Excessive CPU usage in WheaAttemptPhysicalPageOffline when using Intel HD graphics – via Intel Communities

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/12/12

I had some excessive CPU usage (30% on a 4-core system) inside WheaAttemptPhysicalPageOffline when using an Intel HD graphics 2500 GPU.

At first I thought I needed to convince IT to update the drivers: Intel HD graphics causing high CPU utilization | Intel Communities.

Then I closed all Visual Studio 2013 instances and the CPU usage went to normal.

So I’m suspecting a WPF issue somewhere.

.NET remnants of the past: Visual Studio .NET 2003 cannot start debugging as the assembly is missing

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/05/15

Boy, was this Visual Studio .NET 2003 stuff a long time ago.
Bumped into this one:


---------------------------
Microsoft Development Environment
---------------------------
Visual Studio cannot start debugging because the debug target 'C:\develop\VS-2003\VS-2003-BASE\Source\AppTest\bin\Debug\AppTest.exe' is missing. Please build the project and retry.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

Indeed, Visual Studio was right: it didn’t understand the Release build existed like Visual Studio 2005 and up does:

C:\develop\VS-2003\VS-2003-BASE\Source\AppTest\obj\Release\AppTest.exe

.NET/C#: Ctrl+R+R toggles wrap in Visual Studio.NET 2003 (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/05/14

A while ago, I had to do some emergency fixing in Visual Studio .NET 2003 as – despite it is unsupported – a client was still using it.

By habit, I tried to rename a variable using the Ctrl+R+R shortcut for Refactor Rename. It didn’t work, and I was not surprised: this refactoring was introduced in Visual Studio 2005.

A while later, I started to notice that WordWrap was turned on in the code editor.

It took me a few minutes and a quick search to find out the two are related:

Visual studio 2003: ctrl+R+R is the shortcut to toggle WordWrap in the code editor.

Thanks Micah for answering that!

c# – Is there a library that gets the media type and subtype out of a HttpWebResponse/WebResponse ContentType? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/16

Just asked this on SO: C# – Is there a library that gets the media type and subtype out of a HttpWebResponse/WebResponse ContentType?.

Anyone here or at G+ that has a hint?

The ContentType property of (Http)WebResponse maps to the HTTP/1.1 Content-Type which is a Media-Type that contains a type/subtype optionally followed by parameters which are attribute=value pairs.

I’m mainly interested in the type/subtype and the charset parameter.

The charset is mapped from HttpWebRequest.CharacterSet.

Is there a library that just retrieves the media type/subtype of the ContentType?
