When is a scenario, not a scenario?

When we are using UML under VISIO, of course!

If you ever have received the message "Shape protection and/or layer properties prevent execution of this command." under Microsoft Office VISIO (Version 2000 – 2007, to present?), then you know what I mean:



Fortunately, the solution to the problem is easy: Just right-click on the offending shape to modify its protection:



After activating the dialog, simply clear the Text check-box:



… and you will be allowed to do some really strange, bizarre things …



- like adding a text description to your Use Case Scenarios!

But wait – if you are going to have more than a single scenario, then rather than doing the same operation over, and over, and over, and over again, rather than doing something rational (like re-using that tool bar symbol), be sure to cut-and-paste that first shape a few dozen times.

(Hey: Wouldn’t it be great if those who developed our tools, had to use them?)


Enjoy,

WebPing 2 Released 

WebPing Overview


Today a lot of the more “affordable” web hosting companies do not use the ping service. Even more insidious, even when the ping program might seem to be working properly, more often than not an RFC Ping Request is in reality being re-directed to another server. -A server typically designed to make your site look a lot more responsive than it really is.

WebPing was designed to provide us with a genuine idea of what our users are experiencing. Because WebPing uses the same HTTP services that our users do, WebPing will provide us a far, far better idea of the type of throughput our users are having at our web site(s.)

WebData


Starting with Version 2, WebPing also saves WebPing data on the server. Uploading the webping.php and style.css files are all that is required to start collecting, viewing, managing, and downloading your client-ping statistics.

Because the WebPing data are stored on your host in a loosely-delimited comma separated (CSV) format, WebPing data can be readily used by spreadsheets and other programs.

Ease of Use


Finally, we believe that everyone needs to know if their web server(s) are responding as expected. For this reason, we designed WebPing to be horrifically easy to use. Written in 100% pure Java, WebPing will also work on any platform where Java 1.6 is available.

For more information, please refer to the information in the WebPing user interface. You can download the program using the RELATED LINK, below.


Enjoy!
