Just wanted to say that all the posts I made in here have been moved to a new url, namely http://www.dotnetjack.com This move will hopefully push myself to make more posts and do more crazy stuff to write about. Hopefully some of you out there will have a peek and again hopefully some of those will even come back or put it in their feed :) ......

The hosts file of Windows, by default located in %SystemRoot%\System32\drive... can be a bitch to edit, so it seems. I had an XP machine running just fine with the entries from my hosts file. I then made a Windows7 partition on the same machine, with the same entries in the hosts file. Didn’t work at all. It seemed as if the hosts file was completely ......

Allright, so my last short post was about the fixedsys font not being available in the RC version of Windows 7. However, it’s there, but it seems to be depending on your language settings. Now, being the proud little Belgian that I am, I have my language set to Belgain period. Not a good thing it seems, when you are a big fan of Fixedsys. But it can ......

It’s been only a few days now since Windows7 made it to the point of full-time OS on my toys, but as a huge fan of the good old FixedSys font I am shocked.

WHERE is the fixedsys font in windows7? And don’t you dare tell me you threw it out!



LINQ is something that has had my full attention ever since it was released. And I’ve been wanting to do something on this blog with LINQ, but never really found the inspiration to do something “special” with it. Up until now. So it occurred to me that there is not (to my knowledge) anything available that allows you to incorporate your LINQ way-of-work ......

The Administration console that is delivered with the installation of BizTalk allows a user to query suspended service instances and resume or terminate them accordingly. However, when you want to go “outside the box”, and I often do :) you might want to consider finding out possibilities of doing those actions yourself, for instance from a web based ......

There are many cases in BizTalk environments when one want to re-inject a message into their system. I’m mainly referring to testing environments where it doesn’t really matter if a message is repeated. However, it can also be preferred to copy the context of the message into the newly injected message, because your system might want to do some processing ......

My shortest blog post ever, but just so you know: if you don’t name your properties in WiX fully uppercased (eg INSTALLOCATION) WiX won’t recognize them as global properties.

If I had known this from the beginning, it would have saved me about two days… *F-word*



There is a time in every person’s life where one likes to recap about long lost projects. Little pieces of code that made you happy inside once it was completed. Well today, I had this moment. The project I’m talking about is something I came up with after a school lesson on fractals. I won’t be getting much into that, as I am assuming everyone knows ......

10, 11, and 12 March 2009, Microsoft is hosting TechDays ‘09 in our beloved Antwerp. Last year I was unable to attend all days, but this year I’ll be there from start to end.

The agenda hasn’t been published yet, so I hope there will be lots of developer sessions planned.
