Anakrino

Jeff Saurik [1] talks about Anakrino release 10 and it working with .NET v1.1. I can say it sure works with v1.1; that's not the problem, as I ran it for a long time on my WinXP box with both VS.NET 2002 and the Everett betas and RCs without a...

RSS feeds changes

I've updated my main RSS 2.0 feed to use XHTML+body instead of content:encoded. I've also added a new a RSS 2.0 feed for the last 20 comments on the weblog (this one doesn't use XHTML+body because I can't control whether reades post valid XHTML).

More on xs:any

Fumiaki Yoshimatsu points out on a comment to my xs:any post that skip seems to work on .NET 1.1. I just tried it, and indeed it works and shows no error. Lax still gives me an error, though, which I think should not, either. </p>

WS-Addressing

Justin complains that no one has commented or answered his comments on WS-Addressing. Since some of his comments are directly addressed to me, I think it's only fair to respond :) I've been looking into WS-Addressing, too, trying to understand the whole thing. I haven't quite contemplated all scenarios, but...

xs:any and Validation

Can anyone help me out by clarifying what the correct behavior should be for an XSD validator in the prescence of xs:any? Imagine I had the following schema: </p> <xs:schema targetNamespace="/schemas/valprb1" elementFormDefault="qualified" xmlns="/schemas/valprb1" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" > <xs:element name="value1" type="xs:string"/> <xs:any namespace="##any" processContents="skip" /> </xs:schema> </p> And the following XML: </p> whatever...

Old MC++ FAQ Feed

Some people seem to still be subscribed to my old RSS 0.91 feed for my MC++ FAQ, which was discontinued a long time ago since I moved it to RSS 2.0. For some reason, I had left lying the original xml file, which should be deleted now. Please update your...

SQL Issue Resolved!

I just managed to resolve the issue I was having with SQL Server 2000 on Windows Server 2003. Thanks go to Steve Kass (a fellow MVP), who refered me to KB Article 309398. The problem was that I had installed on my machine Certificate Server before installing SQL. Once I...

Linked from MS.COM

Found out from my referrer list that one of the pages in the Visual C++ MSDN site links to my MC++ FAQ. OK, no biggie, but I thought it was pretty cool :) </p>

SQL2K and WinServer 2003

I know it's possible to run SQL Server 2000 with Windows Server 2003, but you need a service pack. That's fine. But how the heck are you supposed to do it if SQL2K won't install so you can apply SP3 to it? I tried for a couple of hours yesterday...

Upgrading

I'm just coming back up again from upgrading my notebook (well, my only computer at home, really ) with Windows Server 2003. So far, I've got VS.NET 2002 & 2003 (but with no docs.... msdn too big for me to download!), office 2003 beta 2 and a bunch of other...
