I thought I would collect some links on Data Center:
http://www.cio.gov/modules/ – the US government owns 2100 data centres and plans to consolidate those to 800 by 2015.
http://www.uptimesoftware.com/ = tier definitions for data center
http://www.datacenterknowledge.com/ = great source of information
http://www.datacenterpulse.org/ = as above & home of the dcp stack
http://notesfromtheconsultantsjungle.com/ = useful knowledge
http://tc99.ashraetcs.org/ = ASHRAE heat guidelines
http://www.afcom.com/ = organizers of Data Center World
http://virtualizationreview.com/ = annoying advert on every page, but otherwise good
Some events: 23-24 May 2012, Nice. http://www.datacentres2012.com/ 14-17 May 2012, Santa Clara, California. Uptime Institute Symposium 2012 = http://www.datacenterjournal.com/press-release/uptime-institute-announces-7th-annual-symposium-featuring-digital-infrastructure-convergence-theme-and-a-modular-data-center-campus/
And of course the analysts: Gartner, IDC, Forrester, etc.

I always forget all these links: windows marketplace app publishing
… more later, but this is where it all starts: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh286399.aspx
admobs has a beta available for windows phone. I thought to use it, but problem is that you already need to have your app published, so I guess I will fragment my earnings across google and microsoft.
For those interested, here are the fields you need to fill in:
App name, Marketplace Deep Link, Category, App description.
In OS 7.5 (or version 7.1 – very confusing), they have fixed the browser behaving badly scenario whereby bing translate had been breaking out of frames and picking up a screen that was smaller than expected
Along the way, I made a few discoveries:
http://www.myhttp.info/ = prints out your user agent.
Some common flavours:
- desktop = Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0; managedpc)
- windows phone 7.5 = Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows Phone OS 7.5; Trident/5.0; IEMobile/9.0; Nokia; Lumia 800)
For an explanation on user agent strings.
For small memory windows phones, eg: Nokia’s new under-256Mb phone, you are being encouraged to launch existing applications through tasks. Check out this link for How to: Use the Web Browser Task for Windows Phone. This opens a new web browser outside of your app, back button goes back into your application.
I used webBrowser1.Navigate(new Uri(url1+extraOnEnd, UriKind.Absolute), null, “User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; MSIE 9.0; WIndows NT 9.0; en-US))”); to rewrite headers – which worked ok.
Some other code samples available on:
Finally got everything working on Windows Phone… welcome to FinnGo on Windows 7!
I got frustrated at not having the latest version of Android on my HTC Desire, so I downloaded cyanogenmod. Amazing. Got titanium pro as well for backups.
Type error: Error: String types not allowed (at ‘configChanges’ with value ‘keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|uiMode|screenSize|smallestScreenSize’). AndroidManifest.xml
Solution: Update build APIs to greater than 3.2 – see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7902121/admob-cant-display-ads-because-of-configchanges.
Then I got a problem with proguard. I needed to replace: keepclasseswithmembernames with keepclasseswithmembers. However you also need to do a few more actions. Check here for more: http://groups.google.com/group/android-developers/browse_thread/thread/7606320e664fec9b?pli=1
Oh no, when will this end? Been trying to upgrade my app now for 4 hours… and still not there…
Latest error is: Error inflating class com.google.ads.AdView
This is due to sdk v17 – you need to copy the admobs into the /libs folder of your project.
I don’t know if this is good news or bad… good news is that i have been programming android for over 1 year now. Bad news is that your debug certificate expires and then prevents any compilation. Nothing appears in the error window. However you can see it in the problems window.
