  • Blog Post: Setting X-UA-Compatible with ASP.NET Pages

    I got an email today asking about the best way to go about adding the X-UA-Compatible tags on ASP.NET pages where you’ve got a master page, and may want to over ride the X-UA-Compatible tag in some content pages, but not others. After playing around with it in Visual Studio for a few minutes, I pulled...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Presentations in PDF & Source for VS2008 Demo

    Yep, the internet is on! I think most of the comments I got yesterday all revolved around the fact that I posted all my presentations in PPTX format. I work for Microsoft, and well, I use PowerPoint to create my presentations. I figured most people, even if they didn't have PowerPoint on their machines...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Search Engine Optimization For Rich Internet Applications

    I think that this was my favorite session I did while doing all my ReMIX presentations. It was the one I found most interesting, and most relevant to the work that I do, and see many web developers and designers doing every day. I'm not sure if there is video for this session, but if it shows up, I'll...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Building Your Own Video Site

    In Amsterdam and Zurich, I presented a session called Building Your Own Video Site. It was pretty cool, but sadly, the one hour we had to do the session, there was no real way to build the application up from scratch, so we just used a pre-built sample, and added some new UI and features to it. The site...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Using Visual Studio 2008, codenamed Orcas

    I presented this session both in Amsterdam and in Zürich, though I managed to lose my notes in Zürich and had do to a number of the demo's by the seat of my pants which was a bit of a challenge. In any event, it was based on a session by Omar Khan of the VWD team that he presented at MIX07, called "...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Implementing Rich UI For Web Applications

    In Amsterdam at ReMIX, I presented "Implementing Rich UI for Web Applications" where I showed how to deliver richly interactive web experiences with animation, video and more using Silverlight and Expression. It was based on a session from MIX07 by Joe Stegman titled " Building Rich Web Experiences using...
  • Blog Post: Web Blunders: The Top 5 Biggest Mistakes On The Web

    At TechEd this year, I presented a session where I presented my top five pet peeves on the web, the biggest and easiest problems to avoid on the web. With how easy it is to share content on the web, I felt that these top five things were the best and easiest to get rid of. In order, I felt they were...

  • Blog Post: Generating OPML's with the RSS Platform

    Just before I headed up to Web Directions North, I wrote a little chunk of code to help me do a system back up. Enough people at work have been losing data on their hard disks, so I decided I wasn't going to have that happen to me. I picked up a NAS storage device, 2 500gig hard drives, and got it all...

  • Blog Post: Live From Redmond: Creating Real World Web Application UI with Master Pages, Themes and Site Navigation

    A few days ago, I presented a Live From Redmond: Creating Real World Web Application UI with Master Pages, Themes and Site Navigation in an on demand web cast. For my first presentation, it went pretty well. I had never used Live Meeting before, and had only had one Live Meeting "Goofup", where I forgot...
  • Blog Post: File Checksum

    I brought a neat idea to my lead earlier this week, and lo and behold, he started working on it! He got the hard part done one morning when he was in before everyone else, but now I get to implement this idea. With the new designer surface, I wanted to create a test bed that used a known set of HTML...
  • Blog Post: There's A Hard Way & An Easy Way: Getting/Reading HTTP Responses

    Yesterday, after somone asked on the forums how to do a web request in an application, I posted some code that I had written a while ago, and I got some great feedback on it. It solved a problem that I was working on, and did exactly what a few people have been asking for. As it turns out, that was...
  • Blog Post: Getting/Reading HTTP Responses

    There has been a semi-frequent request on forums and such for people who want to do an HTTP request from their application (either web or client) and get the response as a string back so that they can process it from there. I had some code that did something similar, so I figured I'd modify it and post...

  • Blog Post: Web Referral Tracking User Control

    In my efforts to continue building my personal web sites, I wanted to see where my visitors are coming from and how they are getting to my web site. Unfortunately, my ISP doesn't provide me with any kind of stats or access to the logs, so I'm kind of screwed there. So, I decided to take things into my...
  • Blog Post: RSS Aggregator User Control

    I think this is probably the last of the fun user controls that I created for my web sites, but this one was one of the more important ones for my http://www.nocommonground.com website. When I created NoCommonGround, I wanted a site that would take all the info that I wanted, and put it into one place...
  • Blog Post: "Contact Me" User Control

    Lately I've been doing some ad-hoc on VWD, creating a few web sites, and there seem to be two pretty common things I put on those web sites, a "Contact Me" page, and a links page. And seeing that there have been lots of changes to the email API's between ASP.NET 1.x to 2.0, I thought I'd post my code...
  • Blog Post: Web Site Syndication

    One of the things thats been on my mind for a while has been to update my web site, and make it a central point of syndication. I've got several different websites that I am contantly updating but they're all running different application, and all with different purposes, but there is no central location...
