Wow. The response to “Meet the Technologist” sessions has been great. So great that we needed to create some new breakout sessions. Luckily we have a few rooms to move them into, and great speakers who have helped out. These changes will be highlighted at the San Diego Convention Center on the housekeeping monitors and on a “changes“ page on CommNet. Until then, new sessions include: DATC01 Microsoft Business Intelligence for the Relational Expert Mon. May 24, 10:45AM Room ...
Today Robert linked me to two posts ( You are right Robert, you are a connecter, most of my visits to your blog to connect me to someone interesting), one was Lenn Pryor and through Lenn was Heather's Blog. Putting your blog details on your resume is still a new question and a interesting one, you will get different answers as you ask different people and this will again depend on how well they understand blogging and what their opinions are on blogging. I would say, put a link to your blog if you ...
I need to keep a reference to this. This proved to be a space hog on my old laptop (taking 5.5G of an old 7G drive). The C:\Windows\CSC directory is where Windows keeps the document files that you have marked for being available offline. CSC was the working name for the feature now called Offline Files. It stands for Client-Side Caching. Details on removing/controlling CSC are here ...

Ok, I really, really want to thank John Lam and Keith Pleas for reccommending X1to me.  It is the most kickass utility I have ever seen.  I've only been using it for 2 days and it's already saving me time left and right.  You absolutely must check this thing out!

Ralf has put up a couple of posts here and here regarding app architecture that everyone should read. His ideas are very similiar to the ideas that we have been implementing ourselves (are you reading this Donnie). One point that I don't particularly agree with is the we should have been using COM+ more. I feel that COM+ is a useful benefit in a relatively small percentage of systems. When you need it you'll know, but it would never be the first thing I look at for a system design. I also believe ...
When we say that in ASP.NET 2.0, we are actually reducing the amount of code the developer writes, we sure do mean it. And what could be a better example than the good, old DataGrid control. Rechristened as the GridView, all you are expected to do now is: Drag and drop the control in design view Courtesy the smart tags, add a data source (existing or new; and there are tons of varieties of the same) Check few checkboxes to tell if you need support for paging, row-selection, editing, deletion And ...
Roy Osherove had a comment asking when we might see more XP related content from Microsoft? My answer to that would be hopefully never. In his post, Roy ponders how the XP process would work on projects as large and vast as what Microsoft produces. Is he really serious? Can something like Word be developed using XP? I can't possibly see how. The other question he asks is will we see Microsoft showing us how to do XP in Enterprise level applications. Microsoft has not been able to properly show us ...

It's been a long wait, but Novell are getting closer to releasing their .NET Framework implementation for Linux. This is, of course, the Mono open-source project which was acquired by Novell when it bought Ximian a few months ago. Beta 1 was released on Monday, and contains an ASP.NET implementation, amongst other things. Windows.Forms will not be part of the release, but there is an early version available, together with an early version of a C# 2.0 compiler. All excellent stuff. Good to see this ...
Steve (author of the wildly popular ASP.NET Unleashed) has got his new training site up and running!  http://www.superexperttraining.com

It's quite a while now and I have'nt still received my MSDN Connection Welcome Kit, I was and am so excited about it, but why is the kit not coming, I am sure it's more than 5 weeks now? Is there anybody out there who has recived the kits? Frank Arrigo would you know what's the plan for May for this program?

