Give Your Everyday Custom Collections a Design-Time Makeover
Paul Ballard has written an excellent article for the latest MSDN Magazine (August 2005) about custom collections. I am currently in the midst of a project that uses custom collections a lot, so naturally I have a healthy interest in the subject ;-) I have to admit that I haven't read it in full yet, just browsed through it. Pauls suggested implementation of interfaces etc. is great as inspiration - I've done most of it like he does, but I may have missed a few nice details (like implementing IEditableObject ......

[MCMS] Stefan Gossner : Documented / Undocumented API - Why Should I care?
Our man Stefan has published a series of articles explaining why using "doubtful" methods when customizing your MCMS application hardly ever is any good.Remember that if you make calls to undocumented API parts or edit the database directly, your solution will no longer be supportable by Microsoft. Which sucks whenever you might need it...In other words, read these articles if you are the least bit in doubt whether your app is playing by the rules or not. Come to think of it - read them anyway, it's ......

bodytag - web programming explorations
bodytag - web programming explorations is a great website when you need a bit (or a lot) of inspiration. I can't remember how I got there, but I surely stayed for a while!I'm mostly (if not only) interested in the DHTML or JS bits, so those are the only ones I can comment on. When I saw the code for the 3Dballs example, it seemed very simple. And yet the effect is so striking.Me like!!!Another great resource for stuff like that is http://youngpup.net/code/ - just take a lot at this Cropper, he just ......

Color scheme generators
Stumbled across a few very nice (online) color scheme generators, and although the first one is by far the coolest to me, other people may prefer a different kind of app. ColorBlender.com | Your free online color matching toolbox - truly awesome GUI, and a vast array of options. My new favorite color schemer! slayeroffice color palette creator v1.6. Slayeroffice.com has a bunch of cool tools, the color palette creator is of many. Creating colour palettes - An article that apparently have been inspiring ......

ASP.NET Home: On the Way to Mastering ASP.NET: Introducing Custom Entity Classes
ASP.NET Home: On the Way to Mastering ASP.NET: Introducing Custom Entity Classes This article provides a superb "entrance point" for anyone who wishes to know more about really utilizing the OO capabilities of the .NET framework. Learn how to create "wrappers" for your database interaction, thereby creating some kind of Data Access Layer between SQL and GUI. You can even use your own (newly created) classes when binding to standard .NET controls like the DataGrid. Great article ......

Scoble is looking for names for Longhorn
Lazycoder - Scoble is looking for names for Longhorn: "But honestly, calling Longhorn names and making fun of Microsoft for being so late and so lame is a little like booing at the Special Olympics."

Zing!!! Well said, Scott!

CodeTranslator: Free Code Translation From VB.NET <-> C#
Weird. Thought I had already blogged about this genious tool: CodeTranslator: Free Code Translation From VB.NET C# offers a) acceptable translation, b) an option to colorize output - c) as you write!. Only very few bugs remain, including some parenthesis missing at the end for instance .ToString(). That's pretty easy to live with... Can't seem to find the post I may or may not have created on this earlier, so I'm giving it another try. (bump? ;-) ......

Whatever: John Scalzi's Utterly Useless Writing Advice
While surfing sellsbrothers.com for stuff, I found a link to John Scalzi's Utterly Useless Writing Advice, which aren't completely useless.

And I also found Wahoo!, a .NET version of Tetris, complete with source code. Could be an interesting "study project".
