Tip of the Day #3 – Transparency - How to make your Silverlight control transparent.
Mike Snow is trying to drive me crazy I think... or he's enabling something :) ... yesterday I found this Tip of the Day #3 and thought... geez... did I miss 1 and 2? ... so I looked and heck no... I had them, but they weren't labeled that way... then today he posted Number 12... 12? ... yikes.. nope... he went back and renumbered them again... stop, you're making my headache worse ... lol ... ok, so this one, whatever it is numbered right now is on Silverlight and Transparency ... always something that comes up at some point.
Full Implementation of a Silverlight Policy Server.
Before typing this, I verified that this post is now Tip of the Day #12 :) ... but whatever it is when you read it... it's good and very useful, in Mike's words: "Below I will take you through every step you need to create and run your own policy server." ... good stuff.

Stay in the 'Light!
