Exceptioneer – Handling and Reporting Exceptions

Exceptioneer is a product created by Pixel Programming. Phil Winstanley, one of the founding members of Pixel Programming, recently sent me an invitation to try out Exceptioneer. No pun intended, their concept and product is exceptional! It’s really easy to setup and is a great way to log exceptions and review them visually. They include a code snippet, stack trace, have a direct link to Google to search for a potential solution, and allow you to share the summary with others without giving them access to your application. To see it’s current capabilities, take about 10 minutes to view their … Continue reading Exceptioneer – Handling and Reporting Exceptions

Technology Related Links – Post #1

I’m going to try to put together a list of links I grab and post them to intermittent blog posts. I’d like to do a post like this once a day or at the very least once a week, but let’s see where things go. 🙂 Anyway, here’s the first batch of links summarized by technology. Some of these may be a couple of weeks old, so please bare with me as the first list is quite lengthy. I’ll also add in recently released books, software releases and updates, and upcoming technology events. If you are looking to follow this … Continue reading Technology Related Links – Post #1

Classic ASP Support in IIS 7 and IIS 7.5

I’m working on reverse engineering an application that was written about 8 years ago in Classic ASP. When I first hit the site, one of the things I noticed was that the traditional error messages weren’t displayed. You can turn this on by double-clicking on the ASP icon under IIS, finding compilation, and expanding debugging properties. You’ll see that one of the properties in IIS is called Send Errors To Browser. Set that property to true and you’re all set! One last thing, be sure that you have Classic ASP enabled in IIS. If not, go to add/remove programs to … Continue reading Classic ASP Support in IIS 7 and IIS 7.5

Main Announcements at MIX 09

Channel 10 has posted a great summary of the announcements from today’s MIX 09 events. One of the items that they didn’t post is that ASP.NET MVC 1.0 has been released. Be sure to check it out!

Microsoft Releases the ASP.NET MVC 1.0 Release Candidate

First off, congratulations to the Microsoft ASP.NET team for their hard work on the MVC out-of-band releases over the past few months. It’s nice to see these OOB releases on Codeplex. Earlier, Scott Guthrie announced that the team has released the ASP.NET MVC 1.0 RC1. A release candidate is very similar to an RTM release except for the fact that a few minor bugs still may be fixed between the current release and RTM. Scott has a list of the new features in the RC on his blog. Be sure to check it out!

Crystal Reports Merge Modules for Visual Studio 2008

Since SAP purchased Business Objects for $6.7 billion in 2007, Crystal Reports deployment for Microsoft Visual Studio has become more difficult to deploy. Instead of choosing a built-in merge module, you now much visit the SAP site and download the necessary files for your environment. I guess it’s time to begin moving reports over to a different format.

Technology Highlights of 2008

What fitting way to end 2008 than a list of my own version of technology-related highlights of 2008. Dell’s Acquisition of Equallogic – Ok. So technically this happened in November of 2007. But the acquisition wasn’t completed until early this year. After review of the devices, they are definitely a cost-effective NAS solution. What a great way to introduce storage solutions to small businesses. ASP.NET MVC – Again, this technically happened in 2007, but my first experiences really happened this year. What a great, clean way to build web applications. Flip MinoHD – When Pure Digital introduced the Flip Ultra, … Continue reading Technology Highlights of 2008

2 Great ASP.NET Podcasts

I’ve been quite busy working on a side project in which I’ll post more details very soon. However, I came across the two latest ASP.NET Podcasts in which I thought I’d share: Caching with ASP.NET 3.5 SP1 ASP.NET AJAX with JQuery
