TcpTrace 0.7.3

"I just posted v0.7.3 of TcpTrace." [Simon Fell] Sweet!

Virtual PC

I downloaded Windows .NET Server RC2 earlier this week. I had RC1 running on my laptop (well, my only machine, really) dual booting with my main OS (WinXP). Because of that, I wasn't really using it much. There's been some talk about running RC2 on VMWare, so I decided to...

TcpTrace 0.7.2

Simon Fell just released version 0.7.2 of his TcpTrace tool. This is one of my favourite all around tools, not just for WebService debugging, but for all kind of network and browser related issues, as well :) I have one small suggestion, which I hope you don't mind, Simon: It...

It's a girl!

Sam and Susan are having a girl! That is so good to hear! Congratulations! I hope Susan's feeling better now....

Exchange 2000

Exchange Server 2000 rocks [DotNetCentric]. Exchange? groan. Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of exchange and what it does, but the implementation sucks big time.

Managed Pointers

While researching a problem someone was having in the newsgroups this weekend, I ran into section 1.1.4.2 of the CIL spec (Partition III), which covers managed pointers. While I understand what this section talks about, some questions did come up which I'm not sure about: What would managed pointers pointing...

Of this and that...

Miscellaneous bits here and there. I started reading through Martin Fowler's new book yesterday, and imagine my surprise to find my name listed on the book's preface. Sure, I had written a couple of comments to the author back when he had his ISA pages up (nothing big, really), but...

Yey Gift!

Yesterday, a few of my coworkers got together to give me a present: A copy of Martin Fowler's most recent book "Patterns of Enterprise Application Integration". What a great present! This one was at the top of my to-buy list! Thank you so much to Yenny, Manuel, Gabriel, Hugo and...
