How to Drop an Oracle Schema / User locked by ASP.NET
As part of our configuration management process with our offshore team, we often have to recreate our database schema in Oracle by dropping the schema owner and recreating that user as part of the create/import scripts delivered with a build. However, when trying to perform this task in our onshore Development, QA or UAT environments we are faced with an issue where the user could not be dropped due to the fact that said user was currently connected: DROP USER <user_to_drop> CASCADE *ERROR ......

RSS in .NET Made Easy with XML Serialization
Update 2010-03-23 – Sorry, but the images and downloads were hosted on a server that is no longer available. I will try to find the sample code bits and images on a backup sometime! Based on my previous rants, here’s a stereotype for this post: <<Casual_English_Used... So I was looking for a real quick way to publish an RSS feed from a Web application I created for a friend and found some great articles and components (RSS Toolkit for ASP.NET 2.0.) However, I didn’t find anything that ......

Broken Links Fixed
Update 2010-03-23 – Sorry, but the images and downloads were hosted on a server that is no longer available. I will try to find the sample code bits and images on a backup sometime! I recently moved to a new host, and being that I'm a lousy housekeeper, I forgot to update the links on this blog that point to downloads. I've gone through my posts and update the links; however, I thought it best to post an abridged listing here: Search Engine Safe URLs in ASP.NET http://www.scottvanvliet.co... ......

.NET Reference MSN Messenger Bot Update #2
Ok - I've received a lot of traffic on this service! I came back this evening to a huge log file, and saw that many people were typing in some interesting things (e.g. System.Skillet.Eats.Bologna.) Thanks to feedback from Lenny, we've learned that the service does not work with Trillian - not sure, just know that it doesn't work. I've also added the System.Data namespace to the service's content store. I think this is the start of something really cool. Some possible future features may include allowing ......

.NET Reference MSN Messenger Bot Update #1
Update 2010-03-23 – Sorry, but the images and downloads were hosted on a server that is no longer available. I will try to find the sample code bits and images on a backup sometime! I've made a few changes to this service after recieving quite a bit of traffic. The first version was not functioning properly when dotnetreference@hotmail.com was added to someone's Contact List; thus, I've set up the service to automatically add the user to the service's Contact List (rather than simply allowing all ......

.NET Reference Bot for MSN Messenger
I hate to rip people off, but Ben's brilliant idea to create an IM bot for the ColdFusion Live Docs got me to thinking; "Wouldn't this be great for the .NET Framework Class Libraries?" So, sitting here late on a Saturday night, I decided to have some fun ... I created a Windows Service that utlizes the DotMSN library (which is easy to use, and overall badass) to respond to messages from MSN Messenger sent to dotnetreference@hotmail.com. The message content will be used to search a list of classes, ......

MSRS / WSS Custom Header Update
I'm very sorry for my apparent lack of consideration regarding my last post! It seems that all comments and emails from my blog were being treated as spam and deleted from my mail server :( I have gone back through the site and view some of your comments, and realize that I foolishly left out the solution description for implementing a Custom Header in Reporting Services / Windows SharePoint Services. I intend on delivering the solution to you all; however, with so many folks interested, I have decided ......

Quick Search Engine Safe URL Module Update
Update 2010-03-23 – Sorry, but the images and downloads were hosted on a server that is no longer available. I will try to find the sample code bits and images on a backup sometime! I've received several emails regarding some errant debug code that was left in the Search Engine Safe URL HttpModule that I created and published on this blog. Lines 85 – 88 (found below) of the SesRequestFilter class were written to monitor the response buffer as I was developing this module. FileStream fs = File.OpenWrite(String.Forma... ......
