  • Tim Ewald on WS-StateOfPlay :-)

    Tim Ewald has a great posting over here around the current state of play with the web services stack (the WS-* stack as it seems to get called a lot). I like the comparison between a REST-like approach and a WS-* approach and how Tim sees one of the fundamental...
  • Matt Peitrek on ETW

    Matt Peitrek has written some stuff about Event Tracing for Windows (ETW). I don't think I've ever seen someone refer to this outside of Microsoft before (it's certainly not meant to be secret!) so it's good to see Matt writing about it. It looks like he'll...
  • Xbox 2 chips? Who knows...

    There's an interesting article over here on The Inquirer about when "the next Xbox chip" might be ready. I know no more about it than the article tells me and I guess that's speculation but I liked the code name - Fudo :-)
  • ADO.NET 2.0

    I'd missed this posting from Dino Esposito around features that may not end up showing in ADO.NET V2.0. As Dino says, this might not end up being 100% accurate but it's worth taking a look at. This article does a good job of what is supposed to be in Whidbey...
  • UK House Prices

    No technology in this posting :-) Not being a home owner and living in the UK has been a very bad position to be in over the last couple of years due to the rabid speculation on house prices driving most people without an existing property out of the market...
  • MSDN V2?

    MSDN V2. Check out this posting
  • WS-Enumeration

    I just had a quick flick through the WS-Enumeration spec. In essence, this seems to be standardising a cursor model. An endpoint has a set of information that you want to pull from it that either it or you would like delivered in pieces (perhaps due to size...
  • WS-Transfer

    I've just read the WS-Transfer spec and my simpleton's view of what it's saying is that; 1) We standardise a GET operation against a web-service and we identify the resource we want by providing information in a WS-Addressing header as part of the Endpoint...
  • DailyWTF

    So, I'm often the last to know about stuff that everyone else is already doing but Benjamin told me about the Daily WTF a few weeks ago and I have to say that it's just fantastic. I know a lot of dev's already read this site so I'm not telling most of you something...
  • UK MSDN Connection

    There's some stuff happening on the UK MSDN site that hasn't yet happened worldwide and it's looking pretty impressive. It's called MSDN Connection and, essentially, it allows you to personalise the information that MSDN pushes in your direction based on preferences...
  • Virtual PC Image Performance

    Here's my top tip for the day - it's another very obvious one. If you're working with Virtual PC and you're running a Windows XP image, you can get what seem like markedly better performance from the Virtual PC image if you simply go to the My Computer properties...
  • BizTalk 2004 Competition Winners

    Scott Woodgate's got some links on his blog to the winners of the BizTalk 2004 competition. There's some cracking samples of code that you can look at there and they're all hosted up on GotDotNet. The link is here
  • I need platform support for Blogging

    I think that I need platform support for blogging :-) I use three computers mostly. One of them has FrontPage, RssBandit and Bloggar. I write HTML in FrontPage, copy it to Bloggar and post it up to .Text from there. The second computer doesn't have FrontPage...
  • Debugging .NET Exceptions

  • Hosting the .NET V2.0 Runtime

    CLR Hosting got a little bit more complicated for V2.0 given that one of the key requirements is to be able to host inside of SQL Server and, so, things such as the one-to-one correspondence between a "live" .NET thread and a real OS thread can no longer be...
