Why I cannot use Live account on some Microsoft Services

De ceva vreme ma trezeam ca anumite servicii noi adaugate de catre Microsoft care se acceseaza cu ajutorul unui cont de Live nu functioneaza. Cand doream sa ma logam cu userul si parola nu reuseam.
Acest lucru se intampla atat pe telefon cat si de pe desktop. Unele persoane spuneau ca din cauza ca account-ul este unul vechi (de peste 10 ani) unele servicii nu functioneaza. Mi s-a parut ciudata cauza si nu eram convins de aceasta problema.
Astazi am avut nevoie sa reinstalez Windows 8 pe cateva masini si dupa ce m-am inregistrat cu account-ul meu m-am trezit ca nu mai ma pot loga. Aveam o masina virtuala blocata si o tableta cu Windows 8 blocata. Si asa am ajuns sa sap, sa vad care poate sa fie problema.
Cauza se pare ca este lungimea parolei. In cazul meu aveam o parola de peste 20 de caractere. Am fost nevoit sa schimb parola la una mai scurta de 16 caractere si totul a revenit la normal.
Un singur lucru pot sa spun din pacate .... rusinica.


  1. Sa vezi ce fain e sa nu iti poti activa smartphone-ul din cauza asta (WP7, prima pornire, parola Win Live mai lunga de 16)..

    1. Din aceasta cauza telefonul imi este activat cu alt account. We love to entertain you

ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded

Today blog post will be started with the following error when running DB tests on the CI machine:
threw exception: System.InvalidOperationException: The Entity Framework provider type 'System.Data.Entity.SqlServer.SqlProviderServices, EntityFramework.SqlServer' registered in the application config file for the ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded.

How to check in AngularJS if a service was register or not

There are cases when you need to check in a service or a controller was register in AngularJS.
For example a valid use case is when you have the same implementation running on multiple application. In this case, you may want to intercept the HTTP provider and add a custom step there. This step don’t needs to run on all the application, only in the one where the service exist and register.
A solution for this case would be to have a flag in the configuration that specify this. In the core you would have an IF that would check the value of this flag.
Another solution is to check if a specific service was register in AngularJS or not. If the service was register that you would execute your own logic.
To check if a service was register or not in AngularJS container you need to call the ‘has’ method of ‘inhector’. It will return TRUE if the service was register.
if ($injector.has('httpInterceptorService')) { $httpProvider.interceptors.push('httpInterceptorService&#…

Fundamental Books of a Software Engineer (version 2018)

More then six years ago I wrote a blog post about fundamental books that any software engineer (developer) should read. Now it is an excellent time to update this list with new entries.

There are 5 different categories of books, that represent the recommended path. For example, you start with Coding books, after that, you read books about Programming, Design and so on.
There are some books about C++ that I recommend not because you shall know C++, only because the concepts that you can learn from it.
