Failed to access IIS metabase

"Failed to access IIS metabase" If you get this error , you must probablly Installed IIS after you Installed VS2005.
I corrected this error by doing the following.

open a command line
go to your .Net Framework (Example: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727>)
And type
aspnet_regiis -u (This may give a error, anyway type the next command)
aspnet_regiis -i

Good Luck

How to choose from Curtin Vs SLIIT Degree (Curtin SLIIT)

You are going to 3rd year and wondering which path to choose from Curtin Vs SLIIT degree??
Here are some tips from my personal experiences.

Curtin degree is not that hard than most people say, I also did the Curtin degree and passed all subjects without repeating a single exam.

Benefits of Curtin degree,
1) You have to do 4 subjects but SLIIT degree has 5.
2) Degree is recognized all around the world.
3) you get a degree in 3 years.
4) you can do the 4th year as well for double degree.

Bad side of Curtin degree,
1) Expensive than SLIIT degree.
2) Repeat is also expensive.
3) Exam papers are created by Curtin
4) Since repeats are expensive the pressure in exams is much more than SLIIT degree.

Good Luck
JAYA WEWA!!!

SLIIT : Saddest Day Of My SLIIT Life

Today is the saddest day of my SLIIT life.
Curtin CC 2nd midterm marks were given to students and I missed it, because I was late when I saw it in the courseweb.
The sad part of it is that all other students went to that and no one even bothered to call me or my GF when we were missing :-(
I know it's not their fault but I feel really sad about it.
Today I learned one of the best lessons in my life, Yes you guessed it right.

SLIIT : Curtin Final Exam

Curtin final exam for SLIIT students is due on 10th to 15th October.
It's been a reasonably hard week for me because of my long held back studies.
there are many things to cover in a short time of period. I'm sure that rest of the weeks before the exam would need lot of hard work so I can get a pass.

Note: Please guys do your work on time and never fall back on your work.

SLIIT : To You My Friend

There are some students who are total IT Geeks.

There are some who do nothing and just wonder around and laugh at others thinking that they are cool, believe me it's not.
I have only this to say,
Life sucks and it get worse when you get more older.
So please feel free to enjoy your life.
Smokers, smoke (try to quit)
Drinkers, drink.
Occasional weed is OK with me ;-)
Never go to extreme of anything fun or study.

SLIIT BUS


I must agree that this is a very nice service offered by the SLIIT to its students.
It's much more cheaper and faster to go home than a normal public bus.
This is also a very good advertising for SLIIT, when the bus go in the road people stop to take another look at it because of its logos.

SLIIT : How To Make Web Sites Load Faster

The purpose of the HOSTS file is to allow you to manually enter IP addresses associated with websites, so the DNS server can quickly resolve an address. Say you know that google.com is the IP address 64.233.187.99 — you could enter that into the HOSTS file so when your machine requests google.com, it will immediately know to go to http://64.233.187.99/.

Example

c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\
Open the hosts file using NotePad
Add this line in the bottom
127.0.0.1 localhost
64.233.187.99 www.google.com
(XP Only)

You can add many lines as you like.
If you need to find IP's visit http://www.whois.net/

SLIIT : How about video learning

I think it is about time we start video learning in SLIIT. Lecturers can make the lecture videos available in the courseweb. It will be a great help when a student misses a class.
Main drawback of this system is that nobody will ever come to lectures when you can get the video from the courseweb.
It is our responsibility to use the resources correctly and wisely.
