01 Mar 2013MSBuild Community Tasks XmlRead and XmlUpdate
Importing the MSBuild Community Tasks into a Visual Studio project can make difficult tasks easy. In my scenario I wanted to hook into the BeforeBuild target so I could modify the defaultVersion attribute in a combres.xml before TeamCity created a Release build.Read more...
03 Nov 2012Christmas Laser Lights - 2012
I recently purchased a Christmas themed laser light to augment my LED christmas lights. I wanted something snazzy and with a unique look. A laser light show was perfect. It cost roughly AUD$68 + $12 postage.
Take a look at the video, I think this will explain how it looks better than I can describe with words.
- It came with a remote to turn it on/off, change colours, change mode. (Though I doubt I will use the remote much).
- Also included was a small (10cm) tripod.
- It’s light in weight, and very powerful (pointing at trees 50-100m away you could see the laser still).
- The “XMAS” wording is printed backwards (hoping to open the box and fix).
- It’s not waterproof, so you need to bring it in of a night.
I knew Microsoft would have solved this issue and I couldn’t find anything using Google. That’s because I was googling ‘Windows 8 Store App page inspector’ whereas I should have been Googling ‘Windows 8 Store App DOM Explorer’.
- Debug the Metro app in Simulator or Local Machine,
- Switch back to Visual Studio 2012,
- Press F12 or click DOM Explorer.
