Along with Microsoft's recently introduced Windows Live Events, a few minor updates were made to Windows Live SkyDrive as well. The new features are an increase in the online storage space from 500MB to 1GB. In addition to more storage space, all public folders now have an RSS feed. To subscribe to a folders RSS feed, go to the public folder you're interested in and click the icon at the top right of the page. The SkyDrive team has also made it easier to share folders with people that aren't in your ...
Some of you may or may not have heard of Steve Porter. Steve is becoming one of the foremost experts in VSTS here in Canada, and has already helped many organizations learn how to implement and utilize VSTS efficiently. In case some of you are VSTS junkies, I wanted to recommend his blog to be added to your RSS feeds. Now, don't let the URL scare you...yes, he's passionate about his new Macbook Pro but he's not one of "those" Mac-heads. http://homepage.mac.com/ste... D ...

I've collected quite a few frequently updated blogs all about XNA in that last year or so here. I use Netvibes as my homepage so I keep track of all of my rss feeds through that. So if anybody else in the XNA community uses Netvibes, here's a tab full of blogs : http://www.netvibes.com/sub... ...
Yesterday we met for again on .NET Geeks Lunch in Kraków. I'm happy to report that this time we had doubled the number of participants (9 people showed up) and welcomed some new faces. So in order to break the ice we had prepared a super-short presentation (just enough to fit the time between ordering the meal and bringing it to the table). The topic was on methods and tools to support our learning process. Bartek demonstrated how he uses some cool features of Microsoft OneNote for taking notes. ...
Last week I've been looking for a better RSS Reader (err... Aggregator). You see after certain number of feeds MS Outlook no longer works for me and I needed a better alternative. In my search I came a cross a product called RikReader and decided to give it a try. Why? I've read some good opinions about it, it's free, it uses Windows RSS Platform, and is close to my heart because it is done entirely in WPF. I promptly downloaded and installed the package. But instead of the expected welcome screen ...
My RSS reader is filled with tons of Apple news which could easily be summed up. Ringtone robbery, more Shuffles, fat Nano, still just an iPod, iPhone - phone - storage space, FU early adopters, and iTunes everywhere. Oh yeah, and Zune, I'm still over here ...

I think these definitions are great for Blogs and Wikis. Blogs are mostly (but not exclusively) about the author. Blogs are a form of communication - the "voice" of the people posting entries. Wikis are about a shared space and are mostly (but not exclusively) about the content (the people are more on the periphery, content has the center stage). Overlaps are inevitable and there are gray areas (e.g., blogs that are embedded within applications). Blogs are more about communication and are author-centric. ...
Courtesy of the VMBlogs... If you think there is something that Eric has missed then drop him a line? Great new site from Eric Sloof (soon to be appearing on the right-hand blogroll as soon as I get a moment), vm4all.com. The tagline is "The VMware Tools Repository," and it lists both freeware and commercial utilities you can use with VMware Infrastructure. It has an RSS feed so you can keep up with changes and additions. There are 38 entries so far, with the latest being freeware from Massimiliano ...

Download here Overview The Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 SDK is designed for solution providers, independent software vendors, value-added resellers, and other developers to learn about the new Office SharePoint Server 2007 enterprise application and platform. It features conceptual and "How to" articles, sample code, and programming references.What’s New in this Release for the MOSS SDK ...
I don't regularly use desktop or web-based RSS feed aggregators for the fact that they take the content away from its context. It usually doesn't add much, but sometimes I can gauge things like professionalism and creativity of the writer (such as is the case with Scott Hanselman's blog--it's snappy layout reinforces its content). Besides, tech blogs usually come through with code samples all screwy, images out of whack, and a variety of other distortions. What I do enjoy about them, however, is ...
I've blogged about Snap Shots in the past and think it's an excellent addition to any website. Now, you can have the power of Snap Shots on any website through the Snap Shots add-on for Internet Explorer or Firefox. These add-ons bring the usefulness of Snap Shots to all websites, and takes everything you love about Snap Shots for your website and puts on the websites you visit every day. Snap has profiled a large group of the most popular sites that you use every day, including Google, Yahoo!, MySpace, ...

I heard about Xiine on .NET Rocks and figured I would see what all the hype is about. It is a reader for magazines, books and other formatted content built on .NET 3.0 technologies including WPF. Future releases are also support RSS from what they were saying on the show. I have to say that the interface is pretty clean. The one thing that I notice is missing from the current release is discoverability from within the application directly. The main navigation uses a bread crumb menu, which I find ...
This is the question I asked myself today, just to see what kind of answer I would give myself. These are the kinds of questions I've had time to ask myself wince surgery (02JUL07) to correct a hernia and a problem with my Ileostomy. It's weird, I, like millions of other people, get up every morning, drink my coffee and read my RSS feeds (Hey what can I say, I'm a geek) then head of to work. And like so many others I never stop to ask myself questions like this one, mainly because I really don't ...
So I have been tagged by Russ on the Justice Grey challenge. Well here it goes: Continue my Current Reading Habit - For the last two years I have been reading about one technology book a month and I plan to maintain this habit by reading: Practices of an Agile Developer, The Pragmatic Programmer (reread), Beautiful Code, Object Thinking (reread), and Pragmatic Project Automation. Increase the signal to noise ratio of my feeds - Prune my 125 feeds down to 50. Get rid of the trash and keep the gold. ...
I just heard about Justice Gray's blog challenge from the latest episode of Hanselminutes while running today. Although I think his plan to read one developer book a week for the next six months is rather insane, I agree with the premise that setting specific goals publicly is probably the best way to hold yourself accountable. Here are my goals for the next 6 months: Add Tools to my Developer Toolbox - My productivity and troubleshooting skills would plummet if I were to suddenly stop using utilities ...

