Apply Custom theme to SharePoint 2013 MySite using feature stapling

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Couple of month’s back I wrote an article about applying custom branding for intranet sites in SharePoint 2013. You can read that article here In SharePoint 2013, if you want to apply custom theme, you need to define a composed look that consists of a spcolor file, a font scheme file and a background image. When you create sites, you need to apply the custom look to reflect your branding. But in the case of my sites, the method of applying theme manually is not appropriate. The Personal sites are created automatically when a user visits the sites link in
the header menu of SharePoint 2013. So it is a good idea to apply your branding to the “personal site” of the user when it is created. Thankfully SharePoint 2013 supports feature stapling, which can be utilized to apply the branding to the site during its creation. Feature stapling is a technique that allows for a feature to be stapled to a site definition by using a support "stapler" feature that defines which features are attached to which site definition. In this walkthrough I will explain how you can apply a spcolor file to the personal site when it is created. For...(Read whole news on source site)

This is part of a series of posts about NHibernate Pitfalls. See the entire collection here.When you want to specify an NHibernate type (implementation of NHibernate.Type.IType) for a property using mapping by code, you might be tempted to do something like this:

Capturing Performance Counter Data for a Process by Process Id

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
The .NET PerformanceCounter class generally is pretty easy to use in order to retrieve performance information. You create a perf counter, initialize the first value to read, let some time pass and then read the next value and Windows gives you access to a plethora of performance information. It’s nice what’s available to make that happen. Process Specific Performance Counters On several occasions, however, I’ve had a need to profile process specific performance counters. For example, I need to look at a specific running application and display its CPU usage similar to the way Process Manager does. At first glance
that seems easy enough as you can simply request a perf counter for a process by its name. Here’s the simple code to do this (I’m using Chrome as my instance I’m profiling here):var perfCounter = new PerformanceCounter("Process", "% Processor Time", "chrome"); // Initialize to start capturing perfCounter.NextValue(); for (int i = 0; i <20; i++) { // give some time to accumulate data Thread.Sleep(1000); float cpu = perfCounter.NextValue()/Environment.ProcessorCount; Console.WriteLine("Chrome CPU: " + cpu); } This works and gets me the CPU status for Chrome.
