EXIF Date + Windows Create Date

Today, I downloaded all the photos I have taken over the years from my android phone onto my PC. After bulk renaming the files and re-uploaded I noticed the sort order of my photos were out of order. It appears that android displays photos in the gallery based on the file create date. Since I did a bulk rename on my files all the create dates were set to today’s date.

I needed a way to reset the create date to the photo taken date, enter EXIF Date Changer, this tool will scan all the files in a specified folder and reset the dates, if can do:

EXIF Create Date -> Window File Create Date

Window File Create Date -> EXIF Create Date

Until next time!

Using System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration(“/”)

If you are using WebConfigurationManager to retrieve your dbase connection strings please make note of one very important character:

System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration(“/”)

I spent about 30 mins trying to track down the problem. I was able to read my connection strings on my local machine but not on production. What gives?

On our production environment the app was deployed as a virtual application. The code above would attempt to read from the default website the virtual app is running under.

If you wish to always retrieve the connection strings from your current app domain make sure to use (notice the tilde):

System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration(“~”)

Great tool for analyzing your hard drive space

I have been using a tool called WinDirStat for a couple years now.

It scans your hard drive and produces a report that displays all your directories and how much space each directory is using.

In the past it has helped me track down large files produced by windows error reporting (on Windows 2008 server). Or the more common Dropbox cache folder.

Download WinDirStat by clicking here.