UPDATE (12/17/2007): My blog has moved. This post is now located at: http://jason.whitehorn.ws/2... I set out to write a RSS parser in C#. I know that several existing libraries are available for .NET that parse RSS streams, but out of curiosity I wanted to give it a go anyway. Before I get started, for those interested in RSS libraries for .NET checkout RSS.NET or RSSConnect, to just name two. As .NET developers we have some really powerful tools available to us that ...
I'm currently have a sharepoint server running WSS 3.0 and I have individual team calendars, and also seperate calenders for each user of WSS. What I'm trying to accomplish is when a team leader publishes a new Calendar event, that members that are apart of that team will also get an entry or event notification into there calender that an event was published into the team calendar. I see no way of doing this unless subscribing to the calendar using Outlook, which would just not be possible. Is there ...
The Microsoft Office Interactive Developer Map is a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application that helps developers visualize the different programs, servers, services, and tools that will help them build solutions. It allows them to drill down to each product and technology and learn about new features, objects, Web services, namespaces, and schemas required to extend Microsoft Office and build custom Office Business Applications (OBAs). The map is a living document that provides links to ...
I've often heard the phrase "seven year itch" in reference to the inclination of people to become unfaithful after seven years of marriage. I guess seven years has some mystical or mathematical significance when it comes to the human attention span. It's easy to imagine such a milestone leading someone to "climb the stupid tree", as a good friend of mine is fond of saying. However, sometimes I think that this general restlessness can be a positive force in life and help prod us out of a patch of ...
ASP.NET RSS Toolkit, the interesting library originally developed by Dmitry, which I've posted about by the time it moved to CodePlex. I and M. Tayseer used it in a couple of production websites and it was pretty useful, now shipped a new release with intrestting features: This release adds many new features to support other syndication formats including RDF, ATOM and OPML. It adds aggregation of the feeds contained in an OPML and generates a much strong-typed binding to the RSS feed. Additional ...
Today, we have plenty of rss sources like syndic8, feedburner and many more which i am not bringing down or about which i dont know. Now, the problem with this RSS repos is that they are too many RSS sources, but only few are very useful. To get really useful list of RSS , Lets' say , you have imported list of RSS , but you dont really know which ones to prefer to users.One thing , you can do, mark RSS feeds with different values on basis of some criterila that will bring the useful on top others. ...
What!? I hear you say, where did 1.0 go? Did I miss it? No, unfortunately some of the version numbers got out of synch in the initial release. The .Addin file was reporting 0.9, but the assembly was reporting 1.0.x.x so the only way to get the versioning back in order and get the install script working (an earlier version will not overwrite a later one) was to jump to v1.1. I fixed issue in the DeployMDXScript feature of BIDSHelper in that deploying the script in this manner does not build the SSAS ...
According to a recent article on TechCrunch, the RSS feed management company Feedburner is in the closing stages of being acquired by Google for around $100M US. According to their source, who is rumored to be close to the deal, it is all cash and mostly upfront. The deal is likely to close in 2-3 weeks ...

Brain Ritchie has written an excellent post mentioning the steps to RSS enable your Subversion Change Log. You can check it here.

Thanks Brain and Martin Pittenauer for your contribution.

One of the "staples" of the Tech·Ed experience has always been the Virtual TechEd site. This year, Microsoft is changing things around a little bit and making the site live year round in order to extend the Tech·Ed experience before, during, and after the conference. As part of the new experience, the site has undergone a major facelift, and the home page is broken down into 4 sections: News & Happenings Oline Sessions Tech·Ed RSS Feeds Other Resources As I was browsing the site, I noticed that ...

