<trust level="Full" originUrl=""/>I faced error while setting up the RSS feed in the Dotnetnuke's News Feeds RSS Module. It display following error:

Could Not Connect To [[URL]]. You Should Verify The Source Address Is Valid And That Your Hosting Provider Has Configured Their Proxy Server Settings Correctly.

After researching in various forum, I figured that News Feeds RSS Module requires trust level either HIGH or FULL. It does not works well with medium trust level. So it requires a change in the web.config file as bellow.

<trust level="Medium" originUrl=".*" />
<trust level="High" originUrl=""/>
OR <trust level="Full" originUrl=""/>

I decided not to change this setting and use another module that comes with Dotnetnuke. I used the XML/XSL module to resolve this issue. It gives the same result. Yes I had to copy the XSL file from the News Feeds RSS module folder.

If you planning to edit the XSL then use this article. It has sample XSL file too which you can download and use directly in your application.

It was one of those funny moments. I ask Vedic to pack his bag for a vacation we are planning. He packed bag with his toys and one or two dresses.

Vedic Packing

Vedic, Yash, Yashvi, Adam & Zainab made this Space Shuttle Launch station/center. They were making it like Kennedy Space Center, FL. PS: Adam & Zainab are missing in this photo.


As of now, we are not allowed to use this table anymore until he finish playing with it.

I able to download it from from MSDN & also got the key. What I heard from others is:

It is faster then Vista. Specially the boot time & shutdown time

Look is much like Linux. This was surprising but Microsoft hired many Linux developer in past so it make sense. – Thanks John M for sharing this info.

As Microsoft extended the support for Windows XP, looks like they are trying to release Windows 7 before Windows XP support expires.

Noikia has launched their touch screen phone Nokia 5800 XpressMusic in India. The price of the phone is Rs 21,800 which is less then 8 GB iPhone.

This is an advice to my friends that please avoid using Songs.pk website & any songs downloaded from this website.

This advice is based on following news on the Hindustan times, this site is currently used by hackers to hack data from targeted computers. Also would like to mention that I have been using this site here & there for few years and I personally did not face any issue.

Pak hackers plan attack on Indian cyber networks.
