What did you pray for on our “National Day of Prayer” (May 1, 2008)? I prayed for a world in which CPU’s would be free to get their work done with optimal saturation, and that no thread would ever be blocked and no reader or writer would ever be starved ......

I recently had to return a Treo 700wx cell phone to my cellular provider. Not wanting to return all of my confidential contacts and appointments to the store with the phone, I wanted o clear its memory. I began deleting contacts one at a time and soon realized that this was going to be an all-day affair, as I have hundreds of contacts. There was no ......

I'll cross post for awhile to this blog; however, I'm now also posting on the Wintellect blog site at http://www.wintellect.com/cs/blogs

 



Workflow Foundation (WF) catches the unhandled exceptions of any workflow instance that it’s charged with running. Upon catching the unhandled exception of a workflow instance, WF terminates it and raises a WorkflowTerminated event where it generously includes the exception in the event arguments. At first glance this seemed like a reasonable approach. ......

On Earth Day 2007, Charles Petzold blogged about his recollection of a speech by Ayn Rand in the 70’s. He ponders if Ayn might have altered her thinking if she were alive today (although I think he had his tongue in his cheek). He quotes Ayn as stating that “pollution was the sign of a healthy economy,” and that (with a thick Russian accent) “Vee vill ......

If Windows Communication Foundation .svc files show up in your browser as the textual content of the file rather than launching your service on XP SP2, (e.g. you get <@ServiceHost ...etc...>) your IIS Metabase may have been corrupted by previous beta installation of WCF. Download the CleanIISScriptMaps utility from the .netfx3 website and run ......

The latest version of Orcas is available as a VPC here: http://www.microsoft.com/do... The problems is that the image ships with the operating system requiring immediate activation and a password that seems to have suffered a character translation; both of which can keep ......

This is a good “must-read” article on agile: http://www.ddj.com/blog/win... It has been my experience working in Olympia that often the importance of the adherence to time estimates which cannot possibly be accurate are held as some form of sacrosanct ideal. This is unfortunate because it forces the reality of ......

If your a techno-geek over 40, then you're almost certainly a Rush fan too. They have a new album coming out in May, and will be going on tour again this year! Yes, of course... http://www.rush.com will take you there!

 



The Business Rules Engine of Windows Workflow Foundation does not appear to update value type fields that are part of a structure. When the THEN action of a rule is executed and a calculation updates a value type in a struct, the value of the structure member remains zero. Turning on tracing of the execution of individual business rules shows successful ......

I received the following communication this morning from Jason Mauer, our Developer Evangelist. Because of the late breaking location change, please pass along! Code Camp Agenda The preliminary agenda has been posted and is available online at http://seattle.techevents.i... . Please double check before the event to confirm session ......

The August 2006 edition of Scientific American has an interesting article on how the brain gains mastery of a subject matter. http://www.sciam.com/articl... The article focuses on the mastery of the game of chess, but extrapalates to other disciplines as well. In short: Amateurs ......

I blogged last year on how C# centric the 2005 Tech Ed conference was... this year all sessions that I attended were given in C#. C# receives a high degree of preference in presentations and online code samples and the trend seems to be continuing.



It appears that console hosted Windows Workflow applications hang and CPU usage climbs to 100% when executing the CreateWorkflow method from program.cs when Mailframe's Testrunner is installed on the same machine. Testrunner is a Visual Studio add-in that integrates running NUnit tests and provides test performance and coverage metrics (good when a ......

Microsoft Corporate V.P. Developer Division Soma Somasegar announced today on his blog that the WinFX name will be officially changed to .NET Framework 3.0. Windows Workflow Foundation will also be a part of the .NET 3.0 Framework. ......
