Completed the implementation of clients "Contact Form" translation given to me, to Spanish and German Languague

Last week on Thursday I naively assumed in a client meeting that, a single page translation of a "Contact Form" to Spanish and German, will not be a big deal and I promised a deadline of next Friday, only to realize now that I should have evaluate the entire contact form and the requirements more.

What I didn't pictured into the quote and the time it will take to finish the job was, that the bottlenecks that I will face could resulted into more research and required more time, but thankfully the geekhood (a.k.a brotherhood) of programmer's who share and post there questions and solutions on forums and blogs, gave me enough bits and pieces to resolve the issues again and again until I was able to deliver on my promise of implementing the translations given to me by the client.

The wrong assumption happened when I was told, here is the English text and here are two Microsoft word files having translation of each text in Spanish and German and all I have to do is display the text based on users choice of language. It was simple or suppose to be :(

Any way life is a... hmmm lets just keep it clean :)

I feel good that I was able to accomplish the requirements as they were implemented for the first time by me. Hopefully in the future I will give myself more time to review/think on the task's that I will be quoting the time for the first-time.

The solution was implemented as independent Asp.Net page within the CMS solution of DotNetNuke without changing any of the web.config or globalization file settings.

Completed UiPath - RPA Developer Advance Training

After a month of training, with late nights and weekends I have completed the UiPath RPA Developer Advance Training. The Level 1 Foundation Training pretty much covered all the basics of Desktop studio and workflows, only draw back was I started with the default foundation course which was for 2016, and all document reference links where pointing to 2016 version. I didn't understand it during the foundation training and kept switching to 2018 version document/page. Only after completing the Foundation course that I realized, I was suppose to have started with the 2018 version of Level 1 Foundation Training, but as it was optional I didn't have to retake the 2018 version, the 2016 was good enough for moving to level 2. The Level 2 Orchestrator 2018.3 Training as good. It gave good understanding of Queue's, Jobs, and schedules and I was able to complete the level two much faster then the level 1. The Level 3 UiPath Advanced Training was bit tough as it involved the a

KB 294807 - IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe

Resolved issue today of IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe by deleting "Windows Temp" folder files. We used Cygwin to customize some permissions of "Windows Temp" folder and after few hours the website stopped working. The search online was giving all kinds of different solution except what I was looking for. I was hoping the stackoverflow will have answers but even this post didn't cover the issue I was running into. Restarting the IIS didn't work, but deleting temp files cleared the issue, but now the problem is how long before the site will go down again? Hope the issue is resolved for ever, if not; I will update this post later.
