phpBB forum Lithuanian translation

Hello all phpBB forum administrators. I want to keep this announcement short, so here is my message.

Because I have a few phpBB forums running for international audience, with every phpBB version release I was struggling to find working phpBB Lithuanian translation. Even official support for LT translation is somehow outdated by several years. I invested some time and created a new, up to date phpBB Lithuanian translation which can be used with latest phpBB version (currently 3.2.2) .

Latest Lithuanian phpBB translation now and in the future can be found on my GitHub account: https://github.com/fATALeRRoR/phpbbLithuanianTranslation

If some people would like to join this project or just contribute, please let me know here in comments or on GitHub, or email, etc.

You are always welcome to join! 🙂

Azure MSDN subscription disabled even not all credits are used up

I did try out Azure payable services using MSDN credits. But after several hours my account was disabled. When I login in Azure portal (old or new, doesn’t matter) I see this information message: “Your subscription has been disabled as it has no credit remaining. Remove spending limit”.

SVG images display in XAML

Last weekend I was looking for possibility to display SVG images in WPF applications. Svg is an vector image format (two dimensional). It means, that you can scale image without any quality loss and image will stay sharp.

One simple way to do that is to convert SVG image to Canvas object. Or you can create custom Canvas by yourself.

Let say I have SVG image source:

XAML code got from SVG to XAML converter:

What you will see in items control (alternating rows enabled):
