  • Where is the transparency, and no, Avalon this doesn't concern you

    Interesting discussion going on in the comments, although Brian Shapiro ends with: "i was also hoping for discussion in the posts i made but nobody has really touched them." Alas, I don't have an answer. I was also hoping for more of a discussion by people in positions to make things happen, but that...
  • Better Service

    Why are there 10 million instant messaging applications? MSN, Yahoo, AIM, Skype... Let me tell you, an instant message at its most basic form is a commodity. Trust me. There are special services layered on top, but at the base (the text) it's a commodity. So, if all of these operating system vendors...
  • The Smallest MSBuild Project

    The smallest MSBuild project, considering of course, the included assembly could be excluded: < Project > < Item Type ="Reference" Include ="$(lapi)\Microsoft. NET \Framework\v2.0.31113\System.MessageBus" Name ="System.MessageBus" /> < Item Type ="Compile" Include ="Client.cs" /> <...
  • Please Reconsider

    I am sorry for the post to follow because I try to keep a very high signal to noise ratio on this blog, although I thought that some words were needed, that I had not yet seen in the blogosphere.

  • Missing Indigo library in PDC Longhorn

    Currently, if you attempt to use Indigo, you may quickly run into an error, warning that a library is missing, usually once you get into the System.Net.PeerToPeer namespace. Well, yesterday in a “Developing Mobile Applications in Longhorn” webcast, Derek Ferguson mentioned the cause of the...
  • System.Help

    System.Help So, they have been hard at work creating a task-oriented help system that is extensible and easy to understand. I guess it now time that we stop using our own system and partake in the fruits provided. Some clarifications from above should probably be in order: Task-oriented – The new...
  • ObjectSpaces

    ObjectSpaces The ObjectSpace technology, coupled with basic XML querying will eradicate current methods for database manipulation as we know them. At least, that is how I feel. In both statements, the back-end database remains essentially the same. It is a column and row relational storage device. But...
  • ContactPickerDialog

    A semi interesting UI control is the ContactPickerDialog: Longhorn is slated to have many standard UI controls like this that represent social aspects, like Contacts. Anyway, programming against the ContactPickerDialog is straight forward. ContactPickerDialog picker = new ContactPickerDialog(); picker...
