Parser Error Message: Access is denied

Some times while debugging a web application in Visual Studio, I run into error similar to the one below. The error does not go away even when Aspnet_wp.exe process is killed and IIS restarted.

Parser Error Message: Access is denied

It happens that the error message occurs when the Microsoft Index Server (Cisvc.exe) is running on your machine. Cisvc.exe holds a lock on the Temporary ASP.NET Files directory. For a quick fix, kill the Cisvc.exe. For a permanent fix exclude the temporary ASP.NET files directory from being indexed by the index server.
More on the error can be found at MSDN.

Inida face early exit from the world cup

I was a bit down yesterday as India lost against Sri Lanka and are almost out of the world cup. But on putting the defeat in proper perspective, I realised that the Indian team is a bad team and bad teams are supposed to lose. It is immature to get emotional when a bad team loses. Now that India will not be playing any more, I can relax and just enjoy the game of cricket. That is what I'm doing right now. I'm watching South Africa chase Australia's mammoth total of 377 with great ease.
