Jasper Tour [ Columbia Icefield Glacier Adventure]

Recently I was in a tour around Jasper National Park with my friends. On our way to Jasper we have visited Columbia Icefield Glacier centre. It was an unique experience in my life. Here I like to share my feelings with you guys !!.

The ice field centre operates from May 1 to October 15.

Checklist:
Ticket: $50/Adult.
Jacket
Winter boot.
Camera.

Bus departs every 15 minutes from Icefield Centre. Regular Brewster bus will take you to Brewster Ice Explorers bus station in about 10 min.



Massive Brewster Ice Explorers, specially designed for glacial travel, will take you on a remarkable excursion onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier. BTW, Ice Explorers bus travel at maximum speed of 12 miles/ hour :P.


While traveling on the ICE Explorer the sharp way down on icy roads might scare some of you :). You will enjoy a unique prehistoric landscape on your way towards the glacier.


Journey is about 80 minute and lead by an experienced driver-guide. It will take you very close to the glacier. You can get off the bus, stand on this powerful ancient ice and experience the remarkable beauty of the glacier.



Don't forget to take photos :).




I particularly like this pose :D.




Souvenir:
You can buy souvenir from Icefield Centre souvenir shop. I bought this one for $4.

Creating dynamic email templates using C# and Office Outlook

It is quite common for many applications to send automated email notifications. Couple of months ago, I have worked on improving our old email template format to make it more user friendly . In this tutorial I will walk you though regarding how I took advantage of Microsoft Outlook to quickly generate custom email template and later using the html template for building an automated custom email application using C#. Steps: Creating Templates: Using the rich text editor support  in Outlook create a nicely formatted email. Use placeholder text for the values you like to change dynamically based on your task completion status. To keep this tutorial simple, I have created a  simple table with placeholder text inside the third bracket  [place holder text]. However, you can use anything supported by outlook editor. Figure: Email Template Getting HTML code: Send the created email to your own address. After that, open the sent email and right click to view source . It

Persian Music - Homayoon - Nemitonam English lyrics

I love this song. I have requested one of my Persian friend to translate it for me and she did really nice job.. I am sure you will love it.. " "The person who was the only person I had, was the only refuge of my lonely heart, Left me alone and went from my side I am restless form the pain of her separation … I thought she stays with me sings love song for me I thought she understand my words I didn’t know she’s unkind … Though gone, but still I am full of her love Her thought is always with me Wherever I go, she is in front of my eyes, in front of my eyes I want to stand out find a way to reduce my pain of her separation But it is not possible, There is no way I cannot bear I cannot bear The person who was the only person I had, was the only refuge of my lonely heart, Left me alone and went from my side I am restless form the pain of her separation … I thought she stays with me sings love song for me I thought she understand my words I didn’t know she’s u

Code Review - Best Practices

Code review is a great learning and knowledge sharing tool not only for the new members of the team but for the long time company veterans as well. Having a code review process in place dramatically improves the code quality and helps detect bugs in an early stage. Much of what I wanted to write here has already been captured in this great post form smartbear. However, here are the important bits:   Author: Size matters. Keep it under 400 lines. For bigger change, break down the review in meaningful chunks. Add TODO comments for future CR. Keep you changes under feature flag or in a separate feature branch to facilitate smaller incremental changes which are not ready to be released in production. Provide a detailed context of the change. I prefer documenting context in commit message and will recommend to follow similar format from Linux project [ link ] Provide details of tests performed to verify the current change. Unit tests, integration tests, verific
