More QT4 (Assignment 3 Question 1)
So, the last few days I have been finishing my summaries of my Programming Contemporary Concepts course. While it has been interesting being exposed to a new programming language, I found the actual course a bit framework specific, and not to contemporary at all. Needless to say, in the quest for the qualification I am going to put this aside and slog along. Question 1 of Assignment 3 asks us to write a template Queue<T> class and client code to test it. I will be attempting it in QT4 using ......

6’ Code GIT Challenge – GET GIT
It has been some time since I have had an hour or so to do a decent blog post, and finally today I sat down and decided I would just have to make the time. I am itching for some F# programming, but decided to first attempt the 6 Degree’s of Code Challenge that was extended by Garren at the last user group meeting. In essence while Garren never mentioned it specifically, he gave us Euler Problem 3. Since I have already solved the problem in F#, I thought it would be a good idea to do the same thing ......

Ordered my .Net RFID Reader

 

Today I finally succumbed to temptation and ordered my Trossen Robotics RFID reader starter kit. I am looking forward to playing around with the device, a few ideas already came to mind, but we shall see just how easy it is to use.

Hopefully I can not get to distracted by it and study properly for my up coming exams, but it is also fun to spoil oneself once in a while and have a bit of fun!

Localising WPF & Silverlight Applications
A while back I looked into localising a WPF application. Because I prefer the MVVM application I wanted something that I could apply to the UI layer specifically in XAML. At the time I found a post on Codeplex that allowed me to achieve this, but when we moved from VS2008 to VS2010 it broke the whole system. I am glad to see that an update to this tool is now available here <Update> After speaking to my friend Brendon he pointed me to another post about the same topic… http://compositeextensions.... ......

Crack .Net Applications 101 – Part 2
In part 1 of Crack .Net Applications I demonstrated how easy it was to reverse engineer an an unprotected .Net application. In this post my aim is to highlight a few techniques that one can employ to protect ones code from this type of hacking. So, my take on software protection is that one can never be 100% protected – given infinite time you can guarantee someone with enough intelligence will be able to bypass all security measures that you ever implement – that being said, we don’t have infinite ......
