Anders Hejlsberg on LINQ - beats Eastenders!
Anders Hejlsberg on LINQ and Functional Programming - Charlie Calvert has a chat with Anders on the above subject; he goes into loads of details about how LINQ came about and how they(he) solved the problem. I wasn't exactly enthrawled for 30mins but it's certainly better than watching Eastenders! I am really looking forward to LINQ; I do loads of database and XML programming so it should be great...I did install the May CTP but it really messed with my intellisense in VS so decided to uninstall! ......

Windows Vista - My thoughts so far.....
I have had Vista installed for about a month and although I haven’t specifically spent time to find out exactly what’s new I have developed likes and dislikes. I think somewhere on GWB I saw a post along the lines of “What’s all the fuss about?”, I don’t agree with that; from what I have seen at the Vista Developer launch and .net 3 the world of development is getting better in the Vista era! Especially from a UI perspective. So anyway my likes and dislikes (please post yours; I would like to see ......

Cascading Drop Down RTM - Sys.Debug is null or not an object

Just a quick one!

I have just updated to the newly released AJAX framework and Control Toolkit to match and had this little error started popping up using the CCDD; after some head scratching the solution was simple.....Reboot IIS!!!

Detecting ASP.NET Debug mode
Found this post earlier and well worth sharing; I have wanted to know how to do this for sometime. I have googled, searched books etc but never come up with the answer. Fortunately there are smarter and more experienced people out there than me and Rick Strahl is one of them, if you don't subscribe to his blog I recommend it. He has posted some code on how to find out if the application is running in debug mode...turns out its pretty simple and if I had spent sometime with intellisense (the best ......

Out with Onfolio, in with Reader
I have been using Onfolio blog reader since I installed MSN Live toolbar sometime ago; its nothing special but does the job. The biggest problem for me is that onfolio stores state offline so when I read a blog at work (during lunch of course!) it gets marked as read but then when I go home I have to mark it as read again....bit of a pain but at the time I had a look at Google reader and didn't like it so stuck it out with Onfolio. Recently I installed Vista and Office 2007 and to my surprise lots ......

ASP.NET AJAX Cheat Sheets
Found these "Cheat Sheets" a while ago and have found them pretty useful so thought I'd better post them. They are for some of the Javascript base type extensions: Array, Boolean, Date, Error, Number, Object, and String Resources are planning to release more - definitly worth subscribing to the feed at aspnetresources if you are interested in this sort of thing!! Print out nicely onto A4; they'll be on my desk for a few months to come! Click Image to download ......

Logitech DiNovo Laser - Bluetooth
So, for Christmas I got this great desktop set from Logitech. The most expensive desktop set on the market. Yet that seems to count for nothing as I have now sent this back; the keyboard was fine and I really miss the "laptop type" keys but the mouse had such a huge lag it was almost un-usable just playing with Windows, playing games was a complete waste of time. Now, I am running Vista and the software doesn't support Vista; I did force the install but continued to get error from the bluetooth connection ......
