R unning SMH Half marathon – 2011

Hiya Guys, Back again with a post that talks about “H ow good it was to run Half Marathon, interesting huh?” Keep reading πŸ™‚

15th May 2011, 5:30AM alarm goes off. Got ready to get going for race. James and I planned to meet before race start @ 6:25 AM, which I couldn’t meet him just because I am slack :P. But, I caught up with him at at about 2Km mark.

Anyway, I had been diagnosed with shin splints on both legs a month and half ago. So, obviously, I haven’t been training or preparing myself for “Big Race”. My physio therapist have been telling me “Start from micky mouse stuff (in other words, damn you don’t run more than 10k πŸ˜€ )”. Physio-therapy sessions really helped me get better or heal faster with shin splints injury(*Physio therapy is expensive here in this part of world).

How the hell did i get shin splints???, Well, I ran “Full marathon” in my home town in india. Really, I did not practice enough for “Marathon”. I think there are more than one factor that I can blame for my shin splints. 1. Not enough training, 2. Started walking at about 22Km mark, and 3. May be Running shoe.

First one is straight forward, Not enough training, and second one is just result of first one. I started walking at about 22Km mark and rest of the race then onwards. And It is obvious, Fast walking puts more pressure on the shin. and Third is in the “may be” category.

Here, is the stats how I went πŸ™‚ (*courtesy of RunKeeper)

S upport experience with Aspose, SpreadsheetGear and Telerik

H ello, Where are you? I am here, Where are you?

It is something from work, as this post is about sharing my experience dealing with Aspose, SpreadsheetGear and Telerik. And the experience gained working at SolveXia

This post is not endorsing any product or comparison of any such.

For those of you don’t know, Aspose is library which is used to manipulate Excel/Word and much more without using Microsoft word. SpreadsheetGear is mainly focused around Excel file manipulation. and Telerik is third party user control library.

First, I will talk about Aspose. These guys understand the competition in the market that they have, and always up for helping client with support query. Aspose guys are very open to clients suggestion and more over they take opportunity and implement valid suggestions relatively quickly. I can’t recall, Aspose ever disappointed me with support. I see and use Aspose library today and I can say that “It takes small small refinement in software which makes it super stable and best”, I have been using Aspose library for last 2 years.

Second, I will talk about SpreadsheetGear. These guys are mainly focused on Excel manipulation and has great excel library. SpreadsheetGear doesn’t do release very often (sometimes twice a year, mostly once a year). SpreadsheetGear performs very well with memory pressure. Support is not one of the best, but they will provide hotfix if need to. I have been using SpreadsheetGear for 1 year now. I was quick at learning the SpreadsheetGear library, may be reason being, I was familiar with Aspose. SpreadsheetGear is more defensive when it comes to supporting new feature request.

This is to ensure that no adverse side levitra shop uk effects occur. They are additionally about to be on a financially limited where buy viagra grocery budget, eating more fast and convenient foods, saving their money instead for more partying extravagances such as drugs and grapefruit juice/products. Most of the men and especially young ones live in the toxic world, don’t we? So, what are the toxic substances? These substances are harmful for the viagra tablets 100mg human body. It comes in blue and white cloverleafbowl.com generico viagra on line color without any extra accessories. Third and last, Telerik. These guys have one of the best control library in the market. They release at good pace, hotfixes are available relatively quickly. Support is really great, if the problem/bug/question is being presented is clear enough to get thru in first go (I always try to represent my problem in a separate VS2010 project/solution and send it to Telerik). Resistance to new feature request is there, but its not tug of war if request is conveyed with bullet point benefits πŸ™‚

I have and is still using all of the above three library, they all are great. Why, we use 2 library (Aspose & SpreadsheetGear) to do excel manipulations?, because Some features are great in Aspose whereas some are great in SpreadsheetGear. Its best of breed approach and lowers the risk on business being dependent on one library.

Well, too much talk about them. (But I gotta make sure, what I say, I deliver)

Thats all for today my friends,

Have a nice time !
