Visual Studio 2012 / VS2012 Dark Theme (Custom Theme)

Visual Studio 2012 / VS2012 Dark Theme (Custom Theme)

I never understood the big deal about customizing the colors of your IDE and I particularly never understood the black and white craze ... until recently :) I installed the Visual Studio 2012 Color Theme Editor form the Tools / Extensions and Updates ... and realized that the Dark theme (which came with the extension) instantly helped me see better and was much easier on the eyes (I always though that argument was BS ... ignorance is a bliss right ...). At the same time I was experimenting...

VS 2012: Add external editor in your file context menu & keyboard shortcuts

So recently I had to deal with some Cold Fusion code and since I had no tools (and no desire to install Eclipse, Abode etc. products just so I can get the syntax of CF looking colorful) I decided to...

The Main Purpose

The Main Purpose

There are sins which are unpaid Beauty we left to fade Anger we fuel to burn Lessons we failed to learn There are lies to which we pray Trust they can’t repay Hopes we wish are true Lives they can’t renew There are dreams we let astray Names...

Different people different interests and hobbies. I have realized that on top of my current hobbies one has began to take more and more from my free time (which I tend to not have that much of these days...

One Page Resume Template

One Page Resume Template

For quite a long time I have been looking for a simple, elegant and well formed short resume template which at the same time can "store" a good amount of information. After some experimentation I have one which I do think...

XenForo Theme: Aurora

XenForo Theme: Aurora

I have been looking for some time for a good forum solution and I got hooked by XenForo (http://www.xenforo.com). Actually hooked will be an understatement since after 1 week of experimentation I made the decision to create a theme for one of my website projects. So long story short after a number of weeks I ended up with a theme, which I call Aurora and which you can see from the links bellow (and download @ the bottom of...

NHibernate HQL Parameters check for NULL (Single & Comma Separated Value)

NHibernate HQL Parameters check for NULL (Single & Comma Separated Value)

NHibernate as we know or have heard from the "dev next door" is quite a piece of ORM code, and due to my recent interactions with it I decided to share a little something I uncovered while in the cage fighting it. In most cases a parameter needs to be passed to a query so that it can act as a filter for the results returned. Queries as well as stored procedures accept them and love them passionately. Now HQL does...

Traits of the great software developer

Traits of the great software developer

I am quite convinced that it takes a few character traits in order for a developer to be considered great and once those are in place, the foundation is there to guarantee a long and successful professional career. I will...

Resume Template & Guidelines

The species known as “software developers”.

Human beings are quite a fascinating excuse for a living organism when examined closely without a sensible concern for their fragile existence. They spend about half of their lifetime dreaming of being something else while in most cases being...

Hi there stranger ...

Welcome to Akrion.net!

Akrion.net is a vehicle for sharing ideas, theories, stories, poetry, photography, believes, and opinions very close and even somewhat personal to me ... Akrion. Pseudonym which has stuck to me for quite some time now and as it seems has no intention of leaving me.

To read more about the man behind the "mask" check my ABOUT section although my experience with Blogs and their "about" pages tells me that most likely you won't ... which is absolutely fine. I do understand. Time is of an essence these days and you came here as a visitor looking for something specific. I hope you will find it and will also find you time spend on Akrion.net worthwhile.

Above this paragraph you will find my latest articles & blog posts and bellow some of my latest design & photography work. If you want to see more of these check out my PHOTOGRAPHY site.

In case you would like to ask a question, express a concern or for any other reason which is not in any way shape of form described as "spam" please check my CONTACT page.

Enjoy!
