At work or even as a starter of any new technology we frequently try to search for the articles published for a particular portion of that technology, right? Specially if you are a Microsoft development platform enthusiast, then it gets really big in terms of documentation or tutorials. Microsoft recently published a new project about centralizing all the links and resources grouped by technologies. Its not huge, but it surely helps if you want to search for best articles for any particular technology. Its called Microsoft Developer Guidance Maps. You can read more on this on J. D.

The contents of the feature's solution requires the Solution Sandbox service to be running

If you are developing any Sandbox solution for Sharepoint 2010, then you may have faced an error while deploying any solution to your development server. The error in Visual Studio 2010 output window looks like this generally:
Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': This feature cannot be activated at this time. The contents of the feature's solution requires the Solution Sandbox service to be running.

The fix is simple. You must make sure that your "Sharepoint 2010 User Code Host" service is running. It is disabled by default installation. So, you have enable and run it.

Can not install Devise gem with Ruby 1.9.2 on windows

I was having a try out of devise gem with one of my Rails 3 pet project just yesterday. I installed Ruby 1.9.2 with the one-click installer from rubyinstaller.org and the latest Rails 3.0. But I faced installation problem as usual on windows. The problem was that it was not being able to build its native extensions.
After some research I found out the solution at http://github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/wiki/development-kit. What I was missing is development kit. I just followed the instruction and it was solved and installed devise with my Ruby 1.9.2 correctly.
But I am not sure whether it will work with Rails 3's bundle install command or not. I installed the gem from command line using the command gem install devise --platform=ruby before installing all the required gems with bundle install command . The last parameter platform is a must as it will temporarily use the DevKit to build native extensions. That's it.

Running your ferret server
If you have multiple instances of mongrel running in your production, then you must need to run the ferret server to handle situations when multiple processes are updating ferret index at the same time.

So, you should remember to open the port with other protocol (not http or something else). One very important thing is t…
