Alternatively, you can access the Kinetic shape itself to add the shadow later using the standard Canvas attributes


In Topic: Linqpad With Firebird?

14 October 2013 - 01:58 AM

Hi Gabriel

The simple answer is no: it takes more then FbConnection, FbCommand, etc. You need code that takes a LINQ query and transforms it into SQL that's valid for Firebird.

If you really want to query Firebird in LINQ (and don't mind investing some time into writing a driver), the simplest option right now is to write a driver for <a href="" target="_blank">Matt Warren's IQueryable toolkit</a>. Once you've got this working, you can write a LINQPad plug-in (I can help you with that).

The other option is to wait for someone else to do it, although it take a while (or forever) given that Firebird isn't terribly popular.


Some test could also run, but the .NET driver returns "invalid data type".

In Topic: Sending Email From Ec2

14 October 2013 - 01:43 AM

Sending email reliably involves ensuring that messages are delivered without being rejected or blacklisted by spam filters, MTAs or MDAs. In order to send email reliably from EC2, there are several stategies that are available, including:

Amazon SES service:
An authenticated SMTP mail service:
Host your own SMTP server with an Elastic IP associated (such as Postfix or Sendmail)

Email and Elastic IPs

When developing an email policy with your deployments, note that Elastic IPs are considered dynamic and not static in the global registry. This can create a challenge, as some destinations MTAs (Mail Transfer Agents) carry out a reverse DNS lookup on the SMTP client to verify the source of a receiving email. When a reverse DNS lookup is performed, emails that do not match the sender's domain can be dropped.Although this is technically outside mail RFCs and SPF should be utilized instead, it remains a common practice for mail administrators.

To stop destination mail (SMTP) servers from blocking email that originates from EC2 instances, you can map a DNS PTR record (reverse DNS) against the Elastic IP used with your SMTP server (for example, AWS released this support In March 2010.

Note: To apply for RDNS to be configured for your EIP, complete Amazon's Request to Remove Email Sending Limitations form.
