How to unsubscribe from Mobily and STC (KSA) Facebook SMS Service

Facebook SMS Service is nice feature and it can be setup easily through Mobile tab on your Facebook Account Settings, after that you will start receiving messages according to your preference. The mobile provider will charge you a certain amount by weekly or monthly basis to keep sending it. but if you need to remove the Facebook SMS Service, it is not easy as you think, even if you removed your mobile number from Facebook Account Settings the Mobile Operator will keep charging you . I faced this issue on my Mobily (Saudi)number, every Friday morning I will get two messages stats “ your last call costs SAR 3” and “ you are still registered to the Mobily Facebook SMS service”. I called customer support, went to their office nothing happened. finally I got a solution one of my friend working as a mobile technician.
The solution is as follows

Mobily 
Send a SMS to 606050 contains“UF” without quotation marks in subject field.
if you need to subscribe again send “F” to 606050.

STC 
Send a SMS to 86677 contains“UF” without quotation marks in subject field.
if you need to subscribe again send “F” to 86677.

How to get page width & height (cross-browsers) with javascript

I spent many hours trying & searching for a stable function working fine across the different browsers and at last i found this code which i can say it's amazing code, type of my favorite way in writing down coding (simple & effective).
This function worked fine and tested on

  • IE 6, 8, 9
  • Opera 11.62
  • FF 11.0
  • Chrome 19.0.1084.1 dev-m
  • Safari 5.1.5
  • Comodo Dragon 18.0
  • Avant browser ultimate 2012 build 28

function GetPageXY() {

var PositionXY = { Width: 0, Height: 0 };
var db = document.body;
var dde = document.documentElement;
PositionXY.Width = Math.max(db.scrollTop, dde.scrollTop, db.offsetWidth, dde.offsetWidth, db.clientWidth, dde.clientWidth);

PositionXY.Height = Math.max(db.scrollHeight, dde.scrollHeight, db.offsetHeight, dde.offsetHeight, db.clientHeight, dde.clientHeight);

return PositionXY;
}

Adding HTML5 Drag and Drop to SharePoint Lists

Microsoft SharePoint is an enterprise platform with a long history and vast variety of features, which is why it can’t always react quickly enough to follow emerging Web technology trends. Despite a wide enterprise adoption of SharePoint and a huge effort to provide a broad number of features, SharePoint still lags behind modern CMS products in terms of immersive UIs, such as HTML5 and CSS3.

Samrter & better than "loop statements" With JavaScript Join() function


Al salam alikom ("hi all")
   Today we'll talking about amazing JavaScript function it's the "Join()" function, and I'll explain it with an easy example & little words

before the example let's see what is the definition of (join()) 

The join() method joins all elements of an array into a string, and returns the string.
The elements will be separated by a specified separator. The default separator is comma (,).

Syntax
----------------
 
Join(separator);

separator: Optional. The separator to be used. If omitted, the elements are separated with a comma

So, if we have an array and wee need to display it in html list ("ul")
we have to options

First solution:
--------------------


var arr = ["Cairo", "Alex", "Aswan"];
var list = "<ul><li>";
for (var i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {
    if (i !== (arr.length - 1)) {
        list += arr[i] + "</li><li>";
    }
    else {
        list += arr[i];
    }
}
list += "</li></ul>"
;

Second solution:
-------------------
 which i recommend it and it's very easy & smart

var arr = ["Cairo", "Alex", "Aswan"];      
var list = "<ul><li>" + arr.join ("</li><li>") + "</li></ul>";

The two solutions have the same out and you have the choice to use any one of them, but i think (2) lines of code are better than (11) ;)

(IF, ELSE IF and ELSE) with (? :) syntax

Al salam alikom ("hi all")
          all of us know how to write the IF : ELSE with this syntax 

(Condition) ? IF action goes here : Else action goes here;

today I'll explain how to write  IF, IF Else, and Else with this syntax with very simple sample :)



//Java Script
var x = 0;
(x < 0) ? alert("Error: Number can't be minus...!") : (x >= 1) ? alert(x) : alert("Zero");



// C#
int x = 0;
string result = (x < 0) ? "Error: Number can't be minus...!" : (x >= 1) ? x.ToString() : "Zero";

List of reserved ports that preferred to avoid use it when creating a new web site for "share Point"


Each "SharePoint" developer or administrator know the issue of opening a website hosted on another port of  "80" on any different browser than "IE" Like (Chrome, FireFox, Safari, Opera, ...etc). 
At the past I used to search for a way to open these blocked ports for the different browsers, but once when I was searching for a solution for this issue for safari I found a very important piece of information that made me realize I was mistaken when I believe that those ports that I use are non-reserved, 
This info is a list of the reserved ports that we must avoid use it when creating a website for "SharePoint" or any website that use port number different than "80", and here is the ports list with a hint for each port reserved for
