Geeks With Blogs
ICaramba Miguel Castro's blog about .NET and its effect on National Security, the Eco-system, and his daughter's sleeping patterns.
It’s been a great ride guys. I joined GeeksWithBlogs.com in order to get my first blog up and running and have been with you guys for some time. I’m not leaving because of any problem whatsoever, I just wanted to get my blog up on my own domain with more control over the customization of many of its pages. My new blog is now at http://www.dotnetdude.com. ......

Effective immediately, my blog is hosted on www.dotnetdude.com.

This blog will no longer be updated so please check out my new one and update your RSS feed with this link.

I just watched episode 3 of Russ' new show on Channel 9 and I gotta say, it totally rocked. Russ knows how to work a crowd and knows how to keep things interesting and energized. Here's the link. I strongly recommend this show. http://channel9.msdn.com/sh... ......

UHHHHHHHHHHGGGGG !!!!! There, I got that out. I just received my first Facebook Phishing attempt. This is unbelievable - can we please pass a friggin law that allows the death-penalty for these assholes?!? I'm sorry folks - I've always watched my language on this blog, but I find no other way of describing these people. I got this email today: ---------------------------... ......

I've been using and teaching the ASP.NET Provider Model for some time now so I always felt quite well versed on the topic, specially in the context of membership and security. I thought I understood the "order of operation" in ASP.NET membership pretty well so every time I found the need to write a custom membership provider, I approached the task with ......

Regarding the Feb 2007 posting I made (http://geekswithblogs.net/... and the responses I've had, I feel I need to revisit that opinion (even though it was over a year and a half ago). I run two powerful rigs at home, Superrig runs Vista 64 (8gig RAM) and contains two NVidia 8600GTS cards (640meg each). This ......

I received an MSN instant message from a friend today who I know well but only ocassionally chat with. His status showed as offline and for someone I talk to only once in a while, it was weird getting an IM from him with just a link. The link was to john.insaneimagz.com. His first name is John so this at first seemed legit, but then the page came up. ......

I while ago I did a case study with DevExpress. My product, CodeBreeze, was developed using the DevExpress DXPerience suite so they did a nice case study with me and here's the link: http://www.devexpress.com/H... Also, this year at TechEd I did an interview with Ray Navasarkian, the CEO of Developer Express, ......

Well, TechEd 2008 is over and so is my first speaking slot in this extremely large conference. My talk was "Sexy Extensibility Patterns" and I was properly inaugurized with an 8:30am slot on the second to the last day. However, to my amazement, 296 people showed up to watch my deflowering. The final averages were 8.13 which I'm told me puts me in the ......

I'm in the middle of writing an extender provider for something I need and I came across a pain-in-the-ass scenario. Extender providers, like controls, run at design time as well as run time. I needed to debug something in one of my set-accessor methods so I put in something like this: if ctl.Name = "controlName" then stop Man, all hell broke lose. ......

Well, it's been about 10 weeks since I launched the SteelBlue Site's store-front and the official release of CodeBreeze. Sales have been decent considering I haven't had time to do any marketing. If you're reading this and you're one of my customers, thank you for your business. All the comments I've received from my customers have exceeded any of my ......

Since the release of CodeBreeze about 2 months ago, I've made quite a few sales but all through personal contact using a PayPal account. I'm glad to say that's no longer necessary. You can purchase CodeBreeze at www.steelbluesolutions.com now ! Until November 30th, there is an online coupon (you'll see it in the checkout process) offering a 15% discount ......
