    Old school problem solvers wanted

    My commute was longer than usual today, so I had some extra time to read and think. The April 2005 issue of Software Development (available only in print form at this moment – See! advertisers still prefer eyeballs on paper to eyeballs on pixels) has...

    Cool Extension to the Configuration Tool in Enterprise Library

    Another thing I thought I would never see… Olaf created a pretty creative way of extending the actual Configuration Console tool itself. With this extension you actually take advantage of the Service Provider model exposed in the tool. Because...
