NAnt CVS Tasks

While commenting on an entry in Brad's blog, I said that I'd be interested in working on the CVS tasks for NAnt. Problem is, I don't really have much free time to do so, nor am I a CVS expert, and I've already got my hands full working on midl...

ASP.NET WebMatrix

As most of you already know by now, the ASP.NET WebMatrix (formerly known as Saturn) technology preview was released a couple days ago. I downloaded it today and I must say I'm quite impressed by it! It's small, it's very fast, and seems to have some pretty cool features. As...

More on XSLT Extension Objects

Drew: Regarding ResetableIterator, I'd certainly call it a flaw. It kind of defeats the purpose of having those nice abstract classes and interfaces in the first place.

XSLT Extensions

Mailing Lists

Peter: "The number of mailing lists I'm on is getting completely out of hand... ". I second that. I'm already subscribed to 7 mailing lists or so, plus a fairly large set of newsgroups. It gets awfully hard sometimes to handle it all... </p> P.S.: I've been missing the dotnet...

RSS Feed

I've noticed quite a few people are still subscribed to the RSS feed Peter generates from scraping my site. I totally appreciate Peter's effort in doing so, but since I now generate my own RSS feeds (both in RSS 0.91 and RDF format), it would probably be a good idea...

Corrupted

The SOFTWARE registry hive on my Windows XP machine just went kapputt..... again. This is the second time it happens in less than two months. I'm so going to enjoy reinstalling eveything from scratch.... ohh, well... At least tomorrow's a holiday here. </p>
