No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress

This error is a bug in Microsoft Visual Studio which occurs very often when “Find in files” utility is used to find some token in a file or directory which has been specified in the Look in list of the Find in files dialog box.

Visual Studio will just dump this message: “No files were found to look in. Find was stopped”, and will not even try searching in the files.

To correct this error :

1. Either, Get your Visual Studio in focus and press any of the key combination :
  1. CTRL + BREAK
  2. CTRL + SCROLL LOCK
  3. ALT + BREAK
Note : Not sure what does this key combination does but it works.

2. Or, Delete this Registry key from Windows Registry using Regedit utility :
MyComputer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\Find
and restart your Visual Studio.

Exploring Node.js Internals

I found a great article explaining Node JS internals, must read : https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2020/04/nodejs-internals/ Some other articles : Introduction to Node.js Being an official website, Node.dev explains what Node.js is, as well as its package managers, and lists web frameworks built on top of it. “ JavaScript & Node.js ”,  The Node Beginner Book This book by  Manuel Kiessling  does a fantastic job of explaining Node.js, after warning that JavaScript in the browser is not the same as the one in Node.js, even though both are written in the same language. Beginning Node.js This beginner book goes beyond an explanation of the runtime. It teaches about packages and streams and creating a web server with the Express framework. LibUV This is the official documentation of the supporting C++ code of the Node.js runtime. V8 This is the official documentation of the JavaScript engine that makes it possible to write Node.js with JavaScript.

Tum mujhko karna maaf priye – Poem By Dr. Kumar Vishwas

Lyrics : O kalp-vraksh ki son-juhi, O amal-tas ki amar kali Dharti ke aatap se jalte, Man par chaayi nirmal badli Main tumko madhu-sad-gandh yukt, sansaar nahi de paunga ! Tum mujhko karna maaf priye main pyar nahi de paunga !! Tum kalp-vraksh ka fool aur Main dharti ka adna gayak Tum jeewan ke upbhog yogya Main nahi adhuri gazal shubhey Tum saam-gaan si pawan ho Himshikharon par sehsa kaundha Bijuri si tum man bhawan ho Isliye vyarth shabdo wala, vyapar nahi de paunga ! Tum mujhko karna maaf priye main pyar nahi de paunga !! Tum jis shaiya par shayan karo, Veh sheer sindh si pawan ho Jis aangan ki ho maul-shree Veh aangan kya vrandawan ho Jin adhron ka chumban pao Veh adhar nahin ganga tat ho Jiski chaya ban saath raho Veh vyakti nahin vanshi-vat ho Par main vat jaisa saghan chaaon ,vistaar nahin de paunga ! Tum mujhko karna maaf main pyar nahi de paunga !! Main tumko chand sitaron ka Saupun uphar bhala kaise Main yayavar banjara sadhu sur-sansar bhala kaise Main jeewan
