Project BigResource

Since 2005, our team is working 24/7/365 to maintain one of the World's largest resource center for webmasters and programmers. The project comprises a directory of 50,000 Scripts & Tutorials relating a wide range of programming languages from PHP, .NET, ASP and Java to emerging Android & iOS development.

We also maintain an index of over 3 million questions/answers posted over internet relating aforementioned technologies. To learn more about Tracker, click here.

It took us 10 years of hard work to build an index of 3 million plus qualified Q&As by humans, not the bots. Just Crawling and building a database of messages is not an art. The success of this unique project lies in the human editing of these messages by professionals for content validity and definitive solution to various problems to stay focused on the issue & saving time. Compare and see the difference between an original post on a forum and the same edited message added to our index here. No unanswered posts, salutations, lengthy code lines, images, avatars, attachments, closing remarks, reference URLs, signatures etc., just the core issues and solutions to them.

As of June 2014 stats, 50,000 unique visitors/webmasters visit us every day to get benefited from this index. We are working hard and striving harder to provide programmers an unmatchable resource index to their unanswered questions.

Illustrator :: Change Default Color Mode (from RGB To HSB)?
how and if i can change the default color model in illustrator (in the color panel), which is RGB to something else ? (i think colors in HSB and it's a bit annoying changing that every time) i looked it up and couldn't find out. ...

Photoshop :: CS6 / Removing Empty Space From Screen Shot?
I am using Photoshop CS6 to prepare images for use in online Help and a print / pdf user guide for the company's newest software / Web app.  What do you do to remove blank space from a screen capture? I am specifically curious if you add some type of indicator that tells the user that the actual image will be larger. 

The first screen shot (left to right) is a typical screen shot that I've not edited.  In the second one, I've cut the bottom button bar and moved it up to reduce the white space in the image.  In the third image, I added a quick and dirty little "wave" to tell everyone that I've cut out some of the white space. ...

Lightroom :: How To Undo (Update DNG Preview And Metadata)
How can you undo the Photo menu option "Update DNG Preview & Metadata" in the Develop module?
I accidentally hit this at which point Lightroom added a "From Metadata" entry to the history for the file.  It also seemed to update the preview for the file (as seen with before / after).
I tried to undo the change, but all Lightroom did was remove history items ("From Metadata" remained at the top, all the edit sliders stayed the same (even though history was being removed) and the "before" image was permenantly changed.
Not even resetting the image from Library -> Photo -> Develop Settings -> Reset, then "Update DNG Preview & Metadata" worked.
Is the only way back from this operation to delete the DNG and reimport?  It's not as if Lightroom warns you that the operation cannot be undone as with the "Read Metadata from File" command.
 I'm using Lightroom 3.6 on Windows 7 SP 1. ...

Socket.Receive Is Dropping The Last Byte Of Every Packet
I am having trouble with a socket client application written in using Visual Studio 2005. The client connects to a C language socket server that is running on OpenVMS. The problem that I have is that when the server sends a packet, the client does not receive the last byte (of every packet!). I can dump the packets on the network and the data is all there. My current solution is to keep my socket messages short (247 bytes) and send one extra byte past the end of my data.

I would like to include more information in my messages and I cannot find a way to make this work. If I knew 100% how long the packets will be on the network, I could work around this by including an extra byte in just the right places. However, I don't want to make any assumptions about the length of the packets.

Here is a sample of my client receive code:

Private Sub ReceiveMsg()
Dim nTotalBytes As Integer
Dim nNumBytes As Integer

IPhone :: IMessage Suddenly Won't Sign In On 4 And IPad 2
I cant find an iMessage or even just plain old iOS help section.Here's the thing. I have an iPhone 4 (16GB) and an iPad 2 (WiFi only 16GB) both running iOS 5.1Until last week all was fantastic, then I noticed that during an app purchase via App Store, Apple asked me for extra "security data" and the app purchase went fine.Since then however, my iMessages have not been received by ANY of my recipients. A couple of other iMessage users found they couldn't reach me by iMessage either.

I went into settings - messages - and found my iMessage was logged out. I re-enabled it and got a message that "my Apple ID had changed" and I was logged out again! I have checked and triple checked my Apple ID, have even reset it and checked the new one too.

I can make app purchases from the App Store, and can use home sharing for my music and videos so I KNOW my Apple ID is right. But for some reason every time I try to turn on iMessage it refuses my Apple ID and Password. My iPad2 is doing exactly the same and tells me to check my email as they've sent me a "verification link" but it never comes through. I have checked the email address and it's fine. All of my own emails come straight through. In fact I've just joined in here and the welcome email just came through on the same email account

Info:iPhone 4, iOS 5.1, Also iPad 2 on iOS 5.1 ...

Motorola Motoactv :: Coaching Is Repeating Itself?
I searched this forum and didn't see anything like this and I was wondering if anyone else is having this issueI set up the C25K as a series of interval workouts (which btw is tremendous pain using the workout planner) and recently the coaching prompts have been coming on to tell me my time etc as they should but as soon as it finishes it is starting again. Sometimes it will do it 3 or 4 times in a row. It is very distracting but I need the coaching on so I know when to change intervals ...

How To Snap PDF Window So It Doesn't Occupy Whole Screen
I recently got windows 8 and was wondering how I can snap a PDF that I'm looking at so that it occupies roughly 50% of the screen. This is so that I can compare and take notes from two pdf documents at a time (where the other pdf would be snapped on the other part of the screen like on windows 7). Thus far the closest I have gotten is this:

i.e. around 20% of the screen.I tried dragging the green part but this causes it to occupy the whole 90% of the screen. ...

Tablets :: Logitec N600 Touchpad Swipe For Charms
I bought one of these Logitech Touch Lapdesk N600 Review | Everything USB It has a slide out touchpad and it is really really good as it is big -- BUT -- I can't get it to do the swipe from the edge thing to slide out the Charms bar (if that's what it is called) Of course I can use the keyboard to slide the bar out, but I'd like to be able to use the trackpad. The built in trackpad on the laptop does it, so I don't think it is unreasonable to expect the N600 to do that too. Or is it?

I have tried the "latest" software but that has made no difference.

how to make this happen or is there a better USB/WiFi trackpad I can get that does? ...

Windows Locked Hard Drive After Boot Failure
I have windows 8 installed on c drive and Linux mint installed on separate hard disk. Everything was working fine before I installed kubuntu from Linux mint. After installation I couldn't get into windows 8 because it was giving error message 0*c000000f. I tried to refresh Windows but no avail because windows has locked that drive and I couldn't access it. Than I decided to backup important files from windows 8 hard disk from Linux. I accessed windows 8 drive but three folders were missing "Windows" , "Users" and "Program Files(64)" other than that I can access all files and problem is all important data is in user folder.

Than I installed windows 8 on different partition still same thing cant access those three folders. Is there any possible way to simply access user folder? ...
