It's official. I've moved out of Geeks With Blogs. I enjoyed being a part of the GWB community, but I thought the commenting system is too buggy at the moment and that's been turning off some of my readers. Anyway, to all you other bloggers out there, keep your spirits high and catch me on my primary blog site at: http://knitinr.blogspot.com ......

BitComet 1.02 is a buggy - it won't download all the files completely although it claims to have downloaded 100% and stops the download process. You can find other reports of the bug here: http://www.tocomet.com/post... You can perform a manual hash check after stopping the torrent (sometimes the stop button does not work - you have to close and ......

In software development, communication is key. Here's a popular email forward describing the reality of software development and the miscommunication prevalent ......

The FCKEditor doesn't seem to be compatible with the RoundedPanelExtender of the AJAX Control Toolkit in MS Internet Explorer. Whenever I place the FCKEditor as a control within a panel that has the RoundedPanelExtender, the FCKEditor is visible for a second or two after page load and then disappears. It works perfectly well on Firefox though. The browser ......

I've tried using FCKEditor 2.6.2 for an ASP.NET web application I was working on and it's really cool. You can check out a demo of the editor here: http://www.fckeditor.net/demo Unlike the version of FCKEditor on GWB (GeeksWithBlogs.com), we don't have a separate popup browser window. A common problem on GWB's FCKEditor is when you're done using the ......

What we need in ASP.NET is a change-tracking control. Whenever we modify elements on a form, it would be a good idea to display a popup for user confirmation before navigating away from the page. Right now, I've got some pretty ugly Javascript doing this. The next version of the AJAX Control Toolkit would really kick a** if it had this control. It could ......

A search comparing the StringCollection to the ArrayList may give you articles that say "the ArrayList works better than the StringCollection" but what you need to know is that a StringCollection is simply extra methods over an ArrayList - there is an actual ArrayList included as a private member within the StringCollection class and it caters to storage ......

If you count the number of pages linking to a Wikipedia page, there may be none but it still appears on the first page of the search results. Google seems to rank pages from Wikipedia higher up in the results. One possibility is that it doesn't seem to be using the regular PageRank algorithm for some websites. Either that or the PageRank algorithm uses ......

I've been running a couple of tests on the ArrayList and the StringCollection in .NET 3.5 to determine if the ArrayList still performs better than the StringCollection for insertions. There are a couple of articles on it, this one from 2004 being the one that also presents source code for a simple test that they've performed: http://weblogs.asp.net/just... ......

Just a little while ago, I was reading about the Infinite Monkey Theorem, as a means of providing input to software tests, on Wikipedia that states: "a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a particular chosen text, such as the complete works of william Shakespeare." The explanation ......
