Silverlight Anonymous Type Binding Gotcha
When Silverlight databinding evaluates a binding expression, it does one of two things. If the object it is bound to inherits from FrameworkElement and there is a DependencyProperty matching the binding expression, it uses FrameworkElement.GetValue to retrieve the value [simplified]. If not a FrameworkElement and not a DependencyProperty, Silverlight falls back to using reflection to retrieve the values. This is problematic if you attempt to data bind to an anonymous type.

Unusual IE7b3 bug: SYSTEM applications cannot start programs using Process.Start (part 2)
Since I originally posted this in July, I've gotten absolutely nowhere with Microsoft. I have, however, had a couple hundred google searches for things like “IE7 beta process.start error“. Since then my bug was closed, someone else reopened it, and I've found another similar bug where the IE7 beta and RC take over shell execute and deny programs from being launched. Luckily for me, our workaround was to simply not use the shell (ShellExecute=false) but that definitely isn't an option ......

Unusual IE7b3 bug: SYSTEM applications cannot start programs using Process.Start
UPDATE (9/7/2006):Microsoft closed my bug without really looking at it. I got “not an IE problem“. Luckily, someone else has picked up the cause and resubmitted with a bit more information for me. If you are having this problem and want it fixed (because ShellExecute=false may not work for you), then go here and vote/validate the bug:https://connect.microso... UPDATE 2 (9/18/2006):Microsoft closed the new bug again without really looking ......

iMotion Edgeware Platform 5.2: Workflow Service Providers

A link between event controls in the iMotion Edgeware Platform represents the flow of data in the form of an event and delivered through a method invocation and is the primary way for event controls to “talk” to each other. This in-band communication may not always be the most appropriate way for one event control to execute another event control and an out-of-band method of communication may be more appropriate. ...

You just knew it had to be coming: ASP.NET project in VS2005 is back
Scott Guthrie is posting that they're developing a new project type for ASP.NET projects in Visual Studio 2005. I still have no idea why that crackpot (note, "crackpot" is meant to be funny) thought that removing the concept of a project from ASP.NET would sit well with people who had been creating ASP.NET applications for four or more years (with another year for betas). Enough people have complained publicly about it (I have, though not very vocally) that they're putting it back in. And I don't ......
