The time for Sleet Geek is getting close. If you are coming along, please let me know.
This is basically a reminder post, but you might find it useful.
In the development I have been doing in the last few months, I have been doing a lot of config based assembly loading. Trying to find out why an assembly doesn't load can be very difficult though. Check out Suzanne Cook's post about fuslogvw.exe.
NDoc has been a valuable tool for many years. Unfortunately, like many 3rd party free software projects, it is hard to publish version after version for a market that has time to use it, but a developer that doesn't have time to develop it (I feel your pain Kevin!). As much as I would like to see NDoc mature to the 2.0 framework, it looks like Microsoft are finally going to roll their own project. Read about SandCastle here and here. It should be released as a CTP soon.
Thanks to Dwight... [More]
If you are going to Sleet Geek this year, then I hope you have your accommodation sorted out. If you don't, read my post over in the forum. Most places are charging between $120-$450 for a night in Jindabyne. The place I have got is $50 and includes dinner and breakfast. There are about 10 beds left. Get in quick!
I have been working on a fun project recently. I have put together a VirtualThemeProvider that uses the VirtualPathProvider in the 2.0 framework.
The VirtualThemeProvider provides functionality for flexible ASP.Net theme support. It provides the ability to merge theme directories with a global theme directory and theme directory filtering.
Full source is provided with this project. I would like to get any feedback, comments and suggestions that you have for this project. If you ... [More]
I had a fairly pressured two weeks preparing for my graduation and I was really happy with how I performed. Glav's efforts certainly put things into perspective though. Congratulations Glav That's a lot of work.
I wonder what I was supposed to see.
I have been reading up on naming standards today. It has been quite a while since I challenged by naming convention habits.
This has all come about because I was using GhostDoc today to quickly put in the bulk of comments in an assembly for me to then go through and tweak.What I found was that GhostDoc didn't like some of my parameter naming. This was the catalyst for my reading about naming standards after thinking about naming standards for quite a while.
I read Microsoft's naming guidelines... [More]
Looks like Dave got married on the weekend. Boy he kept quiet about that one. Congratulations mate.
I have recently fixed up some code from another developer. There were a few things in the code that I got a little chuckle about. The weird thing is that I have seen these coding behaviors in a few jobs that I have had.
First one that I have to laugh about (to avoid crying) is when developers comment out code blocks, then put a modified version of that code block below the commented version. Maybe this isn't a bad idea, but seriously, if you are using a source control system then what i... [More]
