CSS Adapter: Beta 3 released
CSS Adapter beta 3 was released just over a week ago now so this is probably old news!! However you should know that the bug I found detailed here is still there, so I still needed to edit a little of the code for IE6 to work OK. However another bug I was invloved seems to be fixed, I must say this fixed bug is certainly more important one to fix so top marks to Russ Helfand on this. Anyone who is yet to use this, I would at least recommend using it on the Menu control; I have saved around 20KB on ......

Atlas to AJAX: Cascading Drop Down
In my last post I went over a couple of problems I am found while migrating to the new AJAX beta framework. Mainly this was related to Web Services with a little on the Cascading drop down control...I have since got some more info in about this control so instead of updating that post I thought that the Cascading drop down deserved one all of its own!!! :) I am only going to cover the problems I found when migrating; this is not a tutorial on using the control. There are plenty of those around! 1. ......

Colour - soooo important! Find the HEX value of any colour.
I love working with our designers to get a great UI, I'm lucky enough to normally develop my applications/systems across all tier's, not a huge fan of SQL development but any coding is better than none...right!!! anyway presentation layer development is one of my favorite. Now with the power of Microsoft AJAX Library (so PC!) in my backpocket we can really pull off some great looking and ' awesome experience' UI's. Well being a programmer my flare for layout and colour co-ordination is not fantastic!! ......

Visual Studio 2005 Crash Dump
I have been having a problem with VS 2005 and CSS files, often when i try and save a CSS file VS will crash. Some of you have probably got the same issue???

dotnet User Group? Code Camp? in the UK - No!

I often read people blogs and they are off to Code camp or some event with their user group talking about the free stuff they get from MS and well, I want to go! BUT...I live in England, near Bristol.  I can't seem to find any such thing near me!

So (two part question!)

1.  Is anyone out their from my area and part of a dot net user group?

2.  How would I go about starting one? Who is the best person to contact about this?

Rome - What a place
Well, I got back from Rome about a week ago so I thought I would blog my thoughts and a couple of pics for you to take a look at. The city is pretty mental, I have never seen driving like that before!!!! Probably the most impressive city (architecturally speaking) in the world especially considering so many of the buildings were build about 2000 years you should see the Colosseum, WOW! We actually had a guide take us round which made it even better. Everywhere you look you are amazed by ......
