Advanced .NET Remoting

My copy of Ingo's Advanced .NET Remoting finally got here! Whoohoo!

CollectionGen

Chris Sells has posted a very cool Custom Tool AddIn for VS.NET that generates type-safe collections classes called CollectionGen. Be sure to get it!

SWExpert

While browsing around today I found out that one of the best computer-related magazines I've ever read is not longer being published. The magazine was Server/Workstation Expert (formerly known as SunExpert Magazine). It's a crying shame, really, cause it had, imho, wonderful writers! So, if you feel like doing some...

Sam's musings on SciFi books

Sam's musings on SciFi books made me think again about my all-time favorite SciFi books of all times. My personal favorites would be, after some hard choices, the entire Dune Saga (Frank Herbert) and Isaac Asimov's The End of Eternity. Among shorter SciFi stories, one I particularly liked (although I'm...

New CDs

This afternoon I went looking around our local Tower Records store and came out with two new CDs for my music collection. This time the turn was for Amorphis - Tuonela and for My Dying Bride - Like Gods of the Sun. </p>

VC++.NET and Unmanaged Debugging

John Lam recently commented that the managed debugger on VC++.NET cannot evaluate pointers on managed code. He's right on the money, of course, and I just ran into this limitation a couple of days ago. His idea of using #pragma unmananged directives to ensure the relevant code is compiled as...

Managed WSSPI

I've got most of the basic WSSPI managed wrapper already built, and I'm adding a few NUnit tests. <br/> The lousy part is that lost a good hour trying to find out why the managed wrapper didn't work, while the unmanaged code did, only to find out that it was...

It seems Ingo liked my Idea...

It seems Ingo liked my idea about writing a secured TCP channel and has offered to help out. That's pretty cool, as he really knows remoting. I've decided to start out by writing an MC++ wrapper around WSSPI that exposes the authentication facilities so that we can then build the...

Secured TCP Remoting

After some discussions on Developmentor's DOTNET list, regarding the use of Windows Authentication in .NET remoting, I figured it should be possible to build a replacement TCP remoting channel that used the SSPI API during the connection phase to accomplish this. So, this is one of the things I'd like...

Regarding ECMA-234

Regarding ECMA-234, Richard Birkby was kind enough to mention this:<br/> "IIRC, this was an attempt by Sun and others to prevent Windows 95 (and hence Win32) becoming popular. You see, they had created WABI (Windows Application Binary Interface) for emulating the Windows API on Unix (think WINE). But, it only...
