Facebook Group

If you have been wary of joining FaceBook because of privacy issues, or as a member do not want to share a post with everyone in your friends' list, now, you can start an exclusive FaceBook group. This new feature of Facebook lets you organize your friends, family or colleagues into mini Facebook communities. Within these communities, you can share posts, links, create events, contact each other and many other things without making your content public. The other useful features include: Group chat – This is like a chatroom where everyone in the group can 'see' and chat with each other; Group email – a single mail would suffice to inform all the members in the group about an event or any other issue, just like a mailing list; Share photos /videos/links/docs: quite useful, especially, in project collaboration; Choice of three settings: Open – Members and content are public; Closed – Your group, and its members, visible to the public, but the content within the group kept private; and Secret – The group, including its members and all the postings, remain invisible to others.

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…
