    You Couldn't Before, But Now Yukon...

    Blog Log Analysis

    • 3 Comments
    I've been keeping a blog for about two months now, and I thought it would be an interesting exercise to do some analysis of the logs. The blogging application that this site uses ( BlogX ) records the daily hits each blog gets into a tab-delimited...

    Debugging DataSets

    • 2 Comments
    When you're debugging code with Visual Studio .NET, it's really hard to see what data is currently contained within a DataSet. Sure, the Locals window will show any DataSet objects currently in scope, but finding out what data is contained within them...

    I gave a session on Yukon at the VBUG conference yesterday - they're some of the friendliest developers I know, and it's always a pleasure to work with them. User groups like this go a long way towards building community; at the drinks reception, I...

    Snippet Compiler

    • 1 Comments
    I regularly find myself opening Visual Studio .NET and creating a whole solution / project structure purely in order to test or demonstrate a couple of lines of code. Don't get me wrong - Visual Studio .NET is great, but it's overblown for doing this...

    Just noticed that Microsoft Press have recently published a new book by Simon Guest on interoperability between .NET and J2EE . I've not seen it yet, but a book like this is desperately needed. I'm regularly asked about this and even if the question...

    A Strike Back Against Telemarketers

    • 0 Comments
    I liked this item on Slashdot . The United States (like the UK ) has a "do not call list". But the telemarketing firms don't like the idea, and have called these lists "unconstitutional". So the Miami humour columnist Dave Barry encouraged his...

    Some time ago I wrote a tool called Snippet Manager which manages all those little bits of code that I find myself needing repeatedly, such as the Dispose pattern. (Of course, you can drag snippets to the toolbox in VS.NET, but I wanted something...
