Some good news

Two large retailers have launched important employment programs (Altex and Lidl) and they both announce better than average wages. I think this is good news, people have money and they want to spend them, and retailers have noticed it.

Brexit stupid consequence

UK was the only country that notified UE that its official language is English. Now, if they quit UE, there’s no ‘political correct’ reason for UE to maintain English as an official language and there are people raising this issue.

How to copy a WPF control default template

From MSDN forums user Magnus (MM8) (

Right-click on an element, for example a Calendar, in design mode in Visual Studio 2012 or later and select the “Edit template” option and then the “Edit a copy…” option. This will bring up a dialog that lets you specify the name and location of a style resource that is created for you when you click the “OK” button in the dialog.

There is also an “Edit Additional Templates” option and under this one you will find an “Edit CalendarDayButtonStyle” option that will copy the default template of the CalendarDayButton into your XAML markup.
