Yes, it's true. I've packed my bags and am moving to a new location. For those of you with RSS Readers, please change your feed subscriptions to use my new feedburner location. I do not plan to do any new posts on GeeksWithBlogs with the possible exception of a few redirection reminders. For the rest of you, you can see my shiny new blog on caffeinatedCoder.com. It may not look like it, but I've spent quite a few late nights over the past few weeks dusting off my PHP and CSS skills so that I could ...
Yesterday, NewsGator announced that it is making all if its RSS reader applications free. That includes FeedDemon (which I love and have been using for years), NetNewsWire, NewsGator Go, NewsGator Online, and NewsGator Inbox. Individual downloads ...
Many of you know that I've participated in many Code Camps over the last year, both as a speaker and as an attendee. The one thing that I've noticed is that there seems to not be a lot of resources for planning and organizing a code camp, which leads to very different experiences for speaker signup, schedule planning, etc. Jeffrey Palermo just announced a new open source project hosted on GoogleCode that promises to do just that. CodeCampServer is a free, open source Code Camp management web application ...
Ok, this isn't necessarily up-to-the-minute news, as Sean posted about his leaving Microsoft on December 20. However I'm not sure if many outside the MVP program had any exposure to him, and my brief meeting with him left enough of an impression that I'd be blogging about him here. At the Canadian UG Summit this past November we held it simultaneously with the Canadian MVP Summit in Vancouver as well. We (the user group leaders) were invited to attend the MVP keynote and discussion period. Sean delivered ...
Richard Seroter has posted an update on his BizTalk RSS feed generation using RSSBus. He's using RSSBus to generate perf metrics feeds for his BizTalk applications. In this post, Richard talks about how he uses the RSSBus caching features to avoid the extra load on his BizTalk databases, and shows how he's integrated the resulting feed into a web part.

It's time for the next installment of the monthly Caffeinated Codey awards, where the link love flows for my favorite posts from the month. For Most Obsessive Blog Comment Recovery Operation...Eric Sink for his post Be My Support Group. After losing a lengthy blog comment due to a random Firefox error, Eric describes his multi-hour effort to recover the data using a packet sniffer and some url-decoding. Eric has long since joined the dark side of the force (business and marketing), so can you imagine ...

We are moving the event registration to Eventbrite, which has added a lot of new capabilities and flexibility for us in terms of allowing people to register for the meetings.

From that page, you will see all of the events we are hosting, some information about the chapter, and a link to subscribe to an RSS feed to ...
The much-talked about MVC Framework that Microsoft is working on was released last week as part of the ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions. It also has some other pretty cool stuff, including Dynamic Data controls, Ajax history support, ADO.NET Data Services, updated support for Silverlight and the ADO.NET Entity Framework. Once you download it, here are some great resources to check out: Scott Guthrie's 4 part tutorial on building an MVC based application Phil Haack (the PM for the MVC Framework) Rob Conery ...
I just read Don Box's Languages and Beauty Contests post and was surprised to see him praising the aesthetic value of VB.NET. Am I mistaken or has the collective self-esteem of millions of VB.NET programmers just risen considerably? Perhaps the word 'just' is a bit of a stretch since the post was actually written several weeks ago. I would have come across it sooner, but I am currently living in mortal fear of my RSS Reader which has somehow managed to swell in size to a couple of hundred subscriptions ...
Just started using Feedburner for my site rss, along with the integration support from GWB. It works fine! From now my Feedburner RSS URL is: http://feeds.feedburner.com... Also GWB provided support for Twitter, which I have also started using. I think Twitter is going to another nice Web 2.0 feature. Nice stuff! Also, I said good bye to Google Ad Sense, as I have seen it's not providing enough profit (0.23 USD in 30 days!) for thousands of page loads. I wonder how Google do billion dollar ...

Last month, Scott Guthrie announced the ASP.NET MVC framework which allows for built-in support for the Model View Controller based architecture. Since that time there has been a flurry of activity from Microsoft to demo the technology to the world and make demos readily available. In case you missed it, here are some of the features: Clean separation of concerns. All core contracts of the MVC framework are testable and mockable Highly pluggable to use NHibernate, Spring.NET, Windsor, and other great ...
So just this morning when i was looking at all the rss feeds i was supprised to see that Trika had published a post on her blog about a new exam that is released.

The new exam is labeled 70-351: TS: Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2006, Configuring The MCTS certification is labeled: ISA Server 2006, Configuration I will schedule this exam as soon as possible, too bad ...
So how bad can it get? I'd suggest you hold on to your seats and buckle up, things could get bumpy from here in? Do check out Jim Rogers comments at the bottom of the post. “This is worse than the S&L crisis. This is the first time – this is the worst credit bubble we’ve ever had in American history. No – never in American history have people been able to buy a house with no money down…never. That’s never happened anytime in the world. So, we have the worst credit bubble. It’s going to take a ...

Hi there everyone. I'm just writing to let everybody know that I am consolidating my blog with my fotolog and my YouTube into one place alone, where I will also post small things, links and news. This is my Tumblr, which you can access in http://fceotto.tumblr.com. All of these will remain being updated for the moment at least, but the consolidated results will be presented there. The RSS feed for this one can be accessed here: http://fceotto.tumblr.com/rss See you there ...

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 ...
Sam Ruby pointed out some of the changes that would be required for Feed Validator to support the new RSS Profile. The RSS Profile is the result of checking popular feed reader capabilities in order to put together a "best practices" document for feed publishers. I haven't gotten to read through the entire profile yet, but here are some interesting things I noticed while reading through Sam's validator changes: Encoding - the profile says to use hexadecimal entity encoding (ie, & instead ...
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 ...
A couple months ago Richard Seroter posted about how he created RSS feeds for BizTalk metrics - traffic by application and suspended messages by application. Now with the latest release of RSSBus (RC1) - a new connector, BizTalkOps, is available. BizTalkOps includes operations that generate the following feeds: biztalkAllServiceInstances Return the list of all service instances, independent on their state. biztalkApplications List all BizTalk applications and their status biztalkApplicationStatus ...

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 ...

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 ...
Continuing on with RSSBus scripts showing how to pipe Google Calendar to Twitter and Flickr to Twitter, here's my last Twitter RSBScript. Here's a script to pipe any existing RSS feed to Twitter. I wanted to sync my blog with my twitter, so now everytime I post a new blog entry, it will be added to my Twitter status. Here's the url: http://www.textbox1.com/app... blog_url=http%3A%2F%2Ffeeds... &twitter_password=mypas... &twitter_user=mytwitter... ...
UPDATE: For full TwitterMinder documentation, see this TwitterMinder article. In my last two posts I mentioned my recent introduction to Twitter (after having watched so many people blab about it for the past few months). So today I went ahead and published my Google Calendar to Twitter RSBScript, and gave it the name TwitterMinder: TwitterMinder will check your Google Calendar for events that are occuring in the next hour, and if it finds any, they will be automatically submitted to your Twitter ...
If you are using Twitter, let me know so I can follow you. Yep, I'm on Twitter now, finally. I decided to give it a shot and see what all the hoopla is about. Is it really that great? We'll see. While I'm checking it out - I decided to look at its API and look into whether or not I should throw together a Twitter connector for RSSBus. The API is very compact - simple and to the point. All simple HTTP get and put. All of the API methods return data in several formats - it looks like all of the gets ...
I've blogged about Snap Shots in the past and think it's an excellent addition to any website.

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 ...
