I [heart] code! .NET musings from the chick side
I recently upgraded to MonoDevelop 2.2 Beta 2 (for the debugging capability, more on that later) on my Mac. When I opened a Moonlight solution and tried to run it, I got the following error: Could not find respack The project had lost its references to System.Windows and System.Windows.Browser. The cause turned out to be that when you upgrade MonoDevelop, ......

I recently did the upgrade to Snow Leopard on my MBP. To my dismay, Quicksilver no longer worked. It terminated immediately after launch. I found the the Beta 56a7 on here. I also had to remove Plugins.plist and the Plugins folder from ~/Library/Application Support/Quicksilver. I am ecstatic to report that Quicksilver is up and running again, and my ......

The users wanted an AutoComplete Combo box in a SilverLight application- a combo box that would allow them to scroll the entire list, as well as filter the list as the user typed in the box. The problem is: SilverLight has no such control. I did a bit of research and came across various options using templates, styles, etc. Try as I might, I could not ......

I had to send a big object across the wire- An collection containing 31,000 objects each with their own complex object graph (don't ask) and I was really running into problems with WCF crapping out on the call. I did all the obvious stuff to the server web.config... maxBufferSize="2147483647" maxReceivedMessageSize="214... maxItemsInObjectGraph="2147... ......

I had the honor of speaking at CodeStock this year, and it was an awesome experience. The highlights of the weekend include: 1) Getting picked up at the airport by Alan Stevens with his awesome sign. 2) The pre-conference get-together where I met many of my tweeps FINALLY… and they were all as awesome in IRL! 3) Rocking “Thriller” in Alan’s van after ......

Here are some screen shots from VS2010 Beta. The first thing I noticed is that Team Explorer is (finally) installed with the base install. The new look has an Expression-Blendy feel to it… Also, I noticed that it defaults to a single tool bar line at the top. Nice! VS2010 Welcome Screen Home Screen Projects Tab Visual Studio Tab New Project Dialog Box ......

I am fortunate to live on a vast network of trails that start literally in my backyard… there is a trailhead two feet from the end of my driveway. These asphalt trails are plowed in the winter and wind through the backyards and parks, around the lakes, and along the streams of my suburban neighborhood. There are 20+ miles of trails available without ......

The third Iowa Code Camp was another first-class event. Those guys do a fantastic job every time. It is a tradition at Iowa Code Camp to intersperse pictures of cows randomly throughout your slide deck. On my way to the event, I made a quick stop at Greg Wilson’s house. Greg has cows, and had used a marking spray from the vet to write on three of his ......

I will be speaking at Iowa Code Camp this weekend. Greg Wilson, Bryan Sampica, and I are doing a series on WPF data binding. It should be a great time, so come on out!! These guys always put on a first class event. And the after party (the most important part of the weekend) is always awesome. (As for the cows, it’s an Iowa Code Camp thing. You kinda ......

A couple of weeks ago I presented WPF databinding at TCCC6. It was the end of a very hectic couple of weeks. I do not often post personal stuff to this blog, but in this the story is just too crazy. It all started during my family’s annual trip to Mexico. My nephew Drew has Spinal Muscular Atrophy, is wheelchair-bound, and the slightest illness poses ......
