A quick guide on how to populated “Description No documentation available.” in Microsoft Web Api Help Pages

Microsoft’s Web Api Help Pages is a nice surprise when it comes to something as tedious as documentation. Unfortunately it requires a small configuration to get the most out of it. This guide is a rapido guide for getting the “Description No documentation available”.

Its starting to bore me with post saying the PS3 has much more life in it.

Modern phones are more powerful than the PS3.
