Spell Check, Hyphenation, and Thesaurus for .NET with C# and VB Samples - Part 1: Single Threading - CodeProject

Spell checking, hyphenation, and synonym lookup via thesaurus are the
Open Office spell checker Hunspell functions. The NHunspell project
makes these functions available for .NET applications. As the Open
Office spell checker Hunspell is used in a vast amount of Open Source
applications, it could also be the first choice for .NET applications.
Beyond Open Office, Hunspell is currently used in the Mozilla
applications Firefox and Thunderbird, the browsers Google Chrome
Opera, and last but not least, in the new Apple MAC OS/X 10.6 "Snow
Leopard" Operating System.

So what’s the different between Responsive Web Design, Adaptive Web Design and RESS? | Aaron T. Grogg

Responsive Web Design (RWD), Adaptive Web Design (AWD), and Responsive Web Design + Server Side Components (RESS). 

an article about AWD

AWD is described as making decisions on the server as to which
components, CSS, JS, etc., that the user should get, based on the device
they are using to view the page at this moment.

book Adaptive Web Design: Crafting Rich Experiences with
Progressive Enhancement.

RESS was coined by in his article RESS: Responsive Design + Server Side Components.

AWD and RESS users get only what they need for their device. It’s
really all about reducing deliverables, thus saving bandwidth, thus
improving download speeds and time to render, thus making for a better

GitHub Flow Like a Pro with these 13 Git Aliases

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
GitHub Flow is a Git work flow with a simple branching model. The following diagram of this flow is from Zach Holman's talk on How GitHub uses GitHub to build GitHub. You are now a master of GitHub flow. Drop the mic and go release some software! Ok, there's probably a few more details than that diagram to understand. The basic idea is that new work (such as a bug fix or new feature) is done in a "topic" branch off of the master branch. At any time, you should feel free to push the topic branch and create a
pull request (PR). A Pull Request is a discussion around some code and not necessarily the completed work. At some point, the PR is complete and ready for review. After a few rounds of review (as needed), either the PR gets closed or someone merges the branch into master and the cycle continues. If the reviews have been respectful, you may even still continue to like your colleagues. It's simple, but powerful. Over time, my laziness spurred me to write a set of Git aliases that streamline this flow for me. In this post, I share these aliases and some tips on...(Read whole news on source site)

Small touches: Complex text in RavenDB

This is what we call a “mini feature”, something that you’ll probably not notice unless pointed out to you. Often, we want to store documents that contain multi line strings properties. JSON has a very simple way to handle that: And it works, and if the text is small, it is even readable. But it isn’t really working on anything even remotely complex or long. So we have worked to fix that: Now you can actually read this much more easily. We run into this when we look at stack trace information, where without line breaks,
it is nearly impossible to see what is going on....(Read whole news on source site)
