Lately, there was announcements circulating the mailing lists, about Microsoft Student Festival which will be held soon.. Anyway, with every announcement u find a very highlighted statement that states that attendance is only through invitation, yet you have to register. I'm sure this is great, imagine it wasn't highlighted, people would just go to the "Smart Village" (a5er belad l moslemen) for nothing.. Yet, what's the point of the announcement in the first place. Ppl who need to know are the ones who have invitations & those already know coz the invitation is an announcement itself :D.. what's the point here?? Are they just teasing those who won't come.. lol..

A common bar-code problem

A tiny detail that is usually missed when working with bar-codes (written in fonts like: "3 of 9 Extended", etc) is writing the bar-code text between brackets or asterisks: myLabel.Text = "*"+myBarcode+"*"; or myLabel.Text = "("+myBarcode+")"; Forgetting using one of the above ways makes the code unreadable by bar-code readers..
