Outlook and its mapping to Ctrl+F to Forward

Some info on the topic:

Most users want mapping Ctrl+F to Find.

And my question is: Why MS haven't implemented a way of re-mapping (changing) keyboard shortcuts in Microsoft Outlook 2016?
(Other MS Office products have this functionality but Outlook - not.)

May be Outlook is just Oldlook...

Opencart Product Options are not showing in Firefox

Issue in Opencart

Dropdown (select) with Options for products is not available. Writing in the search box does not show any options. Maybe other functionality in administrative is affected.

Solved: MediaWiki sets all date to Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT

All dates (datetimes, timestamps) in your revisions in MediaWiki are shown as:
  • Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT
  • 00:33, 1 January 1970 
  • 31 December 1969
  • or something similar (depends on locale you use)
The issue is that a column in database is defined with shorter limit and date is truncated extremely. Updating your mediawiki will not solve the issue.

Solution: In your SQL db for your wiki look for the table called yourdbprefix_revision in that table find the column rev_timestamp and check its datatype, if it's set to anything less then VarChar(14) change it (to "VarChar(14)") and save the changes. Now when you edit a page the revision will show the correct date.

Special thanks to krikit.

Class.getDeclaredMethod with primitive types (basic types)

Lets have to get method object of this function:
    private void setI(int i) {
        this.i = i;
    }

Sending Integer.class in argument list cause throwing an exception: java.lang.NoSuchMethodException:

The correct way is this:
    Method iMethod = progClass.getDeclaredMethod(
        "setI", new Class[]{ Integer.TYPE } );

Same pattern could be applied for byte, short, long, float, double, boolean, char.
