So I am back to blogging ... but I am going to be posting different types of things in my site at http://www.vbasp.net.  I'll be talking about what I am doing in the community, for INETA, at Infragistics and other cool stuff.

While I'm on the subject of rules engines (which seem to be my main blogging topic currently), I should report that during the last two or three weeks, I took the plunge and expanded (rather a lot) the Wikipedia article of the Rete algorithm. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Originally, I used the text of an explanation I wrote a year or so ago. I got some kickback on that, with claims of inaccuracy and other claims that the text was too convoluted (what, me write convoluted content ...
Windows Live Writer (Beta) is out !!! One of the coolest features is that, it is so simple in use and gives the comfort of working with a word document. I tried posting a blog to my MSN Spaces and it was really a cake-walk for a beginner like me using Blog Tools to post a blog. I have heard about other Blog engines like DasBlog, but I am sure when it is Microsoft's way, it always rocks similar to its other products. When I tried posting to Blogger, it had put a temporary post into my account for ...
News came out recently that Hollywood studios have pulled backing for the planned Halo movie (based on the game Halo and Halo 2 for the XBox, in case you just crawled out of some non-geeky bomb shelter recently). I was very happy with this, because I'm a firm believer that you don't need to move a story to a different media unless there's a good reason to. How often do we hate seeing amazing books ported as a spectre of its literary self onto the big screen, not for artistic merit or furthering the ...
I've decided to start blogging in part because I feel guilty about getting great information from a lot of BizTalk blogs out there and not contributing anything myself. There are some really great bloggers out there that clearly have a very good understanding of BizTalk. Some that come to mind are: Charles Young (http://geekswithblogs.net/... Tomas Restrepo (http://www.winterdom.com/w... Scott Colestock (http://www.traceofthought.... and Stephen Thomas (http://www.biztalkgurus.co... ...
Today i start blogging with Microsoft technologies. I will be back soon with some Hot Top.

Just today I found this article
http://geekswithblogs.net/jjulian/archive/2006/08/16/88158.aspx
by Jeff Julian about using live writer, then I realized that I heard about blogging through office 2007.

Well with using the info found in Jeff's article it was just a matter of a few steps to start using office to blog.
so this Is actually my first blog entry using office 2007.

Silver Key is known as a big fan of smart people, especially developers. You can realize it from our exams we do publish to the developer community, or from checking the geeks at the office working with the latest technologies, even if these are not in final releases. We use Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005 to develop applications using .NET Framework 3.0, Iron Python, and ASP.NET 2.0 Ajax Extensions (formerly known as ATLAS), applying some important methodologies like design patterns for coding ...
Lets pretend that we are creating a blog engine. We are going along modeling our blogging domain until we hit this thought. How do I model a blog post and it comments? My first attempt is simply this:public class BlogPost { //stuff private IList _comments = new ArrayList(); public IList Comments { get { return this._comments; } } } Except what if a post has a gajillion comments and it shows up on the main feed where we don't see the comments. We end up paying the cost of loading the comments even ...
I don't typically blog about work. It's just how I am. I like to keep all areas of my life pretty separate and compartmentalized and work doesn't belong on my blog (although blogging does tend to happen at work, weird....). Anyway. I'm nearing the finish line for a large product. We have a small team assigned to it (just three developers), but it's a huge piece of work. Somewhere along the way, I slipped and fell and went elbow deep into the guts of it. Now that's where I am day in and day out. I'm ...
Yesterday was the first day that I introduced dotnetnuke to my students. I'm using the curriculum that I wrote for Microsoft with them. I've discovered that there already are some changes in the dotnetnuke starterkit that was not there when I wrote the curriculum. The change is a good one because it makes an install to be a breeze without any modifications at all. In any event, I'll be blogging about the web design class that will be using the curriculum. The first day we talked about portals and ...
You may have read here or on Scoble, that someone from Apple has started blogging, albeit anonymously. I applaud him, and I hope he's successful in bringing blogging to Apple, but I doubt he will be. Let me be frank; I don't own any Apple products. Ok, two. I bought my wife an iPod Mini about a year and a half ago. Oh, and I play around occasionally with a fully licensed copy of MacOS X using PearPC. That's it. That's the extent to which Apple has invaded my life. There are a number of reasons for ...
I am writing this from an internet cafe.I don't know what to write .Infact,I have been a regular reader of some of the geeks with blogs for quite along time. Just for a craze I registered ,and now ....I have to start writing . Blogging is an emotional experience,indeed.I know,many of our posts may remain unread.But still you do post .Because it gives you a kind of energy of confronting with the world. Why most of the programming languages starts with a "Hello world " pragramme.I came to this conclusion ...

