  • Blog Post: Windows Azure Links

    I've decided it's probably best to have a single page I update with links to good info on Windows Azure from other peers at Microsoft as well as those coming from the community instead of posting individual entries every once in a while. If you know of some links for sites that are focusing on Windows...
  • Blog Post: Snippy - C# Code Snippet Editor

    Update (1/31/08): It looks like Snippy has now found a home on CodePlex . I haven't been maintaining it for a few years now, so I'm not sure what it has become but feel free to check it out and ask the folks who seem to be working on it now for any more details. Update (10/4/05): This page is a bit...
  • Blog Post: Uptime 2000 - Displays system's uptime transparently on your desktop

    Features: A tiny Win32 application (C++) that displays the system's up-time either in a small (transparent) window on your desktop or in a tool tip whenever you hover over the UpTime 2000 icon in the system tray. Install Instructions: Unzip the uptime2k.zip archive into a new directory. Run the uptime...

  • Blog Post: RightSideUp - Automatically rotates images based on EXIF data

    Update (1/3/06): Find the latest info on RightSideUp on my main blog from now on. A .NET application that automatically rotates images in a folder using EXIF data stored in the image by some cameras. There's no longer a need to go through each image and manually rotate them yourself. If your digital...
  • Blog Post: Space Invaders - Another clone of the classic game

    A .NET version of the classic game. It's all written in C# and uses GDI+ (not DirectX) for graphics. If I do any more work on this it'll probably be to port it to DirectX and add a few of the remaining features needed to do everything the original did (e.g. aliens move down, shields, etc.). Feel free...
  • Blog Post: My Software Projects

    Below is a list of C# (mostly) applications I've written over time. They're all free, so do as you please. Utilities: RightSideUp - Automatically rotates images using image's EXIF data (C# source available) Wordy - Provides quick access to a dictionary via system tray (C# source available...
  • Blog Post: Wordy - Quick dictionary access via system tray

    Another C# app I wrote ages ago that I still use on every single one of the machines I use. Wordy lives in the tray and provides a quick way of looking up a word's definition. I use this at least a couple of times a day as my vocabulary has never been a strong point. Ways to look up a word: Copy a word...
  • Blog Post: ezClip - Command-line clipboard utility

    This is a tiny C# application I wrote a while back that allows you to copy/paste files via the clipboard. The main scenario I use it in is when I have multiple command prompt windows open and I want to copy files from one to the other without having to type in paths, etc. Usage Information: usage: ezClip...
  • Blog Post: Inline Warning Control

    There has been plenty of talk on four of the bigger new features in the C# compiler/language: generics, anonymous methods, iterators, and partial types. There are however several other new features that could use some love as well. One of them is '#pragma warning'. Using this feature you can disable...
  • Blog Post: Testing the C# Compiler #2

    Lots of questions were sent my way after the last post about testing the compiler. A lot of them can be answered by providing some example tests that show some real code and demonstrate how a test works in our world. So that's what I'll attempt to do in this post. I'm keeping the tests as simple as possible...
  • Blog Post: Testing the C# Compiler #1

    One of my intentions when I first started this blog was to focus some on software testing in general but also provide a view of how we test the C# compiler as well. I've miserably failed at both of those so far. But I guess it's never too late to start. Every time Eric and I chat about blogging and I...
