Windows Server 2003 x64 Problem with ASP

This is my first post from USA, so welcome to USA 😀
today I tried to run a .asp (Active Server Page) project in “Windows Server 2003 x64” (IIS 6.0) and it keep giving me 404 “Page not found” error. Seems like it does not accept .asp file.

I’ve checked everything, ASP was installed and it was set to be allowed under “Web Service Extentions”, but the problem was solved by running this command:

The Best Antivirus Even Got Better 2

Microsoft has just release the “Microsoft Security Essentials 2” and I just loved it, not only because of some new features like:

Network inspection system
Windows Firewall integration
Enhanced protection for web-based threats
New protection engine

But also the are some secret changes:

1) You can now install the MSE on Server platforms. I’ve just tested it on Windows Server 2008 x86 & x64 and also the new Windows Server 2008 R2 x64.
Before this I had to install the great Microsoft Forefront Client Security, by just a little [hacky] command file; but this was not the problem, the problem was I had to configure WSUS to download the definition updates for both MSE and Forefront and file size was about 150MB average.

2) WSUS download the MSE 2.0 Definition updates cumulatively, means less download size if you want to download the definition daily or more.

Horror Days are Over!!!

According to liveside.net Microsoft unleashed the “Full-Seasion SSL” for hotmail, you must visit https://www.hotmail.com to start using this feature.

You might ask why I’m so excited about it, because using this feature the Goverments (like ours) cannot access your email while you’re using it and so the horror days for “The Grean Party” is over and now they can send and recieve emails and no one could read it, Thanks MS; and hey Google it’s your turn!

In Memory of Windows Live Spaces

Last night Microsoft has just decided to shutdown the Windows Live Spaces and kicked our asses and gave us some generous choices to either delete or download or move our space to WordPress; And I just feel like being rapped (Not that I’ve ever been :D), I’ve been using Windows Live Spaces since 2007 (it was a beta product at that time) and I’ve seen it being updated lots of times and the last update which was about spam comments was great.

Anyway the WordPress is good (much much better), with lots of new features and I like it and I know I’m gonna be a WordPress blogger from now on. The only thing I miss here is “The Integration” with Windows Live which I like the most in the Windows Live Services.

P.S: To Sina Hakami, it is now have the “Like It” feature.

Windows Internet Explorer 9.0

As you might read my last entry, I’ve been waiting to test the full beta version of IE 9.0, and I’m now and I have to say WOW, it is good, I mean Microsoft is in the right pass (Windows 7, IE 9.0, Kinect, WinPhone 7). It is absolutly the best web browser of them all and yes it is as good as chrome 6.0. So here is my review:
 
Pros:
1) It is fast and clear
2) The thing that every tab can be grabbed and it would be a new window: It is chrome mimic but who cares it ain’t a patent.
3) If any tab hangs the other tabs are fine now
4) The Download manager, atleast good job. If I remember right it was first announced in early beta stage of Vista but them it disapeared.
5) The messages are now appeared in the bottom of page, WOW no more popups, I hate them.
6) The "Addon Load Time Checker" it was first announced in IE 8.0 but now it is automatic.
 
Cons:
1) The font thing!!!
2) When a tab is fetching the data (nothing to show) and you switch through tabs will show the last tab contents but it could show a loading symbol
3) This one I remeber in all versions: The save page progress (File->Save) still hangs all the tabs in that browser, Man look at what chrome do about it (a progressbar in the bottom of the page would do the thing), I think this procedure is an "Ancient Code" which no one would go after it 😀 (here is where I can help)
 
If you see something else comment me about it,

DELL Inspiron DUO

Atlast after 4 years (I really don’t remember maybe 5 or more) DELL released a laptop I would like to buy, it is called "Inspiron DUO". It is a tablet and also at the same time a laptop, a new way of making tablet without a week point "THE HINGE". It is a 10" touch screen notebook (PLEASE make it a capacitive/ multi touch screen) with a dual core/ hyperthread enabled Intel Atom N550 (1.5 GHz/ 1MB cache/DDR3/ 64bit/… for more info checkout http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=50154&code=Intel%c2%ae+Atom%e2%84%a2+Processor+N550+(1M+Cache%2c+1.50+GHz) nothing else is known but I HOPE 2GB RAM and 64GB SSD and NVidia ION 2 (this is what I don’t think would be possible ’cause the N550 has a built-in VGA). The only down side of the CPU is the Intel® VT is not supported, but I’m sure it is more powerfull that N270/N280 (N270 has 47 million transistors but the N550 has 176 millions WOW!!)
 
The only things I hope are 2GB RAM and dual touch capabality and the price about 700$ and I would buy one.
 
 
P.S: DELL has just stole the BUZZ around Windows Internet Explorer 9, which would be beta(ed) to day, I’m very excited to test it and to see if microsoft is going in the right direction (and IF YES, I have to say I love you BALLMER, you’ve made them all wrongs->right; You know Vista->7, IE8->9, WinMo6.x.x.x.x->WinPho7 …)
