Crash Memory Dump Analysis


I was reported a crash problem of a tool developed by me. While searching for relevant information on the web, i found some useful resources about crash memory dump analysis:

Crash Dump Analysis and Debugging Portal, and its blog (there are a few interesting books that I may want to buy later)
Debug Diagnostic Tool - a useful tool from Microsoft
If broken it is, fix it you should - a blog on MSDN about debugging

Have fun.

Modify revision comments in SVN


As mentioned in the SVN book, transaction and revision properties are actually unversioned so it is possible to modify them. However this also means when you changed them the previous values are lost forever. That's why SVN has implemented some mechansim to protect these unversioned propertes.

In order to modify these properties, you need to add a Pre-revision property change hook (pre-revprop-change). You may follow general instructions at here (see the comments in the quoted source). If you are using VisualSVN then just right click on the repository, choose property and browse to the "Hooks" tab to make modification.

That is!

Mozilla Crash Reports


Unfortunately your Firefox/Thunderbird just crashed, and you are prompted the Mozilla Crash Reporter. You are kind enough to fill in necessary information and report to Mozilla. Have you ever wondered where are these crash report sent? Can we check them out?

I just come up with the answer by chance: Mozilla Crash Reports

Have fun :D

Feauter Request: Labels in Google Calendar


I think there is one really useful feature missing in Google Calendar: labeling. With labeling we can group events into categories, e.g. I can make one label for my dear, one for school events, and one for my working appointments. Colors or even icons may help visualizing these events nicely. Further enhancement maybe label-based assess level for different users (i.e. some users can only see the busy/free status and some may be able see the details of certain events).

I don't really don't see why Google still hasn't add this useful feature after requesting by so many people for so long. Do you also want this feature in Google Calendar? Come on, please tell Google here and here (i suppose the "color codes event" is the a similar idea?).

BTW, a To-Do list would also be a great value-add feature for Google Calendar.
