Introducing MaxiVista

What is MaxiVista?
MaxiVista turns any PC into a second monitor of your primary PC! Connect two PCs via network and enjoy the double viewing space.
How does it work?
MaxiVista includes a virtual graphics adapter which fools your primary PC into thinking that there is an additional monitor display installed. Windows enables its multi monitor capabilities and extend the desktop to an additional screen. The content of this extra screen is transmitted to your secondary PC via a standard network connection and displayed by the MaxiVista Viewer program.
Am going to try it soon! On 2 desktops and one laptop.

How to Get Assembly Version?

The question is, when your assembly is executing, how do you figure out the assembly version and file version of your own assembly?
Your assembly (while executing) can be returned from System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly(). So:
Assembly Version: Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Version
File Version: System.Diagnostics.FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location)

Khyal Gallery, is an English language web site in which Iranian painters will be exhibiting their artworks for sell. You can view them in medium size, focus on them for better view and order them if you liked.

Also there is an interview with Mr. Ali Zakeri, “Develop it and topple down”, talking on the artworks he has painted for Bam earthquake. You all remember the disaster…

Windows XP Reloaded!

Despite Microsoft’s repeated denials, the company will indeed release an interim version of Windows XP that will bridge the gap between the initial XP release and Windows Longhorn, which is currently due in late 2005 at the earliest. The interim XP version will ship as a new retail product that replaces existing retail boxed copies of XP and as a set of updates, called XP Reloaded, that existing XP users can install separately. According to sources I contacted this morning, XP Reloaded will include all the features from XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), which is due by midyear, as well as a host of other unique features, including Windows Media Player (WMP) 10.

iBiz Virtual Keyboard

Hehe, where is technology going? We will soon have everything virtually!
“The Virtual Laser Keyboard leverages the power of laser and infrared technology and projects a full-size keyboard onto any flat surface. Compatible with Palm handhelds, Pocket PCs and Laptop PCs. As you type on the laser projection; it analyzes what you’re typing by the coordinates of that location. Unlike many small snap-on keyboards for PDAs, the Virtual Laser Keyboard provides a full-size QWERTY keyboard. It is also smaller and more convenient to use than the folding-type keyboards made by some manufacturers and similar to them in functionality. There are no mechanical moving parts whatsoever in the Virtual Laser Keyboard. It provides a projected image that is the perfect portable input device for PDAs. It’s similar in responsiveness to regular keyboards, but extremely futuristic looking.” Read More . . .
