This morning my HR colleague emailed me to fix some typo errors in our company website. Not a big deal, since the detail of the changes are included in the email.

As I make the corrections, I noticed some sentences which I wasn’t comfortable:

  1. RichLand now employs more than 900 staff throughout the Asia Pacific region
  2. RichLand Logistics is a leading logistics solutions provider serving clients across the Asia Pacific region

I felt that the usage of article “the” before Asia Pacific is rather weird. I thought if I remove the article the, it will sounds better. So I decided to go ahead with the removal. I then emailed her back informing that the changes is live, and told her about the extra changes. After clicking the Send button, I become slightly worried. What if my removal of article the was wrong. Thus, I googled it.

Taken from the first search result:

The definite article is used before singular and plural nouns when the noun is specific or particular. The signals that the noun is definite, that it refers to a particular member of a group. For example:

The dog that bit me ran away.” Here, we’re talking about a specific dog, the dog that bit me.

“I was happy to see the policeman who saved my cat!” Here, we’re talking about a particular policeman. Even if we don’t know the policeman’s name, it’s still a particular policeman because it is the one who saved the cat.

“I saw the elephant at the zoo.” Here, we’re talking about a specific noun. Probably there is only one elephant at the zoo.

After finished reading the linked page above, I am no longer worried. It turns out my hunch was right, we shouldn’t use article the before the name of a region/continents. So, yay for me? :D

Today I inadvertently stumbled into this weird problem. My Visual Studio 2012 couldn’t add new Data Source using EF 6.1.1. After spent my whole morning still unable to get it to work. I resorted to switching back to EF 6.0.0, which works. Anyway, I’ll just put the steps here for those who might be able to solve this mystery.

First, let’s look into my Visual Studio version:

Next, I’ll create a Windows Form project.

Next, I installed EF 6.1.1 through NuGet

Then, I try to add Entity Framework data source in the following steps:




I clicked New Connection button then …BAMM… Exception!

Hoping for clues, I looked into Event Viewer, but I found nothing. I even restarted Visual Studio with logging turned on, but no error logs generated.

UPDATE: I’ve reported this problem in EF’s Codeplex.
