Scene jumping problem with gotoAndPlay / gotoAndStop
Flash has an nice concept called 'Scene', using which you separate a full movie into various scenes logically and then work on them. This enables the developer from going insane over the countless layers and frames that they have to jump to. One problem I faced with scene jumping with the recent work is that, when you are gotoAndPlay'ing to a scene from the topmost scene it works pretty well, but the problem arises when you have to jump to a different scene from inside of some object placed somewhere ......

Why isnt my Flash 2004 components working?
I was working on flash file modification project recently and had to make use of drop down (ComboBox) control present in the flash 2004 UI Components. All was set well and when trying to execute the flash file, the component did not work or rather there was no component but just an empty rectangle in the place. After doing some tussling with the flash settings, I remembered that the flash file was created with an older version, and when I had opened it in flash 2004 pro, it had not set the action ......

Running IIS 6.0 and Apache on Port 80 on a single system with different IP's
Recently I was trying to setup SubVersion on my server system, and wanted Apache based access from the clients to the source control. This will give me the option to control the access from a central place and also enable the source control to be access through web at a later stage. So to enable both the application to listen on port 80, I created a sub domain in my DNS which points to a different IP from the one which IIS is currently listening. After making sure the 'Default Web Site' is not listening ......

Posted On Saturday, July 16, 2005 7:13 AM site security breach

Got an announcement regarding a security breach that happened at server, they are asking the users to change the password for their account on the server. Ok, changed my password. Now thinking about it I am wondering if this had been a Microsoft server this information would have got much more attention than it had got now.

Hopefully they are not running windows server for hosting the site to proclaim and put the blame on Microsoft.

Gmail attachment filetype restriction :: Executables not allowed
Gmail seems to not allow files of type extension .exe, .dll and so on which are executable. This is a reasonable step towards cribbing virus, but what about users who want to trade .net libraries? Well, initially I thought we can put in the needed files in a zipped format and then send them. That seemed to be a failed effort as gmail seems to scan inside the zip file contents. Next I tried to encrypt the zip file and then send it as an attachment, it also failed as gmail was able to enumerate the ......
