Wiki is in Ward's original description:

The simplest online database that could possibly work.

Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. Wiki supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between internal pages on the fly.

Wiki is unusual among group communication mechanisms in that it allows the organization of contributions to be edited in addition to the content itself.

Like many simple concepts, "open editing" has some profound and subtle effects on Wiki usage. Allowing everyday users to create and edit any page in a Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic use of the Web and promotes content composition by nontechnical users.


Virtual Tours

by Administrator 28. July 2009 09:31

5 virtual 360 Images and 6 still images. Reach out more prospects while reducing the "lookers" on your house. Many buyers do not want to waste their time to go to a house and find out that it is not what they are looking for. Homes with Virtual Tours are usually viewed virst by buyers searching on the Internet.

Pictures are helpfull but providing your potential buyers the chance to tour your house virtually in 360 degrees definitely has the advantage. Reach out for Buyers that are outside of Maryland. Definitely a great tool when doing Flat Fee MLS.

' Module:   WebServiceInvocation.vb
' Purpose:  This module contains code to assist in calling web services
'           that use Windows authentication, the NCES SDK, etc.
' Notes:
' Modification History:
' 07/14/2005, Jonathan Cochran
'    1) Original coding.
' 04/27/2006, Jonathan Cochran
'    1) Renamed the main procedure to ConfigureProxy.
'    2) Made all parameters to ConfigureProxy mandatory.  If they are all
'       always passed in, it will be easier to switch from one implementation
'       to another.
' 07/10/2006, Jonathan Cochran
'    1) Added a configuration option to specify the security protocol a
'       web service is called over (TLS, SSL, or none).

Module WebServiceInvocation

    ' Procedure:  ConfigureProxy
    ' Purpose:    This procedure will configure a web service proxy so the web
    '             service can be accessed when it is protected.
    ' Parameters: vstrServiceQName      - The QName of the web service to call.
    '                                     This is used to uniquely identify a
    '                                     web service.
    '             robjWebServiceProxy   - The web service proxy to configure.
    '             vobjClientCertificate - The client certificate object.
    '             robjSession           - The user's session object.
    ' Returns:    Nothing
    ' Notes:
    '    1) This procedure should be called immediately before a web service
    '       is called.  This is because:
    '       a) The NCES SDK global object (ToolkitSecurityContext) has a single
    '          configuration for all web services, rather than individual
    '          configurations for each web service.  Since different web
    '          services may have different needs, this procedure will need to
    '          be called before each web service call to make sure the
    '          ToolkitSecurityContext object is configured properly for the
    '          service being called.
    '       b) NCES Discovery may need to be called to find the current
    '          location of the web service.
    '       c) Currently the NCES SDK global object (ToolkitSecurityContext) is
    '          shared among all users to the web application.  Therefore, the
    '          end-user assertion needs to be set in the global object as close
    '          as possible to the web service call to try to avoid using
    '          another user's end-user assertion.
    '    2) A web service QName is:
    '       web service namespace + "#" + web service name
