CSLA: Rocky speaks
Just got a chance to hear Rocky speak this past week on CSLA. Lemme tell you; the guys seriously knows his stuff. He makes some great cases for the decisions he made while writing the framework...things like why we use string literals in some places, how the no-inlining attribute affects CSLA, etc. Excellent, really. But, most valuable of all, he explained what CSLA does for you that you don't even know it does while it does it. He also evangelizes his approach to building software (for example, ......

The Traveling Consultant Speaks on the TSA, Pt. 2
For some background on this: check here Ok, here's the deal. I am tired of having my flying experience made more potentially inconvenient for measures that frankly seem pointless. Basically, my travel will be complicated because someone is in a bad mood? What if a cabbie gives me a hard time at DFW (and OMG do they), and I come to the checkpoint in a sour mood? Will my behaviour trigger some serious background checking? This, to me, is tantamount to thoughtcrime. Someone external will make a judgement ......

CSLA: Clone Loses Events
I've recently seen something interesting occurring with CSLA and thought I'd stick a note in here about it. Basically, when we save with a clone, any events hooked to it are lost.

It might look like this: Private Sub SomeList_Saved(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Csla.Core.SavedEventArgs) Handles _SomeList.Saved <set control properties approriately> End Sub Well, when saving ......

NoInlining, Rocky Style

I was looking for a concise explanation of the NoInlining attribute used in CSLA (someone asked me to explain it and I hacked the explanation up pretty badly). I found a good explanation on Rocky's site, so thought I would share.

A cool band and other random stuff
Been away from work and the blog for a week. A nice week with the kids. We saw the Lion King traveling production, saw the new Harry Potter in IMAX, and even went to Carowinds (despite the recommendations of friends). I also have become a huge fan of Guitar Hero. I bought a GH game machine (someone was calling it a "PS2" or something). I've even heard rumors that my GH machine will play other games! I also have hired a cool band for the wedding in November. They are called Gael Warning. As soon as ......