DataGrid, ViewState and SelectedIndex The ViewState of an ASP.NET page is a hidden field that the ASP.NET framework uses to maintain the state of a web page. When a user posts a page to the server, the server will restore the contents of the controls by parsing out the state and restoring the state in the Base64 encoded field. If you've worked with the DataGrid you know it has a tendency to increase the contents of the ViewState field by quite a bit - sometimes in excess of 100KB! To combat this, ...
Well the book club isn't going off as planned, but I will keep trying. This idea is definitely hard to complete, because it is asking a lot out of the members. Even though reading books is part of our profession, it is hard to get developers to read. It is too much of a chore for most of us. How can we change that? What would make a group like this better? I hear a lot of people complaining about time. I have no time, blah blah blah. I don't know how many people I have seen from the lab portion of ...
My fellow INETA Academic Committee member Andrew Flick put his thoughts in writing about the Imagine Cup regional competitions held on March 17th at 4 locations in the USA. The 8 winners from the regionals compete at Tech-Ed for the USA Finals, with 1 winner representing the Stars and Stripes at the World Finals in Brazil in July. Andrew has some gripes (mostly gripes) about the way the regional competitions were run. I tend to agree with him on most of his points. Here are my thoughts about the ...
Hidi-Ho! This is my first post to my Web Blog and I would like to discuss my ongoing experience with .NET development - specifically ASP.NET using C#. I would like to put out topics or coding practices out to the .NET Geeks of the world to comment on or to critique or to flame. A little about me My name is Allen Guest and I'm a displaced Canadian living in the Seattle area. I came down here during the .com bubble and have thankfully been busy despite the .com bomb and the economic downturn. Perhaps ...
Just read more info about OneNote Sp1 Preview on Microsoft Website after reading it on Chris Pratley's blog, just don't have the CD with me now, so will get it and install the Sp1 preview on my system. For me the main features for which I am diving are as follows:- Import pictures into OneNote. Illustrate notes and ideas visually by adding photos taken with a digital camera or webcam. Better Integrate with Other Office Programs • Insert documents from other Office programs into OneNote. Insert ...
Pornolize is a nice site to 'porn sites day and night'one can enter the url and can enjoy the porn pages day and night :). I had few laughs as well today. Firstly I pornolize my own blog and my heading says “IT Digest - Ingenious "Mount" Raids's Digest "Sniff-my-Ass" Blog “ now is'nt that funny. Kent Tegel linked me to this site, thanks Kent for the laughs that I had today.I took the chance and pornolize Kent's blog too.I have linked to Frank Arrigo on my blog and it reads as “Frank ...
Here is good discussion on Static and abstract, Max has given this example in Ericqu comments section on static class blog. @Talbott abstract does _not require_ inheritance for a full implementation: abstract class Foo { static void DoSomething(){} } ... Foo.DoSomething(); is totally legal code. 'abstract' only means no instance can be created - at least at the view of the Compiler/Runtime. But I have to agree that most people think 'abstract' means an incomplete class. So it may be less confusing ...
Picked this meme up from here. "And I must say immediately what a great honor and a great privilege I think it must be for you, the people of Cottington, to have this gleaming new motorway going through your cruddy little village ... I'm sorry, your little country village of cruddy Cottington." - From the fifth sentence on page 23 of Douglas Adams' The Original Hitchhiker Radio Scripts. Here's what the meme suggests you do: Grab the nearest book.Open the book to page 23.Find the fifth sentence.Post ...
I am heading to Connections this weekend and will get to see many of my favorite people there! Alex Homer, Rob Howard, Paul Litwin, Doug Seven, Steve Smith, Craig Utley, Stephen Walther, Bill Evjen, Robert Green, Scott Guthrie. With that kind of all-star cast, it has to be a great show! Plus, 80+ degrees cannot be a bad thing ...
OK, I still have'nt caught up with Technical Careers @ Microsoft blog, but I just read a nice entry on it about a question that is frequently asking in job interviews and quite a few other places,”what do you think are your strength and weaknesses ?”. I think this is a very important question, not just from a job or interview point of view but also on a personal level. Knowing your own strenght and weaknesses not only helps you to make yourself a better person but also than you know where ...

Suresh Behera explica en su blog una forma de ejecutar una aplicacion sin el framework.

Sera question de probarlo no? Con esto i el articulo sobre como montar un servidor web en un cd se podria montar una aplicacion web montada en un cd.

From Kent Sharkey's mention in his blog I saw a link to Fiddler. This is a nice 1.1 program that every developer should own!
Two words 'not much'... at least not remotely as much as I would like, lazing most the past week in thoughts I have no control over or watching TV and chatting aimlessly on MSN (something I rarely do). But I still managed to do a few things geeky :). Introducing GMail Free email with 1000 MB of email space from Google.com! It's relatively not a new thing for geeks with there own POP accounts or people using Outlook Express or other popular mail readers but for end users stuck up with Hotmail, CoolMail ...

If any of you are interested in .NET game development, or Terrarium, or just game development in general, I *highly* recommend that you subscribe yourself to Justin Rogers' blog if you haven't already. Keep up the great work Justin!
We all know Jeff is amazing, but he got this site up and running in something like 3 days with content from some of us in the publishing world and everything. The .NET Book Club promises to be a great place for discussion of various books and even a place to catch a cool preview of new books. I gave Jeff a couple of raw format chapters from Alex Homer's upcoming ASP.NET 1.1 Insider Solutions. They are up there and Alex is also a member of the book club and I am sure would love to here your feedback. ...
Sign up now at dotnetbookclub.org and you can preview chapters from Alex Homer's book ASP.NET 1.1 Insider Solutions, due out in June, in its raw format. There are discussions attached to each chapter for you to give your feedback of the work. Thanks to Amy and SAMS publishing for providing the content. One of the issues I have heard from people and the idea of having a "Book Club" is the lack of time to actually read the books, or the lack of interest in the books themselves. Well the "Book of the ...

Update 1: I have posted a new version of the code given below. The comments in this post still apply, but the code has been revised and expanded. Update 2: A C# version of this base exception class is posted here. Now it is time to get serious with some code. This is the first element of my exception handling --- the custom base exception class. Here is an updated list of blog entries which address exceptions to standard design. I will refer to some of these further on below. Brad Abrams, Exceptions ...

