Code Highlighting In Blog

I’ve found a very pretty plugin Crayon Syntax Highlighter written by Aram Kocharyran ( The first impression is very good, it makes the appearance of C# or T-SQL code in blog posts really better. Thanks, Aram!

If you have a blog and install this plugin, you need to change your posts, so the code would be shown correctly (for example, angle brackets, i.e. “greater than” or “less than” mathematical signs). The most important is to change <pre> tags, so they should include class and decode attributes that reflect programming languages. So the tag in default configuration should look like <pre class=”lang:c# decode:true ” > for C# or <pre class=”lang:tsql decode:true ” > for Transact-SQL code.

Windows 8.1 Touchpad Driver for ASUS Notebooks

I’m working on Asus K53sd notebook. After upgrade to Windows 8.1 (mainly to use Hyper-V) I’ve faced some problems with touchpad – I can’t disable it in gracious manner except disabling it totally at driver settings level. I’ve tested all drivers that are listed on product support page. Beside that I could not disable touchpad when I plugg in a mouse.

It took me some time to find the right link. It’s a page devoted to touchpad. And it really works!

I don’t know why they did not include it in product page. Maybe it’s a question for some scientists 😉

Link to Asus touchpad driver

Hope the driver for Windows 10 will be there…

That’s incredible, but Asus had changed the search engine, so the link above does not find anything. But Elantech driver for Windows 8.1 was found on another page

The direct link for version is

I’ve installed it on Windows 10, and yes, Fn + F9 disables notebook touchpad.