I've finally moved to a personal server for blogging - all future entires will be posted at http://www.thousandtyone.com/blog

 

 

This time we left the office. We were the same 3 in the last journey to the Ramadan Tent (we all smiled when we passed by it). We got another American friend (a cool calm girl who likes to be called “Nisrin” [I see it usually written as “Nisreen”. However you spell it, this is an Egyptian name as far as I know! – Update: I found now that she’s an Arab; her parents are; but, she lived all her life in American, and has the nationality] that Dody and Kent seemed to ...
I remember a couple months back I got an e-mail from Chris telling me about the Community-Credit web site. So the concept seemed pretty cool (Stupid prizes for smart people) and I signed up. Well a little while later Chris won the Grand Prize (July 2006 contest) and was pretty excited so I started thinking about keeping track of things more. September was a busy month for me with the Greater Charleston .NET User group meeting (I’m the VP), Code Camp 2.0 (2.5 sessions presented), a Microsoft ...
I have posted a new page on my website at sws.lhps.org. The page is called XNA Development for students. On the page will be assignments that my students will be working on along with links to terrific XNA sites. I'm optimitic that my students can continue their learning in the AP class and juggle learning XNA as well. Maybe I'm too much of an optimist? I'll be blogging later.
This was a good assignment to do for my web design students. They have been learning how to create web pages with html and how to use dreamweaver to create pages and manage sites. In addition, they were trained on good design vs bad design. As mentioned in my last blog, this assignment was to review the 6 designs on Dan's blog and then review them as to what you liked about them and what you didn't. So here's what some of my students had to say about the designs: For the Coding4Fun website redesign, ...

Finally... I have joined the world of blogging. Blogging is definitely a way to share ideas and learn from one another. Hopefully, I can provide some insights on various technologies from my personal experiences. I am sure I will learn a great deal from all the visitors.

 

All I can say… let it begin.

As in any multipart posts, I have to link to the first and second parts. This is the last part of the post if you haven’t realized yet ;) This part is one more thank you to great Cyra and Catherine. So, PLEASE ACCEPT MY PERSONAL THANK YOU MESSAGES, AND ALL ArabTeam2000 COMMUNTY MEMBERS REGARDS AND THANK YOU, ESPECIALLY THE TOUR ATTENDEES ALSO, THANS GOES TO Ahmed Adel & MICROSOFT EGYPT, FOR PROVIDING US WITH NUMBER OF REGISTERATION OPPORTUNITIES, SO THAT WE COULD ATTEND THE TOUR IN THE ...
Mary Jo Foley Leaving Ziff Davis for ZDnet - this news just in courtesy of Bink.nu...... Mary Jo Foley dropped a bombshell this afternoon, announcing she was leaving MicrosoftWatch to branch out on her own after 11 years at ZiffDavis. What are her plans for the future? LonghornBlogs has the exclusive Exit Interview. RWM: You’ve been covering Microsoft for ZiffDavis for a very long time. What made you to decide to go solo?MJF: It just seemed like the time was right. It’s a bloggers’ ...
Now I noticed this on Engadget a few weeks back, but have only just got a round to blogging it. Interestingly enough, while filling up the car this morning I noticed a sign on the fuel pump that stated "sorry for the delay in activating the pump while we record your number plate" Now I do not condone speeding, regardless of the speed I (or anyone else) drives at, but what really gets me is that it is such an arbitary rule on something that really should be subjective? Can anyone really try and argue ...
I was approached by a recruitment agent who was trying to recruit for BT... she was doing a good job but unfortunately for her BT let her down with their interview process and their pre interview web 2.0 questionnaire. The questions were poor to say the least and showed a real lack of understanding of Web 2.0. It does make me worry about their future performance as a company as they don't seem to be able to keep up with current web technologies. Here are the questions for you to look over, feel free ...
This is the kind of post that would usually go on my "other Blog" since that's where most of my technology posts go. Also, that is where I like to play it safe with what I write :). But since I've been blogging about the Open source thingy that I've started working on (I still can't believe I've already started wasting my weekends behind coding for a self commitment :)) I am going to go ahead and post all related material to that initiative here. Code-Smith (this is a Paid Product with 30 day trial) ...
Now I did notice this post by Michel at Thincomputing a week or so ago and it is building all the time, they're now up to 14 Bloggers? Although some are not quite as enthusiastic as others? Kudos though to Sam Johnston from the Dublin office for getting things off the ground. Although it's interesting to note that this would appear to have been established on the 14/15th of August and Citrix's own internal document regarding Citrix corporate blogging policy is dated 22nd of August? ;-)) I would imagine ...
It looks like Mark Russinovich has started settling in to Microsoft as he has now started blogging at:Mark Russinovich's technical blog covering topics such as Windows troubleshooting, technologies and security.The RSS feed is http://blogs.technet.com/ma... I must confess that the level of detail sometimes leaves me floundering so I jump to the end to find out the answer, but what is really fantastic is that he does take the time to patiently explain how he managed to solve the ...
So, it is that time of year and the leagues have risen. I am in two this year and one draft is down and one to go mid-next week. I am happy with how the Crushers have shaped up in the big and competitive league that we drafted for already. I mean, I got Peyton Manning, need I say more. Others in the league are blogging their Java app experience and questions about ESPN's fantasy technology - like Jana. All I know for sure is that the system has improved since last season and it was really easy to ...
Now that editing a post is possible with Third-Party blogging tools, I thought I would write my views on editing a post. If you don't use and aggregator, then you probably aren't aware of what happens when you update a post. The majority of aggregators will add that item as a new post and if you don't highlight the updated portion, it may irritate readers. I know it irritates me. If you must edit, do it as quick as possible from the time you publish. If you think you will update a post when writing, ...
I’ve mostly stayed away from blogging about DLinq and other .NET 3.0 goodies, because I think they’re too far out in the future to be worth that much attention. However, I do think that Linq is worth keeping an eye on because I think it’s going to be one of the best parts of (insert .NET language here) 3.0. And to go along with DLinq, there are some massive changes coming to ADO.NET. I’ll follow up on these more when I feel the time is right, but for now, it’s worth ...
Courtesy of the latest issue of WXPNews, I came across a very cool new blogging tool, named Windows Live Writer. This is a desktop application that makes it very easy to write new blog posts by providing a WYSIWYG ("What You See Is What You Get") editor that reminds me of a slimmed down version of Microsoft Word. Windows Live Writer has some pretty cool features, like the ability to automatically spell check your blog posts before posting them and automatically saving a draft every x minutes. While ...

