  • Blog Post: DirectSound Metronome

    My former intern Albert has finished his metronome project that uses DirectSound and talks about some of the issues he hit on his MSN Space -- The Groove Yard . It Works! Creating streaming, live audio is sorta easy! This opens the doors for all kinds of projects…(audio synth? Audio sampler?).
  • Blog Post: Outlook Web Access Development Openings

    I finally found a moment to breathe last week and come up with some text for a job posting for position in our group. We're looking for talented developers who have experience with ASP.NET. If you are or know someone who someone who might fit the bill, get in touch. We have several positions for both...
  • Blog Post: RE: InvariantCulture and DateTime.ToString()

    Hey Omar, regarding this entry ... Your comments are closed so I thought I'd let the trackback do the talking. I just wanted to say I have been bitten by this kind of thing before as well. This would work too. get { return DateUtc.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd", CultureInfo.InvariantCulture) + ".dayfeedback.xml...
  • Blog Post: Looking for .NET Forum Control

    I think thinking about incorporating forums into my pickup sports sites - InfiniteHoops.com and InfiniteSoccer.com - and although I am tempted to write my own forum code, the fact is I have so little time and this is something I think there are several implementations in .NET already. Anybody using a...
  • Blog Post: Scrollable Resizable Datagrid

    The Code Project has a project by Pedro Maia Costa based on an HTC we put out for a Web Team Talking article a couple years ago. NIce job, Pedro. For me one of the great benefits of writing on the web in a developer community like blogs.msdn.com is that you often get good feedback from developers running...
  • Blog Post: Win32 API Equivalents in .NET

    This is from January, but it's making the rounds again. Here's a listing of .NET Framework equivalents of the Win32 API. Highly useful to some. Historically interesting as well. http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dndotnet/html/win32map.asp
  • Blog Post: Blog Paging via T-SQL Stored Proc

    It's around two a.m. on a Sunday morning. I am finishing off a bowl of Frankenberry after completing some work to incorporate paging into my photoblog site. At first I thought I'd handle the paging at the application level and just do a simple query and find the row range that I need, but ultimately...
  • Blog Post: A Few Interesting System.Drawing Posts

    Here are a few posts on some fun stuff in System.Drawing that I found interesting. The first is a follow up to Omar Shahine's earlier post on a perf tip loading an Image from a Stream. The second I forgot to flag for follow up, but RSS Bandit has a nice local search which found it right away. Handy....
  • Blog Post: XP SP2 and .NET 1.1 SP1

    With all the articles and blog entries about these two recent service packs I was wondering if I would see anything interesting when I installed them on my laptop and home web server. The answer is no. Everything just works. My sites continue to chug along and my apps are just fine. I guess that doesn...
  • Blog Post: HtmlEncode(string, TextWriter)

    A friend pointed out the overload of HttpUtility.HtmlEncode today that I hadn't played with yet. No doubt every ASP developer has played with the version that takes in a string and returns the Html encoded string. This one will take a string and output the Html encoded text to a TextWriter, in many cases...
  • Blog Post: More Fun with Images (or System.Drawing Redux)

    It’s high time I wrote another little piece on what I have been programming in my spare time. I mentioned before that I have been playing with digital photos, extracting EXIF dates with Omar’s photo library (very handy) and posting them to the web for friends and family. Well, Pavel Lebedinsky...
  • Blog Post: Image APIs

    I have the opportunity to take lots and lots of pictures these days and share them with family and friends. You can guess why, but I am reluctant to be as open with my private life as say KC and David . Anyhow I decided to create a photoblog for our relatives to keep up to date and allow uploading and...
  • Blog Post: Strongly Typed Resources in Whidbey

    This is pretty handy. Can't wait. Kit George has some vb demo code as well.
  • Blog Post: Exchange Team Blog, Dave Winer and a pubDate

    Well, this morning the Exchange team blog was announced on KC's feed , which is fantastic. Hopefully, I can send a few OWA tips that way. I guess we will have to wait and see. This afternoon I attended a talk by Dave Winer at MS. It was my first time seeing Dave in person after having read DaveNet...
  • Blog Post: Embedding Scripts as Resources in Whidbey

    Whidbey has a method of embedding scripts, images, css, htc, etc. as resources in your code-behind assembly. Nice solution to the problem of versioning script files. Also, makes deployment easier. If you're curious, here's an article about it. http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library...
  • Blog Post: InfiniteHoops.com Milestone 100

    My little .NET project InfiniteHoops.com for finding and scheduling basketball games reached 100 registered players on Saturday, I am pleased to say. Development in recent weeks has been mostly in the area of UI and ease of use improvements. I have also started my link exchange campaign starting with...
  • Blog Post: Don't Leave, Frans

    So yesterday Frans Bouma posted his concern about weblogs.asp.net becoming less of a .NET community site and instead a pulpit for MS employees (as a result of all the GotDotNet bloggers moving here) and wondered if it's still appopriate to criticize Microsoft from this domain.  He admitted that he's...
  • Blog Post: InfiniteHoops.com -- the first month

    My .NET authored site for pickup basketball has been up for just over five weeks now.  I have signed up 76 users and this number seems to have really plateau'd out.  I have added such features as RSS feed of the NBA news that I find interesting (which no one uses -- seriously), RSS on the individual...
  • Blog Post: Monitoring ASP.NET Applications

    MSDN TV has a nice episode with Erik Olson talking about various perfmon counters you can use to monitor the health of your ASP.NET site.
  • Blog Post: InfiniteHoops.com -- the first week

    My pick-up games and all things basketball web site - InfiniteHoops.com - has been up for just over a week now and I thought I would give a quick report on it.  In seven days time, I had signed up 55 unique logins or “players”, which I think is not too bad, but the majority of those people...
  • Blog Post: InfiniteHoops.com

    Today I announce my .NET authored site InfiniteHoops.com , which is a kind of sports scheduling engine.  It took a while to get all the pieces together to host this thing myself.  Pulled together new hardware, new code, domain, dns.  Now there's a Dell PowerEdge in my library running Windows Server 2003...
  • Blog Post: Class to convert HTML into XML -- SgmlReader

    Handy. A class to convert HTML into XML. It's old, but news to me.
  • Blog Post: Creating a new web project at the root of your web server

    Q. How do I create a new project at the root of my websever? A. In the New Project dialog, you should not choose the “ASP.NET Web Application“ template, but rather the “New Project In Existing Folder“ template and give it some name (this is used to name your solution file)...
  • Blog Post: Referrers page

    The referrers page is really interesting, especially the URLs coming in from Google or Yahoo.  A while back, I wrote an entry on some trouble I was having setting up ASP.NET 1.1 on XP and the aspnet_regiis -i solution, and I am getting lots of hits for it.  11 today, 6 yesterday.  Cool to think that...
  • Blog Post: IWAM account is NOT granted the impersonate user right for ASP.NET 1.1 on a Win2K SP4

    Ran into a strange “Access is denied” problem running a web project on a Win2K domain controller that uses impersonation.  The exception was coming from somewhere outside of my code and early.  Application_BeginRequest would fire, but it threw before even Session_Start went off.  Luckily, I ran across...
