  • Blog Post: SQL Web Administrator

    Even with all of the many powerful resources at my demand to install, I still tend to install SQL Server Developer Edition. I guess it's just that I'm so used to just having that around for testing (and not wasting valuable CALs for testing purposes) that I just don't feel like installing Enterprise...
  • Blog Post: Meet the new boss, (not the) same as the old boss...

    In an attempt at our ongoing efforts to confuse everyone coming to MSDN balance the knowledge and workload at MSDN , we have shuffled a few of the Developer Centers around. While I will still be working on the ASP.NET Developer Center , I am reliquishing my duties on the Visual Studio Developer Center...
  • 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: ... 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: February CTP now available

    In honour of March 2, we now present {insert ta da here} The February Community Technology Preview (CTP) of Visual Studio 2005. This month, we have new versions of Visual Studio 2005 Professional (for MSDN Subscribers) and the fabulous Express products: http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/express/vbasic/default...
  • 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: The Outlook Web Access team is looking for web developers

    Web-based mail is hot. Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook Web Access... They're all making headlines and showing off the richness of the web. The Outlook Web Access team is looking for solid ASP.NET developers to help build our next version. We're looking for people with top-notch development skills, who have worked...
  • Blog Post: Pimping the pros

    A number of Microsoft Regional Directors , Wintellect folk and INETA speakers have put themselves up on the auction block to help the victims of the tsunami in South East Asia. Get an hour of Jeff Richter , Joel Semeniuk , Scott Hanselman or many more. Solve more .NET problems than you know you have...
  • Blog Post: ASP.NET and Community Technology Previews (CTPs)

    I know there is a *lot* of confusion around the Community Technology Previews that have been coming out for Visual Studio 2005 . I know because I get a *lot* of email about them. Which build is good, what's in them, etc. That's the prime reason John "The Experience" and I created this page . However...
  • Blog Post: Team System prezzies

    In the spirit of the holidays (either late in the case of Hanukkah, Ramadan or Solstice — or early in the case of Christmas or Kwanzaa — and I have no clue what holiday Jedis celebrate around now) the Team System team have brought unto you a gift. A new Community Technology Preview . So, now you will...
  • Blog Post: Still time for one more headache in 2004

    I know I've promised to be good, and I've sucked the life out of any possible controversial topic off of this blog. So, to finish up the year, it's time to get myself in trouble again. The MSDN stats report came out for November, and I noticed a few tasty tidbits in there: Approximately 48% of people...
  • Blog Post: Internet Explorer Developer Center

    And then there were 50... OK, maybe there aren't 50 Developer Centers (yet — it just feels that way some days), but there is now an Internet Explorer Dev Center. With new content, even! Learn what SP2 and future advances have in store for you. It's worth saving the link, even if all you need to do is...
  • 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: ClickOnce from the RDs

    Sorry, this actually went live on the 1st, but I'm a little behind. The latest article from the Microsoft Regional Directors (in this case Mauro Sant'Anna of Brazil) has been posted: Deploying Windows Forms Applications with ClickOnce
  • Blog Post: NOAA Way -- the Web Service

    Looking at my news items this morning, and what do I see? NOAA (the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency, aka, the Weather Guys) now has a Web Service available (sadly RPC/Encoded) to get the weather. Details here . WSDL here . Party on your desktop.
  • Blog Post: When their customers speak, the Web Platform and Tools Team listens

    You may recall a while back when some changes got announced around possible changes to the special directories for ASP.NET 2.0. Many, many people wrote in to comment on those changes. So, I'm now pleased to point to Brian Goldfarb's posting , and a page outlining the changes (highlights mine): Today...
  • Blog Post: Got issues? Track them

    May be old news, but did you know there was an Issue Tracker Starter Kit for ASP.NET 1.x? The Issue Tracker enables project teams to keep track of outstanding issues, assigned owners, history and related issues through a Web-based interface.
  • Blog Post: Use Cache, Save Cash

    Where's Rob been? Busy starting a company and building a Community Server . However, he still cares about all of you enough to keep writing his column - read his latest, " Use Cache, Save Cash " about SQL cache invalidation in ASP.NET 1.1 and 2.0.
  • Blog Post: Script Center

    Billie Jo over on "the TechNet side" has a great posting on Technet's Script Center that I have to be ashamed to admit was unknown to me up until a few weeks ago. The Script Center Repository is my personal favorite. (<-oh, look, I spelled it 'merican this time) Which leads to my latest question that...
  • Blog Post: How bread (and ASP.NET 2.0) is made

    Scott Guthrie has an amazing look into the 'end game' of how software gets released from Microsoft. It also has the cleanest explanation of "tell" and "ask" mode I've ever read (never had the guts to ask anyone).
  • Blog Post: Which way is the big ship going?

    One set of questions we get a lot are around the plans behind Visual Studio 2005. It's often difficult for people to find the information from those who know . We've now (hopefully) made it easier for you to find out with a new page highlighting the Developer Division Leadership team . Read blog posts...
  • Blog Post: Go on a Safari hunt in Whidbey

    No, of course this isn't a discussion of the wildlife in Whidbey . Instead, this is about O'Reilly's incredibly excellent Safari Bookshelf. If you're not familiar with Safari, it's a site you can get access to the full text of books from over 2000 books from publishers such as O'Reilly, New Riders, SAMS...
  • Blog Post: Buying Visual Studio

    We've launched a new section on MSDN today - " How to Buy ". Possibly not a major need for all of you, but I think it's a great improvement over the previous random pages people had to meander over, credit card in hand, desperately trying to find a link to let them spend their hard earned cash on Visual...
  • Blog Post: How to catch a Roadrunner.

    The scene: Cafe 36 Dramatis personae: D , B and K I can't remember how the discussion turned to the greatest mind that ever came out of the Southwestern US desert, but it was D that began the rant, "You know how the coyote would strap on rocket skates, and he'd almost catch the Road Runner? Then a train...
  • Blog Post: Take Action on ASP.NET Vulnerability

    We have become aware of a vulnerability in ASP.NET (all versions) that could allow a Web site visitor to access secured content by using a specially crafted request to the server. Note that this does not affect IIS, only ASP.NET. See this page or this KB article for details on the vulnerability, and...
