That was a busy week. 10+ hours of flying to get home with a 8 hours time difference.

Now I can finally get to play with the great new toys. Have installed LINQ but having problems. The libraries are there, but VS and the compilers do not seem to have been updated.. Arggg.. Well, time to hit the newsgroups/forums and see if there's a way of fixing without re-building computer :)

In a panel discussion on the BCL (.NET's Base Class Library) Future here at PDC. Pretty interesting. Some interesting tidbits: The manager stated that he has been on the BCL team which started in 1997! BCL 3.0 will have a better side-by-side story. MSCORLIB will load in 3.0 and you will then be able to choose which stack from other BCL versions to use. Therefore your application can use the core MSCORLIB from BCL 3.0 while using other parts of the .NET Framework from versions 1.0/1.1/2.0 etc. Interesting. ...
Another long day, not all good. First the bad, the bus arrangement to go to the party didn't seem to be working that well. Apartently it was made worse by some sort of accident, but there seemed to be a certain lack of co-ordination. The party was fun enough, I got to go on more rides than last time I went to a Universal studios, but there were not enough places to get drinks. The good news, is LINQ, something very impressive. I attended two sessions on it today (both by Anders). This I got to install, ...
The atmosphere was electric, charged by the thumping of rock/rap and dance music. The audience sat with anticipation as they waited for the Keynote to start. The lights dimmed and a hushed silence swepted across the audience, as we where now only seconds away from the entrance of the man himself. Bill Gates entered with a thunderous applause from the awaiting audience, the PDC had now official started. Check out the KeyNote online at PDC 2005 KeyNote Bill gave a quick history lesson, where we were ...
News coming out of the PDC about an exciting new a set of standard query operators for use in working with data regardless of the data source! In essence they are a set of .net libraries that will extend C# and Visual Basic, from the examples on Microsoft site there is a strong impression that this is a sort of SQL type addition to the languages, that still happily works in a OO fashion. For example extracted from the Microsoft website. Where - Simple 1 This sample prints each element of an input ...
Want to understand the magnitude of the Vista platform?Want to watch really cool demos of many Vista technologies?I really, really (did I say really?) recommend watching the keynote from the PDC. It's a 3:30 web cast featuring great information to Windows Vista and Office 12 technologies. You will learn about key technologies as Atlas, InfoCards, WCF, WPF, WPF/E, Peer to Peer and much more.If you have the time, try watch it all, but if you are really short on time I tried to mark a few important ...
Sorry no blogging from the first day here. I was too busy most of the day and too tired when I got back to my room. However, I do have some thoughts. First thought, LINQ. Language Integrated Natural Query (I think that’s what it stands for) is cool. You’ll be able to integrate your queries directly into your code. Hmmm…but will our SP guys like that? Perhaps you’ll be able to use the queries on resultsets from SP’s? I’ll have to find out ...
Highlights Vista gets more of it's bits! Vista now has more 3D experience + the sidebar is back WPF & WCF now looking mature - Microoft Max is a great GUI experience - www.Microsoft.com/MAX LINQ - see here http://www.microsoft.com/pr... Office 12 looks stunning plus has real features - check out storin Power Points slide by slide on WSS then composing a new presentation from those slides - also if the 'master' is changed so is the developed presentation. ...
In this open letter from an auto theft investigator from Charlotte Meck, Police he explains some of the implications of auto theft. He states that most of the time, the crime is committed by inexperienced juveniles. Auto theft is often a “stepping stone” to other crimes. Successfully stealing a car emboldens delinquents to other crimes. Having a car stolen is not something that anyone would look forward to. As the open letter points out, even if you get your car back, it may not be the ...
I've seen some really bad SQL in my day. Hell, I've even written some in my earlier days. But I've NEVER seen anything like this. Over on the Daily WTF there are plenty of examples of bad code. Most of them just make you shake your head and say What the F**k? I've never been moved to share them with others but this one just crys out for it. The person submitting this particular WTF relates that they are not licenced to modify the source (it's in SQL) or the ASP code and asks for suggestions. I would ...
