Well, the 2010 St. Louis Day of .Net is over. It was a great conference with over 680 attendees. I presented two topics this year and have made the presentations and source code available. Thing Every C# Developer Should Understand (presentation) Building Loosely Coupled and Extensible Applications (presentation) (MEF calculator source) Thanks to the ......

I presented a session named Introduction to Threading at the St. Louis Day of .Net this year. I have uploaded my presentation AND all source examples to the following location. Link If you unzip the file, you will find all the source files inside and the Visual Studio .Net 2008 solution file. Please let me know if you have any issues or questions. Thanks ......

This year’s conference concluded today I must say I think it was a great success. The facilities at the Ameristar were very good and thanks to all the other speakers for the work you did. Good job. I also was able to meet up with some old friends and make some new ones. I delivered sessions this year on C# 3.0 for C# 2.0 developers and Introduction ......

As many have been complaining about for a while there appears to be no x64 version of the Cisco Systems VPN Client. I am required to use this to connect to my network at work. This application will only install on an x86 box and I am currently running x64 at my home. I have no desire to switch back to x86 and was frustrated trying to locate an x64 client. ......

I have been running Windows 7 for a while now, and I came across an odd problem the other day. The gadgets that I loaded disappeared.

Then I remembered that I had ......

When I have had to do this in the past, I used either a program like Snagit, or I would do the Alt-PrintScreen and paste into an image editing tool like ......

So I got a copy of the beta of Windows 7 and installed it on my desktop computer at home on a separate drive. I still have Vista x64 installed and decided to do a separate install of Windows 7 based on previous experiences with Microsoft Betas. I must say that the install went very well and so far I have only found a few things that do not install on ......

I am not sure how many out there have machines that are capable of running a 64 bit operating system, but my new machine is. I originally installed x86 Vista (32 bit) and pretty quickly removed it in favor of Windows XP. I know that I am not the only one who has done that. I have been reading quite a bit that Vista is Windows ME version 2 (for all of ......

I really enjoyed the first St. Louis Day of .Net. There were over 200 people that showed up! My session this year was on Open Source Solutions for Application Lifecycle Management. Besides being one of the non totally Microsoft sessions, I also had the honor of having the longest title for the entire Day of .Net. Application Lifecycle Management is ......
