It’s here. It’s inevitable. It’s called Google Panda, the latest Google’s search algorithm which aims to promote the high quality content site by dooming the rank of low quality content sites. Since its release and updates, many sites have been shown to be terribly affected by the algorithm, but the worst rumor here is, they can do almost nothing to recover the ranking and traffic.

Enable htaccess on Apache

htaccess, also known as hypertext access file available to apache web server and several other known web server software allows us to change configurations on servers per directory or subdirectory in a decentralized manner. that way we could easily change server configurations per user account without the need to change the actual server config itself. this could save time having to call the techs just to redirect one file to another directory. htaccess can be very helpful especially if you do not have any access to the server configurations however, it can cause some serious performance issues too as it is loaded every time a page is requested in the same directory it resides.

Is MFC dead? Does MFC have a future?

1 1 1 1 1 Is MFC dead? Does MFC have a future?5.00Rating 4.97 (236 Votes)

“Is MFC dead?” is arguably the most common question appearing on the VC++ newsgroups along with variants like “Does MFC have a future?” and “Can MFC applications run on Windows 10, 11, etc.?”. A short answer would be, “No, MFC is not dead, and you can continue to develop applications using MFC and be assured that they will run on Windows 10” For a more involved answer, continue reading.

What makes a technology dead? The fact that nobody uses it any more? If so, MFC is not dead now nor will it die in the next 20 years – because, the number of people using MFC must be in the millions right now and even assuming that newer adopters would be fewer as the years go by, the amount of MFC code is so extensive that there will be a large number of developers continuing to work on it. Okay, so that definition of death wouldn’t apply here. How about considering a technology to be dead if its development is frozen? If so, same results – MFC is simply not dead! MFC has got some new additions (mostly classes that allow it to interact easily with Windows Forms) and MFC will continue to be enhanced by third-party developers. Okay, so all this talk of a dead MFC is rubbish! Next point.

Hello, I’m Pat Brenner, a developer on the Visual C++ Libraries team. Through this blog post I wanted to share some information about the Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Library, since I am the primary developer working on MFC.

As you know, MFC is an important technology component which has been extensively used over the years by C++ developers to build desktop applications for Windows. In every product release, we make enhancements to the library, whether it is taking advantage of features in newer versions of the Windows operating system or adding fixes for common developer issues. With the recent release of Visual Studio 11 Beta, there have been some concerns among the MFC developers about the apparent lack of focus on MFC.
