Book Review | Advanced .NET Debugging (Addison Wesley) by Mario Hewardt
We I first received this book, I was not sure what to expect. When it comes to development topics on debugging the spectrum is very wide. Most developers, including myself, only use basic techniques for day-to-day debugging. These get us through our problems quickly and they work well for 80% of the bugs we encounter. We forgot to close a connection, we didn't set a variable, we forgot to exit a loop, we fat fingered a variable name. All of these are daily errors we as developers face and fix with ......

Windows Virtual PC | My *flicker* First *flicker* Experiences
Well I have been using WVPC for Windows 7 RTM for about a week now and there are a few things I like and a few things I don’t. First off, why at the end of 2009 do we still not have a “multiple monitor” story that doesn’t require me to put quotations around the words. This RDP style of one giant monitor span across your two monitors is not a solution, it hasn’t been since it came out. Secondly, What *flicker* is *flicker* up *flicker* with *flicker* all *flicker* the *flicker* flickering? I have ......

Community | gets an great update
My favorite Regular Expression resource,, received a very nice face lift and enhancement recently and I thought you would like to know. For sometime now, the site was sort of broken, search features were not working, paging through the expressions were flaky and it looked like it was on the verge of going away. However, it looks like Steve Smith and the team were making some major enhancements and I am really excited to run into my next RegEx issue and being able to use this resource. ......

Windows Virtual PC | Integrated Pointer Configuration
I have been converting my current client’s development environment to a VPC instead of taking over my main machine as we did to get the project kicked off. I decided to go with Windows Virtual PC now that it has RTMed, but quite a bit has changed. Once I had Windows 7 installed and VS 2008 configured, I started looking for a multiple monitor solution for VPCs. In the past, I had just lived with the limitation of running virtual and not getting the benefit of dual monitors. This time I wanted something ......

Downloads | Microsoft SyncToy 2.1 Released
A few days ago Microsoft released an update to one of my favorite PowerToys, SyncToy. This is a must have if you are a portable user and you want to get a quick backup of your files (photos, videos, source code, etc) by folder for free. SyncToy 2.1 I have been using this for a few versions now and it is great at syncing or backing up folder to folder onto USB flash or hard drives. The scenarios I use it in are: Backup of photos pre and post processing from my D300 and D700. Backup of source code ......

Working with Bristowe on ESF
Last night, John Bristowe and I started discussing ESF and his Newsgator extension to support the spec. It is very cool. With Newgator 2.0, you can build your own extensions to support other frameworks and do whatever you want inside Outlook. He is wanting to make an ESF feed create Calendar events. His first try was very cool. If you don't know what ESF is, check it out here and please give us feedback. INETA is planning to be one of the first users of the format and Bristowe will be changing the ......
