WSCF 0.4

Christian Weyer just announced the release of WSCF 0.4. This is very exciting for me, not only because of the new features it brings to the table (the WSDL wizard rocks!), but also because I was lucky enough to be allowed to try early copies of the tool, and immediately...

Diablo and Indigo

While searching for a few things this morning, I ran into an older post from Christian, pondering whether Indigo was supposed to be the next version of COM+ or not. This, of course, has been discussed quite a bit in posts from others like Don [2] and Richard. What did...

Unit Testing ASP.NET Code

Scott Hanselman has a great entry on unit testing ASP.NET code by using Cassini. Way cool Scott, this is definitely a cool trick to keep in mind! humm... I wonder how cool it would be to be able to just do it using Http.sys instead... </p>

FXCop

I hadn't looked at FXCop in a while, and decided to check it out again (in part because I'm setting up a new set of build tools for our project including things like CruiseControl.NET). Wow, FXCop has improved a lot since then. I do have a problem with it, though,...

Old Code Samples

While looking through some of my project directories today, found a few old samples I had written years ago. For the sake of it, decided to upload some of them to my dev section, although at this stage, I doubt anybody cares about it ;)

Tim Ewald's Musings

I totally love it that Tim Ewald now has the time to post more to his blog. I enjoy reading what he writes quite a lot. In particular, I love it how he approaches things I've been pondering on for a while and helps me clearly understand that I really...

BTS HTTP Request/Response and routing scenarios

Last week, while trying a few things at work with BizTalk server, we managed to get something up and running that I hadn't quite seen explicitly presented anywhere: using BTS as a router on an HTTP Request/Response escenario. <img src="/weblog/images/HttpRouter.gif"/> </p> Basically, it consisted of an Request/Response Receive Port hosting...

WS-SecureConversation and WebFarms

Chris Keyser just published an article on MSDN called "Managing Security Context Tokens in a Web Farm". Much needed information and one I'm personally very interested in. I do have to ask one thing... does anyone have any sort of metrics or whatever for when it might be useful to...

Cellular

Just saw the movie with my girlfriend this afternoon and actually enjoyed it quite a bit. Much better than I expected. While the movie does have a few flaws in the plot, it is quite entertaining and kept me on edge all throughout the film.
