Mt Everest Base Camp Solo Trek

Mt Everest Base Camp Solo Trek

I did the solo trek to Mt Everest base camp (EBC) and Kala Pathar in Solukhumbu region of Nepal from 24 April to 10 Th May. Lukla-EBC-Kala Pathar-Phaphlu trek is part of Great Himalaya Trail and it's about 200 KM. I started by doing a warm-up trek of 11 km with my 5 yr old daughter at Indradaha in outskirts of Kathmandu situated at 2000 mtrs. After collecting my TIMS card and permit for Trek I took a thrilling  ride on a turboprop plane from Kathmandu to Lukla airport having just 500 mtrs of airstrip for landing on mountain-side. Started the trek of 6km to Phakding on the same day. On day two, i had to make my way to the well-known Namche Bazaar, one of the biggest rest areas and full of markets, restaurants, and cafes – but reaching this haven at 3,440 metres requires extreme effort. It involved 13 km and six hours of high climbing and steep steps through rhododendron forest, elegant waterfalls, crossing rivers via long, swaying suspension bridges. H…

HTML5 appcache with .net and IIS8.5

It's becoming increasingly important for web-based applications to be accessible offline. Yes, all browsers can cache pages and resources for long periods if told to do so, but the browser can kick individual items out of the cache at any point to make room for other things. HTML5 addresses some of the annoyances of being offline with the ApplicationCache interface.

Using the cache interface gives your application three advantages:

Offline browsing - users can navigate your full site when they're offline
Speed - resources come straight from disk, no trip to the network.
Resilience - if your site goes down for "maintenance" (as in, someone accidentally breaks everything), your users will get the offline experience
