Running additional instances of Skype

Starting from Skype 4, we can run multiple instances of Skype. To do that, just pass /secondary argument to the skype.exe, just like this:


It will then run the 2nd instance of Skype and so on.

If you don’t like using command line tool you can make a shortcut for  it as explained in this blog post:

[Solved] PC starts but no signal to monitor

I hope this post can help someone having the same issue as I faced.


  • Motherboard green light on when power cable plugged in
  • On start up:
    – No signal to monitor
    – Can’t enter BIOS POST check
    – Fans are spinning as normal (including CPU cooler fan)

Fix Solution

Check your power supply. In my case a replacement of power supply fixed the issue.

From BlogEngine.NET to WordPress

Well… I would welcome myself to this blog…

After a full night of struggling with hosting migration, now everything is back to normal except the blog.

Yeah, I’m now using WordPress. Oops I said the blog is not normal, it’s not because of WordPress though, instead all of my posts from Sept 2009 will not be migrated to this website. Many things considered, not only because of the posts are no longer “hot” but also I just want to start from fresh.

I choose WordPress because I think this is the best blog engine on earth. I must admit it, even though I’m .NET developer.

Don’t ask about the roadmap of this blog… this will of course all about .NET things 🙂

Stay tune for the interesting (and useful – I hope) posts!

PS: If any of you need the old posts, please let me know.

PPS: I just recovered some old posts which I found helpful for anyone (realized it after reading MSDN forums).
