Searching for code examples

As a developer there has been many times where docs or books haven't helped in finding solutions to programming questions, in such situations the best alternatives to find an answer is either throught forums JGuru,The ServerSide or through search engines such as Google or Yahoo! .

Now there are some new search engines which are spring up , one of which is Koders which allows you to search through source files itself with more than 125,112,016 lines of code, this engine rocks , not only does it give you the codes you are searching for in its actual class but also provides you with the related classes associated with this particular class.

It really is worth the click so dont hesitate!

MSN 7 beta

Hohoho , father xmas bill gates has struck again with the newest version of msn , the "MSN 7", it has some of the features that came with "3 degrees" ,namely winks and nudge which makes your window and your partners window shake! Its pretty cool but use it moderately!. Also the handwritting feature is awesome. This allows you to draw something and send it over to your friend.

MSN also has a new interface but dont expect too much changes. Its supid why they dont use some of the features that msn plus has to offer such as transparent windows , blocking all your contacts at one go etc..

Be careful though this version is still undergoing Beta Testing and i would recommend you to install patches if you are asked to by the msn service.

Also for handwritting capability you would require journal viewer (install if you dont see a handwritting tab on your dialog box)


  • Download MSN 7 beta
  • Journal viewer 1.5
  • Security update for Windows Journal Viewer