The great folks at EventPoint (the company that coordinates Tech·Ed for Microsoft and is responsible for the Schedule Builder) have updated the RSS feed I was using to generate the Internet Calendars to include the rest of the sessions as well as some additional data that made my life much easier. (Thanks, Andy!) I have updated the calendars, so if you downloaded these as a subscription it should have been automatically updated. If not, you can download them from the following links. I have also ...
[edit: 16 May 2007] The calendars have been updated and a few new ones added. Check this post for more details. [/edit] Even though the Tech·Ed 2007 Schedule Builder is live, it is just as cumbersome (in my opinion) to use as ever. I had hoped that with the advent of AJAX, Silverlight, and the other interactive web technologies the schedule builder would have been more...interactive. The idea of having to pick a time period from a drop down list that contains more than 20 items and constantly having ...
Anyone visiting digg tonight was definitely in for a surprise. There are a few (hundreds? thousands? tens of thousands?) users that are angry with digg and their decision to take down a post earlier today. The post that was taken down contained the HD-DVD decryption key that can be used in Linux to watch HD-DVD movies. The original submitter has his story in more details here. The users have now flooded digg with fake stories, each one attacking digg's decision to remove the story/key, and also publishing ...
MIX 07 is happening right now in Las Vegas!!! Some of you might have viewed Ray Ozzie's Key Note as well as Scott Guthrie's Key Note few hours back. At Mix 07 the world is waiting to see our latest announcements and our next steps in the future of computing. With SilverLight and Windows Live reaching new heights in the scale of software and services or Software + Services, the world is set for a turn around on the way Enterprises and people use computers, software and the internet. You can catch ...
We all know it. We all try to follow it. GeeksWithBlogs.net is a community with many lifelong geeks. Many of them programmers. In the last year with constant research I feel that I have come futher than I have in the last five years. It goes to show that programming really is a way of life. Nowadays I live, breath eat and sleep it. Don't get me wrong, I firmly believe that you need to take breaks every once in awhile. It's good to be immersed in new ideas and methodologies, but you need to step away ...
At first I was a little shocked... I wasn't quite sure how to feel and I wasn't sure if what I was feeling was anger or fear - or both. I found out a few days ago that starting next month I was going to have to expect a little less each month from my job. A little = 1/3 of my existing monthly income. Ouch. It is supposed to only be for a short time, but I can't count on that now that I live in Mexico. So, having said that, I apologize up front for the repositioning of the advertising and the addition ...
Notes From Day One - Session One We had the normal introduction session this morning where VMware really seem to be pushing their virtual appliances. These are essentially virtual machines which are prebuilt with their O.S. and apps already installed and ready to go, So you don't have to go through the rigmarole of reading the instruction manual and putting 3 Cd's in. They will also be releasing the manager for their new Ace Product as a V.A. They hope that software suppliers will catch in and start ...
I've added Snap Preview Anywhere to my blog. It generates a popup window with a preview of the site for links in my posts. Firefox users will recognize the same technology in the GooglePreview extension, and extension that does this for Google searches. If you're looking at this post in an RSS aggregator, or off the GWB main feed, you probably won't see it. You'll have to go to my blog directly to see it in action. Still, it works if you get redirected there, or click on the link in your aggregator ...
A couple of weeks ago I've had the pleasure of attending outbrain.com's "friends night out". A small get together of bloggers, outbrain.com crew and sympathizers. Not only was it great fun, it was also educational as Dr. Nahum Sharfman (of shopping.com fame) gave a short talk about the recent web 2.0 startup boom. Dr. Sharfman's bottom line seems to be that nobody knows what's going to catch on and what isn't, with the one exception that a viable business model should be the prerequisite for anyone ...
In the world of RSS and newsreaders there is a war of preferences going around over how people prefer to read their feeds. Categorized by feed, type of feed, or as a “river of news.” In other words first in, first displayed, in a long list and you simply scan top-to-bottom. I have tried both and IMO both have merit. River of news lets you see everything in an instant, and I find it useful for quickly locating important event. Then I read the “normal” stuff later on. When I am ready to consume all ...

I like using online RSS readers because they are easy to access and they stay up and polling for content.  I don't need to worry about having a reader up and running.

Lately I have been noticing that Bloglines is missing posts.  I had a similar problem with NewsGator.  Almost as if they are not polling for updates as frequently has they should.

Anyone have a good recommendation for an online RSS feed reader?

So I installed Office 2007 today and was playing around with Outlook. Wow, it loaded up my RSS feeds and has a feed reader. Cool. Hmm, does it have a news reader also? Searched around for a while and couldn't find it. It turns out it doesn't! Why? It'd be nice to have all that stuff in one app!

This week marked the release of my latest book - Professional XML. I wrote this with friend Kent Sharkey and some other authors including Michael Kay (editor of the XSLT specification and other things). This book came out really nice and after quickly covering XML - goes straight into covering all the major technologies that are based upon XML. The Amazon site doesn't seem to provide the table of contents at the moment, so here it is: 1. XML Syntax 2. XML Editors 3. XHTML and CSS 4. XFL-FO 5. Document ...
Pete over at the blog "Do as I say, not as I do..." recently posted on XNA Portal's RSS feeds. They have a nice little start to some of the bigger feeds. For those that use Netvibes, I have shared my XNA tab full of RSS feeds. I slimmed it back down a little bit so there aren't any more of the dead blogs. Click --> Here <-- to add the page to your netvibes. If you guys have an rss feed let me know and I'll add it to the tab. Thanks Pete, I looked for your name, but I couldn't find it anywhere ...
FYI – in case you haven’t got a concise list like this. In case you hadn’t heard. We have just released the March CTP for “Orcas” and the .NET Framework 3.5. Customers are able to get a VPC with the installed bits from here. As with all CTP’s it is important to have your customers provide any feedback. The .NET Framework 3.5 brings no breaking changes. New technology is being added including LINQ, AJAX, Windows Foundation, WCF and WPF Developer Tools and BCL enhancements. ...
