To all .TEXT users... How to see referrers filtering out search engines.

Using the Statistics | Referrers in .TEXT is pretty good; however, if most of you receive a lot of traffic from search engines, it's hard to see what other community sites are actually linking to you. I've been playing around with an SQL statement that

I have to 100% agree with Erik Porter ... he does make a lot of mistakes :-D OK, seriously, I do agree with him. I would hope that someone reading my blog would be able to see a reflection of the type of person that I am... one that is constantly trying

CodeSmith - Strongly-typed ArrayList collection for VB.NET

I've completed the conversion for the ArrayList.cst and IList.cst C# source files distributed with CodeSmith to VB.NET (all 2752 lines of it ;-) ). Assuming I don't have any conversion bugs left it in (I've done some testing and it's working great for

I noticed that Jason posted up some code that we were discussion regarding some weirdness in some code I was converting from C# to VB.NET. For the specifics of the problem, check out his blog. After the fact, Paul Vick confirmed that it was indeed a bug

Adventures in CodeSmith...

I forgot to mention on the list that I'm also working on converting some of the CodeSmith templates for generating strongly-typed ArrayList collections from C# to VB.NET. After some further adventures in the land of FxCop, I noticed that some of the conversion

I've been blog robbed... I feel so violated...

Someone just came to my blog, I'm guessing using Google, to search for how to do something . Posted feedback asking for some assistance and within a 30 minute period posted more feedback saying he figured it out. Even thanked me... However, following

Thanks to all of those that have responded. I really appreciate the offers and it looks like XboxFriends.com will have a new home after all. Not ready to say where just yet, but once the move is completed and the new version of Xbox Friends Thing is ready,

VisualFavorites - A teaser screen capture.

The main menu and toolbars aren't completed just yet (more of a placeholder), worked on getting the general layout (which is all resizable) complete. Also got all the folder editing (new, rename, delete) via context menu and now include drag 'n drop folder

New VB.NET sample application coming soon...

I'm now working on a utilitarian type application that will allow you to manage your Internet Explorer favorites in a much better way. Well, at least in a way that I find 'better'. ;-) I've been toying with this idea for a while and now it's begun. Since

Duncan Mackenzie is just being downright cruel...

forcing people to choose between Halo 2 and Visual Studio 2005 in his new polling feature on duncanmackenzie.net ! Oh yeah, Longhorn and SQL Server 2005 are also on the list ;-) I'll give you a hint of what to vote for... Halo 2 is being released November

Hey... you haven't been doing a whole lot of VB.NET stuff lately...

This is a comment I received from someone in passing last week. Looking around, I have to agree with them :-( Not trying to make excuses, but I can say that my spare time lately has been very sparse with several projects. But, now that I've been made

Xbox Friends Thing - Needs a new home...
