  • Blog Post: Moving this blog -- need opinions

    To move the comments, or not to move the comments? Whether tis nobler to leave every URL intact or by moving them break them? I'm pretty certain I can move all the posts without egregious problems, but the comments may be another matter. Would anyone care if they stayed here? Would anyone care and/or...
  • Blog Post: Browser Security Test

    Run 37 tests to make certain your browser isn't letting anything in you don't want. [via ACMEbinary ]
  • Blog Post: TechEd, will I be there?

    I haven't a clue. Last I heard I'd be able to go if I ride my bike there. Still, Scott & Rory will be there (along with a lot of other Really Smart Folk), and you'll even be able to get them to explain this in person...
  • Blog Post: Querying RSS

    During my early (OK, post 8am) reading this morning I saw this on Jon Udell's blog . Like much of Jon's writing and "little apps", it blew me away, and got me thinking of how I could use it for myself. Maybe not using XQuery (likely too much for my head), but having a nice DB of posts, normalized to...
  • Blog Post: ... but who will manage the Managers?

    I know my blog is in serious danger of turning into a recruiting site or even (heaven forbid) a recruiters' blog , but I have another job offer for you. Our Site Management team (the good folk who keep MSDN and TechNet running tickety-boo to the tune of about 100MM page views (MSDN) and 19MM (TechNet...
  • Blog Post: Second Edition, now with more brain-thumping goodness

    Just got a copy of the second edition of Advanced .NET Remoting by Ingo (and now also Mario Szpuszta ). I had the good fortune of squeezing my brain through it a while back (and lived!). While the talk continues, you really need to read as much of this book as you can. It's not only THE best book on...
  • Blog Post: Whatever happened to SNOBOL?

    I remember it was going to revolutionize text parsing , or something. I love this history , it just feels so relaxing looking at it.
  • Blog Post: Jobs, jobs, jobs (ASP.NET edition)

    While I wouldn't normally post job openings for "just anyone", Scott certainly isn't just anyone. He's the Software Architect for one of the first companies I had the pleasure of working with when .NET was still in the glimpse stage, as well as one of the most active MVPs and RDs out there. So, if you...
  • Blog Post: YABRT: Yet Another Blog Ranking Tool

    While browsing my Bloglines subscriptions, I see that there is yet another tool available for monitoring the "importance" of blogs -- PubSub . From their site: LinkRanks are a measure of how many pages link to each particular site, with more weight given to fresher links and to links from a wider variety...
  • Blog Post: This must be in the frequently asked questions, isn't it?

    I want to get a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) list up for ASP.NET, but before I do I have a few questions for you. Would this be a useful addition to the site? If no, go to #4 below If yes, what format? Should I use a similar format to the C# FAQ ? Something like Longhorn ? Or use Scott's new FAQ...
  • Blog Post: In Remembrance

    I'm not usually known for "pro patria mortis" feelings, but thank a veteran today. IN FLANDERS FIELDS In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short...
  • Blog Post: If you don't put in your $1.05, who will?

    Time for the foreigner to exhort all US citizens to go out & vote on Tuesday. I don't feel that anyone has the right to tell you who to vote for, but I feel that I must tell you *to* vote. People who feel the need to live in a democracy and not exercise it aren't. (assuming that makes sense) After...
  • Blog Post: Jobs @ MSDN

    Shawn and Matt posting about some of the many jobs available at MSDN, in case you know of anyone interested. Also hidden (mostly) in Matt's posting -- the Mighty D is moving from "Content Strategy" to fulltime dev again. He'll be building the infrastructure for MSDN going forward. Hopefully he'll still...
  • Blog Post: Buy Visual Studio .NET 2003, get a boat load of fun

    I've been reminded by The Powers That Be™ that I haven't provided enough public noise around Visual Studio .NET Professional 2003 Special Edition . So, here we go. If you haven't purchased Visual Studio .NET 2003 yet (and if you haven't -- "Bad Zoot. evil, naughty Zoot!"), the Special edition is an excellent...
  • Blog Post: MSDN += new RssFeeds() ';

    Duncan has been working on our new RSS generation system . The new one he's created should be more flexible, accurate and up-to-date. He's looking for feedback on the new format as well. There are two changes we're really interested in feedback. First, he added category support. This is added in two...
  • Blog Post: Blogjutsu vs. spam

    In between my other e-mails, I get a fair bit of spam (as I'm sure all of you do as well). Every once & a while, I get one that I feel like researching a little. ( DNSStuff rocks for this) While spending a few moments tracking down the source of one, I came across a website with a *fabulous* idea...
  • Blog Post: Attack of the mini-meme

    meme : /meem/ [coined on analogy with `gene' by Richard Dawkins] n. An idea considered as a {replicator}, esp. with the connotation that memes parasitize people into propagating them much as viruses do. More colloquilally: a way to store/share a moment in time by a number of people. Today's meme...

  • Blog Post: Welcome to the 'mythical' Frank Redmond... ;)

    My manager, and man- about .NET Framework , Frank E. Redmond III has joined us all in blogdom . Welcome him, and get him to tell some tales of COM+ and SQL... (and my favourite, Executants and Emissaries) TTFN - Kent PS: I call him mythical as a previous co-worker was convinced he wasn't a real...
  • Blog Post: E GAD -- I've been shamed...

    OK, Andrew has shamed me . I am one of the many that run as Admin. I will try, but I suspect it may be a short trial. If only Windows did installs etc. the way it's done on the Mac. There, you are presented with a 'Manager override' dialog, letting you decide to install or not. Progress reports to...

  • Blog Post: OOF

    As Eric says , there is a tradition at Microsoft of setting your OOF (Out Of oFfice) message when you'll be gone for a while, often to something humourous (inspirational message, haiku, etc.) Looks like D gave someone a nice present this Valentine's day -- himself: Out of Office AutoReply...
  • Blog Post: Thunderbird 0.4

    Old news for some (in this day & age where something being released two days ago counts as old news), but version 0.4 of Thunderbird (the Mozilla e-mail program) has just been released. For those of you who don't know it, an excellent, small (about 20MB on disk -- rot my soul for calling something...
  • Blog Post: I think I'm ready for Monday...

    Everything here at the MSDN machine was just a little.... urgent today. Controlled and calm, but urgent (at least in my office). Still, I think I'm ready. Whidbey section in place, Authors section in place, current version of my life generated out to stage. For those of you in or going to LA, see...
  • Blog Post: The Secret of the Starter Kits

    I couldn't resist. I've been trying to showcase the ASP.NET Starter Kits for a while now, especially since their "1.0" release. However, I don't think I've ever managed to express it as well as Darren did: http://weblogs.asp.net/dneimke/posts/9253.aspx The ASP.NET Starter Kits are an excellent...
