Backing-Up Your Code is IMPORTANT(And Merry Christmas)

Alright, so funny story about my most recently published application to the Windows Phone marketplace. Seems that my 3rd party SSD(solid state drive) that has just passed it’s warrantee limit decided to fry itself.

You might then ask if I, being the logical and bright person I am, would have a backup! And you would be totally correct. However, taking a look at my backup procedure and records, It seems I had left the code to backup to the C: drive.. which just happened to be the very same drive that CRASHED! Leaving me codeless.

Therefore I don’t want to say it… but the development of MLIA is currently paused/discontinued until further notice. Yet trust me, I will not stop! I actually have an app coming out the next couple of weeks that will be very beneficial to anyone with certain kind of server… Enough about that though. Go! Enjoy your Christmas!

Windows 7 won’t let me port forward?

After a few minutes of trying to port forward a website from my desktop PC to the outside web, and being unsuccessful. I found a simple and easy solution that hopefully might help you to.

  1. First set your router up for the port forward.
  2. On the machine that your website or game host is on, hit the “Start” button.
  3. Search for “firewall”, and select “Windows Firewall with Advanced Security” from the list.
  4. In the center you should see an overview window, select the “Windows Firewall Properties” button on the bottom.
  5. Now a simple properties box should pop up, select the “Private Profile” tab.
  6. Under “Inbound connections” change the option to “Allow”.
  7. Hit “Apply” than “OK” and you can be on your way with your port forwarding computer.

Hope that helps, leave any suggestions or questions in the comments below.
