Absence makes the heart grow fonder?

So… Umm… It’s been a while. A little over six months, to be specific. That would be three months of unrelenting nausea and surprisingly heavy fatigue, followed by three months of desperately trying to catch up on all the “real world” stuff that didn’t get done during those first three months. But now it’s winter, and I’m looking forward to three months of not skiing, so there should be plenty of time for ‘putering (at least once the pesky December holiday season is over), and care and feeding of this blog thing will slowly resume…


For today, I figured I’d address some of the correspondence I’ve shamefully ignored since June. Comments have been moderated and, where appropriate, answered. For those of you who sent me e-mails, here are some replies:


  1. You’re quite correct: a single-line textbox is actually attribute-encoded. Why I didn’t pick up that error in the table while I was working on the double-encoding example is a bit of a mystery…

  2. I do indeed have a solution for automatic HTML-encoding that avoids the double-encoding problem. I actually started working on a framework and series of blogs posts about a week after writing the HTML-encoding post, but I got busy with other stuff and never ended up publishing anything on the topic. Now that I know that at least some folks are interested, I’ll try to find some time to update the framework and explain how it works and how to use it.

  3. A version of Bordecal.ImportsSorter that works with Visual Studio 2008 will be coming soon-ish. It ranks right below work, holiday preparations, and future offspring concerns on my to-do list. (Hmm… That probably doesn’t sound like I’m likely to find much time to work on it any time soon. However, please rest assured that I want this new version at least as much as you do, and I’m highly motivated to work on it whenever I have the time and energy.)

My apologies to those of you who have been waiting far too long for those answers. I’ll try to do better over the next little while (or at least until I drop out of sight again in about three months)…



P.S.: In case you haven’t figured it out yet and are worried about my health, please don’t be. I do have an abdominal parasite, but it’s mammalian and quite benign. ;) For those of you who are curious, it’s a girl, and she’s due on February 29th.
