  • Transition Physical Machine To Virtual

    I'm writing more so as a reminder to myself... What I am trying to do is transition an older machine, one that is "semi-retired" but still contains some stuff that I need every once and a while for work purposes and I'd rather not muck up my new installation with these tools. So enter virtualization ...

  • Cambridge, England, UK

    Next Monday, I'll be headed to the UK (Cambridge) for a "vacation".  As it turns out, this is also the home of Red Gate software, makers of SQL Toolbelt, ANTS Profiler and .NET Reflector. I'll be spending some time with them while there; so if you have any questions / comments you'd like me to pass along, feel free to ...

  • Why?

    Why aren't there any decent audio libraries for .NET?  Don't get me wrong, it's nice that the framework supports some audio features in a very simple way if you want to just play something.  However, if you need access to the audio data to manipulate it in whatever way or just want to know the duration, play location, audio ...

  • It's 2:12am and I'm done with a new VS2005 Macro hack

    I need to run it through it's paces, but I now have a VS2005 macro that will, whenever I successfully build a release mode project, package the project folder into a zip file named [ProjectName]_src_v[OutputAssemblyFileVersion].zip.  And it doesn't require anything additional to be installed on the machine.  And it's not ...

  • Hmmm... Open Source recognizes VB... but Xbox 360 doesn't?

    -- Begin Rant -- Now, I'm not sure what the “real” reason behind a decision (albiet a rumor, but I don't doubt it) of pulling the VB namespace from the modified Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 2.0 that is being done for the Xbox 360.  My first question, not even VB related, is why in the world would a company want to ...

  • Living in a Land of Obfuscation

    You know, I'm all for making some things available for free; but at the same time want to protect my “property” as much as possible.  With great tools such as Reflector being available; you really need to consider using obfuscation to at least make it a little more difficult to reverse engineer your code.  In addition, ...

  • And people say Microsoft isn't responsive...

    Less than a week ago I reported a, albiet probably pretty minor, problem with the latest release of SyncToy for Windows XP (v1.1).  I'm happy to report that SyncToy v1.2 for Windows XP has been made available that corrects the issues I raised! Some people might complain that almost a week is too long.  Understand that from the time that ...

  • I know it's FREE... but still!!!!!!

    I've been using a power toy from Microsoft called SyncToy v1.0 for Windows XP for some time now.  It works great for syncronizing various file types between multiple machines.  In one example I syncronize a projects folder across 5 machines (3 laptops and two pcs) so I can work on these projects on whichever machine I feel like doing so ...
