Solved on LoaderExceptions with Entity Framework

After getting the System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException when I am developing with Entity Framework for few weeks, I google a lot and found out a helpful related blog and now I solved my problems.

After following what he mentioned and showed out the real informations from the exception, I figure out that there is a internal developed dll in my project’s bin directory, but I never reference it into my project. And this dll is running with another dll from a vendor. The problem never comes up for 2 weeks since I remove that internal developed dll from bin directory. I never expected or think about a “non-reference” existing dll will cause out the problem. Anyway, I hope the rest of the developers who are facing the problem, please read the follow blog, try to implement the code in Global.axas. And I hope the detail information could help you find out what is really going wrong in behind. Cheers~~~

Zumobi – Stop Surfing, Start Zooming!

Zumobi, the mobile startup spun off from Microsoft Research, has launched its first beta. The Zumobi lets you access, enjoy, and share web-based content on your mobile phone in an innovative, new way. The Zumobi software presents a unique way to access content, with a grid of sixteen tiles that you can zoom in and out of, and the tiles acting as widgets that display web-based content.
Currently, mobile browsing goes something like this…

    1. Either you navigate through a list of web sites pre-loaded on your phone, navigate through static bookmarks, or maybe even attempt to type in a long URL with your thumbs. Ugh.

    2. Now that you’ve chosen your content, wait while it loads. And wait. And wait.

    3. Ok, site loaded. Read a few lines and scroll down. Scroll down. Scroll down, deeper into the abyss searching for what you wanted buried somewhere in all that content. Tedious. Often frustrating.

    4. Rinse, repeat.

Ultimately, it’s an underwhelming experience.

Enter Zumobi. Beta Launch Video On YouTube

Welcome to Zumobi!

They are also recruiting Beta Users, To participate in the Zumobi Beta you’ll need the following:
Zumobi Tiles create a solution through which advertising and marketing communications are highly contextual and personalized.

  • A U.S.A. mobile phone number
  • A data plan with your mobile phone service provider (we strongly recommend this be an unlimited data plan)

Of course, you are also welcome to download and test Zumobi on other Windows Mobile 5 or 6 phones, but we have not fully certified these phones yet and cannot guarantee an optimal experience.

Overview of Community Credit

        Community Credit was founded by David Silverlight, a Microsoft MVP and an active member of the development community, as a way to reward fellow IT Professionals who have contributed toward the development community. Currently, the rewards for these contributions are simply the satisfaction of helping colleagues in the development community. Now, they can be rewarded by recieving not only geeky gifts like a Swiss Army USB Drives, Caffeinated Hot Sauce or a Binary Wall Clock, but they also recieve a cool plaque to hang on their wall and impress their coworkers.
