  • 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 ...

  • San Diego ASP.NET SIG - May 19th, 6pm

    I'll be at the San Diego ASP.NET SIG on May 19th doing my LINQ in the Real World discussion.  For anyone that has been at my previous "presentations", you'll know that I prefer to have more of a discussion surrounding the topic than a lecture.  So if you're in the area and would like to help spark conversation, feel ...

  • Fort Worth .NET Users Group - January 20th

    If you're in the area, don't miss my presentation: What's New in .NET 3.5 Service Pack 1.

  • Adventures in Windows Vista (x64) - Part 2

  • Adventures in Windows Vista (x64) - Part 1

    I installed Windows Vista Ultimate (x64) last night and everything went pretty smoothly.  This, of course, is on the second machine I have on my desk so I can see what works (and doesn't) before making the full jump on the main machine.  Out Of The Box Experience After the installation and major Windows Update updates, the only ...

  • How NOT to do single assembly deployment.

    I applaud this guys enthusiasm, however, his discovery/technique is something I would strongly urge you to avoid.  There are two major reasons for this:Doesn't work as a "regular user".Will cause you MAJOR support issues as Windows Vista gains momentum.  See reason #1.I've been using a similar technique in ...

  • Comparing Apples To Apples (Revisited)

    Like I stated, don't trust someone elses benchmarks. ;-) Don't get me wrong, in my testing, VB still seems to be a hair faster; but now only by a very slim margin (less than 400ms across all tests).  Please keep in mind that I did not come up with this suite of tests; rather just doing my part to validate the results (since they ...

  • Comparing Apples To Apples (The Myth Of Benchmarks)

    I so love benchmarks.  There supposed to give us an idea, albiet rough sometimes, about the differences in choosing one thing over another.  By looking at the comparitive numbers, we should be able to make an intelligent decision regarding raw performance.  However, sometimes the tests are a bit skewed.  Case in point, I came ...

  • C# to VB Conversion/Translation

    (OK, since I lost this post due to other circumstances... here it goes again. - Here's your chance to answer it again.) I can't remember exactly what my questions were, so here goes... Have you used any of the C# to VB conversion utilities available (web-based, etc.)?  If so, what was your overall impression and success rate?  ...
