Technodrone there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for.
Someone that I respect in software development recommended this book to me. Pragramatic Thinking & Learning by Andy Hunt. I got it in the mail last evening and have already read half of it. He talks about the Dreyfus Model Stages. These stages apply to any profession and were first implemented in the early 1980s with nurses. He says skills in a ......

I enjoyed this article this morning. I observe and play the chicken game constantly. I always called it the "Is it done yet game". As the recession worsens we are afraid to say "that enhancement to the web site will say 2 weeks to code and a two weeks to test/fix". Instead we are told do it all in 40 hours knowing there is no stinkin way that is gonna ......

I came into the office on January 2, 2009 and found out one of my applications was not finding files that have names based on the day of year and month of year. Here is the problem, my code was looking for a file called 'thepreciousfile200911.txt" instead of "thepreciousfile200901001.

The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely." To me this principle promotes work life ......

The built in validator controls can remove the tedious code needed to traditionally check user input and I have found that using them in very simple pages is a great time saver but using them on a complex page where valid input varies depending on any number of factors it is better to verify input programmatically, tell the user if there were any problems, ......

Business owners wanted a report with a hard coded date range rather than a date range prompt. Customer is always right, especially in an economic downturn. I could not figure out how to do this and after a couple of days of trial and error I got this to work. I hope this saves someone some time. --get past 30 days [Business View].[Sales Tracking Transaction].[Sale ......

If detailed error logging is needed you can use the following to get the page name as well as the method name that triggered the error. In my case I log errors to the event log as well as store them in the database using log4net. I like getting back detailed error messages so I can more easily find and fix the related bugs. using System.Diagnostics; ......

Very hastily put together but I think it may help someone trying to deal with getting controls to communicate with each other when they are not on a single page example master page, content page,user control, server control.... http://geekswithblogs.net/t... ......
