“Your Text Message Cannot Be Sent” – says your Windows Mobile phone

December 22nd, 2007 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

All of a sudden, when I try to send out SMS/Text messages using my Windows Mobile 5.0 smartphone, it gives me the error message “Your Text Message Cannot Be Sent”.

The following are the possibilities on how to resolve it:

  • Check that the Message center no # is correct. (Use the Data Connection to reset it)
  • Ensure that the phone has enough space <– I found out that my Flash Memory has 0.00Mb left, and on deleting files from the flash memory, sending of SMS works again.
  • Hard reset your phone if all fails 😛

Windows Mobile roxxxx!

Windows SteadyState 2.5 beta is up!

December 7th, 2007 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

Windows SteadyState 2.5 beta is up on Microsoft Connect.

What is Windows SteadyState?

What state is your shared computer in at the end of the day?

  • Hard disk filled with downloaded files?
  • Strange options configured?
  • Programs installed that you don’t want?
  • System infected with viruses and spyware?
  • Computer bogged down for unknown reasons?

Windows SteadyState, successor to the Shared Computer Toolkit, is designed to make life easier for people who set up and maintain shared computers.

An easy way to manage multiple users
An easy way to manage multiple users

You can manage whole groups of users as single user accounts. The new Windows SteadyState console makes it easier than ever to create and modify user profiles.

A locked-down platform for stable shared computing

Not every computer user should have access to every software capability. Your system can be more stable and consistent when you limit user access to control panel functions, network resources, and other sensitive areas.

Set it and forget it
Set it and forget it

Once you have everything set up the way you want it, you can share the computer and rest easy. Any changes a user might make to the configuration or hard disk can be undone by simply restarting the machine.

[Microsoft Live Labs] Volta: Web Development Using Only the Materials in the Room

December 7th, 2007 by kenlin@HK [MVP]


Today, Microsoft Live Labs is announcing the Volta technology preview, a developer toolset for building multi-tier web applications using existing and familiar tools, techniques and patterns. Volta’s declarative tier-splitting enables developers to postpone architectural decisions about distribution until the last possible responsible moment. Also, thanks to a shared programming model across multiple-tiers, Volta enables new end-to-end profiling and testing for higher levels of application performance, robustness, and reliability. Using the declarative tier-splitting, developers can refine architectural decisions based on this profiling data. This saves time and costs associated with manual refactoring. In effect, Volta extends the .NET platform to further enable the development of software+services applications, using existing and familiar tools and techniques.

You architect and build your application as a .NET client application, assigning the portions of the application that run on the server tier and client tier late in the development process. You can target either web browsers or the CLR as clients and Volta handles the complexities of tier-splitting. The compiler creates cross-browser JavaScript for the client tier, web services for the server tier, and all communication, serialization, synchronization, security, and other boilerplate code to tie the tiers together. In effect, Volta offers a best-effort experience in multiple environments without requiring tailoring of the application.
