safari fix for the client library of atlas
If you're not using the control toolkit for The 2.0 atlas framework and are doing some client side scripting. you may find that the April CTP has doesn't always work in the safari browser. This is in part due to the way that safari attaches events. In the control toolkit they use the following script to "patch" the april CTP of The 2.0 atlas framework to support safari a whole lot better. Some might find it useful :-) 40 // This fixes a bug in the The 2.0 atlas framework Safari ......

Make ATLAS support the Guid in javascript
I use guids as PK in my databases. I like guids :) But The 2.0 atlas framework shows them as Object and that gives me some trouble using them in my The 2.0 atlas framework pages. But to implement your own converter is not so difficult you just inherit from the JavaScriptConverter and override those methods. And afterwards you have to register it in the converters section of the web.config The web.config 21 <microsoft.web> 22 <converters> 23 <add type="Microsoft.Web.Script.... ......

Django vs ruby
Ruby looks to me like a hack. I'm not the only one with problems there :) The following is from his blog post : I decided to ignore Ruby for the moment and focus on Rails. What i noted: Very simple to install and set up new projects You create a database and it’s tables, and Rails will handle them Things get messy when you want to write SQL instead of using the framework to access the data ......

Modern web design time division
My friend Miel found this site from poisoned minds. They have a nice breakdow on how time is really spent when developing a website. Of course this is good for a laugh :) I think they do have a point with the pure css lay-out. I for one am a dropshadow fan because if I put 2 divs on top of each other they need to look like there is some distance between them. I like the depth af the whole idea. Up till now I haven't found a way to create a rectangle with rounded corners and a dropshadow (like in ......

Essential Tools for web development
Peter has a post giving an overview of some tools that are essential to him as a developer. I would say that I use most of them but not all and I would like to add a few to the list because i mainly do webdevelopment and that's a different story then winforms.Obviously I made the choice to go for The 2.0 atlas framework so I won't sum up any other ajax frameworks. That is reserved for a separate post. AJAX/Web development: Internet Explorer : Fiddler ......

Guard your knowledge or share it ??
I'd go for sharing thank you :) I've learnt a lot from other people's blogs etc. I try to give some of it back but am affraid i don't do so much exiting stuff :) Kathy Sierra has a much longer post about whether you should share or guard your knowledge. In my opinion there is only one thing to do with knowledge and that is to share whatever you have, maybe somebody else can put it to better use than you can :) ......

.NET User group meeting tonight
Tonight we had a user group meeting on XForms. First let me tell you that I think it is a big shame that we don't get Xforms capabilities in IE6 or in IE7.It would get rid of all the javascript hassle and hoops we have to go through to get the simplest things done. Anyway, I've been working with The 2.0 atlas framework a bit more now. And it is really cool just a shame that i can't use other libraries in conjunction. But I still have to explore the animation api maybe if i can do things that ......
