jQuery Rule: Add the below rule into script tag in header & add reference to jquery-1.2.6.js,jquery.validate.js in Head Element
$(document).ready(function() {
         $("#frmSelfRegister").validate({              rules: { txtUserName: {                          required: true,                          remote: { type: "post",                                     url: "Register/IsLoginAvailable" }                     },     messages:{

Interface Inheritance Naming Conflicts

Suppose you have two interfaces, lets say Interface-IA, Interface-IB & in both you have declared Name as a property as follows.
public interface IA {
string Name { get; set; } String Adress { get; set; }
public interface IB {
string Name { get; set; }
Now, you write an interface -IC which derives from above 2 Interfaces as below,

public interface IC : IA, IB {
int Id { get; set; }

When you are try to do the following, you will get an error saying 'Ambiguity between IA.Name and IB.Name'. 
class Test {
    public void GetSomething()      {        IC objIc = new IC();        Textbox1.Text =  objIc.Name();      }
It can be solved by upcasting as below.
class Test {
  public void GetSomething()   {       IC objIc = new IC();       Textbox1.Text =  ((IA)objIc).Name();   }

Today would mark 78 years of the sacrifice three young men gave for the nation. Bhagat Singh- Raj Guru- Sukh Dev.So today no one in news would talk about Bhagat Singh, Sukh Dev and Raj Guru the three young men who were hanged on this day near Ferozpur near the present India-Pakistan border. These men never cared about religion and fought for the freedom of the nation.
Indians seem to have forgotten the sacrifice and keep remembering Gandhi. It is definitely an unfortunate thing that people who were not in congress and worked for India's freedom never got the credit they deserve.Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru shall remain in my heart till I die. These are the people whom the young generation should have as idols. Their sacrifice, their patriotism & their principles, we should never forget them.

Fix Google Chrome (Crash) Error, The application failed to initialize properly (0xc00005)

I have Windows Machine with Symantec Anti Virus software,whenever I used to open Google Chrome,I used to get, "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc00005)" error.

After some exploration i found the way to bypass this error.
Here are the steps to follow to get rid of the error.
1. Close Chrome 2. Right click on the Chrome Shortcut and add "--no-sandbox" or "--in-process-plugins" switch as shown in the image below.
"--no-sandbox" switch instructs Chrome not to use Sanbox Security, Sanbox security mode prevents malware from getting installed into computer.
"--in-process-plugins" switch instructs Chrome to run the plug-ins inside the browser process itself. By default Chrome runs plug-ins in seperate process to avoid browser crashing when a plug-in crashes.
Hope it helps.

Why We(I) Support the BJP - Because India Deserves Better

Source : Friends Of BJPWe are some of us - young and professionals. Till some time ago, we assumed that our contribution to the 2009 elections and the future of India would be our one vote. But, somewhere along the line, things changed. Maybe it was 26/11 and seeing some of us out on the streets demanding action. Maybe it was seeing Obama become President, and see politics really change in America, bottom-up. Whatever it was, we have woken up to the fact that we have to do more - much more - if we are going to rewrite our future and rebuild our India into the glorious country that it once was.We know we are on the wrong track when security warnings sent on September 24 for the event that happened on 26/11 are ignored and not acted on. We know we are on the wrong track when we cannot provide adequate electricity 24×7 in our homes and factories - and yet for the sake of votes our political parties offer free power to millions. We know we are on the wrong track when we have schemes like …

Tips & Tricks to go Green

Tip 1# If you plug your Computer,TV, converter box, DVD player and surround sound stereo system into a power strip, you can eliminate the "phantom" loads they may draw when they appear to be off but are still consuming electricity in standby mode.
Tip 2# Use kitchen towels and cloth napkins instead of paper products. Stop using plastic straws, you know how to drink out of a cup?! Avoid buying/taking plastic utensils. If you must, bring home, wash, and reuse. Most can be washed in dishwasher.
Tip 3# Keep plants around the house.
Tip 4# Don't use cloth dryers, instead, dry your clothes to the sun.
Tip 5# Eat less meat. Cutting red meat and dairy consumption once a week reduces green house gas emissions equivalent to driving a 25 miles/gallon vehicle 1160 miles/yr (1860 km/yr). Cutting consumption altogether is equivalent to 8100 mi/yr (13000 km/yr).
Tip 6# Use LCD monitors instead of CRT,LCD monitors use less electricity and generates less heat than CRT monitors.

Interviewing a Software Engineer

Imagine the following interview with two interviewees, “Player A” and “Player B”:Interviewer: “Okay, sir. Let’s say a ball is hit a little bit to your left. How do you field it?”Player A: “Well, I’d take a few steps to the left and try to get my body in front of the ball. I’d use my left-hand to field the ball, switch the ball over to my right hand, and throw it to first.”Player B: “I’d take a few steps to the left, keeping my body bent at the knees and the back so I could respond to any strange hops the ball might take. If I can get completely in front of the ball, comfortably, I will, but I might have to field it with one hand to the left of my body, if I can’t get my body in front of it. Depending on the direction I’m moving, the time it took me to get to the ball, and whether I got completely in front of it or not, I might have to throw it on the run.”Based upon the two player’s answers to this question, Player B gets hired.This might seem like the right call. The problem is tha…

The disaster of ‘me, me’ by S Gurumurthy


This happened in Mangalore as February 14 — now marketed as Valentine’s Day by traders to sell their wares — was approaching.

Upset with public drinking by boys and girls, a freak by name Pramod Muthalik got mad. He got some of them in a pub beaten up like their parents would do, but unlike them. He had informed the media about his show so that the news cameras were in place to telecast the Muthalik action everywhere. Thus the Muthalik show was a joint venture between him and the media to keep away the state police, which could spoil the show. Predictably, the whole world pounced on poor Yeddyurappa who heads the BJP government in Karnataka for allowing Muthalik to take the law into his hands. The BJP, ever torn between its love of Hindu culture and its desire for a modern image, was greatly embarrassed. With the BJP in power in Karnataka, Muthalik knew the publicity value of his show. Had he enacted his theatre elsewhere, like when the Shiv Sena raide…
