Developing RSS feed in Screensaver With C# Express Edition 2005



Alrite ladies follow these steps to make your own screen saver. Whether you'll do it or not do it following my advice is NOT my concern. I'll set it occasionally for the heck of it for myself.

Here is a screen shot of having done it all and setting and validating my feed on the Screen Saver that we just cooked.



For whole set of print screens on setting up and running it then see it on my foto gallery here.
Steps are simple...
  • download the C#Express 2005 from MSDN
  • Start a project (as shown in the print screen)
  • Build it
  • Save it
  • Go to the folder where it was saved
  • Check under /bin and find the *.scr file
  • Copy that file to your windows\system32 dir (if in XP)
  • Select the NEWS screen saver
  • Edit settings and image(s) of your choice
  • And Run it
simple ain't it!

And play this AVI file to see how it works.

PS: As you can see it was a *Ready Baked code*, no development but you might want to...
o Do a mouse roll over to open a particular news directly from the screen saver, and we'll see how we can do that!

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
