PwNAT

Not sure how the author want to write it down, but I like PwNAT, looks cool. Anyways, I want to bookmark Samy’s work http://samy.pl/pwnat/ nice piece of code. While working on Video Conference software, we are having trouble bypassing NAT routers and this piece of code looks promising. At least its concept looks good. However it is in C language and we are looking for managed .NET code alternative.

Samy looks interesting guy too, he is a hacker or I would say a Better class of programmer.

I would say even if you have DVD available still get a USB drive it works much faster then DVD.

Facebook with its large community of people around the globe is certainly one of the best way to reach millions of people easily. To help in your reach Facebook provide creation of business Page to suite your need.

OpenXML : New office file format

When I first heard that Microsoft change the file extension of MS Office Products and add “x” in them, I got surprised as that was not very common practise for me. But today when I word on that new file format, I really would say, it was a good move. Those who don’t know, Microsoft with Office 2007, has change the core of file format used by Office product, and with other office software getting popularity, they actually work on an Open File format/document format. This new file fomat is known as “office open XML” or OpenXML.

this file format is based on one idea, Create a XML of Data and formatting in file, zip it and save it. Simple and easy. This file format is not limted to MS Office, but OpenOffice.org understand it very well.

In my project I need to create an Excel file such that my user can generate a summary report in Excel fileformat on button click. All I need to do is add 10 more lines (Except data retrivel logic) in my software, include few library and I am done.

Thanks to http://simpleooxml.codeplex.com/ which make my work easy, this is wrapper highlevel class based on Microsoft OpenXML Format SDK. which include some .NET assembly. This wrapper make it easy for you write Excel of Word document in few lines. A sample for ASP.NET is included from author, though I use it for Windows Application and it works like charm.
