PureText

With PureText you can copy text from a web page or a document and paste it as a simple text in another application, without the formatting. Using PureText is plain simple, use its hot-key to paste text instead of using the standard CTRL+V hot-key. To configure PureText, right-click on its tray icon and choose "Options" from the pop-up menu. The default hot-key is WINDOWS+V, but this can be altered. Please note PureText removes only the rich formatting from text. This includes the font face, font style (bold, italics, etc.), font color, paragraph styles (left/right/center aligned), margins, character spacing, bullets, subscript, superscript, tables, charts, pictures, embedded objects, etc. PureText would not modify the actual text, and will not remove or fix new-lines, carriage returns, tabs, or other white-space. It cannot be used to fix word-wrap or clean up paragraphs. PureText v2.0, a mere 28 KB utility, can be downloaded at http://stevemiller.net/downloads/puretext20_x86.zip

ASP.NET 3.5 interview questions with answers

The IHttpHandler and IHttpHandlerFactory interfaces ?The IHttpHandler interface is implemented by all the handlers. The interface consists of one property called IsReusable. The IsReusable property gets a value indicating whether another request can use the IHttpHandler instance. The method ProcessRequest() allows you to process the current request. This is the core place where all your code goes. This method receives a parameter of type HttpContext using which you can access the intrinsic objects such as Request and Response. The IHttpHandlerFactory interface consists of two methods - GetHandler and ReleaseHandler. The GetHandler() method instantiates the required HTTP handler based on some condition and returns it back to ASP.NET. The ReleaseHandler() method allows the factory to reuse an existing handler.Does .NET CLR and SQL SERVER run in different process?Dot Net CLR and all .net realtes application and Sql Server run in same process or we can say that that on the same address be…
