make them faster, leaner, smarter.  What is that something? Body is like a Switzerland.  Mind is like a capital of Switzerland – Bern.  And…

IE10 is not saving passwords and user names

I hope this post will help a lot of frustrated users out there. PROBLEM: IE10 was working fine, but at one point it stopped saving user names and passwords for web sites. This most securely-configured browser, so switching was not an option.   Here is my solution.  Please see, if it works for you. SOLUTION: For extra security I’ve checked Delete browsing history on exit (see image 1).  I did it without understanding, what it is I am requesting to delete.  To solve my problem, I had to uncheck Cookies and website data on the very next Delete screen (see image 2).  Now IE10 is preserving user names in passwords for visited…
