  • I love modernnote. I'm also loving the new Skype app

  • What really love is IIS8 and that I can have multiple sites with HTTPS binding for different host headers. That was my pain in IIS 7.5 and I had to use different ports. Now on Server 2012 and IIS8 all is working as it should.

    This is great for SignalR and other systems that can use WebSockets:

  • IIS8 have many good benefit like securuty, and speed. I try other type of IIS and can see the the IIS8 is the best choice with windows server 2012


  • Don't forget that if you're not a fan of WIndows 8, Windows 2012 also makes a good day to day workstation for our development needs. The team at have a great guide to tweaking Windows 2012 for this purpose.

  • I like Active Directory Recycle Bin feature.

    Active Directory Recycle Bin helps minimize directory service downtime by enhancing your ability to preserve and restore accidentally deleted Active Directory objects without restoring Active Directory data from backups, restarting Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), or rebooting domain controllers.

Here's the background again - this is a customisable card which lets me send specific links to different people - the text and video can be customised. It's hosted on Azure Websites and written using Visual Studio 2012, ASP.NET MVC 4, Twitter Bootstrap and jQuery. I'm hoping to use it every year and improve on it each time. Being seasonal it's a good one for Azure hosting.
