  • Just a suggestion: in case you don't find here any suitable mentor, Microsoft does have a Student Mentoring program where it pairs the students that request mentoring with MVPs who specialize in the requested area:

    I have been a mentor before and it was a satisfactory experience. However, javascript is not my specialty so I will not be of much help to you. But you could try contacting the MVP mentoring program and they may be able to pair you with someone suitable.

  • hi. okay, having webserver nightmares, cannot contact, 502. and now when i try to ask for one on one help, gives me a runtime error. can anyone help. having server issues. will paste the runtime error below.  Server Error in '/' Application.

    Runtime Error
    Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

    Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".


    <!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

    <configuration>
        <system.web>
            <customErrors mode="Off"/>
        </system.web>
    </configuration>

    Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.


    <!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

    <configuration>
        <system.web>
            <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
        </system.web>
    </configuration>