I would have expected this to happen sooner, but atlast it has happened. heres the scoop at netcraft.com

Aburrimiento.. esa es la palabra. Es lo q pasa quando tienes q instalar un servidor. Concretamente actualizar un w2k a w2k3(¿?). mientras se hace la copia de seguridad aprovecho para escribir chorradas por aqui. Voy a escribir algo acerca de mi, por si hay alguien leyendolo y le interesa saber a quien debe maldecir por haberle echo perder 5 minutos de su vida con esta chachara incomprensible.

You heard me, my friends. I am now completely contaminated. I'm more tainted than a bovine with mad-cow disease. 'Nix that. I'm more tainted than a syphilitic prostituting leper. 'Nix that. I'm more tainted than a syphilitic, prostituting, leprous walking hamburger patty. That's right, THAT tainted. (Dear John Doe, if you are offended by my use of the phrase “syphilitic, prostituting, leprous walking hamburger patty” then I apologize dearly. Obviously, no offense was meant by it. If you ...
Hi Guy ( I am not talking to any Guy, I am talking to the Guy on http://weblogs.asp.net ), welcome to the blog world. Guy wants to know what he can and cannot share on the blogs, I read his post and following are my opinion:- If you find something on the Internet and you want to share it on the blog, than you should , becuase in my opinion that is not a trade secret or source code of your product, you found something and you pointed it Well may be your company payed for some of the skills that you ...
Personally I think that this is a good news and shuts of some people who allways complain that Microsoft does not share their source code. Based on what I read in the article , Microsoft shares their source code with quite a few categories like Academia, Corporations, Businesses creating softwares based on Microsoft products, MVP's (Microsoft Valued Professional, my friends Anand and Tameen are MVP's), government and individuals. via Frank Arrigo.

Chris Pratley has done it again, an excellent post by him. He talks of stages through which the Program Manager goes in a Company, although I am not a Program Manager anywhere, I can visualise and see that it would be as the same as mentioned in the post. He definately has some really nice experiences at Microsoft, Chris do you want to share some more please...

Stephen Walther was named a Software Legend by Microsoft today in recognition of his contribution to the Microsoft developer community as an author, trainer and developer. Microsoft selected Walther to join the Legends because of his best selling title, ASP.NET Unleashed, which many developers cite as one of the most comprehensive and accessible resources on ASP.NET available. With this honor, Walther joins an impressive class of other Software Legends, including Billy Hollis, Jeffrey Richter, David ...
Raymond Cheng links to me to Toyota Prius, I have seen the Ad. we see on the local TV but never understood it properly and then I heard about Prius when the local government in Melbourne bought too many Prius for the department, but Raymond's blog took me to the site where I could find some more info, looks interesting to me, some of the features are a too good for me. Looks good to me. ...

As a VB'er, I am SO happy that the name of Visual Basic (of which I am an MVP for) has changed from Visual Basic .NET to Visual Basic 8.0. This info comes according to Robert Green's Visual Basic Blog and Panopticon Central. I have posted about this in the past here and here. For me, as a writer, it was ALWAYS very annoying to write “Visual Basic .NET” over and over again. Then ... was it “VB .NET” or “VB.NET” ... geez. I am going to love writing “Visual ...
I was on Robert's blog today when I saw he has linked to a entry written by Jason Mauss, I was thinking on these issue a while back ( since I entered the blog world) and could not really see a point where I would be happy to pay for expensive magazines where mostly the only new content I was going to find would be their advertisements and other crap not worth my money. I used to buy few selected magazines for their technical content which was not easily availble on the websites, reviews and articles ...
Well, I think that the death of my new Bloggie Award has come. When I started the thing, I didn't realize that there was already an official “Bloggie Awards”. This got me thinking though. Scoble has talked in the past about the whole “signal vs. noise“ argument. However, what is it that causes the bit-flip from noise to signal to be flipped? How can a blogger stand out from the crowd? Find a unique hook One might think that the large rotundness that I have might help me stand ...
I thought I would do my part in helping spread this information around the Blogosphere. Carl and Rory are now doing a series of Training Videos. Their first video is a VB.NET Master Class teaching the concepts of object-oriented programming. If you know of anyone who might need this information, send them on forward to Carl and Rory. Keep them coming guys ...
Just noticed that my book Developing Web Applications with Visual Basic.NET and ASP.NET is ranked at 148 on Amazon. That’s pretty cool considering it was released two years ago this month. The book was written to assist VB6 devs make the transition to ASP.NET and does a pretty good job, according to those who have read it and reported back... I wrote it with Billy Hollis, (a software legend, all around .NET master, and a good friend) who always hits it out of the park when he steps up to bat! ...
I got 15 free passes to the security symposium and I am holding a quiz for my INETA based user group in Karachi, The initial response has been over whelming. I am currently thinking of some tricky questions that I will mail to all people on the DNUG mailing list by Monday, and the first 10 participants with all questions right will win a place to the Microsoft Security Symposium being held at Marriott, Karachi on Wednesday the 17th. More information about the event is available here. I also mentioned ...
