Microsoft releases a new programming language called Visual F#…

Previously in 2003 Microsoft released Visual J# with Visual Studio.NET 2003 and continued the language with another release with Visual Studio 2005…

Now this year Microsoft released another language called Visual F# which I found by reading wikipedia as a language related to ML and Standard ML…

I downloaded Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate using Usenet Servers…I took a trail and evaluation period account and paid 1 USD to Binverse ( www.binverse.com ) through PayPal to access Usenet …I only wanted to download Visual Studio 2010…

Microsoft released Visual Studio 2010 on 12 April this year!!!

My question is what will be the developer response to Visual F# ?… From a developers point of view, it might not be successful !… Visual J# is no longer included with Visual Studio…Visual C# and Visual Basic is very successful…On the other hand regarding Visual  C++ , the majority of developers still use native C++ with Microsoft Foundation Classes ( MFC ) and C++/CLR or the .NET version of C++ haven’t been adopted that much as Microsoft had anticipated…

Time will tell if Visual F# is successful…We really have to wait for the next few months and see what happens!!!

Why I prefer heavy metal music…

It is about to be 7 years I have been listening to heavy metal music…My favorite been Metallica and Megadeth…But I know Metallica and the grunge band Pearl Jam since 1994…It was late 2003 I began playing Metallica…Before that I hadn’t got the opportunity to listen to these bands…

Why I do prefer now heavy metal music ? Because the lyrics of these songs are beautiful and the distortion guitars are beautiful to me…THEY WILL NEVER HAVE A RELAXATION EFFECT…Some songs are contrary to my beliefs as a Muslim…And I don’t believe a word in these songs…I don’t prefer the progressive style of OPETH…The songs are death metal with durations of 1 hour…

Some of my friends say it is not my style to listen to heavy metal music…WHO SAID SO?…Music has nothing to do with the type of clothes you wear and you praying 5 times daily…

I WANT TO BE A MODERATE MUSLIM…Music is my pastime…I don’t watch TV shows now…I play with the computer and use the internet…Music is my other thing in life…

Heavy metal music will never relax you…But the talent in metal bands are much greater than those of sentimental bands who sings only romantic songs…

I don’t listen to Maldivian bands like Traphic Jam ( heavy metal of course ) because they portrays a bad image…

hehehehehe…

Who invented coffee?

The original Arab beverage…hehehehe…

From what I know coffee was discovered in Arabia around 600 AD…It was exported to the Europe around the 16 the century…But coffee beans actually grew in Ethopia (whose ancient inhabitants had discovered it’s stimulating and invigorating effects ) and was brought to Arabia…

My favorite drink is coffee ( without sugar for the past year and of course I will avoid sugar for the rest of my days with Allah’s blessings …I am above 30’s and should look after my health now )…

The Italians makes different types of coffee…In fact coffee came to Europe through Italy and the Europeans added milk and sugar to make the taste more acceptable…

Today we can’t live without a dose of caffeine…caffeine is the stimulant that have invigorating effects…COFFEE…Mark one!!!
