<metaBlogging> This post isn’t about code, but I’m rolling with it anyway. Feel free to skip to the next code related post. Nobody said every post had to be tech related. Did they? </metaBlogging> I was having an interesting conversation with my son tonight. Somehow we started on art and meandered over in to the subject of story patterns. ......

In my previous post I laid out my current pet project and began showing the framework I set up to isolate CSLA business objects from the data access code. I listed (sans code comments for brevity) the static factory class and interfaces for a data access abstraction. You can find this post here: http://geekswithblogs.net/T... ......

Ok, Let’s try this again. <ObligatoryIShouldBlogMo... Skip='DontCareJustShowMeThe... Way back when I decided to blog more often because, well, mainly someone told me I should. That didn’t work out, but I still like Scott Hanselman’s idea as a blog as a place to keep cool code ideas. Well, he says that’s why he started the blog anyway. ......

I, like probably so many of the rest of you, was mortified when Reflector was sold to RedGate. I knew where it was going. Suddenly you had to install it instead of just download and run it. I had a deep down feeling that one of the most useful tools in my arsenal was about to become a corporate product and no longer belong to the world of free tools. ......

On my current project I found it useful to use both NUnit and MsTest for unit testing. When using ReSharper for running unit tests, it just simply works better with NUnit, and on large scale projects NUnit tends to run faster. We would have just simply used NUnit for everything, but MSTest gave us a few bonuses out of the box that were hard to pass ......

So about three years ago, around the time of my last blog post, I promised a friend I would write this post. Keeping promises is a good thing, and this is my first step towards easing back into regular blogging. I fully expect him to return from Pennsylvania to buy me a beer over this. However, it’s been an… ahem… eventful three years or so, and blogging, ......

Back from hiatus. I've never had an excuse to do remote debugging until recently, but I've always heard that it's a serious pain in the ***, hence, I avoided it. Recently I really needed it to work, and of course, it didn't. Remote debugging seems to be a little easier than it used to be, and if you do enough searching you'll eventually find what you ......

This is one interview question I ask in every interview, and I get a lot of grief for it. I've done it for years. I used to work for a guy who was primarily a Delphi developer, and he as much as ordered me to not ask that anymore. I think it's a fair question. People who work in IT using an object oriented language should have a basic grasp on what ......

I started this blog back in September with a particular purpose in mind. Every yahoo and his brother has a blog these days, and by far the majority of them are absolute trash, but every so often there's a gem. As developers, we seem to mostly agree on which ones are the gems. Non-developers most likely have different lists, depending on their focus. ......

It doesn't seem like all that long ago I was trying to get my head around exactly what a delegate was. Honestly it wasn't that hard for me coming from a C++ background, since they were an awful lot like function pointers. But still, the concept was just a little different. In the interest of making your UI more responsive, it's a good idea to thread ......
