I am creating this one to store the various troubleshooting related articles.

Many of these would be links to external websites.

And some of these would be my own personal experiences with the World Of Computers.

Using Software Restriction Policies to Protect Against Unauthorized Software

28-March-2006 Leave a comment

Software restriction policies are a new feature in Microsoft® Windows® XP and Windows Server 2003. This important feature provides administrators with a policy-driven mechanism for identifying software programs running on computers in a domain, and controls the ability of those programs to execute. Software restriction policies can improve system integrity and manageability—which ultimately lowers the cost of owning a computer.

27-March-2006 5 comments

Most of us commute to & fro to office & especially for the ones who use their own transportation this is one big reason for you guys to smile.

An agency who are providing puncture or repair service round the clock (24 *7 ) anywhere within 50 kms radius of Bangalore. You just need to give them a call and they will land at the place where your vehicle has broken down to repair or whatever the case maybe. Just tell them your address and the problem of your vehicle. So for the ones in night shifts here is a big relief.

Charges : Service charge + 35 additional anywhere in Bangalore city.(50 kms)

Call in : +91-98457-64439

I personally used this service and found it decent. The company name is Metro eServices and its located near Trinty Circle (M.G.Road). The only problem I found is that they said they will come in 15 minutes to the spot, but they arrived after 1 hour. Thanks to Bangalore Traffic. So plan your timings before giving them a ring. The charge taken was Rs.25 for fixing the tube and Rs.35 for their Transportation.

Update on 02-Jan-2008
Welcome 2008 and once again, I was the victim of a nail which pierced my rear tyre and then everybody knows the end results! But this time, it was a bad timings. The event occurred at 8:30pm between the Hosur Road and I tried searching for a punchure shop near-by. After a quick hunt, I could locate 3 shops – but all closed! So, finally the Metro eServices came to my rescue. Luckily I had transferred their Mobile# 98457-64439 into my new mobile phone. I called them around 9pm and he confirmed his presence would take about 1 hour, since he has to start from M.G.Road. I had to ultimately wait about 1 hour 45 minutes for him to reach the spot. This guy comes like a God, fixes the problem and goes back. I appreciate the pain and effort he takes. Ofcourse, he does charge his service – Rs.50 for his travel, Rs.25 for service and any parts replacement (e.g. – replacment of damanged tube with a New tube). I was also informed through my close friend about another such service called – RescueFirst, but they would require Membership and I have not tried them personally. When I called them today, they refused to come saying that they serve only members. For non-members, it may cost upto Rs.500 per visit. If anyone has tried RescueFirst service, please share your comments.

6-March-2006 Leave a comment

This article looks at how Web requests flow through the ASP.NET framework from a very low level perspective, from Web Server, through ISAPI all the way up the request handler and your code.

See what happens behind the scenes and stop thinking of ASP.NET as a black box.