Ok, I'm picky - I don't like Live Writers bugs but I admit it's new so I ll be patient., I don't like the way that Zoundry rewrites my HTML for me; I consider that to be very rude :D

I'm a good programmer, so I will just write my own blogging interface , I think - but I just want to ask how to use the Metablogapi.aspx that GWB provides.
Do I connect to is programmatically like it's a web service ?

Gosh, aren't I original :)

Actually, I've just had this blog setup and I'm checking out the Live Writer beta from Microsoft. So far, so good.

Well, I'm a .Net developer from Nottingham in the UK, I'm interested any any number of geeky subjects but my current passion is for Patterns, MVP and proper Data Structures; Nested sets anyone ?

So I'll be blogging about those a bit, I guess :)

At last Microsoft has launched a blog writing tool! Windows Live Writer is a desktop application that makes it easier to compose compelling blog posts using Windows Live Spaces or your current blog service. Blogging has turned the web into a two-way communications medium. Our goal in creating Writer is to help make blogging more powerful, intuitive, and fun for everyone. Writer has lots of features which we hope make for a better blogging experience. Some of the ones we are most excited about include: ...
I was so overwhelmed with the news of becoming a new MVP Lead for Canada that I had to be reminded over MSN to do so (Thanks Kate). So, yes, it is official. I will be the new MVP Lead for all Canadian MVPs. This will be a great challenge to me. My main focus will be on increasing interaction between Canadian subsidiary and Canadian MVPs, and at the same time maintaining the current model for supporting MVPs with their connections to the corp. Talk about a challenge – eh. So, there won’t ...
More to the point, this is not a IT technical company either.... At a customers site at the moment the CEO is actually blogging 2 - 3 times a week on their intranet, and I have started trying to find the time to have a quick glance every now and then. This was posted last week and I thought it worth popping up here? (I have xxxx'd the company name to protect the innocent ;-)+++++ Quote +++++++++++++++++++++++++++... read an interesting article in Fortune magazine (xxxxxxxx is ranked in their Global ...
The Facts OK, as everybody, I had to write my first Windows Live Writer post, like everybody else did, that's what you are reading right now! If you haven't checked it out already, Windows Live Writer is a blog authoring software from Microsoft, which has become a top topic in the blogsphere lately; it's released with an SDK which some people also had good experience with, used mainly for posting to Windows Live spaces, yet supports many other blogging engines including Movable Type, Blogger.com, ...
I decided to give Windows Live Writer a try after hearing reading some good things about it. I have been using BlogJet for awhile and am very happy with it. In fact, Dmitry was a little upset that a bunch of Live Writer's features had seemed to have been pulled from BlogJet. And I can see why he is upset. I think his tool was just beginning to gain traction and take off and now Microsoft has released a free tool that is - for the most part - comparable to BlogJet. I would be upset if I was him as ...
Windows Live Writer - A simple and easy blogging tool Update: Looks like the below error was caused by the Blog server. I was'nt successful in posting new blogs or editing the existing ones. Whenever I click on the Publish button, I get the 'Blog Server Error' popup windows which says: Server Error 0 Occurred The type initializer for "Dottext.Framework.Provider... threw an exception ...
I noticed that our fellow blogging geek, Hope Dagger has his game Admiral Overalls, one of the games from the GWB Game Contest, available in the Game Development Showcase on GameDev.Net. Congrats.
I just discovered this new blogging service called Vox from Sixapart The same people who do Typepad and Movable type It sports the following features features Social netowrking features Friends list tagging High quality , professional themes Integrates with many services amazon iFilm youtube FLickr Photobucket iStockPhoto Allows uploading of music,videos,text of any size Allows hiding certain parts of a post or the entire post from the pubic , only visible to friends Allows posting from a mobile ...
