Jason Row .NET Development on the Canadian East Coast
The IWK Children’s hospital out of Halifax benefits all of us and is the only true children’s hospital in the Maritimes. This year there is a committee in Fredericton that is organizing a playoff hockey pool fundraiser in support of the IWK Hospital Foundation. Halifax has been running a similar event for the past 16 years and it has been very successful. ......

I was trying to get SQL Server 2008 express installed and every time I ran the installation program it kept coming up saying that my computer was failing the test that the computer required a restart. After a few restarts and the program still saying that my computer required a restart I came across this posting on the MSDN forums. I believe that my ......

I flattened my home PC this weekend and started to get "only part of a Readprocessmemory or Writeprocessmemory request was completed" error message when I tried to read any discs with my LG Dvd drive. Since the solution seemed rather obscure to me I figured I better post the answer that I found for the next time this happens to me. Go into your device ......

John Sheehan has a few .NET Cheat sheets listed on his site along with links to a number of other ones. Worth a look see.


Well after agreeing to take over managing my local user group I've managed to have 2 meetings in the past couple of months and interest seems to be building back up. On Wednesday it was my turn to present on some of the new T-SQL features found in SQL Server 2008. It felt good to be up front and presenting again as it has been a while for me. I was ......

Came across this today and it's on my Xmas wish list (or is that the pre-Xmas list). The Xbox 360 fanboy web site had a posting about the GoW2 branded Zune that is coming out on November 7th (The GoW2 launch date for those that didn't know). Engadget has a posting with some images while the Zune Insider talks about the price and who will be offering ......

The Igloo Coder is making his way east to present to the 4 atlantic .NET user groups. He'll be in Fredericton on Thursday October 23 to present to F.NUG.

Not very amazing or technical but thought I'd post a bit about it anyways. Anyone that gets asked how to show a repeating decimal in Word, for example representing the fraction 1/3 in decimal is 1.33333333 with 3 repeating to infinity. Normally there would be a line above the last 3 (the line is called a vinculum). Now to show the 3 with a line above ......

I was forwarded a link to a CIO.com article where they talk about how Microsoft and CompTIA are employing tools to analyze your behaviours when writing a certification test to determine if you have used any braindumps or illegal test preperation material. http://www.cio.com/article/... Interesting ......

Thanks to Wally McClure for sending me one of his ASP.NET podcast t-shirts! As far as I know I'm the first in Atlantic Canada to have one. Go give his show a listen ......

Tonight I traveled for 3 hours (roughly 300 kms) to attend the DevEast meeting in Moncton, NB. And in my mind it was worth it. In the most unusual place I've ever sat and listened to a presentation, I joined 8 others at AJs Pizza Place to listen to Derek Hatchard run through two presentations that's he's planning to give at DevTeach Toronto next week. ......

I saw Lou Vega's review about this book today and went ahead and ordered it from Amazon.ca (Chapters.Indigo.ca isn't carrying it). Sucks to have to wait 8-12 days but I'm not in that much of a hurry for it at the moment. I've been involved with my local .NET user group and I want to contribute more to the community so I figure there would be some good ......

It's time to vote for who you think is the top Individual Developer and the top Development Team in this year's MSDN Canada Code Awards. Honestly, I've been hearing about the contest for months and initially took a look at the site when they were looking for nominations. Not knowing anyone to nominate I only gave it a passing look. Now that the nominees ......

Just wondering if anyone could clarify a SharePoint question for me that relates to the TS: Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 - Application Development exam. One of the objectives being measured is to Configure a target computer for Windows SharePoint Services development and beneath this is a mention of SecurityAdministrator. I'm not sure if ......
