Craig Hunt .NET (C#) and whatnot
For instance, browser wars... The following table was taken from this article... http://www.extremetech.com/... Feature Firefox 2 Beta 1 Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 Opera 9.00 Tabbed browsing Yes Yes Yes Add-ins Yes—Extensions Yes—Add-Ons Widgets Themes Yes No Yes—Skins Built-in search with multiple engine ......

The article is here. Kind of makes you wonder how many abstraction layers will be added to .NET in the next few years. Now we have the OS, .NET 2.0, and the additions in .NET 3.0 (WPF, WF, WCF). On top, one could add security and validation layers and others. On the bottom work is being done to abstract away the intrinsics of database access. As WCF, ......

When I switched from SmtpMail to SmtpClient I started getting the following... The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. The server response was: 5.7.3 Client was not authenticated The following fixed it for me (though I did see some posts from people where this didn't do the trick) SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient(smtpHost);client... ......

Just wanted to provide a simple example that takes advantage of a few classes that are out there (in .NET 1.1 and later) for generating XSD documents because I am not sure they are widely known. Sure, you can use XSD.exe if you are going from classes to XSD or XSD to classes, but what if your type information is in a database? The following is loosely ......

If you build services the way I do, you create the XSD and then generate the classes using xsd.exe (instead of the other way around). I like this approach because the service's consumers will need to generate classes too (and if you start with code, they will probably be able to tell). Anyway, each time I run XSD.EXE -c for the first time, I usually ......

I just upgraded my site's bits to .NET 2.0. It was deceptively simple. However, when I went to deploy my latest bits to test, things stopped making sense. From a VS.NET 2003 / .NET 1.1 frame of reference, that is. When I look at the properties of my web site project in VS.NET 2005, I don't see any output information? When I right-click on my site project ......

Something I was testing and thought I would share... While I was testing the performance of traversing DataTables with DataTableReaders vs. foreach I thought I would throw in a twist for kicks. I did one test of each where I looked up the ordinals first and one test each where I referenced the column by name. For example, if I looked up the ordinal ......

Not sure what other people are finding, but from a performance standpoint, my (simple) tests show that for traversing a DataTable... foreach(DataRow row in myTable.Rows) is more often than not faster than... DataTableReader reader = myTable.CreateDataReader() while(reader.Read()) ......

Today I bought an APC universal notebook battery for my Dell laptop at Best Buy. Not only was my laptop model listed on the “Compatibility Guide”, but at the bottom of the guide it said, “FREE! Receive a free “I” tip for Dell notebooks.” However, it didn't say, “Note: The “I” tip is NOT included ......