I just returned from a brief vacation with my family in South Florida. I was about as disconnected from technology as I have been in quite some time. I checked my personal email three whole times and never checked my work email (okay I forgot my RSA token!) the whole time. I had a digital camera and an iPod and that about did it. Otherwise it was an all analog time with the wife, kids and family. It is amazing just how much time kids can spend in the water. They would have had me server dinner in ...
Running a consulting practice and maintaining this site is very difficult to do even with two people. We need new skins, some features, and a new blogging engine to be coded based on what I have designed for the next generation GWB, but I just don't have the time. So what are we going to do? Sell the site to another large publisher? I think not! Instead, we are adding employee #2 (I like to claim I am #0 like Jobs) to work on these tasks as well as some others. Today we will be sending our offer ...
I normally don't pay much attention to voyeuristic crap like this, but the title mentioned blogging and murder. So I figured I'd take a peek. Then... I got to this part: “Radel had also dated Rachelle at one time. He was known around town as a pied-piper of sorts who gathered high schoolers to his computer shop where they played video games and dungeons and dragons. It didn't take police long to suspect that Radel... Arrant... or both men had something to do with the murder.” Ummm... ...
Hi GWB, It has been a exciting 2 years of blogging here, GWB was the first technical blog I started and it has come a long way. Now since there are more than technical posts I am concentrating on that and also because of the flexibility that I require; I will be using my personal domain blog as the primary (http://blog.vijay.name) , I will sure be cross-posting my technical posts here at GWB so my current subscribers will still continue getting content. Thanks Jeff for the initial help and oppurtunity. ...
While my solution rebuilds itself, I want to take a second and blog about a great free browser that I've been trying out called Flock. Flock, so far, is a bloggers dream! It presents blog feeds way nicer than IE 7 does, with a really nice "front page" view showing the latest feeds. The layout is nice as well...very easy to quickly scan the posts and see more of them on the screen. Flock also comes with some Flickr hook-ins where you can apparantly do drag and drop through Flock and have the pics ...
So I've been fooling around with DNN for a few days now. Overall I'm very impressed with the product. Like anything else, it has its limitations, but at least I can change things if I need to which I wouldn't have with a lot of other products. However, one of the things that I've found troubling is the lack of documentation. I'm depending on the events module very heavily and there is no documentation that I can find that explains how to use the module. I poked around with the module settings enough ...
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 – Custom Chrome / Branding December 2007 - Update I have moved my blogging to http://www.msftliveblogs.co... I posted this original article there with all of the graphics - check here - http://msftliveblogs.com/mh...

I have started blogging on http://www.geekswithblogs.net/ around a week ago. Previously I blogged in msn space regularly about my current development experiences at http://spaces.msn.com/joycs... Well from the user statistics list everyday I found that only 4/5 readers are coming to my blog space and they are coming from search engines(mostly from Google). I was a bit upset to find this and tried to find a good space where I can put my technical blogs, Unfortunately in internet I could not found ...
This is from the anonymous "El Stevo" via my blog post about the game contest results. Er, I don't get it. Is this some kind of joke? Bob The Fish is just bad. I don't care what the code is like, the finished product is very very amateurish. It's just a collection of poorly made clones of old games that have been done (better) a million times before. How on earth could you say it had great gameplay? I've only played one other of the entries, but it was far superior to Bob. If I were one of the other ...
So before I dive into my extended work week, I thought I'd blog a bit about the week that was here at Geeks with Blogs. Let's take a peek shall we? I just want a HAMMER!Uri Goldstein has a great post about an article on Joel on Software talking about frameworks and how silly the whole framework-movement can be. Ooooo, look at me...I have a Motarola Q!Yeah yeah Driss, we get it: You have a Motarola Q...rub it in our faces why don't you! ;) But seriously, Driss, has a great post about his initial experiences ...
