Scott Van Vliet Once a Developer, Always a Developer Technology
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... ......

Simple Javascript Object Dump Function
In my years of doing Web development, I've written this function several times over; however, I can NEVER find the code when I need it! Thus, here is a simple Javascript function to dump the contents of any object (posted to share, but also for my own permanent reference!) <script language="javascript"> var MAX_DUMP_DEPTH = 10; function dumpObj(obj, name, indent, depth) { if (depth > MAX_DUMP_DEPTH) { return indent + name + ": <Maximum Depth Reached>\n"; } if (typeof obj == "object") ......

Macrodobe MAX 2006 Announced!

Ok, so I took some liberty in the event's name - but via Ben's blog, there WILL in fact be a MAX 2006, and this year it'll be in Las Vegas!  There are no other details, but hopefully they'll announce the call for speakers and I'll get a chance to present again (for my third consecutive year.)

Invirtus VM Optimizer Rules!
I know that VM Optimizer is old news; however, I had not given it enough credit when it first hit the blog circuit. I recently obtained a copy of VM Optimizer, and ran a few of my Virtual PC images through the gauntlet. I’m not sure if the version I tried a few months back was different than the one I used this time, but the results now were fantastic. On a base Windows Server 2003 Enterprise SP1, I reduced the image from 2.56 GB down to 1.52 GB – which eventually compressed to ~650 MB in RAR format! ......

Gmail Is (Was) Down
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! Gmail is (was) down. I think this is the first error I've EVER received when using Google's services (which I've been using since late 1999 / early 2000.) ......

Late Night Breezo Session
Still struggling to get over this damn cold, I pulled a late night yesterday to complete my Breezo for my sessions at MAX. I’m not sure when it’s going to be released, or if it’s going to be made publicly available; however, I’ll be sure to let you know when and where. If you do happen to view the Breezo, please forgive my nasally timbre. For those of you already in Anaheim – I’ll see you tonight at the welcome reception ......

.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, ......
