You can be our next Spring VB Guru !! RRS feed

  • General discussion



  • In the northern hemisphere at least, Spring is here! (apparently)

    And at TechNet Wiki, we're hoping you're all hatching new ideas for this month's TechNet Guru competition!

    We're looking for more shoots and leaves of wisdom to sprout forth from the great tree of MSDN/TechNet life.

    We're also hoping some of our old Guru winners will be coming back out of hibernation and flexing their grey matter!

    So, pick up your pen and MARCH into TechNet History! This could truly be the start of something BEAUTIFUL!

    What delightful new arrival will YOU be bringing into this world?

    All you have to do is add an article to TechNet Wiki from your own specialist field. Something that fits into one of the categories listed on the submissions page. Copy in your own blog posts, a forum solution, a white paper, or just something you had to solve for your own day's work today.

    Drop us some nifty knowledge, or superb snippets, and become MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY GURU OF THE MONTH!

    This is an official Microsoft TechNet recognition, where people such as yourselves can truly get noticed!

    HOW TO WIN

    1) Please copy over your Microsoft technical solutions and revelations to TechNet Wiki.

    2) Add a link to it on THIS WIKI COMPETITION PAGE (so we know you've contributed)

    3) Every month, we will highlight your contributions, and select a "Guru of the Month" in each technology.

    If you win, we will sing your praises in blogs and forums, similar to the weekly contributor awards. Once "on our radar" and making your mark, you will probably be interviewed for your greatness, and maybe eventually even invited into other inner TechNet/MSDN circles!

    Winning this award in your favoured technology will help us learn the active members in each community.

    Feel free to ask any questions below.

    Thanks in advance!

    Got any nice code? If you invest time in coding an elegant, novel or impressive answer on MSDN forums, why not copy it over to the one and only TechNet Wiki, for future generations to benefit from! You'll never get archived again!

    If you are a member of any user groups, please make sure you list them in the Microsoft User Groups Portal. Microsoft are trying to help promote your groups, and collating them here is the first step.

    If I have time I will write one next week. However, If I have no time, I will write one for April. I would write one now but my classes are limiting me. I could copy my wireless article over to TechNet wiki from code project too and enter it. I might do that next week and enter a new article in march.

    .paul just mentioned that XAML Guy didn't mention how you would earn medals and recognition points. It's still true (you do earn Recognition Points and Achievement Medals), but that's if your articles win gold medals and get a lot of views.

     

    For example, .paul has earned 3 Achievement Medals from TechNet Wiki. You have earned 4 Achievement Medals and 51 Recognition Points. Recognition Points work differently on Wiki than on Forums. On Forums, you could earn points more quickly, but they snowball on the Wiki, where you earn more and more as you go.

    Another way to get points ...

      Make a small program that impersonate a browser, that makes a request to your article every 2 or 3 seconds (Not faster, so you don't trigger Microsoft security)

    Make the requests thru an anonymous proxy server, not to get caught !!!

    ------------

    At the end of the month, you will have 1,000,000 points

    Maybe I should figure out a way to encrypt IP and TCP headers then I could go hacker pro and no-one would know where the traffic came from! Just kidding, that would not work because all routers along the path to the destination host would need to decrypt the traffic first. That would be cool though if their was a method to do that because that would make someone a lot of money from the government.

  • Encrypt your traffic and send to a foreign server. The server then decrypt it and repeat it. Since it is repeated, not forwarded, there is no way to track back from where it comes from. It will appears to be coming from that server. The server can work it both way, request and response.

    You can have the server to create a random delay before repeating, or pass thru 2 servers,  this way, it get impossible to match you with the traffics from time stamps

  • Ed - someone messed up the msdn development portal on TechNet wiki. It is in Spanish and cannot be translated back. Edit: nevermind I found the latest edit in English and reverted back to it.
