aah, I'm finally comfortable typing at home. I got the Microsoft 4000 keyboard at work a while ago and I finally got it at home. It's like typing on butta. On ZipZoomFly with optical mouse for $42 here..http://www.zipzoomfly... I'm sure SOMEONE at work (you know who you are) would disagree that this is the greatest ......

I have noticed one definate benefit Vista's UAC brings to developers: allowing them to work as an administrator, and explicitly notice everything their program does that a regular user can't do. Often times, software won't run as a non-administrator because developers run on their own machine as administrator and see nothing wrong with the concept that ......

I thought of a really cool use for generic-like syntax for parameterizing variable declaration beyond types. It would be awesome if generics could be used to specify dimensions within a struct. My case, I wanted to implement a Vector struct with a parametric dimension. So if I was using a vector in R2, I could create the struct as Vector<2>. If in R3...

Well I’ve been using home VOIP service for about 3 months now, and figure it’s been long enough to share an opinion on it. I signed up for AT&T Callvantage service and was a little skeptical. I’d read about AT&T and Vonage and both had mixed reviews. I still decided to take the plunge with AT&T (click title for entire article...)

Well I was literally about to sit down and write about my disappointment in the November WinFX CTP's absense of a visual designer for XAML, when I saw Aaron Stebner's blog announcing the December CTP. Too bad I just recently got the November CTP installed! (it's installer kept complaining about a CAB that wasn't properly signed, finally got it installed ......

After unsuccessful attempts at installing Team Foundation Server Beta 3 Refresh, I ended up using the Release Candidate VPC with Virtual Server 2005. I couldn't stand the performance so I decided to move the virtual image to a physical drive. After a lot of unsuccessful attempts, I finally came up with a working solution....

update: Caleb pointed out that while they were using the RTM of VS2005, they were using the CTP of another product that ties in with VS so hopefully that was the problem update #2: ok I've been using it quite extensively now, and havn't had much of those problems so it looks like those problems were from the other installed CTP. ......

Well I had a big feeling “Prison Break” would be a big let-down for their “fall finale”. As I suspected they would end with no real solution. I think 24 was the restart of (click title to view whole post)....

Man, this sure was a doozy. My company's product exposes web services via a Cassini-like web server, the types are exposed to the runtime similar to the way remoting objects can be registered. This was all fine and dandy, but on Windows Server 2003, asp.net libraries do not work if IIS is not installed. We were about to lose a large business opportunity ......

I finally tried out SQL Server 2005 today. I used the express edition, figure I'll get enough of the full featured versions at work and wanted to check out the express experience. It was MUCH easier to get up and running with a simple test. The only roadblock was enabling the CLR, but after a few minutes I finally found the “Surface Area Configuration” ......

I had a problem I was debugging where the framework was throwing an exception about 15 levels deep into it's own stack, and my code calling it was perfectly valid. I came accross this very useful entry on The Code Project by Sumeet Kumarhttp://www.codeproject... Basically you're able to use ildasm to extract the framework's ......
