    "Edit and Continue" and programmers who work for a living.

    • 2 Comments
    Rory Blyth pointed me to DonXML's recent post on edit and continue functionality encouraging poor programming practices.   It's an interesting post for discussion, but I don't agree.   For many VB guys, edit and continue is a feature on par in usefulness...

    Moving a VB6 dude to .NET

    • 10 Comments
    All right all you VB guys, I am looking for advice on how to move a friend of mine off of VB 6 to VB.NET.  His biggest complaint is no edit and continue functionality.  Without this he says he might as well learn C# or worse just stay on 6.  I would appreciate...

    FormsAuthenticationTicket and Persistence

    • 11 Comments
    I have been playing around with putting forms based authentication on a site I am building.  I would like to store a piece of information in the authentication ticket and persist that cookie on the client between sessions.  So naturally, I searched around...

    Scoble on the browser as an application platform

    • 2 Comments
    Scoble blogs again about the browser not being an application platform and in the same entry plugs "Outlook Web Application".  Man, it's Outlook Web Access, not Application!  But that's ok...  I wonder if Bezos thinks the browser isn't a very good...

    Even software guys like hardware

    Broke though one of my porch steps yesterday and we decided that the other boards felt a little soft so we headed down to Home Depot for two 10 foot 2x6 boards (Redwood, nice) and some wood screws.  It was sweet.  Sawed the boards by hand under a tree...

    Midnight Coder

    • 0 Comments
    So I don't really get going on home .NET projects until after midnight.  Maybe it's the same for some of you.  Anyhow, VS is fired up ready to go, but it's not quite midnight so there's time for an entry.  Spent last night in System.Web.Mail.  Had to...

    Last Five Fiction

    • 1 Comments
    In the spirit of Porcaro 's nightstand (his permalink is messed up - too bad), here's my last five fiction books.  On a .NET weblog does one really have to admit he's a freakin' nerd?  I guess not. About a Boy , Nick Hornby Signal to Noise , Eric Nylund...

    Where's Eric?

    • 0 Comments
    One of Microsoft's VPs Eric Rudder started a blog a while ago, but he hasn't kept it up.  I must be difficult to keep a blog at his level when his thoughts are bound to attract more attention than a lowly peon like myself.  I wonder how a guy like Ozzie...

    The Userland Story

    • 0 Comments
    I would love to read the story of Userland software.  Yes, Dave's basically written it already, but there's something to be said for reading on pulp media versus an LCD or CRT.

    Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey.SetValue() and large values

    • 3 Comments
    On Friday my intern ran into the problem setting a registry DWORD to a large value - a value larger than 2,147,483,647.  The value gets set as a string and not a DWORD even though the DWORD should have UINT's range from 0 to 4,294,967,295.  This is the...

    ASP.NET 1.1 on XP

    • 65 Comments
    The other day I decided it was time to rebuild my laptop.  It must have been something about the way the disk defragger bluescreened my system everytime I ran it.  I like rebuilding my machines every once in a while.  I feel like it's a kind of rebirth...

    How I came to Microsoft

    • 11 Comments
    I have asked Microsoft bloggers to tell the story of how they came to work at Microsoft, what attracted them to the company and what was the series of events that led them here.  Here is my story. In 1996, I was a physics major about to graduate. ...

    Wiring the House

    • 6 Comments
    So, tonight I started working on running Ethernet throughout the house.  I wanted a cable hard-wired to the XBOX as my 2.4 GHz cordless phone disrupts my wireless network.  I have to admit that working with power tools and crawling around under the house...
