Chiaro no?!?

April 24, 2008

Errore server nell’applicazione ‘/test2’.
Impossibile trovare ContentPlaceHolder ‘cphTestBottom’ nella pagina master ‘/test2/masters/emptytest.master’. Verificare l’attributo ContentPlaceHolderID del controllo del contenuto nella pagina del contenuto.

Questa versione mi piace di piu’:

Server Error in ‘/test2’ Application.
Cannot find ContentPlaceHolder ‘cphTestBottom’ in the master page ‘/test2/masters/emptytest.master’, verify content control’s ContentPlaceHolderID attribute in the content page.

Un altro caso di localizzazione da curare?

I’m lovin it!


Human factor

April 20, 2008

The completely automated baggage system at Heathrow Airport’s new Terminal 5 has failed since its first day (read).
Is human factor the root cause ?
Is blind faith in computer the cause ?
Is science (=computer) failing ?

Most of the times it’s human factor, whenever blind faith or wrong planning.

Wikipedia has its page here.

If you need a short good tutorial, W3C School has a good one: Introduction to XHTML .

GPS vs Software Development

April 12, 2008

GPS rules:

  • the shortest path isn’t always the fastest
  • the fastest path isn’t always the cheapest
  • the cheapest path isn’t always the easyest

It’s something I’ve already hear about … but where???

Software development ?!??!

Look at these software rules:

  • I can do it quick.
  • I can do it cheap.
  • I can do it well.

( cit.: Pick any two. 😉 )

It’s so strange that lots of people still don’t know these basic rules. 😦
